I wanted Allardyce in a few weeks ago, because I saw how bad we were. Under Koeman and then Unsworth.
And since then we've gotten worse. We're getting absolutely battered, not just lingering mid-table.
It's very worrying and Allardyce is the closest you can get to guaranteed improvement.
If we were a little higher in the table or looked a little more assured in performances, we could afford a slightly riskier appointment. "Progressive" as some people have said... I don't like using that word but I get what they mean. An attacking philosophy. Although right now we just need pragmatism and some strong leadership.
But Sammy Lee... fuck sake, there has to be another option.
I dont think things are that bad, and nothing any manager worth his salt couldn't rectify, plus the addition of a striker of course.
The irony is teams like Spurs and Liverpool aren't saying they're out of the title hunt yet were closer in points to them than they are to City, a win tonight and were level with the team in 12th position, despite this season being an absolute car crash, we had an horrendous set of fixtures at the beginning with some very winable games coming up and in 2 weeks things could look a whole lot different.
My only regret is that Unsworth has been so poor, if there was even a glimmer of light at the end of the tunnel under him we wouldnt appoint Sam, does that make it right, no from me, but we are where we are and there isnt much any of us can do to stop it so we might as well try to enjoy the journey!
