"So Wael, if i do take up the vacant managerial position at your club, do you have financial plans for investment in the January transfer window?".

"Not this January, no".

They will certainly be looking at dragging out an appointment long enough for the window to shut, job done until the Summer when they will find another reason not to financially back the club

Any of you stat guys know what the ratio of managers is between us and them? As far as I can remember they seem to have had to replace their manager every year - 18 months or so. 

Dopey Darrell was probably one of their longest serving ones in recent times wasn't he?

We've had 4 in 8 years; they've had 7 in the same time (not counting caretaker managers and Coughlan's replacement)

I rovers were a dog he'd wish it to be a horse so he could punch it.

If rovers were your wife SHE would be divorcing you as you spend more time watching babestation with your cacks down.

If rovers were a job it would be Santa's grotto with a few scared children sat on your lap talking about the first thing that pops up.

If rovers were a meal it would be stale out of date crisps and some fake Fanta to wash it down with.

If rovers were a holiday it would be a trip to Billy Smarts circus in the nice big top tent to give the fake fekir an idea for the new north west in the corner by the chaser's night club entrance stand.  

If rovers were a one night stand it would be a canvas one with a row N.

 

 

If Rovers were a football team , they’d  play in front of a few thousand morons whilst wearing jester outfits every week.........hang on a minute..............

Funny how they are all writing off Cotts as a potential replacement. Some of the blue few saying they would never watch rovers again....so bitter.

Out of the list of favourites Adkins, Jones, cotts and Holloway would be the most suited I feel. I imagine they can't afford any of them.

If they really are losing £60K per week  - unless their next manager is paying them then they cant "afford" anyone

Including caretaker managers we have apparently had 42, you 41.

 

Since 2000 we've had 20 and you've had 16.

Kieran Maguire flagged them up earlier this year for the late filing of their accounts,  he doesn't get much wrong. Genuinely believe their future  hangs on the sale of the club....unlucky da shit.

I think you also have to take into account that, we've been in the league for about twenty years more than you, or another way you've been in the league 5/6 of our term.

Martyn Starnes - their CEO - was at a "do" I was at very recently.

He looked like he'd lost £100 and found a Fiver.

Had a face like a slapped arse throughout.

They are ripping each other to bits over on ass chat. 

The loyal and true never wanted GC anyway, they may have been 4th but the football was dull, the man has no class, **** him he can **** off. 

The man hasn't even announced he's going yet. Christ knows what will happen if the Mansfield talks fall through. 

Not seen so much venom spewing forth from the prowed fewers since their last crisis. 

Thank you God's of comedy for this early Xmas gift.

Absolutely comical of the Fewers to be saying how Cockman has totally disrespected the club and it’s fans by considering leaving, this coming from fans (not all) who take to Twitter to abuse Cockmans family!

Tossers.

This time it will be a player manager like Chris Lines or anyone else who has a spare jumper for a goalpost and who doesn't mind clearing up the dog 5hit from the training park.

The main credentials will be how cheap they are, oh and somebody who won't ask difficult questions like;

"You've sold my star striker for how much?!?"

Or "What's my transfer budget"

Or "I've got to drive the transit and pay for 16 lots of fish and chips as well?"

Or "When is the new stadium/training ground/New tent being pitched?"

GC leaving is Wally’s ready made excuse for when the inevitable plummet down the table happens. He or his family cannot afford promotion. Not that it would of happened if GC stayed anyway.

Exactly this, Wally must be delighted with life right now... (not his fault, things were going well on the field, squad proven promotion hopefuls etc -all for the benefit of the fewers, who will be led to believe all Wallys plans were ruined when he was let down by the untimely desertion of his manager).  Wally can shed a few woe is us, crocodile tears while secretly being delighted he won't have to deal with all the unaffordable expense a dreaded promotion would have brought with it..

Wages, Stadium/facility upgrades etc for life in the Championship would have been the final nail, the straw that broke the camels back which once and for all killed off the club... Wally simply couldn't afford a team promotion. 

The 'hard luck' story of losing CG and missing out on a glorious promotion may be just what Wally needs right now to buy himself a little more time with the 'faithful'.

A few of my friends are Gas, they actually go to games (yes I know..!)

They think it’s utterly ridiculous that any league One club wouldn’t move heaven & earth to get SC in, given half a chance - although it is true that he got dogs abuse from a large proportion of the (very small) crowd, at the games he went to watch before GC was appointed.

How the hell haven’t they gone bust yet ? 
fir a couple of years they’ve been losing £65 k a week.  It’s not sustainable.....

So that’s £3 million per year. There must be some gate receipts, they keep selling at least one half decent player every year for a few hundred thousand, plus they get something for just being in League 1.

Their outgoings can’t be that big as they can’t be paying their players much. £3k per week would be a big earner for them. They bought the ground for next to nothing, and other than a trip to “Go Outdoors” to buy their biggest tent, they’ve spent no money on it, so where is the money going?

We all know Wally doesn’t have 2 Dhiram to rub together, but the numbers still don’t seem to add up.

Fewer from the pub reckons they'll appoint a caretaker manager until either the end of the season or the club gets sold, probably an internal appointment to keep the cost down.

Granted that is their opinion rather than them being in the know, but it does sound like the cheapest option, so can't be dismissed.

Wasn't Coughlan already an internal appointment?

Yeah, he was brought in as the defence coach and got the job after Doppy and Stewart left. 

I think he was given a 2 1/2 year contract so I reckon Mansfield would have to buy that out to take him so it could bring the sags a much needed few quid to keep the bills paid. No idea how much but a reasonable guess would be about 200k wouldn't it?

I would be amazed if a first time manager in League One was on much more than about 50k a year, probably with some expenses on top of that.

As for his contract being paid up, you would guess there would be break clauses on both sides, can't imagine the Fewers would have needed to shell out the full term of the contract if he was doing a bad job and they wanted shot of him after 3 months.

So he walks from a club sitting pretty in a play-off spot, for a club in a lower division and a full 37 places beneath them. Unbelievable Jeff.

Has that ever happened before? Is there even a similar case?

Maybe he knows Rovers are going bust. Better to go while his stock value is up.

Skeletor has been self touting himself for ages to get this job at some point

To me if he isn't their next Manager they must be in a serious mess as I could imagine him going in there at a low salary just to help his beloved team

It’s quite an unusual career move for sure, and the timing is odd being as it’s half way through the season. Obviously I am just speculating but I hope the sudden urge to move back nearer to family is just that and not need, I don’t wish ill on anyone, even a Gas Manager who actually seemed a decent bloke.

"Clarke-Harrissssssss" as he'll be known when we sign him for £299,999 in a fortnight.

Not sure if JCH would be so effective in the Championship - he might fancy a pay rise & better surroundings though & follow GC to Mansfield..!

Hollowheads first team talk;

"Right then lads, you know what this is all about.

If we could somehow work a miracle and sneak into the play-offs, fluke a win in the semi-final and the then win the final on penalties...........this time next year we could be playing they  SHIT HEAD BASTARDS" :grr:
