Look at that face. Who could be mad at him? All relaxed in his jumper.
There’s no denying the mitigating circumstances. There’s no denying the endless nonsense we have to put up with from those in charge. There’s no denying that no matter how bad we’ve been this season, we’ve also fallen on the harsh side of a lot of luck.
But is that enough to keep Thorn from blame?
Has Andy Thorn’s own performance contributed to our demise? Is he doing the best job possible with the players he has? Or has he just been incredibly unlucky?
The mixed perspectives continue to divide the fans. We’re all pretty united in our condemnation of the squad he’s been left to work with, and apparent lack of backing from those darn management types. A supportive “Andy Thorn” chant will still, even now, get an outing at most games.
Yet, online, it’s a different story. You only have to look at the message boards, and they’re awash with criticism focused heavily at our crimson-faced leader.
Now seems like a good point to ask this question. I realise there have been similar polls recently, but as I have a far smaller readership, I’d quite like to gather your thoughts away from the hustle and bustle of the big sites.
In the interest of forcing an opinion, I shan’t make it any more complex than a simple yes/no. If you have a view either way, do vote. I’m genuinely interested in what you’re all thinking.
