Sacking Malky is NOT the answer, for now...

Sacking Malky is NOT the answer, for now...

LET me make clear two things first and foremost. I am NOT actively supporting Malky`s reign/I`m NOT saying I want him to stay and I did not go to tonight`s game due to work commitments, however I was at the last two home games.

This is just me outlining exactly why sacking Malky will be completely the wrong decision (for now).

The situation is this -

1. We have 7 games to go (PNE, WBA, Reading, QPR, Leicester, Coventry and a massive, massive one against Plymouth)
2. We are one point above Palace.
3. We are five points above Plymouth.
4. We are thirteen points above a surely already down Peterborough.

In my opinion, sacking Malky with seven games to go is NOT the answer, for the following reasons -

1. Who do we get in?
2. Who`s gonna want in?!
3. The new manager has seven games and just over a month to get to grips with his new squad and somehow change something to keep us up.
4. Changing anything fundamentally at this stage will take a few games minimum for the players to get used to.
5. We don`t have a few games to experiment, we need results instantly.

So what`s the solution? -

1. Get behind the players. Unite behind the team instead of starting in-house brawls and arguments.
2. Cross every finger and every toe and hope against hope that they scrape some confidence and results from somewhere.
3. Get behind Malky until the end of the season and then make a decision re. his future, possibly once a new chairman is appointed permanently.

N.B. The fact it would cost to get in a new man and sack Malky is irrelevant, if it is in the best interest of the club then I`m afraid it has to be done.

I`d be interested to hear your views, everyone`s being very vocal on the forums so unleash that Raging (especially after tonight) Horn inside you and let VitalWatford know what you think!

I agree with everything said! Sacking Malky is not the answer. We need to hope and pray we survive this season and then look ahead to next year. The fact is though that clubs who change managers like ppl change there underwear dont get anywhere in the long run. We need stability, so I say stick with Malky through the rough and let him bring the good times, he has the passion for the club!!!

Yeah, at the end of the day Malky can only do so much, if they aren't playing well, they aren't playing well, end of.

Totally agree in relation to MM, but i think there has to be a change with Dyche, He was an average defender who used to bark at players and scare them, I remember Vega close on crapping himself when we played Millwall. Has he the tactical nouse? i don't what his coaching skills are like, but surley some one with experience and more tactics would help the club,

I think Dyche is only there as a buddy of Malky's, the most coaching experience he's got is our stiffs when Boothroyd was here.

Andy-how can you criticise Dyche like this? MM picks HIM & the team. I cannot judge how good Kerslake or Dyche are and cannot see how you possibly can.
