Everybody is overlooking the 10 year plan put forward by Darragh MacAnthony and his co-owners R Stewart Thompson and, Dr Jason Neale,
Fergie is part of the 10 year plan and it still has about 9 years to go.

DM will, imo, stick with him this season for his own credibility. I suspect, and hope, that he'll let him go for the third time in the '20/21 season and bring in someone new.
There has got to be a shed load of L1,L2 and other young managers around who would kill to have such talent? and money available.

I' think Fergie will still be here after his 3 year contract expires.

At least Evans for all his faults knew that if you get the ball up the front end the other team can't score.

For all his faults (& he does have many), Evans completely outdid our manager yesterday.

That's very worrying.

Nathan Jones is currently available. Would love to work with a club in League 1 with money to spend. He won't be available for long though.

On the bright side, if he sticks with the Diamond Merchant we are fairly safe from relegation, definitely won’t be going up and waiting for me next season are easy trips to Swindon, Exeter, and possibly two from Cheltenham, Forest Green and Plymouth. Winner,winner chicken dinner

A couple of points in it in a tight league during mid season and people are writing us off?
Tut-Tut. People should know better than that.

Mark Robins. Done a fantastic job at Coventry in difficult circumstances and on a low budget. I'm sure we could prize him away from Coventry. Young, enthusiastic and plays good football.

On 70 minutes, after a Gillingham player had been receiving attention, Reed (or was it Butler?) was ready to restart play with a throw-in, but was unable to do so because some of his team-mates were still having a drink at the touchline (important to avoid dehydration in England in January). The Gillingham players were all ready, and so was the referee, who gestured impatiently for the alfresco drinks session to end.

On 90 minutes, with Ward waiting to come on, Brown strolled casually to the sideline, pausing to exchange hugs with Toney. Presumably we were still interested in pursuing a win at that point, but one wouldn't have known it from the players' actions.

After the game, apparently untroubled by any thoughts of his generally sloppy and maladroit performance, Kent was enthusiastic in laughing with and greeting (with hugs, naturally) some of his (presumed) friends in the opposition . It might have been more diplomatic of him to have saved this display of cheerful bonhomie until after he'd left the pitch.

This team deserves a little exposure to Roy Keane.

We seem to put a high value on players at this club of ours, but not on managers!
