If Adkins hasn’t gone by midday today then we might as well save the money, petrol and effort and give Fleetwood the 3 points now.
Thomas should have acted weeks ago as the writing was on the wall then. I appreciate he didn’t want to lose face but he’ll lose an awful lot more if he doesn’t act now.
We’re already 4 points from safety and you can kiss even a play-off spot goodbye.
How did it come to this? An excellent question, I’m glad you asked!
Firstly, as I’ve said before I think Roddy has had large part to play. My opinion is that he made Bowyer feel unwelcome and then when he left suddenly got in Adkins with almost indecent haste. He came from nowhere and was on no one’s radar other than Ged’s.
Thomas said they’d been preparing for that scenario for some time. Why? Bowyer was settled and whilst results took a severe dip when injuries struck he was doing ok.
I acknowledge that towards the end of his tenure as manager things weren’t going well but against a backdrop of Roddy potentially making him feel unwanted maybe that’s not surprising. After all he stuck through all the rubbish and finally was entitled to some decent support.
Let’s make no mistake we wouldn’t be at bottom if he were still here.
Ged’s involvement extends to the transfer policy too of course. Even in the worst of times Gallen produced miracles in the transfer windows. Can’t recall him ever needing a “ black box “ when he did that.
In last week’s Q&A Roddy was banging on about the analytics. Did MK need this when they recruited Scott Twine or Troy Parrott? I doubt it! Twine got an outstanding hat-trick last night btw.
What about just trusting your judgement?
All that aside we still have a decent squad. Yet somehow Adkins has turned the best of players in to lost souls.
How is it that Famewo, Stockley, DJ, Kirk amongst many are now performing so badly?
Adkins has been chopping and changing for so long now. His post-match ramblings are laughable. After his 23rd change in 4 games he actually referred to aiming for a settled side!
I note no one even bothered to ask where DJ was last night! Remember, Adkins has nothing against the lad, it’s just squad rotation.
Talking of squad rotation given Nige has used it so extensively, how come a lot of our boys are looking so unfit and unable to last the 90?
After each game we got told about the lengthy debriefs. A fat lot of good that’s done. Adkins just isn’t getting his message across not that anyone, least of all our Nige, seems to know what that is!
Nigel simply has to go and Thomas, if he isn’t getting shod of Roddy too, shouldn’t listen to him for advice in any replacement.
Some folk are saying that Johnnie Jackson is too tied in with the current approach to games and shouldn’t be considered for the job. However, as I’ve said for some time, we don’t hear anything from at the moment.
He’s certainly not the animated figure we’ve seen in the technical area in previous seasons. Is he being forced to keep schtum!
I think the players would play for Jackson especially with Euell as his number two. Certainly the fans would be 100% behind him.
It’s got to be that or Thomas goes for someone like Wilder because he’s going to need them. A lot of fans think he wouldn’t come to us but if we don’t try we won’t know.
If we are to have any hope then at a minimum Adkins needs to go now. We simply can’t afford another minute of him I’m afraid.
