    Just as well us fans aren't making such a critical decision. The last thing we need is a knee jerk reaction.
    IL appoints a new manager in a week and gets it wrong - everyone moans, bides his time and allows a few weeks to make an informed and logistical decision and everyone moans. I really feel sorry for anyone in IL position, we must sound like the worst bunch of unappreciative moaners.
    It's just as well IL has a thick skin and isn't susceptible to the people who want the best for this club but won't allow the 'necessary' time.
    If it isn't Wilder it's the players, if it's not the players it's ML, if it isn't ML it's IL. If it isn't IL it's another two letter abbreviation.
    Just look at who we are as a club and have a look at some of the others - Portsmouth anyone?
    It has been a very long time since I felt a ounce of safety in anyone concerned with running the club and I finally feel the club is safe in IL hands.
    ...and no I'm not associated with IL neither am I being paid..but I am open to offers, IL?
    We are in a mess right now, and the reason for it is not giving WIlder the new contract that he clearly deserved. You can't just let his contract run out and expect him to carry on chirpily, with no guarantee of an extension....

    IL has invested a fair bit into the club already, so pursuing with ML is understandable financially - but footballing wise it is madder than the dog himself. Wilder was the man. Now we have no nous left.

    I don't think we are gonna even make the play-offs. Surely that failure, 87, would have you agree that something has gone badly wrong in recent months...."
