Fans opinions change when results dont go right.

He will be the same as any manager on that basis.

Agree he will have more time if things do go wrong but fans can be fickle as they say so he is not infallible...!!

Rather think he maybe heading for hero status myself though..

Watched Micky with the supporters today, nothingwas too much trouble, no matter how many requests he smiled and obliged, also the team. A fantastic result today:yes::yes:

 

Why do you suppose he should be any different, manager and director on a good salary nothing should be too much trouble,its what he gets paid for to cosy up to the customers

I think someone / anyone can be seen to be "doing a job" as you say because they have to, wheras Mickey gives off an air that he wants to do the job and a bit more.

Think thats what Gingersmum is meaning to say and i agree....

Can you imagine any manager/director being any different on a club open day, Adams is a smart operator he knows how to work the crowd

But those are a couple of points and good reasons why we should be glad weve got him.

I'm just glad today was a success, happy for all the families that attended and just hope the fans can get behind the players and staff and give all the support this team needs to get into League One, we do belong there, it's just a matter of time, and in my eyes that time is now!

Pleased that the day seemed to go well. Have to disagree when you say that now is our time to get into league 1. If this current board remain, I reckon we are more likely to slip into the Blue Square.

SEO!!

No one "belongs" anywhere - you have to earn the right to be there - and with our disgusting custodians in charge, we "deserve" to be non league

I personally haven't been this happy with the clubs choice of manager since the glory days of John Rudge. I believe Micky can take us up the leagues given time and new personel in the board room..

Think he would have been safer if he hadn't joined the board because if results were poor fans would blame the board not the manager for results on the pitch.

 

Adams said that he joined the board so that he could sign players. It appears that he has signed players now, so why doesn't he just resign from the board!?

Iv been out of the UK for a while so whilst I still love Vale, I have zero sentiment towards Vale current players and Mickey Adams. However, I do feel that Mickey is a good league 2 manager, and given the right backing will get Vale promoted. Although, I do have doubts whether he could manage any higher as I think and have always thought his teams are a little one dimensional and get found out easily.

 

However, despite thinking we could of got a better manager than Mickey, Im quite pleased he is back, but not on the terms that he has.

 

For me he walked out on Vale at a crtical time, then failed at Sheff Utd, and I firmly believe that the only clubs that would have been interested in him would be the smaller teams in League 2. So to offer him a deal on better terms to my mind is absolute madness. Therefore, I think the board of offered him a similar deal to his previous contract, or an incentive based contract.

 

Furthermore, he gets a place on the board and is not financially liable. To me only at Vale would a manager walk out on the club, fail in a higher division, and then get a new improved contract with a place on the board. It just doesnt make any sense to me, it's ridiculous.

 

Anyway to sum up my rant, I bet Mickey feels he could fall into a barrell of s**t at the moment and come up smelling of roses.

Pretty much as objective a view as I have read.

Micky has got the safest job in football now, already it was pretty safe as Vale fans in general have low expectations. 2 seasons of finishing in the mid-table of the 4th Division and many vale fans think Micky is our best manager ever.

 

Now he's a director he is virtually unsackable, he could go on a massive run of bad results and it won't matter as he'll have to be in the board meeting that discusses his sacking and Bratt and Oliver won't have the balls to sack him in those circumstances. Also Micky will be able to vote to keep himself.

 

It's one messed up situation. :wacko:

 

Spot on.
