Sake.You haven't answered HK. How would you entice those managers given the situation we are in now, and do you believe it's a good idea to spend all the money on those managers and their chosen signings considering out current situation? This is your plan for after sacking Silva so how done ending and can we do it?
Then if you agree we cannot get them, or that it's not a good idea, what kind of manager do you expect them to get and how long will you give them next season if it's not going well?
The 'what if' was not an excuse, it was a question as to your opinion on the risk of that happening at this moment in time with the club.
Silva is not going well. I agree. We just disagree on how much blame is on him and how much on the mess of a squad he is attempting to sort out. I wouldn't completely disagree if he was sacked in the summer, but if you are posting every day about getting him out the door I would have thought you'd have an idea of what the club can do next.
I am not doing a job of a ceo, who is supposed to entice a manager to this club. I have repeated said it’s up to the board. If the ultimate ambition of this club is to complete with the top 6 then go and employ a top manager. If not and the people up top believe midtable (like 11th) is alright in mid-long term then perhaps keeping the current manager in charge is fine. A Dol is supposed to ensure there is a continuity in the transfer activities or else why is he employed?
Your assumption of those proven manager would want an entire new expensive squad is imaginative. If a proven manager is agreed to join he is agreed to manage a club and be able to get the best out of the squad. That’s what a competent manager should do while adding his own players.
If you accept mediocrity is fine then why do you bother to sack Martinez? Just be happy and get 11th every season.
