Can you read? All I said was he wont and shouldnt listen to the fans anyway. No manager should... my point, which you clearly didn't get, is any manager should live and die by there decisions not just do what the fans want.

The phone in is pointless and at the wrong time. Hes had one half decent month and followed it with a dire defeat. Let's get another 10 from the next 5 (1 gone already), then he could feel justified in doing this kind of thing.

I've never once claimed to be a good football manager. I'm a fan whose fairly knowledgeable about football and watched MTFC play for about 25 years.

However he spins it, this season is disastrous so far.

Fair play to him, think he knows it could be a potentially difficult night for him.

Absolutely nothing against JD and praying he’s a success but I really can’t see it.

My question would be why do we wait to make subs? Saturday was a prime example.

my question would be if you were John Radford how long would you give the present manager in his role, And secondly if you were relieved of your duties would you take a rollback within the youth set up of the club

Won’t be able to listen but I hope some decent questions come through and that he has an answer beyond. We’re trying our best, things have turned around and I was nominated for an award last month.

My thoughts on questions below:
We’ve had some decent results away from home but home form is one of the worst in the league. What do you think is going on? How are you looking to improve the home form? Do you think this is a reason why you think many supporters aren’t happy? E.g. more see you at home than away.

What are you measures of success and failure for the season? Are we living up to them now?

What work do you do on team shape on and off the ball? Do you think it was working as Colchester had us all over the place and completely out of shape. Do you think we leave too much space between midfield and the strikers?

We don’t see many goals from midfielders in comparison to top teams int he division, is this a cause for concern?

Question

What does Glover actually bring to the team......

Would you step back down to the youth set up if the board wants to change the management team.

Did you meet Nathan Jones after his interview on Monday at the Moore Hotel ?

If he was interviewed obviously he's turned us down.

1 question i would want to ask is, Why are you reluctant to make subs and change a game before we concede? (has the orient game scared him?)

Take a leaf out of the Billy Bingham management guide and take the players on a bus trip before a home game so mentally they think they are playing away from home.

Actually feel for JD, he comes across as a really nice guy, it’s just it’s not going to work as manager

sad but very probably true

my rough notes of what you've missed so far:

John Dempster: We’re only a third of the way into the season. I think it would be fair to judge me at the end of the season.
caller Scott Simpson: stark contrast to how performed last season defensively. Pearce has been half the man he was last year.
John Dempster: a real frustration for me as an ex-defender. I think KP would agree with you that he hasn’t been at the standards of last season. A lot of goals have come from basic errors. Because they are basic errors, they are fixable and it’s frustrating that we haven’t so far.
caller Scott Simpson: are the defensive errors a mental thing?
John Dempster: Drewe Broughton has had a positive effect on performances and results.

continued:
caller Michael Hemford: was pleased you were appointed, you deserved the chance. Our disciplinary record is atrocious.
John Dempster: I appreciate that. You’re spot on. I carry the can for results. I’m determined to be successful. I feel I’ve earned the opportunity, and it’s for supporters like you that I want to do well.
caller Michael Hemford: question about the two players out on the town.
John Dempster: The case is ongoing so I can’t say too much. It was a situation that I was very angry about and just talking about it it’s gets my blood boiling.
caller Paul Beastall: how do you feel after the defeat on Saturday?
John Dempster: After every defeat it’s like a dagger to my heart. My lowest point in football ever was after the Leyton Orient game.
caller Paul Beastall: question about Matt Preston and defence.
John Dempster: Matt Preston has underperformed at times this season. And as a collective we haven’t been good enough this season.

continued
caller Ryan Jordon: has the step-up from academy manager to first team manager been what you expected:
John Dempster: Bigger. Some of the things in the academy are transferable, other things are completely new. It’s been a really test.
caller Alan from Mansfield: if John and Carolyn support you in January transfer window, what will you target?
John Dempster: central midfield, only one recognised left back, and attacking wide area.
caller Hayden Liverland: the midfield is not good enough, apart from Mellis when on song. Don’t know what’s happened to Tomlinson. Shaughnessy is ok.
John Dempster: had a few open conversations with Jacob and about being better off the ball. Bish brings a wealth of experience. He would say he could do better and he’s not alone, others could say the same.
caller John Sankey: Shaughnessy is our answer to Franz Beckenbauer.
John Dempster: Conor’s wages are a lot higher than what we are paying. The squad is settled but it is frustrated as well. They feel the pain. I believe the players have got the quality in them to get up the table. I think we can get into the play-offs without a doubt. We can be successful.
caller Rob Jones: I’m starting to think this season is maybe not our season. It would be nice to see Bobby between the sticks. I don’t have any confidence in Conrad. Would Craig Davies be better retiring.
John Dempster: I disagree with you on Conrad. He’s one of the players who’s been in better form in recent weeks. That said, we’re very lucky to have Bobby. It’s healthy competition and I’m hoping that’s why Conrad’s doing so well. Craig is very focused and competitive.
caller Mel Piasecki: we need a midfield general.
John Dempster: I’ll speak to the chairman in more detail before January, if the chairman agrees it’s something we’ll look into.
