Gannon Will Have To Go

After the astonishing scenes following our 3-0 defeat at Accrington Stanley surely Jim Gannon's short, and utterly horrific spell as Manager will be terminated one way or another. His shocking impact on the team can no longer be tolerated, and if The Board don't have the balls to do the right thing (and let's face it there's nothing to suggest they will), then Gannon must fall on his own sword.
What an unsavoury, repulsive character Jim Gannon truly is. His conceit and startling arrogance beggars belief. Since arriving at Vale Park in January he has single-handedly dismantled all belief and confidence from the squad, turning us from a side heading towards automatic promotion into one staggering incoherently for a mid-table finish. Along the way he has alienated and humiliated Coaching staff and players. We have become an embarrassing shambles, and it has to end now.
His formations and tactics have been a joke pretty much from day one, but yesterday at Accrington Stanley it went well beyond that. Key players dropped from the squad, an unsurprisingly abysmal performance - the players clearly can't stand him either - all resulting in Gannon having to be placed in a 'secure area' after the game for his own protection. I've followed Vale for 36 years now, and never have I witnessed so much seething hatred aimed at a Manager from the Faithful. Not even Dean Glover. All around me it was raging.
Rumours are now circulating that Gannon may well announce he's leaving tomorrow, let's all pray that this is true.
