Those of you excusing Gary Monk

Recommended Posts

I personally think Monk should go but do recognise circumstances during his time here have not been in his favour.

Think perhaps only a few managers could have done a good job here at present.

For me it would be an absolute disaster if we went down to league one. If it happens imo we will be stuck in that league for a while. It simply can’t happen. 

 

I agree, we could stay down there longer than our first stint 1975 to 1980. 

I don't think attendances would hold up this time, 12 to 14,000 would be an average gate. 

 

We might even end up in old 4th division.

It worries me that people think this is out of Monk’s hand.

 

He had a transfer window in January and didn’t get a defensive midfield. He got more of what we already have. We are stuck with Pessy. 
 

He changes the team waaay too much every week. 
 


He’s already suggested that they didn’t bring in who he wanted. 
 

The clubs structure is fizzed and has been for years. Obviously we’re in a rotten slump but the overall situation is nothing new. People have been saying the team Carlos built, which is still the core of the squad, is too comfortable for a long time. We’re still bringing in Bates’ and not using them. 

 

DC is at the heart of this and it’s time for him to admit the experiment has failed and move on. Whatever Monk wants to achieve in the summer he probably won’t be allowed to.

Slightly optimistic at these prices?

Monk was his appointment.

 

Without knowing all the politics, personalities and challenges, I couldn’t praise or condemn Monk.

 

That wouldn’t be really fair.

 

I don’t excuse him - but he does have my sympathy.

 

And, so will the next manager.

But you can DC?

Just for a bit of perspective. 
pre season I was the most optimistic I have been in years. A good experienced manager who identified our areas of weakness. Put square pegs in square holes. I was looking forward to a good season. 
 

Now I’ve stopped going. I just can’t stand watching this poo. 
 

only one important thing changed. Monk. We would not be in the mess had Bruce not walked.

Yes, ultimately.

 

Appointing managers, agreeing and appointing back room staff, recruiting and retaining players - including Senior ones.

 

Controlling the finances of the Club.

 

All the above - have an indirect effect on the training pitch and the dressing room. The general moral and leadership of the Club.

 

All under his control.

 

Who do you suggest is ultimately responsible?

They'll all be season ticket holders, all pay on day will be visiting fans, Fleetwood average around 100 traveling supporters. :duntmatter:

I suggest that tactics, team motivation, an input (unclear to what level) in recruitment, training, in-game management are a non-exhaustive list of responsibilities assigned to the manager. 

 

In my team if I assign someone a leadership role within my organisation and they consistantly fail to motivate the team, to put people in a situation to perform their best, I take some of the blame but ultimately they have to go.

 

I'm not sure why you dont share that view.

He did walk so what he would or wouldn’t have done is irrelevant.

A sensible overview - well done that man!

So you want a short term fix - but want to ignore what has got us here in the first place?
 

You trust the Chairman to appoint, give guidance and leadership this time? Didn’t he appoint Monk - albeit as a cheap option on a short term contract.

 

This new manager - will he have his own back room staff, any confidantes in the hierarchy of the Club, a budget?

I don’t hold a candle for Monk either.

 

I never have - but what do I know. With the right support he could have been successful?

 

Monks appointment was merely treading water - for what, till when?

 

I wouldn’t know where the start appointing someone to manage this Club with its current problems.

 

Its not a science. There aren’t any guarantees.
 

But I don’t know why you are all just shouting about Monk.

Trouble is even when he's put out a good 11 we've still been garbage.

We wanted forestieri back, wanted Wickham to come, moaned about reach. Doesn't make a difference who plays it seems.

He shouldn't be playing Dawson every week, although during the decent spell people were saying how good he was.But imo he isn't good enough.

Get rid of monk by all means but 

This will be number 15 in 20 years.

I'm not convinced the next man will be able to sort this crap out either.
