That would appear to be the case and worse still it seems he has not been managed by the board at all. Could all be turned around of course but looking poor at the moment.

And it all comes back down to knowledge of this league. Ricketts knows nothing about the league. And if he thinks he can get players to join us over League clubs then heís deluded. Iím starting to think we should have poached Mark Yates before Askey left Macc.

SR has been a professional footballer for 16 years, so I don't get that he's "inexperienced", he'll be fully aware of how things work in the game, yes, he's never been top dog in a club but he would've seen a lot of different approaches (good and bad) to both internal club management and how to manage external expectations.

I'm not getting worried as we have a spine of a decent team, he's come in 8 weeks ago. He needs to understand the internal workings of the club, he needs to grasp the teams around us in this league, he needs to ascertain our players, he needs to scour the market for what's available, ignore the psychobabble from agents, identify his targets, negotiate with his targets agents, counteract other teams' offers, has to wait until contracts are up at the end of June (in most cases) oh and identify and negotiate his assistant manager and GK coach, whilst also gelling with the current coaches he has here.

Most would agree that is quite a lot to do in 8 weeks, particularly when in a majority of that time players/agents and clubs were down tooling and relaxing for a bit as it was the end of a long busy season......... just relax and enjoy the summer, he will come good.

Not so sure.
I once knew a guy who was one of the best salesmen I had ever met.
Got promoted to Sales Director and was a total disaster.
Being good at one thing doesn't naturally give you the ability to be good at something else.
He may turn out to be the next Pep Guardiola, but that looks doubtful based upon the evidence so far.

Good post SG - a reasonable and logical argument.

My only hesitation would be your last line 'he will come good' - I think (and obviously hope) he 'may ' come good. my reservation being based on the fact he has no experience of this League and that could be a problem.

I'm sure we'll see movement in the next few weeks - we'll have a clearer picture then.

Go for it then pal. Organise the protests instead of sitting at your computer.
