Board meeting to decide Ollie’s future

Post by Rbee » Sun Oct 15, 2017 9:53 am

This week according to The Sun. The board expects us to be pushing for the play off’s and are not impressed with the slow start.

Kenny Jackett is a target should they decide to replace Ollie.

Personally I don’t believe it.

As much as I didn't want Holloway as a manager, and Bircham even less, they have exceeded my expectations for this season already and need to stop where they are for the rest of the season. So much is looking better than any realist expected both on the field and off. The Sun, was, is and always will be a flipping rag.

I never wanted Ollie either and I tolerate him now. He's not up to it really. I'd welcome Jackett or Derry.

Slow but steady has been the message from the top and expectations were low this season which is why I don’t believe the story.

Squad togetherness is exceptionally strong at the moment so why jeopardise that.

You don't shop in the bargain bucket and expect promotion. It's should be a pleasant suprise if it happens. Teams that go up have strikers who can score and they cost proper money.

The trouble is, that was also the message given out in each of the last two seasons and it didn't stop us sacking the manager in November. I agree that the story is probably rubbish, but we do have a track record here.

Funnily enough I was going to start a thread the other day that I believe Ollie is on borrowed time, I also have a feeling we will be in a relegation dog fight before long, I opted not to because I coudnt be bothered with the back lash on here.

I'll always have a soft spot for Ollie & I have very little expectations with the current crop (no goalscorer being the biggest concern) but I think we are only a couple of bad results away from Tony hitting the panic button.

Interesting times ahead.

As for Jacket please god NO!

Utterly ridiculous, mischievous and devious (if true).

Would be complete madness to replace Ollie. I cannot think of anyone who'd do a better job given the circumstances. Perhaps ask him if all his backroom staff are what we need but Ollie himself is a perfect fit. No jacket required.

We haven't won in 9. How can you possibly say Ollie is a perfect fit? Unless you're talking about getting us relegated.

It's a work in progress and whilst the results aren't amazing I would expect most fans are reasonably satisfied.

Far from perfect but plenty of effort and some decent individual and team performances.

Give him until the end of the season and see if there are any my tangible/measurable improvements.
Keep an open mind, but not so open that your brain falls out.

If this is true then it's Ferdinad who's job should be looked at - not Holloway.

And if it's not true? you'll have to find another angle to take a dig at him?

But apart from Barnsley, Burton and Millwall we are up against teams who have more resources than us, And Ollie has had some key defenders out. He has done OK and he is taking us forward in the context of where we are at.
