Appreciate what you've done for this club over the years but I think now may be a good time to go our separate ways.

Have a think at least.

In football you sometimes get bummed 4 nil by a good side after a long away trip. Why don’t you and the rest of our pony fuckpig ‘supporters’ go a separate way?

And if you’re a trolly all’s well. That goes out to all the fuckpigs

A wise man once said...

"What a MASSIVE reprieve we had in the summer and yet the nothing changed. Scoffed at the second chance given.

Cheap 'yes men' management and cheap players. We got lucky ten or so years ago, can't see lightning striking twice.

Making the same mistakes year after year and yet still expecting the outcome to be different?"

The great thing about Lewis Hamilton is that through his partnership with Tommy Hilfiger we'd be able to get cheap kits. Obviously, we'd have to overcome the sick feeling about wearing things made slaves who have been trafficked, but if Lewis Hamilton can do it, we can too.

Who does he sell to?

How do we know the next owner will be as invested as Wallace?

How do we know the next owner won't be another Victor Green?

How do we get someone in who will make sure we do as much for the community and off the pitch?

Posting stuff like this with no thought or potential solutions is a waste of a click.

Westley has been our most successful manager. Snagged him from Farnborough, he was pretty inexperienced.

In contrast, we had Peter Taylor who had huge experience.

The type of experience is important. Sadly, we're in a situation where we have time, that if Westley were ever a good idea, this would be it. I am NOT suggesting he is the answer, we need to move on, but we need someone ambitious, hungry, motivated, and who knows how to build a cohesive team.

Honestly, I'd take Mark Roberts. He's been working with a lot of teams recently, knows the club, the fans, and is a fierce competitor. Consummate professional, goal-oriented. No idea if he'd be interested though, likely not, he's working on an MBA.

Yeah, I don't think he'd want it. Just thinking of the type of person who would be good. Experience doesn't mean they'd be a good fit any more than no experience means they can't do the job. Everyone starts somewhere.
We've seen that experience doesn't mean anything.
We've seen that playing under the best managers in the world means nothing.
We've seen inexperience be successful.
We've seen managers stab us in the back.
It's all a risk and seemingly good decisions go wrong, and risks pay off.
This doesn't only happen to us, it happens to all clubs. Some ride it out longer, and some fix the formula.

That's a fair shout, I was more talking about someone in that mould, which would include him. I was addressing the dislike some have for up and coming managers in favor of experience. We've seen it all, and none guarantee success, we it's about the right person at the right time. I think he'd do well, but accept there is a risk to status if it goes wrong.

If anyone can crack management from a standing start it's him. He is, in fact, already our second most successful manager in terms of EFL results. He is intelligent and inspirational...and sadly, I don't think he would touch it with a barge pole.

All this Wallace out stuff is bollocks and needs nipping in the bud. He’s a good chairman.

He does need to find someone who can recruit a manager and players though. Leon needs to go, the absolute wank we’ve had on the playing front in the last few years is testament to the fact he isn’t doing his job well enough.

Who would come in? Who will bank roll the club? Far easier to get a new manager, coaching staff and players at this time. What he needs is support finding a suitable manager.

For everything people say about PW, he hasn't run the club into non-existance (Macclesfield!)

Short summary accounts don't tell you much at all. I doubt we publish all the detail, only what is required by the rules.

And as any accountant will tell you, published accounts are 'flexible' and can say what you want them to say to an extent, depending on how you separate the assets and amortise them.

Wallace’s track record of managers has always been shit, so I don’t think it’s down to anyone else.

That said, I do believe he gets suggestions from other people on who to hire for certain roles. For example I would imagine Lennie Lawrence connection from from Alex T’s time at Newport. Peter Taylor was down to Bob Makin.

We can't get rid of him. End of.

Only he can decide he's had enough.

He owns the training ground, that's gotta be worth a mint. If I was him and was being driven purely by money, I'd get planning permission for housing, trouser a good few million, move the squad back to the old training ground and close the foundation and academy set-up which don't turn a profit (and will lose even more without the EFL subsidies we won't have next year).

Sell to the wrong buyer and that's a very likely outcome.

And keep the nursery, a very profitable little business.
