Ian Burchnall Leaves for Forest Green Rovers

Recommended Posts

Also been reported that Michael Doyle will join him.

I can understand why he’s gone, a L1 club that’s well backed and even if he does get sacked, he’ll still probably be able to get a FL job. I don't begrudge him moving but I’d have preferred him to stay, just to see if he was capable of addressing our weaknesses. I think we’d have learnt a lot more next season in terms of knowing whether IB was capable of taking us up. Now I guess we’ll never know.

How do you feel about the news?

It's probably been sorted for a long time. It would have been nice for him to stay loyal, but let's be realistic - if we were 13 this coming October, he'd have been sacked. Loyalty cuts both ways in football. If I were him I'd probably do the same.

I'm slightly disappointed but I think this is an opportunity for us now. Like under Neal Ardley before him, we've lacked a ruthless streak under his tenure and this is our chance to find a manager who can instil it (without throwing away everything we've done over the last couple of years). 

Hope he enjoys his veggie burgers 😉
