Rosler could be gone soon.

Simon Grayson must be under pressure at North End now.

2pts from last seven games.

Time to end the loyalty to the players that brought them up.

October is too early to be potting managers, you can only use it as an excuse for so long but we've really been done over by injuries and we have had a bout of general bad luck in some games (I.E. Wolves at home). Got to adjust to this new league but if we end the month winless then we've got to consider getting rid imo.

I fancy us to do ok in the two home games we have this month, if that doesn't happen then the pressure will mount, certainly.

I'd give him the season at least.

Out of interest, which players are you referring to?

People have been slating Will Keane since Saturday but for me Stevie May looks fucking shocking. Seen a few on PNE-Online saying he should start May against Cardiff, I don't get it.

Not sure I agree about giving him the season, if we're in the bottom three come Christmas, the football is still shit and we're not getting results at home then we should bin Grayson off.

Too early to write May off I think, we spent about a million on the guy so you've got to give him a run, regardless. Doyle can't play against Cardiff and Hugill looks knackered after twenty minutes (although he is a threat).

Keane shouldn't be in the team unless he's playing behind a front two imo, seems to have zero striking instincts but has ability. I'd rather have Reach, Johnson and Gallagher in the team ahead of him though.

Just as the PNE side now has been transformed from the days of Graham Westley I think we have to move on again.

The team clearly is lacking in all positions at the moment, leaking goals and not scoring enough at the other end.

For me the midfield is where PNE need to strengthen. Kilkenny for one would have to be replaced. Don't get me wrong he is a lovely footballer but Championship material?

Simon Grayson has done a terrific job up till now, but we are not coping with this step up in class.

When you look back to the Craig Brown / Billy Davies / David Moyes eras, we had more class in all departments.

Alexander, Mawene, Etuhu, McKenna, Lewis, Nugent, Healy.

I think that side, with McKenna (never been the same since he left) pulling the strings was a very good championship team.

I wouldn't disagree with that but a knee-jerk decision to sack the manager could hurt us more than it could benefit us at the moment, we need to wait a bit longer to see if any progress is being made.

Alan Irvine, was terrible - he pissed money up the wall and the football was shit but would he have taken us down? We opted for that joke Ferguson instead who had a decent CV at the time and he turned us into a defensive shambles.

Yes we have had some shocking managers since Brown/Moyes/Davies left.

We need to look at it again maybe at Christmas.

I do hope Grayson turns it around as he seems a decent manager and I hate it when managers become a victim of their own success.

But, the club is bigger than any manager and at the end of the day we want to support a good championship team with a chance of a top six place.

A return to League One so soon after promotion would be a disaster for the club.

You'd argue that Charlton have appointed someone.

Why is Clarke at Reading talking with Fulham? Seems a strange one. Must be the money Fulham can spend from the parachute payments?

Now he's been sacked, it all seems to make sense!

So far 9 clubs in the Championship have had a change of manager. Will we see any more go before Christmas?
