There are a couple of rumours knocking about around Stam moving to Dutch clubs

Tbh, think that would be best all round. Would presumably save us a big severance fee, and I don't think we'd fight too hard to keep him

It should be set in stone that if he leaves to join one of those clubs he has to take Joey Van Den Berg with him.

I hope the snow doesn't stop him from getting over there today.

There’s been a lot of media wonkers at Arborfield this morning. Not seen them before. Somethings going on. Certainly not FBI or CIA. Praying Stam is leaving today. Save our club.

Why do we have to have the only owners in modern football who aren't trigger happy.

We have to wait for him to run down his contract and hope not too much damage is done.

The guy is honest and decent. I think we all like him personally and wish him the best whatever happens, and thank him for last season.

I was very anti-Stam when it seemed people were still on the fence but now that the tide of opinion can clearly see he's struggling here and the owners know it so there's no point shouting about it and I'd welcome him staying till the first few games of the season and see what happens as no point getting rid of him now.

My only concern is in case he not bothered about this place anymore, has he given up and is he just eyeing up other clubs, and is this clear to the players...

He'll be here until the end of the season now I reckon. He seems to have survived the utter clusterfukk that was the Sheffield game and if the owners were ever going to act it should have been directly after that game. The fact that they didn't and remained completely silent leads me due deduce that they're going to let this season play out whatever the consequences and deal with it in the summer. What form that might take heaven only knows as all options are still open. Personally I think we'll be relegated as I can't see where we're going to get many, if any points until the end of the season.

Then again I may be wrong and he could be gone today...... :|

Best case scenario and we some how stay up, What then?
Stan leaves by mutual consent and we get a new manager in realistically how much of an overhaul will there need to be in order to stop the same thing happening next season. I'm assuming there won't be loads of cash and I can't see many of the players we would want to see go getting us much money coming in. Do we then sell our couple of prize assets just to generate the money needed for the changes.
Will a new manager be able to make us a mid table team with what we already have? And if so is that what we would be happy with? I'd grab it now but when it happens that must be the most frustrating thing for a team in the championship to win one lose one and realise by January your season is over.
It's hard to see the perfect future happening with very little money and no obvious manager to take us forward and it seems to me that sooner or later without some sort of intervention relegation will happen.

This is how I see it. I would guess that to sack him is going to mean a hefty pay off, which the owners want to avoid. So I think the plan is to let it all happen, and if we stay up it's a bonus. And if we don't, I'm not all that sure they're bothered which tier we play at.

It's also clear Stam isn't happy, and his recent remarks in post match interviews regarding whether or not he'll be sacked indicate that he's accepted that it will happen at some point. I would think he's relatively content in the knowledge that he's not hard up anyway, and sacking will mean lump sum.

So rather than sacking him and having to pay for it, I wonder if the board/owners are hoping that he'll find his position unworkable, and will have had enough soon to the point that he'll quit, and cost them nothing.

I'm sure a new face could motivate these players.
I know they look shocking now, but many of these guys have played top flight football.
Stam is clearly the problem. Poor tactics isolate players and force them into mistakes. This affects confidence, Jaaps-eye can't motivate them to recover the lost confidence and on it goes.
The sooner he's gone the better.
