    Championship Here We Come

    I have seen some criticism of Steve Gibson in my time, but to accuse him of having no guts is beyond the pale. One only has to look at some other clubs and see the Chairman's prediliction to fire a manager on the strength of a run of losses and see that it takes conviction and 'guts' to stick by a guy. Just remember, its his money after all, not some plc, and he who pays the piper calls the tune. Southgate doesn't need the sack, he needs experienced assistance and that is my criticism of Gibson.

    • I don't think anybody can really criticize Steve Gibson, the early Bryan Robson wonderful period proved that and what Steve did for the club. He's still the best chairman in the country by a long mile.
      But I have said before, as with Robson and now Southgate he can be over loyal and that can be disastrous.

    • agree that its not gibsons fault..but its the joe public that pays for a good show..so that fills gibsons pockets doesnt it. although steve gibson is a nice person. he now needs to show gs and other future managers that he will not accept failure. this wouldnt happen at say man u would it. steve if your looking for a manager,i can help. i dont have football experience though. if you cut corners in a job then things go wrong dont they,and thats whats happened here. inexperienced manager??? loads of losses.
