It kind of annoys me that I read this.

You CANNOT lay the blame for this season purely at the feet of Darren. He doesn't sign all the players. Yes the recruitment in the summer was poor. But you have to look at Leon for some of that as well as Darren, and ultimately Phil.

Phil gives them a budget and if we can only sign 5 players on a grand a week but player 1 wants £1200 then player 4 or 5 gets £800. It's just how it is. Like we obviously had to wait for Northampton to sign a striker before we could sign Revell. I heard we were signing Revell 10 days ago and boy how good would that have been to have him on Saturday and last night....? But we are bottom of the food chain.

We can only pay people what comes in the club, and if money isn't coming over the turnstiles we have to sell players. We sell players, the team doesn't perform as well, the team doesn't perform, people don't pay at the turnstiles. Et cetera Et cetera.

So I think to point this finger at Darren alone is harsh and he certainly hasn't 'ruined the club this season'
