No thanks. Don't think he's quite proven with the Vision and their millions, plus I don't think he'd have the northern connections we need. I'm backing Harvey in his quest to gain a full-time role with us.

Yep, not proven. A monkey could have done it with the money he's had. Plus, he's tainted by association with the sort of hobby club that is wrecking non league. The board know the fans wouldn't stand for him and after ballsing up 2 of the 3 appointments they made so far since the club reformed they know they're on final notice. :lac:

yeh im sure every Wrexham, Lincoln, Luton etc fan will tell you all about the managers they have had and given money to, who have all failed miserably.
Its no guarantee of anything. Hilly will get you results. He will get the players working as a team and ive no doubt whatsoever would pull you up the league, without or without any money. Hes a winner and he makes his players become winners.
Strikes me you are going down. Id wager heavily that with Hilly in charge you wouldnt finish anywhere near the bottom 3.
Still, carry on as you are with your head in the sand, im sure a BIG CLUB like you will enjoy the Conf North.

I'm not sure we've given money to any manager?

If that's the case, and he's sooo good, why isn't he still with you?

Proof there that you really don't know shit - our budget has not eclipsed £500K since coming down here.

You really are just a terrible poster, you're not even that good at being a wind-up.

He was always a complete twat whenever we came up against him, which probably makes him a good bloke to have on our side. If he can deliver more days like Saturday we'll take him. :dk:

Tbf, I think we had half a season of a better than average budget, which Tilson spunked, then Holdsworth came in and his remit was keep us up and knock 50% off the budget.

But yeah, our budget has never been great, which I still can't get my head round considering our attendances but Sincil Bank is killing us really.

There are far bigger twats around then Jim. Plays good football and is happy to come and have a drink with the fans, whatever the result. Just don't let him near a golf course.

Pro tip: if your going to continue with the pretence that FGR are a real club, you need to stop referring to club staff by their first names. :whistle:

Nope, he was not going to get the sack at all. The owner spent 3 hours trying to talk him out of resigning.
He also declined the offer from the owner of a pay off fee for all he had done for the club.
You see, some managers and people are decent, they just do what they see as the decent thing & the right thing for the club.
Hilly felt he had done all he can and that the football club needed a fresh approach.

Sounds like he realised If a club is to be sustained it must be allowed to grow organically, and can't be *hothoused* into becoming a real club. :£

Nope, read it three times and still can't find the punchline. If you really believe that, you need to give your head a wobble.

"Would you like some money?" "No thanks, my work here is done so now I must leave without payment"

What planet are you on?
More probable that the chairman handed him a wad of cash and said "let's call it a resignation so we both come out of this looking good, yeah?"

Why don't you read what i wrote as fact, rather than make up your own BS.

I know if I ever "resigned" from my job and was offered a golden handshake, I certainly wouldn't turn it down.

Flippin' heck I agree with every word in the first two sentences of this post. I could have managed Eastleigh to the Conference South title in 13/14 given the budget Hill had

Kind of reminds me of Brian Talbot's record with us. Wonder if he's still managing in Malta after screwing things up heavily in every job since Diamonds.
