Can we afford a pay-off and who takes over?

Can we afford a pay-off and who takes over?

'Paul Hart will carry on in his job as we would struggle to pay him off as well as struggle to find someone that would take over from him', not my vote, yours - although these findings from pompeyrug's poll are thoughts that I tend to agree with to be honest, to a point...

Clearly 'if' we did get rid of Hart we would have to pay-up his, what 2-year plus contract, which would not be that cheap but I would also imagine that it would not be that much either as we would not have taken him on if he was an overly 'expensive option' would we?

As for someone taking over, again clearly there would be someone out there - just finding someone that would not be asking the earth wages wise and be expecting an endless fund would be tough, but again this is possible and there would be someone that would come in and want to come in.

I have previously said I that I do feel for him and at the end of the day we have to be thankful that he stepped into the breach when we were in a complete and utter shambles, more so! Who else would have done that? But that said we really cannot afford to keep persevering with him indefinitely and you have to put a 'limit' on how much you take.

Again as previously mentioned recently, no matter what his faults are and what we blame him for you cannot account for the individual mistakes that people make - that cannot be his fault as he is not the one out on the pitch playing. That said I still think that we are good enough to stay up, but I am struggling to believe that Hart can be the man to work these players to do this...

I hope I am wrong, and want to be wrong as I do not want to see another manager sacked, is anyone getting a feeling of déjà vu from the late time Jamie's Dad left? Everton has to be the game that decides his fate though - lose that and he would surely have to go, right?

The thing that 'might' ultimately cost Hart his job could be his stubbornness! This stubbornness in his reluctance, or difficulty, to find an assistant that he would work with and take advice from and his reluctance to be more adventurous and/or make tactical changes sooner...

  • What the poll asked - (Without sounding negative) Will Hart last 'til Xmas?

  • How you voted - Dunno, how'd we pay him off & who'd take over? 44%, Xmas? He's out of his depth I give him 3-4 games! 40%, Yep and beyond, team will soon gel 12%, He's the boss so I back him regardless, simples! 4%

    Before we move on what are your thoughts on what the last poll concluded? You know what to do, thoughts below please guys...

    I just do not understand this guy, when you listen to his Interviews he seems resigned to both his and the clubs fate. How he can motivate a team of players astounds me! I personally think we do have a squad who could scrape enough points to survive as there are worser squads than ours. This will not happen with PH in charge though anf PS/SAF need to recognise this asap.

    I think the question should be 'Can we afford not to pay Hart off?'

    Hart tells us he's not concerned about losing his job; well thats a pack of lies, as obviously he is. In the picture above the proof is there for all to see...He's chewed his fingers off!!

    I still think Bilic can do a job for us in the Premiership - all this "we have no money" talk is a load of cobblers - come on Dr SAF dig deep and save our club!!

    I think he will still be around until the end of October. If we have not found 10 points by then then he will be replaced giving whoever comes in time to see what changes he needs to make in Jan.

    All is quiet again from SAF since the announcement of the 'in principle' funding. Blame PH all you want but the true stumbling block is SAF who took over with promises and 24 page documents, but in reality had nothing but hot air to give us.

    We can't afford any body else. WE CAN'T AFFORD ANYBODY ELSE. The more people keep blaming PH the more unsettling it is to the team and our club! Just support him and the team for as long as they are here, cos it's all we've got for the next 3 months! There is only one person to blame for this mess (well 2 if you count Gaydarkness) and that is the joke of a camel-herder we have inherited! Unfortunately, (and i wait with baited breath until after the PVA meeting) SAF has cocked up royally and has only helped in stretching XL shirts into XXL shirts !

    Paul Hart does mistakes, but if Belhadj and Ben-Haim were a bit more professional, things would have been different. We just need someone who can stabilise our defence. I think that we will stay up, and this is going to be simiar to last year: there are teams who oly collected 4-6 points so far, and they are obviously reachable.
