I get all this.

When it's going good, it's fucking ace. Us against the world.

When it turns shit it takes ages to put it right.

We've had big dips under him before, trouble is this one has come at the worst time possible :(

Come on Gonzo, turn that avatar upside down. We're still in it. Next instalment is Monday. Three points, a good win, and a good performance,with four homes in April. It's still on Gonz.

This might be unfair, but I feel like at some stage Evatt loaded so much pressure onto himself - his Pep comparisons, Barrow/Bolton-lona, managing in the Premier League in five years - that us struggling is more about him saving face than motivating the team. It's like late period Mourinho, everything is against us, everything is someone else's fault, the players are scared, the fans are cunts. If everyone would just respect his genius and get out of the way we'd be fine.

I'm still broadly behind him, to the point I'd give him another crack at it even if he fails this year. But all managers have a shelf life, and a character like Evatt, when the wheels come off things will really turn sour. I feel like this is his chance with us.

What would be any different with Evatt in charge next season in league 1 though? I'm still broadly behind him, but his biggest weakness is being adaptable so I reckon we'd have another season just like this, i.e. not quite good enough.

If he doesn't get us up definitely best for both parties that he moves on. He's showing signs of strain and needs a fresh start as well as the fan base.

If he does get us up, it's a different story, as it would most likely boost him and us. But to get us up, he really needs to start being more positive and getting the players up for it. The late Mourinho comparisons are spot on and he needs to snap out of it. He's sapping energy from the fans and team

That last sentence is so true.

No fun atm, every game is an ordeal.

Managers should be inspirational.

Even the 5-0 ?

Every game is different. The shit is shit but it’s not every game.

I still think there's something there with him, and I could be totally wrong about his attitude as far as it transmits to the players. And to be fair, this would be his first failure after three good seasons.

I wouldn't have a huge amount of confidence in him. But I think he's shown enough to deserve the chance to prove beyond all doubt that he's not the man for the job.

I think one way or another we will go up this season 

We best fucking had 

If not, gets one more chance for me

Though I just can't see Sharon sacking him and he's under contract till 2026 

So two more chances

Disappointed as I was at Stevenage had a good day out. 

For the booers and the tosser giving the players the bird at the end get a grip, it's the trenches time now and that doesn't help. God forbid we're not 3 up after 20 minutes tomorrow or you'll be at it again. 

If we're there on a Friday night next month I'd swerve the 99p Parts and Labour pale ale in Spoons. It's cheap for a reason.

Let’s just see how the season ends, add it all up and make a judgement then. Hopefully one way or the other we’ll be in the Championship and everything will look different? 😁

Does that mean you won’t be making any judgements in the meantime?
