    If you bring in a number of relatively untried inexperienced players it is critical that an experienced manager is brought in.

    Chuck in some tactical nous and a big character and suddenly the picture may look less bleak.

    I am very concerned about our current situation. Who would want to come in as Manager after so many signings have been made, presumably without his knowledge. Will Swann end up managing the Club?

    Pay enough money and someone will do it irrespective of the players or the insecurity, money talks.
    The problem is Mr Swan may be at the bottom of the barrel so may finish up with rubbish.

    Understand your thoughts ironking but here’s an alternative view. An experienced manager will, understandably, have several sackings on his CV along with, hopefully, some successes. Whilst sackings are regular occurances they usually involve a generous payoff. Knowing our recent record don’t we risk somebody experienced in these matters coming in with a ‘don’t care’ attitude just waiting for his big pay day? Personally I’d rather have somebody with a desire to succeed and make a career as a manager.

    The biggest problem with the current situation is the big payoffs in managers contracts. I believe that option should be removed. So many crappy managers coming in and treating the Iron like a cash cow.

    They start off taking the job seriously, but that doesn’t last long enough. Getting fired and getting the golden handshake should absolutely be taken off the table…

    I presume this is a wind-up?

    So how many payoffs do you think the Iron have made to managers in the last ten years?

    Of course we will get a new manager soon, but when he decides he doesn’t like it in Scunny, he will get himself sacked and walk away with a nice cheque in his pocket.

    Neil Cox is a nice bloke and local, sadly this did not do anything to inspire me.

    Neil is inexperienced as a manager and Ernest Pawn (a difficult character) has assembled a very young squad, with no experienced ‘old ed’ to offer help and advice on and off the field!

    You pay big bucks to young lads who are spoon fed via academies from an early age, and think the word GRAFT is some skin taken from your backside and placed elsewhere on the body. You can’t even give them a rollicking because because mummy or daddy in the family 4 x 4 never did.

    Only kids from council estates had parents who taught them the harsh realities of real life.

    Sorry but the writing was on the wall, National League here we come.

    Naah, look, who in last weekend’s line-up do you think was born with a silver spoon?
    True, spoilt kids can be lazy, but so can kids from less privileged backgrounds.
    If young lads like these look like they aren’t bothered, it’s usually down to the manager. It’s his job to motivate the players and build team spirit, and if it’s not there you have to look at Cox and ultimately at the chairman.

    Whilst I’m reading this thread the Mrs is reading news on the Manchester bombing, 21st century , when it takes 2 hours to get a fire engine to a bombing in Manchester City centre and the person in charge of security for the police was on a 2 hour meal break. But don’t worry, we will learn lessons

    At the start of that enquiry in Manchester the Police said they were unaware of any major concerts in the City that night !! Absolutely appalling that. Security man ignored warnings of a chap with a rucksack acting oddly. All these little things add up. Similar thing happened in the Harrow and Wealdstone rail disaster in 1952, lots of small errors by a few people that led to the crash.

    If there is a major incident don’t expect to rely on the emergency services normally one of them normally goes missing.
