It would appear that our old gaffer Andy Morrell has been appointed as manager at Hednesford. A real good bloke, Wish him well

Absolutely. I'll wander down the hill one midweek night when this is all over and have a look at them I think.

Best of luck. Good manager and a thoroughly nice bloke too.

Hope he’s allowed time to do a good job. Enjoyed the “buzz” around the club, whilst he was at Tamworth. Sure hw will want to impress without the player manager tag and I wish him well after we have gained promotion

Too much according to some

Played a massive part in where we are as a club now - academy set up. 
4G pitch - and boy are we are going to need the revenue that brings 
Had a good team too which only stagnated when we failed to sort out deals for likes of Newton and Belshaw

Yeah deals for top players wouldn’t have made much difference to those two. Both had ambitions for full time football which clearly Tamworth could not offer. Where did the clamour to sack Andy come from, it was clearly short sighted and reactionary. Where might we be now if the powers that be had thought differently. Some talk about ‘hoof ball’ which we clearly don’t see anymore at our level.

He let Reece Styche go and did nothing to replace him for 3 months.He then signed Zak Kotwici who was completely useless.

Don't want to start up another Morrell debate particularly but the bloke also signed Belshaw, Burns, Newton et al.

Managers make good signings and bad so we won't get agreement on here but there's a good few of us who don't think we'd ever have ended up in this league if he'd stayed

Agreed. Don't think we would have gone down under Morell but I feel He'd run out of ideas. We never got to the play-offs under him and we had started to stagnate. He probably needed a break.He did,however,bring the club into the modern era with the academy etc. and we owe him an enormous amount of gratitude for that.

I also think people forget how hard that level was. The last year he was there you had Salford and Harrogate flinging money at that league, massive clubs like York and Stockport in it, the previous year Fylde had cruised it.

Expecting to get in the play offs on the budget we had was always way too optimistic and if we were to get promoted, we wouldn't be even challenging for the play offs without a total revamp of the squad.

Genuinely hope he does well at Hednesford as many have said, he's a genuinely nice bloke too.

He may have to wait a year for his first match if the current thinking on social distancing comes true.

You might be right there. It certainly doesn't look like being soon does it?

There looks a perfect storm coming where we all end up back at work and doing the bits of life that are mundane without being able to go football/cinema/comedy/gigs/meal out/going on holiday that we all enjoy.

Will be worse for mental health than the lockdown if that comes to pass.

Squad building will be a nightmare if there's a prospect that next season might not take place.If there's a years break all the part-time players will be overweight and unfit. Also a number of clubs won't exist.

It's @ bit on the other thread this but I had a muse about the national League deliberations on there.

I'm not sure non league football can work before social distancing ends is my sad conclusion.

Reece Styche the most disloyal footballer on the planet, left us for a better offer only to end up at Bromsgrove. Styche is a one man band, not the sort of player usually tolerated at the Lamb. Durrell was a very useful player yet his individualism was despised by some. Pleased to see AM let him go as his ego would not have benefitted the club long term. As for signing a replacement, timing is everything and Styche’s transfer demand was not timed to benefit Tamworth.
With hindsight the decision to axe AM put a stop to the progress made up to that point. Gambling on a player with Styches history was always going to rebound
