Very true Fog he commented on the New stand.

Barrow should have been made caretaker manager for a few months in hindsight.

The deal was done before Rickets flew the coop.
Lawrence was approached as he was willing to have Barrow alongside.
Which bits not untrue?

Looks like we agree to me...

Pearson signed his contract weeks before the fan base were told. And it appears Barrow did too and it was release under the "we value loyalty" banner but that decision really backfired as we then believed they appointed an assistant without a manager in place. If the board had told us of GB's extended contract when he signed it we all would have been delighted.
I am sorry but the board created a lot of their own problems by choosing to use information as something they can release when suits them not when it actually happens
Fair point

He is a massive gamble with 15 games to go, if in the closed season maybe worth the gamble not when 5th 4 points off top.. It shows how clueless on the playing side the board is.

Also all the times Harris and Bircham before him rabbited about top managers applying, shows they must of been far from the truth also.

So a massive gamble this appointment for me I feel for him really.

This club could do a TV programme I'm a football manager or an assistant... Please get me out of here.

Never mind as SH would spin great times.

I know you say BH is a gamble and I agree in most respects but isn't a bloke who's lost 4/5 games an even bigger gamble? After the last game there was a large proportion against him continuing as manager. MN also has not gone down too well with the players allegedly ?
So although we didn't really want t o have a change of manager it can't do us that much harm can it?

Barrow was a very poor appointment and we are better off without him. He wasnít up to it and his team selections were a joke - particularly at Fylde.

But itís hisyiry now and we move on. As some say the assistants position is now key.

Yes but plenty of us sharing a braincell said it was a stupid choice giving a guy who didn't want the job one week and the next did... And the thing that wound a lot of fans up was the pathetic spin by Teflon man Harris we searched high and low and the best man for the job was here....with Hughes now getting the job it's obvious more experienced professional managers agent's are saying stay away from that basket case of a club a few defeats they want you gone.
