Should have been done months ago, but happy Way's finally gone. Neale Marmon who has only been part of the coaching team for a few months will be caretaker. Its a last throw of the dice for us and needed to be done, and gives the fans a massive lift heading into the Newport game. His two year contract extension was an absolute joke, and rumours were that it was a sticking point for the takeover with neither side wanting to pay it off.

It is a shame how its gone for Way, he was a legend as a player but as a manager he has been a disaster.

See Port Vale

Dean Glover
Neil Aspin

Unfortunately great club legends do not necessarily make good managers .
Could be the shot in the arm you need .

Can understand the Glover’s fans thinking anyone’s better than Way, but Neale Marmon seems quite inexperienced in management. It will be interesting to see if he’s able to make any impact.

Micky Mellon is the opposite to the Vale and Yeovil ex-players managing. He divided opinion as a player, but popular in his management role.

We’ve now essentially gone for the Vale legends son instead of the legend themselves!

I would love to see Jerry Gill at Bath City come in as our next manager. He's done an amazing job there and played for us so knows the club. Has lots of contacts from his time at Birmingham.
Was in the frame for our job and I think any League 2 team could do a lot worse.

Top bloke as well.

Finally Way has gone. What an awful manager, he always comes across such a pr*ck.

I see Darrell Clarke is linked with Yeovil job, that would be a hell of a signing if they pulled that off. Can't see it though
