It’s that the style of play just is not suitable for the English second division. Trying to play like Liverpool when the players don’t seem fit enough and there just isn't the pace in the squad is plainly ridiculous.

Tough start yes, but constant defeats against workmanlike (Charlton, Blackburn) and poor (Hull, Middlesbrough) sides as well as anyone half decent isn’t really acceptable. The home form is unforgivable and rampant Preston are next up.

The only question is whether the club can afford the removal of JG and his two sidekicks and then the hiring of his replacement.

Personally think he’ll be given until the November international break unless there are some very alarming scorelines (eg. Preston running riot in 2 weeks could be the final straw).

It’s not working. Seen nothing to suggest it is going to work

Give a new man time to turn the season round

Where's the "shake it all about" option?

I'm in the Out camp now, I like what he did last season and the positivity he brought to the fans but that is well and truly eroding away and I don't think he's going to find the way of playing to get us climbing up the league, I would sack him and get Hughton in if he wants the job, a proven, successfully Championship manager.

In but as I mentioned after Fulham he has to scrap the current style of play and start again and go back to basics, If this lot cant play a pressing game because they aren’t fit enough they can oxf*rd off.

Would he, or even can he?

I don’t even particularly care if we press if we decide to have a solid formation instead and play deeper. We do neither

With regret I've changed my opinion to out.

What I want to see is a manager who can work with the players he inherits (Coppell, Pardew & Brian did this). Is that too much to ask nowadays?!

I do wonder what on earth is going on in training. On Tuesday night I commented to my lad that I could not believe we had Swift marking Mitrovic from a corner. WTF is all that about?

The lovely man, wonderful persona bollocks has well gone , results speak for themselves . We are in total freefall and probably should get rid of him but I doub't if Jesus Christ could turn this shambles around.

If think we need to go down to rebuild and start all over again as the championship is proving far too tough for this bunch of prima donnas

Managerial surgery urgently needed. 1pt from a possible 18. Football is a simple game, why do we make it so technical and complicated?

He needs to go

I'm absolutely certain Gomes will be a good manager, but he needs to accept that the 3 men at at the back are making one big error per match too many.

I was Rodgers in, Adkins in, Stam in and I'm Gomes in.

FTR, I was McDermot out, Clarke out, and Clement out.

I stick by the this isn't good enough and you have five games conversation after Fulham.

Game 1 down. Break to rethink and adopt a different strategy.

Start off with a couple of defeats and it's good night. A draw or two in the next three and he might see out the remaining 4. A win and he could get up to another 9. But I just don't see any hope in him lasting long.

Sacking isn't quite there yet though.

Nice guy and wish him well for the future, but it's not working here. I'm not sure who the answer is - but I just can't see Gomes turning it around.

The thing is we have a fully fit squad, we know these are very fine players who are significantly better than league one quality.

Gomes has shown no sign he can turn things around.

Thanks for last season Jose but your times up.

Hughton in!

Fulham game turned me 180.....10 men or not......he has made too many mistakes and quite frankly looks a little bit lost and out of his depth judging by his interview. I don't think he can cut it at this level in English football. Sad, he is a likable guy.
Houghton for me.....its time we had someone who isn't new to English football and management and instead have someone with a proven track record in this country. Ainsworth as second choice.

gets my vote every time.

We are all hurting right now, but wasn’t this what we expected and posted about at the start of the season? It still is a club rebuild, and the season isn’t quite over yet....yet another manager aint going to be the magic panacea.

Still better football than what we have endured in previous seasons....fine margins an’ all that...results will come

Some of the players need to mtfu and earn their corn in front of goal. Today was a strong starting line-up that should've beaten any team in this league...... the end result was painfully poor but then again 0-1 away at Brizzul? many other teams would’ve taken that.


More time (and less goal shy strikers) needed

I think sacking the manager is both ineffective and not the sort of club I want us to be.

If we can get someone with a proven track record like Hughton or Hughes then that's one thing. But I suspect we'd just get another journeyman off the merry-go-round and be in the same position in 12 months. Stam was our chance to break the cycle but look what happened there.

Let's give someone a chance for once. Imagine if we'd sacked Coppell after that dreadful run in his second season?
