  1. Nice, professional, clean exit. Well done Lee.
  2. Good man. Well said Lee. Professional at the end. Good.
  3. Should have been in the playoffs this and the last two seasons. The fact that every year Lee couldn’t capitalize on a strong start and instead had to try and arrest a slide down the table, was ultimately his undoing.
  4. Not as bad as when Wilson went, a 24 year old me ranted on here for ages
  5. I think it’s about management and coaching not ability as a player. The men’s games is littered with great players who failed as coaches and great coaches you never played to any great level.
  6. I think it’s a scale. I think he did alright. I also think it was a failure how he seemingly let the side slip from nailed on play off positions each year. Its about perspective I suppose. For me the improvement was that the annual loss of form and slip down the table wasn’t as bad each year. Theres a difference between that and slow climb up the table each year.
  7. Not withstanding reaching a ‘technical’ bar for appointment, having a woman coach In the team would, IMO, bring something really different. When I’ve coached juniors, having a female presence has helped widen the approach and understanding of both players and coaches.
  8. Absolutely his tenure has not been without its challenges, but these are the challenges that the Steve Lansdown project will continually throw up. At some point you either deal with it or you move on.
  9. Yep, all good points. I think everyone now agrees he just reached his ceiling and despite three good years, never had the ability to finish the job. With that in mind and promotion being SL’s goal, he quite simply isn’t the man for the job.
  10. It’s statistically true. Our final goal difference and points total during his tenure is as follows, Ive kept his first part season in for context: -7 55 +6 70 +9 67 -6 54 -17 52 I don’t think it’s amazing to be honest. Especially bearing in mind that from 17/18 onward, we have (for sustained periods) been well inside the top 6 and yet never made the play offs. Thats a massive failure. If the bar is that “at least we didn’t get relegated”, then that’s pretty lamentable.
  11. To be fair, when the shoe was on the other foot.
  12. It was completed the wrong but at the time. A baffling decision that flew in the face of everything we try and do off the field. Fir that money, surely Mark Ashton had other younger, prospects lined up?
