Vinny Codrington believes Middlesex members who filed a petition of no confidence in the club's cricket committee this week are panicking for no reason.
Around 200 members handed in a signed letter to club chairman Ian Lovatt on Monday, enough in the Middlesex constitution to force chief executive Codrington to organise a extraordinary general meeting.
Ironically, the off-field furore coincided with Middlesex's first win on it, a six-wicket success over Derbyshire, just one reason why Codrington claims the timing of the move is ill-judged.
"From a personal point of view I think it's a shame, because the season is not very old and we have three members' meetings a year anyway.
"These people can ask whatever questions they like at those," said Codrington.
The Seaxes' boss is not entirely clear about the exact beef of the small minority of Middlesex's 8,000 or so members, but it is believed to concern the leadership qualities of skipper Ed Smith.
"The letter states no confidence in the committee, but Ian Lovatt was told they are unhappy with the cricket being played," said Codrington.
"I guess after the Championship loss to Essex and then being 60-5 in the first innings against Derbyshire when the body language wasn't good, someone felt something should be done."
No date for the meeting has yet been set.
Meanwhile, one of the chief architects of Monday's win over Derbyshire admitted he expects to be dropped for tomorrow's visit of Essex.
Shaun Udal rescued Middlesex's first innings with 40 not out, his stand of 90 with Ben Scott (66), breaking a record for the ninth-wicket against Derbyshire stretching back to 1968.
'Shaggy' averages 154 in his last three championship innings, yet the 39-year-old suspects the return of overseas star and fellow slow-bowler Murali Kartik will condemn him to the drinks duties.
He said: "Traditionally, it doesn't turn miles here.
"So if they go with four seamers and one spinner that's going to be Murali, so I'll be the one left out, and I'll just have to take it on the chin and get on with it."
