Certainly the last bit is very true. I for one was quite keen on the dynamic duo.

McMenemy got off to a flier though really and very quickly endeared himself to the supporters by taking the players down dock to show them real workers. His all action effort style was evident from day one. I don't know about Buckley Mk1. My impression from memory is that fans wanted a new start. The age old clamour for a player manager had fallen flat. We had a squad in single figures when Buckley and Arthur Mann arrived and I think that people were more of the opinion that he would get successful non-league players and turn them into league players. Tillson and Alexander were good examples. You are definitely right though, success or failure in one club is not always a guarantee for the next job.




The general consensus seemed to be the opposite! Most of the fans I knew at the time were dismayed at the number of non-league players that were signed with the exception of John Cockerill , probably because who is father was. Admittedly Lawrie Mac got off to a good start but his original appointment wasn't viewed with any enthusiasm especially as he had been sacked by Doncaster after getting them relegated. Most of the fans I knew at the time viewed it as a backward step.

Then again, we could just have an approach where we throw money at stuff hoping it works ala lennie lawrence


In a neat little town they all call Grimsby
Apprentice to a tradeI was bound
And many's an hour's sweet happiness
Have I spent in this neat little town.

A sad misfortune came over me
Which caused me to stray from the land
Far away from my friends and relations
Never Betrayed by the black and white band.

Her eyes they shone like diamonds
I thought her the queen of the land
And her hair hung over her shoulders
Tied up with a black and white band.

I've been sat here on the Fishy looking at loads of names that members have been putting forward as their choice to be Town Manager. No two persons can agree on the same name forwarded,some want a young up and coming manager from lower divisions,others want out of work journey men and others want a manager that has been around and been sucessful at this level. The difficulty being that some won't want to come here. others wouldn't be wanted here for various reasons and others have a safe position with the clubs they now manage.All I can say is that it must be a hell of a job for a board of directors to get the right man.There's no guarantee a manager that's done well at a certain club would do as well at another.
I personally would like to see a proven attack minded coach (anyone got suggestions on who would fit the bill ?) on the staff at Town and it made very clear to a stubborn PH that this is the way forward. We can all see that any coaching at the moment is purely defence minded. UTM.

Opinions were obviously as divided then as they are now.
