Well judging by comments on here about his ways and attitude , a lot of posters wouldn't entertain him at GTFC.

I agree with everything you're saying, apart from Jolley. He has to stay, we are not a big glamorous club that will attract Chinese Investors, we need to stick with a young manager, who in their first full season ensured a pretty dire team stay up in League football. We may not go up next season but all the good PR of him can't be all hot air.

We see who we recruit and how we do next season, chopping and changing managers is not the solution.

Jolley has to go.. get more decent high quality players.

I'd say we need two midfielders similar to Hess, one to help him out to go alongside Whitehouse or Clifton and the other as backup.

Two strikers that can effect games. An Amond/Matt type combo because we are league two and it works. Vernam/McCallum(Eastleigh)?

Danny Collins is not first team so a replacement is needed for him.

RHJ is cover for right wingback but who is cover for left wingback?

Loans to facilitate injuries.

Are we keeping the 532, does it work in league two?

End of the day if you have money you have the better players, having better players helps.

That is a pretty damning indictment of basically his team and tactics.

How long does it take to learn the job? It was arguably a lot easier in the old days when players moved around less but we've had quite a few managers who have cut their teeth here and ended up with success here or bigger jobs elsewhere (Laws, Buckley, Slade, Hurst). The problem is in this division you have to be really crap to go down, so it's perfectly possible for managers to just tread water and end up with a succession of mid-table finishes, thereby keeping their job for a relatively long time.

On balance, I agree that he should stay, but "has to stay" is pushing it. If he got sacked, then I don't think he could have too many complaints, his list of mistakes this season is huge. And the most unforgivable one as far as I'm concerned is spending the entire pre season setting up to play a formation that he didn't sign the players capable of playing this system. Not only that, but didn't sign the players to play virtually any attacking system. Then we got to February and the 4-5-1/4-3-3 formation that had seen us go on a good run gets ditched to go back to the system that we still don't have the players to fit into it, then go on another appalling run.

If Slade had done this, he would be wanted out by everybody. We were shite under Slade but we haven't been much better this season.

If his ways are winning ones (which they are) that's all I care about and I'd have him like a shot. Nicy nicy attitude wins nowt

Yes. I suppose it would be nice for you if we won both the games you actually attend each season.  


The wife was going away for a girly weekend.
I jokingly remarked  'I don't know whether to spend it watching porn or watching football'
'you may as well spend it watching porn' she replied
That's understanding darling what makes you say that? I asked

She said 'Well you already know how to play football'
