    Dean Watch.

    Given that our much loved former manager is back in football, it is only fair that we track how he does.

    First up for Dean is a home game game against Colchester United. Will his Crawley team get him off to a winning start?

    Colchester United at 13/8 has to be the value bet.
    In the age of information, ignorance is a choice.

    He hasn't had time to work his "magic" yet. He didn't lose his first game here.

    Wasn't his first game at Wolves against Blackburn Rovers. I think it was live on sky sports.

    Anyway he now has a chance to show what he can do. Things did not go too well for him at Molineux, so another club and a new challenge might be what he needs.

    Obviously as official press officer I will be making a full statement on behalf of my client in due course, but first things first. The Crawley lads need to take this wisdom on board: if you're not fired with enthusiasm you'll be fired with enthusiasm. Plenty more where that game-changer came from...

    Good God we were terrible in that Blackburn game. There was then a sizeable proportion of this forum who were enthused by us playing 1983 football with Jake Cassidy running the channels.

    Colchester are poor but I'll be backing them like I'll be backing every team that plays against the worst manager in British football.

    The verdict thread for that Blackburn game makes for grim reading.

    Deano has examined the Crawley DVD's, has worked out where they've been going wrong and has been extolling the virtues of bringing all 11 men back for corners ahead of the Col U game today. The word genius is overused these days...

    A point is better than nothing, though I imagine that Dean would have been expecting all three.

    Did they have to drag him off the training ground for his unveiling?

    No game next week for Crawley. It gives our Dean two weeks to get them ready.

    Dean's post match comments::

    "We put a back four together today. Lewis Young played left-back and Marvin Elliott played centre-back and both have never played in the back four before. I thought they were both outstanding.
    "In these two weeks I need to get players into the building because we are obviously short which I didn't realise. I also didn't know some of their names but they've had a go and we got a good point.
    "I was asked to do the job by (chief executive) Michael Dunford and I knew John was ill and it's difficult circumstances and strange circumstances. John rang me himself and asked me would I help and I said if you give me the tools to make a difference then I will and they have ensured me I can make them better."

    He tries so hard to be funny and likeable and just ends up spewing.

    "I also didn't know some of their names", how unprofessional can you get? Moron.

    He's only been in the job 1 day to be fair, not surprising he doesn't know all their names yet.

    Surely that doesn't excuse saying that out loud, though? Could easily alienate some players right off the bat.

    If someone who's managed to reach the heady heights of playing for Crawley has the Prima Donna attitude to get in a huff because a who's known them for 24 hours can't remember a few of their colleague's names, he hasn't singled out anyone he doesn't remember so they can't take any personal offence, then i don't think i'd be too worried about alienating them. These aren't exactly household names he's working with here.

    I can see that, I s'pose. Still seems an unflinchingly dim thing to say to me.

    Depends really, almost certain that he's said it as a joke at how new in the job he is rather than a swipe at the players being nobodies, you'd hope the players have enough common sense to see it that way. Then again if any of the squad are of the mindset of Dan, hatred at first sight, then perhaps they'll choose to take it to heart and use it against him.

    Which comes back to my earlier point, if they're that stuck up their own arses after reaching the dizzying heights of Crawley Town then they're probably not the characters you want in that relegation fight. It'd be like a 5 year old getting pissed off at being overlooked by RIBA after they'd built a lopsided Lego house.
