He does have a strange turn of phrase in interviews.

referring to keeping the club up he uses ‘them’ instead of ‘us’ i.e. ‘if I keep them up I’d have done a terrific job’

Sorry to be a total dullard, but should Power move aside, who are the collaberation of new owners and investors? And what kind of money are we talking?

Standing, Barry, Clem etc.......................

I assume these guys have slightly more football business acumen than Jed and his band of merry Pontins employees.

And who knows who else might be in the mix? I would not be surprised if we are taken over by a name that not been mentioned yet.

Anyone who is already involved - Clem, Barry, Standing - will want what they perceive as their due. Clem probably notsomuch as he’s been sorted. If it’s right that the other 2 have put up to £6m in-the club since Power took over who’s going to pay them off? Although, I presume, they have been repaid some of that along the way re their share of any transfer income.

I may be wrong but isn't the argument over 1.5m not 6.

Has Clem ben on the blower...  :D

WRT potential other suitors, are the septics still knocking about, coincidentally yesterday when I was rooting about trying to find a date for the next Standing v. Power hearing,  I read a summary from a legal guy of the initial case, that seemed to suggest that part of the reason the Judge threw out Powers arguments was that he thought the £7.5m American takeover was unlikely to happen, I don't recall that?

They may be arguing over that but they reckon they’ve put £6m in total since Power took over.

There's different figures being bandied about. It's hard to know which one is correct - they can't all be right.


Title: Re: Has he gone yet?
Post by: Shrivvy Road on Thursday, January 28, 2021, 11:35:49
It's in the documents i believe at just over 1m so i am assuming that the figure that matters

Court papers seem to suggest that Standing has put in over £6m in investments and loans, but as it stood he was owed £3.7m (Para 18 of Judgement).

His initial investment was £800k at take over plus an extra £75k to pay off Black on the Richie sale (or so he thought) which suggests he has put in c. £5m post Power taking over.

That was said in relation to the fortification application. Further details should emerge at the trial of Standing's claim if/when that happens.

Will be interesting to see how it develops, if it follows the last hearing Standing will put in a proper case on time with evidence which will be countered with conjecture and the back of a fag packet, submitted late.

Post by: JBZ on Thursday, January 28, 2021, 12:27:50
The trial will be different.  All the documents and witness statements etc should have been exchanged some time ago.  However, it is not unheard of for a party to amend/change their case shortly before trial so that could happen.

i think Judge Rinder should preside seeing as it’s a civil matter. Is any dirty linen likely to be washed? Is there any advantage in racking up legal costs fighting a slam dunk case? What if either party doesn’t like the outcome - hopefully not a protracted appeal.

The club will be dead by then.

I posted my own crackpot theory a few days ago. A L2 club with a £1.5m wage cap that can knock around the promotion area with crowds of 6000+ would leave enough money to siphon off into somebody’s arse pocket. The income from fans alone would be around £2.5m.

Anybody buying anything wants to get it at the lowest possible price.

I don't really know the logic for keeping him here. The fact that we've signed a few players and they still need to get to become 'his team'? I feel like we have to pray to every deity there is that this works because I don't think Power will sack him.

The scary thing is even if Power does sack him, I don't trust that we'll get a decent replacement.

I don't really know the logic for keeping him here. The fact that we've signed a few players and they still need to get to become 'his team'? I feel like we have to pray to every deity there is that this works because I don't think Power will sack him.

The scary thing is even if Power does sack him, I don't trust that we'll get a decent replacement.

My hunch is that ownership issues will be sorted sooner rather than later - and that Power doesn't want to get rid of him yet so that somebody else can pick up the bill for paying off Sheridan's contract.

It seems to me very much like a rehash of the Sir William Patey Paul Hart era at the end of Andrew Black's time, but over a protracted period.

I don't understand where all of this money is coming from to finance Travers, Thompson, Freeman, Omotoye, a possible midfielder and striker. (And also Palmer and Twine as Wigan and Newport will no longer be paying) But presumably a combination of Sheridan, Wright and Jewell want these players instead of what we already have at the club. Surely you don't go on a spending spree and then sack the manager?

Black/Patey didn't move Hart on until we were down. His objective was to keep us up for the next owners. We played defensive shit (very badly I might add) and created nothing.

Now replace Black/Patey with Power and Hart with Sheridan in the above para and you get where I fear we are now.

If it hastened Sheridan leaving I would take 2 defeats in a row now TBH, if a draw today keeps him employed for a further 3 weeks I want us to lose.

I don't think I have ever felt that way before that I actually would possibly prefer us to lose.

In reality though I would prefer a win and then Sheridan leave when the takeover is completed so they take us over in a better position in the table.

I know what you are saying, but if Sheridan saves us from relegation, it means that he will have found some way for us to stop conceding goals, but at the same time enabling us to create chances and score goals.

With the strike force we have we need multiple chances to score a goal. So, if we only won every game 1-0 then we would be playing much of the game in the opposition half and he would have improved the team from where it is now.

If he'd improved the team substantially from where it is now, both we and the media wouldn't be on his back about apparently crazy things that he is doing, which is hampering our chances of being successful.

Anyway, none of that is likely going to happen, so, Mr Sheridan, its a 'no' from me!

I don’t think Sheridan is going anywhere irrespective of results. Power has seemingly gone AWOL and checked out. And whatever the results, he’ll go when Power goes I suspect - because a new owner may just want... a bit of positivity...

It won't happen ASAP but hopefully it will happen in the next few weeks when we go on a longer losing streak.

Tommy is doing his best under difficult circumstances, he is doing his job and Sheridans in fronting the interviews when Sheridan can't be bothered, fair fucks to him for doing it and coaching the team to the best of his ability.

No manager should shirk interviews pre or post match unless for totally unforseen circumstances (as happened with his parents) otherwise he should man up and not talk down to his interviewer constantly and buck pass to players when he is obviously at fault himself. Its pure derision on his part.

How many players have got worse the longer he's spent with them? Twine and Thompson's best performances were against Ipswich, where arguably they hadn't had enough time with Sheridan for him to implement his 'tactics'.

I think (and it's purely my own thoughts not an ITK representation from the inner thoughts of LP), if Power knows deep down that he will lose his case... surely would it not be "better" for him to delay the process for as long as he possibly can? This may seem counter productive on initial viewing as costs will rise. However, if he hasn't any personal cashflow he likely couldn't afford the costs of a few milk bottle tops right now.

An element of can kicking and a "cry for help" which is why he's done his little public "save us" speech. The longer he drags the case on, the more time he has to find some mugs hustle a new avenue of cash-flow. Which is why he appears to be clamouring (almost embarrassingly so) at claiming the "Americorns" are still interested.

From my view, the trouble is LP has probably always been considered somewhat as a "hot potato" within wealthier circles the issue he has now is that the "potato" is glowing deep cherry red and anyone with at least a couple of brain cells will not want to touch him.

Any deal has to be with him not retaining any involvement whatsoever, Shirley Bassey?

Think that boat has sailed, FH. The Idontgiveafuckasaurus has been stinking the club out from the time he arrived - any normal owner wouldn’t have employed him in the first place. He won’t sack him now. There’s no upside for Power. Money to pay him off and, tbh, what sort of replacement would we likely get until all the shenanigans have been sorted.

It’s all tied into one thing - new owners. Until then it’s as you were. Most clubs sleepwalk to relegation. We seem to be embracing it on the marching powder!

2017-18 - league two 9th
2018-19 - league two 13th
2019-20 - league two 1st (promoted)

The first couple of seasons under Power the strategy seemed to be invest in young players like Luongo and Byrne who they could sell on for a decent fee.

With Tactics Tim leaving Spurs the supply of ex Spurs youngsters dried up and after missing out on promotion in 2014/15 it was time to cash out.

You wonder now how much the original strategy was funded by Barry/Standing and as the trust with Power has broken down the funding has dried up.

I don't know, he is a local lad and a Town fan apparently so I'm sure he'd like nothing better than to progress and succeed here. Failing that, if he does have to move, could see him signing a Steve Mildenhall-style contract and sign for someone else a day later so the club get some money for him (yes I know they'll get some anyway because he's under 24)

Swindon made two changes to the side that beat Wigan Athletic 1-0 on Tuesday night.

Due to Dion Conroy's one-game suspension, Rob Hunt came in at right-back while Akin Odimayo shifted into his favoured centre-back role.

Meanwhile, there was a debut for winger Jordon Garrick in place of Tyler Smith, who completely missed out on the squad. New signing, Christopher Missilou started on the bench.

Actually, you could take the audio from Sheridan today and play it to film of the team finding their spots and getting sorted on the bus, would probably work quite well.  "Payney, where the fuck are you going?"

"Get forward" - as Palmer tries to work his way to the back of the bus

"Catch it, fucking catch it" as Sheridan chucks some snacks at Travers

"you're not fucking there" Sheridan gets angry as Payne tries to take the front passenger seat by the door

You da think it’s today or never. I don’t think it matters muchly who takes over - him going would be a huge lift.

Doubt any manager worth his salt would want to walk into this shit storm - nobody for a 2-3 month stint anyway. Let the season end, take the relegation hit and start from there.

Is there a usual time for these kind of announcements? Grant A tweets ‘he ain’t crying’.

I think it really has to be prior to the Rovers game, another team completely devoid of confidence and being setup not to lose.

Get Sheridan out and replace him with anyone internally, perhaps just until the end of the season. Be it Mildy, Peacock, Alan Mac, bring Noel Hunt back in for example. These players must be absolutely shot to pieces playing this kind of anti-football that Sheridan is adopting. Let the new guy come in and take the shackles off of these players, get them playing football again. There is little point in having the attacking threat of Omotoye and Garrick if you are going to totally bypass them all the time. Get them utilised properly, they are here to learn how to play the game FFS. I'm sure the Swansea and Norwich management team must be aghast to see their loanees being utilised so pathetically.

Power has a chance to save our league 1 status by making that call over the next few days. These players need a shot in the arm, getting rid of Sheridan is that boost.

Thank goodness the Curran thing was either overruled or your source was wrong

edit: not having a go, appreciate the info you post, it's just that is been worrying me since you posted!

Shows how out of touch Sheriden was, he didn't realise Conroy was available until yesterday......

Source has Said virtually all the loanees want to return to parent clubs..
Smith wanted too in January, Thompson not happy he's being told not to play his natural game, Masters on and Travers not happy with Sheridens methods..

Brett, Brett, Brett, Brett Pitman, Brett Pitman now refusing to talk or listen to Sheriden.....

No idea where you get this information from, but this does sound like the old 'losing the dressing room'. Although I sense he probably lost it some time ago.

In a relegation dogfight you want to rely on your experienced players, Hunt, Caddis, Grant etc. Grant is the leader in this side that you need to be with you to scrap and fight for these points, as he did last season when we won the league. To have him as an outcast now is ridiculous.

According to this: https://www.eadt.co.uk/sport/huge-wage-gap-in-efl-revealed-2663302, the average league 1 wage for managers is around 180k. You'd think we'd be at or above that line. Taking that figure, it would cost Power 78k for Power to pay off 4 months.

If it is a lot less (say, 100k), that figure will be closer to 43k. That's still a lot to pay out for something when you can just leave it to somebody else to do instead.

They could come to an agreement to a lower payout, but with the brontosaurus unlikely to have anything lined up, why would he?

Every club in the land will be similar. He should go due to his results and the fact he clearly doesn't have the dressing room but rollicking players and swearing, give me a break...

Regardless of language, he's in a performance related business where the performance of his peers around him have not been great and they are being relieved of their duties. Sheridan is currently performing worse than all of them. There are perfect grounds for dismissal based upon that alone.

As for professional conduct or professional approach (or lack of) to his performance related role that is another story. There is plenty of evidence available to to relieve him right now.

I can't think of any if many jobs in a PRP based role where he would still be in a job. I'm pretty certain if I were measuring his performance since he came into the role, against any pre-agreed objectives then at a monthly appraisal, after seeing continual decline...he would be relieved of his duties. I'm sure if an appeal was made that the CIPD would fully back the evidence and reasons given for fairly dismissing him.

I suggest we minimise the cost even further by replacing him with someone else with the same initials. At least that way we’ll get some use out of his effing coat.

I'm not ITK but I've said it before, Power won't be sacking JS.  JS doesn't care either way anyway.  

Power plainly won't save us and Sheridan plainly can't save us.  Unfortunately there is nothing that leads me to believe there is the level of leadership or respect in our senior players to take over.  We look rudderless.

Otherwise the least that could be done would be for the players to persuade Curran to declare himself unfit.  On top of our playing concerns, that situation has been an insult to the club's sporting integrity.

The rot has well and truly set in. It's clear to see. No real structure to the side, and I'm buggered if I can see what our supposed style of play is meant to be. Also missing too many players in various ways. A negative manager who isn't really managing and obviously doesn't have the dressing room. The only hope is he goes now and someone more positive has enough to get us limping over the line. Sets the team up with a structure and tries to lift them. Otherwise the trap door beckons.

Brett is a "goal hanger" in old school terms, a role which can be great if played to its strengths....and therein lies the problem.

Brett, Brett, Brett, Brett Pitman, Brett Pitman has lost any pace he had but can still jump a bit but we persist in playing long balls to him, when thats not his game, it also doesn't compliment our team at all either. He does know where the goal is though when you get balls to him in the box.

We need players bombing down the wings getting crosses in for him, even if we persit on playing 451 as we seem to lately then stick Twine or Omotoye sat in just behind him in case of loose balls. Get Garrick wide right getting crosses in and Thompson going down the left, add Caddis on the right to support Garrick.

That way we could get Grant and Missilou sat in front of the back 4 breaking up play and starting moves, but keeping the ball on the deck down the wings which is what suits of players as we have pace there even if not bags of ability.

I think Grant and Caddis need to patch up any disagreements between them and the manager and lets see how Grant performs alongside another holding midfielder Missilou, it may lack creativity but all they need to do is cover the defence and start moves by passing to players who can creat things (even if Sheridan has done his best to get rid of those type players).

The pained expression and small skip of frustration with both hands held out wide before assuming the familiar slouch formation.

Love these sound bites from today's press conf:

I've managed for 15 years, i'm not a bad manager. One relegation in 15 years. I manage the way i manage. I don't have to change for people. They need to grow up. People might not agree with it. Players enjoy playing under me because i'm honest. If i'm not honest, i'm not being myself.

Do i think i should be sacked? No, because the chairman trusts me and i'm here for the fight.

There will be so many managers who get sacked before their team get relegated therefore avoid it on their CV. It’s such false economy.

Paul Bodin has a Swindon relegation on his CV with but Wilson and Hart don’t...

Here is the first three revolting ;)

Sheridan on Bristol Rovers:



"We had a video showing players the Bristol game and what they should expect and three of the players were late.



I regard that as a disciplinary matter and it has affected my team selection for tomorrow. They should know the importance of the game."

100% this, clearly Sheridan views the players respecting him and not stepping out of line as more important than Town staying in League 1.

Discipline is important and fines would be appropriate, but this for me is the proof that the foul-mouthed, obnoxious, painfully-bad-at-his-job-its-not-even-funny cunt doesn't give a fuck about Swindon Town FC.

Sadly this is the problem we have. We are Swindon Town not FGR or Cheltenham.

Di Canio Cup feats apart, the only achievements over the last 25 years have been promotions from tier 4.  There have been one or two good seasons and some great football and footballers to enjoy but any club will manage that.  

Whilst Tier 2 was punching above our weight (yet regarded as normal by many at the time), we should have been a tier 3 club to be reckoned with and at least aiming higher.

But as JBZ observes, the [occasional] ups and [frequent] downs may beat mediocrity.

Until recently I've been open-minded about Power but I hold him, far, far more than anyone else, responsible for our present predicament.  I have always said that the time to judge him would be at the time of his departure.  The fat lady seems now to be waiting in the wings.

It’s an odd one.

If he does keep us up - then there is very much the argument he has done exactly what was asked of him, so why wouldn’t you give him the following season. In theory no one gets sacked for meeting their targets

On the flip side, you have 16 years of Sheridans managerial career to look over and he’s certainly not one for progressing teams forward. It would be appear ugly partially effective football is his forte (and that’s usually they term forte very loosely) so long term I think it’s safe to say he isn’t the answer, assuming the question is ‘who can take this club forward’

Still a long way to go before he keeps us up, so we shouldn’t start getting too far ahead...

It would also take one hell of an argument for anyone to convince me that the 90 minutes against Crewe and the 45 minutes against Northampton were all part of the tactical masterplan. Lincoln was good.

Sheridan is not really a Swindon Town-type manager, or the kind any progressive club is likely to engage.  Very much echoes of John Hart for me.  For all the angst we have shared over the years, we have generally been quite progressive in our managerial appointments.  So regardless of the outcome of this season I would hope that he will have moved on by the start of next. 

Far more important, to me, is the question of ownership.   

I recall Sheridan as a highly skilled midfielder and could imagine myself being excited by his appointment in other circumstances, had he been 25 years younger.  20 years on, he obviously now realises he's never really achieved so much, even at our level.  However, he does keep getting the appointments, which is more than many aspiring managers achieve.

Sheridan admits to being hurt by the criticism (football manager not a great career choice perhaps?) and has of course lost both his parents over Christmas (https://www.swindonadvertiser.co.uk/sport/19100893.john-sheridan-admits-tough-switch-off-manager/).  Whilst we are still fighting for survival, every individual connected with the playing squad, inc. JS,  has my full support.

Good post and it's only the older supporting like us will remember that Sheriden was a classy midfield player so it's surprising that he didn't take that into management. Like you say if you don't like personal criticism maybe being a football manager is the wrong job but you have to give him respect for carrying on when he went through so much with both parents dying which would be hard for anyone to put up with.

But, looking back, progressive managerial appoints haven't yielded any further progress up the football pyramid.  If PDC is regarded as a progressive appointment, one has to acknowledge the fact that he appeared to have the benefit of unlimited funds.

Again, I am no Sheridan fan but if the club remains in the third tier then great.  If the results continue along current lines, why not give him another go

I suppose it all comes down to expectations.  I probably take a slightly more pragmatic approach.

Until someone comes in and sorts out the fundamentals that have plagued the club forever nothing much will change.

The Town End and Stratton Bank should have been consigned to history decades ago. The promise of a 50/50 ownership of the CG gives some hope on that front.

Any success this club has achieved in its history has never been built upon. We’ve lurched from success to disaster in short bursts of time. Some of our historical rivals have kicked on massively whilst we’ve stagnated - or, more truthfully, gone backwards.

Sadly, they are on a level that STFC is unlikely reach unless there is a substantial change in the club's fortunes.

I understand that other posters in the know consider that there are a number of suitors (of some means) who want to acquire STFC over any of the other struggling lower league clubs.  As someone who isn't in the know, I can't see it - but I hope to be surprised.

Sadly they might have stumbled on a solution with Pearson. Hopefully they'll miss out again and Pearson gets a premiership gig.

I cant believe I am reading people advocating that if Sheridan keeps us up then he should be given a go next season.

We are traditionally a club that likes to play football not hoofball, if he keeps us up well done he has done what he was brought into do and he can walk away with his nice little bonus in his back pocket and wait for the next club that needs someone with the tactics of a dinosaur for the fans to dislike.

Hopefully whatever division we are in we can appoint a young up and coming manager, we need to remember we will be used as a stepping stone until ownership is resolved, but the only way he (or she) can move on is if they gain success and get noticed and talked about, like Ritchie did.

Pretty much all of the people backing Sheridactyl and suggesting he is given longer have a history of being deliberately obtuse and posting just for a reaction, which they have got.

I will be grateful if he keeps us up but he shouldn't be here next season. He shouldn't really still be here this season given the dismal results (last 3 excepted), aimless hoofball and getting rid of any player with any talent. If Power wasn't skint he'd be long gone.

Again, I am no Sheridan fan but if the club remains in the third tier then great.  If the results continue along current lines, why not give him another go

If the current manager secures league one status for another year, I assume that he will be given a fair crack of the whip the following season.

There was another I think cant be fucked to look for it though.

I think Power appointed Sheridan purely to keep us up so I would be surprised if he gives him an extended contract, but who knows. Think you'd be mad to give him a summer AND an entire season and I think it'd hurt ST renewals (if it hasn't already).

Not necessarily. Have you seen how the club communicates things at present? The man at the top is ever vacated. Even when he was around he didn't give an interview to BBC Local.

You would think in normal times, yes they would know before joe public but with the club at present, they could easily be in the dark as much as us.

As for the vid, there is nothing there to suggest El Dino was present. Is it possible the person videoing is doing it for twitter clout and maybe the manager wasn't even there?

Personally, I just think the person filming it and posting it is no better than Kristian Crusty Cock. I notice he has shoehorned into the comments, to make himself relevant by adding "pint when I see you".

Agreed but I dont think he should have to put up with being harrasssd walking away from the stadium where anything could have happened. Inside the ground all fans are welcome to voice their opinions and any outside demonstrations would be policed and he would probably have been ushered away with protection from another entrance.

You would like to think it would be announced Sunday or Monday at the latest if it were to happen.

At least whoever directly takes over from Sheridan will have 4/5 days to set up tactics and impose their football style on the squad before our next game against Fleetwood next week.

Sheridan has to go because he basically admitted in the radio interview that he didn’t really know what to do to change our fortunes and improve things. In any other line of business he would be relieved of his duties or employed elsewhere within the business.

If he does stay then it shows Town’s absolute lack of ambition.

It shouldn’t be Sheridan’s decision to make - Power should have done this weeks ago.

This run of 4 defeats in a row isn’t any worse than what we’ve had before this season, so you’ve got to ask - why now.

It all seems to be coming to a head. News of Clem taking over with his comment of ‘restructuring management’ may have made it abundantly clear to Sheridan that he’s got no future and has decided to jump before being pushed.

The other option is that his comments yesterday may be yet another 2 fingered salute to the fans and he’s just taking the piss.

It's win-win for Power if he walks, even he must realise he has to go, probably known it for a while, this way, even if he's written the club off in his head, Power gets rid of a manager certain to take us back to L2 for free.

He probably knows at this stage we'd all rather an internal appointment of some kind than suffer Shez any longer, Wright probably follows him so that's two wages that no longer need paying and a small chance any change prompts an upturn in form and we avoid relegation.  L1 still has to be better than L2 from a business point of view, surely?

As for why now from Sheridan's pov, perhaps he simply wants to avoid another(?) relegation being on his cv so is actually being selfish?

Either way, let us all hope that we have the news that he is no longer an STFC employee later today, no point waiting until tomorrow, what a boost it would be for the players to know ahead of going to training in the morning.

The silence and pressure on Power now building.
Nowhere to hide and of Steve Anderson, nothing just nothing. Complete contempt to the paying Customer.
The biggest positive to come out of this week is virtually every Swindon fan will at last have a better view of Lee Power.s intentions of this football club - in it “100% for the money.”

My immediate concern is Power begging Sheridan to stay to deflect the focus from him.
Meanwhile his attention is all about maximising what else he can take before his final days as the walls close in on his underground business dealings.

What a sad state of affairs we are in.
Not renewing my season tickets or any more Corporate support until Power is gone. I think a fair few others have also made that decision.

Lets hope Sheridan does walk and Wright follow him out the door, and Monday Alan Mac & Lee Peacock are asked to take the 1st team until further notice.

I cant see how Power could appoint any new manager with a takeover in the offing (maybe), it would need Clems buy in to appoint the new manager and I don't think there is time to be messing about.

Problem is now Clem has released the details in public you can see Power digging in his heels and sticking 2 fingers up to Clem, after all he did make him go to court to get his 15%.

My fear is Power ignores Clems offer, and tells Sheridan he still has confidence in him to keep us up or gives the job to Wright.

If Sheridan does stay on you sense it could make him ill as he's been through a lot in his personal life which seems to be reflecting in his decision making and the way he seems to be reacting with certain players and snapping at the media. If he's not careful he could end up having a breakdown so it may be within his interest to step away from football in general for a whil irrespective whether power begs him to stay as it's only going to get worse st the club before it gets better. As for options you make a good point about appointing Peacock & Alan Mac or you could try and get someone like Holloway in for the remaining 11 games just like we did with Paul Hart.

There was, there must be a way to get around that though.  All parties agree to sell then argue over who is owed what after.  Can't imagine Standing/Barry/whoever else are too keen on holding on to any stake they do or do not have in the club.


Title: Re: Has he gone yet?
Post by: RedRag on Sunday, March 14, 2021, 13:47:09
I have to say it would be great if JS made the decision to resign himself.  For the fans, obviously but also to help turn the spotlight more revealingly onto the source of our problems, namely Lee Power, as well as for his own self respect.

Whilst I share the criticisms made of his management style and coaching, I believe the disrespect he has been shown has often been excessive.  In the way that it has spilled over from critique and frustration at his performance into quite personal vilification.  I think we can agree that his man management methods have been antiquated and disruptive and his coaching and tactics negative and unhelpful.

However, he has been 40 years now in the professional game with nearly 20 in management.  His management methods were likely never innovative.  20 years on, they are now antiquated.  BUT.  His methods have "worked" in all but the most recent times.  He has won the odd promotion and indeed play off spots as well as having steered struggling clubs to safety - as well as THAT Johnstone's Paints Trophy at Wembley.  He has done all of this with clubs even less reckonable than ourselves, Argyle aside.

My view is that he has been struggling for 3 or so years now.  He was certainly a square peg in a round hole here.  That will likely have helped pressage STFC's exit from this League and his own exit from management at this level.  3 or so years of failure for a manager in his late 50s is obviously a stressful personal situation, never mind the double bereavements.  I see no reason why he should not leave now, with his head held high, if he does so assuming responsibility for his own departure.  IMO, he's had a very decent career and will hopefully be able to look forward to different and better things.

As might STFC, once Lee Power is also out of the way.  Power could have removed Sheridan in January but didn't.  Sheridan would understandably have had a belief that he could bring about a rescue then.

So I presume if Clem offered £7mil and both parties Power and Standing/Barry felt that was an acceptable offer then Clem could become majority stakeholder?


Title: Re: Has he gone yet?
Post by: The Artist Formerly Known as Audrey on Sunday, March 14, 2021, 14:55:49
According to Clem he has offered in excess of the supposed £7.5m the American company, Able, offered last year - although I find that to be a very high value if the club (but what do I know). Maybe there is a hidden gem raising the value.

Making the figures easy - if Power has valued the club at £10m, he would want £8.5m as his share. As the kerfuffle between him and Standing is whether Standing actually owns 50% of Power’s 85% share of the club, both parties would clear £4.25m from the sale.

What we, or anybody else, doesn’t know is whether Power’s share has been diluted further by any side deals.


Title: Re: Has he gone yet?
Post by: JBZ on Sunday, March 14, 2021, 14:56:16

I suspect the "hidden gem" is hidden in plain sight - the training ground land with it's shiny new planning permission for houses. I'd guess that's also likely to be where any difference in valuation comes - Power thinks the club alone is worth the £7.5m the Americans supposedly offered, Morfuni has offered, let's say to illustrate the point, £8.5m to include the training ground land. So Morfuni can say he's offered more than the Americans and Power feels he's offered less (because the land with planning permission is worth more than the difference). All this is just guesswork but I suspect it's not a million miles off


Title: Re: Has he gone yet?
Post by: JBZ on Sunday, March 14, 2021, 15:12:59
I know nothing about Morfuni and he may well be the saviour that many think he might be.  However, I doubt that any interest is driven by altruistic reasons alone.  The detail of any alleged offer would make interesting reading (I assume this is not currently available).

Power has always said the training ground will go with the club. If Power decides not to sell Twelve Oaks with the club, he’ll be stuck with a plot of land that he won’t be able to build houses on without further costs and an awful lot of fighting.

Power says a lot of things. He won't be stuck with a plot of land he can't build houses on, he will have a very saleable plot of land he can sell to a developer for decent wedge because it has planning permission.

You’re right. Power isn’t going to build a training ground for a club he no longer owns.

This.

I read all through the court proceedings eventually glazing over at the intricacies involved into who actually owns what percentage and what monies have been loaned/paid/owed etc. etc.. When/If the training ground may also become a part of the whole shebang as well makes it a further muddying of the waters.

You have lost me on this. You suggested the training ground land could be included in the valuation of the club to help meet a high valuation.

I am sure any potential buyer of the club wouldn't be buying the club plus a plot of land for houses off power. It would only meet the needs of a buyer if it was a training ground.

Power has always said the training ground will go with the club. If Power decides not to sell Twelve Oaks with the club, he’ll be stuck with a plot of land that he won’t be able to build houses on without further costs and an awful lot of fighting. If he’s sensible, he’ll sell it off as job lot minus the horse stables.

As it stands Power has three plots of land eacgh with a seperate planning permission;

Racing stables which has nothing to do with the club, his aspirations for the club and would be of no interest to any buyer of the club, it does however form part of Powers wider interests albeit as noted above without gallops etc not reallysure of the point of it.

Site for 18 houses, will be worth a fair old wedge of cash, imagine it was argued that this was needed to cross fund the training ground but cannot see any sort of s.106 linking the two permissions so Power has probably got a relatively unfettered consent which will make his a fair bit of wonga.

Now the elephant in the room, the training facility. Power seems to have a few options here,

a) build it and get the club tied into a lease before he sells the club (Alternatively sell the club with a commitment from the new buyer to lease at an agreed rent when complete) - thus securing some on-going income from the club;

b) Include the land with PP within the sale of the club, albeit as the land is ownerd by L Power rather than STFC it would probably make sense for him to do this as a side sale to ensure that Clem et al don't benefit;

c) Hang on to the land to consider further options for it, with a bit of nous there is potential to get housing on it now.

We shall see.

It would be genuinely intriguing to see what they work on in training. because there is no substance in any match from set piece routines except Twine shooting. and no pattern of play to work into better positions on the pitch as it just goes long. Must just be heading and fitness!

And then they will both struggle next season. Their success sums up football in COVID times, you lose the advantage that you get with larger crowds (both financially and atmosphere) and gives a massive advantage to non entities like the Vegans and Cheltenham who get crowds of between 1k and 2k. Salford should be in that boat as well but Wellens is doing his best to ensure they miss out!

The club is rottent to the core now.

Power sees the club as nothing more than a money making exercise, he is playing a bidding war to raise the amunt he can now get after paying off Standing/Power/Black, denying there is any bid from Clem and stating that he has no more money (which is blatantly a lie) as he is just refusing to put any money into the club knowing he won't be owner for that much longer.

Sheridan is here because he is close mates with Power, again despite what he says. He has trolled the fans with his pathetic post match interview on Saturday, looking for sympathy, which he got - yet having no intention of leaving of his own accord as that means he will lose his last football related income as I doubt he will get another manager gig after this absolute shambles.

The ground is in a state of disrepair and will need money thrown at it before we get fans back in, off the pitch we are in a mess with Power seemingly refusing to invest anything into the staff/upkeep etc.

It seems pretty obvious that Wellens could see this happening hence his Northern Ratty body left the ship before it sunk.

I don't think for 1 minute that Power is deliberately running the club into the ground so we get relegated as surely it will be less appealing to future buyers if we are in a lower league and probably the sale figure would be considerably less.

Come on Lee Power come clean and just let the club sale go through before we are confirmed as relegated so we can get rid of this dinosaur managing us, before its too late.

For me, as I said in the pod, every single department of the club is under-gunned and under-resourced. Take the footballing side out of the equation, it's an SME with c. £5m revenue. Run it like a business.

Have a creative, modern, forward-thinking commercial department, sales department, marketing department, media department. Doesn't need to be expensive.

Not sure. Maybe Power just simply doesn't care about what happens to the club and is happy to see us go down.

If that's the case though it seems a weird stance to take given they're not due in court for around a year i believe? So you'd imagine he would want the financial benefit of league 1 away followings lining his pocket rather than the much lower numbers in League 2.

Possibly has a deal in place for a sale in the summer and wants to fuck the fans off with a relegation before he leaves.

Who knows! Nothing would surprise me at this stage.

Yeah no fans is bad financially but great if you want to carry on being a cunt with no accountability. I think Power would be well advised to get out before fans are allowed back in - probably be more toxic than ever before with the amount of frustration and anger building amongst the supporters. Though not sure if he even bothers to attend any more regardless.

My hunch in this hilarious situation is that Sheridan wants to jack it in, Power has asked everyone in the club who wants to fill in for a while, everyone has ducked their head and said ‘fuck no, I don’t want a relegation on my CV, especially as first proper management job’

So power has asked El Dinoden to hang around for a week so Power can rope some desperate fuckwit off the street to take over for half of what he’s paying out now and even then he’s struggling.

That, or Sheridan went home Saturday night laughing his bollacks off that everyone has swallowed his first class trolling hook, line and sinker.

I don't think he had any intention of quitting and did it to wind up the fanbase.
That does appear to be his aim, he clearly doesn't give a shit and by openly admitting he doesn't know what to do but still not leaving it will antagonise the fans even further. His sole aim seems to be to demonstrate how untouchable he is and that he won't be sacked no matter what he says or does...

Childish.. Maybe
A paddy... No not all

Well intended advice?... What advice would that be.?

I and other people have posted info I had heard that at the time was correct.... You can believe it or not..

As in life sometimes things change..

If you and other posters want to get bent out of shape because sometimes the info or circumstances change and what I or other people have posted does not happen grow up get over it and move on......

Be grateful some people do actually have and are willing to share what's going on in the club..

However for me and others that info will be kept to ourselves...

All cynical stuff aide, I really got the impression that most parties (club staff, local media, fans) felt that Sheridan was done on Saturday afternoon.

...but the two people who probably matter here, Power and Jewell, didn't force the issue or seemingly have any interest in forcing the issue.

I don't think Sheridan said what he did malicously or to potentially swerve difficult questions because those questions *will* come with or without the Advertiser. Sheridan probably thought 'fuck it' at Full-Time and then having slept on it changed his tune.

This issue, again, is the fact that Sheridan is (potentially) being allowed to 'sleep on it' and decide whether he wants to resign or not. This should have been out of his hands weeks/months ago.

Think you're spot on here Rich. He genuinely sounded despairing in the interview, and whether we think he's capable of trolling to that level or not, I certainly don't think he's that good an actor. I think he meant it on Saturday and subsequently changed his mind (or was persuaded to). Dave did a very good thread on this on Twitter:

Appears that way.
Power clearly not interested and knows the end is in sight thus why force the issue.
This won’t be forever and hoping this gets resolved sooner rather than later. Other claims are now being levied as to who owns further parts of the club.
We as Supporters simply have to sit this out and will pick it up once it bottoms out. How far that is simply depends on how quick a takeover is in place.

Not necessarily. Power et al could accept an offer, hand the club over to whoever and sort out who gets what over any time period they want.

The fact that Power has, eventually, become the chancy character a lot always though he was from the beginning, should really surprise nobody.

As has been said, it won’t last forever and I reckon we’re down if we get rid of Sheridactyl or not. Hopefully we’ll have a clean slate going forward into next season.

So are you suggesting there are more shareholders potentially than Power / Standing (Barry) / Morfuni

Does Black's debenture have to be resolved when the club is sold ?

I would guess for the club to be sold it will need Power & Standing to agree and come to and agreement on price or for a judge to rule the club can be sold and the moneys be put into an account by a solicitor until after the court case, this could be messy

It's possible, but somebody's unlikely to agree to buy a club with such potential issues attached. Somebody might end up paying a fuck ton only to find that they're not even the majority shareholder.

Although there's no reason why things can't be discussed among those involved behind the scenes, which I suspect is happening right now.

Post by: skiptotheLouMacari on Tuesday, March 16, 2021, 15:28:01
I've said before who I know and the relationship to Sheridan.
1. He took the job because he needed a job (his job at Wigan was either week by week or month by month basis therefore not guaranteed) and needed the guaranteed income.
2. He (Sheridan) isn't going to leave because that way there is no severance package, sack me you pay me, or I'll stay regardless. He doesn't have many other options his style and ability are some what lacking and as a result it is reflected on potential job offers or lack there of.
3. Power isn't prepared to take/accept any offer until he knows what league we're in next season. A form of roulette because if we go down so does the stock value of the club, but by some miracle we stay up the value remains. However is there a middle ground figure he would accept, who knows.

Sheridan will not walk away. The new owners, he knows won't keep him and Power can't afford to sack him.

It wouldn't cost much to sack him, even if contracted to end of June it would only be £20-30k tops which is nothing in comparison to the value loss of a relegation.  It's just a bizarre decision to keep him unless the takeover is imminent.

Its not just the £30k wages, its that plus another £30k to replace him in new manager wages.

For a club that is watching every penny and an owner that probably wont care if we are in L1 or L2 next season means we wont get rid of him until Power has left the building.

Power will not fork out £60k+ just to sack him.

The reverse in fact.

JS is not going to get another EFL manager's job.  At 56 and with 3  lean years on the trot,  he's on the scarpheap at that level.  

If it's going to cost him or Power, why would JS take the hit?

Decency, yes.  And he should've done this.

But to suggest he is trolling the fans.  What can he say.  I'm useless.  We are already relegated.  But I need the dosh for my family and retirement?

This is Power's doing

A couple of weeks ago, I remarked that there is absolutely nothing that Sheridan seems to be any good at. The worst thing about his failure to even throw the towel in properly is what it reveals about his mind.

He talks and acts without thinking through the consequences, which is a catastrophic failure for a coach, where the job is literally all about systems, organisation, practice, consistency. As we heard from his touchline comments, he just shouts what comes into his mind. There's just nothing there, not the vaguest hint of competence or suitability for the role.

With Saturday's little tantrums, he's binned his last shred of credibility. He should never be anywhere close to a coaching job again. He's fucked, Lee's fucked, we're all fucking fucked.

Deluded as well as incompetent. I bet he also thinks he has found a winning formula by starting with the team that finished the game Saturday. Don’t know whether to laugh or cry at everything STFC right now. How ironic with the Captain Pugwash theme tune playing Saturday.

True. I imagine Sheridan was holding out for a payout, which power won’t give. There’s 7 weeks left and if he’s on 2k a week that’s only 14k to pay (max). The club will lose out more on ifollow money when Sheridan is in charge. We’re not paying this weekend and I imagine others will follow suit

Football players and managers contracts run from the 1st of July they dont end when the season ends. So thats 15 weeks not 7, hence the posting earlier that the speculated contract will probably be worth about £30k based upon length left.

What’s the odds that Sheridan said I’ll fuck off if you pay me up and Power pissed himself laughing for a good 10minutes?

He says that we’re going to be attacking minded because we need to win games so that will be interesting to see if that means that he’s not being playing an attacking approach and wanted to lose or get draws...

The way I’d see it if I was Sheridan - we haven’t played well under him, we clearly cant defend. Surely if he’s not that bothered about being here (Saturday sounds like it), you ditch your philosophies and try something completely different and just go all out attack. You literally have nothing to lose.

However, this is not how he’ll think

After Sheridan’s post match on Saturday he can have zero credibility with the players (assuming he had any before that.)
The lack of a statement from the club is ridiculous- normally they would issue a vote of confidence or something similar.

But he (Sheridan) is 50% right when he says we don’t play kick and rush.
With Brett, Brett, Brett, Brett Pitman, Brett Pitman up front we only do the kick bit!

I think this season was always going to be Power’s last. The Standing/Barry/Clem debacle was all out in the public domain.

Covid dramatically reduced the amount of money Power could take out before he left, so the playing budget was slashed so he still got his wedge. Wellens could see the writing on the wall and legged it - he knew relegation was the likely conclusion to the season way back then.

That was another unexpected income stream for Power to pocket. Now, what calibre of replacement manager could he entice to SN1?

A complicit one. No questions asked, no expectations to be met, no complaining when any decent player was jettisoned, retirement beckoning so no worry about getting another job.

Sure, Sheridactyl has played his part, but Power has manoeuvred the club into this position.

Yeah I think you've hit the nail on the head here. I think we just have to make do until the end of the season and give him the support to try and do what he's been paid to do and keep us in league 1. What happens after the season's end?

Nobody has posted on here because it's blatantly obvious that no matter how bad the results were, unless he walked under his own fruition nothing was going to change, so this thread became irrelivant until either we got a new owner or his contract expires.

Sheridan deserves some credit for making the changes, but apart from putting Iandolo in at CB in a back 3, he has done nothing more than many fans have been suggesting.  Bringing our best player of last season back into the fold and playing more football is hardly out of the box - Iandolo i agree was though.

I'm not sure you're giving quite enough credit to how comprehensive some of those one-goal defeats were. Teams did just enough, because they were never in danger of us pegging them back. "A bit more adventure" wouldn't have covered the chasm in tactics and desire shown in those games.

I'd like to say you've been a bit harsh on Kovar but his hesitancy and general rootedness undermined the whole defence.  The only Permiership-esque thing about him in the early days was his footballing skills taking the ball out of the box.

Travers was half the footballer in the box but did everything "goalkeeper" says on the tin.  But the revolving door for keepers has clearly been unsettling for our defence.

I think Camp has an error or two in him but he's finally giving the defence the guidance it sorely needs.  Fingers crossed.

Possibly but I only comment on what I see, if you take Kovar on goalkeeping performances alone not his footwork (which did also cost us a goal or 2) then he is a very limited keeper, he never tried to command his area, he was obviously not taught to play that way and his basic shot stopping especially at the near post was awful as poor as I have seen.

Travers was 1st and foremost a solid goalkeeper, he came to collect crosses, he could shot stop and didnt flap at crosses as Kovar (for example) often did. Maybe his kicking wasn't quite as good but he never put himself or his defence under excess pressure trying to do things with the ball at his feet, he just cleared the ball.

Camp looks a huge improvement already, he has experience and is constantly talking his defenders throughout the game, helping their positioning, again something Kovar didn't ever do.

Camp is known to have a few errors in his locker but by no means to the level that Kovar and Fryer had.

Also Camp has 100% clean sheet record, which is 100% more clean sheets in just 2 games than Kovar did in 21 games.

We were over sold Kovars ability by United and Wellens oversold our defensive ability to United.

I think it may have to do with him being pretty young. I think if you blame anyone, it's Wellens pig headedness in choosing a keeper (as No.1 I'll add) that from early on, it was clear he was not ready to be a No.1.

I have no doubt that Kovar should have been coming to Town as a No.2 and being mentored by someone like Camp or (had Town retained him) LMc. Putting him in Paint Pot matches and then testing him in an FA Cup match (depending on oppo) and then a League match or two (again depending on oppo and importance).

The lad was simply mismanaged. Is he actually a shit keeper or was it more to do with the fact he just wasn't ready.

Agreed. No goalkeeping ability of any note whatsoever.

No on the contrary, I quite agree on the assessment of his ability. Where I disagree is purely on the "why defend him" part. I think given the parameters, even a dead Ray Charles would be able to see that he wasn't up to it and What I'd Say is that in every game it was a painful case of Here We Go Again...

I think it may have to do with him being pretty young. I think if you blame anyone, it's Wellens pig headedness in choosing a keeper (as No.1 I'll add) that from early on, it was clear he was not ready to be a No.1.

I have no doubt that Kovar should have been coming to Town as a No.2 and being mentored by someone like Camp or (had Town retained him) LMc. Putting him in Paint Pot matches and then testing him in an FA Cup match (depending on oppo) and then a League match or two (again depending on oppo and importance).

The lad was simply mismanaged. Is he actually a shit keeper or was it more to do with the fact he just wasn't ready. Time will tell and I hope one day we're all going "fuck me, that's that woolly fingers lad that played for us once" when he is lifting a trophy or playing higher up than Town are. After all, we know how it goes, everyone else kicks on eventually and achieves... meanwhile, Town continues to plod along in "Underachieversville" and still not realising it's full potential  ::)

I agree with you fella that Kovar should be coming in to get mentored and play in a few Pizza Hut challenge matches etc, but I'm pretty sure Man United are not going to loan a player to a Division 3 club on those terms. They need him to be playing first team games week in and week out. I've no idea about playing clauses etc for loans but I am pretty sure we would not have got him on loan if we were only going to play him in the Zenith Data tournament only and a handful of first team games if the senior keeper gets injured etc.

Wells touched on his in some interview somewhere.

Basically a total loan fee is agreed. Then a per game fee is agreed.

Each game played takes x amount off the total.

So if the loan fee was 50k and match fee was 1k. If the loan player plays 50 games he’d effectively be free.
If he played 2 games and sat on our bench he’d cost us 48k

Wellens explained that is the way most of the loans from the Prem clubs are now.  Last year it worked well ie. Benda played so much he effectively was free.  Trouble is when you got a shit player it cost you not to play them.

Higher clubs loan players out to lower clubs on the trust that the lower club will develop the player. So another way of looking at it is the less you develop the player, the more it costs you. That's the quid pro quo.

Stating the obvious but the clubs loaning out (young players in particular) want them to be playing otherwise what is the point?

Its common knowledge that we were offered Baxter at a reduced wage cost but still Wellens chose Kovar.

Accrington could not match the wages we were offering yet still bagged him after RW decided he would rather go for Kovar.

Agree with this - lots are quick to forget that the recruitment budget tap was effectively turned off and ultimately led to Wellens jumping ship.  Had the scenario been similar to last year, i don't think Wellens would have signed the majority of the players that he brought in this season - and he might have still been here.

Except - it was. From what I remember.

At first he was too much, so we went for Kovar instead. Chelsea then dropped the asking price (which is probably why Accrington can afford him) but Wellens chose to stick with Kovar instead.

I can't find where it was mentioned (maybe somebody else can), but I clearly remember it and it was a bit of a 'fuck you Chelsea, lolz' moment at the time. Unfortunately, it turned out the lolz were on us.

Kovar signed on 28th August, baxter signed for Accrington on 9th October.

Baxters last game for us was 15th August when Wellens was told of the availability of Kovar hence the hastily arranged training match between us and United on 18th August by which time Baxter had gone back to Chelsea.

Discussions continued between Swindon and Chelsea carried on and Derby and Sunderland were said to be interested so Chelsea stood by their guns on wages hoping that both would pay substantially more % of his wages than we would. Sunderland signed Matthews on 21st August and the Derby loan fell through then too.

Both those moves quickly disappeared and Chelsea then lowered their wage demands but Wellens played hard ball with Chelsea out of stubborness after they came back with a lower wage contribution demand.

On an aside....during the keeper crisis pre season we gave a trial to Alhaji Sesay in the game vs Melksham......a few days ago this happened, bullet dodged....

I see he’s calling out Conroy’s “fitness” today. To criticise a player who has fought back from two potentially career ending injuries is not good management. Injuries do not always occur becomes someone is “unfit”. And sometimes all the work in the world won’t fix you. Still hope the ignorant fool keeps us up, but he’ll still be ignorant.

I find it's a bit similar to how Wellens disregarded Scott Twine as having no future at the club. I'm sure the Salford Genius will now take full credit for showing "our Scott" the way.

Maybe El Dino is doing the same and then one day, when Conroy is leading out England* as captain, he can take all the credit and say "it woz me that gev im a kick up arse like, yoh no".

Think I remember referencing that he was quite lucky in some respects that the "covid curtailed" season happened, as it gave him the time to both recover from his injuries (ones that not many come back from in a professional capacity) and also still be in any plans. had the season carried on after last March and Town had a "normal" August start in L1 then I don't think Conroy would have been first choice.

I'll add, I'm glad he did though because there is a decent FL standard player in there and to get some extended time as a pro has been great for him but it could be that you are correct. Although some in L2 might take a punt on him if his future does indeed lay elsewhere.

I don't either, but I do agree with bamboo that even if he didn't say it directly, he did give the general impression of being completely dismissive of/uninterested in Scott Twine (and in fact our home grown players in general who he certainly did describe as not being up to standard).

He didn't directly but Twine was told this was his last chance to impress at Newport, gain some strength and play games, which is exactly what he did. Wellens never rated Twine, and on previous performances he was probably right in that assumption.

Newport though found a position for him in an advanced midfield/number 10 role and that suited Twine perfectly, previous managers tried him left midfield, left wing and even LB once, it was a case of finding which position suited his style of play rather than shoehorning him into a formation.

He was always very highly rated by the academy staff but considered to be too lightweight to maybe make the grade in league football, he had always been technically gifted, hence Wellens sending him to Newport to "bulk up" mentally and physically.


Title: Re: Has he gone yet?

And to Wellens' credit, it did the job admirably, even if he personally didn't rate him. Most credit to Twine himself though, he obviously backed himself and put the work in when I'd guess it would have been easy to go along with the manager's (and plenty of others) assumptions about him

Living in Bristol and not far from where the UWE Stadium would have been, the whole thing around the stadium went pop weeks before the new owner arrived. The land the Mem is on was being sold to Sainsbury’s to develop a new store but Sainsbury’s expansion plans didn’t represent growth in numbers to shareholders, the CEO basically got sacked and all resulted in pulling out. There was a court case to force Sainsbury’s to honour the contract but the court sided with Sainsbury’s.

The new owners came in and attempted to source finance for the new stadium but didn’t like the terms so pulled the plug on the lot of it.

The owner comes from a very rich family but that’s all in his parents name and all tied up in various other investments. The idea of Rovers being funded to the Championship was Rovers fans getting carried away with themselves. Just look our consortium with Fitton, Black and Co.. Said to be worth a combined £1billion at the time and it doesn’t necessarily result in investment on the pitch. Buying the club is owners attempting to build a successfully bigger business on a shoestring.

It has. I can't remember the team, but Fatbury of the TEF parish once got involved I think but he always was a bit of an odd character.

I think it failed.

Sure you all remember the fairly disastrous 55/56 season where we went without any manager at all, instead letting the players sort it out. Maybe we could give it another go ?

Maybe Power could do a better job than Sheriden after all he did manage for 3 games in 2013😀

The Ebbsfleet experience suggests that management is harder than we think it might be.

Maybe but I know an ex Republic of Ireland international who thought swapping his two centre halves with defenders after 88 minutes was a good tactical decision even when we were getting beat.

Tactics Tim anyone? That would be as bad as Sheridan.

I suppose 'right' investment is key. Despite the investment in Salford, STFC's former manager seems to have found life difficult at that club.

Wellens has the weird stat that he has still yet to actually officially complete a full season for any club. Has a relegation, Promotion, and Trophy to his name still

A rat would desert this ship.  So is the Sheridactyl actually a rat?  Me thinks not, just a dinsoaur without the brain to get out whilst he is so far behind.....

I thought creationists say his type were too thick to get on the Ark? In terms of brain power that would seem to fit
