The Postbag

Social media killed the email star as the Buggles famously sang. However, we do still check the postbag and this week found a novel suggestion, perhaps an extension of the managerial graveyard theme of Thursday's diary.

Sack the manager, and the next one too

Dear Cod Almightys,

As I write, Paul Hurst is still in charge of our beloved Mariners, but things aren't looking good.

If the GTFC owners decide a change of leadership is necessary, I would like to register, at this early stage, my utter displeasure with the next manager - he is clearly not good enough at this level, his decision making and motivation is junk/trash, and his player recruitment is way below what I've been able to achieve on my computer. Also there's something about his personality or the way he speaks I don't like.

I want this new manager out, now, before we start sleepwalking into our next relegation dogfight window slamming shut. I will be sticking steadfastly to this opinion through thin and thick like the proper fan i am, because even if things start well, I know they'll go wrong eventually.

And at that point, I can smugly tell you all that I was right all along, and that he was never good enough, enjoying the fact that you've all now seen the light. Because that's what being a proper fan is all about.

Up the Mariners, but down with the next manager. And the owners. And the players, the podcasts, and anyone who claps or cheers anything, ever.
