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.



Disagree with this except the opening statement!  Brady almost certainly would not agree. To many on here we are a great Club with a proud history! Not sure why you feel the need to publish such an OTT opinion? Grudge?

Given that we may be trading places with Morecambe it would be interesting to see if he actually wanted to come here.  Looking at the League 2 table is incredibly depressing - more than likely no Cambridge and a complete lack of local derbies.

According to the sun cobbler's keeping tabs on Derek Adams at Morecambe.

Possibly true but why would he swap Morecambe for us? He might get them promoted or at least in the play-offs. If they are in the play-offs and fail to get promoted it could be the end of May before we can appoint him. By that time we'll behind the clock in transfers dealings and player contracts.

We still have the big local derby against Stevenage where Alex Revell appears to be doing a decent job after they just avoided relegation last season. Maybe due to signing players of the calibre of Lines and Martin.

A very good point - whatever KT does he needs to do it as soon as possible so we get our retained list and recruitment sorted.

             Good, truthful post, the problem is with a few on here is the truth hurts! It hurts me but at this moment in time I can't see anyway forward or anything changing.

Grudge? What are you on about?

What's OTT about it anyway? It's my opinion about the state of our club. If you disagree, fine - you're entitled to put forward your arguments to the contrary. Which by the way you haven't done. Saying we're "a great club with a proud history" doesn't really cut it.

Thought JB, MR and Sammo overachieved with what they had, injuries and near unplayable pitch. Hope JB is given chance and backing next season. The infrastructure, as it stands, is a huge handicap to whoever takes over next season.

Chester are a great club with a proud history...Not lost this year either... Grin

We are what we are, L2 or lower  is our level, no money = no decent players..and no dreams..Although maybe we could win the National League and FA trophy at some time in the future.

If you disagree, set up a poll asking what year we will be playing in the Championship alongside the scum..
That scum team down the road seem to do rather better...

Brady is the right man IMO.

Cares about the club massively and isn't just here for a pay check.  I think he's an excellent football coach and is someone I believe can finally properly integrate and develop youth team products into the first team squad.

He's the first manager since Wilder that is worth listening to pre and post match.  He gives honest and detailed reasons of why things are happening that make sense without throwing players under the bus.

I completely accept there is a risk involved with him taking the job and he WILL make mistakes as he has already shown.  But I think he will learn from them and will adapt as all good coaches do.

My only concern is whether the job is too big for him emotionaly.  Mentally he seemed too affected at times this season and it isn't going to get any easier when it's your full time.

A bit harsh. We are an L2-L1 yo-yo club. Always have been always will be.

To their fans Chester are probably a great club but they never made it to the old Division 2 let alone the old First Div of Charlton, Vernon,Bell, Stiles etc
 
You are entitled to your opinion and best of luck to you! If you wish to believe your debilitating mantra; the majority of supporters probably donít share it. I was bitterly disappointed with the display on Saturday as I prefer them to go down with a fight!

Wetherby rd is this the one in Harrogate or Grangetown area in Sunderland? If Grangetown that's were GPC came from; he kept quiet about that!

Jon Brady will tell anyone exactly what is required to move this club forward.
The person that needs to stand up and be accounted for is the chairman .
Why is our budget probably the lowest in the division ; what is the medium term plan ; where has the money for Goode gone ; how committed are you ; what the hell is happening with the east stand .
Whether the manager is jB or not , those questions have to be answered otherwise any manager will have the same issues

Why is our budget probably the lowest in the division one of the lowest...£1.9m if rumours are correct; what is the medium term plan  erm, there isn't one ; where has the money for Goode gone  good old "running costs" ; how committed are you  to what? the land deal? Pretty commited....to the club? You decide! ; what the hell is happening with the east stand  in the short term...nothing .
Whether the manager is jB or not , those questions have to be answered otherwise any manager will have the same issues

yep , we know the answers although i would dispute that budget figure .
The point is , it is the board of directors and not the manager that need to stand up and be accounted for because they are getting away lightly with inertia .
No manager could have realistically done any better with the quality of players we have and the budgets in place .
There is no plan .

Returning to JFH his win % in his first spell at Burton was 61.1% and so far since his return is 56.5%
With us it was 23.8% and before that with QPR was 27.7%. Chalk & cheese.
