I am not over the moon BUT he can set a team up and we will be far better off with him at the helm of that I am certain.

Why?

Not usual for a manager at this level to bring his own physio in is it?

Should have appointed him 8 years ago, so when Fenty said to him he couldn't be more pleased at the end of the press conference, i thought it was all about righting wrongs and trying to re-live the past. I didn't like Hurst and i don't like Slade, so it's a sad day for me. There i said it.

Shows it is all about opinions Ginny.

i liked Hurst but said very early in his tenure that  Bignot didnt sit right. All mouth and little substance but again just an opinion.

Slade and Wilkinson will do for me and i bet we finish higher next season that this

Well it's Slade then, certainly not that keen on him. Mind you I have returned my toys to the pram after saying I would not go to the remaining games and not renew my ST. I will be there on Friday and the wife pays for my ST anyway. Let's hope both Slade and Wilko can get to grips with the squad and sort out their preferred system and players in the remaining 5 games. I must admit though to looking forward to the squad building that will have to be done.

I think if you take away his last two jobs at troubled clubs Charlton and Coventry this season, then he's got a good pedigree, and let's not forget, finished 8th in the championship last season.

In Wilko, we've got a local legend and a highly respected coach that's been at plenty of decent clubs throughout the divisions.

I'm looking forward to having an experienced management team, and whilst i hope we continue to try and unearth non-league gems, i'm also looking forward to Wilko and Slade being able to possibly being able to attract a higher calibre of player.

It's funny how we like or don't like individuals isn't it? That's what it is about really - the fact that they are football managers is almost a side issue.

I never took to Bignot and yet I like both Hurst and Slade. I certainly am very happy with these two experienced people at the helm, who have connections with the club from the past who will give us a real competitive edge. As always you pays your money and takes your choice!

Nice to have Wilkie back.

Whenever I see him I can't help remembering Dave Booth looking at a 17 year old Paul in a junior or a reserve  game before he broke through into the first team and saying that Wilkie running was like a new born foal.

I would say it is our business, yes. Is he here for the long haul (whatever that is nowadays) or is he here to guide Wilko into the job? Will he be in charge next season and will he be seen as someone to develop the future of the club, with the youth set up and other stuff?

Think you have hit the nail on the head there, when Slade eventually gets the bullet, (because he will, they all do)  Wilko will be already here to step up.

Still remember that debut Ron, had the perfect view from the Pontoon, Wilko had just come on, gangly and all legs and almost immediately got the ball edge of the box and slid it past the keeper straight towards where I was standing.
A treasured memory (sniff)

Well, put it this way Lew, we've had our dose of fresh air through the club and now it's time to shut the door and keep the draughts out.

A very experienced manager who did quite well for us last time around. The appointment of Wilko will help to deflect some of the flak which would otherwise have been heading Slade's way and we get an experienced striking coach to boot. Could perhaps be helpful to Asante's development?

Not exactly over the moon but, on balance, I think I'm happier with him at the helm than Bignot who never showed me any reason to trust his judgment.

A very experienced manager who did quite well for us last time around. The appointment of Wilko will help to deflect some of the flak which would otherwise have been heading Slade's way and we get an experienced striking coach to boot. Could perhaps be helpful to Asante's development?

Not exactly over the moon but, on balance, I think I'm happier with him at the helm than Bignot who never showed me any reason to trust his judgment.


Not just Asante but Rose and Jones as well.

We have just appointed a guy who was L1 manager of the year twice, and finished 8th in the Championship a year ago. He is assisted by a true GTFC legend, a local lad who loves the club.

I think we will be more likely to challenge for promotion next season than if MB remained in charge.

Regarding the length of his contract

Fenty when appointing Marcus said 6 month rolling contracts are the future,

So I expect Slade to be on that which means every morning he wakes up he has 6 months left on his contract.

Whatever folk think about whether it was right to (a) sack Marcus Bignot, or (b) bring in the pairing we now have we do have to realiSe that football is, sadly, a results driven game and that whilst managers are just custodians of the club for a short while it's the fans that keep it going. It's therefore imperative that the fans of the clib as a whole get right behind the new team and get some momentum going again. Onwards and upwards. UTFM.

League 1 manager of the year twice, yet didn't get his team promoted either time. Just for balance.

He comes with a clean slate, so although i'm not thrilled with the appointment, he will get my backing 100%. Spoke to those i attend games with and they all feel a bit Meh! about Slade but all feel the same about it being a new dawn and will judge accordingly.

It is what it is. On a positive note, with him at the helm last time we had some decent players and a bloody good squad that he worked with, Rob Jones, Whittle, Gary Jones, Reddy, Woodhouse, JP, Parkinson. It was the closest we ever got to league 1 in nearly 10 years. We beat Spurs and Wigan that year and had a decent go at Newcastle. There will be alot of miffed supporters that do not forgive the way he left, but he was a young manager in the FL for the first time, and like most young managers they want to challenge themselves. I just hope it was naivety at the time. He returns to us with a lot more experience and some of the best fans in the country

It's a solid appointment. Plenty of experience between Slade and Wilko.

I can understand why a section of our support isn't inspired or excited by it, but I think they'll bring stability. When you think of the difference in experience between Bignot and Slade, you'd say we're in safer hands next season.

Hopefully we'll get a bit more organisation and consistency in both our line-ups and tactics, so we can enjoy supporting a team again.

I feel sorry for Marcus. You could put a good case that he should have been given more time into autumn but some of those beatings we took pointed to far deeper issues than just trying out some of the fringe squad players. He will be waking up in a cold sweat thinking about his team selection and set-up for that Doncaster game. But he'll get over it and hopefully come back stronger. He needs to work on articulating his views clearly and concisely because if I had a boss who blathered like that it would affect my confidence and performance.

As for Slade, he wouldn't have been my first choice but I could certainly see him leading us in League 1 rather than the League 2 relegation battle I was expecting with Marcus next season. I would have preferred someone like Adkins who didn't bring that baggage from the past which is going to upset some people. Town fans have long memories and having been there in Cardiff that day I couldn't have imagined letting Slade back into the club.

We are where we are though and realistically I'm more positive about next season than I was. Wilko being back is a real plus and hopefully he can help develop the forward line. We have trawled non-league for our buys this season and Sam Jones and Jamey Osborne are excellent additions. Hopefully Russ and Paul will have the contacts to bring in some more league players for next season.

This is a big period for the club with a new ground potentially coming fairly soon. Slade is a safer bet to retain our league status and push on. That was probably in Fenty's thinking when he walked out of the BP shaking his head on April 1st along with the rest of us.

I think some people are just salty still for things that happened years ago because they value loyalty above everything else,  that's fine but people have been calling for us to bring in an experienced manager since Hurst up and left and were upset when Bignot was appointed because he didn't have league experience. Now we have a management team with plenty of league experience.

Yes old wounds in Grimsby never seem to close and it happened, maybe Hurst up and leaving opened up that fear again that people will be gone as soon as a better offer comes along but that's just football. For now we have a proven manager at the helm who has done well in league football. Maybe that will inspire more confidence than another full season under Bignot I don''t know. I think both the players and fans probably need to be given more confidence in the one in charge.

They are saying MB would have had us in a relegation scrap. I think that is rubbish myself but it seems to be the prevailing view and is possibly why those who didn't trust MB are delighted to have the bald one back, because he is a safe pair of hands.

On reflection, i think i need to get over my pissedoffery with the whole business and say welcome back Russel and Paul, you are now the main men and i wish you well. Wish i wasn't going away for the weekend now and missing the game. It will be interesting to see what happens on Friday.

I wasn't a big fan of Bignot, but no one can say he would of had us in a relegation scrap.

But he clearly come in and upset the squad harmony that Hurst had worked hard on over the years

Pleased with this. A manager whose players know what he wants from them. Losing 2 League 1 playoff finals with tiny clubs (one on pens) hardly warrants a failure tag.

I agree with the majority of what you say but even Adkins would have had some opposition from some quarters because of the Scunthorpe connection. You cannot please everyone thats for sure, but I think on balance Slade and Wilkinson give us hope for next season.

No one seems to be reflecting on the type of football that might be played now. Football is results driven but not, for me, at any cost. At our best Town have always been a true footballing side - if that matters, will Slade deliver?

Now I've stopped being sick I will have my 10 pence worth.

I have not said anything about Fenty all season but the amnesty is over.
This is another excrement appointment by Fenty who has made no end of excrement decisions in the name of our club..
FFS man why didn't you take your time and get some advice from people who actually know about football.
This is a backward step for our club.
How the intercourse Slade gets job after job I'm copulated if I know.
Funnily enough I'm doing job interviews tomorrow and if someone who comes for a job tells me they have been sacked 9 times (for being incompetent at his job) in the last 10 years including twice in the last 8 months I would think the bloke has a flipping cheek to even apply.

Fenty your an idiot and Slade your excrement.

Apart from that I will be there Friday and renewing my ST to support the team no the MSH or the fat twit in the hat.

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.

Nice to have Wilkie back.

Whenever I see him I can't help remembering Dave Booth looking at a 17 year old Paul in a junior or a reserve  game before he broke through into the first team and saying that Wilkie running was like a new born foal.

Well there are more than enough posts on the Fishy in the past two days about his previous Town team and his teams at Yeovil. Orient etc. to tell you that Slade likes his sides to play football.

Quoted from Garth


First time I saw him in the first team I said to my lad "He will never make a footballer as long as he`s got a hole in his rrs"   what do I know  


Paul and John McDermott are outstanding examples of how hard work can pay off. I saw Paul play as a lad and he was good because he was deceptively quick and also tall for his age but he didn't have much in the way of bulk or control of his limbs. I didn't think he would make it very far either to be honest. But, Paul was lucky to come through when we had an excellent youth set up  and managers in George Kerr and Dave Booth who were willing to take a chance with him and Lund even in what is now the Championship, and to learn from people like Drinkell, Wymark and Nichol.

Quoted from headingly_mariner
Humberside have an interview with Fenty were he talks about slade. He also talks about  Bignot's departure and how he'd been worried since January. Top new Fentyisms as well "barking up a gumtree" and "tintalates the buds" he popped a few old favourites in as well 😂


Maybe Fenty felt threatened by Bignot strangulating the English language better than he does. The meeting between them to sack him must have needed a translator.

It was also interesting to hear in Slade's interview with Humberside that he was up a mountain when Fenty called about the job. Matt Dean asked when that was and Slade indicated it was the Tuesday after Marcus had been sacked. Well in my book I'd usually call that yesterday. I'm not bothered personally but if you're going to fib then think about the questions you will probably get beforehand.

Why are they not saying how long his contract is?


Because it's longer than a six month rolling contract i.e jobs for the boys.

Solid appointment imo. feel a lot safer with these 2 in charge than I did with Bignot at the helm.


Wilko was kicked out of the Norwich City set up because he's stuck in the 80s regarding coaching techniques.

No one seems to be reflecting on the type of football that might be played now. Football is results driven but not, for me, at any cost. At our best Town have always been a true footballing side - if that matters, will Slade deliver?


Well said Big Al, I don't think he will and believe that was his downfall the last time he was here. All the better footballing sides that season swept us aside with ease.

Now I've stopped being sick I will have my 10 pence worth.

I have not said anything about Fenty all season but the amnesty is over.
This is another excrement appointment by Fenty who has made no end of excrement decisions in the name of our club..
FFS man why didn't you take your time and get some advice from people who actually know about football.
This is a backward step for our club.
How the intercourse Slade gets job after job I'm copulated if I know.
Funnily enough I'm doing job interviews tomorrow and if someone who comes for a job tells me they have been sacked 9 times (for being incompetent at his job) in the last 10 years including twice in the last 8 months I would think the bloke has a flipping cheek to even apply.

Fenty your an idiot and Slade your excrement.

Apart from that I will be there Friday and renewing my ST to support the team no the MSH or the fat twit in the hat.

Alternatively he's got a longer contract because Fenty is more sure of Slade being a more competent manager than Hurst or Bignot because of his longer CV.

That's fair enough Tagg but neither you nor I are "chairman" of a football club. I've interviewed people a-plenty in my job but the priorities, qualifications and personality issues were completely different to those in football. It's very much a personal opinion business. I'm sure opinion is canvassed better now than it was for Newell but appointments are very much on a personal level. In any case, the field is very limited.

You cannot say someone is useless because they get the push from Coventry or Charlton because they are both asylums for deficient directors at the moment. If Paddy Hamilton had taken the "been sacked" approach we would never have had Laurie McMenemy, Watford would never have taken Graham Taylor back, Town would never have had Buckley Mk2.

If you are making the "once bitten" argument about the Cardiff final, surely nobody can seriously believe that was a one-sided pen!s up. But times change anyway, and so do people.

Personally I am waiting to be convinced by the new pairing. I was over-enthusiastic with MB because he seemed such a positive change from what we were used to. As with MB, S&W need the benefit of the doubt for a bit. MB was a fool and threw away a real chance to make a good name for himself in the game. It looked like pride before a fall to me. He needed a proper number two to take the weight but he wanted to be the new Cloughie. With a bit of humility and calming himself down he would have gained himself the time he needed. As a result it is these two who have the pre-season to get acquainted with the players.

I was upset that MB had been sacked but not knowing the reasons why you have to accept that it has been done with the best interests of the club at heart. I welcome Russ and Wilko and will support them and am sure we will be up there fighting for an automatic promotion spot next season. As always supporting GTFC is never easy but we have the best fans in the country and I am sure we will see a good gate at BP on Friday to see what kind of team is put out. Onwards and upwards.

Utter drivel!
Took over here after we'd been relegated twice in a row and built up a promotion challenging side. Did we get anywhere near that after he left?
Took a unfancied Yeovil and Leyton Orient sides to the play off final in League One. Look where they are now, especially Leyton Orient. Haven't they thrived since he left them?!!!!
Took over at Brighton when they were staring relegation in the face, and kept them up.
Maybe this is why he gets jobs.
How can he have been sacked 9 times if we're his 9th managerial appointment?
Also, how do you feel about Paul Wilkinson being back as Slade's assistant?
It's highly unlikely that a club like Town will get a manager who has never been sacked!

Bignot got promoted from a semi-professional league at the fifth time of asking. Yes it's an achievement but let's not pretend it's on a par with getting clubs the size of Yeovil or Orient in to the league one play offs. The gulf in quality between the NL and the NL north is huge and the gap from the NL to the FL is equally as big. And so it proved for MB.

Crap, im not particularly a Slade fan myself but he's here, get over it. I don't think Slade has been sacked 9 times for being incompetent, on some occasions he has left of his own free will,. Its obvious you are a manager or an employer with pre-conceived ideas so i'm bloody pleased your not interviewing me tomorrow, (Too old anyway). Someones incompetence is nearly always due to poor management skills and/or lack of support from their Employer. Good luck to everyone being interviewed by Tagg tomorrow. You are  going to need it.

I agree that MB's selections were puzzling and entertainment under his period in charge has been limited. He has now gone & II have no problem with Slades return, however, reading MB's latest comments supports some of what I said on Monday and points to poor communication between himself and JF a point strengthened by JF stating he started to worry in January!!!

Why then agree to bring in around 9 new players, why not advise him to cut the crap at press interviews and why not put him in a room with Buckley to discuss tactics. At the end of the day he was a young, inexperienced Manager who had lots of very good ideas and plans which with support and time may have been for the long term benefit of the club. Look how Leeds treated Clough & what happened next!!!

JF appointed him but appears to have failed to grasp that he would be making mistakes and would need a little support and he appears to have given MB too much rope too soon and of course his team selection v Donny meant he hanged himself.

Anyway rambling on but now we have a new management team please ensure that there are proper communications as just giving the Manager what he wants is not always the correct approach.

Good luck RS & Wilco I hope you are a success and we can enjoy some home games with a midfield that dominates matches rather than watches the other team dominate us.

What will you say if the applicant tells you he has on more than one occasion left previous companies (much bigger than yours) in a far better state !!!


So what club that he get sacked from did he leave in a higher division than he found them???

People don't get the sack for being a success.

If a bloke went to Fentys fish factory for say a production managers job with that employment record he would be laughed out of his office.

Is there any Manager with a worse employment record than Slade working today?????


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.

Think the Stockport game was one of those where they had not won a game for ages and we all arrived expecting another 3 points and think that young full back from Man City gave us the lead. Also seem to recall they scored a bizarre goal that night but cannot remember if that it was via a terrible refs decision, player error or great skill, bloody annoying losing your memory!!

He's a good solid manager who was managing in the Championship last season. God knows how some people think we could do better. Seems to me that some people are just making up more excuses when the main reason they're not happy is because of how he left last time, but they really need to get over it. There's two sides to every story.

Welcome back to them both.

Think the Stockport game was one of those where they had not won a game for ages and we all arrived expecting another 3 points and think that young full back from Man City gave us the lead. Also seem to recall they scored a bizarre goal that night but cannot remember if that it was via a terrible refs decision, player error or great skill, bloody annoying losing your memory!!


It was Whittle slicing a harmless cross over Mildenhall into the far corner!

Lump scored for us though, you're thinking of Rochdale (also on a Friday night) a couple of years later when Shaleum Logan scored

Quoted from TAGG


So what club that he get sacked from did he leave in a higher division than he found them???

People don't get the sack for being a success.

If a bloke went to Fentys fish factory for say a production managers job with that employment record he would be laughed out of his office.

Is there any Manager with a worse employment record than Slade working today?????


He didn't get sacked 9 nine times as you've been claiming.

Scarborough - Left them for us.
Grimsby Town - Left us for Yeovil.
Yeovil - Resigned citing lack of ambition from the chairman.
Brighton - Joined them in March with them stuck in the relegation zone of league one. Kept them up against all odds but sacked at start of next season. First sacking.
Leyton Orient - Resigned for Cardiff job.
Cardiff - Technically resigned. Position changed from manager to director of football then he resigned a few days later.
Charlton - Sacked
Coventry - Sacked

So actually from 8 management jobs in the last 15 years he's been sacked from three, left three for jobs higher up the football pyramid and resigned from two. But don't let the facts get in the way of your rants.

"Swept us aside with ease that season".

Carlise: Lost at home 2-1, lost away 1-0.
Northampton: Drew at home 1-1, drew away 0-0. We all remember the home game where they equalised in injury time.
Leyton Orient: Lost at home 1-0, drew away 0-0 and should have won but Goodfellow missed a sitter in the last minute hitting the bar.

Hardly sweeping us aside with ease. Three narrow losses, a draw and two other draws we should have won.

The point is that you're completely wrong to claim they swept us aside with ease. More re-writing of history from someone who is anti-Slade.

Exactly. And Calderwood's Northampton certainly weren't a footballing side.

Thanks for bringing that Carlisle game up though. I was in a good mood but now all I can think about is Tom Newey smashing that penalty against the bar

Just read Slades comments in the Grimsby telegraph today and thought he was spot on in what he said.Amongst other things values mentality as much as ability

Still gutted for Marcus though

Imagine our new awful manager being able to turn around a 2-0 home first leg defeat to the mighty Nottingham Forest...

Quoted from big al
No one seems to be reflecting on the type of football that might be played now. Football is results driven but not, for me, at any cost. At our best Town have always been a true footballing side - if that matters, will Slade deliver?


I also look forward to seing us playing attractive football but the inability to pass the ball accurately and players not runninng off the ball to receive it and then when they do the ball bounces all over the shop because they havn't learned how to trap and control the ball, is there for all to see. He is largely stuck with these players so id be interested to know what the fans solution is if they are expecting us to play like Barcelona now?

Also unless we find a striker able to score 20 plus goals a season or a pairing able to get us 30 plus between them I dont think it matters what style of football we play

Sam Jones could well be a 20 goal a season man. I guess we shall see.

Agree with Madeley Mariner about a goalscorer.
I am not sure about RS. His departure 11 years ago still rankles. In the interest of unity, however, I hope he is successful this time and will judge him by results.

An example of one of Bignots " square pegs in round holes " !! He came as a midfielder and seems to have blossomed into a striker.
