It might have been different for him if he had built bridges with Krystian Pearce and kept Alex MacDonald and Danny Rose. He did have a bit of bad luck as we could easily have beat Tranmere, Orient and Stevenage and we deserved a point at Newport and against Exeter. Who knows?
Give over, the bloke was utterly clueless. His transfer dealings in the Summer confirm that.
I think you will find a lot of GC's clueless signings will be retained by Nigel Clough Mark so they were probably not as clueless as you are making out.
You are falling too easily into the results were bad so every player must be raspberry trap.
Nigel Clough has signed George Lapslie permanently and given a new contract to Harry Charsley. Ollie Clarke, George Maris, Jordan Bowery and Farrend Rawson will be retained by Nigel Clough and there is a good chance that James Perch and Stephen McLaughlin will still be here as well together with Jamie Reid. You could still have 6 or 7 GC signings in the team next season.
Corey O'Keeffe started the season well but has not been given a chance by Nigel Clough. Rollin Menayese also has plenty of potential but it looks like him and O'Keeffe will be on their way out although they could still impress in pre-season.
Most Stags fans would have signed Nicky Maynard as he was our top goalscorer from last season.
Marek Stech has been a disappointment in goal and Aaron O'Driscoll has never featured but he was just signed as a back up centre half.
If we can make just two or three quality signings then it could make a massive difference next season. Cambridge have had a good season mainly due to the influence of Hoolahan, Mullin and Ironside. Bolton have shot up the league after signing Dappy, Lee, John, Williams etc
