The Final Straw

So at least 8 of the "unpaid 15" are not in the frame of mind to play at Hull tomorrow, and as a result the rest are refusing to do so. What kind of a kop out is that.

More to the point what kind of professionalism is that. The season is 12 days away, if they are not with City then, this shower of shit will hope to be at other clubs. Are clubs going to want to pick them up if they have no pre season behind them.

What kind of frame of mind do these tossers think that the supporters of City are in. So what if they might be about to lose their highly paid, easy money jobs. We could be about to lose a way of life, a religion. How do they think the Pope would react if the Catholic Church went bankrupt, because that is what no BCFC will mean to a lot of us.

I don't think it would take a genius to work out which players make up the majority who aren't in the right frame of mind. The wasters, the trouble causers, the money grabbing journeymen. The players who have spent most of their career at the foot of the highest levels but never actually won anything other than a big payday by a gullible Premiership wannabe.

I would put money on the likes of Wayne Jacobs, David Wetherall, Gary Walsh & Claus Jorgenson NOT having voted to strike.

The ones that have voted for it are beneath contempt. Talk about kicking a man when he is down (or should that be 12,000 men, women and children). I hope the T&A suddenly develop the balls to name the ones who are behind this. But I seriously doubt it.

I like to think I am a "half full" glass sort of person, but I have a really nasty feeling in my gut about the Creditors meetings on Thursday. Something tells me that the CVA is going to fail and we are going to go the way of BPA. I pray that I am wrong.

Should it go through I hope that Nicky Law moves these wasters on as fast as possible, with no compensation for reduced wages.

If it doesn't get ready for a backlash.
