Sounds like we could have some good deals on season tickets here next season.

Mr BIron, a bit chalk and cheese when listening to Hurst and Adkins, I would not know their coaching abilities but pre match pep talk or doing the media rounds Adkins has it in spades.

Nigel Adkins is a messiah in these parts, a true club legend. Genuinely cared about the town and the supporters, something that seems to be lost on our current regime these days. I had the pleasure of meeting him when he was Southampton manager on a train. I was on the way to University in Sheffield and i spent the full hour talking to him about football. He could have easily not gave me the time of the day but i believe he genuinely enjoyed talking football with me.

Can only dream of having a manager like him and a football owner like Steve Wharton in the future.  Gave me the greatest youth  supporting Scunny.

We should never have sacked Hurst, personally I felt he was doing a solid job and given time he will have got us promoted with the right backing. Whilst his persona was very dull, His recruitment skills definitely couldn't be questioned. Made some good signings. Man management skills, he managed to get KVV performing consistently when other managers couldn't due to his attitude.

Wilcox is the right man short term but certainly not long term. We have been there and done that with him. Either way, under Swann there is a big danger we will fall out of the football league. Grateful for the money he has provided us but he has made us become a sacking club, fallen out with our local council and players. Even the most loyal Scunny fans are starting to boycott games. I am a season ticket holder and won't be renewing it next season until Swann changes his ways or leaves.  UTI

Must say it is nice for a change to have a Scunny fan on here that wants to have a genuine discussion rather than troll or goad.

I can barely imagine what sort of conversation you might have got if it had been Hurst on that train! I suspect you may have slept most of the way to Sheffield.

If Adkin's radio interviews are anything to go by, he only made one single point in that hour😁

Never heard anyone labour a point for as long as he did.
