Silva was EXTREMELY full on.. how did that work out?I read that the Napoli players said training wasn't intense enough, not sure what make of that as it's been an ugly few months there.
Although apparently at Bayern the players moaned about the same thing and had extra training sessions when Ancelotti left the training complex during the last few months he was at Bayern.
Football tends to change every 5-10 years, Mourinho is still set in his ways and his football look prehistoric in the modern era of fast attacking transitional football. Fergie at United was brilliant as he always adapted and continued to have long success, he changed from the 442 and moved to 433 and hired forward thinking coaches like Carlos Quiroz and Rene Mulensteen.
It's about progression. If Ancelotti takes us to 6th and then leaves, allowing the next person to come in and take us from that position, it will have been a success.Why not? We should always be aiming to do so. Everything about the club should be geared towards getting back to the very top.
Having Carlo also means our next manager could be a Poch or a Kovac... we will be using him just as muchIt's about progression. If Ancelotti takes us to 6th and then leaves, allowing the next person to come in and take us from that position, it will have been a success.
Yes, it would have been a success, but Ancelotti would be better suited to an Everton in 6th, than an Everton 2 points off relegation.It's about progression. If Ancelotti takes us to 6th and then leaves, allowing the next person to come in and take us from that position, it will have been a success.
Why can't we get Niko Kovac now? He's another heavily criticised in Germany. I doubt he's going to walk into an elite job. If you still think he's a top manager, then why not now?Having Carlo also means our next manager could be a Poch or a Kovac... we will be using him just as much
No mateSo Ancelotti comes in shakes everyone's hands and suddenly they're all miles better players. How are we going to reach the top? Are we suddenly just going to spend a shed load of money, which FFP prohibits? It needs hard work on the training ground. We need the right man for this particular job.
So would literally any other manager though. There’s no such thing as a long term manager anymore. The likes of Pep and Klopp are the only ones and that’s because they constantly bring success to their teams and even then they’ve both said they’re leaving their jobs at the end of their contracts.He’d be gone within 2 years, he’d either fail miserably or go to a bigger club. He’s not a long term manager, I would hope if he did come it would be with an eye on bringing a successor with him.
