    it is virtually impossible to appoint the right manager unless you have a crystal ball.
    we are not attractive enough at the moment to appoint the perceived best.
    any manager that comes in now will probably split the fans.
    I haven’t got a clue.
    Garde I hadn’t heard of until last weekend.
    are we trying to get him purely because we signed some French players. if so that is wrong.
    we need a strong personality to run all the football side of things and with the current set up we have that isn’t going to happen.
    we will end up with an unproven yes man. I fear.
    personally because of the situation we are in I think Pearson is the best one to get us out of it.
    but is a guess and a hope nothing more.
    if the club take a long term view and are prepared to go down then Garde maybe better.
    I haven’t got a crystal ball.

    Would I like AVFC to go down? Tough question. Lerner and the idiotic board deserve it. Do the fans and club deserve it?
    Despite the money we’d lose we’d still eventually come back up. We’ll never catch up with the Sky 6 anyway. Hell, it might even be fun playing in the Chumpionship bext season because we’ve had few laughs in the Prem these last five years.
    I really think we’ve had it thisbyear finally. There is no way Pearson will come in and perform the same miracle twice.

    When we last got relegated we ended up slipping two divisions and it took us 6 (?) years to get back and it was easier then than now because as TGV rightly points out the money.

    I really fear for our club if we go down – which looks very likely.

      Hitchy mate – relegated 87? Promoted 88?

        Your right BWS – I had forgotten that and was thinking back further – apologies for an old man’s memory. Still concerned that if the club is as disfunctional as some think then we could be in real trouble following relegation

          This season reminds me of 87, not a bad squad but devoid of any confidence and the club being in total disarray, lacking any plan or direction.
          If it hadn’t had been for Graham Taylor I don’t think we’d bounced back at the first attempt then.
