Title: Managerial Migrations 2016-2017, the tragic roundabout
Post by: Batch on Thursday, August 25, 2011, 19:05:59
Peter Jackson has "resigned" as Bradford manager following their loss to D&R. 4 games in - the world had gone mad(er).

In other news, Mike Phelan must be fearing the worst after Fergie has ended his war with the BBC and will now allow them to interview him.

Nor can the 'Wally with the brolly' MacClaren. Currently 4-1 down at home to West Ham.

We are on a downward spiral....and presently there is no sign of where it might bottom out, it's worth noting that of the 4 sides to beat us this season, they've all recently spent time in the Conference, so I don't think there's any reason why we're too good to end up there, if we can't compete with these sides.

I'm sure Grimsby fans, who historically are a much bigger club than us, must scratch their heads, or more likely arses being norvern , and wonder what combination of poor board room decisions and managerial incompetence led them to their present status in the lower reaches of the Conference.

Grimsby in the heady days were a division one team in the late 20,s and early thirties...they got to two semi finals of the cup in these heady days.....the 76000 at old Trafford was a record for many years.
Grimsby fans would argue they as big as us if not bigger,i would say they were bigger but not any more.
I would argue that we have won a major trophy and they havn't....but it is true to say they are similar to us in the fact they have a large catchment area,incidently Grimsby do not actually play in Grimsby and the ground is a few miles down the road in Cleethorpes.
The difference these days is obvious really,Swindon is a relatively booming Town/area with rapid growth in industry and housing where as Grimsby is an area in decline with the fishing industry only half the size it once was.
So Reg is right to a degree.

12 top flight seasons compared to our one with a best finish of 5th.  32 second tier seasons compared to our 16. Grimsby were in the second tier as recently as 2003, more recently than us, but then started on a downward spiral, which they've yet to turn around, like us.

I'm not sure how much of a factor the local economy is on a football club....you could probably look at any number of norvern shit holes, which have been in economic decline for years, that are doing way better than us....Bolton/Blackburn/Accrington/Burnley spring to mind.

We had one of our best eras...early to late 60's when the Town's principal industry was in terminal decline.

I'm not saying it's true, but there are countless examples of top players failing as managers.

Many of them just can't accept that their players can't do the things that they themselves found easy and get frustrated by this.

If I'm being totally honest, the very things I liked about PdC are now beginning to worry me, the biggest one is his constant talk of heart and desire. Of course they're important, but you need tactical nous even more and some of his substitutions are, quite frankly, baffling.

His hard line over players is another worry. The manager has to be in control of his players for sure, but disagreements happen in all workplaces. If you disagreed with your boss and from then on he completely ignored you, or tried to transfer you to another department, what would you think of his man management skills?

It's still early days and he's on a steep learning curve. The concern is, will he accept it when he's wrong and learn from these mistakes?

I hope he will, but I'm beginning to get a bit concerned that his ego won't let him admit to any weaknesses in himself and that could prove his (And ours) downfall.

It's inevitable with the start we've had that rumours will start.
The number of opposition fans (and some of our own maybe) that seem to be willing PDC to fail and in some cases assuming it inevitable that he would, makes it an obvious trail of false logic to say to conclude that he's now on his way out.
For example see the Shrewsbury fans chanting "You're getting sacked in the morning."  I can't believe they have some inside knowledge on this but its an opinion that was aired at the weekend!

PdC was a massive risk but no more than others at the stage we were at when he was employed. Any manager we had would have had to start the squad all over again and I'd like to think "better" players have come because of him.

The only thing for me with him is that he is learning how to fit a team together as well as learning to manage people and the two apparently aren't fitting together very well at the moment. With an experienced head the management side should have at least been covered.

I think there's a little mischief-making going on.  Understandable that conspiracy theorists are going to start up the 'rumours' at this stage, I suppose.  A run of 4 straight defeats in the League (especially this league) is not great - but all 4 defeats have been by a single goal margin.  If we followed this run up with several straight wins, I don't think that would be much of surprise either.

I think we're going to come good quite soon.  If we started threatening the club record 8 consecutive league defeats (from Aug-Oct 2005), PDC might want to start looking over his shoulder.  But it won't come to that.

To put some context on our current plight....John Trollope lost 5 in a row in Div 4....sacked.  Ken Beamish lost 4 in row in Div 4......producing lowest CG post war attendance for game 5....sacked within the month.  Bob Smith in Div 3 lost first 5....sacked.  Of he aforementioned 8 in a row, Kingy managed 5 of these and was sacked.

So di Canio is entering dangerous territory....conventional wisdom suggests that you need something in the bank to get you through such a run....di Canio has the win at Bristol, which is decent currency, but could be devalued by a dismal showing tomorrow.

I'm not sure how relevant it is that we're only losing games by a single goal. They're still being lost and just like last season we haven't been able to win after going behind and Saturday showed we can't hold on after being in front. We lost numerous games last season by 1 goal as well
and saw games of two halves.  The parallels are uncanny and worrying.

PDC won't be sacked, as the compensation would be too much plus who would want to take on all these foreign players with no exeperience of lower league football.  I can't see him walking, as that would be seen as failure and he'd struggle to get another managerial job.

What has changed is my belief that di Canio is able to get the best out of them week in, week out. I'm also starting to think that maybe he lets his heart rule his head too much.

I'm not saying he won't be a success, but I'm starting to have doubts about him.

This.

WTF would any true Swindon fan want even more turmoil at this stage of the season its fucking madness, PdC has signed up for 2 years, I see him staying for that time and with us improving on the pitch much more, I know not everyone likes him, Spencer, Reg etc etc but surely the club needs no more changes of management in the near future, that will be madness.

Look at the other candidates that some fans wanted ahead of PdC.
Buckle at Wovers, 10th in the league, hugely inconsistant, 1 bad home defeat to Torquay.
Rosler at Brentford, 7th in the league, 3 good wins, 3 bad defeats including 1 at home.
Hamann at Stockport, 11th in the Conference, 2 win all season.

Were they THAT much better candidates than PdC? doesn't look like they were so far does it?

But when PdC took over we couldnt have had many more players, Stockport have only won 1 game where we have won 2 (yes 1 was in the LC) and Stockport are a division lower than us.

I would have expected (!) us to have got better results than them had we played Forest Green, Kettering, Ebbsfleet, Kidderminster and Lincoln, where as we have played against Crewe, Cheltenham, Daggers, Oxford, Shitty and Shrewsbury, a much tougher list of opposition.

With all due respect MM, I think you have missed the point.We have lost 4 league games in a row, whereas Stockport have yet to loose.Hamman has had the same task as Di Cannio, namely to assemble a new squad, and to get them to play as a team.The opposition is relative to the league you are in.An unbeaten start to the season suggests Hamman is doing a far better job than Di Cannio of getting his players to gel, and his (Hamman's) circumstances were every bit as challenging as Di Cannios, if not harder.

Bollocks. I was talking about the performance against Oxford, not di Canio's man management skills, or tactical nous.

I still think the players are good enough and I still think that if PdC can merge his passion with a bit of logic he'll be successful.

But anyone that doesn't have even a little bit of concern after Shrewsbury isn't the full packet.

WTF would any true Swindon fan want even more turmoil at this stage of the season its fucking madness, PdC has signed up for 2 years, I see him staying for that time and with us improving on the pitch much more, I know not everyone likes him, Spencer, Reg etc etc but surely the club needs no more changes of management in the near future, that will be madness.


I do like him, and Its not a case of wanting him out.

But I think he gaffed majorly on saturday, looked like the pressure got to him, and if he cant take it then he needs to consider his position. Considering we are L2 he has got some fine players to work with, if their best still isnt good enough, and makes him miserable and angry then he should resign.

He needs to be more constructive in his criticism. He's been allowed to sign loads of players and commit a lot of money to wages. Id say more than any other manager in the last 15 years. This is what youve got to work with Paolo, you need to show your worth now and manage them or fuck off.

With all due respect MM, I think you have missed the point.We have lost 4 league games in a row, whereas Stockport have yet to loose.Hamman has had the same task as Di Cannio, namely to assemble a new squad, and to get them to play as a team.The opposition is relative to the league you are in.An unbeaten start to the season suggests Hamman is doing a far better job than Di Cannio of getting his players to gel, and his (Hamman's) circumstances were every bit as challenging as Di Cannios, if not harder.

No I fully understand the point Danny, the thing is that I am saying would we have done any better with the managers that WERE linked with us before PdC got the job, personally I don't think we would have done any better, juding by the results they have so far achieved. The candidates were no better than PdC and the results they have got are showing that, IMO.

I think we need to stick with PdC and stop this managerial merry go round that we have had in recent seasons, stop the changing manager just because we have lost a few games and not have a knee jerk reaction to current results by simply removing the manager when I feel we are not far from having a winning side.

Lets face it we arent being thrashed by anyone ATM, they are all close games with 1 goal defeats usually caused by a single individuals error, which is expected at this level because players here will make an error otherwise they would be playing at a far higher level.

Bollocks. I was talking about the performance against Oxford, not di Canio's man management skills, or tactical nous.

I still think the players are good enough and I still think that if PdC can merge his passion with a bit of logic he'll be successful.

But anyone that doesn't have even a little bit of concern after Shrewsbury isn't the full packet.



Well i am not the full packet then,maybe around Xmas time i will be a little concerned if we are not getting regular wins.
Love the bloke,his passion his honesty is refreshing,how any sane person can cane a manager who has no experience at all is beyond me,he has an almost brand new squad to mould together and lets be fair with maybe the exception of Ferry inherited no real quality in my view.
We havn't been hammered and lets be fair the Oxford result was a travesty.

Onwards and upwards begining tomorow v Southampton...........UP THE TOWN.

Fair enough MM, wasn't trying to wind anyone up at all.I've always thought appointing PDC was a mistake, would have most definately have gone for Peter Taylor as manager.Not keen on the give it till Christmas approach either, unless there are some signs in the next few weeks that we are at least steadying the ship PDC should go.If we leave it till Christmas we may well be where we were last season, having made a change too late for any one coming in to save us from going down.We weren't generally being thrashed last year either, the greater majority of the defeats were one goal losses. The signs just now are worrying to say the least.

I'm hoping we'll stick with Di Canio, he's a rookie manager with a lot to learn - I hope he learns it here. As I thought we'd finish somewhere in the top ten, maybe get to the playoffs, our form is not really much of a surprise.

A few of my mates are saying that he should be sacked now - "to save our season" apparently. But they both thought that we'd win the first twenty games and be promoted by xmas, an opinion based on nothing. So I think the massive disappointment of our current predicament is skewing their viewpoints.

My fear is that PDC is an emotional character and may just explode and walk-out if we don't win soon....

Far too early for any of that talk. If things are the same at Christmas then he'll be gone. The club won't make the same mistake as with Wilson last season.

Its still not obvious to me the squad is massively crap. I think the signs are encouraging at times, but we need to turn that into performances and results. PDC does worry me. He could yet turn out to be a genius, its the stories of him flipping out, the way some players have been treated that worries me. Could all be internet mischief making rather than hard fact*

What is clear is a couple of league wins and we'll all be happy again!

The good news is we've managed to get rid of the chairman, albeit he owns the club, but if you believe the stories in the press then we're finally up for sale after 12 years of abject failure, so as soon as he sells up and takes his slimy CEO with him then finally things might just change for the better at Forest!

I can't comment on the O'Hare situation, but whilst I was only born in 1977 a lot of the older Forest fans I speak to certainly say that there was a mindless minority that got on McGovern's back quite a lot.  I think it just boils down to the sort of player McGovern was, he was the anchorman in midfield, the player that "got the ball and passed it somebody better than him in the same coloured shirt", to paraphrase Clough.

That certainly was his job, unfortunately there's a myth in football that as soon as you get the ball you pass it forwards, which is not what the role of a defensive midfielder is.  Still, I bet many of those were eating their words in 1979 and 1980 when he lifted a certain trophy twice!

It is a tad worrying, however, our local rag has said Hart isn't coming (he was only going to be a technical director anyway), and an Irish paper has said Keane won't go to a club with no money or ambition, so that rules us out, and as for Pemberton, he was briefly our reserve coach and stepped in as caretaker in December 2008 when Calderwood got sacked and before Billy stepped in, and other than the fact he got us a 3-2 win at Norwich and a 3-0 win at Man City in the FA Cup, I can't really say I want him either.

The problem is nobody stands out, the fans with an ounce of sense want Billy (as do the players as a couple of our senior squad have approached our local BBC station and said so), and the fans with no sense of realism want O'Neill or Pearce.

Personally, I'd take a gamble on Lee Clark at Huddersfield, knows the lower leagues and whilst not getting Huddersfield up yet seems very highly rated, only stepping stone is that we now can't afford him!

Correct on all points Reg.

Shitty do look at themselves as a much bigger club than they actually are anyway. And ANY manager can work miracles at ANY club it just depends a lot on whos there, who reacts to what and how and also a lot of luck, some great managers have done shit at some clubs and visa versa.

Seems a bit of a rash decision - if they'd beaten Millwall they'd currently be 4th and just two points off second. You've only got to look at Forest to see the risk in sacking a manager who only makes the top 6 and not the top 2.

Paul Buckle on the verge of leaving Rovers, loads of rumours from my Rovers supporting mates that hes not been at the club for 2 days, don't know if would be the sack but they havent had a good start and a 3-0 home defeat Tuesday was the icing on the cake.

Looks like we dodged a bullet with Buckle.

Oh and huge amounts of unrest behind the scenes with players wanting to leave like ex Swindon target Campbell.

Amazing how sentiment can turn so quickly.  At the start of the season:

  • We had missed a real opportunity by letting Rovers get to him first.
  • Buckle had signed great players for Rovers within weeks of getting there, with all the right experience.
  • Rovers were going to lead the charge in the division.

He was the safe option vs our riskier approach with PDC.  I won't go looking for posts, but I'm sure it's all there.  All guesswork, really, isn't it.

Not sure that because a manager fails at one club it necessarily means he'll fail at another...take Johnson at Cobblers, loads on here saw him as the man to take over from Wilson...very reasonable previous record, but a dire time with Northampton.  Think sometimes it's a case of being at the right club at the right time.

Wilson has shown he's not completely useless, over many years, yet managed to produce just about our worst side in living memory....I suppose for him it was a case of wrong time....with player losses and sales, undermining his previous good work.

That is very true Reg, every manager can work miracles and can also be the devil incarnate at every club, it depends on so many factors and a lot of luck.

Buckle was never in my top 4 for the job at Swindon but I know he came close to signing for us, I think that he would have signed pretty much the same players with us as he has signed at Rovers, similar wage structure I would imagine as they have there, and pretty much all of his new signings have been inefectual.

I personally am still glad we chose PdC over him and all the other candidates though as they have all had fairly poor starts at their new clubs.

I was in 2 minds on Buckle. He sounded alright but nothing special. I'd have preferred Tisdale. Anyhow it seems the likes of Buckle and Johnson were not highly rated at Torquay or Posh in their previous respective jobs so maybe they are not as good as people suggest. Their recent records would prove that.

I was happy with PDC. It was something new, fresh and exciting and at the moment it seems to be coming together quite nicely.

Rovers went with a lower league up-and-coming manager who possibly over achieved with Torquay (in the FL) and he then went on to sign a lot of known but ultimately mediocre players.

This is what can happen when  you don't take risks.

He had pretty good resources for a BSP club, signed McConville on decent money and tried signing Ryan Lowe. Think its just a really hard league to manage and takes alot of experience to manage, in a league like league 1 he may of done a mcuh better job.

McConville was a free transfer before the failed takeover. There's plenty of clubs who can offer higher wages than poor Accrington Stanley.

Stockport is rife players people many would have heard off but are in-truth quite mediocre.

Hamann probably had assistance similar to what Di Canio received when he first arrived at Town. Fortunately, it's working out better for us at the moment.

I know PL clubs don't take the League Cup too seriously but Blackburn losing away at Cardiff and Chelsea losing at home to Liverpool won't help their managers chances of staying in jobs much.

I reckon going out of the CL and a continued poor run of form in the PL will see Villas-Boas gone come the end of the year. If he does go he will have cost Chelsea £35m for six months. Bargain.

That proved to me that Buckle seems a nice bloke, but appears to be winging it a bit as a manager. How an interviewer can break it to a manager that in the next game a key player for the opponent is absent is unbelievable.

It also indicated we have a superb manager, because nothing, however insignificant, would ever be missed by Paolo. Like this weekend, when in a post match interview one of the players said the game had panned out exactly as PDC had told them it would (pre-match) so they were never worried about the way the first half was going.

How I laugh  - my friend who supports Rovers said at the start of the season Buckle was class, and the appointment of Di Canio was a joke. He said he would wave on the way up. I'm the one doing the waving now...of the two fingered variety

I seem to remember some people on here saying Di Canio was a bad choice and Buckle was a far better option.

He was on the brink of the Play-Off places when he left Peterborough. Perhaps not their target but hardly "total dog shit".

PDC is in a position with us to set up long term managerial success.  Many clubs rely on managers to come and do a job without changing their internal culture.  The likes of Man Utd rely their culture, methods, ethos, training day to day operation are in place and players know that with Fergie they ain't going to rule the roost - few managers achieve this and this in the main (along with a decent pot of money) has ensured Fergie remains a successful boss - I doubt when he leaves they will continue being as successful or as feared - look at Liverpool;  Unbeatable under Shankley but since Paisley they have struggled.

PDC has done the hard work here.  He's cleared the crap out of the cupboard, laid down the standards, changed the culture, won the fans over and is on the verge of completing the double. 

Yes, it's lower league but we have the strongest foundation of a club built on real funds, without fraud and without the fear that we will go under.  PDC gets on well with Wray and the respect is mutual.  Even if he went to West Ham I doubt he would receive the same backing through times like the Clarke incident and so any move, whilst it may pay more, wouldn't necessarily mean he can manage in the way he has done here.





I am realistic and know it is likely that at some point he will move on but we can all live in hope that in 5 years time he will still be here and leading the Town out for a top of the table clash at Old Trafford.

I look at it more in terms of achievement.  If (big if) PDC manages to get us promoted this season - and then leaves - he would go down in STFC history as the man who took us back to League 1 at the first time of asking.  Impressive, but hardly the stuff of legend.  Sturrock did precisely this 5 years ago and he is well remembered for it, but he would struggle to make it in to the managerial 'hall of fame'.

Now suppose PDC takes us up, and then takes us up again.  He would then be the manager who had taken us to the 2nd tier for the first time in over a decade.  He would have emulated Macari and would rightly be remembered is much the same way.  Having laid all the ground work, as @MacPhlea says, I would hope that this is what PDC is aiming for.  And with the right backing from the board, which appears to be there, we could potentially be in with a shout.

This is the bit that excites me.  Getting back in to League 1 kind of gets us back to where we started before the horror of the 2010/11 season...which should never have happened.  It's what happens when we (hopefully) push on from there that will define PDC's legacy.

EDIT:  I meant to finish off by saying that if PDC does ever get us up to Championship level again, I would then understand completely if he moved on at that point.  He would have a tangible achievement to reflect on with us, and would rightly be thinking about the next phase of his career.  I don't think there would be much of an incentive to stay with us much beyond that point.

I agree with most of that Ardiles. This is more than a 'job' with PDC, it is a long term project. One in which he has had fantastic backing and as far as I can tell, complete autonomy. There are very few other clubs, if any who could offer this. Yes, I guess he will move on at some point, there are very few managers who don't (Gradi and Ferguson being about the only examples). But both he and Jeremy Wray have proved to me to be men of their word. Di Canio has also, in the past, proved himself to be very loyal and not solely motivated by money, the best example of this being when he turned down Man Utd to stay at West Ham.

I don't see him going anywhere in the foreseeable future but as has been said, we're going to have to get used to him being 'linked' (whatever that actually means) with just about every vacancy going as we did with Macari.

Just a couple of small points I would take issue with. I wouldn't say promotion is a 'big' if at all to be fair. I will be very, very surprised if we don't get promoted. Also, if Di Canio got us to the Championship, why would he not then think about getting us into the Premier League? Especially when clubs like Wigan, Swansea, Hull, Stoke, Burnley and Blackpool have got there (albeit with varying degrees of success)

Di Canio isn't 'anyone else' though and the 'right offer' would have to be an extremely good one in my ever so humble opinion. As you say though, we're all just guessing and I am indeed enjoying it immensely while it lasts. We had about 5 years of speculation with Macari and he very nearly went to Chelsea about a year before  he finally went to West Ham. Long may it continue.

Having read the last 6 or so posts allow me to add to the speculation because that's all it is, none of us know the minutiae of the relationship between Paolo, Jeremey, his contract and the club as a whole including us fans.

The key words are loyalty and potential. Now we all know (or should) his past history with WHU as a player. I'd like to push into the arena that this given time and success here, pale into insignificance that of which he is and will build up with us going forward.

Look into the Future. As a club we now have the ingredients to to propel us to the premiership, anyone disagree?

In case the answer is yes or what are they I'll list my key ingredients...

1) Money 2) Aspirations 3) A hungry Manager. 4) Huge potential on all levels

The man come across as being fiercely loyal above all else. He went to the board and admitted he had got things wrong, stated what he needed to put it right and asked the board to sack him if they felt he was not the man they thought they had or that he could not deliver what he said he would. Back me or sack me. Well we know the story so far and you would be a brave man or woman to bet against us going up. I'll tell you this too, we're going up next season as well.

I honestly can see us in five years time being either top of the pile in the championship pushing for promotion to the premier league or already there with an almost new stadium for good measure.

Shit from China (far fetched), maybe but this man is like a virulent disease once you get a sniff you're hooked. I had a business meeting in between the Southampton and Rotherham games in September. I was asked by most of my fellow football supporting colleagues if we had made a monumental mistake in appointing Paolo. My response? No, no, no. I put them straight. "Come the second half of the season we'll be up there challenging for the top spot".

We had our annual conference Wednesday/Thursday this week. I could not hide my joy in the wetherspoons pub in Chester the night before when my Blackberry bleeped and my wife had told me the fourth goal went in. I felt so, so proud to be a supporter of STFC. The next two days at the conference including the Gala (black tie) dinner the following night, my shit eating grin was all that was needed to remind everyone of that meeting in September when the conversation turned to footballing matters. Oh it's so lovely being a town fan at the moment and long may it continue.

Paolo, it's Paolo is here for the long haul. He has the potential to be a Cloughie here and mark my words he has a point to prove to many people in football.

He's proved it here already though as the man's obsessed he'll carry on.

Shout for me on Tuesday please, I'll be in pub in Petersfield giving it large with my shirt on.

I first read that as wash your mouth out, and and am now disappointed. Reason being, it meant I could have used the cunning reply I used to use at Sunday school (and primary school) for being told they'll wash my mouth out with soap and water: So what, I like the taste of soap.

You do know that aint right don't you Barry!

On the Clark thing....I am really a bit shocked at the timing of this, yes they got beaten at home last night but that was only their 3rd league defeat of the season and they went on that record (for them) run of 43 games unbeaten.

I think there must be more to it than that they have just lost their patience with him.

Lee Clark wants to go to Leeds United so Huddersfield go and fire him thus allowing him to join for free instead of demanding a compensation package that Ken Bates would be unwilling to pay?

Unless the Huddersfield chairman is as thick as two short planks, I don't think so.

But if Clark breached his contract with Udders they could sack him without paying him off which may of been a better option financially than what they may of got from Leeds. Having said that this afternoon Clark was only third favourite to get the Leeds job so could be totally irrelevant.

I would have thought that Clarke would be a big risk for Leeds?  As previously mentioned, he's had a lot of money at his disposal and failed to take Huddersfield anywhere.  They want a manager to get them back to the Premier League and the pressure at Leeds will be far more than anything he was under at Huddersfield.  I can't see him being the man for the job.

And on a separate managerial matter, Arsenal need to get rid of Wenger.  As good as a manager he was, he's lost it completely at Arsenal now.  Is it 8 years now since they won anything?  It'll be another 8 with him in charge.

I think last time round Leeds fans were expecting a big named manager but the board seem happy to go with lesser experienced ones. The majority of Huddersfield fans were in a right panic not so long ago when Clark was linked to Leicester ? And I'm sure back then during their great unbeaten run the Udders board would of offered Clark a substantial amount to keep him. That's what makes his sacking strange.

Clark hasn't done a very good job there though. He took over when they were 6th in Lge 1 so he's taken them nowhere in 3 years having spent a shed load of money. With their squad they should be looking for better than the playoffs so after 2 failures in the final I can see why they got rid.

People go on about his record of something like losing 3 in the last 54 games but surely a team with that record shouldn't be 12 points off top having played a game more. Too many draws can be a bad thing. That squad should have been in the Championship long ago.

Not sure it's got anything to do with the Leeds job.

Bruce was asked about it on MOTD2 the other week, he said he had applied but didn't get the job.
Apparently they have had a rethink and looks like he may well be appointed this week according to some Wolves forums.

It's win/win for Allen. If guides them clear of danger and he's a self-proclaimed messiah or he sends them down and it's not his fault. Either way, Martin Allen keeps treating Barnet badly but they keep going back for more.

Also, Lawrie Sanchez' coaching performance at the County Ground (4-0 win) was, visually, the worst I've witnessed. He couldn't give a damn that day.

Also, I'm yet to experience the 'new improved better' Barnet that several Bees fans were going on about earlier in the year.

Martin Allen comes across as a one trick pony. Once the players get used to his ways, they are back to square one. (i.e. being shit)

He may have kept us up last season (although by no means certain), but in a likelihood we would now be heading towards League 2.

Indeed, that does depend on whether he feels he has taken Brighton as far as he thinks he can. Villa is a massive club with a huge fanbase, but, and its a big but......he would have to work with Randy Learner and he has never been too patient with managers.

I don't think nearly 34k average is bad considering they were fighting against relegation. Especially when Spurs only averaged an extra 2k and finished 4th and that really is a huge city.

Based on silverware? Then yes. Footballing wise? Nope. I think the latter is most important long term. The Carling Cup will only be used by Liverpool fans to berate Manchester United and their Community Shield win.

4th place in the league is a bigger prize than the F.A. and League Cup, which is a great shame.

4th place in the league is a bigger prize than the F.A. and League Cup, which is a great shame.

Agreed. Saying that, the FA could award a Champions League spot to the FA Cup winners. The the big clubs would take it serioiusly.

It's a joke when the competition is called the 'Champions League', that you don't have to win anything to be in it !!!

Cannot understand the decision. Apparently Levy seems to like the 'DoF'/Sporting Director role, which has never worked over here, and Harry likes to wheel and deal himself. Also it has been noticable that Spurs' results in the last two seasons have taken a severe downturn in the second half of the season, which have cost them CL places.

Here's an outside bet...Gus Poyet. He was Ramos' assistant a few years ago, and he's done well at Brighton.

I'd like to see Glenn back in football.  I have a probably misguided belief that he is a genius manager who is just misunderstood. 

The truth is probably more likely that he took us up by inheriting a good team, adding to it and being brilliant on the pitch himself.  England in 1998 I think I have a rose-tinted memory of how good we were.

Still, it would be nice to see him back.

I remember they were gobsmacked last season when we beat them so easily at the CG - one said he never thought a team in League 2 could beat them twice so easily. Spose he must have wiped the 6-0 thrashing at Morecombe from his memory.

Crawley are no different to the rest of us lower leaguers in the sense that if you employ someone who is 'above' you then there's a risk that they will bugger off at the best opportunity (Hoddle, Sturrock, Wise etc). Luckily our current boss is well into Swindon Town at the moment.

Looks like Richie Barker is now going to be Creepy's new manager, a bit of a sideways or even step down from Bury. I expect its down to playing budget which at Creepy may well be higher than at Bury.

I do think that Creepy wont be able to attract the type of player needed in this league though as crowds of 3k is unsustainable if you are paying out reasonably high wages with the 55% wage cap in place even though there are obviously ways around this with sponsorship deals etc which is how Notts County and Peterborough exceeded it in the past.

Richie Barker confirmed as Creepy boss now.

http://www.crawleytownfc.com/news/article/richie-barker-296214.aspx

Quote
The club are delighted to confirm that Richie Barker has accepted the position of first-team manager.
Richie has joined the club from Bury after the clubs agreed a compensation deal and he has signed a two-year contract.
Richie, 37, moved into management in July 2010 when he was appointed Head of Youth and reserve-team boss at Bury but in the two years since then he has earned a reputation as one of the brightest and most forward-thinking managers in the Football League.
He became caretaker-boss at Gigg Lane in April 2011 and guided Bury to six straight league wins to secure promotion to League One. The position was made permanent in June 2011 and last season Bury finished in a comfortable mid-table position.
Richie’s playing career started at Sheffield Wednesday in 1993. Over the next 16 seasons he played as a striker for nine different clubs including 96 games for Brighton & Hove Albion between 1997 and 1999. His family home remains in Sussex.
Richie said: "It was certainly not a hard decision to come to Crawley, although it was difficult to leave Bury because I built up quite an affinity with the people there and they are a smashing club.
"But this is a fantastic opportunity for me. Crawley Town are a club on the up as their success in the last two years shows.
"There is only a week to go before the season starts so we have to hit the ground running but I am looking forward to working with the players and staff.
"League 1 is a big step up but Stevenage came through like Crawley did and reached the play-offs last season so it is possible for a promoted club to be successful. This is a great challenge for me in my managerial career and I am delighted to be here."
Director of Football Steve Coppell said: “The club had to take stock after Sean O’Driscoll’s departure. We are about to start our first season in League 1 and needed a manager with experience at this level and someone with the right credentials and an ambition which matched that of Crawley Town.
“We are delighted Richie has agreed to take up the challenge. We are at a relatively young stage of our development as a Football League club and Richie is an excellent fit for this football club.
“In the last couple of years he has earned an excellent reputation in management and his coaching CV is second to none. He is a fully-qualified UEFA A License coach and has a degree in sports science.
“He has had a very good grounding in management at Bury and we are sure he will inspire both our players and our supporters as we embark on the next stage of the club’s development in League 1.
“Richie has his transfer targets and we will be working hard in the next few days and weeks to strengthen the squad.”
Richie will take charge for the first time on Friday when we play Brighton & Hove Albion in our final pre-season friendly, kick off 7.45pm.

I understand the takeover was completed a few weeks back by a company called SISU.

But they are still in financial problems and may not be able to afford a good experienced manager.

I know they are paying quite a large sum monthly to hire the Ricoh Arena to play in, rumoured to around £1.2 million per annum.

I recon Kevin Blackwell will get the job, cheap, a little bit of experience and out of work.

It is not the best timing, but they have started ok the first 4 games, unbeaten with 1 win in the cup and 3 league draws in the league with one being away at current leaders yeovil and one against title favourites Sheff Utd.

But I do know the fans never took to Andy Thorn so maybe the felt a fans backlash might be coming after a home draw with Bury yesterday.

You may well be right I am not sure, I do know that there is a lot of hatred towards SISU on their forums, I thought they were the new owners.

They do seem to be still in a bit of financial problems that will take an awful lot of cleaning up, a bit like when our previous owners left us.

I guess if it was one of the provisos that Thorn was removed as manager before any takeover would happen then that would appear to be a valid reason for his departure.

Must have someone lined up to replace him, surely it might have been better to have got rid of him at the end of last season so the new boss had time to build a squad.

You're showing yourself up there, not Brown. He took Wimbledon from the Isthmian League to back into the Football League in 4 years. That's no mean feat. Once Di Canio's managed 3 promotions in 4 years, then might be the time to gloat.

Terry Browns lower league record is tremendous and I am not doubting that one bit, however for him to take a dig at Di Canio before he was even tested was very arrogant of him, and was definitely looking to get on the high horse.

MKD have bigger crowds than AFCB and I can't believe that they would be operating much under the cap so how can Bournemouth have a 4 times bigger budget and remain within the 65% cap?  Surely either sloppy reporting or something underhand going on down on the south coast!

You can pay players one off fees through "sponsors" or "investors" which doesn't count as part of your turnover. In turn you pay the players lower wages. So it's quite possible they are well within the cap.

I reckon he's realised he's a shit manager and had his career defining spell at Blackpool. So he jumped ship to the security of a four year contract at Palace, knowing he'll get sacked in six months (when Palace realise he's shit) with a big fat compensation payout.

So they have approached Benetez to gage if he fancies taking over on a short term basis?  Presumably that means until the summer when Roman will try and pull Pep again.  Has Rafa really fallen that far?

I'd find it fucking hilarious if RA splashes out another £150m and then Pep tells him he doesnt fancy it and goes to Man City or Arsenal or United.

RDM should have told RA to fuck his job offer in the summer when Buck and Gourley were doing a whistletop tour of Europe sounding out every other Tom, Dick and Harry if they wanted the job.  RDM could have walked into any other job in Europe back then on the back of his European Cup win.

I wish he'd make John Terry the temporary manager, the sack the cunt after a couple of defeats.  That would send the West London cunts into meltdown!

Over the last 7 seasons Chelsea have pissed away around £400m - that's the sum of the losses from their annual accounts. Not sure what the Arsenal accounts are like for the same period but I believe they are run as a business and hover around break even, they certainly don't have someone pumping never ending funding in.

Fully agree.He was never going to go to Ukraine. He's only managed clubs on the south coast and London, and he's quite settled on Sandbanks.

Quite simple, pick 10 players you think will join QPR in January and the one who gets the most correct wins

Dawson for a start.  Bit of a long shot but Scott Parker?

Pdc has the same mentality towards signing players as arry does get in as many as you can and hope for the best. You could say he had a helping hand in pompys destruction signing players to huge contracts but then alot of managers for pompy did that.

When you look at how much they've spent and some of the players they have I think the owners must expect them to be higher up the table. Or they needed a cup run to balance the books.

Whilst what you say makes sense I think the fans, who have the most expensive season tickets in the prem,  will turn eventually. IAnd its usually the manager that takes the fall before the board.

Plus Wenger is overrated ;)

On another note I read the Arsenal chairman had a heart attack. Hope he is OK and back to full health soon.

Tippeligaen isn't a very high standard, there have been a few players over the years who have been very good in Norway but not been good enough in England. Iversen was probably a prime example.

Championship - Bollywood star in line for coaching job at Blackburn

The farce at Ewood Park shows little signs of stopping amid reports that Blackburn’s training today has been handled by Judan Ali.

If the name does not sound familiar, that is understandable – Ali’s footballing CV is sketchy at best - but there are reports that he is set for a permanent role at Rovers and could even become the club's next manager.

The stand-out detail is perhaps that he played a role in a Bollywood film in 2007 entitled Dhan Dhana Dhan Goal, the story of a football team of south Asian players in London. Box Office India described the movie as ‘below average’.

On the footballing side, there is considerably less to support Ali taking a coaching role. The 39-year-old Londoner was once on the books as a youngster at Arsenal, but was released before being contracted. Requests for trials at other clubs, the Independent reports, were fruitless.

He picked an Under-15 India team for a summer festival at Arsenal, a tournament which the team won, but just three years ago he was still working for a team by the name of Accrington Stanley Bowles, a ‘QPR internet supporters’ club’ plying their trade in the fifth tier of the London Sunday Sportsman’s League.

In a 2011 interview with the Daily Mirror he was reported as working through his FA coaching badges, and harbouring dreams of breaking new ground in management.

“I’m now taking my badges, thanks to the help of the FA," he said, "and my goal is to become the first British Asian Premier League manager."

Kevin MacDonald, a former coach at Aston Villa who had a brief stint as caretaker manager, is the favourite to land the Rovers job after Henning Berg was sacked after just 10 games in charge of the Championship club.

But Ali has been offered a place in the coaching set-up even before the manager is appointed, and is expected to be involved in team selection for the weekend’s trip to Barnsley.

Fans have backed the removal of Berg, but sounded caution over the next appointment.

“To be honest I’m surprised they’ve made such a swift decision, but it is the correct one,” said Wayne Wild, co-chairman of supporters’ group Rovers Trust, who said he would like to see Hughes return.

“His appointment itself was just another strange decision. They [Venky’s] purposely went after an ex-player. It was all about trying to win over the fans when really it was just another cheap option.

“When you think we’ve hit rock-bottom we manage to dig a little further. This club has become a national joke.”

I really am beginning to get tired of the 'HE'S A FASCIST!' statement other fans automatically jump to. I understand if football fans know three things about Di Canio, it's that he shoved over a ref, scored the best goal of all time, and used to stick his right hand up when celebrating. Yep, he used to play up to the crowds in Lazio. Yep, he probably had some leanings towards that section of politics because he grew up in the middle of it. But, shock horror, he grew as a person and is not the same as he was then. As anyone who bothered to actually research the man would understand, he's a pseudo-samurai-cosmic-earth-paganist. Sure he might still believe in one party rule, or act like a fascist in the dressing room, but frankly, at a place where blokes are getting paid new-car-every-week money for a bit of running around, that's what's often needed. That and being a hard-arse in the dressing room in a football club is not the same as sending millions to their death on a whim. His past doesn't rest wholly easy with me, but his penance (it seems) is to work thrice as hard as anyone else in the business, and thank fuck we have him...

Bit of perspective, and change the record please...

Donny's chairman really stood by him last season as Saunders spectacularly failed to salvage them from the brink. That's one in the eye for loyalty.

'Global Advisor' Shebby Singh.  There's a made up job title if ever I heard one.  Quite why Blackburn need a global advisor anyway is something of a mystery...especially when his brightest idea seems to be pinching a manager from 30 miles up the road.

Then they appoint Appleton, which was not exactly the sore of appointment that would excite me if I were one of them.

Then after 9 week he wants to leave. To go to the biggest nut case club in the FL. Its not like its because he didn't settle in the area, its < 30 miles between the two.

But Blackpool are the cheapskate club. They do everything on the cheap so the Oyston's can probably take another huge 'dividend' out of the club, after the took out £11m after their Premiership season, which was more than the total wage bill for the season.

I think they'll go for O'Driscoll now, as he's free.

Steve Lomas to Doncaster as recommended by 'Arry.

Quote
Steve Lomas is in contention for the English job Steve Lomas is in contention for the English job

WITH just one season left on his contract with Saint Johnstone, it is believed that Lomas may be interested to talk to Doncaster.

STEVE LOMAS could be the next SPL manager head-hunted by an English club after Harry Redknapp advised Doncaster to swoop for him.

Record Sport understands the St Johnstone boss has been placed on a shortlist of eight contenders to replace Dean Saunders who was appointed as the new man in charge at Wolves yesterday.

But Lomas is already thought to be one of the favourites for the position after the League One club received a glowing personal recommendation from QPR boss Redknapp.

Redknapp bought a 23-year-old Lomas for West Ham for £2.5million in 1997 and made him skipper. The pair have remained close friends ever since.

And Redknapp’s blessing is believed to hold a great deal of sway with the men in charge at the Keepmoat, chief executive Gavin Baldwin and chairman John Ryan.
Steve Lomas emerges among the contenders for the vacant Doncaster Rovers job

With their club in the thick of the mix for promotion to the Championship, Ryan and Baldwin have already set to work on nailing down Saunders’ successor.

And with a trip to face play-off hopefuls Stevenage looming on Saturday they could make an official approach to speak to Lomas this week.

The Northern Irishman, 38, clinched a place in the Europa League qualifiers for Saints last season and currently has them sitting just four points behind second-placed Inverness in the SPL.

But Lomas has had a bumpy relationship with chairman Steve Brown since moving to Perth a year ago and, with only one more season to go on his contract, is likely to be interested in hearing what Doncaster have to say.

The problem at Blackpool can be summed up in one word - Oyston.  Is this the original Oyston now running the club or is that a son?  Didn't the original one get banged up for tax evasion or something similar (apologies if I'm wrong on that one) so he got his wife to take over the club.

Every time I read a who-the-next-manager-should-be threads on a football league club's forum, the number of decent out of work managers always amazes me. Which makes the appointments at Blackburn Rovers look even crazier.

To be fair to the City fans, half of them don't want Paolo and the other half who do know he won't go there. They seem to be taking their fall from grace in good spirits, but I doubt that will be the case if we leap frog them and are in a division higher next season.

I honestly cant think of what sort of club would be interested in PdC and, more to the point, what sort of club would interest him.

Seems STFC and PdC are a perfect fit

I reckon when he moves on it wont be in this country

As wild as that may seem you may, just may have got it spot on. There are not to many clubs in this country if any that would be brave enough to take him on. WHU fans are dreaming and have got rose tinted bubbles in their eyes. Gold would not have the likes of Di Canio on his payroll, he needs a yes man as do most owners. Don't see PDC as a yes man do you?

I'm confident if he carries on getting results somebody somewhere, probably championship, will take him on. Probably at the end of this season.

But the expectation and pressure will increase at a bigger club, not sure how that'll go with him...

While he plays up to the Italian stereotype, I don't think you can ignore the affinity he has with the English game.  He clearly likes it here...and wouldn't have come back after a lengthy spell away if he didn't.  He'll have plenty of options when he decides to call time with us - here and abroad.  But it may be a while yet.

He's said before that he doesn't want to manage in Italy and came here specifically because he thinks the game suits him better as a manager than anywhere else.

My guess is that when he's done with us he'll go to a lower prem team then ultimately I think he'll end up at West Ham, I think it's inevitable.

In my opinion he'll go right to the very top, I know it's early days but I can see him one day managing a massive football club.

The Shitty fans seemed to think PDC would be a motivator and ideal to achieve a turnaround.  Time isn't on their side.

How would he deal with expectations of a struggling side?

PDC is a motivator, sure, but he seems to be at his best when given time to correct mistakes and unite a squad, PDC's way, which can take time.

He is a builder and for that reason, imo,  he would choose to move on when his project ends here and when he is given another project - not mid season to rescue some Championship club in the shit.  That would only happen if, by chance,  it coincided with a genuine fall out with the board here.

PDC is loyal, in his own terms, and as long as Swindon's and PDC's very own "project promotion" to the Championship remains, I doubt very much that he would leave mid-season other than to WHU.

I think him and a few clubs would be a good match, but he will not leave us mid season for a struggling Championship club.

Now if a Premiership club came in then that could be a different story.

Not that I think many would take the gamble on him, the only ones being WHU or possibly Wigan or Villa.

I do fear that if Villa sack Lambert then they will make an approach for Paolo.

They have seen his work up close this season and they will give him lots of funding for new players and he is the type of man they would be looking for, cheap (in comparison to an established manager) and a known motivator of players who play good football. The only possible minus point would be that he has not worked in management with a struggling club. Whether he has enough about him to stop the rot in a team that are low in motivation and pride, which Villa obviously are at the moment.

Anyone that went to the last game of the season there in 1987 when we kept them out of the play-offs might suggest otherwise.

They really did give two shits about us that day, we got both barrels outside afterwards.
Worse than any Poxford game I can remember.
Spot on. Any match against City proves they do give a shit. Cleatly the Rovers match may mean more brizzle bragging rights, but that will end soon when Rovers are in the conference.

I'm more worried about Leeds coming in for him when Warnock is no doubt sacked in a week or 2. Having said that though Ken Bates isn't there anymore.

On a more serious note though would any manager really want to manage at that level? There are a lot of ex-PL teams in there who seem to think they have a divine right to be in the top flight and thus if aren't in the top half or the top 6 sack their managers without hesitation. The manager turnaround in the championship this season has been beyond crazy.

ferry has proved for long enough now that, despite his natural character, he is a perfect professional who will strive with all of his heart to do the best for the team he is playing for. 

he gives everything when on the pitch and over the last 12 or so months has added so much more to his game - he's tenacious, creative, athletic and he is now breaking forward from midfield so often that opposing defenders have no idea who they should be paying attention to, which is part of the reason we are scoring so many goals at the moment.

the impact that ferry has on our side at the moment should never be underestimated - everything goes through him - he may not get the goals or assitsts that ritchie gets but without him neither would ritchie.

for me he is indispensable and i dare say exactly what scotland need at the moment - he has an energy which is so rare in the modern game and i would have him in my squad regardless of which division because he is every inch the footballer i know i could rely on to do the very best for his team no matter the odds against them.

simon ferry is a fucking hero and i hope to god that when paolo gets us into the prem he is still here and by then hopefully captain - i wouldn't swap him for the world.

you can keep all of those coca fola and i'll keep simon ferry. 

i really do think a massive proportion of our fanbase need to realise how lucky we are to have him, he's one of the best footballers we've had in a very, very long time.

Disagree KT, just like I disagreed with Leeds fans banging on about Snodgrass when he was playing third tier football.

I cannot believe any 3rd division footballer would be close enough to the standard of being able to positively contribute to an international squad. Perhaps when Ferry is playing week in week out top end Championship he will get his chance, but he's not used to competing with a good enough standard of players through out the season to be selected ahead of the player CF mentioned.

Another example would be Austin, we all knew he was a natural goal scorer when he was with us, but there was no way he'd ever be thought about for internationals, he has to prove he can do it in the championship, then the premiership, against top class opponents, and then he'll get his chance.

Hope he does make it one day though, as Ferry's a 'top boi'.

I was fortunate to have a decent chat with 5 members of our squad last season ( only one of which is still here) I did ask them who they all thought was Towns best player and they all said Simon Ferry...

I'm also very much in the Ferry fan club - I love Ferry more than my family. I also believe he's our best player.

It's been said loads on here, but most of us say that, if *player name* was consistent, he wouldn't be at this level for long. Well, I don't believe Ferry's had a bad game since the relegation and even then he didn't really, in my opinion, because he didn't really play. Hence, he's crucial to the team. He works hard and doesn't fuck shit up.

I think Ferry is good enough for an international call up for Scotland.

If they can call up Rangers players which is a much much lower standard than our league then Ferry stands a great chance and TBH I have been to several Scots Premier League games and the standard is on average pretty much the same as it is in League 1.

Blackpool approach Franchise for Robinson. I'd expect Winkleman to knock them back.


Franchise Football Company has released the following statement in response to speculation linking manager Karl Robinson to Blackpool.
“It comes as no surprise that Karl’s name is once again touted for one of the top managerial positions in the Championship as his bold and stylish brand of football has invited plenty of talk in the industry.

“Since being appointed at stadiummk as the youngest manager in the Football League, Karl has guided the business to back-to-back play-off campaigns, broken a number of business records and only yesterday he created history by leading our business into the fourth round of the FA Cup for the first time.

“Karl is an ambitious, bright young manager and he is firmly focused on realising Franchise’ dream of conducting business in the Championship.

“Following discussions between Karl and the Franchisee, the company have turned down an approach from Blackpool to speak to Karl regarding the managerial vacancy at Bloomfield Road.

“Karl remains committed to the players, staff and, most importantly, the paying customers of Franchise, and will be looking to take the business from strength to strength by continuing to write new pages in its very short and checkered history book.”

The company will not comment further on this matter.

Its not even as though the new chap has a brilliant track record! At Espanyol he managed 160, won 53 drew 38 and lost 69 before he got sacked after they were bottom of the league in November.

Hope they go down and Adkins get a job managing a team near the top of the Championship and takes that team up.

Pochettino is a personal friend of the executive chairman Nicola Cortese apparently.

Pochettino first came to notice for his typical Argentinian scything down of Michael Owen in the 98 WC, for the winning pen.

He did a decent job at Espanyol, for a couple of seasons, under difficult circumstances of having to sell all the better players, but got sacked recently when they were rock bottom of La Liga.  I'd say this is a massive gamble by Soton, as there's nothing in Pochettino's CV, to suggest he can cope with the rigours of the Prem.

TBF to Pochettino and the Argies, they didn't make too much fuss of St Michael's dive..knowing as they do if a defender hangs a leg out then a forward will find a way of connecting with it. In much the same way if you punch the ball into the goal and the officials fail to see, it whether through incompetence or previous financial persuasion then that's OK as well.

Somewhat bizarre unless there has been a change of ownership between the 2 sackings or they want Adkins

As you say Batch, the obvious consequence to Paolo's statement is to link him with a current vacancy.

I would have thought that when he leaves he might want a bit more of a step up than Huddersfield though and may well want to wait a while for the right opportunity when his project with Swindon is finished.

EDIT..... left by mutual consent....alll is not good at Forest behind the scenes by the look of it.

Quote
This morning Nottingham Forest and Alex McLeish have mutually agreed to part company.
Chairman Fawaz Al-Hasawi said: “I’m bitterly disappointed – as is Alex – that it has not worked out as we had hoped when he became our manager and I would like to put on record my thanks for his services to the Club and wish him every success in the future.”

McLeish said: “I am extremely saddened to be leaving after such a short period but even so it has been a privilege to be manager of such a fantastic football club and I want to thank the players, staff and fans for their support and wish Nottingham Forest the best of fortunes ahead.

“Both parties entered into the relationship in good faith, however, there was a difference in the understanding of the development strategy of the football club and it was felt by both parties that we should part company”.

The Club will be making no further comment.

Looks like Robins could well be appointed today at 'Udders.

Wesley sacked from Preston. Sure that will help with the debts.

Bloke seemed to be a bit of knob, was looking forward to us avenging that 4-1 defeat up there! I was sure after that performance they'd be in with a good shout, but they seem to have got worse!

Its been on the cards for ages, Coventry rumoured to be interested in Wrexham manager and ex Covvy player Andy Morrell who has a win ratio as manager of 59% which is actually a little higher than Paolo's win ratio after almost the same number of games but at a fair bit lower level of course.

Interesting you say that.

I can't help feeling that either he engineered his exit so as to be able to let the dust settle and be parachuted into something yet to materialise, in other words he's been offered a job that has not become officially available or Andrew Black was more informed and cunning than we gave him credit for. In other words I cannot help coming round to the point that his stance to the others (Fitton et al) to waive their entitlement WRT their investment or I'll liquidate the club, was in fact a clever way to rid STFC of Di Canio and his uncontrolability, free spending and internal destructiveness. I add into my thought process the speed of which the new investors took control even allowing for the time that it dragged on and was oficially to blame for Di Cano's eventual resignation and the speed with which KMac was appointed from out of no-where, throw into the mix the comments by SWP that Di Cano knew about the possible sale of Ritchie and Jed's criptic comments about welcoming AB back as an investor again. Is it me or do things not quiet add up?

I think that there is a lot more that has gone on which we do not know about - from Wray's dismisal through to PDC resigning. If PDC did know in advance about the sale of Ritchie then it does change the whole picture somewhat.

Really? He might not be well known if all you do (not you, jonny but the armchair Sky fans) is scan the back pages but loads of people knew him as a well-respected number 2 at Villa surely, albeit perhaps not before that?

Not disagreeing with your main point but I don't think it's quite fair to describe MacDonald as a bloke no one has heard of.

I had to look him up when he was linked with us. I'd imagine I'd read about him when he was linked with the Blackburn job, and possibly previously when he was at Villa, but the name didn't stick. I was however being facetious when I referred to him as a bloke no one has heard of and was alluding to the fact that most people reading that article still wouldn't have heard of him.

I'm no armchair Sky fan as I don't have Sky, but the only number two's I'm familiar with get flushed down the toilet.

Like this line in the mail:

"It means that if Blackburn get another manager in they will have had same number this season as Manchester United have had since 1972."

 ;D

On a less than serious note, I wonder how the win rate of bald managers rates mathematically against those with a full head of hair?

Just to take an unscientific sample from us, since Macari our tally is:

Bald:
   
Steve McMahon      
Andy King      
Iffy Onuora      
Maurice Malpas      
Paul Hart   

Hair:

Lou Macari      
Osvaldo Ardiles      
Glenn Hoddle      
John Gorman   
Jimmy Quinn
Colin Todd
Roy Evans   
Dennis Wise   / Gus Poyet
Paul Sturrock
Danny Wilson
Paolo Di Canio      
Kevin MacDonald

(accounting for my potentially dubious memory and differences of opinion over where the line is drawn between a receding hairline and bald)

:hmmm:

Not cut and dry (boom boom) by any standards with a dubious run from Gorman to Evans, but it seems like if we don't have a head of hair in charge we might as well just give up.

Not sacked as such but he will be leaving at the end of the season, so he will lead Sarfend out at Wembley next week.
Club statement on their OS.

Quote
Club Statement
Some decisions in Business Life are:

• Relatively easy judgements

others are

• difficult to make

rarely in business should decisions

• be influenced by emotion

The decision I have had to make today was a very hard call but one I instinctively know is correct and in the best interests of Southend United Football Club.
Most people associated with the Club are currently thinking of “the day out” at Wembley.  The 7th April will be a Special Day, a day in the Club’s history….a day for the Town of Southend.

I too will look forward to “our day out” but as Chairman my responsibility and focus must also be on the wider interests of “Southend United”.  The primary objective last season and again this season was Promotion.  The Manager and Players have understood that from the outset.  We came up short last season in the Play Offs and the recent results against relatively low League teams such as:

o Accrington
o Barnet
o Wimbledon
o Plymouth
and
o Torquay

have not been good enough…..2 points out of 15 by any standard is poor.  ALL these Teams’ playing budgets are considerably less than Southend United’s and 4 out of the 5 teams are around half of what Southend United invest in “its” Squad.  The amount of investment in players must be one of the fundamental criteria for success – otherwise I could argue that by cutting the Clubs budget in half we should still expect promotion.  Our investment has enabled the Manager to build a squad both last year and this year of having more, quality, players at his disposal than most Teams in the League.  Therefore in the event of injury or suspension other players were readily available to “step up to the plate” and prove themselves.

All Teams in football have injuries and when that has happened at Southend we have supported the Manager still further on every occasion.  The Board has recently sanctioned an additional six players (5 loanees) to help maintain the challenge at the top end of the Table.  However the form, just as it did last season, has dropped off when it should have been pushing for automatic promotion.  Let’s be clear, promotion should always be a realistic prospect for Southend United in League 2.  We are not a League 2 Club and my ambition as Chairman is to ensure we compete and fulfil our potential whilst at Roots Hall and continue that trend in the new Stadium.

Promotion has always been the first priority and the Manager has always known that.

We could reasonably have expected to win all the above games and that would have seen us currently 2nd in the League Table…even 12 points would have seen us in the Automatics.  However with just 2 points out of 15 when judged against the further support and investment in new players is unacceptable.

Paul Sturrock’s three year contract comes to an end this season and The Club will not be renewing Paul’s contract.  Paul’s first year was difficult but the last two seasons he has had a free hand to achieve the clear objective of getting the Club out of this League.  No matter how much I personally wrestle with the positive arguments (Paul is experienced, a nice man, honest and likeable) my responsibility is to bring success and growth to your Club.

If the Club were to appoint a different Manager during the Close Season the new man would have no opportunity to assess the ability of the current squad of players in, and crucially, a competitive environment.  That would mean that we would start next season with uncertainty, inevitable changes and a loss of continuity as he got to grips with each players ability (strengths/weaknesses), the individual characteristics and how those temperaments mould within the squad as a whole.

This all takes time and the Club needs to hit the ground running from day 1 with absolute focus on the task in hand.  Not “spluttering” whilst the new Manager is still on a steep learning curve as to each players suitability etc.

The next 7-8 games (at least) is an opportunity for the players to prove their ability.  I have not lost faith in this Squad, they are good people, with talent and many capable of playing at a higher level.  I would like to keep much of the Squad together but it is now up to each and every player to prove beyond any doubt that my faith, and in the opinion of the new Manager,  is not misplaced.

The Club as I say above will not be renewing Paul’s contract at the end of this season and will appoint a new Manager tomorrow to ensure the Club’s interests are protected and advanced both now and from the first day of next Season.

They say

“there is no sentiment in football”

I do not agree, we are all human and have to understand the emotions influenced by our decisions.

The decisions here are, as I say at the beginning of this Statement, driven by the wider interests of Southend United…..its success and growth whilst remaining conscious of what is fair and just.  These may not be sentiments common to Football but it is the way I want this Club to be run.

For all these reasons I have suggested to Paul he leads the Team out and manages them at Wembley.  He has earned that privilege and agreed.

Ron Martin
Chairman

I'm glad he get the chance to lead them out at Wembley, it would have been easy to cut him immediately.

I didn't read it that he'd be doing anything more than that though. This bit says:

Seems like his garden will be well tended to until the end of the season.

Oh, and PDC to Southend ? :)

edit: Actually the more I think about the timing of this the more I think the chairman has dropped a bollock! Let Sturrock manage at Wembley, but bring a new man in tomorrow. WTF are the players going to think! Still, not our problem, which is nice.

The new owners said a threat of legal action from an ex-employee was causing issues and they weren't talking about Bodin. PDC's agent had the opportunity to clear it up and refused, if there wasn't a possibility he'd have said so. It also appears the rest of his team refused to finalise their employment with us. All of which points to only one thing and if it isn't the case then it's something PDC could and should have cleared up - he's not normally shy when it comes to giving interviews or comment.

The new owners said a threat of legal action from an ex-employee was causing issues and they weren't talking about Bodin. PDC's agent had the opportunity to clear it up and refused, if there wasn't a possibility he'd have said so. It also appears the rest of his team refused to finalise their employment with us. All of which points to only one thing and if it isn't the case then it's something PDC could and should have cleared up - he's not normally shy when it comes to giving interviews or comment.

As i said Paolo has not threatened us with any action...end of story.



People like you prefer to go along on the wave of emotional shit the local media outlets spout out.

Is there a possibility he could....who knows...certainly not you.....or me come to that.

Being accused of trying to sue his former employers has the potential to be very, very damaging to his reputation.

If he has no intention of suing, he would have said so by now.

You would have thought so....but the fact he is being lined up by a Premiership Club and looks like the new manager seems to suggest its as not as damaging as you say.

So are you suggesting he needs to comment before he takes the Sunderland hot seat....course he isn't......and believe me Sunderland wouldn't give a fuck.....they would just do the decent thing and make sure any contract they draw up is honoured....its the best and easiest way of not getting sued. :D

You have made my point even more valid really.

He hasnt made no comments on the matter....unlike many others who havn't a fucking clue.

Relatives of mine are very mixed over it, a couple of my cousins want to give him a go but after asking how he was here they aren't so sure he can handle not only the current predicament they're in (having no real experience of managing at that level let alone fighting a relegation battle) BUT as has been said on here about his management of 'bigger' players!

With the deal all but done it seems he'll be unveiled tomorrow! I've also been offered a ticket for Chelsea v Sunderland next Sunday...not sure about what my reaction will be towards PdC after everything that happened here (both good and the bad)!

Most clubs would likely care a lot about the possibility of hiring somebody that may sue them at some point.

Sunderland may not be one of those clubs but that's not the point because many others would be adverse to employing staff with a track record of suing past employees. His beloved West Ham included. If he's been on the look out for jobs, which evidently he has, he would not want the accusation of making a law suit against previous employers over his head. Of course he wouldn't.

It would be effortless and cost less for him to deny the allegations, which are quite serious. He hasn't done so.

Its certainly going to be interesting. As Major says, he's never had thing go badly on the field before so it'll be interesting to see how a relagation battle goes.

Match of the Day will have to be extended from its normal slot to 4 hours long to accommodate his post match comments.

Well as you can tell by now i havn't got nothing to feel bad about towards him...he gave his all to the club and many ill feelings aimed towards him are based on nothing more than hearsay.

When and if if he comes out and confirms he is sueing the club i may have a change of heart.

Good luck to him at Sunderland if he takes the job......though a match in August v the Mackems would be nice and spicy i am sure.

I think he could do well there.

However.....

He's not the right appointment at this stage of the season. His teams take time to adapt even with a full pre-season under their belt. If they were already down he could be a great appointment but in their current situation, Sunderland really should be looking at somebody else.

I hope we didn't settle with Paolo on Thursday to lift the embargo for him to show up at Sunderland a few days later. Would have thought he had been approached before this weekend. If he takes Piccareta and Co with him then that should close any claims from the rest of his team.

Sunderland would resurrect and appoint Bin Laden if they thought he would keep them up. They wont give a flying fuck about appointing diCanio even if he was in the middle of a court case against us if they thought he would keep them up. The one thing we overlook is that DiCanio is not a bad manager, extremely rough around the edges but he gets results and that's all that matters at the moment.

Historically Sunderland are bigger than Leeds, having won 6 League titles to Leeds' 3.  Sunderland have 2 FA Cups to Leeds' 1.

Both have had lean times, resulting in roughly a collective 30 odd seasons in Div 2...Sunderland's best days were pre war, Leeds' 60's into 70's, with the Wilkinson blip in the last season before Prem, after they'd been in Div 2 for some years.

di Canio has got himself the very definition of a sleeping giant.

It is funny how these names drop in and out of the footballing conversation. Forgotten he even existed.

If you add in the top end Conference sides there are about 100 managers at any one time..of those prob at the seasons end about 20 might be considered successful. The other 80 are in danger of the sack, although some of the successful ones will be as well.  You probably get 2 or 3 cracks at being successful, before falling off the merry go round all together.

You can then step into the assistant or assistant to the assistant. All very lucrative, because if sacked you have to paid up in full.

Classic examples...Colin Calderwood and Paul Trollope at Norwich. It is of course possible to fall out of the loop altogether, but if you play the game there should always be something for you, if you haven't made enough not to work again. I daresay Andy King is still doing something for somebody, if his health is up to it.

Was looking at YT videos of old Swindon games and stumbled across the PO semi's against Brighton, we absolutely battered them in both legs.

Convinced if we got to the final we would've beaten City that season.
 
It would've been an unbelievable feat with the budget we had back then.

The journey back from the 2nd leg at the Withdean was one of the worst feelings I've ever had at football.

Never forget the Brighton fans running onto the pitch and straight over to our side to goad us. Awful night.

He tenure before us, with us and after us I think has clearly shown he's a good man to have at a football club in any capacity other than manager!

He found some good players for us. He did outstay his welcome and should have gone in summer 05.

i remember at one of the first games of the season after the playoffs a chap at the back of the townend chanted 'we want kingy out' and the whole stand turned on him and he had to get escorted out by stewards followed by everyone chanting wanker. good times. i enjoyed the king era in whole, a proper good team he assembled with fallon, parkin, mooney, igoe, howard, migs. all went to shit when parkin left and his replacements in tony thorpe and cureton let him down. I remember the first game at oakwell and the positivity in the stands and then we realised how shit they were

I can remember an away game, quite where I forget, but it was oop north, when we were winning quite comfortable, 3-0 I think.  Kingy made a substitution mid-way through the second half, which involved a left back coming on at right back - or it could have been the other way round! - and everybody having to switch across the back four to accommodate it.  We went from looking comfortable to absolute schoolboy defending and lost 4-3 - if my memory serves me correctly.  I always thought he was an arrogant shit!!

11 minutes into that game I predicted our relegation. Pook was playing left wing.

Of course that was the season after the season after the play offs. Our first post play off game was away at Wrexham.

They got a penalty when Chris Armstrong elbowed Grant Smith. Young Andy Caton tapped in for us in the last minute or 2.

Stockport 3-3

Think the sub was a returning Heywood who went to centre back, Ifil moved to right back, Paul Mitchell went to left back and Grant Smith stayed on the bench.

Luke Beckett scored twice I think. My memory isn't what it used to be mind you.

2003/04 was all well and good but King was involved in close to three seasons ( what with Evans' stint and all)... and it wasn't inspiring in any way. A last ditch goal to prevent us from going in to the bottom division being a highlight!

Parkin changed it all and then 2003/04 arrived, gave us all a reason to be cheerful for the first time in close to a decade and then it all went to shit again.

I saw him in Tk Maxx about 6 months ago, we were both leafing through shirts and got to that awkward crossover point where you have to give away to the other person, as this happened I said 'Hi Jerel' wondering whether it was pronounced Jeh-rell or Jerel (I went for the first option) and he said hi back. And that was that.

Anyone read the interview with Ling on the Beeb?

"I leave the club with the illness, the club had 20 games and got 19 points between Shaun (Taylor, Ling's assistant) and Alan Knill, and all of a sudden I'm sacked."

Wonder if the truth will come out about his stress-related illness?  The rumours down here have gone from cancer to mental breakdown to alcoholism.

He was on Late Kick Off the other night.  Really unhappy about being sacked by a statement being read out to him over the phone. He didn't say anything more than he'd had a stress related illness, but was 100% again now and had been ok for the last 5 or 6 weeks

I've been saying for months that Fergie will be pushed out over the summer so Mourinho can take over. Don't think Man Utd can risk missing out on one of the worlds best managers and Mourinho would (probably) jump at the chance. Still find it hard to believe he'd want to go back to Chelsea after they got rid of him.

If/when he goes he'll surely get at least ambassador status.  I could see him being DoF and mentor to Moyes, less so to Mourinho.

I was 13 when he was appointed and can remember Atkinson before him, but that's it - I can remember 2 United managers. We've had (arguably) double that this calendar year if you count caretakers!

Yep, pretty much how I feel. I will feel very happy to have even a little bit of excitement back in the Premiership. It'll be nice to hear Manure fans moan again, like they support a real tea... oh, wait, they fucking moan anyway.

It's a bit like back in the days of F1 where Schumacher just smashed every race. He was one of my favourites (because of his driving ability as opposed to the fact he won everything), but even I found it fucking boring.

Albion manager Gus Poyet has taken a step closer to the exit door by telling his players he does not know if he will still be in charge of them next season.


  Poyet gathered the squad together at The Amex yesterday and informed them he could offer no guarantees about staying.


  Poyet is expected to sit down with chairman Tony Bloom in the next few days to discuss the playing budget and his future.


  Fulham are the latest Premier League club to be linked with the Uruguayan amid doubts Martin Jol will last at Craven Cottage.

To think, only a few weeks ago Whelan was questioning whether Everton were 'big enough' to lure Martinez away from Wigan.

Yeah, but that was when he was trying to put doubt in his mind..

In his interview with talksport last night he apparently named his predecessor Derek Llambias "Derek Lambezee," Hatem Ben Arfa "Hatem Ben Afri," Shola Ameobi "Shola Amamobi," and Yohan Cabaye "Yohan Kebab."

He also claimed to have won manager of the year 3 times, when he's only won it once, said he signed goalkeeper Tim Krul when he was actually signed by Graeme Souness in 2005, and signed off with: "I heard a silly comment of 'what can I attract?' I can open the door to any manager in the world, anyone, that's the difference."

I really want a journo to ask him if he'll phone Ferguson/Wenger/Guardiola to prove his claim. Hell, I really want anyone to ask him to prove ANY of his claims.

I like how he called every Newcastle fan/member of the club a moron right at the end too.

To be fair, there can be positives in not staying long - as Ince demonstrated when quietly moving on to let a cash strapped STFC cut short an unwanted contract.

When you compare that to the costly efforts in disposing of the injured beached whale of a premiershit player we had here at about that time, I would say Ince was a short stay gentleman.

I think so, although speaking to my relatives up there they're not too sure if he's the man they need to lead them out of a relegation battle with no PL experience, will start again and get rid of the absolute fodder Di Canio brought in (which they said is a good thing) but just means time will be needed in Jan to gel a squad together...if they aren't too far behind of course!

To be fair he has some experience of Cardiff FC. Work experience of painting the walls over the summer. Couldn't make it up.

On a slight tangent, Reading's future seems slightly less clear after the guy who bought 51% of the shares a year or so ago failed to buy the remaining 49% by the deadline. Rumours are he wants to offload. Don't really have an opinion on Reading myself, other than Madjetski being utterly brilliant as an owner.

I think so, although speaking to my relatives up there they're not too sure if he's the man they need to lead them out of a relegation battle with no PL experience, will start again and get rid of the absolute fodder Di Canio brought in (which they said is a good thing) but just means time will be needed in Jan to gel a squad together...if they aren't too far behind of course! They also said there was nobody else around and Poyet was no.1 all the way through despite rumours of Di Matteo.

To be fair, I don't think Di Canio himself brought these players in - I read an article the other day which talked about how the Director of Football and chief scout were in charge of player transfers, Di Canio just told them what he wanted (and sometimes who). So will be interesting to see what happens to these players.

Thought he did a good job for them, as he did get them up last season, but it was always going to be tough for them, and their main aim was to stay up, but it looks like Scally has other ideas.

Blackwell being sacked is even more stupid. He had to totally re-build the squad at Bury in the pre season. Expecting that team to hit the ground running is a near on impossible task.

Ridiculous move. He's had to get in a whole new squad on nothing.

Towards the back end of last season Bury were contacting clubs at every level asking if they were releasing any players, including us. My nephew got a trial with them, 16 years old and only ever played at Schoolboy level. That's desperation!

Not really. Just because it doesn't work for a manager at one club doesn't mean he won't be a success at another. And especially in the case of Allen and Blackwell, as others have pointed out in this thread, both sackings reflect more poorly on the board/chairman than they do on either manager - neither given the backing to do the job properly then sacked when results unsurprisingly didn't look as good as the board had hoped on the basis of what? Wild optimism, presumably? For the record, I wouldn't want either of them here, but it's daft to talk about it as "bullets dodged" just on the basis of them being sacked.

And conversely, many looked at Cooper's past record and found it uninspiring but he seems to be doing really rather well here. Again, you have to look at the circumstances they were working in, not just the WDL or whether they were eventually sacked.

Would still take Devera back in a heartbeat at the moment. As for Ferry, of the summer departures, I was sorriest to see him go at the time, but we replaced him surprisingly quickly with more technically gifted midfielders, and those who said it would be the grit of McCormack we'd miss most have been proved right.

It looks a weak league this season as only 3 or 4 points separating the top 10 suggests.

Obviously Pompey are a much larger club than them and will, no doubt, in time climb back up.

Not knocking the Pox just for the hell of it but there is only so far they can go. Even having a successful season so far has seen attendances drop.

A lot of their fans are still blaming Wilder for the lack of atmosphere/falling attendances at the Kassam, despite their being top of League 2.  Interesting situation.  If I was him, I'd probably be giving serious thought to Pompey (even though they're a basket case).  He got Oxford back in to the League, beat us several times and is now preparing them for a possible return to Division 3.  What more can he do?  Fair enough - the home form is average at best, but the away form is excellent.  The Kassam is a characterless concrete bunker, so hardly conducive to producing a run of electric home performances for them.

No love lost for Oxford, obviously, but he is now one of the League's longer serving managers.  Even though it is them, a tenure like he has had is something that I'd like to see more of.

It could, but might not, after all Brentford did do a Devon Loch last season for which the manager has to be accountable.

Swansea have shown that if you get a template in place, then pick a manager who fits the template, it is possible to even improve a side when a gaffer goes.

As always with STFC it's a case of might have been....we had the template with Ardiles and then Hoddle/Gorman, but threw it away with McMahon.

Pity it did not happen just before they played us.

Do lower league managers really earn the chances they are given in the Championship these days. One little bit of success and they are off. And I use success loosely, its not like Brentford are paupers any more so the playoffs were a good achievement but not as unexpected as Yeovil making it.

Would have thought any decision on the future of our loanees would depend more on the future of Sherwood et al at Spurs. Any new first team manager is going to have enough on his plate with the first team and Jan transfer window to start off with, doubt he's going to start bothering himself with sub-reserve players, he'll be happy enough to leave that well alone for now. Possibly the only change would be to halt any permanent outgoings until he's had time to assess them. Which may play in our favour if it leaves Pritchard and Mason here for the rest of the season rather than being flogged off in Jan.

Can't help but think that Sherwood stepping up to the plate at Spurs might help us (assuming he's the prime mover at that end behind shifting half-decent players our way) albeit can't quite articulate why.

Conversely, mind, if a new fella comes in and does a Di Canio-style clean sweep of all the backroom staff, he could be out on his arse and our "understanding" could be in tatters.

Bugger, now I've set myself off into a spiral of barely articulated worry. I don't even know how much of a worry it would be if we lost the Spurs link, just everything seems a bit fragile at the moment (as in could go either way, not as in about to fall completely apart)

He's said he'll pitch the youngsters in at Spurs because that's the players he knows. If he gets the job Spurs will have to be prepared to write off a fair chunk of money on some of the recent signings. It shouldn't affect any of them at ours as they've got to be light years from the first team but if he fancies any of them within the next year it would make sense to pitch them with a Championship club.
I also think Levy is arrogant enough to want a name so I'd put my money of Van Gal or whatever his name is.

The only person who's said that he's overspent is Tan. At the end of the day Tan or his Chief Exec has approved the spending on the players in the summer. I'm sure what has happened in the last week hasn't helped the players on the pitch.

Yet he claims the £35M agreed was not overspend as that is what they spend on fees. Its the add ons that seem a bit of an issue.

Can't argue with the results. But its Cardiff in the first season of the Prem, what were expectations. £35M/£50M is a fuck of a lot of money, but in the Premier league is it so much to expect safety?

Meh, just being argumentative. Can't stand Cardiff so don't really care.

I went to the Spurs v West Brom game yesterday... Sherwood's Spurs played the same way we do at times, with regards to having no movement, passing it along the back line endlessly, and being rubbish at set pieces (both taking them and defending them); aside from Eriksson's beauty. The difference in quality was negligible.
I can't see Sherwood's spell in charge at Spurs ending too well and when it does end I don't think he will return to his previous role, so it would be interesting to see what happens to our arrangement with Spurs.

They are guaranteed at teast £60 Million in tv rights this season anyway as are all the prem clubs so Tan is hardly out of pocket

Fully agree. I've been saying for years that one of the automatic places for the CL should be given to the FA winners. That way the 'big clubs' will take it very seriously.

It used to be the big football event. Both ITV & BBC would start their build up coverage first thing in the morning,  with reporters at the team hotels and even on the coaches. Celebrity fans of each team would appear, usually comedians. Then both tv channels would screen the match live (although I don't know why ITV bothered, as most people preferred the BBC coverage). Now it's lost most of it's pull. Real shame.

He's done well to keep the Scummers in the league so its probably good for him to join an established league club.

Eh? What's he done to upset them? Done a fairly decent-ish job hasn't he, given the material he had to work with and that they're not the richest club in the world (and Kassam owns most of their potential revenue streams)

Yeah fair enough, just puzzled that he'd apparently done something to inspire ire. He always struck me as being slightly on right the side of mediocre, so a perfect fit for them really. And while I could see they might not see it that way, just wondered if he'd done anything in particular to upset them.

Wilder is a non-league manager in the eyes of a lot of Oxford fans according to my colleague who frequents the three-sided entertainment complex. I don't think the annual capitulation helps his cause either.

Apparently when they were in the Conference, he said they weren't a massive club with an illustrious history, but rather a small Conference club, and the fans needed to face that fact...it proved too much for many.

What a seemingly bizarre relationship Wilder and Oxford United have.

To be honest, I don't know enough about it. This must be what it's like when non-Swindon Town fans read the bizarre news that's emerged from our club over the last few years.

He's gone hasn't he, I cannot see anyway that he could return after this - if you want to stay you release a statement detailing that its all bollocks, not some media rubbis through an agent. I assume its possibly to do with a pay off negotiation or trying to avoid Northampton being liable for compensation which has led to this bizarre position.

We should be very disappointed by this as Wilders attempts to build their hopes then dash them back to mediocraty each year was wonderful to watch.
