Quoted from HertsGTFC


Get the bit about step up and full time but this August PH needed to adjust to the Football League he had never managed there before.

Marcus looks like a good recruit and one that will put 110% into GTFC!


Yes fair point Herts. Concerns are more centred around having to adjust to both at the same time. Felt that Scott and Hurst took a bit too long to adjust to full-time given the resources they had. Happy it's not some chancer on the way down though.


Up The Mariners!

If true, the club will announce it the day before the Sheffield cup game in hopes of boosting the gate. Some Hope!!

Success is never guaranteed, but from our own experience surely we've a better chance with someone who has worked his backside off in management, learned the whole thing from the ground up, played over 600 games and with a recent promotion under his belt. And his general attitude to football and life in general will be a breath of fresh air.

Can you imagine waking up the the following tomorrow morning:

"GTFC unveil Russ Wilcox as new manager. Wilcox 'buzzing' to get started"

Happy with this, I think that you are forgetting he has some very good players here who are not suddenly going to go backwards, I hope we see some better attacking options now, sick of this bulling the opposition up every match

Would be happy with this and even happier to realistically think that he could easily bring Omari Sterling James and their striker Akwasi Asante with him. Have seen both a couple of times and they both look like the players that could step up the leagues ala Bogle. Dont know if Omari is related to Raheem but he is his double in both looks and playing style even down to the limp wrist down by the sides when he gets a spurt on and ive seen him at full pelt, very fast indeed!

We're in an ok position in the league and the transfer window opens in two months. We have to look long term and give the guy a chance.
Hurst neither believed or expected to challenge for promotion.....at least in his public utterances. First and foremost we need someone who can coach and man manage. I'm open minded about him and hope we supporters give the guy time. Let's reassess at the end of january eh?

Quoted from geir
I think I will be positive to this appointment if it is true. As many here have said - every appointment is a gamble.
Does anyone know how to pronounce his name? Is it Big-not or more like the French bigno` ?


Big-not I think, geir.

Happy with this appointment; exciting times. UTM

My first choice.  He is on an upward career path. He has delivered promotion, as champs, on low gates and a low budget.  He sets his team up to play attractive football.

He might even bring another young promising striker with him?

He might also wish that Bogle had a lower sell-on percentage.

Do you think that Fenty preferred working with a young and new manager, rather than say  an older and experienced manager like Dave Jones?

Nice to see lots of positivity about this appointment. Let's just hope the negative moaners behind the dugout don't crush his early optimism when he loses his first home game! We have to back this guy and give him time to adapt to league management.
