What a fucking club we are. It’s moments like this where you don’t realise how bad things can actually get. The Pressley years are up there as some of the absolute worst for me personally, but we have descended to levels that are completely unfathomable. Is it arrogance that is the root cause? Did the board, managers and players completely disrespect the standard required to win the league? Absolutely, but It’s also as many have said down to years of mismanagement at all levels of the club.
It’s clear that the culture of the club at present is completely incompatible with any sort of success playing football. Our next appointment is probably one of the important of our history. I have no idea who the right person is, but I’m concerned the overlords In charge don’t know either. I don’t really support the notion of blaming Holt - we were losing those games regardless of was taking over in the short term, or if M&M were staying on. The rot was already underway. I’ve never rated Holt highly regardless, but there was very few ways he could come out of this looking good and I’m sure he knew that. I do however agree that Holt comes across as a bit of a “yes-man “ and don’t really have confidence in him to be appointing our next manager.
