There’s so much in Bartonscorpion’s post I’m not sure where to begin.
I am sick of supporters saying “who is there to replace Cox,”
So who is there? We’ve tried umpteen ex players. Knill – another who was brought in to play a crap hand. Got little backing, left and is currently a PL assistant manager. Laws/Wilcox – ’nuff said! Alexander – did what he’s done at every club he’s managed ie do great for eighteen months then start pissing about. Dawson – why? Now Cox/Lillis – just like Knill, forced to play a crap hand in the middle of a global pandemic BUT with no previous experience as a No1.
And those with no previous connection to the club. Robbins – I guess in hindsight he did okay. And he’s proved since he can get a team promoted from L1. Baffling how he caught the same disease as Wilcox and Alexander! McCall & Hurst – experienced, but not only did they yet again have to deal with some poor committee signings but with decent players who were throwing a strop! Neither were given enough time with their own players. Hurst clearly fell out with the Big Boss. Never a good idea at the SVS.
Mr Swann should seek advise because although he appears to have a good record in business, he gives the impression he knows very little about selecting and employing football managers,
But he seems very good at employing yes-men who are happy to take on the players the committee selected from agents recommendations. The same managers who are happy to get sacked with a pay-off just to get away from the club. I expect this to be repeated ad infinitum whilst the present regime is in place.
An experienced hard-man type manager to give them the hairdryer treatment? I think Swann would throw that CV straight in the bin!
No good spraying the leaves for greenfly if the roots are rotten!
