What ever the reason Jolley has gone maybe (I doubt we'll find out ofr a long while), I just hope whoever does come in does three things. One plays some sort of attacking football, whether its fast passing like Crewe or quick counter attacking like Liverpool. Two, keeps playing the youth players that are in and around the squad and doesn't force them out come transfer window time and three leaves someone up top when we are defending corners and freekicks to give us an outlet when we are successful.


This, apart from the obsession with leaving people up for corners. I have read and heard several coaches say the less people in the box the easier it becomes to get a clear run and attack the ball. Sam Allardyce explained this and TBH I can't think of a better manager to look to for defending set pieces.

This 'leaving a man up' is bordering on flask territory!!!

Quoted from mimma
Does it really matter why he's gone? He's gone and that's the end of it. If someone gets the sack at work they don't have to go round and explain it do they?

It's obvious that the style of play and players body languish that it's not working and it looks like Jolley couldn't change it. What more do you want?


Summed up perfectly.

It bugs me to death that we don't and I'm nowhere near flask territory. You've just got to look at the number of times this season we've cleared the ball from a corner or freekick, for it to come straight back into the box because we haven't got anyone outside of the box to compete for it, putting us under more pressure once again.

Its taken 9 months for the board to see sense but finally Slade is out!!!!!!

Except we have the best guy in the league (Hanson) and the 6th best (Waterfall) to win the aerial ball, so the space would benefit us.

I'd leave 3 up to depopulate the penalty area. Maybe old-school, maybe deranged...I'm not sure. (Someone will tell me   )

But those defending tend to be stationary or running towards their own goal. Having played (all be it at a lower level) once someone has 'the run on you' and is attacking the ball, if the delivery is right there is very little you can do bar foul them. I won't requoute Allardyce but I would imagine he researched this to death and has it backed ip by more statistics than you would find in the financial times!!!!

We have been really poor at passing and keeping the ball. This season and last TBH we’ve also looked really disorganised at both defending attacking set pieces. You only have to look at our kick off (Hess back to a CB who hoofs it to Hanson) to understand the game plan.

Keeper as captain, square pegs, zero width, week in week out defensive/shape changes, Vernam loaned out, Clifton going backwards, hoof ball, poor home form. supposed altercations with supporters, bigging up the opposition, cliche after cliche in the media, etc... etc... every manager makes mistakes but they where stacking up under Jolley at an alarming rate. If you look at how it tends to end with sacked managers the signs where there and maybe he recognised that too, who knows?

He as well as Macca’s saves and Mitch Rose’s penalties kept us up that season and he should always be regarded highly for that. I also think though it’s thin on numbers this squad is better than when he started.

It’s a really hard job being a L2 Manager one that you need a thick skin for which incidentally I don’t think he has but I hope he finds a career in football because he cares and clearly he understood what GTFC meant.

The acid test of wether a sacking is right or not is if the replacement is an upgrade............. over to you JF 🙈🤬
