I would like to take the opportunity (on the off chance that this will be read) to thank Chris and Martin for their efforts and wish all the very best in the future.

It is unfortunate that it hasn't worked out but I sincerely hope they bounce back soon.

Good luck chaps!

Matt

Thank Goodness Bonser has come to his senses at last. Maybe too late but you never know.

At least I feel a glimmer of hope this morning :D

I echo the sentiment above...thanks Chris/Martin for your efforts and good luck for the future.

Thank god!
Too late though.This should have happened after the 4-1 home defeat to tranmere on the 23rd October!

Chris Nichol is at most home games.Surely he can see the problems and be able to do something about them?--No midfield etc...

I disagree. I think the players had lost all respect for Hutchings and apart from having no organisation from him, they'd lost motivation to even try. I think there will be instant improvement in that respect. We just need someone who can sort the defence out to play as a unit and results will improve quickly. We just need to pick up results in the key games coming up, Tranmere, Bristol Rovers, Dagenham etc.

Good news - best of luck to both of them in the future, but I fear this is at least a month too late.

This is a BIG appointment, now...

Over the moon! at the same time disgusted with Bonzo and the board for letting this drag on and putting us
in a position where it will need a miracle to escape from.

Agree completely - with a decent midfielder bought in.

I think Chris Nichol would make most sense, he's been going to most games and has the discipline needed. I would love to see Sir Ray back though, he could galvanise the club, bringing together the many fractions, even if in the short term. Graydon and Nichol together maybe? I would certainly have to see more games this season if either of those two were back in charge. (Taking baby steps towards considering going to increased price home games)

A agree (or disagree) too. There are now some 25 games left, more than enough time to mould this squad of decent players into a unit and achieve some vital results. If we can beat these relegation rivals in the forthcoming games, that will be a major boost and a good step forward.

Onwards and upwards!

Fantastic news! Is it too late? We have 2 massive games now against Tranmere and Bristol Rovers, lose them and it's all over.
