    Scunthorpe and ourselves were on the verge of promotion to the championship. Now both clubs looking at trapdoor to non league.
    Common denominator is SM

    I’m no McCall apologist but how many managers have we brought in, only for them to go, and the same players remain. This is such a weak squad and with the exception of Watt and Staunton, who would come in for the others? Wood is regressing, whether that’s the wingback role I’m not sure.
    We don’t even have players that can do the basics for crying out loud. As I said earlier, you could bring any manager into the club and unless he’s got the back up staff then nothing will change.

    Scunthorpe have had 2 managers and over 48 games since McCall was there.
    If your using that argument you should be looking in the direction of Bowyer as a primary cause of our current position !!!

    one thing that is certain is that there'll be silence from Sparks until we see 'McCallball' tweeted by him and the club when we beat someone at the wrong end of the table by a couple of goals..

    a lack of communication from the director of communications is deafening.

    I don't know but it's not working.

    Considering Rhodes has been part of the development for ages I am not shocked.

    Rhodes is an awful CEO for a football club..Useless.

    So why would buying in a manager work seeing as you have no idea when it last worked?

    You smoking funny stuff?

    A club should have a vision. A plan to on and off the pitch then you need a manager to fit that plan and it should be the best manager you can get. If that manager is working wonders at another club then go and get him.

    Yes, you have to pay compo but so what. Bradford City is just a club without a plan because we have a money man as CEO which just doesn't work in football.

    It would probably cost us to get a couple of signings in and they would want it on there terms.

    i have some sympathy after yesterdays defeat as you cant deny we had a substantial list of injuries. I knew we would lose with that team.

    lets face it McCall is still saddled with plenty of the rubbish from the Bowyer era in key positions, BRE, POC, Donaldson.

    His signings are (in the main) probably the better of a bad bunch, hopefully he can improve us in January.

    Saying he was happy with the squad left himself wide open to criticism, he needs to wise up in what he says. Lets hope the penny has dropped on this squad and he is not kidding himself anymore.

    Dont write us off yet! Lol

    Sorry Stuart i dont buy that youve got a massive job on your hands lets hope you have some magic lined up for January or you will be finished here.

    McCall can not be trusted in signing anyone else.

    McCall out.

    I would rather we got rid of McCall and allowed a new manager to have time to get new players in.

    I don't see how McCall can be trusted to sign players. Decisions have to be made now on McCall I think.

    Highlights a lack of planning.

    Again I am amazed people are shocked that are in league 2 and in danger of going down to non league.

    Get rid, get rid.. then what? Who?

    Surely you realise by now that it's not the manager, it's the whole set up. Your the one calling for change at the top and that's where it needs to start. We're almost better off having McCall in place to oversee any changes above, unless a whole suite of changes happen. Owner, CEO, Manager, the lot. If the players are poor in basic footballing skills, then no amount of cajoling will work.

    McCall should be scouring the free agent market to bring someone in. If he'd have done it when he complained they wouldn't be fit back in October, they'd be ready now. Just when we need them.

    Agree, McCall has got a poor track record of recruiting for us. He got lucky inheriting a strong squad from Parky,

    New CEO or not, Rupp needs to act now. I have no faith in McCall being able to turn things around


    Personally, I dont think Rupp will act during this season. It's a season of drifting under Rhodes and McCall, hoping that we stay up.
