I don't believe that we have any choice..? trust needs to be earned but he will be given a fair chance and he is on a par with most of his peers in League 1.

As the saying goes "no-one complains about the smell of their own farts"... the excuses all disappear... no more opportunity to blame the legacy of the previous regime(s)... he will get to assemble HIS group of players and get them to play play how HE wants them to.. for him the toughest part is only just beginning.

He always has the "dodgy pitch"excuse to fall back on, if need be.

I think he won a few friends when in his first game he changed the formation as it was patently not working.

I think that JG would be able to get away with more than Barker just because he has some charisma. So long as we stay up without losing too much brown stuff, he'll be fine. More of the same really please. 14th will do.

What is better (taking out the possibility of some excitement due to a cup run) a middling season in League 1 without too much excitement and not scoring alot of goals (as in this season) OR suffering a relegation and then having a season battling near or at the top of league 2.
You see it so many times that a team struggles away for a season or two with the lessening of gates then get relegated (smaller teams I am thinking) and success and interest boost things up again.
Just a question thats all!

You can still finish mid table and see plenty of excitement and goals. I suspect it's just that the Broadfield experience last season witnessed one of the lowest amount of goals totals in league 1 over the 23 matches. Hopefully JG can correct this without pushing us towards your second option

I would prefer option 1. I realise that may not be to everyone's taste. Not every season can be crammed with excitement. I think we had sufficient to last us for a good few years with Conference then L2 promotion along with some FA Cup matches that still sometimes have me wondering when I'm going to wake up. two or three seasons drawing breath sounds OK to me Smile .

Some interesting comments reported by the Observer.

http://www.crawleyobserver.co......-1-6046603

I was specially taken by the comment that we waste a guilt edged chance and everyone trots back with not a word said.
Quote:
today where we should have scored and we didn’t.
“We just run back to the halfway line and nobody says anything. Little things like that will need to be better.

I can't say I noticed, but it's spot on. Maybe we have lost that confrontational edge we had when Evans was around just to keep everyone on their toes and at 100 percent.

(Maybe I should have opened a whole new subject, 'Was the team to nice') Laughing

Mind you, I suppose it's better than this:

The "trot back" bit seems to refer to a conceded goal.

No it doesn't. Why would conceding a goal be referred to as us missing a gilt-edged chance?

Maybe Gregory will ditch the zonal marking at set pieces and get players to take responsibility - then if someone makes a mistake they can all have a punch-up! In the old days, they knew a total b*llcking awaited them in the dressing room from Evans! Maybe JG needs to have a few coaching lessons in the black arts of management from the Fat Boy! Didn't do Charlie Wassmer any good though - destroyed him I'm afraid!

My experience is that when someone in charge has said you're too nice to each other, they then can't cope when you're not!
