 I think people might feel sadder for Bass because it was obviously much more than a job for him.

 Massive thanks to Bassey for all good work he has done for the club and best wishes for the future.

25 years at Wimbledon.
 Love Bass but i also loved Galliers, Evans and most of all Sir Allen Batsford. Unfortunately without change we would not have enjoyed Jones, Fashanu and Bassett. Change happens and as long as there is no acrimony we move on. Dave Anderson and Terry Brown were moved on as part of our evolution but are still fiercely Wimbkedon. Good luck Bass and hope to see you around

 Wally is now in Cyprus but surely he could have had time for a few words on Bassey before he went

 [Link] Bassey leaves. No words from WAG which is disappointing to see

 And the attitude of both. Attitude counts for a lot in football, I suspect.

 Deji and Kwesi were far bigger disappointments last season than NA. I knew NA was struggling on upside. No such excuse for those two.

a bit like complaining about what Trotter and Soares especially, but also the entire squad, did (or were told to do). In the end, we saw an NA team, and a WAG team, in the same season - and the kind of player both managers wanted and utilised.
 Leddrede - if this season proved anything, it was the old adage "it's the hope that kills you". The vast majority of us wanted the best for NA, and our club, to do well, and find that form and chemistry we hit in Dec 2015 - but that was 2 1/2 years previously (at the time). I'd had enough of the tactics and football, but yes, we were still in L1 and the players he brought in, I honestly thought were a great squad. There were some that turned out to have "bad chemistry" - but WAG quarantined them, and got the rest playing like a team. He also was willing to "risk" the young homegrown talent. I didn't have enough faith in NA to have us top half, but I thought the squad was good enough to keep us comfortably up. NA hit his ceiling, was unable to change - or maybe comfortable enough that the FCB lulled him into a "comfortable space". Players need to push themselves, be questioned, press on, learn new things. So do managers. NA hit his ceiling the season before his last, as did TB (which the FCB admitted, but didn't learn from), DA got his timing right... The ending was soured, but that often happens, and NA took us as far as he could. Fair play to him. Onwards and upwards.

it will take me some time to get over the circumstances and timing of his departure, but NA is not to blame for that. Credit where credit's due, and blame likewise.
 If Ardley hadn't walked in November, we would be in league 2 now,the board got lucky,remember Erik's statement,?just before

 Ardley would have been sacked at the end of the 2014/15 season or during the 2017/18 season if our FCB had acted like most other clubs. A good chance we would be in L2 if this had happened.

 To be fair you could read similar things on other forums about other managers/boards/players/sick notes/tactics/hospitality etc
12th May 2019 14:08:00 
[86.lo.gg.ed] 
Maybe not the hospitality
 I feel quite sorry for him, really. Lovely chap. But reading the Notts County forums is depressing: all the criticisms that many of us had crop up there, too, which suggests he's still not learning from his experiences. Pretty sad, really.

 "We're going to double the average number of shots on target we have per match!" "Errr, Neal, that'd still only mean two per match."

 Think some believed Ardley was introducing a more attacking system,which he did in August, then lost his bottle.

 Leddrede I think that might prove a contentious one, overall the club has done well and upgraded every time (more or less), but FCB hanging onto the manager for dear life nearly cost us our league 1 place. Goal difference is the slenderest of margins. Hopefully the club will provide similar backing this summer to last summer.

 Interesting results in the WUP premonitions. 122 people entered and only 8 predicted relegation (including 1 piss-take from a Hereford fan). 9 predicted the play-offs. 80% predicted a higher finish than the previous season. Just shows that from this sample the Ardley should have been sacked at the end of last season people were in a small vocal minority.

Our FCB board has done a very good job with managerial decisions when compaired to most other clubs around us.
 It’s still the same Lyle Taylor he’s just playing with better players!! Charlton have loans from Arsenal, Chelsea, West Ham etc that says it all.

We need to up our game next season in the loan market, I trust with Wally and Glyn that will be possible 👍
 Sorry didn’t read back , thanks for that link Fleydon , wanted to show my son

 Just realised I was massively over optimistic, 15th with 60 points and hamstring as top scorer (although wonder how I thought we’d get 60 points with top scorer being sick note with 12)

 CW agreed. Plenty of occasions he’d chase back the length of the pitch to help defence and then chase back up the other end for an attack.
