Undoubtedly. We have to suffer extended spells of terrible results and/or football for the majority of our fanbase to truly want change.

I'd extend the same sentiment to our board as well, who (particularly compared to other clubs) tend to give our managers far more time than most. Very rarely do we dispose of a manager during the season, we more often than not decide it isn't going to work in the long run and release them during the summer.

I can only think of Turner, Smith and Sheringham who were sacked mid-season during recent times. That's three managers in the past 15 years, and whilst you *could* perhaps argue that at least some of them could have been afforded a few more games, you really cannot blame the board for making the decision they did at the time they did for any of them, all things considered.

Edit: Gillingham and Barnet, for instance, are onto their third or fourth managers over the past year alone! As many as we've sacked in a decade and a half.
