Maybe folk are jumping the gun or at least i hope they are. I always thought watson would leave to go to a league 2 club or a bigger national league club but despite the current regime at gateshead he’s dropping down a division to a club which sack managers once every 6 months and if it went wrong at york which seems to happen under every manager these days im sure he would get more stick than from 1 guy on twitter. Would sure be a bizare move. Only thing i can think of is money been a motivating factor but even that would surprise me as watson knew situation at gateshead and still stayed on and has given 110%. I think watson been forced out is a bit of a conspiracy theory, surely no owners are that daft
Disaster really. SW needs secure employment and I’m sure his salary will increase at York. It may be the owners actions have made the decision easier (we don’t know for sure) but if I were him the crowd on Tuesday would also make me think I was on a hiding to nothing. There’s a lot of negativity around when, if I were him, i’d think there should be great atmosphere all around the club. I’d put Clarkie in as manager and make sure we keep the current squad which might be a big problem for the likes of Olley, Kerr and White.
