I doubt there's a single one of us, on here or at the club, that doesn't want DB and pals too succeed. So that's that covered!  Grin

What cannot be disputed is that at this level, or the one or two below it, he's got no experience.

Im not concerned about lack of contacts. Gary Johnsons little black book didn't do us any favours. There's plenty of examples of how a lower league player has become their manager and done well. Two I can think of off the top of my head without giving it any thought are David Artell and Ainsworth.

My concern, and its looking at history, is that often when a team bottoms out of league1, the slump continues into the following season and out of the league they go. Chesterfield, Yeovil, Southend potentially this season all spring to mind. We are in a precarious position, and last time when we went with Austin, it was only our much criticised previous incumbent who stopped the rot after a 4-0 (should have been 7 or 8-0) defeat at Mansfield which was arguably one of the very worst performances in our more than recent history. At that time we had some really decent players as well, more so than we currently do. But unlike today, there was a big disparity in wages, which likely caused a dressing room split amongst other things.

As a club, we need to learn about how we went about our business last time and recovered quickly to become a promotion challenging side. Take away the bad stuff that didn't work, and put into place a structure where we could potentially bounce back at the first attempt if we do get relegated.

Personally, I wouldn't want us to stick with Brady until the Summer, go down and then look to replace, and then potentially miss out on the early summer deals because we are in a transitional period (management). A decision needs to be made a fair time before this season ends as to who our next manager is beyond this season...

If Brady was to keep us up, its a no brainer. But Id hold fire for now on any decision; my view since Curle was fired was to go external, but Brady (subs use and last 30 minutes tactics aside!!!) has impressed me. I also accept that my view, like all of our views, is subjective and that many would have agreed with him tactically etc during those games.

5 points from 6 games is no better a return than what we were getting before Curle was sacked. I do however accept that if luck had been with us and our keeper hadn't of been on speed, we'd probably have got 9 or 10 from those games! We've also played nice football, although strangely the one game where we did hoof it a fair bit more than the others, and had a fraction of the possession (32%) was the game we won! Funny old game eh.

Lets see what happens Satdee. See you on here over the weekend no doubt!

edit - above was posted 2 minutes before Brady's announcement. Good luck to him and Rico and Sammo!
