1 -0 down and season over according to YorkshireJAMES1 James on twitter (though some of us reckon there is still half the game to go).

Who the hell is touting Rudy (62 years old, never managed at this level) and Curtis Woodhouse (zero success with his rather idiosyncratic approach to management with a club two divisions below) as serious candidates? As with their previous article profiling eleven potential new managers, it appears the SN are randomly picking names of anybody vaguely local with a tenuous Boro link.

Whilst I don’t think Rudy would be the ideal candidate for the job, I can’t see his age being a problem - Sir Alex was managing (well) into his seventies.

It’s not Rudy’s age alone which makes his suggestion ridiculous, it’s the lack of any experience whatsoever at this level. A young guy starting out would at least make some sense, as would an older guy with experience of this level, but not an older guy starting out at this level, based purely on sentiment. At least the SN haven’t thrown Mitch Cook’s name in there yet, l suppose.

Sideways,Backwards,Downwards? by BoroNo7 User: BoroNo7

Posted: 19/3/2019 at 21:48:22, 405 views.

Call me a cynic if you will, but there must be more to the recent sacking of SK than meets the eye

After Saturday’s very brief statement the Chairman issued a fuller statement in which he thanked SK and CB for their efforts and which included this passage :-

“We have been successful over the past three years under the stewardship of Steve Kittrick, reaching three cup finals, reaching the play-offs and having a promotion in our first season back home in Scarborough.Chairman Trevor Bull wished to put on record; Steve has instigated some fantastic times at the football club. I want to thank Steve and Chris for all they have done for Scarborough Athletic.Since the end of 2018 our form hasn’t been great and we have decided that we want to move the club in a different direction next season and we want to start making preparations for 2019/20.”

A football fan landing from Mars and reading that could be excused for thinking that SK had done a very good job over 3.5 years and that he had been sacked because “Since the end of 2018 our form hasn’t been great “ (12 weeks) and we have decided that we want to move the club in a different direction “

The obvious 2 questions which come to my mind are :-

- just what direction do the Board have in mind after 3 seasons of continuous upward travel

- what might a prospective new manager think about his potential new employers if they admit that 12 weeks of form that “ hasn’t been great” after 3 seasons of constant improvement and success brings the sack

As I said at the beginning I think there’s more to this than we currently know

The different direction could be using younger more local lads.

SK as people may know didn’t utilise the local talent in the area as much,
maybe this could be that different direction?

Als could be use less contracted players, as it looks like it may have
cost us more from dealings with Leon Scott and may of caused fractions
between contracted players and non contracted players.

That two options of going in a different direction.

I think that’s a fair post, albeit I didn’t see too many questions when SK wanted to take a different direction when he got rid of Mark Hume back in January. Nobody seemed to ask what direction he wanted to take…………… and at that point we were in a downward spiral, and matters don’t seem to have taken a better turn for that decision.

From a shaky start, SK has generally done well. Having had a great start to the 2017/18 season, the Board decided to back him, and granted further funds for, what may be described as a marquee signing (Walshaw). That ‘gamble’ worked with us gaining promotion - but the resulting cost increase can be seen in those Audited Accounts. That new wage structure was presumably the starting point for finances this year, and given comments in his interviews, we appear to have more players contracted than ever before.

What’s to say that, given a fantastic (and unexpected) start to this season, the Board haven’t done the same again? We’ve signed more and more players, albeit a) personally speaking, with one exception, I don’t believe the team has been improved and b) they all seem VERY similar (positionally and style).

For my money, from the position we were in at the end of October, we appear to have wasted an opportunity. Signings haven’t been great, results have been poor, and the style of play confusing at best. You can start to see that with Saturday’s crowd too. 300 down from where we’ve been at say average £7 net per person is 2 grand short……………… plus bar takings, programmes, food etc etc. If chatter is anything to go by, the Manager is on a fair wedge - and like someone posted the other day, has assistants coming out of his ears. The question for me to answer then, is ‘am I getting value for money?’

As far as I’m concerned the answer is NO (was I ever??) and so I am fully supportive of the Board’s ‘different direction’. If that means bringing through some youth (and a good number of you have waxed lyrical about the style of play of the youngsters we have), or cutting out some of the hangers on / deadwood, then so be it.

I think it needs freshening up.- and a change of Manager the start of that process.

You may well be right that there is more to this than meets the eye (there often is, the Board will be closer to the players than most on here) but I wouldn’t read to much into the Chairman’s comments, they’re fairly standard and he isn’t going to say we’ve sacked him because we think…..etc etc. The MUFC board said something similar about Jose…bet you a lot of money the official statement is nothing close to what they were actually thinking.

We seem a bit defensive of our ex manager here - and that doesn’t sit well with me.

About a month back I asked on here what had changed since SK chucked Mark Hume under the bus for a ‘different direction’. Not one of you answered (apart from Geoff as I’d opened up an angle for him to discuss the latest performance). Seems to me that you are more concerned with asking the Chairman about his ‘different direction’ than you were the ex Manager about his change of direction. And that’s not on.

We’ve got players on contract, who he now has sat in the stand. Players WE are paying for, whether they get a game or not. Are they putting any more effort in now they have a contract? And he presumably wanted to hand those contracts out - so now I’m questioning his judgement. Managers will always want more money, because that is their get out clause - not the fact they couldn’t get the best from their resources.

If someone can get a better tune out of the same players, then good on them. If that person can get better value for money with the same or lower budget even better. BUT, I don’t care if its an excuse or not, if we have a new direction or not, Trevor and the Board have made a call for the better of this club. End of!

It would just be interesting to know what the “different direction” is, wouldn’t it? Kittricks different direction was to get rid of Hume and bring back his old assistant - it wasn’t difficult to work that one out :)

The chairman’s new direction is to get rid of the manager and his assistant and bring somebody new in. Not hard to work that out either - so let’s move on and stop looking for hidden meanings behind this decision 😄

Will keep out of any discussions about managers etc but don’t think any new manager would need to make any overly dramatic changes to the actual squad as with a bit of tweaking there is potentially still the basis of a more than decent team. Just my opinion.

If you’ve got 3 players of a higher standard and the rest are about at their level I’d say you shouldn’t be far away from being successful Geoff (not forgetting players of a higher standard usually cost more so we can’t realistically expect to have a team full of higher level players).

On the face of it its harsh given the previous two years but, the current state of affairs would seem to justify the decision, the football on offer is pretty appalling at the moment, the team selection would appear to be done by putting all the squad in a hat and pulling 11 names out, a team with no obvious shape, no width and the most creative players left out completely, I don’t believe the play offs is realistic now so just hope someone can give us a structure to play more attractive football and perhaps give some of our youngsters a sniff at getting into the first team. add too that one of our lowest attendances of the season yesterday the correct decision.

Though it isn’t the decision I would have taken, the board are in the strongest position to make it. I haven’t seen enough of us of late to comment to too great an extent, but we certainly seem to have lost our way for sure.

For my part, I’d like to echo the words of others in setting out my thanks to Steve for all his hard work and to recognise his achievements. The upward trajectory has been significant - from escaping relegation, to a playoff appearance, automatic promotion and now sitting in playoff contention. That’s serious progress in three and a bit years. Throw in three cup finals and a great cup run, it’s been a real adventure. So, thanks Steve, let’s hope our paths cross again with both having been successful.

Fully agree Tree. My only gripe has been some team selection issues for a while now but also accept that we don’t know what has been going on in the background and in training.

I have always made myself a promise not to publicly name any player on here that I am not happy with but I am going to partly exempt myself from that promise as we have had a certain midfielder for some time now who would not even get on the bench in my team selection (well maybe). In all the time I have seen him, & that is all home games, he has only had one good game with the rest just winding us up. I think yesterday he made 1 (ONE) decent pass with the other 95% going astray or having the ball taken from him. I get the ‘keep it cool - keep possession’ thing & so passing back is not always a bad thing but with this player you can see it is the first thing on his mind and it infuriates the fans especially when he has the time to turn & move forward to create something upfront. Many goals from either side often come from quick breakaways before the defences get time to settle but this guy is so slow we rarely get this chance.

I am grateful to SK for all he has done and thank him & sorry it has ended like this. I am also sorry to see Chris Bolder go as he seemed a good inspiration & feel he had the respect of the players and fans. Best wishes to you both.

I do believe the team he had at Gainsborough was a more attractive side than us and had some winners in their team. But given the circumstances I believe we need to look to next year and yes only 4 points behind but possibly well below the level really required.. let’s not rush and see what we can attract.. I personally think the whole team could do with a freshen up which means many of the favourites shown the door.

A victim of his own success - if we’d spent the season just outside the playoffs in our first year at this level it would’ve been fine really, but to be top earlier on and then have a slump to being 4 points outside the playoffs it makes it look like a bad season

And the sacking off was a smoke screen.. very tactful.. early December was the start of the rot, the odd win covered up the issues. Hume was just unlucky and was easily blamed. There was no other direction.

At least it’s £650 back on the weekly playing budget unless we were naive enough to put him on a contract. In which case we’re screwed

Kittrick sacked - Perspective needed by BoroNo7 User: BoroNo7

Enoch Powell once said “All political careers ultimately end in failure” …and I would add… “ and all football managers too”

I’m not sure about current relationships within the team and Club as a whole . Promotion always brings with it the need to improve and strengthen the team but SK’s attempts to do this appear not to have been too successful and performances since the autumn have been on the decline .To me the team now seems to have lost its way and lacks structure and self-belief.

However I think we owe SK our thanks for a successful 3.5 seasons and some memorable times along the way. We should remember that when he arrived we were on the verge of relegation back to the NCEL and he now leaves us dis-satisfied with being 6th in the Evo-Stik Premier

There have been some suggestions on here that we have financial problems, I’ve no idea if this is so.However I have been unconvinced that a team operating at our level needs a manager,assistant manager and 1st team coach - it is not clear to me watching from the stands that the Asst Manager and 1st team Coach roles are clearly defined and I’d urge the Board to reflect on this before making any new appointments - for reasons of both operational clarity and financial value for money.

Looking back to Aug 2017 a top 8 finish this season would represent good progress , we need to keep a sense of perspective and re-structure both on and off the field ready for a good push for promotion in season 19/20 - but we don’t have a divine right to expect this !

Too much player power by Derek Abbey’s barnet

When there are players on £500 per week dictating when they will (& more importantly won’t) play, it’s a mess. I appreciate it’s a long way from South Yorkshire (for instance) but the techtonic plates haven’t moved recently, so it’s the same travel time that it was when we were winning

Who are you suggesting earns £500 a week and chooses whether they play or not? I didn’t much care for Mr Kittrick’s style of play or his tactics, so his departure hasn’t upset me that much. Regardless, I would never believe that he would ever allow any player to ‘dictate’ anything to him, let alone whether they play or not. I have also never heard a player say coming to Scarborough is too far. Please name names.
