    Is Sturrock the man for the job?

    I've heard plenty of discussion about whether we need a change of manager but can we do better than Sturrock? The chance of a timely "new manager boost" and the usual upturn in fortunes that accompany it would be lifesaving but would it be better in the long term?

    • no way sturrock is de man

    • Now Paul Sturrock has secured our championship status, he deserves all the praise possible. Not only did he turn our fortunes around whilst in League 1, he has done it again by saving us from relegation. Now if the chairman can get his cheque book out we can build upon this seasons success

    • of course he is he has done a fantastic job i cant even believe you can consider sacking him

    • Sack Sturrock, are you stark raving mad??

      He got us promoted in his first season in charge and survival in this division was always the aim, if he manages that then he has had another great season.

      • Personnal I'm behind Sturrock all the way. I just remember a while back hearing a couple people saying he should go. Apparently they thought he lacked the experience at this level. In my opinion he's an excellent manager who has succeeded so far. Fingers crossed we can avoid relegation this season and then build on it.

        My only concern is Sturrock seems to look to previous teams for new transfer targets, e.g. Southampton (Folly, Best, Kenwyn-Jones) and Plymouth (Adams) etc. I'm sure that this is down to the finances and not wanting to take a risk on someone. After all he has far more in-depth knowledge about these players after working with them day-to-day.

        An experienced back-up keeper is a priority too, hmmm.... what's the name of that keeper at St. Mary's? Smith? Poke? Bialkowski?

        Time will tell!

    • Sturrock is the man for the job. No real money to spend. But he has the nouse in the transfer market to bring players of good quality on loan. Once our luck changes with injuries we will becvome a force in the championship. Steve MacLean when fully fit is worth another 10 to 15 points a season. Wednesday fans need to show the country how patient we are as fans. Lets give Sturrock the time he needs to build a side worthy of the the blue and white stripes. I suggest he should try and bring Chris Waddle out of rtirement. What a legend.

    • No - Sturrock is the manager for the job, Sacking him would be a knee jerk reaction and bad for us in the long term. He's the best manager we've had in years I reckon - without him we'd be struggling in League One. We need him.
