"Jim needs to be careful though. He has aligned himself to the Board and whilst some will understand why he has his detractors will argue that by doing so he is part of the problem"
TBF it is not just his detractors who are arguing this.
I love Jim, admire him in so many ways, and don't want anyone else to manage County in the foreseeable future, but he is part of the problem, and he has created a massive personal risk by adopting the positions he has;
We do need Full Time Management, Coaches and Players We do need a Training Ground We do need to pay competitive salaries
To deny, or even mitigate against the above is either stupid (which he's not) or cowardly.
What's that? 'Pragmatic!' There's no pragmatism to be found in relegation from this League.
