Getting away from the relegation zone is the height of our ambitions today.

I can understand your joy that GB has left. But it must be costing your club a fortune paying off these contracts. Is Graham Barrow still with you ? I suspect that he and your current fitness coach will be next to go. Employing SE is costing us a lot of money, but my guess is you are spending more paying off staff and employing JL and his staff.

Interested to know the length of contract given, and how much compo they've paid Florist.

1. They all claimed Lester wouldn't come because they wouldn't be surely paying for a new manager

2. Lester would be stupid to take the job given the risk involved if there's no lengthy deal on the table, ensuring he gets a Saunders-sized pay off regardless of how he performs.

It's a win/win for Lester

Turn them round - he remains a Spireite legend

Fail - he becomes a Mansfield legend

Agent Lester ;)

I think turd polishing skills are exactly the number one requirement in their current predicament.

So far not the person with league 2 management experience, that their CEO alluded to. Although a third person to be announced.

I think they have slipped up by not having John Sheridan back.

Be interesting to see if we get more home fans in tomorrow than you do for your big game tomorrow.

I think we will.

A few thousand stayaways jumping back on the bandwagon because Lester has come back, expecting to witness fantastic football like back in the day when he could lace his boots up?

Oh how that supposed "feel-good" atmosphere will turn sour very quickly when they are reminded just how crap you are, and why you are second from bottom in the table. Cheltenham have a bit of pace up front, they will cause you no end of problems.

It's amazing what an old favourite can do. It's good business for your owner and CEO. They must think it's Christmas. They have even changed the minds of your "notapennymore" brigade, who vowed never to return whilst DA was in charge. But because it's Jack it's ok. Because of the "new manager syndrome" you will probably play above yourselves and even get a win today. I think your CEO will have everything crossed for this to happen, in order that he can sell as many of the season tickets he has announced are on sale next week. Strike why the iron is hot, because it's a long time till January with a set of players that so far have been way short of the standard. Another thing that intrigues me is,why your club is announcing a new CEO next week. I would have thought with all the feel good factor now radiating from the Proact AC would have wanted to bask in the limelight. Why step down, surely this euphoria isn't going to be a short term thing?

This all mirrors exactly the events surrounding the appointment of Paul Holland at Stags. Popular ex player appointed by a puppet chairman with the owner lurking in the back ground pulling the strings.

I'd certainly expect an initial upturn in their results, with the feelgood factor. However, they sound guff, their results are guff, and you don't turn guff in to gold.

If they don't get the upturn then they're in trouble.

You could be right Chumpta, you do have 700 stay away season ticket holders after all.

Same could be said of Clownty when Nolan took over, all Pies fans thought 'Conference here we come' at the time. The turn around so far is amazing. Who's to say it'll not happen for JL at the Prolapse?

We need to see how it develops over the next few months before we keep on laughing at them.
I mean it's like a team being favourites for promotion having the biggest budget ever given to a manager of said club and all the fans expecting them to be top three by now at least and having to start thinking, 'hmmm maybe not eh!'

Could happen but county had a better crop of players they were just underperforming.

JL is taking on a poor side and one he cannot really fix until January and then it'll be a difficult sell.

I can still hate em though. I hope they go down I really do. But I'll wait n see what JL does for a while before splitting my sides. The time for the biggest laugh in on here is when the Conf trapdoor closes with them firmly underneath and looking forwards to a local derby at The Impact Stadium, even better if we are the ones to seal their fate which could happen :D
