..... very honest, doesn’t shirk any questions [^] Interesting that he’s already referring to the next manager as head coach [8)]

Seems to have gone downhill since he got involved or when the others left.

I think so from what I have seen and heard about him Kev [^] He certainly puts the hours in with all the cr4p that’s still to sort, as well as doing the day to day stuff involved with running a football club.

Doesn't shirk any questions? Like the one about Nathan Jones? He didnt really answer or say anything much. We were doing fine til he arrived at the club! I've certainly yet to be persuaded that he knows what he's doing.

Part 1 of the Ben Mansford interview......
Sadler said he wanted a DOF when he came into the club so I thought he might keep one of the temp board on and use the other place on that. Someone to help the manager out and have an eye on bringing players with value to the club based on a combined effort.

Instead it looks like we’re going to have this fella playing god and sacking a head coach every six months to save his own skin.

All feels a bit like grabbing an opportunity to get back to england to me, done a good sales pitch to a new owner. And maybe not what is going to suit us. First set of club accounts for all this could be interesting with the cost of it all v the effectiveness. But we’ll see. Its just a feeling.

One I share and that of OG's, with a caveat. That being his and our motives seem to differ, so clueless wrt our side of things.

Part 1 of the Ben Mansford interview......
His average stint at a club is 781 days and we're on 113 here so far or thereabouts so that's the guide we're working to with this. Did just under six years as a football agent before that and five as a solicitor, which will be handy for him if he tries to start trying to sue people for having an opinion which differs to his 'in their drinking circles in their local pubs'.

It's good to have a plan as a club, less so when it's attached to one individual or it becomes too complicated. It needs someone with football knowledge to work with a manager to help take the pressure off, do the paperwork. Spot areas to strengthen and come up with solutions. Make sure the bits and pieces happen properly. Sort of thing Grayson had at the nobbers with fake chairman Ridsdale.

Or someone like Karl Oyston who focuses on controlling the spending but lets the manager just get on with it without any pressure?! [:O]

I think it's probably possible to be a bit too cynical about the likes of Ben Mansford, but also possible to be not cynical enough. He's seen an opportunity that moves him back towards where he wants to be. He's only been here a short while, adjusting to a unique set of circumstances. Hoping to use it as a stepping stone, no doubt. But he's unlikely to be here in 3 ior 4 years time. There's a lot of people in the world of football chasing the £ signs. His career progression suggests he could be one of them. He may be good at what he does, but people like him mainly thrive off the success of others. The club has looked a bit shambolic since he arrived, overblown attempts to revamp the squad in one fell swoop, sack the manager, offer the job to someone with no process employed to widen the net and assess the available candidates. Then pretend that a global search is under way, on the day that all hope of Jones phoning has gone. It's not a promising start.

Wouldn't be surprised if it's a global search in the hope that Dunn can start getting some wins with the players that Mansford brought in. And then make it formal that he's the head coach now with a convincing speech about how his efforts simply couldn't be ignored.

Which is pretty much what a lot of lower league clubs do without all the bells and whistles attached and fancy branding.

It would be great if a global search lasting for weeks ended with Dunn being appointed with Steve Banks as his number two.

Mmm. He said the other day that Grayson would have switched to the wing back system anyway had he still been in charge v Bristol but wasn't convinced, definitely trying to play things down with that.

Hopefully the new lads that were placed on public parade yesterday whilst the big interview was going on can help do something tomorrow.

“Drinking circles in pub”...

Very strange shout that or has the Excelsior or Tory Corner already made its mark on him?

Head XXXXXXin coach 🙈 here’s Grant Ward for you, he’s not played for 1 year but Rotherham wanted him so he must be alright, fit him in.

Aye. Got to January having not played for a year after career-impacting injury, but you share the same agent as three other Blackpool players, including one who's since signed for Rotherham? Play in a position that is already filled by four others in the squad? No problem! Here's an 18 month contract with a one year option, welcome aboard UTMP.

Lee Carsley and Karl Robinson now up on the Sky betting odds since the term Head Coach was used yesterday.

Is it his comments of wanting the new manager to entertain the crowd by playing the Blackpool way in an expansive, entertaining way that is making him useless, OG?

Some very strange comments on here [?] How is Ben Mansford doing everything on his own when he clearly states in the interview that he’s part of a 3 man team with Brett Gerrity and Simon Sadler?

Because he’s being paid a salary to show the other two how to run a football club as they’re new to it, and its become more unsettled than settled since he turned up.

If he’d got Nathan Jones through the door already as head coach by the time he removed the manager role and Grayson then fine but he hasn’t and now he’s trying to cover his tracks with a load of waffle to try to blag anyone who just wants to be a mushroom again.

Heard enough already tbh

Just appoint a coach or manager or whatever you’re calling the role and get on with it now. This last month or so has completely taken the edge off getting our club back.
