We've been woefully mismanaged for several decades before he arrived. We had terrible managerial appointments (Mike Walker, Walter Smith, Bringing back Howard Kendall for a third time), no transfer activity until we sold a star player to free up funds, and when we did pay big fees we landed a couple of real duds (Beatie, Billy).He's woefully mismanaged the club since becoming the majority shareholder. Terrible managerial appointments, interfering in transfers and an overpaid squad regressing year after year. Then he appoints benitez.
The stadium is the only positive, but I'd be interested to know if you would all accept us treading water in the bottom half of the league for the next 5 years?
Was thinking this myself the other day after the James leaving came up. We all knew James was only here because of him, we spend fortunes on boats in Miami and billboards in NYC etc heralding his arrival and the whole thing is built on a house of cards who can walk out for nothing.It just appears that we are absolutely clueless at negotiating. The chunky fees / wages for players of an average standard which we are now stuck with is well discussed on here, but how on earth the club gave Ancelotti a contract which allowed him to walk away scot free after the money we've had to pay to get rid of managers and compensate other clubs to let them come to us is unbelievable.
thats exactly what happened. 'Seen it all operators' like Ancelotti will have seen Moshiri a mile off and have been rubbing his hands.Was thinking this myself the other day after the James leaving came up.

Of course there a maybe a counter argument that we wouldn’t have got him otherwise…..
