Let's look at this logically.  We currently sit 6 points off an automatic promotion place and 6 off a relegation place.  3 wins on the trot and we're right in the mix, 3 losses and we're in trouble.  The team in 17th place win their game in hand and they jump to 9th.  It's tight, very tight.

We need someone in to hit the ground running and keep the points ticking over until we get to 50 and safety, anything else this season is a bonus.  Given our financial position, net trading +£59k but an underlying debt of £4m, we have no money to spend.  The cards we have are the cards we play.  Marcus has got his current club into the National League on a shoestring, he talks the language we want to hear and from his location and playing history, must have the right contacts.  For me he ticks the boxes, no appointment comes with guarantees.

My contact 'Mr Social media' told me the same

I like the looks of Bignot, hope this is true and he does well with us.  I would like us to be a club that helps young managers on their way up the leagues (hopefully with us at least for a while) rather than plucking big names that for some reason get talked about a lot.  Maybe that is just cos I am burnt from Mike Newell who I must confess I thought was a fantastic appointment at the time.

Me too. With hindsight we should have picked up on the fact he had been unemployed for a while and his time at Hartlepool and Luton had not been all sweetness and light.

At least with Bignott we know he is gainfully employed, his current employers think a lot of him, he finds good players and he works hard. That's a start and that will do for me.

Can we have a ceremonial ripping up of his season ticket from "Ian" on the pitch before the Barnet game?

Very good post. We talk about 'Fenty going for the cheap option' but we seem to forget that we have a few millions pounds worth of debt. A lot of managers who we have been linked with have only had success with teams with big budgets.

I've actually heard this isn't the case and the interview process only concluded late yesterday. Are the telegraph and RH getting a bit ahead of themselves?

And me....
Must confess though alarm bells were ringing very early doors when Newell said something like he just picked the team and never got involved with any coaching.I think Bignott will do well here lets face it if he makes the right noises in his first press conference the fans will eat it up there are 5k fans here at GTFC wanting to back any new manager and this team to the hilt.

It's rather strange now that he has "allegedly" been offered the job that his odds at Skybet have gone from 1/8 to 2/7 this morning?
