I wouldn't worry too much about that, I don't think for a moment that the opinion of many on here had anything to do with Fenty's decision, since when did he take any notice of the fans



Perfect excuse though innit. Like it was our fault Hurst left, and not that he went 'to work with honest people'.

Pleased with this appointment, more forward looking than the usual merry-go-round manager, young, articulate and eager to make his mark on the game with plenty of coaching experience, but it is still a gamble as all managers are. Good that he is moving to the area with his family - welcome Mr (& Mrs!) Michael Jolley!

Great news.  Even if he doesn't mage to keep us up, which let's face it wont be his fault, I have confidence he could build a team to bring us straight back.


Erm, if you take over a team effectively 7 points ahead of relegation with 11 matches to play but can't keep them up, I think you have to take a decent chunk of the blame. Anything other than League status next season would be a Nicky Law of a job as far as I'm concerned.

Get what you're saying, but I think there's a middle ground between what you're both saying.

Nicky Law took over after Rodger had steered us to 3 wins in 6 games as caretaker.
Jolley takes over with us not having won in 14 games.

Like you say, still time for him to effect our season and keep us up, but he does inherit a team in much worse form than Law did.

Anyway, hopefully this'll be the last time anyone ever compares Jolley to Law.

Pleased with the appointment, he's a bit of an unknown quantity but that is more exciting than usual.

He's still got a poor squad to deal with for the rest of the season so has a job on his hands but hopefully we can nick the wins to stay up.

Some people are looking at his stats in Sweden with only 4 wins in 18 but you have to remember he took the job in very difficult circumstances, they were by far the worst squad in that Swedish top flight and would take a miracle to do anything with it, and I am given to understand despite all this he was actually well respected in Sweden.

And it's not even 7 points. If chesterfield win their game in hand it's 3 points. We lose today then they can go level on points with their games in hand.

You need to check your maths

We are 6 points ahead of Chesterfield who also have a game in hand so you could say our margin is 6 at best, 3 at worst, and we have picked a point in our last 6 games so others are catching us fast.

Also we can't expect him to wave a magic wand today having only been appointed yesterday. He has ten games.

I think he has a big task to turn this squad around, and the damage done by Slade is considerable. As I have said previously there are three massive home games, Port Vale, Barnet and Chesterfield. If he can win those I would say we are safe. I am worried that the Port Vale game may come a little soon, before he has had time to evaluate all of the players, but maybe his man management skills might be able motivate the players sufficiently to get a result.

I see this as a long term appointment, but if he saves us in the short term, all the better.

I can't imagine more difficult circumstances than the ones at BP right now, an assistant forced on him, thousands of fans baying for the owner to urine off, dreams of a new ground in tatters, a squad most of whom are either on loan or don't give a excrement (or both). I can't envisage a more difficult situation it makes Sweden where there are only two or three teams who are any good, look a doddle

He might have beaten Malmo and someone else but he still only managed 4 wins and 15 points and he failed as his club finished bottom. He didn't manage a miracle there lets hope he can conjure up one at BP - we need it. I don't want a well respected hungry young manager who got us relegated I just want one who kept us up and I worry this lad with his lack of experience might not be up to it. Thats why I would rather have had an older experienced hand
