Aspin In

a manager is not to blame for so many individual errors
But why are there so many individual errors? Other managers have players that do the odd one but we do it 2,3,4 times a match, I'm pretty sure them players wudnt be doing that under a different gaffer

I think he deserves criticism for signing so many centre halves, some poor tactics and team selections.

 

However that’s as far as it can go, the thing to remember is how bad we were under brown and the mess that clown left us in, Aspin has done a very steady job imo as we were that bad.

 

He deserves a pre season to see what he can do with us, I’m genuinely interested and excited by some of the non league signings, Hannant looks a great find and hopefully the likes of Angus can prove worthwhile.

 

I think with Aspin it’s a case of giving him time. We need to actually back a manager for a couple of seasons and let them out their plans fully in place, too often we sack managers early, page and even Bruno could be arguments for

This even though with Bruno it was going **** up.

 

He’s on a longer contract now so he needs to be backed continue to gradually improve us and hopefully next season put together a side that can compete close towards the top.

If he had money to spend he did only bring in another 3 CB's....

Hes signed some crap players so does deserve critiscm and should have signed a GK, CM and LB. We had a bad window and he should be partly to blame.

 

Is he the best manager we've had since Adams? No doubt, if not better.

Page the most defensively minded manager I’ve ever come across. Ribiero come under the Trades Description Act as a manager and Brown brought in this present rubbish. I think I could be a better manager than that lot never lone Aspo. No contest.

Aspin is getting there if he keeps us in league 2 and then gets the required backing in the summer we will be ok and he will move slowly onwards and upwards

My only slight concern and before you all jump on this it’s not a criticism on Popey but why is every strike partnership Popey then another? Why can’t we mix it up and start with two new lads up front put Popey on standby on the bench ? Just now and again what is there to lose? We aren’t scoring that often anyway

Myself I 100% want Smurf gone and am also getting to the point of wanting Aspin gone, I so wanted him turn out be a good manager but he seems clueless how to get the best out of the players.

Maybe we should dump every manager that goes on a bad run..even with these players he still has a 37% win rate with Vale and has 10 wins 6 draws and 11 losses not that bad considering the run we are on,so to me that says back him and he will bring success....so imo it seems it isn't him who is clueless me owd fruit

If we only give a manager less than 6 months a time then we will get nowhere. At some point we have to steady the ship for stability. Surely only an idiot would think otherwise? In fact I'd be amazed if we go up next season, rebuilding a club is not necessarily a quick process and we've done it for 2 summers in a row with a third rebuilding job on the horizon.

It’s nowt do with Popey just change the way we play nothing against Popey atall we’ve all played the game its trying anything to surprise the opponents we swap wingers from wing to wing during games as a way of trying to unlock defences

When the seasons over whatever happens Popey can say atleast he gave all he could for us not like most of the team so got not complaints there atall Jacob

No manager could or would be able to turn this Club around without genuine support and sensible cash investment. Smurthwaite doesn't need a manager he needs a bluudy magician!

 

If we stay in the league the Asp will be the person who has made it happen with the aid of a super December. Those who decry Aspo are sick in the head. Was it his fault that we lost two good central defenders in Gunning and Anderson and got no support in his attempts to bring in the likes of a couple of much needed recruits like Louis Dodds.

 

There is only one man to blame and that is the thieving owner.

Now you will probably take this as another personal attack but can I ask what has he stolen? And where is the evidence? and do you think that calling the owner names like that will help get people who aren't sure yet onside?

 

Surely you have enough facts to work with without resorting to baseless accusations?

Take a look at our accounts before you take issue with my comments. For anyone who isn't 'onside yet' as you put it then they mustn't be able to look beyond the end of their nose!

He’s done a decent job so far especially with what and who he has worked with. Yes, he has made mistakes as any manager who has stepped up is bound to do. He should be judged on how he does with a full season behind him, let’s hope Smurf supports him to help make next season successful.

An increasing number of people on here seem to be calling for aspins head. Quite frankly, I think this is ridiculous.

 

He inherited a squad that is clearly terrible and unbalanced. From 5 points after 11 games, he's taken us to 34. Most agreed that if he could avoid relegation with this squad it would be a miracle. Despite the doom mongers still predicting this, I honestly don't think it will happen. There are worse clubs than us in this league, thankfully, and we will scrape through.

 

Aspin has come in for criticism for his recruitment/actions in January. From what has happened I think that aspin took the view that he did not want, unless absolutely necessary, to tie up next year's budget in making panic permanent signings, given that most permanent signings in January would likely have been players that:

 

1. Other clubs didn't want;

 

2. Wanted at least an 18 month contract; and/or

 

3. Wanted too much money for their ability knowing we were struggling.

 

The above may explain the gunning situation, and I can't say that I blame him for doing this. He obviously wants pretty much a completely clean slate for July to get his own team in and I suspect that most of the current players will be gone at the end of the season including some of those under contract for next season.

 

As for the failure to sign a keeper in January, I'm sure he would have loved nothing more. However, signing a decent keeper in January is nigh on impossible, as most clubs will not want to let any experienced keepers go, given the potential for injuries in the second half of the season. Again, I don't blame him for not recruiting one in January.

 

Current form is not good. We would all agree that. Is that aspins fault? He must, as the manager, bear some responsibility, and I'm sure he accepts that, but what on earth can he do to prevent:

 

1. Players not sticking with their designated man, leaving them completely free in the penalty area?

 

2. Our gks making horrendous errors of judgment that you wouldn't see most weeks in the Sunday pub league?

 

3. Professional players not being able to pass a ball to a teammate over 5 yards, nor being able to clear the first man on most set pieces that we take?

 

The common denominator this season has been the players. They have to bear the lions share of the responsibility. Unfortunately, many seem unwilling to do so, instead preferring to blame the pitch or, in the case of our outfield players, the gk. They seem to think that they can shirk themselves of responsibility by simply hoofing the ball up to Tom as soon as they get it. I can't accept that that is aspins instructions.

 

Can anyone name a side that has ever been successful in the long term by changing their manager every year? Success is born of stability and long term thinking. Given time, I've no doubt whatsoever that aspin and Jr will change the fortunes of this club for the better. You may criticise our chairman, but how is changing the manager every 12 months going to help? If he doesn't get the backing from norman, I have little doubt that he will either walk of his own volition, or come out and say that (he has been refreshingly honest since being appointed).

 

He has been criticised for persisting with 1 up top most of the time, but who can blame him with our centre midfield and insistence from the players in simply hoofing it? If we play 2 up top, our midfield and defence is completely exposed. I believe that Angus represents how he will set out his side next season when he has the players, with pacy wide men getting in behind. We simply don't have the players to do that this season.

 

If, come November next season, our squad is no better and in a similar position to this season then, quite rightly, serious questions will be asked, particularly if he has been backed appropriately. Until then, please give the man a chance. He is not infallible by any means, and will have learnt a lot this season (not least from the regis situation), but nobody else would have done an appreciably better job with the hand that he was dealt.

 

Back the manager. He will be hurting as much as any of us, given his love for the club. Until he has had a proper opportunity to address the issues in the squad, on his terms, it's completely wrong to judge him as some have done.

 

Utv.

Whilst I never thought Aspo was the right choice this however is a fantastic post and agree with every word. Well said.
