Our board took the lazy option and went after the one person who stated clearly he wasn't interested just because he was already here.

You don't blame the unsuitable employee when they get given a job they should never have got, you blame the employer. But not here it seems!

Incredible stuff.

From what I heard, he took rather a lot of convincing just to become assistant.

The main extenuating circumstance being him being out of his depth and that he should have never been anywhere near our 'long list', let alone shortlist of potential managers.

To actually get a 3 and a half year deal is beyond parody.

But yeah, let's keep happy clapping season after season of failure.

You are such a wum…

Based on budget and everything else that's happened, I'm not sure how finishing just 5 points off top is failure. Unless any season without promotion is failure?

That said, there are many things we could have done better... most of which stem from the extremely poor decision to appoint Barrow.

The failure was not to capitalise on the great first half of the season we had. The fact we made the PO's was a relative success in the self inflicted circumstances and was in spite of rather than because of things that happened.
I won't look back and remember this season as being successful though. The only thing we'll all never forget is the January circus act conducted by the board.

Isn't every season without promotion at this level a failure?? I'd bloody well say so!

The day this club accepts being 4th in non league football, its gone for me.

Jesus, when did our standards drop so low??!!

The extremely poor appointments of both Barrow and now Hughes have consigned us to continual failure. At least Barrow bailed when he realised it wasn't happening. Hughes will no doubt get a pay off in about 6 months time and we'll be back to square one.

We offered it to him, he said no, we started looking elsewhere. Barrow turned round and told us he wanted a crack at it. AT THAT POINT IN TIME, it looked a solid appointment. Would allow us to have a bit of consistency and the players wanted to play for him. Then a few weeks in he decided he didnt want it. Barrow gets off with little to no blame here, and he should cop far more. He even said he was going to stay on as assistant manager.....before backing out of that.

Easy to say he is "unsuitable" after the fact isnt it.

I think his acceptance was a holding ploy waiting for DL. Once he knew it wasnt happening he bailed. The board said they knew his decision for weeks.

Call my cynical but thats my opinion.
