    We shall see over the next few weeks how good Barrow is, If he turns it round ill be the first to eat humble pie but I wont be holding my breath. He should have gone when Bobby did then just maybe we wouldn’t be searching for a sixth manager since RM left.

    Under Martinez Barrow was in charge of the Development Squad. Jones was Martinez’s Assistant Manager and Dennis Lawrence was First Team Coach.

    So essentially, Barrow had f-all to do with the first team’s tactics.

    And I suspect he’s had little to do with any of the recruitment, team selection or tactics since.

    As someone said earlier, Martinez, Coyle, Rosler, Mackay, Caldwell and Joyce have all had contradicting styles, so if it was Barrow pulling the strings, it would mean he’s been changing his mind completely on tactics every time a new manager comes in!

    From what I gather, he’s been kept on by previous managers because his knowledge of the game and his contacts have been priceless, and he’s popular with the players. I wouldn’t think for a second that he’s been used as a tactical guru!

    In fact, from comments in his press conference before the Birmingham game (when he was saying he might be considered old school by some people, but some things never change), it suggested to me that his advice has been ignored if anything.

    So your saying the board have put a fella in charge of first team affairs AGAIN because he knows people and is liked? More likely is he has got the job because he is second in line as in assistant manager. I’m sure the fans would be thrilled to know he is in charge and not a tactical guru as you say.

    I think that’s pretty much the long and short of it unfortunately!

    All those moaning that we should play 442, press more, be more direct, and play with wingers are the same ones who have been having tantrums on Twitter about Barrow getting the job, when in reality, they’re more likely to see that under Barrow than any other manager we’ve had in recent years.

    He’s been a manager at numerous clubs, and knows the squad inside out, but he’s admitted he’s old school – so I think it’ll be a case of him geeing them up and getting them to fight rather than any tactical masterclass.

    I also very much doubt he’ll be given the job or will even want it if we do somehow manage to stay up.

    Totally agree Standish, there is no-one more fickle than a fan.

    If your right SW then isn’t that reason enough why he should not get the job?. Fans are fed up and need a change of direction so does the club if they hope to keep the fanbase solid. Look I’ve nowt against him personally but I really believe a wholesale clear-out is necessary and a new management team is required. Next man in will have same situation as the others had.

    at 62 years of age I think Barrow should move over rather than be shoved over to development or something.
    The next manager needs a clean slate, He needs total control as to who he wants as his backroom staff. Barrow has been loyal to the club and knows it inside which will be the new managers first problem.
    I said it before, don’t be shocked if Graham Jones gets given a chance, he must be itching to give it a go himself. If he does , it’s back to sh*tty pants time every time the balls rolled out to our back 3
