Must be a bit of kicker now though Helgy, seeing as Appleton's not really cutting the mustard...what's the chances of him biting the dust before season's end seeing as though you have a board hell bent on success...


The board have given him a long contract so I doubt he would be got rid of, its important to let him get in his players should see that at the next window.
We only have 3 in contract at the end of the season so I expect big changes in the summer. He's inherited an unbalanced squad but only because of the previous managers (LH) squad set up.

Was Appleton the only applicant do you know Helgy?Though he’s have been dropping a level I thought you’d have gone for Adkins as he would have known how to keep your momentum going.

Quoted from Roast Em Bobby


Our record this year is W5 D4 L6 - hardly "constant rubbish" or "cannon fodder". It might not be the level of progress we would all love to see, but it is progress. Given he is also bringing through the young players and the club made a profit last year, I think he's doing a better job by a long way than what Slade was doing.


We were actually quite high in the table up to Christmas with Slade, until we dropped like a stone and I can only speculate, as is nearly always the case, that something went on "in the background"

Our sytle of play is not dissimilar to Slade, and we currently sit 18th in division 4, albeit with a game in hand. The manager is getting tetchy, the team is falling away - I wonder what the chances are that something has "gone on in the background"?

If you think that nearly 20 seasons in division 4, and in the lower reaches of it, together with 6 years in non-league is not constant rubbish then fair enough.

There were others but they were happy were they were ,Adkins was a good shout but Appleton is a good appointment and is his own man which I think is important.

Quoted from denni266
I have been saying for two yrs that MJ  is not a manager  and is not learning from his mistakes. He is probably a very good coach of players but that is not what a proper manager does, its a whole different world. I would think that 70% of experienced managers struggle at times so MJ has no chance in the long run. Hanson is a very good winner of the ball especially in the air, but you need players round him to run on to flick ons etc. At the moment he wins the ball and has no options but to try hold on to it until maby one player gets near him 10 seconds too late


To be honest I'd never heard of Jolley until he joined us last year.... credit to you for keeping tabs on him back then though and keeping everyone informed

It's a good job you weren't born in to being a Rochdale suppporter Lew..... they spent nearly twice that length of time in the bottom division.

I'm spoiled  

Some of us have seen better days, but those poor sods born in the last 20 years have had division 4 or non-league like it or lump it.

On that long term view Lew, you could hardly blame Jolley then.

I saw your face and heard you call my name.
Oh my friend we're older but no wiser,
For in our hearts the dreams are still the same.
