    Fook all those loans back to where they came from.

    Start playing the kids (like Stephenson) who will be the backbone of our side next year.

    And yes fuck Slade off!

    Slade was never a good appointment, I said on the day it wpuld end bad and if anything hearing him talk about the game makes the appointment even more astonishing. But here we go again another manager search is very much on and rightly so but within 6 months it will be on again.

    The club is ran so poorly that no manager would have much chance of sustained sucess. We are built to survive not to progress and that is fact. TF doesn't hide it, doesn't deny it, in fact seems proud to talk without feeling or compassion towards what he is overseeing. We are doing the same every week, month and year but expecting a different outcome, that truly is the sign of madness.

    There's no guarantee that if we appoint now there won't be demands for his head in days /weeks.

    We been doing that since premiership games. Playing kids cause they r cheap. Look where that gets u. You win nothing with kids without experience and the spine of quality players. We r fucked.

    No chance Stevenson won't be wasting his career in division 4

    Totally agree. All the decent kids with any talent will be out the door. We start div2 with has beens and raw kids. Relegation fodder in other words. Sisu speciality.

    Let's be real here (aside from the fact that I'll be pretending we have sensible owners).

    We have roughly £2m worth of talent that will be on their way out in the summer plus wages.

    We need 4 or 5 players 24-28 years old who can form the spine of the team. GK CB DM ST, then you could hang a few kids and loans from the Prem/Championship and youngsters like Jones off that and we'd be OK. Would need a decent coach and a manager who can infuse a proper style. That's enough cash to do that properly and should be our aim.

    Instead we'll get a bunch of second rate loans, older fuckers eating up the wage bill and offering fuck all plus a bunch of our kids. Probably lead by any fucker who will take the job.

    Yes he does actually, you talk out your arse, check CCFC's results from when he was appointed manager 14TH March 2011. Think you'll find you're wrong.

    Totally agree. Really is not good enough. Change it now and get a manager that is at least going to be here next season and can at least see what's to go with . If they keep Slade next season god help us. National league beckons.

    In typical Sisu style, Slade was the cheap option.

    This season we've had 3 of the shitest managers I've experienced in one season.

    In all fairness I'm sure there were cheaper options e.g. Ricketts, lower division managers, youth manager etc.

    It's just another wrong choice.

    Thorn has an 18% win ratio - Slade has 21% according to my reckoning.

    This is the thing. I'd be all for next season's man coming in early so long as it was made abundantly clear that this was an appointment to get ready for League 2 and the inevitable relegation isn't credited to him but the mess he's been appointed to clear up.

    All three managers are at fault this season.

    Says it all when the best manager we've had this season is Venus!

    I agree but I can't see how anybody can come in and forward plan as they will have no idea on playing budget as season ticket sales look a bit iffy next year.

    Thorn beat Watford, Portsmouth and Millwall is his first 6 games in charge. How many league games has Slade won?

    1-0 Bury. I've given Slade enough time. I think he needs to go if we lose this one.

    ...oh bollocks it's 2-0

    Sheridan and Clarke haven't had as much time to plan an Slades had but they seem to be making a fist of getting Oldham and Bury out of trouble.

    Must go.
    Slade playing all 6 players he has brought in tonight. Clarke, Rawson, Foley, Beavan, Vernan and Reilly Are they better than Harries, DKE, Haynes, Stevenson, Bigi and Jones ?

    Yeah, same here pretty much. I wasn't that keen when he was mentioned, but when you look at his stats he has done well elsewhere.

    I just don't see how you can bring in 8 players and make the team worse.
