    Transparency will always be an issue though no matter who is on the board.

    To some extent always aye. But not to the extent we suffer under this regime..

    Their communication or lack of it is an absolute disgrace too, they show nothing but contempt for us.

    Taking us for granted has to change, which is easier said than done.

    It will always be, unless the law is changed governing boards and PLC's and that isn't happening.

    We will never get to know the truth. We are just plebs who put our hands in our pockets every season to that shower of tory feckers.

    It's got nothing to do with corporate law tbf..

    'Personal Reasons' is an absolute cop out, what is there to hide?

    Hush money/confidentiality agreements will no doubt be in play but to protect who?

    And what about communication? There's no reason for this to be so poor..

    There needs to be a total restructue, but easier said than done.

    By no means am I the guy to say if he was truly out his depth or not, but it would surely seem off if he was?
    It would indicate a lack of background checks, due diligence on our part. Questions would be asked about what went on during the shadowing perioud, if that out of his depth, surely you'd spot it then?


    The clubs ran very poorl, being kind to them.

    The fact McKay has went and found himself another high profile job, while we still haven't hired even s director of football, is very telling about how slow we are to do things...if we ever are doing anything.



    The time for change was years ago, I really wish the fans would mobilise better.

    Considering he took over a complete and utter mess, he done reasonably well in terms of the team he left us with. It was always going to take longer than the two and a bit months he was here to sort us out. The fact the club stated it was “personal reasons” and then he takes a new job shortly after just adds to the circus.

    I reckon he didn't like the banner, coupled with the arsen attack on Peter, thought he'd get out whilst he could.

    It does, whoever is in the boardroom will need to follow/abide by the same rules as those currently in the boardroom of a PLC.
    For whatever reason he left the fact is he will have become aware of sensitive information during his time in the job, so I'd expect an NDA to have been a requirement, as its sensible as well as protecting the Club first and foremost.
    As for communication, if its linked to anything of a sensitive nature that isn't going to change, as said, no matter who is on the board.

    We have a right to know what's happened as supporters, shareholders and customers..

    Not every detail but a more valid reason than what's been offered.

    'Personal reasons' leaves more questions than answers..

    The fact they think this is a valid explanation is just another example of the contempt they hold for us and the audacity in their minimal communication...

    Its got nothing to do with NDA or corporare law, both parties could have given a better explanation without disclosing any sensitive information..

    It's not good enough and if you think it is you'd be in the minority ?

    Unfortunately JC, we are still waiting to hear the truth on Resolution 12and the 5 way agreement so I wouldn't hold my breath re the real reasons McKay left

    If that rumour is true that he wanted to sign jota but board said no get him on loan. He might have had enough and didn't like the vibe. Knowing that down the line it would get worse he said * this I'm away.

    Personal reasons is a standard term used, has been for years and years and I dare say it will continue to be for years and years to come. One thing I will say is DM obviously agreed to the use of that term though so..
    We are just going to have to disagree on what rules a PLC board have to follow as going round in circles wont change what the rules are as they currently exist for a PLC.
    Whether I think its good enough is neither here nor there. I long ago stopped worrying about my opinion being in a minority or a majority instead I concern myself with being factually accurate/correct just JC.

    Aye mate it would, which is likely why he’s no longer with us.

    Shareholders may have some rights.

    Customers, fans, supporters have none.

    Only way to change this is having clauses in the company AoA.

    Shareholders can propose it but it will be resisted by those with seats on the board holding shares.

    They have zero interest in explaining themselves, their actions or their reasoning to anyone.. not even other Shareholders.


    I think the expression is *Suck It Up*

    Well we've 'sucked it up' for far too long and we need to try and force change..

    So, you don't have an opinion?

    Apathy amongst us will only allow the shambles to roll on..

    McKay is just part of a catalogue of failure and incompetence denonstrated by the board..

    But, you know me I've always looked for change and more fan representation even through the successes we have had and will always concern myself with that.

    This whole fiasco adds to the question marks re how the club is run.

    Wasn´t he the yes man that the board assumed / hoped he would be? Did he actually want to put his own stamp on operations, seeing the need for modernization in a number of fields? My take is yes.
    The board realizes this, and are not willing to change it´s modus operandi one bit. Hence quickly ends his employment.
    This begs the question why the club didn´t go for Lawwell mk II in the first place, if the intention all along was to go on as before?

    I don´t see anything in the short- to medium term that indicates any major changes as to the infrastructure within the club.

    As said above, the truth will most likely never be told.
