Not a fan of Flynns, how much money has he wasted over time with loan and permanent signings he never played. The way he set up the team against Exeter was poor two inexprienced EFL players in the back four against a prolific scoring side. Every signing he makes he states he has followed their progress and how they will enhance the squad but seldom uses them, he's full of the stuff that grows the grass green in Texas. I personally think Mr Flynn is the problem and would be pleased if he was placed on gardening leave with Mr Hatswell and put Amond and Ellison in charge. Would like to see the academy be better supported, take a look at Exeter's current side, with a managerr who supports development not one who merely seeks to advance his own career trying to buy promotion. By the way how many of the current county squad would survive in League one?

We are still out performing pretty much everyone's expectations.

Considering the amount of time and effort that goes into berating the club from the boardroom to the blades of grass, there seems to be HIGH expectations despite the short comings of the club, of which we are consistently reminded of around here. Especially when we are performing better than some of you predicted.

Sack the manager while we a 5th? You people are laughable. Try and support the boys.

"we are still outperforming pretty much everyones expectations" are you for real?


Everyone's expectations for context if they couldn't be bothered to scan the thread.

http://weareexiles.net/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=50182

    15th - JonD

    12th - Special branch

    "Just above relegation" - pembsexiles

    "Dog fight to stay up" - flat4

    "Right now if I were offered 22nd I'd take it" - Stan A. Einstein

    Top-half - wattsville_boy

    Bottom-six - amberbhoy

    14th - DeePeeNCAFC


Think in the context of the league, we're outperforming everyone (bar wattsville's) expectations.



Quote me fully please. I gave my reasons, they being that we did not appear to be as good as the season before. I also added I didn't know how good the new signings would be.

Cooper and Twine were exceptional. And one of my criticisms, one of many, of the loan system, is that players loaned in the summer tend to get recalled if they are any good.

Without Twine and Cooper, judging our form since, I think my assessment was pretty spot on.

Interesting as I have heard of the Amond/ Ellison partnership elsewhere.
Cannot argue with any of this thread really.

I’d like to see one of them become an assistant head coach regardless, with their remit being coaching the vast army of seldom-scoring forwards we have, working in pairs etc.

Flynny will always be remembered and thanked for the great escape,it was brave to take on a job that looked doomed,fair play to him for taking it on and saving us.He did have some luck on the way,three 1-0 home wins in April,Joe Day with a tremendous save in injury time against Crawley,Zoko poking a shot into the side netting last kick against Yeovil,last kick free kick just over the bar against Acrington.If one of those had gone in then we would have gone down.Hartlepool helped by losing at home to Barnet,who had nothing to play for and they managed to lose at Orient who were practically down.If they had drawn those games then we were down.It then still took,that goal,by OB to save us.Flynny was very naive at Plymouth,trying to attack when we were already three down,he should have shut up shop at three nil,that would have cost us but for OB.My problem is that Flynny seems just as naive now,four years on with tactics.Go one up and sit back,throw four forwards on to get a goal.It worked in May 17 but,it doesn't very often but,he still does it.

If I ever get to the gates of heaven I hope Stan Einstein has not taken over St. Peter's role as ,with his forensic and extremely annoying eye I would be ' lucky ' to be admitted to league 1 . However, he is right about the reality of managers being sacked. I f we have any ambition Flynn should go. Yes he has done well but so did Addison and Beadle and they did well despite Beadle's foibles. We need to progress on and offvthe pitch and yes ' a decent playing surface is more important than a few pubs nearby.
Start playing Baker at right back and PF is better than LK so put him in position.

Excuse me? I know I can be sarcastic, sometimes caustic. I am perhaps not the easiest of people to rub along with. But I'd let you in if I was on the Pearly Gates. I give you I might give myself 10 seconds of pleasure making Percy and GSB sweat it before I'd give them the nod but I am not vindictive like that. :grin:

He didn't just save us from relegation though did he, just 2 years later he got us to the play off final as well as making a small fortune from cup runs.

Wow, what an honour to be considered in the same light as Kenny Dalglish. Seriously though Pembs this is one subject I never joke about.

Yes Jesus had a sense of humour, but I can't imagine him joking about his death on the cross and why it was necessary.

If you seriously think that I was making a joke about that, then you have a warped understanding of what I meant. No more discussion from me. Ends.
