  1. I think that's right, next season must be the one to use our younger players rather than sign anyone Moore, Walsh, O'leary, Morell, Vyner etc.
  2. He's bound to give that impression now, he needs some wins on the board before he can start contemplating it. It wouldn't really be any different from when Millen and Tinnion were given the main job, SL's done it before. The more experienced candidates will want to dictate terms and SL won't change the structure of the club for them, they'll only get appointed if they conform to the system. Of course if he doesn't get wins then it won't happen.
  3. I don't see how you can assume they were "part of the problem" without knowing how much input they had on match days compared to LJ, they deserve to be given a chance. If Dean Holden does well in the last few games I think he might get the job on a short contract, the plan under the new set up was always supposed to be based on continuity rather than revolution
  4. Depends where he ends up, I doubt Macclesfield could afford either of them, LJ would probably only get offered the job if he was prepared to double up as kit man
  5. I'm not getting excited like some on here until I know who's getting the job, hope they've got someone good lined up, not a 'Benny'! LJ had to go in the end but there are a lot worse managers out there unemployed.
  6. You have to assume Jon will be the club owner at some stage so it's right that he has a senior role now while his dad's still around, let's hope he's learning from his mistakes!
  7. I think both Pack and Brownhill didn't show their best form towards the end as they were overused and needed to be rested occasionally. Watched Brownhill for Burnley and he looked really sharp.
  8. We're not back where we started, on average we're probably about ten places higher than pre-LJ and financially more secure due to the profits from player sales and the new stadium. I remember all those seasons of relegation scraps at this level and we haven't had those recently, we just need to improve another five places to be real promotion contenders.
  9. If only he could sort out why our losing streaks last so long he could be successful. It's a trait of him rather than the players as it's happened at previous clubs where he's been manager. More than one of these losing runs means we're unlikely to get into the playoffs, they also seem to happen more often in the second half of a season. On the plus side our winning streaks mean we're never near the relegation scraps which historically we've usually been involved at this level.
  10. No chance, he'll be hoping our good streak will start soon we might not make the playoffs but it would mean LJ is still in a job, it's happened so many times before when he's been under threat
  11. Trouble is the higher profile candidates will find it more difficult to fit in and conform to the 'system' at AG, SL will remember appointing Steve Coppell and how that ended. He's far more likely to get an up and coming coach as he did with LJ and McInness.
  12. If they sacked him before the end of the season they'd put Macca in charge for the remaining games, and if he did ok might give him the job next season, ie a bit like when Millen was appointed. Can't see any 'big name' coming here and having to report to Ashton, and SL won't want anyone who's going to be difficult and potentially upset the applecart.
  13. We do see it but maybe not consistently enough
  14. It's no coincidence we've a shortage of taller stronger players, these are more highly-valued and in most cases beyond our budget. We can get taller players but then they will likely have less skill (think Marley Watkins), we also have a bias to young players who are generally less physical, or when they develop physically they are wanted by bigger clubs (eg Lloyd Kelly and Taylor Moore may go the same way). By going for less physical players we get a higher skill level (eg Jay Dasilva) which we could not afford otherwise.
  15. I get the impression problems with Nagy not totally football related. He went back to Hungary during the break and maybe he's homesick now. Hope I'm wrong but LJ clearly not happy about something probably attitude-related with him
