[b][b][b]I have to say my head dropped into my hands when I heard that the players had been subject to ' what a load of rubbish chants' [/b][/b[/b]]and also Steve Evans response. I really think this is a time for cool heads and a sense of perspective.
When Steve was appointed there was an immediate uplift in expectations fanned by Steve's ego and comments about what he's achieved before, As he will know football is about here and now. In my view we all got carried away and that wasn't helped by being made bookies favourites.
But this club is moving forward
- best squad ( and it is) for a number of years
- a high profile manager who will deliver ( and he will). If he isn't happy he should go - he hasn't got mystical powers and we will get another good manager
- an owner and CEO who are committed and efficient
- a fantastic pitch
- an improved off the field experience ( ok some hiccups but going in the right direction)
All I ask is we , the supporters get behind the team. They aren't rubbish and there are bad days at work as we all know. Abusing them won't help. And Steve - there are no glory hunters at this club and certainly not among those who travelled. I hope on reflection you will appreciate your comments were not the best and we all want the same thing
Chance for us to all make it right on Saturday - COYS

People have got this all wrong. Evans was calling the fans who boo’d and gave stick. He isn’t calling every stags fan a glory hunter or whatever.
Since we’ve had evans, it seems like a lot of people think that we should be winning nearly every game and we should be playing like brazil. This ain’t gonna happen, we’ll have bad days and good days! We win togethe, we lose together. Some folk just have to accept defeat a little more gracefully.

Martin Shaw wrote:the phrase he used was "glory days" not "glory hunters". Although probably has the same meaning.

You're right, Steve Evans is my father
Bros wrote:This may seem a bit daft but I think it all started before the game. The Colchester stewards had herded us into a small section of the stand probably underestimating the numbers. So by the time half a dozen men came in at 5 to 3 it was pretty full. They tried to sit in the cordoned off area and when they were told to move they started mouthful off with plenty of the f and c words. After 10 minutes the police got them to sit down in front of us. After a few more minutes of abusing the stewards they turned their attention to the players especially after the goals. After half time when they were late back presumably after more pints they started again on the players particularly Macca who was up and down the wing in front of us. The abuse seemed to pass to others.
I don't know if anyone knows who these guys were, I don't recall them from previous away games. Perhaps they are just glory hunters

There are people who, like me who have been critical of him and don't like him, but simply want him to improve. That's a big difference to wanting him out.
There's only one way Evans will leave and that's when he puts his notice in.

He is the best chance of us progressing. We need to be fully behind him, his management team and all the players. Just let him get on with the job and judge him at the end of the season.
