Emergency board meeting tomorrow do you think?

If they have been caught on the hoof by this universal opposition, God help us.

If Neilson can bring some experience into the squad this coming week and we beat Coventry then he will have bought some more time. Fail to do either and the end is nigh.

If he goes or stays we need another left back and if he goes bring back Lewie if possible.

The person I feel for most in all this is Winkie, he did what so many people were crying out for when he sacked Robbo, he loves MK Dons, he loves the club and he loves the fans, but sadly, like all chairman, he knows f**k all about football. He was only trying to please and do what he felt was best for everyone. He's given Neilson the biggest budget in the history of our club and whatever the remainder of this season brings, he (Neilson) has failed miserably!

The person who made this bed is Pete himself, and I’m sure he’d accept that this has been an important (and very painful) learning opportunity.

Ha ha, nothing to do with the Robbo out brigade then. Funny, the majority of our hardcore loved Robbo and what he did for the club, the fans and the City. At least this time the sacking is justified!

I didn't mean his sacking, I meant choosing RN in the first place. Trying to replicate Robbo but with physicality? I'm sure Pete will have a better idea of how his supposed expectations (passing style retained but with a plan b) turned into such a mess.

1-1 between Robbo out and Robbie out factions I'd say.

Feel for everyone in this sad, sorry state of affairs. We're all losers in every sense.

There was a lot of sense in the signing and I could see what Robbie was trying to do, but in the end he wasn't able to do it and he didn't seem to have the answer of how to get us out of this mess (except leaving our best player on the bench). Hopefully we will have a shortlist of two, Mark Warburton and Simon Grayson. My money is on Mark Warburton. P.S. I hope Pete has a decent no fault break clause in the manager 'contracts.

Mark Warburton has a pattern of break ups with owners.

A good example of people focusing on the potential upsides and minimising potential downsides in the decisions. I'm guessing that was at play when RN was picked above other candidates.

Grayson would be great but would he move south?

I here what you say about Warburton, but without knowing the facts I won't comment. In regards to Simon Grayson moving south, he might commute. I know it's a long distance but Sean Dyche commutes from Northampton to Burnley.
