I do like his bluntness, I feel he's a proper authoritarian type manager and we needed that after Martinez.  He also got the players fit and despite the terrible form the players still look like they are battling hard out there.

Sadly his man management has destroyed the confidence of Keane, Williams, Klaassen and Schneiderlin.  He's also refused to play Davies from the start most weeks despite him looking like our best player, and has frozen Lookman out fro what seems like no reason and at detriment to the team.  There's a million other examples of this man management self destruction too, so whilst his bluntness and attitude was a positivity at the start it's not any more.  I liked it and I do think it has its place, I in fact wish more managers were like this and player power wasn't so big.  However what I liked about it will and has become his ultimate downfall as our manager.
