Sinking money into the Club. Easy come easy go.
 It's not as if any wealth came from digging ditches.

But some of it may have come from some who were once 'digging ditches'?

Predictable. What else could he reasonably say? He seems obsessed with 'hard work'. All well and good if that work is effective.

I'm surprised you have the temerity to even ask the question.

Just as well that we have the league's best manager and in his own eyes, probably the best owner in world football. I wonder, did he once work for Carlsberg?!

No longer seems applicable more often than not, to West Norfolk. Once again no commentary, yet a number of other non league games, including Boston, are on local BBC Radio.

Personally, I am not really bothered about the communication issues for the rest of the season, as long as the results are good enough to keep the club in the NLN. I am sure a top down review of what goes on at the club will be necessary and be carried out before the start of next season........but get relegated and the whole structure is in jeopardy

Pink, I have to admire your optimism but what gives you confidence that there will be such a review (however necessary) before the start of next season?  I would also be interested in what you think the 'whole structure' currently looks like and why and which bits would be in in jeopardy should we be relegated.  Given that there has been very little in the public domain other than SC saying all is well now, I guess we are all making up our minds based on how much faith we have in SC's word.
It sounds to me that some people think that Cleeve is only trying to get us to the end of the season.Will he not be here for the start of next?

I live in hope, rather than expectation.

For me, new investment or not, nothing will fundamentally change as long as Mr Cleeve remains at the helm. We are there to pay up and to accept what is offered, without question. Human mushrooms, customers?

It sounded as if Paul Jones gained us the point with a fantastic display, including a penalty save.

While you have owners who are prepared to run a full time squad of players and Management when averaging gates of under 1000, then cry wolf when they cannot afford to pay the bills, then these stories will always make for good headlines.

Always the fans who suffer.

I agree that it is the majority of fans who suffer but there are some at all levels who just want 'success' regardless of the source of the funding: the end justifying the means? Let's hope that the new investment works out but with South America and the USA having been explored, where next,
North Korea?

Very true Rod.

Has it been said anywhere exactly what this "investor" is receiving in return for his money?

Is he now or will he become a shareholder?

Apart from exposure to a small part of Norfolk, what exactly is in it for him?

What benefit will he receiving?

B&G....transparency, logic and common sense??? What attracted such an international investor to little old KLTFC? What is in it for him / them? Or did he just feel sorry for us and / or was in thrall to the owner's compelling sales pitch?

Is David Staff still there, have him back anytime. One for the oldies there.

I agree. If only Barrett had David Staff's commitment and application, that would be some player?

Yet another reality check but when will club's at all levels realise that the only logical and sustainable way forward is to live within their means. More casualties will undoubtedly follow.

Getting rid of Barrett will not be “cutting your losses”….  It will be cutting your standard!  Something I believe would be acceptable to many, if it meant replacing ability with effort!!  A move that will assist our downward slide, imho!

Dilly, I am not sure you would find many regulars at the Walks who would consider Barrett's contribution this season as being of NLN standard so how on earth could letting him go be assisting our downward slide?    It isn't a case of replacing ability with effort imo, heaven only knows AL has tried to accommodate him but the truth is we are in the relegation places having carried Josh this season and looks like AL is now thankfully putting the team above an individual.

Barrett's track record in recent years has acknowledged his undoubted ability, which if fully and consistently realised would probably have seen him playing at a higher level. However, unfortunately his work rate, physical conditioning and attitude have been called into question on more than one occasion? At our level therefore and in our current dire situation, he is a luxury player that we can ill afford. In my experience the most successful teams are also usually the hardest working. That great Barcelona team of Messi, Iniesta, Xavi, Villa et al, aside from their exceptional skills were renowned for their work ethic: winning the ball back in the opposition half. They invented the 'high press', which requires individual and collective hard work.

When Lakeland came in Bartley was deemed to be one who was tossing it off so was very quickly shown the door  back to Wimbledon ( where is he now ?).  Seems Barrett is now at it as well.   If he is trying to force the Club into releasing him then might as well grant him his wish.  Pointless allowing a player to steal a wage in the situation we are in.  Get rid, even on a free.  Gives an extra budget to bring someone in who can help get us out of the bottom 4. 

The lad has bundles of quality but pointless if he’s not up for it.

Agreed, money wasted weekly if as appears, he will not play.

So why have him on the bench?

Let's give some credit to BS. That is one hell of a result.
