Why can't people see this. Action needs taking now, it will cost a lot more not too. What on earth is going on?

Because we all think we are to good to go down and so do the owners. All this talk of if everyone is fit we'll be ok. We haven't had our best 11 fit all season so what makes us think that's about to change now.

It would be sheer complacency to think we can't go down. I always remember Cloughie's last season in Division One with Forest when everyone was saying they were too good to go down...

A defeat tonight and we will be right back in the mix.

We have no game plan at the minute I don't see any structure to the way we play it's just hoof and hope. At least under Askey there was a pattern to our play even though it didn't work and that's not me saying he shouldn't have gone.

Personally I think the expectations bar was set to high and a lot of fans have jumped on this. We are are all living in a very abnormal life situation, this goes for all teams and clubs and us fans, I don't know what happened behind the seen which prompted the powers at be to release John Askey with no back up plan, we have lots of rumours. I know we all crave instant success but I personally would be happy with small steps slow sustainable steps after the last 20years,l don't think we would have gone down a possible mid table,now we're back to square 1 with possible new manager new ideas and still no guarantee of success, the roundabout begins again.

We need to relax a minute. If we win tonight ( I know, but stranger things have happened!) the manager will have gone WDLW in his first 4 games. That would be considered a decent start given what he inherited. Wouldn’t it?
The better half told me I need to relax the other night she reckons it's because we can't get to the ground and scream and shout like we usually do. She also suggested a zoom meeting between all four thousand of us so we can all just yell at the top of our voices for a few minutes and then maybe we will feel better.

John McGreal rumour circulating on Twitter. I stress this is a rumour.

Cant see him fitting in with Carol as one of the reasons Colchester got rid was because he wouldn't buy in to the youth set up they wanted.

Only one man out there who i would of been straight on the phone to Saturday..... Mr Adams step forward

According to their fans he is; too defensive, plays one up front, doesn't make enough subs.... he would get eaten alive on here within 10 mins

I know it depends on basic market forces, but how much do managers in league 2 get paid on average? 

I’ve no idea. Are they in line with players wages? More? Less?

To me, if managers are a similar cost (for league 2) generally, then surely it would be prudent to spend ‘decent’ more on a manager with a proven record.

I appreciate this doesn’t guarantee success but it’s basic risk management. 

Obviously, if they cost a fortune, then forget all that!

Well Clough was a raging drunk at the time, not fit to manage a club. That Forest season, the first in the Premier League of 92/93 started well for them, but got worse and worse. 
 

A better example is Notts County, a club chock full of league experience but went down because it was poorly organised full of has been players.
