I'm yet to see anyone not say anything negative on any forum about mcglynns tenure this time round tbh. There's a difference between that and calling for the guys head obviously but even on here I'd reckon there's more people who would be happy to see him gone. Iv always said mcglynn was never a quick fix, he will give us hard work and results once he is given the proper chance to do so, I.e a summer window, where he's not picking up the scraps no one else wants. You can't polish a turd no matter how good a manager you are. It's obvious Smith knew this seing as he chucked it at a time that kept his stock relatively high. It was wrong for us not to sign a rb in January etc but who was available, within budget and we were made aware of? There's more variables in signing a player than x signed for x team so we should have got him. As much as I defend mcglynn through these things I do agree he hasn't had the impact with consistency that most of us expected. It is hard when you have such an imbalanced squad to start with, then lose Vaughan, hendry, Armstrong etc as I said, paco made that point far better than I could though.
Agree with what both you and Paco have said re the situation McGlynn "inherited" but, hey....don't let your actual facts and rationale you both posted get in the way of a good MUMP by the usual suspects!!
