Thought I’d start this thread so it doesn’t get lost in the match threads. Some of our fan base this season has been an embarrassment, calling for Askey to be sacked. We need to take a step back,

The owners trust Askey with the task.  That's good enough for me.

Bollox. If you mean 80/90% of posts, you may be close to the mark, but the vast majority of those posts were made by the same half dozen who pop up vociferously whenever we lose. You've fallen into th

Nah, it's consistent. Huff and puff with THREE shots on target. The keepers had little to do.

Goals from set pieces and 30 yards. Nothing created from open play.

Shambolic, comical defending for all 3.

Late collapse when the pressures on.

Cristian Montano forced to drag us into competency single-handedly.

It's the same rubbish. There's football gods and then there are inherent, endemic issues that haven't been addressed in 19 months of management.

Fair enough Joe but the “inherent, endemic issues” you mention here didn’t appear to be evident at the end of last season, when everyone thought we’d finish in the playoffs had the season continued, and had enough quality to push on this season.

You haven’t spent 19 months moaning.  We haven’t spent 19 months huffing and puffing, creating nothing, and defending this badly.  I seem to recall everyone was satisfied until our recent woes, other than the premature conclusion to last season robbing us of our rightful place in the playoff positions, fully anticipated by the way we were finishing the season.

The problems of this season stem from the delusion that our players were better than they actually are in my opinion.  Also the management and owners probably bought into this notion to some degree, and this combined with the COVID situation, likely influenced our recruitment.  Unfortunately, and in hindsight, this season the chickens have come home to roost.  We still don’t score enough, but now our reliable defending has been called into question and we’re conceding very poor goals.  You can throw in the disruption of injuries and isolations.

Whoever is the manager will have to add a better player or 2 in January and hope whoever comes in makes a difference.

Askey sounds under massive pressure in interview today.  So time will tell I guess.

My patience is beginning to wear thin and I don’t think anybody could complain if he’s sacked if we lose the next game now

Why wait another game to pull the trigger? 

Enough is enough. 6 games lost in a row. I don't see what waiting for a defeat at Bolton would achieve. If we picked up a point at Bolton can we honestly expect the pattern for the next two home games against Colchester and Forest Green be any different?

League One strugglers Shrewsbury Town have sacked manager John Askey.

The 54-year-old had been in charge of the Shropshire side since leaving Macclesfield Town in June when his predecessor Paul Hurst joined Ipswich.

Askey led Macclesfield to last season's National League title but was unable to replicate that success with Shrewsbury.

The club won just four of his 17 league games in charge - and were booed off after Sunday's FA Cup first-round draw at home to non-league Salford City.

Starting to sound familiar

The Ale and the Vale podcast (which is truly excellent) are indicating that they have heard there are a number of players causing problems behind the scenes.

Is Askey strong enough to deal with that?

Will Carol have to make a decision between Askey and those players?

If true, kick 'em out.

They don’t go into details, but talk about a number of players who are causing issues.

I have been saying for a few weeks that something was going on in the background... this drop off has been too dramatic to be a simple drop in performance levels.

Similar to the situation when he arrived then.  Get rid, send them on gardening leave otherwise.

None of these are based in any fact at all and are simple questions / statements I have running round in my head 

- Popes “isolation” seemed a bit short

- McKirdy and Askey... hmmmm

- Clark’s performances has fallen off a cliff

- Adam Yates wasn’t particularly glowing in his views on Rodney when he was on the pod... when pressed on his thought of him he said something along the line of “a few clubs have tried to make him into a professional footballer, maybe we will be lucky and can make it happen, maybe we can’t”... seemed like a strange comment.

- Is Smith gutted he didn’t get his move

One of Popes kids tested positive I believe. 
 

I never got carried away with Clark’s performances when he was here before. Hes clearly got talent and probably one of the best full backs in the league on his day. This season I think has highlighted his defensive failings and his work rate has been nowhere near what it should be in an attacking sense either, disappointing so far. Is that down to Askey though? I don’t think so personally. 
 

Yates makes a fair comment, he hasn’t worked out at other clubs and we’re taking a bit of a gamble. It’s clear from we’ve seen so far that is true. “Raw” seems to be the in word to describe him.
