You'd better hope it works then as next season is your last with parachute payments, as it is with us now, already dreading next year. That's the confirmation of the status of non league and shite. All these bottom half budgets are threatening the natural order.
Gateshead are 'backed' by a bloke overseas who wants to build an underwater casino, he's just waiting for the work on his hollowed out volcano in the middle of the ocean to be finished before he gets started on it.
For first time in years the fans seem to be happy, very good appointment on paper.
All the big earners are out of contract (except Newton who managed to get a 3 year contract)
So next season got new ground and lots out of contact.
Didn't know that, good news for York who can hopefully finally start moving forward. Funnily enough, even after such a terrible season the play-offs aren't a million miles away, start winning away and big and who knows? Could do a Bradford PA...
Still would be a step or two up from Wheeler in terms of managerial calibre but would his heart actually in it for a full-on managerial job? I think he’s much better suited to the Director of Football role he just started with us!
If the "Head of Football" is responsible for team selection then that puts Hayrettin (or whoever you make Head Coach) in a difficult position.
Fair enough if you are appointing Still as DoF to make signings as per the continental model, but having him pick the team without taking training is a recipe for disaster. Plus - who will lead the team from the touchline?
This won't end well for Maidstone, hopefully Still will do us a favour by signing some of our poorer players on 2 year deals like he did in the summer when he signed a load from Dagenham.
