They have let two managers down, blame where blame is due. Why does the Goalkeeping coach seem to have big say on the bench, if can't sort Conrad out what chance has he with the rest. Leave him in the stand on match days.
Maybe the Scottish manager detected some of the players lacked the grit to get them over the line. Perhaps that helped his decision to walk out on us. To this day, I can't understand why he walked away from having another promotion on his CV.
Don’t pretend to be slow just to help your own theory, Evans left because he was offered a job by a big spending team in the division above that happens to be down the road from his home.
One thing we didn’t lack under Evans was grit, remember all those last minute goals and brilliant performances against local rivals? He happened to leave after playing the two best teams in the entire division, people took those results as a sign we were a spent force.
The players have failed twice when things got to the sharp end. The Scottish manager, who has a lot of experience with promotion squads, may have detected nerves taking over. Yes more money and working nearer home were probably the main reasons to walk out on us,but it could have been a factor.
