How about we keep our manager and get promoted to the Prem and we get £120m to pay for the stadium... Now we have a lame duck manager and a bunch of players badly let down by someone they've hardly ever met.
I hope you're not referring to the bloke who pays them six figure salaries as badly letting them down?

Some need to remember where we are, where we were and where we could have been without MB. Some may have only experienced last 3 years of mainly fond memories, but nearly 50 for me with much frustration at best. MB wanted to push for Premier league with some much needed competition for tiring players, we missed that boat, but still in with a shout of play offs and at worst a top 10 finish I wouldnt have thought possible 6 years ago. Keep the faith, because things could be a damn site worse.

I don't know what's going on, hopefully Mondays statement will sort it out, but we've lost to Charlton today and this time last week we'd have beaten them... So the sooner everything is sorted out the better.

Support Benham or not? It's almost laughable - at the end of the day I couldn't give a **** about players, managers who go through the revolving door but to find an owner with the vision and resources of Benham is in football terms, a lottery win. It's never happened in my lifetime and almost certainly never will again. People say remember Noades - Noades invested jack sh*t in Brentford whereas Benham has shown the colour of his money. To not support him seems to me to be ludicrous beyond words.

If Mark Warburton is a casualty along the way then so be it, harsh as that may sound. If Aston Villa or any other Prem club had got in touch in the last few months, I suspect that he wouldn't be showing a huge amount of loyalty, in much the same way as Rosler didn't, despite Rosler using Benham for his big break.

Yes but unfortunately the "Mark Warburton, We want you to stay " chants were far louder. It seems a wave is more important and loyal than £90 M and counting.
I can only assume that these idiots who feel a wave is more important haven't been following us for the last 30-40 years. In the fight between MB and MW, there is and can only ever be one winner.

There is a huge difference between the job being done by Warburton and the job done by Rosler at BFC

So its all Warburtons fault? Did benham get this team spirit sky high? If not i rest my case. Everyone can be criticized, everyone can make mistakes, just not someone who thankfully I may add put the cash in?

So did the " there's only one MB" song get a airing ?
Yes mate but only once there was plenty of Warbs songs including the "we want you to stay 'remember it was sung at the end of last season to Saville and Donaldson had a great impact didn't it.Just think those same fans will be telling him to F off by the end of March if he's still here

I have been supporting them 12 years, am I allowed an opinion? Is this the way we want it?

Yeah... a wave, that's what Mark's relationship with the fans boils down to...

...and the fact that he's been our most successful manager since 1953 :rolleyes:

He surely won't be here in March. For the good of our club he needs to go now, and that is taking nothing away from the great times he has helped give us.

Totally agree, love the guy and will have no bad thoughts towards him but I hope he goes very soon.

No but press speculation is rife and people read papers, mates read papers etc. :lastpostunlessigetinsultedagain:
If some snidey useless employee hadn't leaked to the press we wouldn't be subject of speculation and while we wouldn't have stayed in play off spots we would still have hope.

I'm an optimist but our play off hopes are over this season and I'll sadly have any bet you like.

Who would you class as our most successful owner in that timeframe? How successful do you think Warbs would be with a budget comparable to Leroy? Do you think we'd be in the Championship without MB's £90M investment to date?

Agree 100%, don't dislike Warbs, he's done a fantastic job but the situation unfortunately is untenable so rather he goes than Matthew?

Do you think that fans are singing Warburton's name because he waves at us?

Spot on, Rosler looked a good manager under MB, look how he's done since. As I posted before upsetting Ealing Bee I could have got the squad Rosler had promoted with my daughter as assistant.

No they are singing his name because he has done a good job of using the enormous (by bfc standards) resources funded by MB. That doesn't change the fact that without MB we would be nothing, and, dare I say it, would MW.

Assuming you're referring to MB, I'm struggling to reconcile how the players have been let down by someone who was more than prepared to make additional funds available to strengthen the squad in January and improve our chances of promotion. MW has done magnificently but if what has been reported is true, and I believe it is, to end up in a situation whereby those funds weren't used, leaving a tired squad very light in areas where we've been light for some time, is deeply disappointing. I don't think MB has handled the PR side of this well at all but I can see no case for accusing him of acting in anything other than what he considers to be the best interest of BFC.

OK so lets assume Mark leaves, does DW go as well and who's going to take over ?

That's not quite true us it Rosler managed to make us look pretty bloody awful in patches last year as both you and I know and whilst I'm sure that you and your daughter make a fantastic management team I think you're selling Warburton's achievements in achieving promotion a little short.
