Did he do community work?

Did they take in to account last season’s results when sacking him or did it not matter?

How many points did Aldershot have when they sacked their manager?

I think Dowse has won more points than each of those club had won, combined, at the time when they sacked their managers. It’s hardly the same as here, is it?

(That’s ignoring community work - just the points he’s won for this club)

Not the same at all, they are looking to make changes and go forward

We're content to do the same thing on a weekly basis

It's as much about direction of travel as points won. Looking only at points won kept Limbrick in a job longer than it should have.

good points NP, but pointless, the sacking crew will just ignore anything written that is in support of Dowse, they just want the management team disposed of. I do hope their line managers, wherever they work, are just as understanding.

there are always going to be those that want the manager to stay, those that want him to go, and those who are undecided. This happens at any club.

the fact is that both our neighbours and Weymouth have done what they think is right and have sacked their manager, as both clubs believe that it will give them a better opportunity to get to where they want/think they should be. (Its probably the same with Gillingham, but any suggestions of us getting Evans if Dowse was to go are just wrong)

lets not forget though that our neighbours wanted to get rid of their current manager after his 1st 10 games, inc a defeat to a lower league opposition in the FA Cup.

what we all want, as supporters of this FC, is for the FC to succeed, and progress. I hope, as I like him as a person, that in the fullness of time that will be under Dowse. If the BoD decide (whenever) that he is not the man to take us to where they believe this FC should be, then I will wish Dowse the best for the future and support his replacement (as long as its not Evans).

There is not a 'sacking crew' on this forum. There are loyal supporters who want the FC to progress. They just have different opinions to others, which they are entitled to

As LAST SEASON DIDNT COUNT can anyone tell me how much progress we've made from the last season that did

When it was halted we had 55 pts from 38 games at 1.44 pts per game as a part time team

We now have 28 from 22 at 1.27 and we are full time

Negative progress...

I invite FMITK to put a positive spin on these FACTS

Crucial time for them so a change was certainly required as they have to get some points on the board very quickly. Be interesting to see who they draft in as a replacement what's Garry Hill up to???

The season ends in April/May so how could he have got Ebbsfleet relegated when he left in the October?

Ebbsfleet had horrendous financial problems - players not paid etc - to suggest they were awash with cash when he was there at the end of his reign is again very wide of the mark.

Quite easy. He had 16 games, in which time they amassed 10 points. His successor had 23 games and won 32 points.

Out of those two managers, who do you think was responsible for them being relegated?

This is a really good attempt to re-write history. Garry was outbidding us for players and then they turned to shit. The relegation was his fault.

Outbidding players is a good point, actually. Josh Payne, Alex Reid, Adam Mekki were all players that both Dowse and Garry went for - and we picked up Goddard the season after.

So he got them relegated despite leaving in October?
Does that mean his rag tag bunch that knocked us out of the Cup was also down to him?

That Tuesday night replay was the worst game of Dowse's tenure. I include Sutton in that.

In his first season there he did have money. But over the summer, the club went into meltdown - didn’t pay its players - players went on strike, and Garry left in Oct, and the season ends in May (2/3rds left)

As worrying as it is he's not going to come out and say we have no hope. But I think he actually belives that and that it is just a 'Small minority online'. Aim is now top 10 (optimistic) I wonder what happens if that targets not hit ..... dowse running extra laps of the pitch?
