Wow. I don't think any manager had a chance with that bunch.

That is the danger when you fill your squad with players on the way down, just picking up a wage. Sweeney had played in a cup final for Millwall, Proudlock was highly rated at Sunderland, Linwood came from League One Tranmere and I've heard about Conlon's antics at Bradford before he came here.

In one sense I miss the identity that we built in the Conference years and hope we can get towards that again.

It's basically.... "we didn't care about Grimsby town and once newell got sacked the lads wouldn't play for Neil Woods as he wouldn't go out on the p1ss with us"

An absolute shambles of a man.

Proudlock never played for Sunderland and we signed Linwood from a Chester side who were worse than us

Linwood's career was in terminal decline which is surprising given the dedication and professionalism he describes.

As for the Proudlock, the Sunderland fans would be more likely to rate him if he never played for them. If he had they'd think he was a useless fat sharp object like we do.

Think he was referred to as Paul Deadwood.


Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day,teach a man to fish and you give him an excuse for him to escape from the wife and kids for the weekend and drink lots of beer.

Most of that squad were at semi pro teams within a few years, what a bunch of girl privates, and poor woodsy.

This is why we need to support our manager though, remember this was jolleys first ever full season(start to finish) in charge of a professional team, think about how valuable a few years experience has been in your own jobs. I really don't want to ever be a merry go round club for managers or players ever again, because that's what can happen.

However, he was highly rated at Wolves.

I find it very hard to believe that Deadwood (RIP Doris) believes it OK to laugh & joke about effectively taking the urine out of hard-working fans.

I don’t think we blamed Neil Woods, we blamed the one who appointed him and who must have known the score with that gang.

What I did blame Neil for was not getting us back up straightaway by not realising the sort of players and tactics needed to get out of the conference.


He would have been the managerial appointment of the century if he'd managed to get us promoted before the end of February 2011.

Well I’ve just listened and although I’m not massively surprised, it is incredible to have it confirmed.

I feel so sorry for Woods. He should never have been put in that position. flipping obvious we’d go down. Massive failure in due diligence in?appointing that clown Newell in the first place and an even bigger one expecting Woods to sort it out. I’d have taken a flipping flamethrower to those useless illegitimates.
