Default Barrow, Cheap Option & Danny Ward money

Very early days in his managerial reign but the signs are not good.
After Andy Davies you would have thought we would have learnt our lesson with promoting an assistant manager. Davies blew last season for us and we are now on a similar downward spiral-Salford was a oneoff.We did not however have to pay off Davies luckily-however in Barrow we have a 2.5 year contract situation and an assistant on same deal. Why on earth did we not just give him a deal until end of season with a renewal dependant on performance-no one would have questioned that given Barrow's 13 year sabbatical from managing. Seems virtually like we have the money for once so let's show it.
I did have concerns about whether Barrow was right person to spend Ward monies and some of the signings are questionable already. Now concerned that the next installment of the Ward monies might be in relation to a change of manager.
The board were forgiven for Gary Mills fiasco and the Andy Davies naivety. If Graham Barrow does not work out the calls for a change will resurface. The board do a huge amount of brilliant work on an unpaid basis but fans only have a certain level of tolerance. Did say when appointment was made that it could backfire on the board which gives me no pleasure whatsoever.

Barrow is not the answer. He has favourites. Some players not been given a chance. See how we get on but if we still don't win away from home and we still cannot score then alarm bells should be ringing from the boards point of view and fans as well!

If results don’t changed he can be sacked, simple. Contracts meant nothing these days. However he deserves a few more games with the new signings but if it’s still not good then I hope the board don’t dither and do the right thing

Only thing that worried me was his lack of rotation in recent games.Thought we'd see some freshening up at Salford,during a very busy period,but gave him benefit of doubt,'important game','best side' and all that.But frustrating on Sat before game,when I saw him putting out more or less the same side AGAIN [our fifth game in 14 days,and another to come tonight].We don't have a huge squad,true,but we have had options available and his reluctance to freshen things up gave me the impression of someone who's not that flexible in his thinking.T'was a worry, to be sure.

I sincerely hope to be proven wrong.

I like Barrow .

The thing that worries me is whether he is too old school and dated in his ways. Bringing in Newell didn’t ease these concerns.

I think a lot of players are too blame for tonite.
To perform so badly after Saturday shows a lack of respect for GB and the fans.

GB knows the squad isnt good enough hence 3 signings and maybe a few more are needed.

I think Grant will prove a huge mistake, Summerfield seems lost, Wright isnt good enough for CM and Young is out of his depth. Add Ruthers and Roberts to the mix and its hardly a surprise we look disjointed.

GB can make changes this week and I think needs to consider the same for the next league game. If we leave it as it is we will get the same results.
Hopefully Walker is back but it then needs a new CM with him and switch to a more solid 442 with Tollitt RM and Beavon LM. At least we will get effort.

Grant was signed originally by Ricketts so did not have to extend his deal at all. Surprised Barrow did not go after Henry Jones from Bala (Fylde last season) given he would know him. Would score more goals and definitely cheaper.
Needs to realise quickly too that if you do not score you will not win games-so not sensible to play Summerfield, Rutherford, Beavon, Grant, Wright together as all are poor finishers unfortunately.

Defences win titles, goals win games.
Based on the the 5 games then were going to struggle with both.

3 games in 2019 and no goals and no clean sheets.

Pretty damming Pagl-and you still get people turning round saying can't win them all or let's stick together.. Barrow mentioning centre half and not a midfielder does not bode well either. Risk is will end playing long ball and he will be the new Brian Little. That would make the Racecourse toxic.

The thing is this board are to blame for the managerial farce thats been going on since gary mills. They take the cheap and easy way if all these managers were ringing up to apply for the job why did nt they get an interview this board are scared to spend they will always take the cheap option again and again.as for an invester comong in do you think they would hand over the reins to them and not be in the limelight not a chance in hell they think they own this club and to be honest they are f--king it up slowly and surely
