I haven't missed a home game out of choice for my whole life barring being ill or away, and this is the first time where i just don't want to go anymore. A change may bring a spark of life back.

Act now Fenty.

No motivation , that was clear from the first minute .  Enoughs enough . That performance was pathetic , and as manager he's responsible ultimately. Decision time for Mr F and he knows it now .

Quoted from Belfast Town
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.


This is a good post and one that can be answered by Christmas or even probably now.  We have played 14 games, are now 12 points off top spot and 6 points of the play off's.

Personally I would give him until Christmas, if we are not in the play off's and performing as a promotion chasing team then he goes.


Supporting the Mighty Mariners for over 30 years, home town club is were the heart and soul is and it's great to be a part of it.

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?).


Oh for fvck sake !

Were you at the game? Or is this just your view based on the commentary?

95% of the problem is up top
Would any of our strikers get in the teams above us? No they wouldn't

Quick check of match stats from other matches today shows a number of teams above us had same shots on target... but they won cos they are ruthless, lethal and consistent in front of goal

Defensively we are one of best in league but we have to have the capability of winning games 2-1, 3-2, 4-2 etc... and we are miles away

We are treading water and despite being pretty patient, pretty supportive of the manager I feel it's time for a change

We are not progressing (injuries to key players has not helped) and the failure to entice a goalscorer to BP is becoming increasingly hard to fathom

Lose or draw Tuesday and he'll be gone - 2700/2800 crowd I would think and that could be the deciding factor whatever happens... even a 1-0 win and bore fest

We need a man manager, a motivator to spark a very good squad at this level; you can have all the coaching badges in the world but if you can't inspire then it's pointless

Hurst has done a decent job but it's time to be bold and say enough is enough; if he goes I hope he gets a job in football cos he's a decent, honest man.

I would like to see a young manager, possibly his first job, ex-Prem Lge or Championship player looking for a step up on managerial ladder; if they are keen enough they'll come here...Martin O'Neill started at Grantham

Why not gamble? I'd hate a journeyman, been around the block type...the club and fans need a huge lift and a feeling of optimism
