Operational Director, Brendan Flood speaking to the local media has confirmed the club have concerns about the team's current position in the Championship league table saying they will debate the managerial situation over the next few days before deciding whether to back Brian Laws or let him go.
Clarets fans have increasingly made their views known venting their anger and calling for Laws to go. 'Laws Out' banners are becoming more prominent at matches. There was also chanting of 'Laws Out' by a large number of fans during half-time and at full-time following the debacle of a home defeat against second from bottom,Scunthorpe on Christmas Bank Holiday Tuesday something the Board couldn't have failed to notice.
Flood told the Lancashire Telegraph that he was 'concerned` that the club are currently behind schedule in their bid to return to the Premier League at the first attempt.
'We do want to communicate to the fans that we are concerned,' Flood said following the Scunthorpe defeat
'We have aims for where we want to be and we're not there. We want the club to succeed.
'We need to make a decision. We either need to back Brian or we need to make a change.
'There was no meeting after the game but there will be discussions in the next few days with the rest of the board about the situation. We want any decision to be unanimous.
'The discussions will be in the next few days. I can't really say any more than that.'
The timing of this meeting is not known and at the moment Chairman, Barry Kilby is out of the country. The Board have been split over the Laws issue according to media reports with reportedly two of the current five directors still supporting the under-pressure manager.
It will be interesting to see whether an announcement will be made before our next match which will be played on New Year's Day against Sheffield United at Turf Moor this Saturday.
A lot of Clarets fans though will be content that at long last the club seem to be sharing the general concerns of fans over the managerial situation. The very fact Brian Laws future will now be debated will come as some comfort to a number of Clarets fans desperate for a change to be made.
