This is a man you said he understood to be at Everton, he said his mates discussed it with him. I think Peter Reid might have something to say about his nonchalant approach given our latest results and performances. We must be the easiest club to steal a living from in the country.

I still maintain he was told before the W. brom. game that his services would no longer be required after the end of the season, hence the change in mood and mention of relegation since (sour grapes by sam?). His nonchalance here reinforces my view.

Yes, it will cost a pretty penny to pay him off, but I honestly believe he saw us as a last-chance-saloon to enhance his reputation and try and shake off his hoof-ball stigma for good. I diagnose a case of hurt pride.

So something very interesting to notice in the video, while managers often give just standard replies, their body language can tell you a lot more. Watch when he is asked about NZonzi and Brozovic, he shook his head the moment they mentioned NZonzi, and nodded it when they mentioned Brozovic.

His demeanour doesn’t look great and not should it with the results we have had of late. However I hope he is putting on a more positive front in training. He seriously doesn’t look happy at present, when you compare it with his press conferences when he took over.

He's just been seriously backed with 47m worth of attacking threat, how many clubs outside the top 4 have spent that?

That's the most money he's ever had to spend in Jan transfer window.

He's worried now he'll have to start playing attacking football and he has no idea how to do that.
