Gone again

Probably the right thing for him to do, he was way out of his depth, but by resigning has saved the club a ride some. Respect to him for that.

Resignation of Darren Ferguson

Post by PoshCynic »

I am surprised that nobody has commented on the departure of Mr. Ferguson.

I think he has made a wise but brave decision and I have more respect for him now that he has realized that he might not possess the ability to manage at Championship level. I wish him well and hope he will find another position elsewhere at League 1 or 2 level.

A poor, sad decision accepted by the Club AT THE WRONG TIME. I say now, the players have let him down totally. Much to sort out.

Agree with this 100%, a few rats in that changing namely Norburn & JC-H and I won’t be cheering for either them at Fulham on Wednesday.

No manager could keep that squad in the Championship and the loans in Jan made the squad worse not better. I’m struggling to think of worse striker we’ve had than Morton.

Promoted 3 times from League One which is what we’re going to need next season.

Why did they accept his resignation?
They could have said "No. We want you to stay until the end of the season."
Now, they'll have to say it to McCann or someone else.

Just because you have me on ignore, you can’t see that someone posted 4 minutes before you

It's a shame but it was inevitable. I think that Fergie could do well at this level, with a decent squad of players.

I've never been his biggest fan, despite back to back promotions and our recent climb from L1. Whether Ashman agrees with it or not, (probably not), I consider that those promotions have been on the back of having a vastly superior squad and more money available as opposed to other teams in that league at that time.

IMO, he's out of his depth with an average squad but, more importantly, he's been given a bunch of players by our owners who are nowhere near good enough at this level. The board have an awful lot of questions to ask themselves about how they planned for this season. I get sick and tired of saying it, but "we are a decent League 1 side". Let's just face reality, accept the obvious and hope that our owners recognise that too.

I'll be at the Cottage too on Wednesday. Please give us something to be proud of.

What are the odds on McCann coming back?

Grant McCann took 6 points from 60 & in doing so took Hull from 8th to 24th and relegation. Don't forget he was also the manager of the only side we've beaten away from home all season.

He signings included Joe Gormley, Jerome Binnom-Williams, Alex Penney, Michael Doughty, George Cooper, Omar Bogle, Ricky Miller, Hayden White, Junior Morias, Paul Taylor & Brad Inman! Although to be fair he also signed Gwion Edwards, Andrew Hughes & Jack Marriott

Probably because they had promised not to sack him.
DMac and Fergie will both regret the decision.

What individual in his/her right mind would want to come to manage us in our current situation? As things stand, we can't hit a barn door.

Dmac could promise the next person a massive salary, but, he can't deliver any new signings for the remaining 15 games or so. Would that new manager want a potential relegation on his CV?

It goes against all I've said about DF in the past, but I think he actually gave it his best based on what our owners provided him with this season.
