I think getting rid would go a long way towards winning some fans back over, and appointing someone that is a breath of fresh air. I go back to Ricketts, he came across as just that.
Mills was justified being well received though, purely from a fans perspective and not knowing what he was really like.
His teams used to come here and play us off the pitch consistently with great football and he'd been promoted from this league before.

I think too much has happened now to win fans back with just appointing another manager. The trust (no pun intended) is long gone and its rare if not impossible to win back now. I still believe fan ownership at this club is at the beginning of the end and this years antics and revelations have done far too much damage that we can recover from.

Many fans would be unhappy if a new manager with a win percentage of 40 to 50% was appointed, despite that being a fair recipe for a strong promotion challenge.

Expectations are way too high for our own good, and any defeats in the first few games would have the baying wolves calling for his blood.

Are expecations really that high,after 12 years in this division a play off eliminator is looked at as a good season,a few more of the ambitious national league clubs have sacked there manager even when they have been around the play off zone,like it or not we are just an average non league club who will probably still be in this division in another 12 years or even lower.

My expectations aren’t too high, I have accepted for a long time that we’re a struggling mid table conference team. That is the level the board want to play at, unfortunately it’s not what I want to watch so all my money and effort has been pumped into watching United with my son since the arrival of Keates. Apathy has set in years ago and still seeing fans lauding the likes of Rutherford and Dibble around after what they’ve achieved so far has lost me, so well done board and well done you who ever you are.

Are they though? I think if you have half a brain you could play our fans like a fiddle, you know what they want to see and they will tolerate more than most. A couple of wins, all of a sudden and we have a packed stadium and a packed away end on our travels.

The flip side to that is the current board, who have consistently antagonized fans with 1000 different wrongdoings. That's even before we get to discuss Dean Keates who they absolutely did not want, they were talking a huge gamble in going against the grain and has not paid off. If after the Barrow/Hughes shitshow they appointed the right person most them could have glossed over the previous.

Whilst I don't think it will happen, the situation could be turned around to a degree. If we got in a manager who the fans really took to (think Dean Saunders early pre match comments about putting on a red shirt and fight etc) and the current board kept themselves quiet in the background we we could see a redeemed situation. We wont though, and now we have COVID19 to kick us while we are down.

That's pretty much it.

Expectations may have been higher in the past, but now?

Bloody hell.

You've surveyed every fan have you?

As for your expectations are way too high comment, I'm not sure where to start with this as its so ignorant and dumb it beggars belief.

How did you get on removing that egg from your face after making a fool of yourself the other day about the club ownership?

Ricketts was not well received at all, many thought he was a massive risk. He had us doing ok but he didn’t pull up too many trees, his work here is getting better by the week considering how awful Keates has been. We still couldn’t score under Ricketts and lost every big game.

Hughes, everyone with a brain knew that was a disaster, the most obvious disaster appointment of the lot.

Mills was pretty much universally well received as his track record was impressive but it’s not up to fans to do the digging into what a manager is like away from the football.

Going back many wanted a bigger name than Smith but he was an inspired choice.

Another bizarre post.

Are expectations way too high? I've never seen them lower. Going into the play-offs last year I didn't hear one person say we were going to get promoted. I heard only a handful of people say we'd even get past Eastleigh.

Before the season started I expected us to finish 10th, was that expectation too high?

If you're talking about expectations under Keates and the current set up then expectations should be to avoid relegation. But with a decent manager that isn't a toxic poison at this club and a club board that aren't way out of their depth expectations would be higher, and so they should be for a club this size that has as much potential as we do.

Under this leadership expectations are at bargain basement levels. Expectations should be way higher but I would think most have now come to accept a good season is avoiding the drop to 6th tier and that we avoid Spencer manoeuvring us into the Welsh Prem.
