Pete Winkelman. Spent ages making a decision when Robinson left, then got the wrong guy, then didn't have the balls to get rid of him until the damage was done, and then opted for youth and inexperience over somebody who'd cost more but has a track record of keeping teams up/getting them promoted.

Obvious.

No he doesn't. When we sacked Neilson, we had only just dropped into the relegation zone with 18 games left and a squad that was deemed to be well underachieving and good enough to avoid relegation. Most managers would have backed themselves to keep the club up in those circumstances.
As for lack of goals: We should have signed a striker in the last week of the window but Dan said there was no need to as the ones he had were good enough if coached correctly. So he has no excuses there. He has to deliver what he said they need - good coaching - and the goals should apparently arrive.

After today's performance, we are going down. Just get used to it.

If we go down, we will have to dust ourselves and go again. Hopefully we'll return to winning ways.

Is the op fucking serious?!?!?!
Relegation would be catastrophic financially!
You'd see regular crowds of 6k for a start

Micciche is a yes man, that's why he was offered the job.
Strikers cost money and the manager wouldn't be rocking the boat by asking for one.

Starting at the bottom again , might do us good, Dan can start from scratch and build us up for promotion , and build momentum, if we are doing well in league two , the crowds will not be far off what they are now, don't want it to happen, but can't see any way out now, just hope we don't struggle in league two, how as it come to this , two years ago in August we were top of the championship, look where we are now, I am gutted.


I have said this before on here, but I saw exactly the same process of thought at Sunderland last season: "maybe relegation will help, start again, etc". Its the bargaining stage of grief.

Never underestimate how shit relegation would be. While I agree that it would not be fatal for the club (as the next one might be for Sunderland), it would certainly not have a positive spin. And League Two is not "the bottom" - just ask Leyton Orient.

I dont think there is one particular reason we find ourselves in this position but a culmination of factors
Never replacing andy king
Robbo believing 4 2 3 1 is the only formation to play even if we dont have the players to do so.
RN man management clearly an issue with number of players.
Who recruited all the scots sow in particular.
Recruiting players with injury problems.
Letting potter go last season not replacing him with same quality.
I could go on but hope somehow we can turn it round

No good whatsoever imo, will cost us dearly for a few years in terms of financies and support. Everyone seems to think that if we go down (and i can’t see any other option) that we will come straight back up and be stronger. In reality we could be down there for a few years. We certainly won’t have players like chuks aneke. Cannot think of anything worse in regards to football.
