We need to go up this season if we are to keep  the likes of Politic and Darcy and grow as a team.....Next season the embargo is lifted and with that expectations will grow. I expect us to get promotion two seasons running and be back in the championship in two years time.

We will only get there if FV are bold and get this appointment right and back him for the following season.

The new manager will have a crop of good young players and the pick of players who are willing to drop to lge 2.

It is dangerous to expect this even though we all hope it happens.  We have had a losing mentality at the club for so long that we may need a season of stability.  What we need is a manager who can put in place a team with character, playing football and one the fans can believe in again. 

I agree with Benny, if it takes two attempts to get out of league two that would be fine if it sets a more solid foundation. I remember when we lost to Tranmere in the 1991 play off final and thinking we will never get out of the lower leagues. However, two years later and we went up under Rioch fully prepared to progress all the way to the Prem.

Hi Smithills gent 

Bolton fans going into BarrowWays to troll them is one of the most embarrassing things I've ever heard of. How small-time have we now become?

Given the current climate I think it would be fitting to give the job to Phil Brown he would be our first black manager 🖤

He would have been my first choice

And mine

Evatt has done well with a non league team.

Lowe has done well in a league we need to get out of straight away.

Evatt is a massive gamble when we least need one.

A disastrous season, and the trapdoor to something unthinkable could await

I expect promotion like I did when we went into L1 with PP this season. Difference being i grant that PP had a squad to walk it. But I still expect this is our best chance to regroup and build with all that’s going on. Can’t judge till the squad is put together but I’d be massively disappointed with anything less than promotion

every manager is a gamble. but surely gambling on a manager with a plan already honed at a similar level and who wants to play football is a better gamble then going for the same tired merry go round brigade, promoting Lee or Phillips or someone who used to play for us .so evatt or lowe for me

After listening to the podcast that @Marc505 posted a couple of days ago, Evatt all day for me, fresh start, fresh players, new beginnings, the start of something special 🤞

This ⬆️

Really? 2 promotions from 2 attempts by Lowe.

You can’t get better than that.

 

My issue with this is he basically got Bury promoted, left for Plymouth and won same division with the players he won it with for Bury.

Well, that was a fuck up. And apologies to all.

I got a message, immediately posted on here, then got another message 5 minutes later telling me not to say owt.

Anyway, hopefully it'll be announced officially in the next two days, and then I can say that I told you so. 😉

That's for fv to decide, not us. They're the ones employing him.

Has lowe even been considered/interviewed?

It's a bit of a crass comment just saying they've gone for the cheaper option, when none of us know the true events.

I would add, that either would be great, but whichever one is appointed, then we should get behind him, and remove any notion of someone on the cheap.

Is it just Barrow standing firm on the 250k?

Some things change. Some things stay the same. 

Typical Wanderers that.

FV screwed up here. They didn't pursue other managers because they would cost too much, but were misled by Evatt's agent that he would come cheap. Didn't realise that Barrow interpreted his contract differently and now hes gonna cost more than the likes of Lowe, Wellens etc. But they're too far into the process now to climb down.

Just hope £200k turns out to be money well spent!

We've all heard these & other unsubstantiated rumours. How do know these are facts or are you just choosing those that suit a pop at FV.

Did Barrow play good football last season and what side of the ground do you go

200k compo for a manager and it’s much of a muchness on who you get. 
 

Exactly the same as buying a player. All of a similar standard. No assurances that any of them are going to work or not. 
 

the Evatts, Lowe’s & Wellens etc have all been looked at by us all as more positive than the Powell’s & Adkins etc. So there’s no point in splitting hairs between them

i get the point about football league experience but you can counter that and say Evatt played across all levels of English football v’s Lowe. So whose knowledge is greater? Furthermore, considering how many conference sides then get promoted from L2 so soon after promotion in to it & the the tiny number of clubs who come back after relegation from L2, there’s not actually that much difference at all. 
 

id of taken any of them and will be happy with whichever one of them we get. 
 

judgement starts when the football does

If there’s anyone on this planet that would know Ian Evatts contract stipulations and release clauses it’s his fucking agent.
