The Cardiff and Coventry fans are delighted for us.Can anyone recall any other Manager as unpopular as Slade either at Gy or anywhere? The past Month I cannot recall a single person other than JF backing him that in itself is very unusual and must be Slade`s last job in football management.


Mike Lyons. Not only did he think he could manage, he also thought he could play centre forward in a Roy of the Rovers type way.

Lyons time here was similar to Slades in that he was just a wrecking ball. Good intentions but a wrecker. Yet even under Lyons we had some genuine excitement, not least the Arsenal home game, Charlie Nicholas and all.
That game still stands out in the memory, Slade leaves here with nothing, no great one-off games to think back on, just bad feelings amongst the fans.
Awful appointment, can't begin to fathom the reasoning behind it.

I think ALL GOLFER'S posts are done tongue in cheek.



....and tongue in cheek could be interpreted as lies.

Quoted from golfer


A fool is a fool who believes everything that a fool foolishly repeats what a fool told him about a fool  P.S. if you believe that statement issued by GTFC you are definitely fools. A deal was done on condition that participants keep it a secret so that somebody could keep face. Another manager already lined up-similar scenario to last debacle



So within that first sentence you admit to being a fool!

Well the win over Spurs in his first spell was up there in fairness but I know what you mean.Lyons was a big name when we got him and I recall it caused a lot of initial excitement.Not sure if I have this right but he had a coach to start with called Terry Darracott and all was well then he left and ML took us steadily downhill to relegation?

Exactly right. Darracott was well regarded, Lyons based his entire move here on the back of him joining him but he bailed out and stayed in his old position. Could have worked out had this not happened, imagine Buckley Mk I without Arthur Mann as his right hand man.

Lyons did have the off-field aspects of the club down well though, always getting the players down the docks and around the town, he appreciated the fans commitment. Slade Mk II was too busy messing up doing the clubs PR on the field to bother with all that.

Yeah. And all of those forward forays (we were habitually chasing games under him...) included at least one pathetic, theatrical dive in the box.

On at least two occasions - before my eyes - when there was no opponent in touching distance!

Lyons was awful in every way....but then he  had an agenda to be awful (allegedly).

Some views from Coventry fans :-

https://www.skybluestalk.co.uk/threads/slade.84097/


Slade on the other hand, was just a clown. The only buzz he brought to the club was the buzz of the life support machine being switched off come February, with his horrendous tactics and diabolical signings. We were dead and buried by February thanks to him.

Well not quite but not that far off.
