    Heard Ardley and Crosby mentioned, I would welcome someone who played players in strongest positions, has a Plan B,C, and also reads the game live. ( I know this is a lot to ask for a pub league). Would be happy with Greening or Crosby. It’s the biggest move the board has to make. If it’s Dean it’s wrong. I’m ok if the new guy does not have NLN experience as long as they have experience as a reasonable footballer which would rule Dean out

    I wouldn’t want Crosby as he’ll want a high wage and won’t really know a lot about this level. Greening is a good shout, Culverhouse “if Boston don’t gain promotion”. My top pick though would be Billy Heath who’s currently managing Alfreton.

    I’d be happy with any of those 3.

    Worryingly According to twitter rumours are Dean has signed an extension. Fucking hope not !

    WG have you ever watched Alfreton play?

    It’s effective but it’s not what I would call football.

    A massive no to Billy Heath for me.

    Would we be able to attract managerial talent from “smaller” clubs in the National League? If so then Phil Parkinson has done an incredible job for Altrincham, taken them from the Northern Premier League to the National League playoffs playing exciting, attacking football.

    is it fair anyone making any comments when there has been no talk from the club of any change, or are you all already bored, also some already mentioned would be out of our price range anyway

    Time to get old big hair back. Surely he’s up to this league. A mate of mine who lives in Scotter reckons he sees him at his local boozer from time to time.

    Just a quick reflection on the comment by MK Iron –
    “.. have you ever watched Alfreton play? It’s effective but it’s not what I would call football. A massive no to Billy Heath for me.”
    If you look at the poor part -time players Alfreton have and what they have achieved,it’s remarkable. The number of goals scored,the philosophy of “ getting the ball in the box” at every opportunity ( especially at this level of football) is effective and exiting. Do you think Billy Heath wouldn’t use his style with more subtlety if he came here?He has a great pedigree with North Ferriby and other teams. We all have our opinions and hopefully we get the right man in to replace Jimmy Dean.

    I don’t know anything, just saying I haven’t seen or heard anything from the club about the managers situation, and think people are jumping to conclusions

    Quite a lot are just offering opinions mick which is fine but until the board make up their mind one way or tuther then speculation will continue to run rife amongst us all.

    I understand he’s at most (if not all) games.

    Fair enough, just thought I’d point out that he already gets a lot closer to the club than some blokes random boozer in Scotter.

    Ignore what I said about Billy Heath. Better him than old big hair.

    Nothing against getting the ball in the box quickly by the way Bill. It’s the constant petty fouling, play acting and time wasting that is a major part of what Alfreton do that I don’t like.

    Bumped in to Sergio Aguero at the local garage a few years back. Surely he can manage at this level? And he’s a really nice guy so he ticks most the boxes.

No negative one up top rubbish,let’s set our stall out from the off and if Jimmys learnt owt from this season then I would back him but if not he will have to be replaced by ? . The board will decide.

    My opinion

    Should it happen .. yes

    Will it happen .. no

    Not sure how it will work contractually but im predicting JD will be given at the very least the first quarter of next season so 10 – 12 games and depending how these pan out take it from there.

    The risk is getting off to a bad start attendances dropping like a stone the off loading JD replacing him with someone who will be working with players he hasnt chosen.

    Time will tell , not an easy one for the SUFC BovD as im guessing like the fan base some will be split on the issue.

    You’d have to assume the Board aren’t idiots and will have already thought of this.

    Of course .. but im also of the opinion there will be some Board members hell bent on keeping JD (Mr Elliot for one) so expecting strong lobbying to get it over the line.

    Why must we assume the board aren’t idiots, with St Elliott and Ian not so Sharp on there, made idiots of themselves saying they’d bought the club. A board that still employs mussie and if Hilton hadn’t got rid of Daws you know he’d still be here. After the Hilton Era we’re back to continuity from Swanns tenure.

    But has he learned. Judging all the comments the first half we dealt with them, he even said that. Substitutions and the timing of – yet again said same old same old !

    He put a team out against a team that earlier in the week had played 120 minutes, he had square pegs in round holes and having played all season with one keeper listed he puts a new recruit on the bench and reduced his replacement options. Where was Pugh or Corbett – that could have been the option that was required.

    1 striker at home is a certain NO and criminal in a must win game that could have then boosted the fortunes with a promotion that many thought would never happen again if the club had disappeared.

    The club rely more and more on handouts from sponsors and businesses, as with any business the product has to be appealing, some of the costs on the sponsorship side are quite significant – league two pricing (in fact you can get a box at Notts County for half the price if you so wished) so that is a bit of a gamble and at the minute they have the goodwill but sticking with the same guy will see a drop off in crowds and potentially goodwill. The best opp to secure funding came on Saturday but Dean failed massively, wasn’t even close. Big call.

    Ok, I understand. But seeing as I’m only in touch with a few of my family and old school friends these days. I don’t get to matches because I’m a night worker and that includes weekends. I’m glad that he still maintains some involvement with the club. Because I think he would be great if taking the reins once more.
