Daniel Ivery’s report on the transfer embargo was confirmed when the club finally made a statement on the EFL ban yesterday.

The blogger has now called on the chief executive Xuandong Ren to resign due to the poor handling of the club’s affairs during the past couple of months:

Fans on Twitter were mostly behind Ivery in wanting Ren to leave:

Verdict:

It’s hard to know exactly what’s being going on so I will refrain from being as damning as Ivery, but it’s clear that Garry Monk was promised this would be sorted, and it clearly hasn’t been.

From the playing side of things, the manager has been left in a really difficult position. He has transfer listed certain players on the proviso that he could replace them.

With that not looking possible before August 9th, he either has to go back to some of those on the transfer list or persists with the threadbare squad that he has. The club have really not done Monk any favours to say the least.
