That's him out of the running then, as no way would you ever expose your mate to a team as frustrating as ours.

I'm baffled as to why Rob Edwards would even be considered

he's only managed 60 games as a club manager in the top leagues with an overall win ratio of 41%

Watford were awful i thought when we played them considering the quality of their side

He didn't last long there, which in itself is hard to judge given the frequency of Managerial appointments at Vicarage road

Because his FGR team played in the same formation and with their main attacking threat coming from the wing backs. He's highly regarded as an upcoming coach. I understand the argument it was only 1 year at forest green, but we've gone for the tried and tested managers, and one in Wilder who I think we all thought would take us back up, and it's not worked. A young ambitious coach who is ready to grow alongside us rather than to use us a quick stepping stone to a higher level could be what we need in terms.of this new structure we're going down.


I have no idea if he's the right guy, if he comes. But Ive been excited by plenty of players and managers that have come in that have been a big disappointment so, personally, I'm not against this.

He left Telford after an uninspiring spell. Started off at FGR like a house on fire, better than Wilder here, but like Wilders team, his tactics seem to have been sussed out and his latter results were mediocre. What pi55ed people off about Wilder was his open courting of Burnley. This guy went one better and actually spoke to another club without permission, sorted out his contract and then left. I dont see any redeeming features with this guy, nor the attraction. I would be really surprised if Gibson wanted him. He wont tap up a manager in a job so cant see him being attracted to this character.

His odds are lengthening but he’s still odds on. I still can’t see it being him, but you never know. I think it would have been announced by now if it was going to be him though.

I think if Leo wins on Saturday he will be impossible to replace.

1. THAT SPEACH - Hi I’m Rob isn’t gonna stand up against ‘forged in steel and iron’
2. POINTS PER GAME - Took the Pish Chris, didn’t even manage one point per game.
3. HE’S HERE NOW - He deserves his place, no new guy is gonna cut the mustard.
4. THE ACADEMY- Our pride and joy, Hackney, Gibson, Bilongo et al
5. THE TEAM - Tinkler, Liddle, Cattermole & Fettis

Think you’ll find it’s Tinks, Catts and Lidds.

Thing is if he's favourite because he's Scott's best mate but Gibson is put off by his s***y behaviour to FGR then its going to cause tension. Plus as said realistically if Leo kept winning any new man is going to be on a hiding to nothing if he comes in and doesn't hit the ground running.

This is exactly what this guy would do. How he left FGR showed you everything about the man. They gave him his first break in a decent league, and he snakes them behind their backs the first chance a better job comes around. Absolutely zero class. Add this to the fact he basically limped over the League 2 line with FGR, then failed miserably to show he had a clue he knew what he was doing at this level with that Watford squad, and I don't want him anywhere near us.

Worth bearing in mind that he had come into Forest Green with one of the biggest budgets in League Two having not exactly pulled up trees at AFC Telford and England’s U16 side. Clearly up and coming but there’s zero guarantees of what he will do and judging by his time at Watford he is not suited to this level. I can’t fault his playing style at Forest Green mind you but he did inherit some top class players who are now excelling having made summer moves to the Championship and top end of League 1.
