Communication Breakdown


Guess the B side?

By Almo
September 1 2019

In 1969 the debut album for new super-group Led Zeppelin, cunningly entitled "Led Zeppelin" but known as Led Zep 1, featured a song called Communication Breakdown.

50 years later that title aptly describes the situation at our club.

The club are in a precarious position and a weekly update of news, if only to say we are still breathing, is an obvious requirement.

Five or six players 19 days before the first scheduled fixture is not good, and in the Radio Silence, many assume the worst. Other former fans, I am sure, have lost patience and plan on doing other things during their winter Sundays.

The aforementioned song was also part of a promotional single (pictured above). The B side was called "Good Times, Bad Times".

The Sound of Silence by Simon & Garfunkle comes to mind.

And when it comes to the supporters, could it be our "19th nervous breakdown"?

Oh Dear! What have I set off? I was only keeping the board alive with a published article as it was 16 days since our last one, and obviously nothing worth writing about has happened (that we know of, anyway).

If the club does die, then I don't think it will be on a "Stairway to Heaven" LOL.

The lack of communication, even by this clubs standards, is appalling and totally unacceptable for those of us still willing to give the new season a shot, however it all happens. But my patience has virtually evaporated.

May have been written especially for us!

"I've told myself so many times before
But this time I think I mean it for sure
We have reached a full stop
Nothing's gonna save us from the big drop
Reached our natural conclusion
Outlived the illusion
I hate being in these situations
That call for diplomatic relations
If I only knew the answer
Or I thought we had a chance
Or I could stop this
I would stop this thing spreading like a cancer
What can I say? (I don't want to play) anymore
What can I say? I'm heading for the door
I can't stand this emotional violence
Leave in silence
We've been running round in circles all year
Doing this and that and getting nowhere
This'll be the last time
(I think I said it last time)
If only I had a potion
Some magical lotion
That could stop this. I would stop this
I would set the wheels in motion
What can I say? (I don't wanna Play) anymore
What can I say? I'm heading for the door
I can't stand this emotional violence
Leave in silence"

Upon news of points deduction not being applied after successful completion of CVA requirement Managing Director Chris Gibson said " Our focus now is on building a side to compete in the Greene King IPA Championship and support the vision of our DOR Martyn Wood and Head Coach Joe Ford."

Given this statement, albeit several weeks ago, I would hope that full energies are being directed at meeting this ambition and that additional activity is potentially a distraction until plans are definitely confirmed. Having said this I believe any news about inability to proceed etc. would have been communicated if applicable.

I think there's now a very real possibility that we haven't managed to recruit enough players and therefore won't be taking our place in the Championship this season.

I don't know,

I think this continued lack of information from the club shows they've learned nothing.

By the time they can be bothered to say something there'll be no-one left listening.

I visit most days to find out what is going with Leeds - and don't find anything - my thoughts with you guys who must be absolutely devastated seeing your passions & friendships on the line (Sm103)
