Former Vale midfielder Ian Bogie replaces Darije Kalezic as manager of Stockport County.

So, ‘Bosnian Dave’ lasted 50 days in charge. We can now say that he was a terrible appointment and may have lost County their Conference Premier status. Is there time to turn things around?

Bogie was some fans favourite to succeed Gannon those few short weeks ago.

During Bogies five years as gaffer at Gateshead, he guided them to successive promotions in 2008 and 2009 from the Northern Premier League to the fifth tier of English football.

Impressive stuff.

He has agreed a contract at Stockport until the summer of 2014 and he faces promotion-chasing Newport on Saturday at Edgeley Park.

Well, I think this could be a very decent appointment – just wish it had been made a few weeks ago.

Can Bogie save us from the drop? No fault of his if we do lose that battle but we have a chance.

Being a County fan is not dull is it?

Good luck Ian – I am sure all County fans are behind you.

  • This bloke can do the job. Whether he enough time this season is open to question. Welcome to Stockport County Ian. I for one am pleased.

  • This I think is the appointment that should have been made instead of Kale****. While I am pleased about the appointment I think it will be too late. Based purely on our form and run in and that of the teams around us the probable final placings will leave us with 43 points. 8 points ahead of Telford, 1 point below Ebbsfleet & Lincoln, 2 points behind Barrow. I desperately hope I’m proved wrong and we can pull it off. The people who are to suffer most if we do go down are the blameless ones, thats us the fans. Jim Gannon must be held partially responsible for going too far with his youth policy. Jimmy Melia tried it with us many years ago & it didnt work then either. But the ones most at blame is the board for making such a ridiculous managerial appointment. Snape in particular is a County fan and has been for many years and I’m sure the appointment was made with the best of intentions. But they got it wrong and the least they could do is to formally appologise to us all for getting it wrong. A rethink on pricing especially if we are heading for BS North would not go amiss. The pricing statement from the CEO was taking the p**s. He needs to wind his neck in and start talking to the fans not dictating to us.

  • thank god for that! there is an apology…sort of bt all we can do now is hope which if i am honest ther wasnt even a sniff of on saturday here we go again!!!!!

  • I watched DK post match interview and he didn’t even know how many games we had left !!!! goodness me what a shambles so for sure I am glad he has gone….we can ….beat Newport on Saturday !!!….it was your report on a recent away game NE that set alarm bells re DK for me,,,,,good luck to the new mamager.

  • I’m hoping the Board have got it right this time, let’s face it, they haven’t got much right in the past. They let a 26 yr old Scouser in ( I think the alarm bells should have started ringing) and he brought all his Scouse mates in on big wages and 2 yr contracts, what a disaster that was, then they bring in a schoolboy Chief Exec who then brings in an unknown foreign manager with about as much idea as my cat, who then brings in a load of waifs and strays that nobody else wants !! I really hope they’ve got it right this time, before it’s too late.

  • My gut feeling is that this is too late. Agree NE – a re-think on pricing needs to be made if we do go down. I think we will have to go part-time as well. Will be in the main stand on Saturday (if we are not snowed off!) and will be giving 100% support as usual. A win against Newport will be a minor miracle though.
