Please, please let that happen. We'd finish above them whilst hopefully offloading crap like Chappell onto them!

I remember Eastleigh made an approach for Burr in January but we rejected them. A few months later and we were paying to let him go rather than the reverse!

Genuinley think it might be Burr but by the sounds of it they might be after someone with FL experience.

It would be the perfect job for Burr - unlimited budget and no transfer window anymore! We ended up with crap like Chappell because he didn't know how to find a bargain.

Somehow even now Burr has gone we still find ourselves with crap like Chappell. I don't think we are a relegation standard team, but we just need to approach games in the right way, going 3-0 down will never get results. If we get the first goal in a game, i can see us being alright. I think JM only has a year deal to test the water, there will be a placement objective in mind at the club that he has to acheive.

Wouldn't be at all surprised to see them get playoffs, or even go up. Top manager at this level and the level above in my opinion, and dare i say someone we could have had with bags of expereince.

Begs the question did he apply for the Job or did they approach him, there was no chance of him becoming Chester manager because he didn't apply, perhaps the bigger buget with more cash to splash was the missing incentive

Agreed i would love to know if he applied or was approached. There is no reason why a club shouldn't approach a manager in my opinion anyway. This is modern day football, clubs often approach managers in teh same way they approach players.

At some levels of football, making an approach may be a good idea, where silly money and long term contracts are the norm.

Foe me though, making such an approach means that they are in the box seat when it comes to salary, contract length and conditions, with agents laughing all the way to the bank.

Understand your point of view, I just doubt Moore would have declined the wage that Burr was on.

Instead we took a massive gamble on an unproven, inexperienced manager with an inexperienced assistant. The jury is very much still out on that decision but the early signs aren't great. What our club desperately needed was experience, both on and off the field. It seems to have recruited well off the field now - even if it took far too long to reach that stage. On the field we are a team of kids with a manager who thinks all the answers lie on a DVD.

Agree with most, bar the end part. Kids aren't always such a bad thing and there is a blend of players with conference experience. It's just the strikers that are kids to be fair, if you look across the team as a whole.

Also, to defend JM, who i am still unsure of myself, i think he is terrible when it comes to interviews, which makes him sound a lot worse than he is. I do believe he works hard with his research, but it's just not turned into results so far this season, early days.

Disagree
The early signs were fantastic, with 3 wins out of 4 to keep us in this league.

This season we have played a handful of games against some decent teams, I don't think JM knows his best 11 yet, which is hardly surprising after such a short period.
I honestly believe we will be mid table after ten games, which is where I think we will finish.

Agree. The gamble would have been to break the bank bringing in Ronnie Moore, who hasn't managed in this division for nearly 20 years, got in trouble for betting a few years ago, and seemingly didn't even apply for the job.

Macca deserved, and still deserves, a fair crack of the whip.

Agreed, at that time we could not afford an expensive manager,having had to pay up the remainder of Steve Burrs contract, I know for a fact that Jon McCarthy was the most impressive interviewee of all the applicants.
He very much wears his heart on his sleeve, and that comes through whenever I have spoken to him, we are only a handful of games into the season, talking about replacing him is really ridiculous and not fair, we have had some tough opening games to contend with, the Dagenham game shows that we can get it right, we knew this was going to be a tough season before we even kicked off.
Jon has spoken to the Senior Blues on a number of occasions and never fails to impress with his undoubted passion for the club, but most of all his honesty. He is an excellent speaker, just after a game is NOT the best time to ask any manager for comments especially if your team has just been beaten.

Instead we took a massive gamble on an unproven, inexperienced manager with an inexperienced assistant. The jury is very much still out on that decision but the early signs aren't great. What our club desperately needed was experience, both on and off the field. It seems to have recruited well off the field now - even if it took far too long to reach that stage. On the field we are a team of kids with a manager who thinks all the answers lie on a DVD.

Disagree
The early signs were fantastic, with 3 wins out of 4 to keep us in this league.

This season we have played a handful of games against some decent teams, I don't think JM knows his best 11 yet, which is hardly surprising after such a short period.
I honestly believe we will be mid table after ten games, which is where I think we will finish.


Agree. The gamble would have been to break the bank bringing in Ronnie Moore, who hasn't managed in this division for nearly 20 years, got in trouble for betting a few years ago, and seemingly didn't even apply for the job.

Macca deserved, and still deserves, a fair crack of the whip.

Agreed, at that time we could not afford an expensive manager,having had to pay up the remainder of Steve Burrs contract, I know for a fact that Jon McCarthy was the most impressive interviewee of all the applicants.
He very much wears his heart on his sleeve, and that comes through whenever I have spoken to him, we are only a handful of games into the season, talking about replacing him is really ridiculous and not fair, we have had some tough opening games to contend with, the Dagenham game shows that we can get it right, we knew this was going to be a tough season before we even kicked off.
Jon has spoken to the Senior Blues on a number of occasions and never fails to impress with his undoubted passion for the club, but most of all his honesty. He is an excellent speaker, just after a game is NOT the best time to ask any manager for comments especially if your team has just been beaten.

How to be popular with a selection of the Chester fans....hop along to the Senior Blues Meeting and tell them what they want to hear. Wasn't that Steve Burr's tactic as well? This is a results business and in the end any manager is judged by results and performances on the pitch. Ridiculous to call for his head at this stage but if things don't improve rapidly then by October/November time then serious questions must be asked. He looks completely out of his depth at the moment as a football manager. I guess as long as he keeps coming along to the meetings and 'performing' he'll have your support though......

ronnie moore is their new manager


Wouldn't be at all surprised to see them get playoffs, or even go up. Top manager at this level and the level above in my opinion, and dare i say someone we could have had with bags of expereince.

Begs the question did he apply for the Job or did they approach him, there was no chance of him becoming Chester manager because he didn't apply, perhaps the bigger buget with more cash to splash was the missing incentive


Agreed i would love to know if he applied or was approached. There is no reason why a club shouldn't approach a manager in my opinion anyway. This is modern day football, clubs often approach managers in teh same way they approach players.


At some levels of football, making an approach may be a good idea, where silly money and long term contracts are the norm.

Foe me though, making such an approach means that they are in the box seat when it comes to salary, contract length and conditions, with agents laughing all the way to the bank.

There was some dimwit in the crowd yesterday who kept on shouting out the same "witty" abuse about DVDs. Please tell me it wasn't you.

No it wasn't me but it does show how embarassing our manager sounds. Just reading his comments about the magnificent performance yesterday.

That's good to know. But seriously, what do you expect/want? we got a 1-1 draw against a team which will probably be around the play-offs. I don't recall us getting battered after the shaky start, albeit I'd love to see us have a shot on goal before 80 minutes and was frustrated as everyone. There was definite progress - at Gateshead and Barrow we crumbled after going 1-0 down.
I very much doubt JM thinks all the answers lie in a DVD and in fairness there weren't a lot of other options for manager. Your (getting repetitive and why I wrongly assumed you might be the wag in the crowd yesterday) comments about the manager visits to the Exiles/Senior Blues are also a bit patronising - can't talk for everyone (and I'm not a Senior Blue) but those two groups are conservative (with a small c) - give the manager a fair chance, get behind him and the team and within reason don't become a sacking club. It goes deeper than just accepting SB/JM because they come across well at meetings.
