The sinking Stags’ ship needs to be stopped…and quickly


by Stephen Thirkill

Well it had to happen didn’t it? Billy McEwan had lost his players, he’d certainly lost the fans, and now he’s lost the dressing room.

Under McEwan’s leadership Mansfield Town were playing with no belief, you could almost say no ability, and couldn’t buy a win for love nor money.

Sadly they were drifting aimlessly in the league. Actually that’s a lie, they were drifting somewhere and that was to a second successive relegation and the lowly depths of Blue Square North football.

Andy Perry and the board have made a very tough decision, they have made the right call and it’s a decision they deserve a lot of credit for.

The sinking Stags’ ship needs to be stopped…and quickly.

They now have three men at the helm of the club with the vision, ideas and determination to drive this once proud club back into the Football League.

But it will be a long hard road back. Stags have been used and abused for far too long under the previous Haslam regime.

It takes time to turn an oil tanker …and it is the same for Mansfield Town.

The fans need to give the board time to show what they can do and the players also need to give those loyal supporters some Christmas cheer with a few wins.

Perry and co now need to get the right man in charge of the team as the first part of their Mansfield Town rebuild.
