Frankie was a solid appointment slated by some on here. He was treated like a sack of shit. Disgraceful. Don't treat a hero like that, especially after a few months. He was doing okay. He was bui

And people are still prepared to debate the merits of managers on here and reckon all our problems will go away if Kewell ends up being the next fall guy    Kewell will go as a last resort an

Every manager we’ve ever had, good and bad, makes decisions that baffle us, that make no sense on paper.   The number of times i’d lose my shit about some decision Joe Royle made is absolute

Think it’s safe to say that the little “slowly slowly” good will AL has cultivated of late would be well and truly lost if he pulled the trigger on yet another manager - his top choice and not even doing too badly.

 

id say not even he would be so stupid but then again he has Shitpeas as a top advisor and that toilet certainly is

Well since beating Bradford at home on Dec 15th....a long month ago...we have lost easily at home to Harrogate, Walsall and Mansfield, are out of the FA Cup, have conceded 14 goals in 6 games, and are only 7 pts off Grimsby in the relegation spots....

With our next 4 games against teams currently 2nd, 5th, 6th and 11th wouldn't surprise me in the least if Harry's gone by 1st Feb.

Needs 6 pts I recon to release some pressure.

Our home performances this season have dropped to a new level....7 points from a possible 36 and just 2 wins in 12 is about as bad as I have ever seen. 

 

The quality in this piss poor league is truly shocking and unbelievably, turning just 4 of our home loses into victories and giving us what would still be a barely average home record would see us joint top!

 

As bad as we are, the right signings, in the right areas, could see us advance into the playoff positions at the very least!

He's just luck the home fans haven't been allowed at Boundary Park, they'd be after blood and rightly so

we still got outside chance of play offs keep him end season the see what happens

I don't think anyone is calling for his head, we need stability and take it from there. A couple of solid midfielders, one with a bit of nous, stick young Alfie alongside them who will be a better player for it. The play offs ain't going to happen, let's make sure we don't get drawn into a relegation dogfight.

The 5-6 teams directly above us are probably thinking the same thing and I know which ones I'd fancy to get it right.

 

Our focus should be solely on securing the 15-20 points we need to ensure league status.

This is my thinking, let's get to 50 points or stay out of the bottom 2 when they call a halt to the season again.

That's the sensible plan, so we can probably assume it won't happen. I shall therefore withdraw into Very Worried mode.

The link below is from today's Melbourne Age with Kewell trying to drum up Aussie footballers to go to Europe. Will any turn up at Boundary Park? (I doubt it).

On the other hand maybe it’s better just to get to 50 points ASAP. Stevenage, Barrow & Grimsby all have very winnable games today. If that happens and we lose, the gap to the relegation places will be down to 3 points!!

I'm at a stage where I don't feel strongly enough to demand his sacking, but I certainly wouldn't lose any sleep if he went...

 

The football is more entertaining than last season and for that reason alone I think he's taken us forwards (that really is starting from a very low base of course).

 

That will only last so long though.  I think it's in club's best interests to give a manager more than a year to develop the team rather than scrap it and start again, but there needs to further signs of improvement in the next year.

Either way he won't really get the chance to develop a team as it will yet again be almost an entirely new one next time round anyway

He needs to play a settled team in their correct positions.

Too much tinkering, even Bahamboula is being messed about and looks fed up of it.
