To many lads who consider Jamie Redknapp, Thierry Henry and the Soccer Saturday Panel as something more sage then a whiff of urine and hair gel. Football was football long before and after Sky got his mits on it, but to many blow in the wind with what’s drip fed by the media....the thing was that after 5 months in the job a man was getting pushed out of the club...having already shown against top clubs that he could set up and match threm.
We were about *this* close from becoming Geordies.
don't be afraid of a good old vaulting... 99% of us in here have slugged Silva at some point.I think vaulting is boring and simplistic, give people a chance to change their mind and let their opinion evolve. I was not enthusiastic about Silva either but he’s started turning it around.
Look at the results between the break till now. It is a dramatic change.Any one been taking names, any one from above (or similiar) from less than 1 month ago prepare to revise their marvellous all knowing football insight
I don’t think it’s fair to blame that on Silva. It’s a mentality issue that’s deeply rooted within the club. How many times under Moyes did we have a disappointing start only to have a late surge around March/April, resulting in people talking about us as an outside chance for top 4 (or top 6 as it is now), only for us to fall short?No it's the pressure being off. The players are cowards when it matters.
