Simple fact of life is nice guys in football generally dont win.
This reminds me a lot of the Leworthy era, he was a great clubman, his Youth team record spoke for itself, we all loved him and campaigned for his appointment but it soon became apparent that he wasn't right for the job.
Shaun is hugely popular with the supporters as a man and a person, always approachable and likeable, that doesn't mean he makes a good manager.
He has brought together a good set of players but they have no team ethic or motivation.
They motivate themselves, when they feel like it, most are highly paid premadonas who have done it already and are quite happy to come here and take a good wage without really having to push themselves, and ultimately it will fall on Shaun's head. I feel sorry for him in the fact that highly regarded players have let him down so much. It is his job to motivate them though and if he isnt able to do that then unfortunately its time to go.
For months Hawks have been putting up a staunch united front, mainly against the dirtbags from down the road, to the fact that we have ended up with the better man, in the better position and can also take the moral high ground.
Secretly we all know that's a load of boollex and for all his many unlikeable qualities, and the unsavoury company he keeps (our ex players who we used to support) he is a cut above Shaun as a Manager and we have seriously lost out in this deal.
Keep the moral high ground, sure. But its time everyone opens there eyes and stops this us and them, Baird and Gale competition and get on with the job of keeping this club in the Conference South, because there is a real possibility of relegation.
Rant over, see you all again soon
