    Would you welcome Norman Smurthwaite back at the helm?

    I would. If for no other reason than we need someone to make strong decisions and to lead us out of the position we are in currently.

    It seems support is growing but it would be interesting to put it to a vote.

    At least he has lieutenants now so the ship should sail more surely, only time will tell. No doubt the latest interview will be recorded and used to judge the captain`s progress. For the sake of our club, Bon Voyage.

    No. He has proven he cannot run this club. He even admitted it last year. If he accepted his limitations as owner and put someone else in that may work.

    Adams as director of football to the extent of actually running everything to do with football including budgets would be a potentially good move. The incumbent manager would then need to focus on just being a good coach.

    Could it work? Possibly. I know people hate director of football roles and I do too, but I think Micky could be great at it. His ability when the club was on its knees in admin was outstanding. It was his stale coaching and tactical approaches that killed off his tenure at Vale, but away from the frontline management, his experience and strengths could shine.

    Never really left, and unless the league situation improves hardly likely to attract a suitable buyer. So in his hands for a while.

    Unfortunately he has to be at the forefront otherwise he has someone else to blame eg Garlick on the appointment of Brown, the retained list under Page which no one apparently knew about.

    As long as he owns the club, there is no choice.
