Mitchell should never have let that in, but Kioso didnít close HIS man down quick enough!
Yes there were mistakes further up the pitch but that doesn't excuse the fact the the first 2 goals were massive errors by Mitchell

I didn't really rate Cornell but he's streets ahead of Mitchell, as stated on another thread, Lee Nicholls is out of contract at MK, got to be worth a shout?

Mitchell is possibly the worst keeper we have had in a long time.

Cornell howler today. Also an absolute clown.

As I see it, the remit for whoever comes in next season is to rebuild a team with more of a spine to it, with the quality to actually create some chances, to fire that team up sufficiently to win more games than they lose and, ideally, have a tilt at the playoffs (although with the shoestring budget that we're likely to be on, playoffs should be a hope rather than an expectation). I honestly couldn't name a candidate out there who I think is a realistic target for us and would be a better bet than Brady.

Give him the job for 12 months, or, if his conditions aren't met, I wouldn't even mind seeing Sammo and Rico given a crack with an experienced DoF - I actually think Sammo was one of our better managers over the last 15 years and at least had the team playing some entertaining stuff and scoring goals, which is going to be an absolute must if we're not going to have the budget to go for promotion next season (I can't sit through a season of finishing 12th playing Curle-ball).

 NTFC Nut, For christ sake !!!! Sammo, really ? He was that good  he has done nothing as manager since he was sacked. All 3 of them need to go back to the youth set up, if you think that one or all three of them are the solution then i really do give up.

David Oldfield the current Oxford City manager for me. If not, Paul Tisdale, he's always been quite successful in league 2. Another is Kenny Jackett, but he's well out of our league.

Itís a real heart versus head scenario - weíd all love the Brady, Sammo, Rico and Razor team to work (and the cynic in me wonders if KT knows that this is also the cheap option) but itís got to be whoever is the best man for the job. Having said that if it comes down to KC picking another new Manager I donít think any of us would have any confidence in that decision based on his track record.

He was unlucky to be sacked and we've had far worse since, many of whom (Johnson, Page, Hasselbaink) were people with 'track records'. What competent manager do you actually think is going to come here and work for peanuts, sign players for peanuts, get that team motivated to play for the club and give absolutely everything they've got even when the chips are down?

Brady knows exactly what's needed & I'm glad he's not committing to anything until he's discussed the future identify of the club with KT...however if KT does not agree with Brady then i honestly expect someone like Mark Cooper to be appointed!

I've gone from wanting him long term to not wanting him to wanting him...but now Im firmly,  'top bloke but no thanks'.

Reasons?

1. Failure to beat any of our bottom of the table rivals. 5 attempts to do so. Time wasting against Rochdale at 0-0 etc. Way way too negative.
2. Failure to win, even one game away from home.
3. Way too stubborn. Started off with a single striker flanked by two wide players, and simply wouldn't move away from it despite most of our goals coming from set plays, from defenders and midfielders (Watson). When he was forced to move away from it because of injuries (Ipswich) Jones and Chuck played superbly, yet he reverted back to 'type' as soon as fitness allowed him to do so in the following game. We then score twice after he changed it (at 2-0 down) yet for the next game, again...back to 'type'. Couldn't make it up.
4. Reactive not proactive. Always waits until we go a goal down before changing things.
5. Subs. Just terrible, most of the time. Takes off the wrong players, keeps the wrong players on the pitch (Hoskins yesterday was bloody awful), and brings the wrong players on. This is a very regular ocurrence.

If he didn't have a top personality, and was more monotoned in his interviews (like KC was), there is absolutely no way people would want him as our manager. Its Austin all over again!  Grin

Austin and Brady are a way apart, as Austin wasnít that honest was he? He spoke about players and how hard they worked in training, how some were so good they were unplayable on their day, going hunting all that stuff? In a matter of weeks he turned on them, and the players probably knew he didnít rate them all along, seeing through the rhetoric as shallow motivational speeches? You canít tell me Austin didnít know what he had from the get go, and if he didnít he failed there as well? I donít really mean to have a pop at the bloke because you can only play the hand you are dealt, but I think Brady is a bit more genuine in his communication? Statistically irrelevant of any record the next bloke may have we will probably go backwards again if Brady goes. Keep the 3 of them together with some continuity for a change. Brady, Sammo and Rico are as likely to be as good as anyone with the passion and desire for the club to do well thrown in for free?

So recalling your former opinions on change of Managers was it correct to dismiss KC?  I for one believe your former analysis was perhaps correct. Certainly on here the vociferous few on here got there way!

There is a very very long and tedious answer to that Evers and I was having a conversation regarding the circumstances around this topic with someone earlier. TBH I canít be bothered as its water under the bridge, would take the patience of Tolstoy to write and has all been said before in bits and pieces. As indeed has most of the stuff these days?

I'm now of the opinion that it doesn't really matter who the manager is.

We've seen managers come and go. Occasionally we get lucky and achieve some short term success. Carr, Atkins, Wilson, Calderwood, Wider and Curle have all got us promoted from the 4th tier.

But any success is never sustained. At best we might hang around in League 1 for 2-3 seasons but the wheels always come off eventually.

We simply don't have the infrastructure to sustain a League 1 club.

We are a tin pot little club just off the M1, that play in a dilapidated Mickey Mouse stadium with no training facilities. How on earth can any manager achieve anything tangible under these circumstances? Any short term success is in spite of, not because of.....

Until we address these issues we're destined to just go round and round in circles and never get anywhere.

He came across as a really bad loser at Plymouth, with comments that were obviously not true, a bit like KC when he was at Carlisle. But you have to hold your hands up and say he's done a great job at Morecambe.
