Player Valuation: £25m
Dave, just about any competent manager would get more out of this team. You know when a player’s legs have gone? Well Benitez is the managerial version of that. He is finished. I’ll be honest with you, I thought his football was horrific when he was in his heyday, but, at least it got results, now it’s horrific and we have beaten only Norwich in our last 10 games.And put who in the dugout?
I hope we appoint a safe pair of hands, who does not go by the name of Allardyce, to see out the season and that we use that time to identify and secure our next long term manager. He can then take over in the summer and get a pre season in with the team.
There are loads more problems at the club, we are all aware of that, but, this is the one that needs addressing most urgently.
