Just goes to show that new managers (and players) should always be given a chance.

Reading back at some comments (Batch Smiley) has brightened my lunch time.

Richie Wellens has now managed 36 League games at STFC (which includes the 0-4 home drubbing by Carlisle in his first game):

Overall - P 36, W 15, D 12, L 9, F 54, A 42, GD +12, Pts 57, Clean Sheets 10, Fail to Score 10, points per game 1.58
Home - P 18, W 8, D 5, L 5, F 28, A 21, GD +7, Pts 29, Clean Sheets 5, Fail to Score 6, points per game 1.61
Away - P 18, W 7, D 7, L 4, F 26, A 21, GD +5, Pts 28, Clean Sheets 5, Fail to Score 4, points per game 1.56

The away record has remained very strong under Wellens (continuing theme from Flitcroft/Brown) - losing only 4 out of 18.

The home record is improving, and this is the most encouraging thing for me. With two "proper" goal-scorers in Doyle and Yates now on board, think we'll win a lot more tight games, where last year we racked up the draws under Wellens. Ultimately cost us 7th place?

Here's the home record in the 14 games before Wellens arrival (part of the reason why the County Ground was such a glum place!)...

P 14, W 3, D 7, L 4, F 15, A 17, Pts 16, Clean Sheets 4, Fail to Score 6, Points per game 1.14 (this is staggeringly bad for STFC at this level of English football).

So... full credit to Richie Wellens and the Social Media/Comms/Ticketing people at STFC for turning round the atmosphere at home (and the away support has swelled also). Further acid tests to come with home games against Macclesfield Town on Saturday, followed by Colchester Utd on Tuesday. We do still seem to have a home Tuesday blind spot, with frustrating 0-1 defeats featuring prominently through recent years.

COYR!

It's also been obvious that the comments insisting this was a return to Power taking full control were wide of the mark.  Wellens certainly seems to be his own man.  However, it does seem they have a good relationship, shown by the Doyle signing.

Exactly right - Power has without doubt taken a step back from day to day team matters whilst remaining closely enough in touch to act straight away when the situation dictates i.e. the Doyle signing which I'm pretty sure will prove to be a defining moment in the season.

I’d imagine that while Wellens was out of work and turned down for this job (sure that Power would have told him he was his preferred choice outside of giving the job to Brown) Wellens would have had plenty of time to look at players all over the place and follow our ‘ahem progress’ and put together a plan from training to recruitment to match day tactics etc. So when the phone call came he was in prime position to tell Power exactly how it needed to be should he be offered the job. “Lee, I have a cunning plan. Have a look at this will you?” Boom, we have a new manager who know what’s what and how to go about it.

With vacancies available and sackings happening I dont like seeing this thread on the most recent list. Would hate to think the next manager recruitment process all over again.

And i know that this post has contributed to putting it back at the top!
