Have your say

HARTLEPOOL United fans have been quick to have their say following the sacking of Paul Murray after the FA Cup defeat to Blyth.

Murray - who had only been in charge for 45 days - was dismissed following the 2-1 defeat on Friday night at Victoria Park which saw Pools dumped out of the cup by the non-league side.

The league form has also been desperate and Pools remain bottom of the Football League, six points adrift of safety with just 12 points from 19 matches.

Some supporters say they are embarrassed with events at their club, others have hit out at the owners but some have welcomed the sacking of Murray and assistant boss Willie Donachie.

@RichMennearJP the board, IOR and hodcroft are slowly destroying the club from within with no signs of this decline halting #TerraceTweets

Martin Harvey @martrv69

@RichMennearJP proves IOR recruitment policy a shambles ! Ken needs to engage with fans not run club by veiled threats. #embarrasing

Charlotte. @_CharlJenkins

@RichMennearJP gutted to see the state the club is in, it’s that simple

Joe Bolwell @jb4pools

@RichMennearJP bloody hell, what a weekend. Leaves me speechless! They didn’t last long. We’re becoming a laughing stock. Big Sam in again

Howard grist @howardgrist87

@RichMennearJP pay peanuts u get monkeys from management to players

Liam Reid @ltreidy67

@RichMennearJP Murray was a poor appointment but he is the least of the problems. Those overseeing Pools’ terminal decline are.

Tom Harrison @TomHarrison92

@RichMennearJP Doesn’t matter who is is in charge as long as IOR are here, just another lamb to the slaughter

Jo Grylls @jlg_jo

@RichMennearJP for the first time ever I am embarrassed to be a poolie!

Peo @hpoolneil

@RichMennearJP over the moon, wrong appointment from the start, now it’s the most important in the club’s history#noexcuses

Andy Braithwaite @Blueorder72

@RichMennearJP fans need to realise that without replacement for IOR we’d be in the Northern Lge like Darlo get behind players & stop crying
