He claims to be a fan.

Why should he be urging fans to pledge to MCT if he isn't prepared to do so himself? In fact, all club employees should be publicly pledging to MCT.

 

Why?

How do you know he isn't putting any of his own money in? Anyway, it's not necessarily up to owners to finance clubs from whatever personal wealth they have.

He's not the owner.


Well chairman then. Did you ever pay for colleagues wages when you were stacking shelves?

The suggestion of staff and players pledging is not a crazy one as a show of unity. #Together.

The way it was delivered as a Crawford dig was abysmal at best.

I've never stacked shelves for a living, but what would that have to do with it anyway?

Don't you think, as a fan himself, he should lead by example?


I don't know what his financial situation is. He's already said several time he's behind the scheme and is giving it his support so I really don't see what your point is apart from having another moan about a non-issue.

I'm not suggesting he pumps thousands of his own money into the club but he's asking fans to pledge to MCT. If he practises what he preaches and publicly announces that he's pledged too, then I'm sure more fans would follow. Nobody needs to know what he's pledged, that's his business, it's the gesture of doing what he's asking the fans to do that counts.


You're using it to criticise him when there's nothing there to criticise.

No need to try and be a clever d#ck m8 I'm just having an opinion. Would be a bit daft if we have a great manager and shit team wouldn't it? If things went wrong you'll probs be the 1st shouting for the managers head.

There's no way he took the job without knowing the budget. And there's no way he'd take a job where he doesn't think he would be a success.

As it stands, my guess is that Hopkin has offered players who he thinks could be alright squad options a wage that reflects that and they've left. It could turn out otherwise, but none of them particularly deserved to be offered equal terms anyway.
