Im first in line to dislike everything about the guy but hes a winner whether we like how he does it personally and professionally and would have got us up in both the last two seasons........thats why Chairmen take a chance. Success can (almost) condone anything.

True, i'm surprised our stadium is still standing from all the weight of silverware :P

Im not saying we won anything with Evans because obviously he left but does anyone think we would not have gone up under him either last season or this just finished as opposed to the failure of DF?

I cringed at everything about the guy and was ashamed at some of his antics and inter action with genuine minded fans but whether you hate him of not he has achieved success.

No, we were crap in his last few games and he knew it... He jumped ship after the coventry game because we weren't going to go up and it would of labelled him a failure

Or he jumped ship because a job came available 2 minutes from his house.

Which last few games do you mean? Because his last ten league games were W6 D3 L1. If we could have stayed that crap for the next ten we might have gone up.

Steve Evans' last three games were:

Mansfield Town 5 Newport County 0
Exeter City 0 Mansfield Town 1 (Exeter City made the Play Off Final)
Mansfield Town 1 Coventry City 1 (Coventry won the Play Offs)

I wish DF could have reproduced some of that Steve Evans crap in our games against Northampton, Oldham, Stevenage, MK Dons and Newport County. :lol:

His last game against a 10 men Coventry for most of the match was shocking and his post match interview was.

Evans didn't sign anyone, he doesn't start until June 1st.

The guy who signed today had been at Gillingham for two seasons, on loan from Spurs.

To answer the above, loathe him as we do, I have no doubt we would be a league one club now if he had stayed.

I do, we were not top 3 when he left and were about to embark on a very tough run of games. The blokes just a fraud, can't believe we still discuss his time here as if it was good, it wasn't. He'll fail at the Gills.

How very dare you call anyone a fraud. You'll upset Bella Lugosi.

If it's a soundbite of Evans talking up what he's allegedly done and how amazing he is, then i'd take it with enough to salt to keep Mansfield's roads clear over winter ;)
