But how on earth do you justify the decision to announce the parting of the ways just as the club entered the most vital phase of the season? What effect has that had on the field?
I was also taken aback by an earlier announcement by Steve Chettle that his ambition for the club was to become a production line for young talent - presumably then to be sold off.
Not a word about winning championships/cups and getting promotion.
We have to live in the real world and I accept that fans would rather have a club operating at a lowish level than seeing a second bankruptcy.
But you do wonder whether all fans have to look forward to in the future is a low-level nursery club for young players.
Neither the decision on the timing of the announcement of the departure of the management team or the apparent acceptance that the club can no longer afford to compete in the higher levels of the pyramid can be good for the morale of the fans.
Hopefully a play-off place can still be achieved despite the recent setbacks.
