GLOVERS PROBLEM LIES AT THE TOP
YEOVIL chairman John Fry has warned supporters of the League Two strugglers that the budget will be slashed unless more of them come through the gates.
Last Saturday’s defeat by Hartlepool was watched by just 2,749 fans at Huish Park – the lowest attendance since promotion from the National League in 2003.
Fry says that, unless the Glovers are in the top half by Christmas, he’ll cut costs. To me, that’s just breathtaking.
The reason Yeovil are second bottom isn’t the fans or the manager. It’s a chairman who has consistently failed to invest, doesn’t hand out longterm contracts and lurches from season to season with no coherent plan.
Fry had a chance to build from a position of strength when Yeovil were in the Championship. He blew it. Before he blames others, Fry should take a long, hard look at himself.
