Well someone has to ask the question, and I’m not trying to be divisive or trolling but what happens if Artell does get fired before the end of the season?

From what I’ve seen of 1878 it’s still a big “if” and I suspect they’ll stick with him regardless of the consequences.

Has to be Shaun and Ben to the end of the season. Then decide in the summer. They know the players, have been privvy to every discussion and have already done a good job in a transition period. The last thing we want is a third voice going down a different path.

I guess you have to give him time, I suppose. But I have to admit it’s a really hard watch at the moment. If we’re going to continue playing out from the back, then the players have to be competent to do this and some I’m not sure that they are.
If we can get a couple of wins this week, then the whole outlook is much better.

Shaun and Ben are the best chance we have of staying up now. We saw them starting to put the foundations in place for stability and we should go back to that.

Its clear you haven't rated Artell for a while now Rob. How many points does he need to win over the next 7 days to keep himself in a job ?

Personally I would sack him today and be organising it right now. But given that it won't happen I would only be happy with 3 or 4 points. I suspect he will be sacked after Doncaster, as was Hurst.

I fear that they will stick with him as it will be so expensive to get rid having handed him a 2.5 year deal. I assume there is a break clause that means we can get rid for nothing if he takes us down but for that to happen obviously the worst possible outcome has to happen.
Just maybe there is a clause that is in our favour to get rid of certain targets aren't reached or something that can trigger a sacking for little cost during the early few months, but I think that's highly unlikely.

The only thing I can think that might trigger it is complete capitulation, two defeats next week, such that they have to act. The body language of the players is awful already, they've got eyes like the rest of us. It will mean a much reduced budget next season tho as the conte money will just go to pay off Artell I guess.

I’d love to know just why all of a sudden Pearson is the answer. Finished playing just last season and was only hired in a scouting role by Hurst if I remember rightly? And then since Hurst left he’s been part of the coaching set up.

If anything I think it’s quite criminal that Artell hasn’t brought in an assistant.

I think 2 draws will be enough to keep his head above water with the owners for the time being. Whether it's enough to keep our heads above water depends on what the bottom 2 do I suppose.
