You don't need my praise, but you have always had my respect tH as an intelligent and reasonable person, on here and in real life.
Perhaps anotner question could be: what's wrong ?
No manager is perfect. Every player will perform better for one manager over another. Some players develop, learn and improve to a point to where they then become an asset.
The issue for me is Gannon and his scouts find a hidden rough gem, bring them through the ranks and next thing they are gone.
I keep seeing Montrose as the player who is missed the most and at this level, one or two players make a huge difference in a small squad. Add to that injuries and County are on the back foot.
I coached for several years and like to observe coaching styles. IMHO there are those who believe Gannon is a bully and those who believe he is a great coach. Personally, I believe he is probably too good for the job at this level. But he cares, he comes back after being sh1t on time and time again by cock womble owners.
When any boss or manager sees an employee or player underperform, they set about giving them a bollocking. Most footballers are not the brightest of sparks, and bless them if you wrap them in cotton wool, put gloves and under armour on them and ask them nicely to pass the ball, they will still f@ck it up, especially at this level.
There will be players in every single club at every level who do not get on with the manager. They either do what is needed or get transferred. Worse still, if too many underperform then the manager usually goes.
It's not rocket science, it repeats itself frequently. It will keep happening.
I'm not a personal friend of Gannon, but on the night he was laid off when County went into admin, he and all the staff were dejected, upset but totally professional. I along with a few other posters on here had a drink with everyone and showed our respect.
I don't have all the answers but I sincerely hope Gannon gets County promoted.
If new owners or investors come in, they might have their own choice of manager but for me, the stability has to be all the way through the club, right to the core. Hopefully the stability continues and helps the club improve to FT soon.
