Solly being forced out
News breaking this morning by someone close to the situation that yesterday before kick off Chris Solly was dropped from the squad and Johnnie Jackson from the starting XI. This at the insistence of Ms Meire. The reason? Both Solly and Jacko were a little bit too honest at Thursday night’s sponsors’ dinner.
A lot of stuff came out of that evening with almost every player that was willing to talk about off the field activities damning in their comments of the leadership and direction of the club. Almost to a man they agreed that this is the most unnecessary of relegations.
Some players comments were unattributed, some weren’t. It is believed that Solly told one supporters that Meire attempted to get him loaned to Gillingham following the signing of Marco Motta. Solly told Meire where to go and apparently he is still in a state of disbelief. Solly, who has given everything to the club as a man and boy and has played 200 1st team games not good enough according to Pinocchio. And of course she would know.
Jackson too told supporters on Thursday eloquently as you would expect, a few stories to back up the carnage we already know about. Other players were very critical also, young and old.
Jackson openly saluted the covered end yesterday before the game as Roland Out chants boomed out of it. Jacko, as honest and principled as the day is long doesn’t need to hide anymore. He is worth more than that, he has more integrity in his little toe than Meire has in her whole body.
It is also understood that Stephen Henderson will be the first player out of the door if this ownership is still here in the summer. Henderson has been very vocal in his opinions inside the club, which would explain his banishment and catelogue of fabled injuries.
Henderson, let us not forget, was the man who faced reporters after the Huddersfield debacle when Fraeye and Meire hid, gutless and lily-livered. How can we allow these criminals to carry on? They are stealing our club and everything it stands for. What Solly, Jackson and Henderson stand for.
