Lonely ! So Lonely !
There you have it ! Mel Baroni is now gone following hot on the heels of John Little.
Staff form all areas of the club are leaving the sinking ship but one rat is staying ! Only Roly and Katrien will be left soon even then it'll probably only be Katrien because as we know Roly doesn't do S.E.7 more than once a year on a cold Tuesday in February.
There can't be much doubt that Mel's departure is as a result of the ridiculous statement that appeared on Tuesday. You can't blame her for resigning as any credible person wouldn't want to be associated with that.
Remember though Roly does things his way and he doesn't do failure. Hmmm....may have to have a rethink on that. The man is increasingly becoming exposed for what he is in his desperation to defend and retain Katrien.
Her appointment and subsequent ongoing employment at CAFC is probably his biggest single mistake aside from purchasing the club in the first place.
Roly is a man who prefers to appoint people he has a relationship with and knows personally......sadly all the people he knows are s***e !
Not been a good week for him has it ? All the bad press from Sunday and now he has lost two experienced and professional people. Clearly he is listening to no one, no matter how wise their advice or great their experience.
My Oscar Wilde quote of a few weeks ago seems ever more appropriate...." with age comes wisdom but sometimes age comes alone " !
The team travel to Sheffield against this background but at least on the pitch they may have gained some momentum. I'd be surprised if they win given our dearth of forwards at least. Whilst Lookman and Harriott did well on Sunday I can't see that working too often given their lack of height and real physical presence. Sadly an out of form and confidence Big Mak is the only real alternative at the moment.
Let's hope they can get some sort of a result.
Come On You Reds !
