Would be interesting to see Carl's win ratio as a manager.


To be fair he did have matt Cooper in goal! :whistle:

Failed the interview process unfortunately. I know he wanted it though.

Strange... :unsure:

How does Brian Pritchard interview for the job (he shouldn't of even had to do this!) and not get it - the mind boggles.

Harris and the board have dropped the ball here, big time.

Strange, lack-lustre appointment for me. Have we not learned from the 2 previous managers that were appointed?! i just simply cannot believe that Carl is a better appointment than Pritch - Pritch knows the club, knows our key players, understands what the fans want, and cares deeply about WAFC.

Who actually makes the decision? Is it a board vote? Is it Mark? Is there a selection panel? I really worry for us now, hope Carl proves me wrong...

Isn't it about time we interviewed for Harris' role? (Wait for the "this is what Harris has done for us" brigade to commence fire...!)

Can we confirm if this is the case, as everything i can find on the internet says it was Owen Brown who was manager when they were promoted to the Conf North and not Carl?

When will this club learn????? Yet another gamble for me. Very disappointed, just hope it pays off for everyone's sake.

I don't understand this at all!

OK you lot laugh at my expense but if Pritch hadn't have failed the interview process then he would have got the job for sure

Let's welcome the new manager and get behind him and hop he doesn't get the push after 10 games :whistle:

I'm not exactly blown away by the appointment, but obviously I wish him all the very best.

It makes me wonder whether the new manager told the interviewers of false achievements, it would appear that nobody has bothered to check!

I cannot believe that Pritch failed the interview ! more that Carl impressed more given the circumstances ! I am sure that Pritch was strongly considered He is that well respected at the club - Maybe it was too soon after His leaving the club ? I dont know that for sure just my conjecture, whatever We must get behind Carl if we want him to succeed surely, lets not make it even harder for Him. It would be really nice to see Pritch back at the club though in some role He has such passion and energy for the club.

I have got to say there seems to be a lot of negativity on here. Lets give the guy a warm welcome and plenty of support. I am sure that Mark Harris and the board found it a very difficult decision after interviewing their shortlist. And people who think they can do a better job of running the club well you are more than welcome to come in and invest a few grand here and there to keep the club afloat cos Im damn sure the current gates are not doing so. Do the maths.
It is time to move forward. All this negativity is green and white behaviour!! UTA
