Er why not Conks? IMO Jolley is an ultra cautious manager in that he focuses too much on the defensive aspect of the game.
Last season he led Grimsby to a goalless draw here at The Abbey and at the time (iirc) we were only one point better off the Mariners. What struck me at the time was that they had 10 men behind the ball all throughout the game. A strange game plan considering we were only a couple of places above them in the table and it seems he was doing the exact same thing at Barrow, or that's the impression I get from their fans on here anyway.
The only thing I'm reading into that Barrow statement is that the club saw such tactics were clearly not working, and they thought they'd better act now. The right thing to do IMO.
“It has become apparent even in such a short space of time that unfortunately the Board and Michael have differing visions for how the team should play, which has led to this change being made,” said Chairman Paul Hornby.
I would recommend any club to do some homework before appointing a manager.
