can he do it???

That whole post was based on fair observational facts, so at least one person will like it.  Tongue
In terms of the clipped question. All we have is hope and we’re soon going to find out. I still think his ‘fame’ has carried a lot of good will which others wouldn’t have been afforded. Let’s hope he can instigate a Wilderesque turnaround post January. The alternative of additional deadwood doesn’t bare thinking about. No manger could expect to recycle such a large squad, so he definitely needs to get more out of the personnel at his current disposal.

Oh I'm being serious, but not the reason you think I am.

I’m not defending you at all sir!!  Wink

Hope not  Shocked, but very surprised you support posters who find constructive comment an anathema (to them).

Can't say I go along with this "he hasn't had a window" theory.......

There have been 15 managerial changes since the transfer window closed. So that's a lot of managers in the same boat as JFH.

Amongst those 15 there have been varying degrees of success, but Jimmy was the first managerial change of the season and has therefore had the longest of all of them to turn things around. The likes of Jack Lester (Chesterfield), Neil Aspin (Port Vale) and Ritchie Wellens (Oldham) seem to have made a better fist of it than Jimmy. Even Steve Lovell at Gillingham has had more success.
Wellens 3 defeats in 16, Lovell 3 defeats in 13, Hasselbaink 10 defeats in 22. Lucketti (Bury) undefeated in 2 games completes the League 1 changes this season.

The most worrying thing for me is that we actually seem to have gone backwards under him.....I'd say that performances now are worse than when he took over. That's just my opinion of course,

I expected more from the players that we signed in the summer, I expected more from JFH than he has now we really are pinning our hopes on him attracting quality in the January window and then moulding the team to get them performing better on a more consistent basis.

Things are not working, personnel are not working, tactics are not working, substitutions during the games are not working.......its a hell of an ask for him to turn things round....can he do it???

At some point certain people will realise it's the act of changing managers that causes the problems rather than constantly blaming the latest one.
Simply choose one from the merry-go-round of competent managers, stick with him and you get the stability that will attract decent footballers.

I don't think there is a magical formation that will turn this team board to tears of people posting their preferred formations each week.

Any suggestions on what we could post instead? Other than our rants about being awful and sniping each at each other, this is all we have left!  Wink

Spot on mate..... one of the sensible posts i have read..

JFH needs a chance to sign who he feel he needs, if this doesn't work out then he is open to the stick but not before then.

We've got Oldham at home last game of the season?

...want to rethink your question?  Grin

I genuinely think you’re being serious as well.

I completely take your point about how our squad is unbalanced but he knew the score. To start bleating about issues now is all bulls***. He is paid to coach and make players better. He is paid to organise and motivate and set up a system to get results. We are a soft touch at the moment 12 conceded and 1 scored in the last five games!
Why sign McGugan and McGiven (4th left back) when short term deals for wide players may be a better option?
I've mentioned before but any manager that plays Revell on the right wing has to be deluded

Your point about Mcgiven and Mcgugan is also valid. But lets not forget, JFH hasnt had a window to work in yet. Mcgiven was signed as backup for centre back when barnett was injured (it could be argued that Poole alone could have offered this though)

Mcgugan has pedigree and was available to us outside of the transfer window. Although again you could argue that he is not a position that we needed. Personally i cant think of any wingers that we could have signed since the close of last window.

I think JFH's team selections and his choice of formations and substitutions are all open for criticism. However, the underlying issue for me lies in just how unbalanced the squad is and that is not his fault.

I mean, 1 winger, how the FCUK was that allowed to happen to at a professional football club?

I am not happy with the situation, i have some reservations about some aspects of JFH's management. But i just cant get angry at him, when he hasn't even had window to work in.
