Marcus Evans 14:00 - Jan 18 with 1582 viewsBoxerBlue

At the beginning of the month I couldn’t stand the bloke and was absolutely furious about what was happening to our great club with him in charge and couldn’t honestly see any way forward other than for him to go/sell

Fast forward a few weeks and he is SLOWLY winning me over with the transfers ie Collins Judge Quaner Keane the news coming out of
the club all very positive uniting the club etc

Still a long way too go but here’s hoping for more of the same

COYB!

Hi Rommy, how's tricks?

Please note: prior to hitting the post button, I've double checked for anything that could be construed as "Anti Semitic" and to the best of my knowledge it isn't. Anything deemed to be of a Xenophobic nature is therefore purely accidental or down to your own misconstruing.

10 years of incompetence and stupid decision after stupid decision but the bloke bankrolls Colin Quaner and all is forgiven. No thanks Jeff.

Wait until he does another 'interview' right after we've been relegated.

It's because Evans has never been the one to blame.

He provides his trust in his managers.

He gave the fans what they wanted. Trusted that man and it went tits up.

Now we have a competent manager

Evans is not slowly winning me over. Far too many bridges need repairing, the biggest one being January 2015. At best I am feeling a wee bit less angry at him.

I could get behind that. How about we try being fooking good off the back of smart decisions and increased funding for a while.

Yep, it's in now way down to Evans that a new manager was able to dismantle a half-decent Championship squad and effectively relegate the club before the start of the season.

"It's because Evans has never been the one to blame."

I will give you three massive fk ups which he very much is to blame for

* January 2015 - Need bodies to sustain our challenge on automatic promotion; this didn't come to the degree we needed

* Hired 3 utter morons - Keane, Jewel and Hurst

* Hiring bumbling business men to advise and run the business, but no one to advise him about football, except 'arry, or a departing manager to suggest a replacement.

Evans is pointing in an upward trend now, I grant you that - but to say he is blameless or never the one to blame is utterly naive and blind.

A few transfers over the holiday period have won you over but the previous 100m he spent didn't?

He's made mistakes but some of the vitriol on here was way over the top.

Rightfully your opionion.

I can see why he went for those 3 managers. Not that I agree but I can understand why.

At the time Keane was hot property after taking Sunderland up and Evans backed him financially

Jewell had experience and in fairness signed some good players but didn't work out.

Hurst was pretty much 99% of this boards vote for manager so can't really see how Evans can be blamed

New contract extensions were handed out during that 2015 seasons. That's investment. Mick also did bring in some players. There's a limit to all investment as we've seen. Doesn't mean he doesn't it's just there is a limit. Hence for me of that limit is reached then the fault isn't his to take.

The only gripe I agree with is he football running side. But when you have someone like a Mick involved and heavily involved maybe he didn't want interference, something Mick kept saying about the positives of just being left alone.

Evans also spoke with various managers regarding managerial replacements. Including Mick himself.

That's my view. But I appreciate yours.

Hopefully now regardless of how weve seen it before, everything can be seen as positive going forwards.

Depends where the facts are

Mentioning 3 managerial failures and pushing the blame on the owner rather than failings of the managers themselves...

It's not factual. They didn't work out. But they didn't go sour because of Evans they went sour because of themselves

As a CEO/Owner, Your business is only as strong as the people you hire.

It is factual that Evans made the hiring decisions, and those hiring decisions were flawed.

Keane's promotion wasn't exactly covered in glory at the time, a very very very very long list of transfers, a number of them were questionable - so he brute forced it.

https://www.telegraph.co.uk/sport/football/teams/ipswich-town/5207753/Roy-Keane-

Jewel had been out of the management game for so so long, and his last season in the game before us was an utter balls up of epic proportions

https://www.theguardian.com/football/2008/dec/16/paul-jewell-derby-county

Hurst, one might be able to be a bit more forgiving about, though Evans gave him far too free reign of the club and had no one vetting his transfers, except maybe Mr Magoo.
