Can any Boro fan say...

They would be unhappy if all the management team left tomorrow?

I can't think of a single argument to defend them staying a game longer. Surely we are looking at options by now?

That was painful viewing tonight, i left on the 75th minute.

I've backed Revs all the way and i know we're struggling with injuries but atleast do the basics. Half the team tonight couldn't pass 5 yards. Plus it would be nice to see us shoot once in a while.

I give him Orient at home, we lose that and it's curtains. I hope PW has a few options in mind.

What are you expecting to happen at Orient that we haven't already seen in the ~14 games so far?

This is the problem with the 'one more game' idea.

He wins Saturday and we're all supposed to forget how useless he is?

Then he loses the next 2 games 3-0, and then everyone says "I'll give him one more game".

Rinse and repeat.

Yes, I can definitely see your point. I'm with you on that.
I don't think it'll get any better. They seem to have run out of ideas. We had such a frugal defence last year. What do you think the difference is this year. I can't get to games right now because of medical reasons so I'm curious as to what has changed.

I think the influence that Anang has on the defenders is being overlooked.

Scott Cuthbert is a year older (34). So is Coker (32).

Still, it's delaying the inevitable.

Like even if we win 4 games in a row, do you feel any more confident that Revs knows what he's doing?

It's not purely about the results. Sure, it's a big part of it, but you have to look at the man as a manager. Does he seem inspiring? Does he seem determined? Has he shown signs of being tactically astute? Do the team have a supreme level of fitness? Does the team seem motivated? Has he shown signs that he can make substitutions that change the game? Has he been able to highlight what has been going wrong and how he plans to remedy it?

The only tick in the plus column for Revs is that he seems like a nice bloke, but unfortunately that gets you nowhere.

The only loss from this season compared to last was Tom Pett, and I refuse to accept that Tom Pett was the sole reason why we were doing well (although Port Vale are having a good season, so maybe he is that good...)

Why aren't we doing anything differently? Why isn't Daly playing more? What about Brad Barry? I refuse to believe that those two could be any worse than Andrade and Wildin (at least based on the way Wildin has been playing recently). The man is utterly clueless. He thinks that putting Coker in central midfield against Northampton, so he could play Reeves in the left no.10 spot was a good idea. On what planet is that going to work? He's just banging the same drum, week after week, with no effective changes, and we are getting flogged most weeks.

I would literally do the job for free, and I guarantee that it wouldn't be as bad as it is at the moment.

An interesting Post
I like many, think Revs is a good guy, but what fcks me off is his naivety, and wanting to be the next Pep.
As AE says, that defence is exactly the same as last year,a defence (whoever played there) gave very little away and had one of the best defences in the league.
We strengthen players in midfield (excluding Pett) forwards scoring goals, and yet its all gone to pot
4-2-2-2 Bollocks. wants to play out
Ultimately its about winning
You watch the next man in will play a 4-4-2 or 4-3-3 you watch us win games.
For me, this squad is a decent squad with management wanting to reinventthe wheel at league 2 level.
Surely things have to change

We have played 442 the last 4 or 5 games. If anything we are now worse after an initial improvement!

Probably because they decided before the seaso started how they were going to play this season and signed players specifically to play that way (i.e. no wingers) so now we're putting square pegs in round holes.

We could play Barry right back, Melbourne left back, Wildin right wing, Coker left wing.
We could play Wildin right back, Coker left back, Barry right wing, Andrade left wing.

Osborne also played a large part of the second half of last season on the right/left wing.
Read can play left wing. Daly can play left and right wing.

We have plenty of options, we just refuse to try anything different.

During the Northampton game, he swapped back to the 4-2-2-2 when he brought Andrade on, and pushed Reeves forward and Coker to CM. They still think it's a viable formation.

Yep it is, we're more likely to go 10 without a win if we ever did get 4 wins on the bounce.

I agree their all no's other than he's a good bloke and is trying his best but is out of his depth.

Tom Pett made a huge difference from the moment he joined last season, more so when he got players alongside him of better quality in January.

I assume Barry and Daly have joined Read in the ranks of players we've signed injured and either not picked it up or decided it was worth it, which is what did for Dino.

I've accepted the few shots on target thing but....

'Half the team tonight couldn't pass 5 yards'

This was the most alarming thing for me on Saturday. Basic passes messed up time and time again by professional footballers.

Confidence is clearly non existence and he has obviously lost the belief of the dressing room.

But who would we bring in?

Without a solid Plan B, would it actually make any difference??

I think his position is becoming untenable, but I'd want PW to have someone else lined up first.

Personally, I reckon he's got two more league games.

Sacked on Halloween.

Is someone like Mike Flynn an attainable target?

Kept Newport up after GW, on the cusp of promotion two or three times with Newport too. Multiple money spinning cup runs too. Currently a free agent so shouldn't cost anything.

Two years ago Derek Adams was available whilst we faffed around with Sampson and then GW. He goes to Morecambe who were below us and guides them to promotion the following year.

There's a proven manager available, he's better than what we've got. Seems to make sense to me to go get it done.

We'll probably be in a similar position to where we are now, but further adrift from mid table.

On Halloween, the clock will strike midnight, all will be silent except the faint sound of a polystyrene cup blowing in the wind. From the darkness of South Mimms, something will rise from the depths. A clap of thunder and a familiar cackle... "Destiny will always take over".

Embrace the dark arts. Say his name three times in the mirror and he will return.

Buying cheap managers is a false economy.

As Pete said in another thread, a better (more expensive) experienced gaffer will likely pay for himself through results and gates.

It's the most important fucking role at the club. I'd even swap List for a good manager if that were an option.

We simply cannot afford to keep going for the inexperienced and cheap options.
