    Third time's a charm.

    If it dosen't work out for Nathan Jones at Southampton in eighteen months and we're rudderless at the time, we may be in line for act three: A thrilling installment of rip-roaring tactics, sincere prayers to the Good Lord, game-changers, chest-beating and badge-kissing. You read it here first.

                This should never happen again, itís time to find another good manager, someone who is more loyal. After this desertion, Nathan will find it hard to get a high profile job, mark my words he will flop at the saints, he is not tactically aware enough, remember when he got all that money to spend at Stoke he spent 9 million on Vokes. The Saints fans donít want him and unless he starts exceptionally well they will be baying for his blood in no time at all.

                    Yeah, he was so tactically unaware that he got us within one game from the Premier League.

                    To be fair he gave us nearly six years (yes yes, Stoke etc) which is a long time in football management and did a splendid job. We all move on.

                      I suspect you will have more luck finding a unicorn.


                      It's just the nature of the beast, any perceived success at Luton (and most other clubs) gets rewarded by managers, staff and players moving on.

                        Don't forget how Newell went from being one of the most-respected young managers to being pretty much unemployable.

                        That was mostly down to his raging alcoholism but a Manager's stock can change pretty quickly.

                          That's no accurate. He was already an enormous pisshead before he came to us.

                          I bumped into a pools fan in a hotel bar in Cwmbran shortly after he joined and he told me that there were untold stories of him being completely shedded more or less all the time.

                            Yep when we played them they sang 'you're just a Scouse alcoholic.'

                            But he was being with a lot of jobs when doing with us and his drinking must have been well known.

                            Actually I think it was after the bungs quotes from him when clubs went right off him.

                              Yep, the divs remember the Amy Rayner stuff but he said that to make sure people paid attention to what he said next. Which the divs didn't but all the football family did and he'll never get another proper job again.

                            True but that works both ways too. Managers can also gain a great reputation too in a relatively short time.

                            Using NJ again as an example when he returned do many people were sceptical, a few weeks later he was flavour of the month!

                              That was still almost a miracle I reckon.

                              The stats I think were lost 23 from 37 pre lockdowm and then when he came back lost 1 from 9.

                              And with that in mind I really can't blame any manager for taking opportunities and bumper payrises as and when they come along. Anyone who believes in the badge kissing loyalty of players or managers is an idiot. The only people loyal to a football club are its supporters.

                                  In what way have the supporters NOT been treated with respect?

                                  Pray tell, what exactly are/were your expectations from the club and manager?

                                  How long a tenure should a manager be in post till?

                                    2020 have built this club on attracting young, hungry talent and then not standing in their way when it is time to go. Provided of course that the next club taking them can afford them.

                                    We accept that for players so why not managers or coaches?

                                    Here's a spoiler for you. Our next manager will leave. Either we'll fire him because he isn't good enough or he'll be offered a better paying more prestigious job if he is successful.

                                    I'd rather the latter. Feeling a bit peeved because someone has got a better paying job is a lot less painful than being relegated by an incompetent manager.
