    They'll go for Newport's Manager after a series of scouting reports.

    I agree he's taking us in a more positive direction with getting us to pass the ball and get youngsters involved. However, I think he's not clever tactically and he has no idea on how to sort out our defensive frailties. Long term I don't think he's the right man. He's a stop gap, not someone who will drive us forward.

    I agree with that. He doesn't know our best team.

    So far out of his depth not even a rubber ring and arm bands can save him.
    i

    Time is not on his side.
    VT and Co need to decide by the end of this month whether they are prepared to stick with him at the risk of relegation or appoint a more experienced or alternative person who might have a better chance of avoiding relegation.
    If we get relegated I do not believe that many of us would be enthused about Morison being the manager next season.
    As fans we would undoubtedly be disappointed to be relegated but I think VT and Co more so.

    it's a hell of a lot better than Mick McCarthy s was, at least the days of 5 centrebacks are behind us.

    plenty of his selections have been not what I would want, bit none of them have been that terrible.
    I think he understands how this formation and style of play works and is trying to achieve that with what is the least valuable squad we've had in a decade.

    We need qualified people higher up the food chain. Then you might see some improvement. Until then, decisions made regarding managers will be hap hazard.

    Morison is too inexperienced for the job. He is too much of an unknown quantity.

    That said, I feel like a majority of the people on here wanted him, so we'll have to live with it for a while.

    Re: Morison OUT

    In the short space of time that he's been here i can see the direction in which he wants us to go.
    Sadly at the moment he hasn't had a transfer window to bring in the players that will suit his style of play so can only use what he's got. I'd like the club to give him time to have a good go rather that rush and jump the gun again.

    Whilst there's absolutely no point getting rid now, has anyone really seen anything worthy of keeping him on at the summer.

    We are playing better we are just stuck with the shit Warnock left us with.
    Hoplefully in the summer we can get rid of them and bring in players that can play the way Morison wants us to.

    Agree, there is nothing to suggest the club has learned anything from the serial failures in decision making over the last 3 years or so.

    There is no-one who knows anything about football on the board and the so-called leadership is AWOL. On the theme of recruitment does the batshit crazy Transfer Committee still exist anymore?

    Expect more in the way of random managerial appointments until the club brings credible football expertise on board.

    if the season ended today then I dunno, you could understand them letting him go, but on the other hand I would fear a return to long ball style with whatever appointment they come up with next.

    in terms of what we've seen so far I'd say:
    positives:
    a genuine desire for us to play a more modern style of football, that hasn't been abandoned at the first hurdle.
    undeniable improvement in results and performances from the end of the McCarthy regime.
    he's demonstrated that he understands the system that we are trying to play, no longer are we playing centre backs or central midfielders at wing back.
    continued McCarthy's good work in bringing young players into the side - more often playing them in their correct positions.
    the team seems motivated and with good togetherness (although it is still early days)
    the team can battle their way back into a match after going behind.

    negatives:
    we are still very much in a relegation scrap
    results are still not good
    his interview style could use a lot of polish.
    seems a bit too defensive on a personal level
    we still concede soft goals far too easily often from simple through balls.
    we don't have very much attacking threat still.

    I'd say 5.5/10 so far, but we need to turn some of the promising steps into actual results

    This I agree with.
    Morison has years of neglect to try and turn around.
    He needs time to do that and heís trying to balance that with avoiding relegation.
    Maybe now would be a good time to appoint a Director of Football to give him a bit of headroom.
    Olťís free, isnít he? 😆

    Re: Morison OUT

    I think we'll stick with him until we drop into the bottom 3 and if we are in there with 10-12 games to go the board might act.

    Either way, he's not really shown anything so far that would make me think he'd be the man to turn things around when half the squad is out of contract in the summer. Our defence is as useless as it's ever been, and we've not kept a clean sheet since he took over. Still just the one all season. The well talked about criticism of Davies whilst ignoring the more senior pros is quite telling as well.

    Hopefully we can find a few wins from somewhere and manage to stay up courtesy of Reading and Derby's points deductions, and Peterborough and Barnsley being even worse than us, but if we lose to Barnsley away or Peterborough at home at the start of Feb it will be a bit nervy, if we lose both I don't see him surviving it.

    I would try and get Nathan Jones in the summer, I know it didn't go well for him at Stoke but I'd be far more more confident in having him starting something from scratch than Morrison.

    in terms of refreshing the squad, the players we've been linked to recently are pretty good, if that's the way we are going to go then I wouldn't have too many complaints

    He's here to keep us up. If he succeeds he'll have done his job. This isn't the start of some major re-building, we're just bring in a few players to add to the squad and give him more options.

    yeah of course this window is likely to be only loan moves to help steer us clear of the drop.
    I meant the next window where we are potentially losing like 9 players or something

    Re: Morison OUT

    Any club doing any planning would never have appointed him. Our chairman explicitly ruled him out but 4 points from 9 was enough to get him the job. Had kieffer not scored a last minute goal to win v Huddersfield Morison would never have got the job.

    However worth a go. I however have seen enough. The guy is hugely out of his depth and its frankly embarrassing having him manage the club when he conducts himself the way he does. We have purse and Hudson here also-both would be a better fit than Morison. I'd get shot ASAP.

    why do you think purse and Hudson would be better?

    people seem to be reading a lot into a couple of admittedly poor interviews - that's a very small part of the job in my opinion. if he gets us winning games then he can be as arsey as he likes in interviews
