But it’s this apathy from fans and seemingly acceptance of failure that Kr will read as people being behind him. The man is deluded remember.Have you actually read this thread? No-one is happy, some less so than others, but KR is going nowhere, at least not yet.
Speaking personally, I don’t think anybody should support him. I think they should support the players, who in turn determine the fate of the club. Those are two very different things, in my opinion. I think the guy should be essentially ignored and wafted away like a bad smell every time he opens his mouth. I don’t think he should be cheered or booed, but rather treated as though he isn’t even there. Maybe that way he’d stop talking such drivel, because nobody would be listening and therefore nobody would care, which would mean he could just get on with putting a team out which the rest of us could then cheer for almost in spite of him. He’s caused such an almighty and humiliatingly grave mess that it has left me so angry I can’t actually bring myself to have a go at him anymore. Or rather not right now. But don’t think for one second that there are many people saying HE should be supported personally. One or two might still back him, incredibly, but the overwhelming majority of fans will be saying it’s the team who need to be encouraged, and that baying for his blood is unlikely to help them for what’s left of this season.But it’s this apathy from fans and seemingly acceptance of failure that Kr will read as people being behind him.

It’s all about having the guts to do something about it, being pro active, just as Rochdale and others have done. With too many fans it’s, “Oh dear never mind, 9 games left, try again next time, we still support you Mr Robinson.”
In 35 years of following Oxford, he is the worst manager I feel we have had. Yes there was Patterson and kemp, but you knew those clowns had an expiry date.
I fear it’s this apathy from some of “support him until the end of the season” fans that will be as much to blame for any relegation, as the joke that is Kr himself.
KR lost his first game in charge of usTotally agree with you ryaniobirdio, but if anyone can do a better job wouldn’t it be better to get anyone in to try and keep us up?, tiger is as much of a waste of space as kr but no one knows how the next games are going to go, Rochdale sacked their manager as did Bradford in the last fortnight and both won at the weekend, I’m not saying it’s a proven method but we are back in the st again and doing nothing makes it seem like we are accepting this st.
I have not once changed my mind on him even after a couple of wins, draws or defeats. I do accept that some of our fans, are jumping from keeping him to removing him based on a single positive or negative result.You won't get many excuses, but you might get a few more rational observations.
This just proves football is a game of fine margins. Two wins in a row and most posters on here were in good spirits. A minute away from a creditable point at Gillingham which would have kept everyone reasonably happy, then a lapse in defence and we're back in the relegation zone.
I don't think Robinson has proved himself capable of a promotion push next season, even if he was given money to spend, but he's going nowhere as Tiger is still in love, so we're rather stuck with him.
On to Rochdale. If we fail there then maybe abject pessimism would be more appropriate.
Yes, he’s a very poor manager but nothing he has done this season has remotely suggested he might be a good coach, let alone an exceptional one.I have not once changed my mind on him even after a couple of wins, draws or defeats. I do accept that some of our fans, are jumping from keeping him to removing him based on a single positive or negative result.
He could win the next four games and I still want him out.
For a man who proudly and calmly away from matchday interviews conducts himself relatively coherently and insists he is man who never offers excuses he acts in the polar opposite for the rest of the time. For a guy who infered the fans won't break or come between his 'bond/close relationship' with Tiger he has a delusional view of himself. He is disingenuous in the media and when talking about his players.
Following the disgraceful behaviour and antics around Gavin Whyte and his call-up to his country which shamed our football club, he now has demanded an official be sacked. Let alone the constant unprofessional digs towards other officials. Derry and Robinson are one removed from Evans and Rayner IMO.
He might be an exceptional coach but he's an awful football manager. But don't worry, we're one win away from 13th..................and those who jump about can say they've been proved right that we were right to stick with him. This is now the current PR line. Desperate.
Tiger will get what he deserves with Robinson in charge.
