Vote now: Should Rob Page be sacked as Wales manager

10 Jun 2024 2 minute read

After a draw with 203rd ranked Gibraltar and a 4-0 defeat away to Slovakia, Rob Page is under enormous pressure.

Wales fans took their anger out on the beleaguered boss after defeat in Trnava.

Chants of ‘In transition’ could be heard as Page and his players went to applaud the Welsh supporters after the game at the Anton Malatinský Stadium.

Ukraine 

Page was appointed permanent manager after the World Cup play-off final victory over Ukraine in June 2022, but Wales have since won only five times in 22 games.

The pressure has cranked up on Page since Wales missed out on this summer’s European Championship, and two June friendlies have proved nothing short of a disaster for him.

Future

Some of those supporters had called for Page to be sacked, but the manager insisted that he was focused on the future and determined to blood young players ahead of the Nations League campaign in the autumn.

I’m not sure he is capable of getting us there, and keeping us in the running for future competitions, knowing our ranking will surly be affected, and our standing in the groups. Surly a change should have been done by now, as any new manager would go straight in to a competition without a friendly!

A public vote like this is unfair. At the end of the day this is a man with a job, you are organising a vote which lead to him becoming unemployed. I expect more of Nation.Cymru

And? If he’s incompetent, he shouldn’t have the job! Maybe he could get employment as a Politician, seeing how he has his favourites!

He suffers the same issues as many in charge of teams, he has chucked on too many fresh faces at once to give them a game. Coleman did it at the end of his time and Giggs did it and seemed to ignore giving the ball to Bale often. So will anyone be better right now, or maybe the FAW need to tell him to clam down, we still need to win as many matches as possible. Not just offer up so many caps and unsettle a team completely. He probably isn’t going to progress us any further, sadly thats… Read more »

His record is not great at near 30% win ratio with Cymru, and he also failed at club level, when sacked by league 1 Northampton after less than 8 months in charge. His tactical limitations have been exposed many a time, and to lose to Armenia ranked 93, at home 2-4 was awful, one of many embarrassing results before this last weeks results.

Gareth, above I agree with, very relevant, it’s not even Page’sresults, really. It is the basic competence at this level of management. Page seems to have no tactical nous, witness his lacking midfield tactics, his (mis)use of Johnson. 2022 World Cup, bit part. Subbed against Poland. Whatever game Lewandoski was having against Wales, he will always suck in two or three defenders which creates spaces elsewhere. Huge advantage. Johnson the same. Page’s thinking would have been that he doesn’t defend enough. Poles would never have done that mistake with their star player. Organizing the defense in general would have helped… Read more »

Diolch Alun, and may I also add, to hear pundits, all former players, on S4C, BBC Cymru and Sky sports all criticise him, then something must be out of place.

Unfortunately Rob Page’s managerial flaws have been revealed to all but the players need to take responsibility too for poor lacklustre performances, which is sad seeing if it were not for that penalty miss we’d be playing in the Euros along with Scotland & England in Germany. Not sure if any sacking would bare fruit though resulting in a quick fix. Anyway, who would replace him? A wild card. Gareth Bale’s as a replacement? Not sure if he has the badges to coach as yet and would he want the stress? I prefer page wasn’t sacked but that he stood… Read more »
