Bunn’s sacking is laughable. Less than a fortnight since they were excellent against us and they are still in the only domestic cup that matters. When will clubs learn? Yesterday we were turned over by an excellent performance- wonder who the manager was?? (No disrespect to Lowey who has done a terrific job so far)

Chopping and changing managers throughout the season doesn't necessarily bring success (as we well know, albeit factoring in other well documented reasons).  Presumably their new-ish owner doesn't feel that progress up and eventually out of this league is fast enough.  I'm still mystified as to why a Moroccan based football agent wants to invest in a Northern lower league football club - one that has already sold off it's surrounding land for housing (what happened to the revenue from that?) and is, along with Rochdale and Bury, dealing with the pull and proximity of the so called 'big two' in the PL.  Apparently Bunn, a former player and something of a talisman for OAFC in his day was also sacked via. email.  What a disgrace.

Sat here waiting for Agent Parky to get his marching orders. What are the odds on Bigmouth Sam taking over at the Reeconbowl? Hope he doesn't expect to be paid though.

0-6 isn't such a bad score the way Wanderers are playing. Perhaps their fortunes might improve if they were renamed Bury South West.

0 - 6 and the nought flattered them. Trouble is they will probably scrape past walsall in the cup, get a bit of confidence and start winning again. But here's some happy FA Cup memories..

Philo Parkinson must be out of the same stable as Thereas May and Boris Johnson - totally unsackable no matter how bad they are. Must be great having a boss who can't afford to buy you off!!

Revolving door again, Wendies appoint Steve Bruce.

Bit of a Peter Pan appointment this one. Probably in charge at Gigg by 2025.

I don't think they can - a) Afford to sack him and b) Pay another manager.

Weird one as Sheridan resigns with Carlisle in a rich vein of form.

Rumoured to be returning to "High Flying" Chesterfield.

I can't understand this one, apart from he must live fairly close, and travel to Carlisle is a bind.

They're dropping like a stone, absolutely no money, though he did a reasonable job keeping Oldham up. Probably back to Oldham in 6 months...

Nearly 25% in 5 months. Mental!

Well hopefully we won't be adding to those stats in the next couple of years.

Nathan Jones seems a very impressive manager. Seemed to know more about our players when interviewed after the FA Cup game than we know ourselves! Built a smart Luton team.
