However, let's journey back to what people would probably refer to as the saving grace of this time - the appointment and integration of the new Chief Executive, Graham Wallace. The man entered with a certain dignity that his predecessors in the role were bereft of. He spoke well, appeared to dodge few issues and there was an air of honesty that precious incumbents also sorely lacked.
However, rhetoric is as cheap as the paper it's written on, and the best part of a year later, fans are most certainly seeing that. If I was to offer my opinion, I believed - and still do to an extent - that Wallace came in to this job with good intentions. His talk of ending the "bonus culture", however, now looks as empty as anything else that has been said in this whole affair. The club currently sits on the brink of another financial meltdown, yet there is time for another expensive PR man to refuse to comment on whether he'll be taking a performance-related bonus or not.
Remind you of anyone?
