1. Our budget is being cut
2. Dempster doesn't have any contacts in the game (despite being a professional footballer for god knows how long)
3. Players won't want to play for him as he has no experience.
Let's just wait and see what happens eh? He'll be backed by stags fans this season, and maybe we might surprise a few as there won't be as much pressure on a promotion push with it being Dempster's first gig in league football
The key thing Bobby is the fans expectatations. Will they expect JD to gain us promotion? Will they turn up in the same numbers home and away if we aren't pushing for promotion ?Will they expect JR to sack JD if we are fighting against relegation? In other words do the fans accept having an untried manager means the chances of promotion are reduced?
