Mitchell Bray says:
Whichever way it is deciphered or considered, the plain facts are that the EFL are certainly making life difficult for Garry Monk.
It was widely reported yesterday that the club’s FFP hearing will take place in February 2019.
This means, of course, that the manager’s hands will be tied in yet another transfer window.
He will not be allowed to do his job. This is the worry for all supporters of the club. Monk is a good manager that needs to manage, it is his career and it is his aim to be a success.
Nobody would blame this likeable and talented man if he were tempted away by a more stable environment. Can anyone really see him standing still through another barren window? I certainly cannot.
What of course has not helped is the hierarchy of our club, who continue to exercise their right ‘to remain silent’. We hear nothing and know nothing. No club I would imagine would receive this type of treatment.
Therefore my thoughts turn to our manager who although very dignified and respectful will, in my opinion, entertain a change of employment unless he considers our owners to be decent and the long-term future rosy.
Somehow it doesn’t ring true.
