Gary Owers

I have read that Owers has won only 18% of the games that he has managed, not very inspiring if true.
From now until the end of the season it needs to be closer to 50% if we hope to avoid relegation.

If you're playing the percentage game on what you read, it's 18% better than what he inherited before he became manager

Staggeringly unimpressive return none the less.
I am sure someone has already done the research ,but what is the win percentage over all the games since he has been in charge ?

Think the most positive stat would be to score 0.2380952381 more points on average per game than the two teams above us to put us above them at the final whistle on the final game . That's assuming the the goal difference increase by 0.2857142857 per game if it turns out we are level on points and also assuming the teams below also do not have a better points per game average of 0.3571428571.

Andy Hessenthaler is a tough old boot, been around for years on the Kent football scene, I wouldn't worry too much about facing Eastleigh because of him, his record wasn't great when he went back to Gillingham.

I've heard through the grapevine today that the reason for the delay in us appointing Owers was down to the compensation package offered to Bath. Fatty Harrop is rumoured to have spunked £10,000 to get his man and despite the backing he's received he is failing miserably.

Apparently the portly one is supposed to have likened him to a racehorse and stated that he'll come good.

Harrop, he's an injured carthorse, not a racehorse and instead of trying to justify your outlay, shoot him and put him out of his misery!!

If true and £10,000 to get him.......what a waste of money.

As I have said before.....where are his contacts for recruitment ?
what has he brought to the club ?
what is his % ratio after today ?
If Owers was the best available.....anybody here have any idea who the other candidates were ???????

The words are reported to have come out of his mouth today by someone I trust implicitly but as I wasn't there people can choose whether to believe it or not, I'm not reporting it as fact.

I have the feeling that any other decent candidates chose not to come.

Having spoken to him after the game Owers is a decent bloke who cares about his team. Give him a break, he's trying his best in a situation even the most able manager would find difficult.
