    Good appointment. Experienced at this level which we needed. Shame SISU are still here though, so a mixture of hope and despair !

    I agree thomas offers more in terms of movement and also pressing. Either could work.

    Maybe mcbean as targetman and sordell as a poacher?

    Looking forward to next few games at least though

    Football management must be the only career when you can be sacked as incompetent one month and hired as a great saviour the next month!

    He's already lost his hair so he should be fine for us, no more to tear out.

    It may prove to be a good appointment, knows the lower leagues, has an eye for a signing. I just hope the owners back him ;)

    McBean and Sordell linked up well against Crawley!

    Hopefully he will get his 11 and stick with it rather than fucking about every week.

    I don't give a fuck about football other than England games, Cov games and fantasy premier league. I don't even know who's in our league.

    Well, I wish Mr Slade good luck. But not getting my hopes up. SISU, Seppala, Fisher and Venus hardly offer light at the end of the tunnel.

    Slade must be desperate for a job to take this basket case of a club on even for just 6 months.

    I wish the guy all the luck in the world as he will need it. I imagine in early January when the promises start to get broken will he then realise what he has taken on .

    When Venus leaves in January it'll be slade reporting directly into fisher. That'll be interesting.

    Maybe he sees it as a chance to upturn his reputation. Do well and other clubs may want him come the end of the season/ or a miracle happens and we get new investment and they like him and keep him on* or do badly no harm done as the club are a mess and he can use that excuse.

    *Yes I know it is unlikely, but I live in hope.

    I'm more optimistic about it because I think he has the know how to get us out of the relegation zone. But as its been said before, nothing will change at the club until SISU go.

    I'm really happy with this appointment, have been calling for a L1 manager since TM left. Knows the division and knows players who will work in this division. Glad he has been brought in before Xmas gives him a bit of time to assess the squad and see who he likes/doesn't like and can make early moves in January (budget willing) to bring in the players he thinks will help the team

    I suppose we could have done worse. We could have got someone called "Potter". Then we could do the Wizzard song. Geddit? Potter? Wizzard? Christmastime? Ah well, suit yourselves! :facepalm:
