Most of the interview is on KLTV on YouTube.

Sad to hear the Gaffer is unhappy or perhaps frustrated is a better term.  :worship: :worship:

Just viewed the latest Manager interview.  Is this about to be history repeating itself ?  Maybe the Chairman could make a statement to let us know what the full situation is. 

We have a great Manager an excellent Squad ( albeit small).  We have had a fantastic start to the season and are sitting in a great position.  The fans have bought into it this season big time and gates are massively up.

Come on Mr Cleeve you lost Culverhouse once let’s not see it happen again.

Oh dear, if they’re is cash to spend then we clearly need some additions. If additional signings would affect the long term sustainability of the club unfortunately we will have to get on with what we have.
Many people will throw SC under the bus about this when none of us no the circumstances.

No one needs to throw anyone under any buses. However be good for Stephen Cleeve to open up and let everyone know where the club is.

I sensed this was brewing after one of the interviews a few weeks back. It's a real concern, if things are that tight financially after some good gates. We just have to hope that the situation is clarified asap. Despite a great start, it is just 3 points from the last 4 league games, with 3 of those at home and Lynn are still a good way from safety if things were to implode.......
Anyone know how long Ryan Fryatt and Chris Smith are likely to be out of action ?

With an increase in gate revenue and an amount not to be sniffed at as a result of the Cup run, why should money be tight?

Unless things are really bad (and lets hope they are not) surely there must be a few Bob kicking around for a slight budget increase.

It's all very well going on about budgets and money and gates etc but is the right player available ? IC has said on numerous occasions he would only want a player who would fit into his style of play and as importantly fit into the group of players he has. There's always 2 sides to a disagreement.
There are 3 types of people in this world, those that can count, and those that can't

IC has built up a great rapport with the players and they seem a really tight squad....... it's what has got them where they are. He clearly feels that as a small group with injuries, they are being over burdened at the moment and need reinforcements and feels the need to stand up for them.
This does have echoes of a previous time.........
Let's hope the finances are there to sort it and if not let's hope the team can get to the 35/40point mark sooner than later.

Our defence has been poor all season, 22 goals conceded.That's the most in the top half of the table.

Petulant and disappointingly unprofessional from Culverhouse yesterday. He was clearly extremely disappointed that his side threw away a lead on two separate occasions and he was probably wound up by the shenanigans from the Altrincham bench whose over celebration after their second equaliser, included one of their coaches turning to face the main stand, jumping up and down and giving the home crowd two fingers as he did so but you don't wash your dirty laundry in public Mr Culverhouse.

Little John the central defenders have never had a chance to settle.   Fryatt missed several games now injured.  McAuley missed 3 with suspension.  Smith on his second spell of the season on the injured list.

Can't remember the specific details but I thought that the club made a massive operating loss last year and are probably still making a loss this year but perhaps not quite as big, due to increased revenue through the turnstiles. I thought Stephen Cleeve said he couldn't put his hand in his pocket any more?

Stan, my memory tells me SC said he would only fund it for the last time this season, then it had to stand on its own two feet.

Mark Hearle stated at the start of the season we needed gates of 750/800 ( average) I would assume he was speaking on behalf of the Club and not himself.  I would suspect we are well in excess of 800 per game.  I do wonder if the FA Cup has caused bigger ripples than any of us would have guessed at.
