[quote user="BlyBlyBabes"].... than the brutal way in which Bryan Gunn was treated. And just think how Butterworth, Crook, Deehan and the players - especially those he brought in must be feeling. This is not the Norwich way Miss Smith. You must go now. I was rather underwhelmed by the original appointment of Bryan Gunn. But once Team Gunn emerged with the addition of the other former Carrow Road stalwarts I thought why not give it a go and wish them good luck. The psychological mess and loan policy left by Roeder was always likely to lead to relegation, so when Gunn was confirmed as manager, allowed to do a little housecleaning, throw out the loans policy, bring in 12 new players etc I thought Team Gunn would be given a few months to prove themselves. I suspect that stagefright, bad luck and panic fed on each other against Colchester and the the Yeovil result was more a true reflection of the quality of the team. Surely there were no clues in the pre-season build-up which would have predicted imminent catastrope, which supports this theory. No. Panic took over after Colchester, and McNally and Bowker saw their main chance - and Smith acquiesced in the vain hope that they would rescue her from the pending firestorm. Ken Brown is bemused. I am bemused, embarrassed and angry. No matter how hard or difficult things are this is just not the way to do things. Fire Gunn by all means if that is the considered solution. But not in this brutal and unfair manner. I mean, by what kind of judgement do you give a man (a team really) a new contract, allow him to restructure the squad, bring in 12 new players etc and then fire him (them? as they must be almost as culpable mustn''t they?) after a freak 1-7 followed by a good 4-0 against comparable opposition. And still the majority will not admit that their Empress has no clothes! All I will say in summary is that there are ways to do things - and brutality and public humiliation are NOT the way. And the buck stops at the top. And that''s the way I see it. Nuff said. One love. OTBC [/quote] Unfortunately, the Colchester result cannot be glossed over that easily. It may well have been a freak result, but, more importantly it brings into question Gunn''s tactics, team selection, quality of signings, man management and motivational ability. Quite simply, Gunn was not up to job, as he proved last season. The Board got it wrong when it placed him in temporary charge in January, and, they got it wrong aqain when they offered him the job in the Summer. McNally deserves credit for trying to put this right and turn us back into a football club.
