You are chairman/majority shareholder so what would you do given the choice this evening?

I am basically suggesting that if the management team were to go, that would swallow up the budget for the season.

Could we find a good replacement in 4 weeks ( or before the window shuts)? Doubtful.
What caretaker option do we have that could manage us through a transfer window to the extent that he brings in a few quality signings?!?
Deeply flawed poll.

Sometimes the best course of action is to hold your nerve and do nothing. I suspect that targets have already been identified and initial contact made, so best wait and see where we are at the end of the window and beyond. I don't think a new manager is what we need right now, unless there is an outstanding candidate waiting in the wings. And even if there was, i don't think the board will be contemplating a change at the moment. He's only had one window so far and any manager has to be given a bit of time, even one as unpopular as Slade is right now.

What makes you think Slades targets will be any better than the last lot???
Don’t give the useless twit anymore money just get rid now.


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 don't think anything. I will wait and see who comes in and then decide. It's easy to just say get rid, but then what? Who comes in? Will he be any better? I have said many times that i am not a fan of Slade but we are not in a perilous position at the moment, despite all the doom and gloom around.

Do we really want to be onto our 4th manager ( 5th if you count Dave Moore's caretaker stint) in one and a half seasons?

We might still only be on our second if Trigger hadn't fired Bignot.

You've missed one... Sack Slade & Wilkinson and give the new manager funds to start rebuilding the squad

Totally agree with this......many of us including me are a bit fed up with current results at the moment but we still have to live in the real world

We are not even flirting with the relegation places at the moment.

Agree with Ginny on this. Besides, it'd be like shuffling the deckchairs on the Titanic.
