Here we go again.
One defeat, sack the manager.
Some if you shouldn't be allowed through the doors if Hayden Road.
ToD mentioned several games, as did the other calmer contributors on this thread. I understood where you were coming from previously, when you argued again the most reactionary poster on this board, but trying to use this again in this situation makes me wonder if you're secretly related to Peaks? As for that last comment, perhaps you should retract it.
In the unlikely event of him being sacked, no one could say he'd not been given a fair crack of the whip, more than 3.5 years in charge my by count. Winning the UCL was expected, but still credit where it's due. The start of 15/16 was fantastic in league and cup, but that league should've been won. The dramatic slide in form was an alarm bell, as was failing to close out the play-off final.
16/17 was choppy and, as mentioned above, another mid-season collapse in form and well beaten in the playoffs. Harder league so that could possibly be excused.
Now this year the start has been up and down, but I've mostly been worried about the atmosphere and attendances at HR. Back in Jan/Feb I, along with many others, was really excited at the prospect of HR and the boost this would give the club, but in the 4 games I've attended so far I've not felt this and I've been disappointed with every attendance so far (even the FA Cup).
I'm not saying a new manager would be a panacea, but maybe it would get a bit of excitement back and arrest what seems to me to be a bit of a malaise at the club at the moment. Would it be any worse than what we have now? If the answer's no, then I'm in favour of a change.
