If what we were told on here is right, that some board members wanted PH gone at the end of last season, then now is the last opportunity to save this season. Fenty talks about not propping up BP forever, how about not propping up this manager forever? Where we are at present after 3 winnable games 4 points out of 9, is not acceptable and this season has just about gone already.

Nothing against the man personally, but he will not get us promotion as long as he's got a hole in his bottom. Not that he's the only problem.

The decision surely rests on whether promotion is now a lost cause this season. A new manager will need time to bed-in and will not achieve promotion, so the season has to be written off before we find a new manager. I don't think we're in this postion.......yet.

Defeat today and he may have gone, but nicking a point may save him for now.

It's his old pal John-Lewis who's saved him for now, but ironically it's playing him constantly and tinkering with everything else in the team that's ultimately going to cost him his job.

He's had time and doesn't look capable of getting the players motivated. Real downfall was not signing another experienced goal-scoring striker (and so relying on LJL). It's a shame but as a season ticket holder I'm not going on Tuesday night if he's in charge. Last Tuesday's performance was an absolute disgrace - and I've seen a few over 40 odd years.

6 points from the play-offs, two-thirds of the season left, at least 2 key players to come back from injury - an away draw, and moving up a couple of places - yet it seems some people can't wait to get back on the 'sack the manager' bandwagon (I wonder how many actually saw the performance first hand today, rather than listening to the radio commentary?).

PH should have gone end of last season, no need to wait any longer - they'll soon be concentrating on the worthless FA Trophy
