Once again we fail to back a Manager when things go wrong. We brought him in last season, started of so well and everyone thought it was amazing. The second we started to lose a few, everyone turned on him and there's been a real lack of support since.

Can't wait to bring in another manager and repeat the exact same cycle again.

A manager must truly demonstrate that losing at Bloomfield Road is nothing more than a blip. Saunders, Robins, Cooper were unconvincing (which is the nicest summation of Saunders' time in charge I could've given)... Davis only got away with it because, well, Crewe.

Thought he may have the remainder of this season and another summer to work things out for next year. No such time given. Scunthorpe are in no danger of going down, so I'm slightly surprised. Losing by a bag full at Blackpool doesn't seem to help anyone out these days unfortunately.

Mark Cooper - he'll also get Michael Smith in.

I assume you guys aren't really a huge fan of his but Swindon played some absolutely beautiful football both games we played them last season, if he can bring that here than I don't mind.

As I said on the match thread, I didn't expect that. Rotherham, Barnsley, Huddersfield, us, anyone else want to give him a go?

I like the bloke. Hope he gets a new gig soon. Left to his own devices, though, I reckon he'd revert to hoofball.

Swann loves a sacking. He's going to end up like Trew at County.

Wouldn't want Adkins back if Sheff Utd sacked him and I hope they don't.

None of our fans would accept him but id love someone who cares about the club, Mark Lillis.

He's not getting sacked so I wouldn't worry about it

No danger of going down? we're only 6pts above the drop zone and we need a win asap, otherwise we're in big trouble.

Just seen Garry Monk at 25/1! :lol:

Surprised Hurst hasn't been given any initial odds. Gary Johnson would be nice for us, if you fancy doing your chums down the road a favour.

Appoint Cotterill, you won't regret it and you'll gain a new fan...

Wonder who that will be...

And me. Its just hard to know how much impact he had with the way we're structured as a club. Wish him well.

From the outside looking in, a bit knee jerk after Saturday's pummeling although pre-season made quite a few signings from teams like PNE so expected better.

I suspect Pauline Dickov is the lady for the job.

Go on Football Heaven and whinge about it then.
Can I not just whinge about it on here? I don't like how my voice sounds on the radio.
