There's been some chatter about whether or not Robinson has been getting what's there out of shit players, or whether he's massively failed to get the best out of decent players.

We'll soon learn. If Dummigan is anything to go by we may be in for better fortunes.

Embargoed Press announcement. Come on, this happens all the time, in all fields, not just us. It's how thy sell papers.
You should always have a replacement lined up. Given our predicament and how Evans changed his mind, I'll be very disapointed if we didn't have anyone lined up.
We won't announce a replacement today though, so that it cannot be proved we had.

Glad it was just done in one hit.

i think (with only a few exceptions) the squad is generally shit, but I will still be amazed if Sheridan doesn't get more out of them than Robinson did.

 

Good luck to him, he gave it a go but it didn't work.

Whilst Robbo was no doubt dealt an extremely poor hand he did play it very badly.

Not just the results but the poor performances more than anything.

 

Football based on the NI ethos doesn't work in the football league.

2 games in hand against MK and Peterborough.
 
We may have been worse off in the league last year but we had better players.


Exactly.We are in the shit and will be difficult to turn Robinsons disasterous record round.By far the worst manager ever and both clueless and deluded.Good riddence.Can't wish him well.

Wish Robbo all the best - he's conducted himself with dignity throughout.

 

He was given a crap hand, but no one can deny we were going down without a change.

Seems from rumours administration is on the cards with points deducted leading inevitably to Division 2 and a low budget next season.
Might as well let TP run the first team with a promise his youth team coach job is safe next season no matter what.

 

?????....... well that would be the strangest thing ever! We are a) insolvent or B) a floating charge holder is about to appoint an Administrator....... so let's shell out a shed load of money to pay off a dismissed manager, appoint a new one, more than likely sign some new players....... to then go into Administration.

 

If there is one thing today should surely teach us, it's to ignore unfounded rumours from dubious sources.

You can ask SC then if it's definitely ruled out.

Feel sorry for Robbo but ultimately it was his tactics on the pitch and bizarre decisions which mean it needed to happen.

Wigan at home showed the system we needed and he tinkered.

So, do we think he would've been sacked regardless of beating Mansfield?

Yes, It would just have been after we lost to Gillingham instead.

Speed of the appointment suggests so.

We'll hear he's staying until the end of the season which in my view is a mistake. Complete fresh eyes and ideas needed...
