Everyone can see your "We can't afford to sack Wright" argument has fallen apart, but your deflection tactics are as boring as they are repetitive.
Try defending your argument and keeping it on topic, otherwise it all descends into an embarrassing farce. And if you've nothing worthwhile on topic to add, probably best you stop posting.
Surely its a perfectly valid opinion to say we can't afford to sack the manager because all things you say are plausible also may not happen and you believe some or all of them are enough to make it a financial risk?
I don't know, As in in the give him chance as I still think we are good enough to not get relegated, and because of that I'm happy enough to give TW more time.

The argument has four points to it:
A) We'd have to pay off Wright;
B) We'd have to pay off White;
C) We'd have to pay compensation to another club for their manager;
D) A new manager would want money to bring in their own players.
It's a reasonable enough argument. But:
A) Wright's not on a long contract (Not the five year one Gray had certainly). We could surely come to an affordable mutual agreement.
B) White wouldn't necessarily leave - he could even get the job (Of course he may well leave, we don't know). But it's unquestionably a possibility that White could stay.
C) Given we're unlikely to get a manager from a bigger club, how likely is it that we'd pay out a large amount to another club. Would it really be much more than what we paid Nuneaton last year, when our finances were more precarious? I don't think so.
D) Again, we're unlikely to change the squad to the extent we did last season. And even last year, we could afford half a dozen players including Styche on very decent money.
None of these scenarios are outlandish or implausible. Whether they'll happen is another matter. But all I'm saying is they're possible. Would anyone disagree? Is any of what I've outlined wholly impossible?
That's why I don't think it's valid to come and say "We can't afford to sack Wright" in the way Loan_star did. It's too simplistic.
