Fans vent their fury at under fire Carshalton boss
Pressure is mounting on Carshalton Athletic manager Paul Dipre to quit.
The Robins owner has come under fire from fans since taking over from Mark Butler a year ago but has failed to inspire a play-off push this season with the team 16th in the Ryman Premier League.
Last week, he looked back on his first year in charge and admitted it could have been better but he could also have done a lot worse – an assessment which led one angry fan to write into the paper.
“Paul Dipre’s first year report cannot go unanswered,” he said.
“It’s little more than an attempt to cover a remarkable record of failure as manager.
“Whereas most of us would admit we wouldn’t have the skills to do the job, he appears to be the only person who hasn’t realised he doesn’t have them either.
“Morale on the terraces is at an all-time low, not helped by the atmosphere and the exodus of younger fans in particular.
“Dipre has achieved good progress in some areas at the club but he has failed to understand he is clearly not the right person for the manager’s job in my opinion.
“He should gracefully step down and bring in a manager with a proven record at this level, and let him get on with the job while returning to a behind-the scenes role.”
The Robins host Hendon on Saturday after losing 1-0 to Canvey Island last Saturday, their a fourth defeat in a row.
