So overall 30 points out of 24 since he began.

Over a season thats 57 points which would have seen us finish 16th last season, 14 points behind the final play off place and 15 points above relegation.

Nicely back on topic...

And I think we’ll finish slightly higher than that (about 12th/13th), but well worked out.

So we’ve ended the dismal winless away run.

Now can we win 2 matches in a row? Something we haven’t managed to do since January which is utterly pathetic.

No decent teams in this league - as has been said - Exeter will have a go and play football so it might actually suit us.

I said 3 weeks ago that he needs more time, but that we have to start seeing signs of improvements over the next month.

Have to say I don’t think there’s been improvements so far, if anything the performances are getting worse. The defence isn’t showing any signs of improving, the rate we’re conceding not just goals but clear goal chances is alarming. Exeter could have had 7 goals today.

I’m not in the pressley out stage yet but I’m starting to have doubts. I’m worrying that all his talk over the summer about this new super pressing ‘fittest team in the league’ was all bollocks and what we’re seeing is just more of the same shite under him that got us from automatic promotion challengers to bottom 6 form in the second half of last season. I certainly don’t see a team that is fitter than any of its opponents, in fact often I see the opposite.

Tactically i’m not impressed. His substitutions don’t seem well thought out, it’s just “throw on another striker” then when we still don’t score “throw on another striker”. Sometimes I don’t think players know where they are supposed to be playing. I never feel like we’re going to come back and win a game from behind. I’d love to see a stat about that if anyone can be arsed...

As for the back 4, it could well be the worst back 4 since the one Curle inherited. It’s an unorganised mess that leaks goals left right and centre and if not for a good goalkeeper would probably have leaked double.

As I say, not quite in the wanting him sacked stage but I’m having serious concerns. I’m googling waterproof mattresses in preparation.

Pressley is what he always has been 'useless.
People have been saying give him time FFS HE HAS BEEN HERE WITH TWO SQUADS OF PLAYERS NOW AND PRODUCED ? NOTHING.
He and his mate Holdsworth are full of bulls*it.
You are waiting for what. He has no managerial ability.

We're not even 6 weeks in and we're in panic mode because even tho some are never satisfied with performances, we haven't been as low as 19th for seasons.
We have no big characters, all been stripped out....McKirdy excites at times, the rest are bland. Nobody is shouting at fellow players except Carroll yesterday, for the wrong reasons tho. The team is in danger of mimicking the manager who is dour at best.
The key is Gav Skelton imo he needs to step up and get in Pressleys ear
We have some skillful players but you have to wonder if things would have been better if Etuhu had been fit to play from KO

No Seesaw, the key to all of this, is the sh1t manager.
I am amazed that anyone is remotely surprised by our start to the season.
This manager has failed everywhere he has been. Why was he suddenly going to succeed here?
What is Skelton going to whisper in Pressley's ear that is going to change anything??
Due to my refusal to give the board my money I've only seen us away from home so I can't comment on home games,but I've been to them all away except Barnsley.
I've seen enough away from home to know his signings are shocking, but his tactics border on the ridiculous.
I've seen nothing in that team to suggest we can finish any higher than the bottom 2.
I predicted all of this in the summer, and forecasted an October sacking for Pressley after a Collins-esque start to the season.
It looks like I might not be far wrong.

It's a good job there's only one relegation place. We might just survive.

Well it is true his record isn't great but what we saw in pre season, the first game v Crawley to what I saw away at Cheltenham alarm bells are ringing. Bare in mind tho the poor start we had last season under Sheridan ...new manager, new players syndrome but as you say by October if theres no signs we are on the up a decision needs to be taken.
Altho frustrating and disappointing have to keep positive at the mo.

Although we like to read it, naming under-performing players in the press is the best way to lose the changing room, he already has one foot out of the door. If the crowds drop, the other will very quickly follow.

Anyone seriously think they’d sack Pressley this early into the season? We’d have to pay his contract up and then shell out for the salary of a new manager.

Unless we’re bottom 2 which may well be the case in a couple of weeks time, I can’t see them even considering giving him the boot.

They ignored the opportunity to get rid for free in the summer after the terrible job he did last season, so sacking him now would make them look really stupid.

I just wonder if anyone agreed that Pressley seems to possibly make playing football very difficult, lets be honest he isn't coaching Barcelona, just about every interview he gives he talks about looking at his laptop, stats, analysis, he is looking to bring another couple of people in to provide even more data.

I appreciate football has moved on and the top teams will use data for lots of things to maintain their position at the top, but I think if Pressley is having team meetings and banging away about stats, yards run, throw in success etc the players will switch off, I know I do in meetings when this happens.

I noticed when a sub was coming on against mansfield one of the coaches got a folder out and was flicking over pages pointing things out, the said player was nodding but just wanted to get on the pitch.

Getting on with the game always worked for me playing on hammonds pond pitch or the common on Scalegate road, that even included a break to have tea, wolf it down then straight back into the action !

This kind of Data work was actually pioneered by smaller teams to close the gap on bigger teams and it actually worked really well across multiple , sports the first big example was in baseball watch "moneyball" you'll also find the not having this done is more of a rare thing even at our level. When you working on a budget , you can't always go man to man , you have to find that hidden edge.

I've heard Elvis's laptop has no guts in it and his notebook only contains his shopping list. This was from a very reliable source.

All this data is all well and good in the right hands but Pressley thought Anna Lyst was the lass on reception until last week. :)

How long before Elvis gets the mallet?

I'm going for two weeks on Monday after poor showings against Newport (A), Crewe (H) and Plymouth (A)

Seems like a reasonable fella and I wanted him to do well but he's too easy pleased for my liking and doesn't look like he's got much idea to be honest. Which is a shame.

Can we get anybody much better then becomes the big question. Gavin Skelton would be the most likely replacement and he'd be very cheap cost effective.

Pressley isn’t very good, but who do you get to manage this shower.

The only manager those players should get is a zoo keeper it’ll be more apt. If you pay peanuts you get monkeys.

Blame lies with owners/investors for this latest shambles. No doubt Pressley will be gone this week and all the blame but on him while the owners get none and still think there doing a good job.

At least we’re not Stockport

We have a bottom 6 budget and are 5th bottom so you could argue he's on par - you get what you pay for.

Time for him to go. He proved last season that he was crap, got a new deal and promised with his own team it’d be better. It’s arguably worse. He had a hissy fit when people questioned him last season as it wasn’t his team. Well guess what, it’s team now. No excuses.

There are some decent players here, with a competent manager and a few additions in January we could save the season.

Pressley is only taking us one way and that’s backwards. The team looks clueless, the team tactics are there are no tactics, the players look badly coached, players seem to get worse under his guidance.

We’re almost a third of the way through the season and haven’t had a single good home performance. Salford was ok but shite defending put a dampener on it. Crowds are dropping, and will continue to drop with these levels of shittery. He’s the worst we’ve had since kavanagh and getting close to his levels, he’s that bad.

The club must act and terminate the contract of Steven Pressley.
