Bit silly tho isn't it basing a decision on one game if that's true. Even if we won on Sunday I wouldn't feel Carlos is the right man for the job and that is from what's happened in 2.5 years, not 90 minutes

 

But I do want the team to win on Sunday 

Absolutely right. 

 

A defeat tomorrow doesn't make him the wrong man just like a victory doesn't make him the right one. One dodgy referring decesion either what can decide the outcome of one game.

Just spoken to a chap. 

 

He said if SWFC dont win this weekend the manager is 100% being changed. 

 

We're already sounding out replacements. 

 

Don't shoot the messenger...

 

Did you hear it on here?  There are a few contenders that would say that

I like the guy and he doesn't deserve the ending he will get here, but I think the writing is on the wall and the only delay is a lack of a credible replacement. He will be gone at the end of the season at the latest IMO.

That really is the crux of it,the names put forward so far are pretty much meh,or just not worthy (IMO).

After just getting beat by the blunts? No chance, we only sack managers after we beat them.:manager:

Anything else would just be embarrassing.

He was coming back strongly before the Derby. I had been wavering but the string of results and disciplined performances had won me over again.

 

The Derby shattered that. It made the playoff final, play off semi look like good performances and added a dollop of humiliation into the mix too. The nightmare scenario we thought unthinkable in the summer has unfolded and I am holding the manager responsible, even though the players have let him and us down, they are his players.

 

We cannot get where we need to be if we cannot win pressured games. The games CC mentions in his defence against newcastle and Brighton were when there were no expectations of a win, when there is we go to pieces. I am also of the belief that his dislike for pace and strength would only see us relegated if we went up. 

 

I like the guy and he doesn't deserve the ending he will get here, but I think the writing is on the wall and the only delay is a lack of a credible replacement. He will be gone at the end of the season at the latest IMO.

Sad, but ultimately I can't disagree with a word of this

 

A mixture of recruitment and just mental frailties brought on by two playoff failures on a largely unchanged squad has ruined a lot of the fight we could have. Too few strings to the bow, too little ability to cope with the pressure.

On the books of Doyen and Portuguese? Be surprised if he swapped champions league football for championship football though.

Not sure living in the Ukraine and your club not having a home because the city is occupied is much fun. Certainly Joe Palmer saw the appeal of a move in the same direction.

 

His record is also pretty decent. Looks like a good fit in a number of ways though doesn't it?

He looks younger than some of the first team squad. :rolleyes:

This is probably why he hasn't already got the boot. Most chairman have the replacement lines up before they pull the trigger. Otherwise, they end up in an even bigger pickle.

Our chairman has decided to take the lining up of replacements in house, but the list was not of the required quality and sent back, he then switched supplier of said lists and I believe the lists are urgently being made up and they hope to have it in within the next month or so

Thanks.

 

No thanks.

Why not?

 

I'm not advocating him with this job but rumours are rumours.

 

He's a well known journey man and has been know to live out of suitcases so he should be able to pack a defence, something we've been lacking.

I don't see us appointing a old style british coach under the current ownership. I think threre's a chance we might go for a decorated ex-pro but the most likely successor will be a continental coach, the way we're run, set up is ready made for one. Still think Carlos will get the season but I'm certain there will be a change in the summer now.
