Westley isn't adequate enough to achieve what that team needs in my opinion. Stevenage have achieved just as much as he would have done by staying, so they haven't suffered, but the wholesale clearout he has intended is partly down to his training ethics alienating people and that is something he should have looked at, because new players could make out as if it's okay to be trained more frequently than many managers would do, but if those players struggle to adapt to the physical axcesses placed on them, there could be more dissention from of them, when a meeting of minds between Westley and his players does not happen point blank, because Westley may expect to be given alll that extra effort without recourse from anyone.
Westley needs to look at why his players underfperformed. His tactics, his mentality towards them, or simply the excesses placed on them. Yes he did the same to the Stevenage players, but he seems ot be someone who isn't very adaptable and comes across when talking about his players as if, the Stevenage way is a blueprint for success, get used to it, but his time so far has been less than fruitful and he needs to reassess his approach to Preston, because Stevenage were a team on the up and bouant, plying like every match was a cup final.
Preston are a team on a potentially downard spiral, who could end up like Bradford if they are not careful and are a team struggling to cope with the financial fallout from a lack of championship football revenues.
As for Buchanan, that does dissapoint me, becasue after being given a fans award and quoting it as a reason to sign, he then shuns the club and seemingly all those people who voted for him.
A bit like your serving local MP who you voted for switching parties, so you feel your vote has been undervalued or even abused to a small extent.
I wish him well, but the main thing is Bakayogo is still present and can play the role and Les proved the quality is around for League 2 standard wages, so Ronnie should be able to replace Buchanan, without too much of an issue.
2nd attempt-I'm sorry but I disagree with virtually all this post.
