    As long as he continues to hire managers we will be in the same situation. As we all know any decent manager worth his salt will not come to this football club with him as their direct boss.
    they either have not got a clue or they could not give a fark anymore.

    all about those flats and office blocks now.

    its time bungle and co to just sell up and fark off.

Defending was so poor on goals 2 and 3, giving way too much space, Ned takes a lot of the blame, who do you play instead of him? As for the 4th and 5th goal we were obviously taking huge chances but it was worth a go, we were controlling lots of the play and on another day may have nicked a couple with any finishing, the chances were there, once again that comes down to poor strikers! Everyone was calling for CW to be dropped for Smyth, that happened, Smyth is a great young prospect but did not turn us in to a play off contender, Eze similar, great exciting young player but still raw! Was it JFH who used to bring on defenders when we were chasing a game, I would rather take a chance by throwing forwards on even though you are vulnerable at the back! Lastly I will say I would not agree with sacking Ollie just because the majority on this board don't like him unless there is a proper replacement lined up, something which is not going to be easy given the DOF and owner's track record!

        Great post gator & exactly how i feel, we gave them far too much space yesterday & our defence had hardly any cover from our midfield, fully expect our next game for the players to be in the oppositions faces like they should of been saturday.

            Again. Ferdinand had nothing to do with hiring Holloway. He should get no blame in this

              I would fundamentally disagree with that statement Gator. Any half decent champs manager would have this squad comfortably in the top half of the table, and that's being conservative IMO. Given the players Ollie has had at his disposal, he has massively under-delivered. This is the main cause of fans' dissatisfaction, again IMO. Unbelievably frustrating too, given that just a few simple yet vital tweaks to formation would have done it.

                Maybe not but his previous manager appointments all ended in tears, there's a trend here!

                  But they aren't the issue here. Holloway is.

                    but its his job to fire him.... he is failing to do even that.

                      Wouldn't it be his job to make that reccomendation to the chairman and for the chairman to approve?

                        How do we know he hasn't tried but been blocked by TF. TF has said many times that he is behind IH and thinks he is doing a great job.

                          Ollie's army fighting back. Now 4 votes for him to stay. Still no Pinkie though.

                            He must go but at the end of the season. Any new boss coming now would be ripped to bits by our ever hungry fans. We all keep saying the squad should be doing better and its Ollies bad tactical nous that is the problem. If a new boss comes in and we continue with the same results and performances would mean they were doomed before next season starts. Of course the reverse would happen if things did improve, is it worth the risk?

                              Jeff. Would make sense and sum up Fernandes's reign if he did block him being shown the door.

                                Quite right gator.
