Askey did well to keep us up but we didn’t progress we have stood still and signed poor player after poor player. Look at where we are if that’s good enough for port vale then we might as well call it a night. 

Didn't progress?

The in-form club pre-lockdown. Edge of the playoffs. That WAS progress.

This year has been a backward step. Undeniable.

Criticise by all means but keep it sensible.

Some interesting responses on here to the latest development. I'd like to add some context. In the past TWENTY YEARS we have only achieved a top 7 finish in the league... ONCE. This was under MA

The meltdown on here is laughable.  Please can someone tell me the success we have had in appointing a manager since Micky left? None. Flitcroft being appointed DoF shows our long term visio

Check out wiki.  He's run the family business with his brother and father for 15 years and has his own football academy.  He's not been "just" a player and manager.  In view of the amount of crit

😂😂Didn’t know this was about me? What a pointless comment. Since when have I or anyone on here declared we should be the manager? 
 

Sorry 15th in league two is amazing... at least we’re not 8th like carol said ey. 

Pointless?
You seem to have all the answers. You made it about you with your scathing criticism.

Get that application in. I'm sure you have all the answers.

Look at Flitcrofts management history he is very active when it comes to buying and selling players. He likes to throw other ppls money about and that doesn’t always achieve success. The blokes nothing but a mercenary and I don’t want us to end up like Bury or Mansfield. He likes a champagne budget, which it turned out Bury didn’t have and I’m not so sure that Mansfield have anymore either. I don’t want our club to end up like those others and before you go on about his success, remember those clubs also sacked him. Carols in charge of the purse strings and there’s an Egyptian proverb that says, ‘if you think throwing money at a problem will sort it, then you haven’t thought about solving the problem’. To be our manager would mean that he’d have to have a good relationship with ppl at the club and as the club has stated that we’d know the manager by now this leads me to believe that things aren’t straight forward. For me he’s had his chance and if we aren’t good enough for him perhaps because we won’t give in to his demands then fine, I wish him all the best but let’s move on. 

Once again - he didn't have a lot of money at Chorley! And, yes - that's non-League football, but he had a non-League team with non-League budget, playing against teams at the same level and did very well. My Chorley-supporting friend says when Flitcroft left he left Chorley in great shape - as I guess could be seen from their Cup run this season? Money isn't everything - sometimes success is down to talent, preparation, knowledge and hard work?

Was. Look where we are. Progressing and then regressing to where we started isnt progress.

No I don’t understand why me and others criticising a professional football manager means I could do a better job that’s not true. Decent on footy manager though 😂

You cannot deny how poor we were this season and how much askey got wrong. 
 

You obviously rated him, what do you think he / we did well this season? I liked him as a person but results and performances just weren’t close to being good enough this year and for me it was down to the transfer window

Wait a few months with Pugh at the helm and see if the season finishes early - which it may well do.

dont pay flitcroft to sit doing very little for 6 months. He only needs to watch some ifollow tape for a few hours to see where the dead weight is and he can do that on the first day of summer.

I think you’ll find that was Garry Flitcroft who left in 2015. A lot can happen in football in 5/6 years, ie Sunderland,Blackpool and Portsmouth, spring to mind. Therefore how can you attribute any success at a club to a manager who left so long ago. 
Can’t wait till the 2026 season when we’re in the Champuons League and are saying Askey started it all.

This whole manager situation is becoming incredibly tedious. Had I have known that we’d still be no closer to appointing someone well into February I’d have wanted Askey to stay. As Pugh has lead us through transfer window we might as well stick with him and hopefully plan for someone to come in as soon as the seasons finished. On the evidence of Grimsby and Southend, we should still be in the Football League next year.

And we'd/will get just the same from Pugh. Big broom needed or we are stuck in a cycle.

hahahaha!!! Bugger! I'd forgot there was two of them! Thanks for the spot, Playa! Can I just say - I think Garry Flitcroft would be a good shout?

When I said they were in good shape, I didn't necessarily mean the squad, but the infrastructure was sound!

When you drop a clanger like I've done over the last couple of weeks, the <ovf censored> deserves to hit this fan!! Every time I've read "Flitcroft" I've assumed Garry! 😬
