Another added: "Disgusting statement. Completely Unacceptable. Keep burying your heads in the sand . We are winning nothing this season. This is not going to get any better till there’s serious change at every level."

Another fan added: "This isn't the statement we wanted or needed. His recent record is now comparable to Barnes and Mowbray with the difference being he's working with the second most successful squad in our history. It's not f*****g good enough, how much worse does this need to get??"

Many supporters shared the sentiment that the decision outlines the why the board have received criticism of late, with one fan writing: "Plainly put, this is gross negligence. You are failing every single supporter of our club. It's astounding how you have managed to drive a huge wedge between yourselves and our supporters. Hell mend you all."
