How do you think you’ll do against us next season?

Hi Daniel, got a similar request from a Tranmere fan a week or so ago so I'll give you the same reply if you don't mind -

Hi and welcome.

You've obviously not been following us closely last season because it was probably the worst in our 150 year history, lurching from financial winding up petitions on a seemingly daily basis, and a player strike in pre-season and another at the end of the season - the first game not to start in the history of English league football because of a strike!

If that's not enough we've had an owner who had previously been banned from being a director for 8 years previously, our patron and the man who put over £200m of his personal wealth in the club died suddenly, and the local newspaper reporter seemingly lead a personal crusade against the club owner on twitter and stirring up lynch mob hatred amongst the supporters - which ultimately and quite rightly getting him banned from the club press box (as a professional journalist no matter what he thinks or knows he should be reporting and behaving in a proper manner and not with a clear personal agenda).

His banning was probably the point at which everything turned toxic, with club legend John McGinlay speaking out and getting banned, a well supported public protest outside the club deliberately coinciding with the cameras there to show a life game, and apparent threats of violence now being made to the owner and his family causing the police to advise he no longer attended the ground and turning him into an absent owner.

Things on the pitch were grim with a manager who would have been potted under any other circumstances for his turgid and life sapping defensive set ups and negative football - leading to a season record of 30 defeats. It's fair to say that many of the fans now hated the manager as much as the owner - but no one seemed to have any money to terminate his contract, resulting in him still being here.

If that isn't enough we eventually fell into the inevitable Administration following a bizarre attempt from a former 'dodgy' owner of Watford trying to buy the club without knowing what the debts were or have any proof of money of his own???

As it stands at the moment we only have six first team players under contract BUT they still aren't being paid and could give notice and quit at anytime.

The hated manager is still here (I must point out though that he is well liked and respected as a person who has handled himself well and with dignity the whole time - even though he and his staff haven't been paid for months either!), and many fans are refusing to renew their season tickets whilst he is still at the helm.

Chuck into the pot that we already have a 12 point penalty for going into Administration, are in theory at least under a two year transfer embargo, and the Administrator is seeking proof of funds from those wanting to buy this car crash of our club £25m, just to be able to move out of Administration - the season kicking off in just 42 days or something and nothing and no one knowing who will own us, who will manage us, what players we have, how many bodies we need to sign, nor even who will provide the team shirts?

Oh nearly forgot - and thanks to our gutless players who refused to stand on a pitch for 90 minutes we also have an unspecified penalty from the EFL to come for not playing a game - so we will suffer a further points deduction and/or cash fine - both of which will fall on players and owner in no way associated with those who struck, who they themselves will gaily be kicking a ball about at some other club (fully paid up by the way) whilst the club and its fans suffer because of their self-centredness.

It's just a joke really but unfortunately it has manifested itself in staff at the club having to attend foodbanks to feed their family's.

That can't be right can it?

Sorry I don't think people don't wish to fill in your questionnaire, its just that we simply don't know the answers to much of what you are asking us!

No problem.

Feel free to link us thanks - also don't be shy about putting up your links on here, maybe we can get a bit of banter going around match time perhaps?

Oh and just in case you might not have known Charlie Wyke was our number one transfer target last season - thought that might give you a few laughs!

All the best for your season.

haha fair enough. Just fully read your thoughts that you sent me, it truly is harrowing. I thought our club was in a state a few years ago!
Good luck trying to get your club back on track mate.
