I've since taken the hint.
You ask questions. The board are on a purge of volunteers who ask questions and have opinions (DSA, 50/50 sellers, photographers)

The board is suffering from a severe lack of diversity in opinions. All board members have similar backgrounds, have served the sane amount of time and faced the same experiences. A constant refreshing if the club board would have prevented this.

Removing those such as the DSA who have opinions and voices is simply worsening our diversity crisis

Would the answer be better to have other on the board and to have an influence on decision making to move the club forward, involving the club/WST members as a fans owned club? Still can't get my head around Bircham, Horne, Bryn Law all leaving over a fairly short period. Reasons have been given for their departures but then have these positions been filled after?
I think on the whole their roles were spread between the remaining board members. Which would possibly explain why the current situation seems to be happening, spreading too thin?

He turned down several other offers before eventually leaving in the January of the following season, the perfect time to leave a club.

John Coleman was at Accrington Stanley for 12 years (their longest ever serving manager) and won them 3 league titles to get them into the football league for the first time in their history. He managed 3 clubs in between returning to Accrington.

Keith Hill took over Rochdale whilst in the relegation zone and they ended up finishing 9th. The following season Hill got Rochdale to the playoff final, the sesaon after that he got Rochdale to the playoff final, the season after that Rochdale got automatic promotion. Rochdale then finished 9th in league 1. Their highest finish since the 1969/70 season. He eventually left after 5 years of service for Championship club Barnsley. Returned to Rochdale 2 years later

Darren Ferguson in his first two full seasons won promotion twice with Peterborough. Leaving them in the Championship before returning to once again win promotion via the playoffs also becoming the top scoring side in the whole country. They spent 2 years in the Championship before being relegated (on the last minute of the season with the highest point total to ever get relegation from the championship) he then left by mutual consent.


None of the above mentioned are comparable to Keates. Keates achieved nothing and spat in the clubs face so soon after being appointed. If Keates had of got us promoted then I for one would have no problem with him coming back. I would give managers like Denis Smith a heroes welcome if he were to come back.

Absolutely, no point making the players nervous in what needs to be a win!!

Thanks for putting this to bed.

Some of the comparisons made on this thread are embarrassing.

Denis got a great welcome in the 1864 last time he was in there, standing ovation as he walked in and all that. Great man who's welcome back any time.

I'm not saying the club would fold... but if people want to press the nuclear button it's best to have a plan for what happens after. Exhibit A - Brexit.

I think the question in your last line should be, how many other clubs would have welcomed a manager back who left us in that situation?
I'm baffled as to why a supporter would not support their manager and want him to do well. Other than to have another stick to beat the board with.

Your question is irrelevant to the issue we were discussing. I, like you, wouldn't have appointed him. End of.

Hardly comparable in any way.

Thanks for your input.

You'd press the nuclear button of removing the board with no plan about what happens next?
