I think we should club together and present Tolson with a day saver so that he can get on the bus and f**k off out of here.

Bit harsh to have a go at Tolson. He did what he could with a clearly demoralised squad that had resigned itself to relegation and even said he couldn't promise anything when he took the job. I do believe that Lee would have done just enough to keep our heads above water but we will never know now.id Anyway all we are doing is delaying the inevitable, a win at home to Welling would be moderately annoying actually as I'd feel obliged to get down to Braintree to support the lads where I'd be extremely surprised to see us get a result.

But whilst we're still fighting I'll be behind them
in life Iv never gone for a job I'm not remotely qualified for

You would've if you knew you were guaranteed to get the job though Jim...

Starting next season in whatever league without a change in manager will see plenty of WAGS Dancing for joy because there's plenty seriously considering not bothering, and that's only in the small circle I socialise with..
I thought they were up in arms because you wouldn't be going to the football

I have a feeling that Neil Tolson was appointed because of his community hall links. It was a lazy and ultimately wrong decision and we have paid the price. I like Tolson, think he is a good guy, but looking at his record at Hyde United and his open admission that he is a coach not a manager means that I wouldn't have appointed him in a million years. The footballing decisions made by management and board this season have been ludicrous. From the summer signings of O'Keefe , Griffith etc to the ridiculous decision made by the board with ten games left. My concern now is that we'll start next year with Tolson in charge because we've dropped down to the North. The board at alty do plenty right but I feel the eye has been taken off the main focus, which at every football club should be the football team. This impending relegation was so avoidable.

A very fair and concise summing up. You have to ask if we'd advertised the position and a manager with Tolson's record has applied would he have been anywhere near being appointed?

You also touching on the summer signings. I lost confidence with the Griffith signing. Not because of what transpired but aside from the fact we were signing a player who'd only played twice in 2016 or whatever it was (and alarm bells really should have rung!) but we were signing a player who even his best references of his peak years said he could run but not pass to save his life. Now we signed him because he was available and he was our late signing but replacing Cavanagh we effectively changed our whole way of playing by removing our passing holding midfielder just because Griffith was available.

Was this planned? Was it always what we were looking for? It just struck me as odd and indicative that perhaps we weren't as clear headed as we needed to be at all.

Surely the reason Neil Tolson was appointed was that he was already on a contract and to let him go would have required paying him off. Lee Sinnott resigned so no pay off required.

Lee Sinnott and Neil Tolson weren't under contracts, as revealed by Lee Sinnott himself. There is no logical reason for giving him the job, though I wait for the Chairman to surprise us with one.
