I never thought I'd yearn for the days of Mark Cooper, but God, do we need a manager. Someone to take charge and take some responsibility.
Meh... Cooper was clueless as well and was happy to blame anybody accept himself. It's become apparent that the players he and therefore Williams had available flattered to deceive on their ability to manage and coach. We've pretty much had 4 years without a manager capabale of mixing things up and having a basic grasp on game management including when to make subs etc.

I agree and for me this was a major concern with his management, he never ever took the blame, fucking hell he even blamed the fans for one defeat saying the negative atmosphere made us not play to our potential....Williams is on par and I wouldn't want Cooper back ever.

Cooper's final match at Millwall still haunts me to this day....right up there with the worse town performances I have witnessed yet we somehow escaped without a hammering.

The chink of light I have is that he at least gave Cooper the boot. I'm assuming Power was at the game today so seeing as it was blindingly obvious to everyone else in the stadium that Williams was utterly clueless then Power must have seen it as well.

We can only pray.

It's been mentioned about Power not wanting to pay up a 5 year deal....surely someone as shrewd as him would have all manner of get out clauses to avoid that situation? I'd be amazed if not but I just cannot understand how Williams remains in a job.

This is what I was thinking, there is no way Power would not have an escape clause in Williams contract, its just not his way of doing things.

Had Luke been put out of his misery in October, when it was fairly obvious the present situation was likely to unfold, then I think a proper manager could have come in and Luke returned to his coaching position without a problem. Now though, it's too late, it's a shame but the fella has lost all credibilty with the fans.

I doubt we'd have to pay up anymore than a year of LW's contract if we were to sack him. LP paid Ling's contract up until the end even though he wasn't obliged to. Makes me think there's more to it than just simply getting rid of LW as it's quite obvious to all that it should have been done some time ago.

Probably the most pointless appointment I can remember. Was clearly done to appease the fans and it hasn't worked. What exactly does this bloke do? Those Chelsea lads brought in, for instance, will have had fuck all to do with him. His money would be better spent on a decent footballer for the team.

that's directly apposed to what power said, he said all the signings in Jan were Sherwood - including the Chelsea trio

it's worse than pointless, he's got another load of lightweight kids who were not what we needed, and a player whose type we did need but who has been left out the squad.

Yeah, Power says a lot of things. Like that he doesn't know about the debts, "ask the accountants". Yeah, right.

Jimmy Fraser and Ian Howell both at Chelsea are previous coaches at Swindon and are pally with Jeremy Newton. Also Adi viveash is there too. Would have got those lads regardless of Sherwood in my opinion.
