DRFC Ryan answers critics

DRFC Ryan answers critics

Doncaster Rovers chairman John Ryan has been quick to answer fans who are suggested there is no investment from the directors at the club.

Ryan who is a lifelong fan of the Rovers has dragged the club back from the brink of extinction in 1998 into a club that are basking in Championship football, a training ground many clubs are envious of and playing at a purpose built stadium, replacing the old run down Belle Vue.

Speaking on the official website, Ryan said "We do invest a lot in the team but I sometimes think fans look at transfer fees".

He also explained that the clubs wage budget now tops £6 million a year, which when compared to other clubs in the Championship may not come close to comparison.

What fans have to remember is that the club are only playing in front of an average of around 10,000 fans each week, so the club can`t break the bank and risk the financial future of the club like some clubs have in the past.

Some fans are quick to forget the progress the club have made since John Ryan`s arrival and should be getting behind him and his fellow directors.

The club have made another steady start to the Championship and a few wins instead of draws could see them quickly see them catapult up the table with a squad that is more than capable than matching the best in this division on their day.

I can never understand how any fans can criticise Ryan after all he's done for the club. I would sooner see the club have financial security and still in business than risk it all and end up like some clubs have. Conference to the Championship in 5 years and some people still aren't happy!!!

I think they would prefer to see the club go into massive debt to buy some big name players. That way, when the club goes bankrupt, they can stand in the pub saying "I told you so". With the achievements they have made, I would be happy to see them still in the Championship in 5 years time.
