Last time we panicked we got Gravy Tits and he spent £50 million on Tosun and Walcott.
Good deflection, almost Benitez-likeBenitez is here. He's here and has more shots to turn this.
You need to focus on that.
There will be no sacking today and only a defeat against Arsenal will see him out.
He has a puncher's chance to turn this fight around.
Let's all get behind the team and get some points on the board.
Another ridiculous post. If we take option A it could well be that he "turns it round" when we are a mid-table team.No matter. He's here and will remain here until either
A/ he turns it around
B/ they find a replacement
On we go and face Arsenal now. THAT is what we all have to focus on.
24 months is the average tenure for a premier league manager - and once you take out long termers like Klopp and Guardiola it becomes even shorter.On the one hand, I can see the hand that Benitez has been dealt here isn't a great one. Financial restrictions, injuries, a woeful squad and a significant proportion of the fanbase against him from day one.
On the other hand, we are in the midst of our worst run of form for 22 years, so it's absolutely fair to say that Silva and even Koeman got sacked for less.
I suspect we won't sack him before Arsenal, but that game becomes a must win. Or at least a must not lose and then the following Palace game becomes a must win.
Essentially we need a minimum of 4 points from the next 2 games I would say or he'll be gone. He can't afford another defeat.
All so predictable though. We'll be back in this discussion in the next 18 months because Benitez is merely a symptom of the problem. Until we address the underlying root causes of what has allowed us to end up with a squad like the one we have, why we have FFP problems and why a manager like Benitez was appointed, we'll stay in this loop
Had the waiter walked up the steps like Kenwright and Brands did at the end, or faced the fans on the pitch at the end like the players did he would have faced an absolute volley I hope you’re aware of that ?I'm saying the board was the object of the abuse last night more than the manager.
