Russell Slade for me. The side he inherited wasn’t that bad with the likes of McKeown, Pearson, Dis, Osborne, and Sam Jones. The team he has put together is arguably worse than the one that took us down last time around. The fact that he destroyed what we had built for me makes him the worst manager in GTFC history.

Slade, he inherrited a good side that was missing a few pieces and instead flogged the good side and replaced the whole team with crap.


Alan Shearer tackled by a blue peter presenter

Its taken 9 months for the board to see sense but finally Slade is out!!!!!!

Slade for sure, Woods was already sadled with crap Slade has actually built this pack of cards side.

Even this current run is worse from a points perspective than the equivalent point of that 20 game streak in 09/10.

Lennie was nowhere near as bad as the rest down there.

Slade for me, but a close choice between him and Lyons

Woods was an untried inexperienced manager,

BUT

Slade was an experienced pro who had managed teams in leagues above us,

He let our best players leave and left us with an aging defence and 7 loan players although he thought we only had 6.

So Slade by a mile.

Wasn't around for Lyons. I have to say it's Newell for me by a country mile, the mess he left the club in was catastrophic. I've never seen such an unfit and unprofessional bunch of players.

I feel sorry for Neil Woods being on this list, it took him too long to turn it round, but he definitely improved us after Newell left. He was probably a little unlucky to get the sack when only 4 points off the playoffs in the conference. Another club legend tarnished by a failing board.

Unfortunately Slades legacy will linger for quite a long time. A complete Dodo in the football world. He was clueless, but still tried every conceivable way he could to shatter a reasonably decent squad when he took over. I wouldn't have been at all surprised if he had tried to get Scott Neilson and Andy Cook back here as fitness and mobility coaches.

Getting us to the play off final and knocking spurs out of the cup disqualifies Slade from this award, although the results of this season and the mess he's leaving the next manager will take some putting right

Waste of time. What is past is gone. Play fun games when we are safe.

What matters now is the next game and who is in charge for the 11 after that.
