Was told on Monday that contract not renewed.

Think he has acted honourably by keeping it quiet until after last night's match.

I think he should have been given another season, with an objective to do better than this year & if not achieved then given the push

I AGREE WITH JOHNNO IF ANY OF US WHO HAD JUST BEEN KICKED OUT AT WORK WITHOUT BEEN TOLD TO PULL OUR SOCKS UP WE WOULD HAVE HAD THE UNION ON TO THEM RIGHT AWAY.IMO IF THE BOD HAD GIVEN HIM MONEY TO SPEND I THINK HE WOULD HAVE GOT US A GREAT TEAM,BECAUSE I THINK HE HAS DONE A GREAT JOB ,YOU CAN NOT MAKE A SILK PURSE OUT OF A PIGS EAR . ALL THE BES.T TO DR WHEREVER HE GOES

Could  you  imagine  that...........  We  get  to  the  GF  and  actually  win  it.  I  know  its  a  long  shot  but  it  would  be  funny  to  see  the  BOD's  response.

Even  if they  held  out  the  olive  branch  and  offered  him  a  contact  there  would  be  more  than  a  few  SL  clubs interested  in his  services ;D

From what have seen and heard the BOD are the same as 90% of the fans, they have know idea at all. The lack of a crowd shows how fickle the Haven fans are. They only like to back a team when its winning and want the coach and players sacked the second they lose a game or two. Haven has just spent the last three years building with a new coach and is about to lose some of the older experience players and get a new coach. Mark my words, Haven will be lucky not to be wooden spooners next year and there will be no one but Haven BOD and supporters  to blame.
If Haven continues with its reputation{i am not talking player or coach reputation!} like it is, it will take a lot more money to entice quality  players and coaches here.
If people hated the last three years, there in for a nasty shock the next three.

Get behind the lads! Go Haven!
