Hands up I thought King taking over the club would improve the squad, the way the club is run and transparency from the boardroom.
I now doubt that he's the man. OK financially we seem better off and he's went some way to stabilising us in this department. However the product on the park hasn't improved significantly and honesty and transparency seem to be non existent.
Unless I've missed it there has been next to nothing from the board in our search for a new manager.
I'm aware that things can't be rushed and if your in negotiation it has to be done in a confidential manner. But there has been no announcements about our future direction or time frame for appointing a new man.
In short I think the board are taking the supporters for granted again. The same supporters that stood by the club through the turmoil of the last few years. I really think if they don't get their fingers out there is going to be a fan backlash.
To cap it all two articles in the Sun, one from the caretaker saying the players are unsettled etc
Another from Matt Gilks saying when I was with Blackpool we had a dressing room of fighters and honest people. Inferring that wasn't the case at Ibrox.
The place is an absolute shambles and we've got a managing director and owner who say nothing.
Any thoughts fellow bears?

Sorry I meant King but my general point is in my opinion the most loyal fans in UK are being kept in the dark as per usual.

Deluded post! How much info do you need. cornflakes for breakfast, 2 sugars in his tea?

The statement he released said what their intentions were. not sure you can order a top manager from argos or get him delivered by amazon so you have to expect that some investigative work and negotiations will be done in private!

Ross mate I think until we get rid of Ashley and all these court cases that come with it, there won't be anyone in there right mind will invest some money into us, as for the board just now they are probably doing about as best they can with loans and stuff and as for the team I agree we are a complete shambles all over the field and something needs to be done asap in that area, but until we are able to stop getting by on soft loans it does look like we could be like this for a few years yet unless we do get a sugar daddy which I just can't see happening

Must disagree with you first of all regarding the team the manager is given a budget which was twice even three times the level of Aberdeen or Hearts but the manager squandered it on players who aren't up to it it's not the chairmans job to put a team on the park as for the DOF and managers job the board can't say anything till they have something concrete to say they are in negotiations with people for both jobs what do you want them to say be patent then judge.

I'm not happy with where we are but it's going to take time to fix the mess left by those crooks who were in charge also until we get rid of Ashley we will struggle so be patient let's see what happens.

How can negotiations be both confidential and transparent? Tell me just one other business where the board would be expected to make all their dealings public, especially with various legal actions pending? What do people on here understand by 'transparent'? I'm no lover of King's methods but the board has to keep certain areas of business completely private, just like any other organisation. And as for quoting the Sun. just ruined your whole credibility.

My post stated I understand the negotiations are confidential however I think the fans deserve an idea of the direction we're going in and the time frame involved. Some how this makes me deluded?
No wonder the board don't give us updates if u lot are a sample of our fans and misquote what's said.
