Assuming Marshall is still going with Garner, seems like he'll need an assistant or two.

Fine by me.
Welcome to the roller coaster Scott, or should that be welcome back?

Continuity is good.
He would have been in prime position to take the mental "wouldn't have done it like that Ben" notes.
Some good recruitment coupled with doing it a bit better than Garner & we should be fine.

If the behind the scenes setup is right then a head coach isn't necessarily the main cog in the machine with this type of model these days.

Maybe the mentality of fans needs to change vis a vis traditional manager v head coach scenario? Don't know.

One overriding view that won't change is, Scott, whatever you do, don't fuck it up.

Please Scott at least dont make the defenders piss around fannying about with the ball when sometimes a hoof into touch will be the better option rather than passing it between 2 statues or a short ball back to the goalkeeper putting him under pressure.

Otherwise as you were.

I cannot believe its taken this long to get here. A Lee Power move done at a slugs pace.

I'll back him, but fuck me Clem. It was all the disappointment of a cheap option and it wasn't even quick to put us out of our misery. Unbelievable.

Club News
BREAKING: Scott Lindsey appointed as Town's new Head Coach
Reds have a new man at the helm
Swindon Town Football Club are delighted to announce the appointment of Scott Lindsey as our new
First-Team Head Coach.

Following a thorough and diligent search, Lindsey emerged as the ideal candidate to lead the Reds forward.

Highly-regarded and respected by everyone who has worked under him, Lindsey offers Town some crucial continuity having served as Assistant Manager under former Head Coach Ben Garner last season.

As a result, Lindsey already knows the current squad inside out, he has close working relationships with those currently inside the club and is fully on board with our preferred way of playing.

Lindsey was instrumental in instilling the brand of football that spearheaded Town's success last year, and his promotion to Head Coach will ensure there isn't any change in direction to the way the team will look to play.

Furthermore, Lindsey is in lockstep with Technical Director Sandro Di Michele's philosophies and vision when it comes to recruitment and the direction the club wants to head in.

Having reached the EFL Sky Bet League Two Playoffs in 2021-22 and with a strong core in place, the club felt it was crucial to keep some level of continuity in place in order to give the team the best possible chance of competing for promotion in 2022-23.

Lindsey brings that quality in abundance, and he also boasts a proven track record when it comes to spotting talent and developing it, with current Town player Ellis Iandolo the perfect example having been brought to SN1 by Lindsey in 2015.

With a passion for the club and the local area, Lindsey ticks all of the boxes and we feel strongly he is the perfect man to lead Swindon Town into an exciting new era.

Sandro Di Michele, Town's Technical Director, said: "We have a clear philosophy on how we want this football club to operate and over the last 12 months Scott Lindsey has played a key role in shaping that.

Scott clearly believes in a possession based, attacking brand of football and he fully supports our data lead recruitment strategy.

He is hugely respected by the players and has been integral to their development. All these factors made Scott the standout choice and I’m incredibly excited for the future of Swindon Town Football Club with Scott as Head Coach.”

Following his appointment, Scott Lindsey expressed his delight at getting the opportunity to manage the club.

It means a lot to me to be the Head Coach of this fantastic football club,” he said.

There’s some great people behind the scenes working here, and you only had to look at last season to see how well supported this club is, averaging nearly 10,000 people every week, which is amazing for this standard of football.

Away from home the following was just incredible, so to be Head Coach of this club with that kind of following is just fantastic and I’m really looking forward to it.

The club wanted some continuity going forward and they don’t want to go too far away from how we play, so that was an important factor.

It is big for me and my family. I worked here back in 2015 as the Youth Coach, I then came back with Ben (Garner) as the Assistant Manager last year and my family have really embraced it. My children all go in the Town End for most home games, and try to get to a lot of the away games too, so it is a really proud moment for me.”

Swindon Town CEO, Rob Angus, said: “We’re really pleased that Scott has agreed to become Head Coach of our club, providing continuity, and he is someone who can develop and improve our players, and more importantly, believes in the way we like to play.

He has fully bought into our football strategy. He knows our club inside and out and I am sure with Scott at the helm we have a great future ahead of us.

Positive news as far as I am concerned. He already knows the players and obviously works well with McKirdy which might not have been the case with a new coach.  He is less likely to walk away in a years time Garner-style and seems settled at the club.  

I'll never know all that has gone on these past few weeks, most of it is just bullshit rumours in any case.  Nor do I particularly care either, lets just move on and enjoy the ride.  

I'll leave the negativity to certain others!

Assuming we keep a similar personnel roster as we did last year, with some obvious improvements now we have some actual stability and time to analyse, target, and go in for players (whether on frees or loan, I'm not, and nobody should be, expecting big money transfers, we're in L2 and trying to be sustainable), I think we'll have a god shot again this year.

Obviously keeping the core of the team is important, the new manager is obviously a known element to the players and backroom staff so provides some stability, even if it's underwhelming for some.

As I've said before, Swindon typically do better with unproven managers than we do with old cloggers. If we play like we did at our best last year, can't see a lot able to touch us. I don't expect that though, because It's Swindon Town.

I'm still hopeful for cadds as a coach.

He is far less inspiring than either Wellens or Garner.

Wellens was a very good player, who you could believe had a good understanding of players and whats required. His stint at Oldham was better than it looked given conditions.

Garner was a career coach essentially, someone who had coached at big clubs, and while his rovers stint like Wellens, was not great, it was under tough conditions.

Lindsey had no real playing career, his coaching has been far more limited in experience and standard to that of Garners.

If he was the stand out candidate, it doesn't take this long to appoint him.

On the outside it looks a really cheap choice honestly and does absolutely nothing to inspire ahead of next season.

I can't help but have a nagging feeling that the last part of Sandro's comment here has a lot of meaning. 'Scott clearly believes in a possession based, attacking brand of football and he fully supports our data lead recruitment strategy.' The first two almost all coaches would support, get the feeling not many candidates fully supported the 'data led' element. Just a hunch.

Still he gets my support, lets see how we rebuild the squad. Hopefully he gets to bring a coach in. Otherwise it feels really cheep if its just the other Scott.

Hopefully adds some continuity from last season.
Hopefully the players had a good relationship with him and this *might* tempt them to stay.

Having worked primarily in the lower leagues don’t know what contacts he has (particularly for Premiet League youngsters)
Is he Garner lite or will he have his own ideas? Do we want him to have his own ideas? Or be Garner lite?


Honestly, such a long process to appoint someone who was already here. That to me (rightly or wrong) screams we didn’t get our top targets.

Be interesting to see who gets his old job as assistant. To save Clem time, I’ll do it if he can match my Royal Mail wage…

Underwhelmed but not unsupportive. Would have personally preferred someone younger and with experience behind the scenes at the top level - that was seemingly what the club wanted but not what the club delivered (which goes back to the not first choice)

Like any new manager he needs to hit the ground running. Let’s be brutally honest here after last season, us as fans (and the press as well I imagine) will be expecting us to challenge. The free hit, no pre season, embargo, just happy to have a club has to stop now.

We need to start moving towards. Top to bottom & I honestly don’t fucking care whose in what job as long as start moving forward and move away from being a L1 / L2 yo-yo team because these bottom two divisions are fucking shit and we’ve been here way too long. They don’t even have any novelty value anymore.


In summation - just win some fucking football games. Simple.


Title: Re: Scott Lindsey- New Manager thread
Post by: singingiiiffy on Monday, June 20, 2022, 16:11:42
to take 3 weeks to recruit someone already on the books is quite frankly ridiculous especially when preseason is usually such valuable time.
the fear with this appointment is that there is already no new buzz around the manager and it wont take a long before a few bad results make the situation very awkward.

genuinely the only positive is continuity and hopefully the players enjoyed working with scott. wish him all the best as with every town manager. hmm

Post by: Batch on Monday, June 20, 2022, 16:14:56
4 weeks of rejections, then panic give it to the assistant*. Inspiring stuff.

But its a results business. Lets see what he's about on the pitch. And I don't mean give him 3 games then moan!

My expectations are unchanged. We must be pushing for autos. We'll see what December brings.

*other interpretations are available.

That is a massive red flag to me.

"Do as your told."

Clem, Sandro. If you want to be the manager so much, why not fucking take on the job and stop appointing coaches to be the fall guy in case it goes wrong.

Could have got many of us on here if he just wants someone to play the football he's told to and put the cones out during the week.

If we had appointed the assistant manager of a team that made the playoffs last season would we have gone all “doom & gloom”?   Probably not.

Had we have appointed him straight away, that would have been worse to me, surely they needed to interview several other candidates first.

I, like most, will assume that our top candidate (if not more) didn’t accept the job, so if Scott was the next best option then fair enough.

Like any other manager (bar Steve Evans), I will back him but it does feel like a “best of the rest” appointment

If you follow a process of interviewing candidates, there was some feed dragging over Charlton, could be some legit reasons for the delay. He is in post now, and to be honest I hadn't heard of any other managers we had since Di Canio (bar lingy).

Let's see who he can bring in and let's hope for a good start.

Post by: Frigby Daser on Monday, June 20, 2022, 16:43:04
It is not just that it’s uninspiring. It’s that it does not make sense. It’s anti-Moneyball isn’t it? Assistants typically do not succeed when they take over at the same club. They may of course go on elsewhere and do well, but not going from no 2 to no 1 at the same club. I’m sure there’s data on it….(anyone?).

When you appoint an assistant there is an overwhelming sense that he has been appointed (I) not because he was the best candidate, but because he was simply here anyway and (II) that we are getting a diluted version of what we had last year. Everything we had then, minus Garner. After a month of being in limbo, and not moving forwards, you need a statement of intent, to show ambition. We’ve got Diet 2021/2. And not Dennis Wise moving aside for Gus Poyet (yes, I know he didn’t) or Gorman replacing Hoddle. We’ve got the former manager of Chatham Town, whose CV would not have made anybody take notice if he was not already employed by the club.

Then there are the lingering doubts that it is indicative of deeper problems and money is guiding everything, and there’s none of it. Add that to Zavier Austin, convicted money launderer, posing in photos now (and his ever-escalating presence) and this is suddenly not quite what we were sold by the new regime when they took over.

What can resolve doubts? Remove Austin from any involvement in the club (won’t happen) and sign some players, ideally not from Chatham Town, but of the Reed and Williams calibre.

Worried and in need of a lift. And hoping this ages terribly.

Some room to accommodate Caddis on the coaching staff would be welcome, but all well & good if the 2 Scott's can take the strain & any savings are recycled into the playing budget.

Some good examples of people with a less than stellar playing career going on to make a mark in coaching.

As always, even with due diligence every managerial appointment is still a risk with no guarantees.

As fans it would be good to pick up where we left off towards the end of last season.

Looking forward to the fixtures & some positive news on contract renewals.

I thought he spoke pretty well and said pretty much what we thought he would.

Hopefully he will engage the fans more than Garner ever did or even tried.

Has a few of his own ideas about aggression on the pitch and attacking with speed, something we missed under Garner at times, certainly the aggression side of it.

I can see why Clem decided to appoint Lindsey as apparently most of the players last season said that the dressing room was the best they had ever experienced, so its continuity and hopefully will keep a few of the OOC players and get some in to compliment the players we already have.

It's obviously a 'meh' appointment. No need to dress it up any other way. I'm just happy we have somebody in the building, the other thread was getting pretty angsty!

Whilst on the subject of not dressing things up the assistant is likely to send some over the edge apparently. He won't disclose a name but he's from the lower echelons of the league/non-league pyramid.

My thought is that of recent managerial appointments, many of us (if I recall the TEF threads at the time) were more positive about Brown, Flitcroft or McGreal than we were about Wellens and Garner - but we all know which two of those five turned out to be the better appointments.
I just hope Lindsey hasn’t said “it’s Swindon Town!” In his first interview.

Hopefully the relationships from last season will encourage the likes of Egbo and Payne to sign again, and he will know how to make McKirdy tick (an outsider may not).

Looking forward now to the new (or re) signings being announced.

Some people have posted that “promoting assistants never works” - more accurate to say that it can work and has on occasions. Some have cited examples of it not working already, equally there are some which worked rather well - Bob Paisley and Joe Fagan being the best examples of that.

Not sure though if that “leaves no stone unturned” whilst finding a Manager.

Positives - The players appear to like him and know him and no matter what I will still support the Club.

Underwhelmed? yes, Suicidal? No Surprised? No.
Let’s get some positivity now with some decent signings.

Well apart from Phil Brown and Sheridan as a player - but most of our managers since the glory days I've had no clue who they were when appointed. He knows the players, was around for a successful season so let's hope he hits the ground running.

One day my wife brought up the fact that Churchill had one and you have never seen someone swivel on a dime so fast... apparently it was different if you were in the armed forces!

Fantastic haha. Older generations really fucking hated people with tattoos, didn't they? People being judged like that seems to be going by the wayside though. Although I think in Japan until quite recently you were basically considered Yakuza if you had one.

Sorry just doesn’t stack up for me, his CV has nothing in it that says 1st team coach and a 3 year deal is just a nonsense. Rightly or wrongly it feels like we were have either got desperate, ended up with staff we had nothing else we could do anything with after they didn’t go to Charlton or a combination of both. It seems his main credentials that are emphasised is people like him and he’s local, other than that on paper he seems to tick no boxes. The fact it has taken 4 weeks to end up he raised alarm bells for me.

I’m going to be controversial here and say do Angus and Clem have any better idea then most people on here when it comes to managers as Garner was Chorley’s choice previously.

Going to need some massive signings to get any positivity out of this, if this was under Power people would be losing their shit and when it comes to on the pitch stuff the same standards apply!

Totally understandable too, can't blame fans thinking like this. Disagree about Garner though, many were saying the same last year at the appoitments.

Either way, it's done now. Be interesting to see who we bring in

Whilst on the subject of not dressing things up the assistant is likely to send some over the edge apparently. He won't disclose a name but he's from the lower echelons of the league/non-league pyramid.

does anyone give a fuck about the assistant manager (cone gatherer)?

it would be great for it to be someone who has managerial experience in or close to the league

I think a period of realization now needs to set in, we are not this big club that will attract the names that was being circulated around. The fans themselves got all carried away by following betting odds from the bookies (why? the betting market is dictated by betting behavior) and the media which did not have a clue either and random rumors. Some of the fans got their knickers in a twist over Sol Campbell. Because of the hype, the expectation of a Carrick type of name was in abundance.

The club did not say anything, they went about the business quietly and hopefully diligently. Comparing this to Hoddle and Gorman is just silly. As if Garner is some football genius who was a tactical wizard (He wasn't)

Now we will find out, who was really responsible for the season we had last season. Now the club can continue as you were

The Macari appointment was so long ago it's from an entirely different era when relatively high profile players needed to work after their playing careers because they weren't all multi millionaires.

The other two name players would have struggled to get bigger clubs as their first job because of their deserved reputations for being a pain in the arse. Their later stellar careers elsewhere indicate why.

Sturrock was starting his trajectory downwards after failure at Southampton and Wendies, and we were clearly headed for L1 that season.

Yes, and someone like Macari these days would be going to a club in the Championship or Premiership! He was the equivalent of Rooney, Gerrard, Viera, Arsenal manager, Burnley manager (who's names I forget as I have little interest in Premiership).

To be fair that's overstating Macari's profile as a player. He played for United at a bit of a low period for them. The only league title they won in his time was in the second division. He might have an FA cup winners medal but not much more.

this kind of thing is where I think the trust and transparency are failing.

Initial thoughts on 'involved' would be financial. But it could be anything from recommending players to being the £2m long term debtor.

No problem with Clem, he seems a nice but the more you see the more it just looks like a rearrangement of the deck chairs from the outside with the likes of Austin & Standing lurking in the background. I wouldn’t be surprised to see Standing the actual ‘owner’ at the end of all this and that won’t sit well with me as he’s got us into some significant trouble.

I’m surprised the Trust haven’t reined him in yet - and I say that as respectfully as possible as I know he’s well meaning but he hasn’t helped manage fans’ expectations in recent weeks.

Around the wider ‘too close to the club’ debate - I think it’s a valid argument. I’ve always thought the Trust should play the role of ‘friendly agitators’ (as they did brilliantly with Power) but they appear far too close with the club now to properly hold them to account.

Edit - the Million Pound Man beat me to it on my second point!

Upon reflection I’d also add that the trust should be asking those kinds of questions automatically, without the need to be pressed to do so, in the interests of good governance of the football club

In regards to being open and transparent I’d also expect any involvement to be acknowledged *somewhere* - even if it’s as little in the advisory board action notes referencing the FA charge

Again, based on rumour and conjecture etc.

https://t.co/evfVkXDkFL

Didn't think he cave across that badly at all.
The only piece which did stick was he said we will go and do aggressive attacking possession based football. Close down quicker and win the ball back quicker. Then when asked what his main role was, the defence, keeping the space and shape. That is a worry because we were very stand off last year and this was his area of operation.
Time will tell, he may just be a rough diamond himself and move us along nicely

I'm still pro trust to get the ground purchase done - part ownership of the ground for fan groups will be more important long term than anything else the trust can do in the short term. I also totally appreciate that interpersonally the senior trust bods who have worked with RA for years are going to be close to the club.

I think distance will come with time and with natural generational change at the top of the trust. I imagine a lot of the current board want to see the CG purchase done and will see that as a natural stopping point. If that means being very vocally pro Clem beyond the natural level of support until it's done then maybe that's the means to the end.

Its hardly surprising that the Trust are close to the club, they have had to enter into a JV to buy the ground.

So in summary of this thread and its predecessor, a large proportion of the fan base have no confidence in the new manager*, little confidence in the Trust or the owners of the club.

Its going to be a right giggle of a summer and season this isn't it.

* Thing is with SL, so much negative has ben said about the guy already I can see no way that those who said it can row back without admitting that they were wrong, something that human beings generally really struggle with, so he may as well pack up and go home now.

Thanks Jimmy. I like the sound of what we are looking to do on the pitch. Hopefully more of the same as last season, with more tempo and more attacking threat as well as less pissing about at the back for pissing about at the back's sake.

I found the Di Michele interview interesting although I'm not convinced I believe him. His spin basically was that since he has walked through the door Scott Lindsey for him has been the best candidate. If that's the case, then absolutely superb and we have to trust Di Michele knows what he is doing.

The next step is getting the out of contract players to commit and then bring in new blood for our promotion assault. Although it was also evident that neither man stuck their neck out to say we'd try and get out of league 2 this season, just that we would be 'competitive' on the pitch.


Title: Re: Scott Lindsey- New Manager thread
Post by: Jimmy QuitMoaning on Tuesday, June 21, 2022, 08:41:09
I'm the same Bob slightly sceptical regarding Sandro as he's only been here a couple of weeks or so and it's hard to believe that Lindsey was the outstanding candidate for the job. The other thing I don't think it's been mentioned is how did he end up at STFC if he was successful at Wigan as I can't believe we would be paying him a huge salary or his services.

Thing is people wouldn’t actually be wrong would they? People are making judgements based on the facts at hand and his CV and based on that the appointment makes little sense, if it works great but that doesn’t mean the current concerns aren’t legitimate or ‘wrong’.

I also don’t get the 3 year deal for a rookie, I’m assuming there is a break clause if it isn’t working?

By naming him now (dont care what was said on the wireless yesterday) its obvious he was'nt the number one target. Name him earlier and give a few weeks head start IMO. :sherlock:

Anyway...

He knows the players and the Club set up which i hope will be a huge advantage to him.

He defo wont get as much slack as Garner got last season for sure.

Best of luck to him. Lets get some players in and a get an Auto spot.....please!!!

its almost as if you arent ultra positive happy clapping about everything you arent supporting the club.

criticisms and awkward questions are born out of love for this club and wanting us to be better in every single way on and off the pitch, if we all just sat here and trusted everything were being told & accepted 'theyre doing their best' then we wouldnt have a club to follow.

we're all town and we all want success- scrutiny is needed to achieve that.

Exactly this. Some of our fans need to familiarise themselves with toxic positivity, because its a thing.

The thing that makes me laugh is when we were going up under Power with Eoin Doyle scoring every week, people who hated Power and wanted him out were mocked and shouted down and told to concentrate on what was happening on the pitch. The same people were the "At least we've got a club" merchants whenever someone complained about Garners tactical ineptness last season.

So which is it? Boardroom or Pitch or just whichever allows you to bury your head away from nasty negativity?

We've definitely got a section of a fan base that are moany cunts, but a big section of our fan base just cannot hear any form of negativity so much to the point that they'd rather not live in reality sometimes and I genuinely do wonder where their line is. We were joking yesterday about Graham Rix as Manager and signing Adam Johnson just to push some of these people and see if you'll get a squeak out of them.

Most of the time it isn't arguing a counter point though, is it? Its just mocking people or complaining about them being negative....or my favourite: completely misunderstanding the reason people are unhappy and then arguing against something totally different, which happens a lot around here.

If it was that simple i would agree with you but when you start saying people would defend the Rix appointment or Sandro is a bullshitter and you don't trust him because he says something you disagree with I think it's fair people have a pop from time to time in exactly the same way it's fair you do at people who defend the indefensible

6 weeks ? (we all knew Garner was going so why wasn't the club speaking to coaches unofficially) to appoint the assistant suggests they was being turned down.

Need to hope they hit the ground running with their new data system of finding players as well, its all change but time will tell if it is for the good.

Egbo was low hanging fruit for Garner.  Only on a short contract of convenience, not put roots down, probably not sorted out property in the area, openly stated that he wanted a higher level and his recent history shows that he thinks he should be playing higher.  Egbo has little or no affiliation with STFC or the fans or the area.

Like taking candy from a baby for Garner this one.  The others will be more challenging though not improbable.  If he wants McKirdy, Williams or Reed he has to pay a transfer fee.  If he wants Payne he will have to pay him ~£5k pw, and convince him that Charlton are not the basket case we know them to be.  I can't see anyone else that he would want at L1 level, and there are only so many of our players that he could nab before the Charlton fans clock the fact that he is building a squad full of L2 players and have more outrage than our new new manager thread.

Long ball specialist.
Quote
Day integrated a "long-ball" style of play into the team, and although it was effective against lower ranked sides, the team struggled to maintain possession against better opposition. However, Day's tactics helped Bangladesh earn hard fought draws against India and Afghanistan during the 2023 AFC Asian Cup and 2022 World Cup joint qualifiers Day was placed on leave soon after the qualifiers.

It may have been horses for course but its polar opposite of how Scott suggested how we will play this season.

His Twitter is full of vids he's liked or retweeted based around possession building up from the back. So possession based may well be his preferred style, but has ultimately worked under managers in the past who have implemented long ball styles, mainly Pennock. Which if anything could be a benefit for plan B or faster progression up the pitch.

To a certain extent that is correct, you either buy players to suit your prefered style (at this level anyway) or you change your style to suit the players available to you.

Look at Lincoln under Cowley, they had a team of hoofers and niggly nasty players so they played that way, admittedly he never changed that style at Hudderfield and it cost him his job after under 1 season.

Us under Macari in Div 4....teams back then played hoofball and put a lot of high balls into our box...so Macari buys a huge commanding keeper who wasnt the best at shot stopping but could claim high crosses....it worked....we also has less talented players that were fitter than any team in all 4 leagues so we used that to win games in the last 10 mins due to fitness level.

The fitness element is slowly being eradicated from the game unfortunately.  Next season with 5 subs you can effectively just have all your attacking players go full pelt and when they tire a little replace them all and then go again. Great for teams with money and big squads, a massive disadvantage for those without.

There is a chance they take the head of strength and conditioning guy from us also as I think he is one of Garner's bois. (could be others I guess)

This modern football trope that teams need an identity and should try to play a set way is fucking bollocks if you ask me (I’m aware no one did)

Do what you need to do to win football matches.

Did Sir Alex Ferguson worry about his teams identity and style of play in the 90s? Did he bollocks, he tried to win football matches and he did alright with that to be fair

The thing is, a lot of the goals we scored looked great when watching replays - 20-odd passes, most going nowhere, finishing with a goal. Problem being people only remember the final pass or 2 and are bored shitless watching the previous 18.

I want to get out of my seat. I want sustained pressure with the crowd baying - sucking the ball into the net.

Agreed with this. My favourite football to watch is high press, high energy with balls being swung into the box. We didn't do any of that near enough last year

Yes, break with pace down the wings get balls into the box and actually have a fucking shot when within 25 yards of goal hoping for rebounds if the keeper gets to them, we barely shot from outside of 15 yards last season other than a couple of Reed free kicks, constantly trying to walk the ball in the net.

Fill the defence with blockers, tacklers and headers of the ball and not just passing defenders, who win the ball and  give it to the midfielders to instigate attacks and use wingers/strikers to break with speed.

I don't even care if we don't utilise corners as long as we stop THEM from scoring at corners, a real weakness we have had for a couple of seasons.

Lindsey wants agression when off the ball and fast attacks when on the ball....which on paper sounds good.

I had a dark thought.

I still can’t quite get my head around the departures from the CG. We were very close to promotion this year and an extra shove this season would, in all probability, get us up.

Why leave? Chorley, why? Garner, why? The 2 Scotts (wanted to), why?

A promotion on your CV gets credit in the bank when it comes to future jobs. Embargo lifted, extra budget, club on the up, crowds massively increased. Bumming around at Charlton with a few extra quid? Really?

What if there’s something hurtling down the road that gave everybody the heeby jeebies?

What if there’s an FA points deduction coming?

Stop worrying so much. Garner got a better job offer, higher division, assume higher wages and closer to home, so no brainer for him.

It's normal for the coaches from previous to join at a new club, so nothing to worry about them looking like they were going to go.

Chorley, still going to see what he does next, wasn't the talk of him joining his old mate Wellens?

Alex Ferguson was at one of the biggest clubs in the world with a huge transfer budget and ridiculous YTS system. It's easy to not worry about it if you're at the top of the food chain.

Given how high the turnover of managers, players & staff are in the lower leagues (well, could argue all 4 leagues) then having an "identity" or "brand" helps keep continuity & consistency without losing too much momentum. It also makes us more attractive to Premier League clubs. I know we all hate loans, but the gap even between Premier League U23 teams and the Football League continues to get wider and to utilise these relationships is key for success now in Leagues 1 & 2. If you have lots of money then you don't have to worry about it - we don't! When we did it nearly crippled us.

It's why Southampton, Brentford & the likes remain successful despite selling most of their best players and losing managers. It's the way things are, I know we like to bang our fists and demand the old ways back but the world is moving on.

Garner went to Charlton because he has roots there and a opportunity came up for him to work with people he knows. Plus it's an opportunity for him to manage a team in a higher division so can't blame him.
So say Chorley was leaving at the end of the season butwe'll never know if this was true or not.
Speculation about the Scotts going was all paper talk was it actually confirmed?
What's done is done, no point on dwelling on last season we have to move on

I really struggle to see the most talented team in the league. We had a very good midfield and that was about it.

Not a prolific striker, and even worse after January. Defence was poor and keepers were decent. It was nowhere near our team under Wellens.

It’s a myth, much like the ‘we had a top three quality squad’ line which was being peddled by a few on Twitter when Garner left - we went through the season with only one senior striker ffs!

It was a brilliantly assembled side in the circumstances of last summers shit show - but we fell short for a reason.

The club have done loads right under Clem, don't get me wrong, the Advisory Board, working with the Trust etc (Who don't seem to be 'hard' enough to ask the tough questions) things on the face of it seem very rosey.

I’ve allowed myself to get caught up in the off field issues once again and vowed I wouldn’t. Just want to support this club without another shit storm to have to consider.

I think the Zav Pakistan thing is similar to the Andrew Fitton kick back. I think it's a vanity project that he hopes to unearth a gem and get a kickback from.

These are just my own personal thoughts but i think they have realised that they can run the club properly and not dodgy as such and make a profit. I have no doubt that if the plan goes as it should for them they will sell the club in a few years to people they believe have more money. There is no way there is enough money at this level to operate and also keep people like Austin Standing Hart happy like the rumours will have us believe

Just my take on things
