Not at all unexpected.....new season...new start....onwards and upwards!

Mistake heaped upon mistake by board in last few years. Club slowly imploding.

Stuart Blackett ‏@stublackett

Feel for John Hughes in a way. Never warmed to the guy though. Barron, well he should have went with Cooper in November

Jeff Hewitson ‏@Jeff_uey

I can understand Micky Barron even though I liked him, but Hughes? If Kavanagh gets the job I won’t be renewing my season ticket

Absolute joke of a club

Michael Sweeney ‏@msweeneyuk

Not sure what Hughes did wrong to be fair, club’s a joke at present, releasing only one of the first teamers and now this!

Graeme S Wheelhouse ‏@WheelhouseGS

Not surprised bit shocked and sad for Hughes. Time to boycott the club!

Lee Connor ‏@leeconnor9

Absolute joke. Should have been given a chance. They must have someone in place. #ruthless #joke
