I for one did'nt enjoy the football under Evan's. Worse than that was his and his side kicks touch line antics.

Also Dan you are the one who goes on about Evans and Flitcroft.

Time to move on.

Think about it like this. If you have no idea about what style of football we want to play, how you you bring in players who fit that style or plan training sessions to embed that style?

I was ecstatic when we brought Clough in, but honestly I think he is well past his sell by date. I can’t see a way back from here, we are a complete mess.

The last three managers who had a clear identity were Cox, Murray and Flitcroft.

Evans threw money at it.

Everyone else since Curle has been a disaster.

If I could bring in anyone tomorrow it would be Flynn. If he doesn’t want it then Murray or Curle who might both be gettable.


Lazy comment. Evans liked to have at least 2 players per position and is accused of 'throwing money at it' yet we could do with a squad of his right now couldn't we? Also Flitcroft had a player on £5,000 a week, not the manager you're accusing of throwing money at it.

Also it depends on what you mean by "clear identity". I'd like to know what the 3 managers you mention identities were.

Dan, did you really just accuse someone of a lazy comment?

You’re one of them who won’t give Evans any credit. How you can’t have enjoyed any of his games I don’t know. Maybe you’re like a few others on here who have an opinion but don’t go to games. And I think you’ll find it’s other people who bring it up before I do, I just reply because of the myopic people on here who make me sick. The ironic thing is that if you look back at some of the Flitcroft posts when he was manager YOU were one of them who was moaning about him! I did post examples but it got deleted so feel free to check yourself.

Dan you are just going over old ground. If you enjoyed the football under Evans that's fine. I attended the games under Evans (and games under subsequent managers). I found the Evans games hard to watch as I was distracted by the touchline antics.

No doubt I did have a moan about Flitcroft at the time we failed to get over the line in regards to promotion. Like the vast majority I was very disappointed. However, the majority of my posts would have been in support of Flitcroft especially when he was sacked. I still think it was a very poor decision and a major factor as to where the club is now.

We've had four managers since Evan's jumped ship, so it's time to move on.
