if his remit was a top 10 finish and even the most optimistic o,f us can't see that happening, then I agree his position should be in question

Dazzer - basically due to the time available to get a new manager appointed before the window opens/closes.Also, do not forget that Ardley was left with a load of crap that Brown signed before he had to go. Brown, in turn, had to be bailed out with a fair bit of cash the season before to enable him to bring in the players that saved us that year.

Our ownership model does not help and Erik's article a few weeks back (Lincoln) was interesting
Leicester and Oldham have sacked 2 managers this year.

if his remit was to not get relegated and he achieves it - why would we let him go

...sorry Neal- Surrey Bob doesn't like you so you gotta go
SB - why have the board left it far too late to change the manager? I don't agree with your comment about Terry Brown either - we replaced him in October - and it worked just :) - I'd agree that Dave Anderson was a season too long - but hindsight is a wonderful thing and in the Anderson days everything off the pitch was very very new too everyone

although it appears some fans think that running a football club is easy - and Kris, Erik, Ivir etc should have been experts from the word go
REPD - so, your happy for him to spunk away even more of our limited money in January on more crap players? He admitted he got his player recruitment wrong last season and he's done it again this season.

Just once would have been enough - like Oldham, Leicester, Everton etc

and, even if we survive, he should be released at the end of the season
Definitely not an Ardley fan, and I wouldn't be upset if I woke up one day and find he had left the club, but it's probably too late to part company with him now

Though if we're still struggling in March...
We should have changed our manager twice this year just like Gillingham, Chesterfield and Northampton to show what a strong board we have.

Loads of other clubs have changed managers and they havenít improved, all they are left with is debt from contracts they have to pay up

Bob, bit harsh that. I'm no Ardley fan but the results have picked up slightly and we can only hope that the manager has learnt from his mistakes for the umpteenth time. I don't see the benefit in sacking him at the moment. As for the comment about off the field, that's absolute crap. I look forward to hearing you outline your concerns at the upcoming DT AGM, assuming you attend.

I have no issue with experimentation with shape and player positioning, within reason, provided the shape that works best is figured out in good time and therefore the end result (league position) is acceptable. There is a fine line between trying alternative tactical options and being too clever by half.

Admittedly Lyle taking corners is a bit left field, though he's fucking useless with his head anyway.
As you might expect, the Club board have left it far too late to change manager; as they did with Anderson and Brown. Looks like we are just as weak off the field as we are on it.

As one of the Yeovil 74 I can say that if any of those players think they have a future then they better have a long hard look at themselves. that was park level last night, I think we only managed to string 2 passes together all night. Robbo looked well rusty, Francomb's crosses and passes not accurate enough. Nightingale seems totally different to what I remember and the Young guys looked like lost sheep! where's the passion/desire to show what you're made of and make that step up? Just as well I didn't have to travel far to get there.

As I said earlier the Xmas period will require some rotation so the likes of a Robbo and Abdou need the 2 reserve games on 12th and 19th Decemberto get match fit in case they are needed

REPD - Kennedy does "really good in training"
6th Dec 2017 13:09:30

and fair play to him, as a utility squad player
kt2 - as with OI's point re: Tanner, the squad NA acquired over the Summer is/was pretty decent* . It's how those players are utilised which has always been NA's achilles heel. (LTB defending, and out on the wing, and crossing to himself... not to mention now taking corners.... seriously?)

*usual over-excitability in the midfield area notwithstanding
Judging by last night, Robbo may give 100% but he'd also give away a lot of goals

Kennedy isnít great but he might be what we need in a relegation battle, Robbo too would give you 100 per cent which some of the others wouldnít when the chips are down

Wasn't me, but he wasn't very happy
Not sure I can stomach seeing Franchise at Wembley even if itís only in the Checkatrade

As for Kennedy, he's definitely got *something* on the AFCW hierarchy
REPD-our aim at the start of the season was to be playing like Barca but obviously that has been shelved so Appiah may find he is surplus to requirements if ever comes back from injury, Ardley said at meet the manager that Kennedy was the kind of character you need unlike some of the bad apples of last season like Poleon and Barnett

So, are people supporting Franchise tonight in the Chuckaturd Trophy then? To protect the integrity of the tournament, of course...

Our transfer dealings seemed a bit haphazard, more than anything - signing three similar midfielders and no target man, and re-signing Kennedy spring to mind already
