Player Valuation: £70m
Who are the members of team VICTOR a couple of years ago?
Don’t understand why we need to sign victor if we are willing to pay 30m per year. That’s enough to hire Simeone or pocchie.why are people so agiainst this Pereira
our other most likely option is moyes, david effin moyes
this Pereira feller would be a MASSIVE risk but isn't moyes??
would rather take a risk on someone who has won everywhere he has been and has fire in his belly over david moyes who hasn't managed a successful team since us what 7 or 8 years ago
would obviously rather have carlo and diego like but they are pipe dreams
Successful in my book requires winning something. He would've had wee bit more respect in my book if he had gone up to Scotland and had some silverware behind him. Why didn't he, did he think he was too good?david moyes who hasn't managed a successful team since us what 7 or 8 years ago
if we do get this vitor feller we 1million% won't be offering him the wages he's on in china, not a chance in hellDon’t understand why we need to sign victor if we are willing to pay 30m per year. That’s enough to hire Simeone or pocchie.
that's it, as Dominic King said, if Moyes was first choice he'd have been here now... that is very encouraging for meSuccessful in my book requires winning something. He would've had wee bit more respect in my book if he had gone up to Scotland and had some silverware behind him. Why didn't he, did he think he was too good?
Anyway, what is encouraging however is, he hasn't been appointed, yet. It appears that maybe the board have woken up to the reality that there's other managers out there. The players have let the club down but there is talent at the club and the makings of a good side.
It really is pivotal they appoint the right person. I hope Brands is allowed to do his job. It would be the best thing for the club all round and they take their hands off the wheel and entrust somebody they hired to do just that.
Silva demonstrated that it was a short road to the bottom.Doesn't really matter who the new manager is.
It's a convenient and easy thing to point the finger at and change. How has the managerial merry go round from Moyes to Martinez to Koeman to Allardyce to Silva actually changed anything in the last 7-8 seasons?
Different managers and different philosophies have all come unstuck. Either the hierarchy of the club are choosing the wrong managers or they are choosing the right manager but the footballing structure at the club doesn't allow them to flourish. I actually think you can make a better argument for the latter rather than the former.
We also need to look at ourselves too. Why is the 1st option to always look at the manager to be the fall guy? Why isn't their more pressure on the club hierarchy for the mess they've created? At a different level, but this is very similar to United. Lots of money but no idea due to a lack of identity and holistic footballing strategy. Wolves and Leicester are the polar opposite and are extracting everything from their resources. They are following on from what Spurs have achieved and following a similar blueprint. We seem stuck in a myriad of directions and strategies that just give a muddled approach to many aspects of the footballing side of the club.
The other aspect is that the fanbase needs to take a long hard look at itself. Brilliant, loyal support for many years that has been rewarded with incompetence and under achievement. It feels rubbish and I completely understand why everyone is very frustrated. But I think our lack of patience (not necessarily with Silva per se) hurts the club. We seem very quick to turn on managers and players and it's fair to say it creates a toxic environment around the club. We need to harness our support and passion for the good of the club. That probably means resetting the negativity we all have stored upside. Maybe even resetting expectations in some cases.
It's a long, long road back to the top. Even under the best of managers (and we can't attract them) it wouldn't be a straight upward trajectory. We are going to need years to get back competitive for Top 4. That's with making a lot of correct decision on and off the pitch. We need to be patient and hold those accountable to taks. That doesn't always mean the manager and players are the 1st to blame.
