AVFC - Politics & No Comment?
The past 72 hours have been eventful to say the least. There has been outcry, emotion, frustrations, concerns, optimism, speculation - I mean what hasn't there been??! But why have the football club made NO official comment since Barry's sale? I must admit I haven't browsed the General thread, but at a time when there needs to be a bit of unity and renewed optimism, why are we getting the silent treatment from the club?
We are lead to believe MON is on holiday? The club knows that there are questions to be we want answered - Mr Barry himself knew that there would be impending questions from fans regarding his transfer and at least we did get a response from him (although it being a shoddy one) in the from of a letter (although this wasn't through official channels). Why did Gareth choose to write to the Mail to broadcast his reasons. Would the club have published Gareth's comments if asked to by him?
You may think that I'm reading between the lines a bit too much but you must admit there are some strange goings on. I feel the club need to communicate something soon, or questions will start about ambition and the rags may even start reporting 'crisis at villa' articles. What we do know is that the club did everything in its power to hold onto Barry, but with more of our lot being link with the richer lot, we don't seem to be wanting to dismiss this damning speculation. Either way, good or bad news, I'd rather hear it from the club 1st, and not tomorrows loo roll. No spin, no bullshit (like that daft transfer speculation the OS normally runs around this time of year) just pure factual information....
.... I don't know what's easier to understand nowadays - our football club or politics....?? One thing is certain though - we need a lift in both these aspects of our lives - and it's up to the club to somehow provide this.....
