Also Stale Mince has launched a new ‘eco’ airline however initially it will run on kerosene Image

It was a gimmick, a PR stunt and she was totally used by him for his own personal gain. The club is a laughing stock

Hi, you couldn't look after thins fro a couple of weeks while we sort out holiday cover, new person etc. This somehow equates to - ""Although she did not get the top job this time, it's undoubtedly been a valuable experience and a big step on her career path.""

She should re-evaluate if she wants to stay there. I think DV humiliated her for his own publicity

No doubt Dale lapped up the publicity, and it somehow leaves a bit of a bad taste that she wasn’t really considered (from what I’ve heard ) given the way it was pushed in the media.

She was officially named interim though, so her lasting 2 weeks shouldn’t be a shock to anyone. She hasn’t been sacked or anything, will go back to her job as head of academy. And she is higher profile now, which might be useful if she goes for other coaching jobs. So on that basis it hasn’t done her any harm.

Vince would have been directing 'that' message to the media, he used her as a PR tool off the back of DF leaving, spin it all you want, the club is becoming a laughing stock. Why anyone would want anything to do with fgr while he's there is quite beyond me.

Genuine question to you Chris FGR:

What's the general consensus of Vince at FGR? From the outside it seems (to Vince) the actual team playing football is getting less and less important to him and the brand of Vince and what he represents is his main focus, the football club is becoming more and more his play thing.

Your only season in league one was a complete disaster and I was quite surprised how poorly organised you were considering Vince wanted to be in the 'Championship soon', do you think the tide will turn on Vince?

Mixed I would say. It’s been the case for a while that a number of our longer serving fans aren’t hugely keen on him, but he does do a good job of surrounding himself with yes men to help block criticism out.

Obviously last season was a complete clusterfuck which eroded a lot of the positivity built up the previous year. The club seems to have a revolving door policy with staff and communication with fans that aren’t VIP/hospitality is mainly shite. Season ticket sales are down and I expect our crowds will reflect that. It does seem like those at the top took their eye off the ball and we’ve been a mess this last year because of it.

Another season of struggle and the knives will start coming out more I reckon, although there will always be a number of sycophants defending him.

I've met your new CEO. He seems to be in it for the long haul, at least, having come over from New Zealand.
