Well.. i held out hope. Right until the end. But I am going to give BCFC two barrels now. I will take my time to respond. For now, just to say this..

The worst managerial announcement in my lifetime. Reminds me of Les Read being announced at Charlton when the ownership said 'we need to kick on'.

If this is Steve Lansdown's idea of kicking on I want no part of it.

Absolutely diabolical decision.


Yep. I won't be bothering this season. The club have let the fans down.

Twentyman sounds as gobsmacked as all of us.. bewildered actually. 🤣

Dean sounds very nervous, unsurprisingly.. he's coming out fighting. Good luck to him and as others say he is really going to need it.


Dean sounds like a genuine, nice guy. I like him a lot. But it's still a tinpot appointment for a club of our ambition.

Utterly deflated. Listening to him answering GT's questions...he sounds nice enough, but amateur night. 

Simply not a serious appointment. Can't be bothered to waste too much time worrying how it will work out. 

Good luck Dean, you'll need it.

Decision made. Although utterly underwhelmed I will wait and see how Deano does.

My hunch is:

1) No proven manager would accept the restrictions/limitations required. 

2) DH is considered the best option, right now, given nobody else would accept the post or those who would didn’t tick our boxes.

3) He will be given x months, which will indicate if he has what it takes or not.

4) The x months buys time to seek out a replacement. 

Worse case scenario - he fails spectacularly and in x months we are in dire trouble and staring at relegation.

Best case scenario - he succeeds spectacularly and proves he is a quality head coach and we are all delighted to have witnessed his success.

Only time will tell.
