Learning curve after the utter shambles of the last managerial appointment both in time taken to appoint and the quality of the candidate with a proven track record which ultimately led to our relegation,
I would expect Johnson to get a lot more out of our players and of course there is a lot of time to still turn things around this season.
The first to present his case seems right, till another comes forward and questions him.
Old Clive's done good! An unexpected and speedy appointment.
I'm so war weary these days that I find it difficult to get to carried away with whatever positive news comes out of the club. The appointment can only be described as "As good as we could have possibly hoped for" but he is at the tail end of a successful career and has had recent health issues. You have to reserve judgement even with this appointment but I do now see a glimmer of hope that things may turn around for our club thats been stuck in a cycle of failure and demise for far to long. I wish Gary Owers good health and happiness but he was never going to find an answer to the same problems that plagued us last season. This wasn't a time to gamble again on another ex player or unproven manager and fortunately, I hope, for us Its fallen into place that he became available when he did.
Gary Johnson has proved countless times that he knows how to create a winning side - lets hope he can do it one more time.
Some very complementary comments on the Cheltenham Town Robins Nest forum. Encouraging to read for a man that's just been sacked. Worth a read.
At last the club seems to be showing some ambition. Looks like a great appointment...hopefully this will be a turning point in the club's history. Looking forward to the next few weeks...haven't said that for a while! Welcome Gary and the best of luck.
Over the moon with this appointment was nicely surprised when got in from work to see this, not only great for our club he has a proven track record and am sure this where we start climbing that league Also sure he still has great contacts to bring players in Best news have had in a long toIme bout our great club am feeling so positive bout this now welcome gaffer to our club
