Football manager is a ruthless job so you'd expect some degree of self-preservation in his thinking.

But the short-termism of what he's said there is way over the top. If that's how he thinks it's no surprise that the teams he's managed have never been better than above-average.

If we were still relegation threatened of course a certain amount of pragmatism should be expected. But we're not.

I agree with your point, although could be argued all the sides he has ever managed have been in or around the high pressure end of the table so it's all he's ever known, so it shouldn't come as any surprise.

EDIT: The fact I'm trying my best not to talk about the game on a match thread tells it's own story. They're going to equalise anyway and it'll end a draw. Nothing more certain

The key with truly successful people is that they don't have to be experts throughout their entire business.

The only thing they need to be expert at is identifying the right experts to come in and run their business properly and expertly. He doesn't need to know a thing about football, but he does need to know the right people to employ.

It's an admittedly small sample size but he's specializing in wrong people so far.

With that said, I agree with you. I've said a few times that he should hire consultants to help him make better choices.

There are only two things I can't stand in this world. People who are intolerant of other people's cultures... and the Dutch.

Breaking news:

Sitting back and letting your opponent pass the ball into the box is a bad strategy for retaining a lead.

He has done a poor job of it so far. Not sure he's got any of it right.
