To All Sydney FC Fans:
By now everyone who is interested has had a chance to read and digest then club’s statement regarding our meeting with them where we raised a number of issues with them.
We want a club that is fully capable of making the next cycle of decisions about Sydney FC's future, whenever those decisions happen, we believe that those decisions are critical to the club's future and will determine the fate of the organisation for the foreseeable future We believe that if the wrong choices are made and the wrong plans put in place, the opportunity to achieve the potential that this club so clearly has, will be lost for a very long time.
We strongly urge Mr Traktoventko, majority shareholder, someone whose commitment to our club and whose integrity we deeply respect, to use his expertise and extensive contacts in the football world to appoint an appropriate independent expert to lead a full review of all aspects of Sydney FC, to develop a skills and capabilities improvement plan for the club and to execute that plan.
We believe that this is the best way to ensure that the club will be able to get the next cycle of decision making and development absolutely right, whenever that may happen and to ensure that the club has the greatest possible opportunity to achieve the massive potential that our beloved Sydney FC so clearly has.
We have no desire to discard the positive developments that have been achieved in the past 2 years, we want to see them built upon.
It is common practice in the business world to bring in external expertise during periods of significant change, to provide a pragmatic and objective perspective. A practice we urge Sydney FC’s owners to undertake.
Once again we’d like to thank the Club’s Senior Management for the seriousness with which they took our issues, their honesty with us and their extensive efforts to address our concerns under difficult circumstances.
