Goes against my belief that stability is key, but just as with Zola he HAS to go because we can't afford to wait around for things to maybe improve. The risks are too high.

Reluctantly I voted out now. I cannot see him recovering the situation and we need the new man in position in time to spend the money in January.

I would say im unsure...mainly because i dont know who i would want to replace him, and if we beat Wigan Saturday it might instill some belief in the side.

I might just vote saturday evening.

Anyone that wants the best for WHUFC should want this clown fired immediately.
Players dont want him, coaching staff dont want him, fans dont want him. His signings have been a disaster on the whole. His tactics laughable.

He remains becuase he is a mate of the owners preferred agent.

Grant out.

That hapless performance against Liverpool changed everything. I lost faith.

Out.

On the proviso that he acts in a proper manner at or away from the club, then he should be given the time he has been contracted for.

The players need to be sacked - not the manager.

We have chopped and changed managers for the last 10 years and got nowhere. Let's try keeping one for a change. If we are still nowhere then we haven't lost anything have we. Time to stick with what we've got - regardless of where we end up. But he must not lose dressing room.

If he can't get what is required from the players, he needs to be brave and act accordingly. Put in whoever he wants as long as he gets 100% from them - young or old.

and who the **** do we think will come AND spend the money better? MON, I bloody think not......and so on.
Gollivan I'm sure will have been asking themselves the same questions over the past few weeks, but finding some-one who can be attrracted and who is more proven and can invest wisely and with certainty may be little short of fantasy land.

To be honest, I'm on the fence after the Petrovic issue. Ditching your number two to save yourself is an act of cowardice. Being amiable to a bunch of coaches unknown to you being brought in to teach your team how to play football is even worse. This is like Zola in reverse...

I'm surprised that 13 people (surely more by the time you read this) want him to stay. Figured it would be more one-sided favoring the sack.

I voted give him more time. Getting in another new bloke will just give the players more excuses and the likes of Kovac another 6-9months to "prove himself". They are as much to blame as Grant and they need to recognise that performing badly has consequences for them, not the team manager.
