GM's team,GM's lieutenant in charge and we have now gone 11 games with only two wins and barely a couple of goals to rub together. Now tell me that Mandaric was wrong to seek a change and that I am stupid.

Changing the manager solves nothing, the problem has always been the lack of investment in better quality players.
Less than 1/2million ? - compare that to the other teams around us .
Thats the reason for the results - or lack of them.
With that level of investment we should be 3 from bottom not 3 off top !!
I hope the arrival of Dave Jones will loosen MM's wallet otherwise he will be as frustrated as Megson was !!
I also hope Dave Jones can resist the temptation to tell MM the truth otherwise he'll go the same way as Megson .

Agree10 Disagree5

In principle you are quite right. Frequent managerial change is always questionable. However, we were sliding beyond the point of even being secure for the play-offs. Like you, I have a longstanding respect for the Megson family and would have loved Gary to succeed. Nonetheless, it wasn't happening and wasn't going to happen. As to investing in players MM had to be sure that any money given would be well spent and, clearly, he didn't think it would be. We have now to let our heads rule our hearts and face up to facts: the same facts that MM had to face.

Lifelong Owl

Agree4 Disagree1

As usual I find myself agreeing with a lot of what you say.
The issue I have, as I think you know, is the way MM conducts his business.
I believe all hardworking people should be treated with respect - even football managers !
I can't help thinking that there was unfinished business between MM & GM going back to GM walking out after 6wks at Leicester? Powerful men like MM don't like to be crossed, and sacking Gary from his dream job at S6 will be sweet revenge. I could expound at length about a series of events which I feel support this view , but I'm sure you and others would call me nuerotic so I'll leave it at that.
Regardless of all this I too am a lifelong Owl , so I'm 100% behind Dave Jones and I'm confident he'll do a great job for us if he's given the time ? - and some of the financial support for the team that MM keeps promising but we've yet to see.
Fingers crossed !!

Agree1 Disagree4

Megson spent 125k net (taking into consideration of in's and out's) - which suggests maybe he didnt believe in GM after all - hope that he will now believe in Jones and will spend some cash and speculate to accumulate

Agree2 Disagree0

Madine - 800k
lines - 50k
ogrady - 300k
jones - 100k ish

He did spend some money. anyone having a go at mandaric are way off. i love mego, but a change in manager means financial backing, change in style of play (cos players will have to play for their spots not), n hopefully get this 2nd spot. UTO

Agree1 Disagree0

Obviously don't know what "net" means ??
Megson sold players and didn't get that cash back , hence previous post - 125k net - that means what he actually spent !
And it won't be long before you're all having a go at MM - we're just the first to see the light .

Agree0 Disagree0

Plus Madine was signed by Irvine!
