Both left us in a relegation fight but who made the worst signings and left the worst impression on you overall? The more I think about it the more I feel going to games when Slade was in charge the second time was more frustrating than Newell. Maybe that's just recency bias though.

Interesting question. IMO I would say Slade mark II as well.

Newell was a disaster but he came in on the back of poor seasons after 05/06 with the club in a huge decline.

Slade mark II took over with us in mid table in L2 looking half decent. With some sensible additions we could have kicked on. So he goes and signs Dixon and Clarke...and many other of that ilk.

Was also bonkers how after every game no matter how shocking we were he always claimed we played well!

It's hard to equate really. Slade Mk2 seemed hell-bent on culling the Bignot signings as his first priority and I'm drawn to the conclusion that this was driven by the board who must have approved said signings in the first place.

I agree. Jack Daniels, Johnie Walker and Carl Sberg gave  him a hard time. Don't forget that female dog Stella Artois .

So we are only allowed to bring up the good,old days once a week then and never discuss the bad seasons?  

There's already another long thread of people remembering the good times. Nobody around here is looking forwards lol. I suppose "remember when we were good?" is better than "remember when we were excrement?". It was just a discussion topic, I figured I'd attempt something different than "New stadium back on/off", "Some local team is doing better than us, bet it won't last because *insert reason*  " or "remember that time in the 70's when we won that one game?" along with the old favourites "We won! We're on for promotion and have the best team in the league!"  "We lost! We're doomed unless the manager is sacked now and we buy 10 new players including a 20 goal a season striker and a creative winger"
