Have appointed Russ Wilcox until the end of the season. I don't think too many Scunny fans will be happy with that.

As an aside, I didn't know that Kevin Pressman was at Scunny.

Desperate times for a club with no money.



Supporting the Mighty Mariners for over 30 years, home town club is were the heart and soul is and it's great to be a part of it.

It's a bit of an ongoing cycle down the 180 isn't it?

Appoint relatively high profile manager - doesn't work- sack manager - appoint internally - it doesn't work - sack manager - appoint relatively high profile manager.....

The constant thread is the lack of time given to any manager, even in the modern game their turnover is horrendous.  

Regardless of your views on Hurst, personally he wasn't my cup of tea in terms of his style, but he's definitely one for bringing a bit of stability and shoring things up.  It's stability that Scunny quite clearly needed, especially if it's true about the budget getting slashed.  

Not sure quite what Swann expects to happen but it definitely isn't working.  I get the impression that he believes that because he's spunked so much money up the wall previously, there's a god given right for success now.

They will be non league within two seasons , it looks to me like Swann has lost interest can’t wait to gloat like they did when we went out of the league

Yeah, I went with a mate to the Scunny match who works for one of the sponsors and Pressman was in McMenemy's before the match.

Regarding Wilcox, it sounds like quite a few Scunny fans wanted him in until the end of the season going off RH messages.

I think this is unlikely, I wouldn't get our hopes up.  They're not our cup of tea at all, of course, but I don't think they're THAT sh#t.  Be interesting to see what the future holds for them though.  The new stadium never happened, then the regeneration of Glanford Park didn't happen either.  Their future is maybe even more unpredictable than our own, for once.

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

I agree with you on Hurst, he could have done well there if given several full seasons.  Not sure what he would have done about the lowering of the playing budget, which was always inevitable, but he does have a good eye for non-league players who are good enough for the league.

I'm delighted we got Holloway, he was my No. 1 choice but deep down I assumed he was beyond us, but I don't mind admitting that Hurst would have been right up there on my list.  Mind you, there are PLENTY on here who don't agree with me on that.

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