He’s not been sacked today has he so I gather he’s got another week

MK is a hit and miss game but I think FA cup is huge for the club this year in terms of money.

At the same time we also need to focus on the league too and if this really poor run of form continues and PW leaves it too late then we will find ourselves back in non league and won’t return for years! So it’s big risk if PW is keeping Revs on longer

Players have let him down as well tbf, with the squad we have we should be doing much better! Just don’t think they’re showing it that’s all

A quote from Radio Humberside:

Mike White, Sports Editor

This decision will come as little surprise to most, given the club's league position, although many fans will feel it should have happened before now.

Sadly he is talking about Neil Cox being sacked by Scunthorpe today. But if the cap fits...

‘With the squad we have we should be doing much better’

If I had a pound for the amount of times I read that on here… Half this squad is National League at best and that’s being generous. I’m not sure I’d keep anymore than 4 of the current squad and that’s also being generous

Judging a player on what they’ve done elsewhere should give a good indication of what they may able to do. But the second they sign for us they should be judged on their performances for us alone. On that basis a lot of this squad are far from good enough. Why? Because we’ve been shit for years now.

Like I said we’ve got players who have won promotions and been in play off finals.

I wouldn’t say Bruno, Taylor, Reeves, Lines, Cuthbert, List etc are all national league standard

However I would say there are some who are national standard but certainly not most of the team

"Players have let him down as well tbf,"

If the players are good enough then Revs has lost the dressing room otherwise the results would be much better.

So Wallace waits until the January transfer window, Revs gets rid of the players he doesn't feel are right (trouble makers), replaces these then what happens?

There will be another band of players that will see right through him again....dressing room lost again!

List has the potential to be a top League Two striker, if given decent, regular service. People on here slagging him off for being a poor finisher don't know what they're talking about.

Lines is a solid L2 midfielder, but he's also very old. Reeves is a pretty standard L2 midfielder, but he has games where he looks like he'd struggle in the Conference. Taylor looks a competent enough L2 midfielder, but again, nothing remarkable.

Bruno is a Conference player. Hence why he was playing in the Conference when we signed him.

Cuthbert is well past his sell-by date. We should have gotten rid of him last season. He's likely still good enough for the Conference, but I don't think he's good enough for L2 anymore.

As for the players you haven't mentioned, I think Norris is a pretty solid L2 striker. Unremarkable, again, but he's decent enough. He's also shown he can get amongst the scoring with the right service. I don't really have any issues there.

Coker is massively overrated by people on here. He's at best average and at worst a complete liability. Prosser is somehow worse than Coker, yet people still refuse to accept how bad he is.

TVC is prone to the odd clanger, but he tends to have the odd bad game, rather than lots of mistakes littered about every game. He's either solid, or is poor, but his poor games tend to be less frequent than his good ones.

LJW gets away with a lot because he's fast. He is very, very error prone and his positional sense is questionable. I don't really have a massive issue with him, because he provides quite a lot of speed going forward, but I'd rather a steady-Eddy right back.

Anang is never going to be a Premier League goalkeeper. He's way too error prone, seems to have poor concentration, and I think he has an issue with his application (he often looks like he's too casual, which I think is why he fucks up so often).

I think Read has a lot of quality, but can't get in the team consistently enough to do it. I think he'll improve massively with a decent run of games, preferably not playing left wing.

Osborne is pretty average. Another unremarkable player who I don't have a big issue with but he's hardly a player you build the team around.

Carter isn't good enough for League 2. I'd also question whether Smith is, either.

I can't think of anyone else who's regularly in the team, which means they're not good enough either.

The only players we've had recently who can make a genuine claim that they are a top-end League 2 player (or better) are List, Pett, Cumming and maybe TVC and Norris. The rest are either bang average, or well below average.

The right manager would get much, much more out of these players.

They could be good enough or they might actually be good enough, we will never know with Revs.

Totally agree, we still have the makings of a good squad in my opinion and players don't just turn shit overnight. We we're playing good football at the start of the season and everything looked great.

I believe Lines, Taylor, Reeves, Andrade, Reid are all good L2 signings.

Cuthbert is beginning to struggle with age, still our best defender though

What if we then lose in the league and are back to square 1 but this time losing to a team around us.

Well that’s the issue isn’t it.

Wouldn’t surprise me if we win Saturday tbh as it’s FA and we tend to turn up in them sort of competitions.

Tbf we were poor at this stage last season and we gave Revs January transfer window to sort it out and after that we started to turn up and get results

Maybe that’s what PW is thinking? Who knows but that’s my guess

Difference from last season to this is we signed non league players last year as we thought we'd be in the NL. Think we all thought he possibly deserved the Jan window to turn it around with better players.

This season he's started with his players that were signed to push for the playoffs, his and Wilkins words. Most think these players are good enough.

Thing is they are good enough

Players like Bruno, Reeves, Taylor, Lines, Cuthbert, List etc all of them played for big teams and some of them won promotions and have experience.

No reason at all why this team can’t turn this around, I just think they need confidence and belief in themselves.

It feels like we are like Mansfield atm, got good players but sitting near the bottom

So, in a way its pointless getting rid of Revs. Any other manager will be up against the same toxic atmosphere.
Mr Wallace may have stepped back too far, passing the running of the club to others, allowing this toxitity to thrive.
Maybe he is rectifying this issue in the background.
In the meantime we live in hope of survival this season. What a sad state of affairs.

No. Phil is involved day to day I'm sure. He's on the phone regularly. And remember Leon is here too. Between them I don't think much happens without a nod from either of them.
Toxic is not a word id use for SFC. Last season I know the players loved turning up for training and winning games.
What's the difference? We got Reeves and Taylor and lost Petty is one reason.

I'd rather we didn't persevere with a manager who needs a loanee or a coup to turn things around. I'd at like to see the basics there to start with. Revs can't get the basics right, and if he can't figure that out at this point, with this amount of pressure to get it right, then he doesn't have the capability of doing it.
