I want to be positive about Monk , for the simple reason he appears to be staying , but on the evidence of his first 12 months i aint in the slightest bit confident that he is the man for a re-build.

This season was gonna be bleak regardless of -12 point start or not....Chansiri loves Monk, was never gonna change management anyways....dark times ahead I’m afraid.

Be stupid to let him go. I can't see us having any money to spend, and brining in another manager would cost more money. Id be surprised if we can even bring in loan signings as we'd have to pay part/all if there wages.

Monk did well with his hands tied and a points deduction hanging over his head at Birmingham.

 

If we can recruit some players with a bit of fight in them, he could do similar here.

 

Birmingham didn't have Chansiri as owner.

Let who go?  Monk? Not a question of letting him go! Just of getting rid!  Then onwards and upwards.

I think Monk knew this was coming. I think DC did as well. We’re set up for a rebuild & Monk will be doing it. Have to accept that now.

At least he hasn’t walked away like Cook. We’d be even further behind in our preparations if he had.

There might now be more of a case for getting rid of Garry 'I know what a winning dressing room looks like' Monk in this situation.

 

Next season we will need a manager who is a great man manager and motivator to fire up the players to overcome the points handicap. I don't think Monk is capable of that.

Agree, the season was wasted the minute Bruce walked last summer. 

 

Let's hope we get the Monk pre Christmas, than post Christmas. A lot depends on the backing of DC though, not only to overhaul the squad, but to add to the coaching staff.

As above... With vast majority of the fans wanting Monk out the door, who will really want to come and take on this mess.

 

Just have to back Monk now at least until November. Hopefully he’s given chance to bring in some more young players.

 

We have been in far worse positions... Up the owls

Good and how do you come to the presumption that the Vast majority want Monk out?

Ironically, Garry Monk is almost THE perfect manager to have in our position.

 

He absolutely bossed it at Birmingham with that team under a real financial mess.

Literally the only person with a proven track record of steering a club with a minus points deficit to success = Garry Monk

 

Birmingham were never in serious danger of relegation in 18-19 even with the 9 points deduction.

 

That was entirely due to the 3 teams at the bottom being so poor. Rotherham 40 pts, Bolton 32 pts, Ipswich 31 pts.

 

Birmingham only won 2 of the last 12 games that season under Monk.

Ahhhhh I didn't realise that's how it worked when looking at manager's achievements


That puts a whole new spin on a lot of things I believed up to this point

"steering a club with a minus points deficit to

success"

 

I'd hardly describe it as 'success'.

 

They would have finished 14th without the points deduction. They ended up in 17th,  12 points above the relegation places.

 

That was despite winning only 2 of their last 12 matches.
