Suspicious Minds


The message boards and social media are full of rumour and counter rumour on press speculation about takeovers, lack of transparency, we are skint, players been sold, etc and I’m sure I heard Frazer from Dads Army shouting “we’re doomed.”

Trying to unpick all of this, it appears from my vantage point that we are pulling apart instead of pulling together. We are creating divisions when we do not need to. Communication is crucial, clear communication is even more crucial.

We need good people to run this club and we need good people to support it, and I believe we have both (time will tell if this remains true) but we need to get back to the togetherness we created last season. We need to trust in each other.

You know the lyric “we caught in a trap, I can’t walk out because I love you too much baby, why can’t you see what you doing to me when you don’t believe a word I say “

When I read and hear what has been said, supposedly said or someone’s interpretation of what’s been said, it just makes me so doubtful and reminds me so much of the current political climate.

Culturally we have become a society whose daily diet consists of gorging on tittle tattle via whatever medium of your choice and as such the Chinese whispers abound

The famous quote attributed to war times

“Send reinforcements. We are going to advance. Send three and fourpence. We are going to a dance.”

Can someone just set the record straight or move the stylus of the groove and let the facts be known, no sound bites or verbal posturing, just the facts and if you don’t have all the facts to hand either say nothing or say you don’t have all the details.

As the remaining lyrics go

“We can’t go on together with suspicious minds, and we can’t build our dreams on suspicious minds.”
