BSA Join the Sqwakers
One of the Chairman's deflection mechanisms for non communication is that he does not have to communicate with all and sundry; that forums are riddled with agenda driven keyboard warriors, people who join in the Radio Lncashire phone ins are 'peculiar people' and that any communication with the fans is via BSA and BSA alone.
A curious tactic in a modern World, but there you have it. More often than not this has sort of worked in that BSA are not particularly confrontational. The have done some sterling work with the likes of the Jimmy Armfield Statue and the like, but even on their own admission, they have not been openly critical of the club.
Today however, BSA Chairman Glenn Bowley has been very forthright in the Gazette. Bowley said to Will Watt Bowley said: "The concern is that the transfer window closes next week. With no disrespect to our current squad, we desperately need some players if we are to stay in the Championship.
"I don`t want to be negative but we are in a relegation battle at the moment.
"The lack of confidence is running through the supporters and morale is low among the players."
So, someone who has come under some pretty harsh (and often unwarranted) criticism for not being vocal enough, is now clearly as annoyed and frustrated as everybody else.
Meanwhile the clubs official communication channels have today confirmed the ref for Saturday's match. At least that's sorted then!
