Quoted from sydney
Not taken in by this appointment
MJ seems all too polished
Seen those who “talk a good un” before
This is not the time for an experimental manager
I fear this is such a bad decision at the wrong time
We will be in bottom two if all teams win their games in hand
And we are experimenting?
Really Really am trying to be optimistic but struggling
Red Cross me some hope
Come on Town!!!!


I am just concerned that Jolley totally confused / bullshitted call it what you will, Fenty (who lets face it knows intercourse all about football but would certainly have been impressed by some smooth talking financial whizz kid)

And Sean Dyche who I saw on TV last night extolling his virtues? The club say they spoke to a lot of people about him, and got the same answer from them all which is fair enough. Even our board would not make the same mistake they did with Newell and Bignot... would they?

Well they made the same mistake with Bignot that they made with Newell, they were keen to point out that they had carried out "due diligence" as they obviously didn't with Bignot.


Macca, Tait, Toto, Gowling, Robertson, Arnold, Dis, Clay, Nolan, Podge, Omar.

The best starting XI in my lifetime.

He's done well then to acquire a UEFA Pro Licence and coach at 4 league clubs with 'no experience of English football'. Good research though.

Who would you have appointed?


Someone experienced.

We'll see how long to takes for the plastics to turn on him.

Experienced at what?

Russell Slade was experienced.

I have no doubt Dyche thought highly of Jolley and would have said how good he was at managing U23s. He probably also told Fenty, if asked, that he would make a good manager one day.

But did Fenty ask if he would be any good at managing a motley crowd of disinterested no hopers who can't hit a cows bottom with a banjo striker-wise in a desperate limited games relegation battle at a run down dump of a stadium with a wooden main stand and a board who know nowt about football whose financial man tells folk to shut up when the questions get difficult and a non-chairman who is owed £2M and doesn't want to spend any more on players.

If Dyche said Jolley would urine, it then great!

Doesn't going on Saturday constitute a return?

Good one. 'The plastics'? So you're having a shot at Jolley and the supporters too? Does that make you a 'plastic' then as it sounds like you've already written him off and he hasn't managed a game yet!

You would have preferred someone 'experienced' - plenty of fans felt that was important - but you can't name anyone. We did obviously consider and approach some experienced people but it didn't work out for whatever reason.
You're gonna have to do better than this mate, or the plastics will turn on you

I had the advantage of being at the Carlisle away game and having no interruption in my viewing, whereas Michael probably would not be able to have this luxury in the company of the directors.

I fear he may not get team selection right on his first game (as he probably only saw snippets of the game), but I can identify with him - particularly as I never played professional football as well.

From the evidence of last Saturday (with ex professionals in charge), I'm pleased with Michael Jolley's appointment. Just hope he can scatter his 'sparkle dust' over the squad and get it to win a few of the next 10 games.
