No-one could have done any better than Reid during the last 15 months. If it wasn't for the shambles behind the scenes he would have kept us in L1, Administration put paid to that. He has had all (almost all) of his best players sold from under him and been unable to adequately replace them. We have replaced a team of underachievers, with a team of near pre-pubescent's. He was ham strung before he started and has continued to be undermined by the shambles of an admin process. Brenda should hang his head, Ridsdale should hang his head, the previous board should collectively hang their heads. Hopefully Brent will see the good that has been done by Peter Reid and have a word about biding his time and completing the project once he takes over. He deserves the chance to continue this.
I've never been so ashamed to be an argyle fan.
Reid is a Legend.
Could not disagree more. Should have kept us up last season regardless of administration, for a start for the first few weeks he wouldn't even play BWP, had we of not started so badly we would have stayed up even after the ten point deduction. He is a great guy but a manager in 2011 no way, far too many mistakes made, for instance why did he keep dropping Ro? and he did it constantly last year as well. the fact is he had to stay at us because no one else would give him a job. Just you wait to see if anyone offers him a job now. He couldn't get a job previously so he had to go to Thailand......
Don't disguise nice guys with competent managers. He had moderate success at Sunderland in the mid 1990s, a long time ago. Would you want Howard Wilkinson as manager because he won the league in 1992??
