Did Doig really say "there's no one to clarify the situation at the club " ?  - Where was he all afternoon then ?   Unfortunately that interview was a loyal guy covering for his mate ..... but mugging off the fans at the same time . I think any money that wasn't available for a fitness coach sure needs to be made available for a top PR firm / individual to move us forward in the future and avoid anymore train wrecks  . Fox

I have no problem with Hurst leaving. I'll cup my ear on the way out. I do have a problem with the way this is being handled, the time it's taking and the shabby performance and result witnessed today.


That makes at least one other cupping their ear.

He never had me but he lost me when I saw that from the other side of Wembley

Quoted from Rodley Mariner
I think he's probably tried to manage it in a way that meant that if he couldn't do a deal with Shrewsbury that he could just continue with Town. Don't blame him for trying but don't think he's achieved it and it might be best now if he just moves on quickly and we can do the same. I do think it's a shame as I liked the fact that we were stable and he was just steadily improving us. It might end up being a good thing for the club but that'll depend on the job our non-chairman does in replacing him............As a club we really do manage PR badly don' t we?


If agree with the last half of your post but I think we have to wait to see about the first half.if hurst ends up using the shrews approach as a lever to get the set up as he wants it ( plus presumably a pay rise) then it might be a good result for all concerned. As I said in a previous post I don't ant him to leave but it's a good time to be looking for a new manager if he does depart

Maybe Hurst is in the final 3 for the Shrewsbury job but that's all he does know-so what's he supposed to do-- hand in his resignation. It might not be Town or Fenty who Shrewsbury are referring to when they talk about "crap and awkward negotiations from the other team" Managers apply for loads of jobs but they don't tell the fans everytime--why should they. This is what happens when applications are publicised. Town have done nothing wrong this time- what else could they have done. That's right we can't answer because we don't know the facts. The ones to blame are Shrewsbury. They are under pressure from their own fans and have handled the whole situation badly. Who are the 3 "finalists" have they been named. No. Because shrewsbury maybe haven't come right out and offered the job yet to any of them.Are the other 2 getting stick from their fans?  There are several Fishy members who "have been in the game" who know how the system works-what with agents,and the media interfering before they know the facts. We are too many Sherlock Holmes .We may never know the truth but has too much damage been done for things to be the same. Somebody wants to be held responsible but I don' believe it will be anyone at Blundell Park.[ even with their public relations record]          Here come a load of red X's again

Should I feel bad that I'm not getting worked up about all this 'will he, won't he' stuff like so many on here?

On balance, I'd prefer Hurst to stay as changing managers midway through the season is never ideal (I argued the same last year as well). However, if he decides to go (assuming he has been offered the job), then as forza notes, we're not in too bad a position to get somebody new in.

As to why a move to Shrewsbury might be an attractive one, if they are offering him an 18 month contract on a bit more money and resources for new signings, it might be a decent career move. The reputation of being able to turn around the fortunes of a struggling club looks good on the CV of a manager - providing he is able achieve it, of course!

For what it's worth, I don't think the uncertainty had much of an impact on yesterday's result. The failings of some of the players which were a problem have already been seen this season so nothing new there. Ultimately, it came down to taking chances. They had one great chance and scored, we had two great chances and Bogle hit the keeper with both of them. A weak referee helped their gamesmanship to restrict us to those two good chances.

I'd imagine it will all come out in the wash during the next few days, but I'm not going to worry too much whichever way it goes.

I sort of agree - but the uncertainty has to stop as soon as possible. Let's face it, he was in last chance saloon after the Braintree home play-off game and, in many peoples minds, got lucky when Monkhouse was injured. He's made a decent job of putting a new squad together but, again, failed by failing to keep Amond. There are names in the Shrewsbury next manager betting that I would have ahead of Hurst but let's get it sorted quickly.
