There is some sympathy on the Chester forum at the timing and the lack of backing. But most seem to think he asked for it with public comments about the club/board/players.

Interesting that Chester are supposed to have someone American interested in a takeover.


Have you ever noticed that anybody driving slower than you is an idiot, and anyone going faster than you is a maniac?

Didn't a Yank own them years ago? Seem to remember a previous period of dodgy ownership.

I know they say beware the Ides of March, but Bignot is going to start being wary of early April

Twice in one year he's been sacked in the same week

April is the cruelest month.

Am I the only one that has a bit of sympathy for Bignot?!

I ask myself would our club be in the position it is now if  Bignot was still in charge? I’m 100% certain we wouldn’t, not saying we would be world beaters but we wouldn’t be in this dire position we find ourselves now.

Would I swap him for Jolley?  Absolutely not, not been this excited about our manager since Buckley.


Are we any closer to getting promoted since Hurst has been here? No

Has he been given time to achieve promotion by the chairman and fans? Yes

Hurst out

Managers seem to divide opinion more than any other facet of football. A lot, and I mean a lot of people didn't like Alan Buckley. To them he was arrogant, a clever so and so. To others, me included he was next to God.

I think it must boil down to personalities as it doesn't seem to matter that much if a manager is successful or not! Bignot was not my cup of tea, whereas Slade was. I  have liked quite a few managers over the years, the most popular ones for me being Jimmy McGuigan, Lawrie Mac and Buckley. Some are so so, others detested but there is nothing like a manager to divide fans.

As regards Bignot I thought it was what was was happening, or not happening, in training and the way he was acting that made the boards mind up not results on the field.

No chance.
It's been said on here (and other places) a million times there is no one in the world interested in buying/investing a football club.


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.

We'd be rock bottom if we'd stuck with that massive clown.
