What's the gamble? What is Hurst doing this season that he hasn't done the season before  and the season before that? we will scrape into the play-offs and get beaten by much more adventurous, organise team like the season before and the season before that!!!!
we have nothing to lose in sacking Hurst, even if we don't get promoted with a new manager maybe just maybe it might not be so dire to watch


Of course it's a gamble. It would cost the best part of 100 grand to sack Hurst and appoint a succesor. That money, which we would be basically giving away, could be used for players in January who could make the crucial difference in the last half of the season. Also you might think that getting to the play-offs every year is no more than we should expect but before PH came along we never came within a sniff of them. There's no reason to think that a new manager would get to them every season just because PH has done. Whether you twist or stick, and it's not an easy decision in the position we are in.

A year of Hurst's wages, and any signing on fee for a new man. It might be more if the new manager wants to bring other staff here to work with him.

I'd love to but we need to start playing some first.  

You do make some good points Maringer and the anti Hurst thing does tend to migrate to every thread, i agree. But there is an undeniable undercurrent of "us and them" sometimes. The mere mention that there might be something not quite rosy in the camp immediately gets a barrage of red crosses, as though the author is making it up just to cause trouble. I've heard some interesting rumours this week, which i would once have shared but such is the way of it on here lately, i shall save myself the grief. Myself and Grim Reaper have alluded to the Aswad situation for instance and immediately received nothing but red crosses and cries of bullshit, he's the best left back in the league.

Think i'll go back into hibernation for a while.


I cannot believe someone of your calibre can be remotely bothered about ticks and crosses. As I've said numerous times:- I've turned them off-it's liberating


I have an inferiority complex-It's not a very good one though.

Yeah - I know what it's for, just wondered how you'd arrived at £100k?

It would only be 100k to add to the rest of the money wasted paying off the rubbish he's (Fenty) brought into the club.
We don't want to be in the playoffs season after season what I expect is a manager that will deliver the championship. Sick to flipping death of people taking second best as success.


In his three stints as Grimsby Town manager spanning over 10 years the club was never relegated and he also guided them to three promotions.
Only 14 managers have reached 1,000 matches in charge of a Football League team by 1998 and Buckley is one of them.

I said the best part of 100K. Mike Newell was on 1500 a week basic salary I think from his writ so assuming PH is on the similar a few years later in a lower division that would be 80 grand. It might be a bit less, but it's still going to be well over 50 just to pay him off.

Glad you're not Chairman you'd be sacking someone every season.

I posted after last seasons playoffs that it would've cost the club 40k to pay ph off,
The men upstairs weren't happy but didn't come up with 40k to get rid
