Is it outlandish to suggest that, if he is still in post, Sandro does some fan engagement via the OSC or BBC Wilts? He said he was going to...

His total disappearance, including from social media, doesn't say much for his character if he is staying.

It is easy to forget that Chorley was also very involved with putting the 19/20 L2 champions team together as well!

Jewell DoF and Chorley Chief Scout I think…

And are we saying that, from a purely football perspective, the club was better run under Power? Because the answer is yes.

The fairly major problem with his version of ‘the model’ was that the proceeds were siphoned off into a Swiss bank account!

Clem's been pretty quiet for a while now as well hasn't he?

Depends on the abuse he may have be getting. Were the SM accounts club related? If so the club may have advised him to leave or disabled them.

Let’s break the period Ralph has been here.

He came in from nowhere, nothing on his CV said he should be in such a position at the club. He spouted all the bollocks about data but what was absent from day one was any seeming talk of being successful on the pitch and promotion, it was all player sales that he cared about.

Then we had the Lindsey debacle. Seemingly every approach we made fell through the moment a candidate spoke with him. He then tried to fob us off with the laughable claim that Lindsey was always first choice and the best man for the job.

Preseason was a shambles, no organisation and just amateur. We then put together a squad that had the majority of us questioning the balance and our fears have born out.

We showed utter contempt for cup competitions, some of that must have gone through Ralph due to the potential financial implications.

Then January came along and if we thought the Summer was a mess he managed to take it to a whole different level. The Lindsey debacle ensued where he couldn’t even come out and tell us Lindsey had left. When he did speak he came out again basically saying he’s not interested in results and just cares about player sales. This resulted Clem and Angus going into damage limitation mode and Ralph doing a forced interview where he had to mention promotion.

The manager search was again a shambles and took until the end of January to complete leaving the new manager no time to sort the squad out. All experience including the captain were got rid off and replaced with young players who clearly aren’t ready to play and then there was at least one signing that we somehow missed the deadline on.

The players we have brought in recently who can cut it (Austin and McEachran) were brought in by Clem and Morris respectively. The fact that Clem had to step in at all says it all about his faith in Ralph.

There have been no redeeming features to his time at the club and whoever did appoint him needs their involvement in the football side of the club questioning.

Ralph isn’t responsible for everything of course, the club has an aura of an amateur non-league club being ran by volunteers. On and off the pitch we are an absolute shambles. But Ralph is in charge of footballing operations so the buck stops with him on the pitch and going back to the start of this rant there is nothing in the public domain that remotely suggests he should have even been considered for the job here let alone got it.

Sadly it appears from a football perspective you're  right it was run better under power but then he couldn't be trusted with the funds.

Someone I know close to the club recently told me that Clem is too bought into the data driven side and to not expect Sandro to go anywhere soon. I really hope that changes or Clem can see he needs someone with football experience involved to manage him.

Wellens always talked about trying to sign players with 100+ league games under their belt so they are not learning the game in your team.

We have recruited too many without that experience so if we stick with these players we need to hope they push on next season.

Of course, Flitcroft went for experience and signed a load of has beens. None of that experienced cohort really came off apart from Matty Taylor and Paul Mullins post Swindon career.

Sometimes it's can just click like it did for Wellens. Anthony Grant had been bombed out a few clubs, Eoin Doyle wasn't scoring for Bradford and Caddis was without a club but they blended with the youngsters.

That Flitcroft team would absolutely hammer us.

Norris, Richards, Smith, Lancashire, Preston and Linganzi in the air. Hussey and Taylors deliveries throughout the season.

It was a tough watch but at the time of him jumping ship, we were in the playoffs.

It was at least nice to have a sense of anticipation when we got a corner.

Says it all how shit we are now when I'd rather have that squad.

I get fed up reading other teams change their tactics when they play us because we have a lot of the ball....how about we start changing to throw the opposition.
