Yes, those comments following the 5-0 defeat. He was sacked on the Monday after.

One place above we are now

I'm not sure what 9 and 11 means but no manager gets sacked for losing cup games, it's routine league management. They did lose 5-0 away but it's hardly the first time a team had a bad result. What game against Pish was it that so annoyed you?
He must be the first manager to be sacked for potential future defeats.

I'm pretty sure your intelligent enough to know it was a typo and I meant 'in' but thanks for highlighting it in an 'innocent' way.

I genuinely didnt know what it meant. What was the unforgivable Pish game?

The Posh loss when he made the most ludicrous team line up Ive ever seen a Cobblers manager make. We obviously got destroyed as a result , and Id gladly have sacked him after that night.

Add to that, the stuffing from Bristol Rovers, the Stourbridge debacle and 9 losses in 11, and Christ he was lucky to get given as long as he did.

Absolutely awful manager.

I too would have sacked Page after the BRovers whitewash. He did enjoy a much lauded career with Wales though but clearly did not work out with us. It is well to remember that Page was highly respected at Port Vale before he joined us, much against Vale Fans wishes. Finally as you all know Wales qualified for the 2022 Fifa World Cup for thr firt time in 50+ years. I do wonder sometimes that our attitude to Managers and Players alike is a bit 'Billy Big Boots' especially after a patch of poor results.

It was the "just needs a sprinkle of stardust" and then ripping up the team that did it for me.

I feel compelled to buy you a beer after this post, absolutely spot on.

He played Byrom and Anderson in midfield, 5 at the back and 3 upfront.  We got absolutely battered from start to finish.

Well, his career since being sacked has shown he is a pretty decent manager.
Once you all get bored of Brady and start banging on about his lack of experience I'll take him back. Unless of course Calderwood gets the job.

This post makes very little sense to me.

I can make a vague statement of presumption in it, no idea where or how you've got that from though.

However, if Rob Page is as imaginative as you can get for this mysterious  post Brady era that appears to be looming, I'm glad you're not the guy appointing the position.

Don't tell my brother-in-law that, follows Wales away, mentions all the flaws that we saw in him (no way to change a game etc). The only reason he got the job was because of Giggs. The only reason they got to the world cup was because of Bale. They tolerated him in qatar, and all want him gone now.

I recall hearing the team line up that night and we were like 'wtf'. We've got no midfielders! He then proceeded to take off the only one we had on the pitch at half time and replaced him with another one. He chucked Byron under a bus that night.

My favourite (well least favourite!) Page moment was at Stourbridge. We were around 2 and a half minutes into the 3 minutes of time added on and he decided to make a sub, so wasted about 30 seconds of the 1 minute we still had too play. Then right at the very end we had a corner (which was the last action of the game) and he still wouldn't send the keeper up!

Bloke stole and living and still does. Most useless manager we've ever had, and I include Fenwick in that lot. Nothing against him personally, but it staggers me how he's stayed in the game at all let alone managed at international level. Boothroyd always gets pelters but he did keep us up and nearly got us promoted, plus he did an amazing job at Watford before hand. Page had two (I think) bang average seasons at Port Vale then fcuked us over completely. Thats his contribution to club football management!

Page was a s***e manager, Boothroyd was a s***e manager, and both ended up as U21 managers. On that basis, I would have expected JFH to get the Holland job.

He absolutely chucked Byrom under the bus that night, that is one of the driving factors in my original comment on how I've never forgiven him for that performance.

I can distinctly remember feeling sorry for Byrom, as Posh knocked the ball around like they were playing against a Sunday park team. I was skint at the time too. One of the most tatically inept performances I've seen from a manager in my 33 years as a fan.

He's got by on the skin of his teeth in the Wales job and as someone's already said they are sick of him.

I wholely agree in he's one of, if not the most useless managers we've had, left us in a mess, which sadly was continued by some almost equally as useless managers(2 of which have at least done something credible at another club) Curle has his critics but he stabilised us, brought Goode in and the play off final win was a game to remember.

I'll take Brady 7 days a week and twice on a Sunday over Page, from now until forever.

I think Page's record overall with other clubs and Wales suggests he's not a bad manager, but he was awful for us and deservedly got sacked. As stated on earlier posts he was lucky to last as long as he did. His signings were mostly very poor for L1 level and he completely lost the plot after a solid start. We weren't that low in the table at the time, but once you've lost the the confidence of the dressing room you're finished. It was the same with JFH and Dean Austin, to name but two.
