Or in fact anyone can apply who can help our Co Owner not shoot himself in the foot when speaking to the press.
A few days ago Sullivan spoke to the nationals (the Sun) criticising the home support for not turning up enough and for being too quiet.
I ignored it at the point, but the stories are back with a vengence today and have been covered by other outlets.
Sullivan said amongst other things:
'We have to ask ourselves, are we really a big club?
'Our tickets were cheaper than any in the division but there were still empty seats.
'And the fans who do come must be the quietest in the country.'
He also had a few words along similar lines in last matches program, criticising those who didn't turn up and having a go at those that did for not shouting enough.
Is Sullivan taking the mantle of Doug Ellis for being a fans embarrassment everytime he speaks?
Tickets may have been cheaper, but over the previous months how many fans have been priced out of attending? How many of those 'floating' fans have now got other commitments or found other things to do? Maybe working overtime, out Xmas shopping or doing one of the many other necessary things as we enter the month of December?
Yes it's good the club have reduced tickets lately, and the family ticket (2 adults, 2 kids) for £30 is a grand idea.
But to pack out St Andrews against teams like Plymouth, you have to say the boards former decisions when it comes to pricing are the reasons even ticket reductions don't add that many numbers to the attendance.
You can't piss on the fans and constantly ask for more whilst giving them back relegation and keep expecting them to keep shelling out.
Should we win promotion and should prices not drastically change like they did before then I'm sure we'll hit attendances closer to capacity again.
Until then don't whinge.
