Think he'll be given a contract until the end of the season shortly. Any which way you cut it, he's got his players from U23's performing. Replacing him ensures that practically entire squad is demoralised and we're back to square one in terms of getting things going.

This was the decision time and it needs some bravery from Moshiri and board, but I think he's exuded calmness and control and got the team improving and developing, main players couldn't appear much more motivated. And he's not come in and started calling players shit. He gave Mirallas, Schneiderlin and Martina chances to be part of the team and they've not delivered. But both have already signaled that they made a poor decision and want to play for him.

When prep time for games increases from 3 days to a week, and players are more settled, we'll find out much more about what he wants. At the moment, it's trying to work out what he's trying to do and you can't leap a chasm in 2 jumps.

Evenb if we find it doesn't work out in a few months time, we'll have several youngsters who have developed and been given game time. So far players like Davies, DCL, Lookman have looked more confident and ready to deliver and change games.

We don't have endless options and getting the best out of the younger players, with a coach they respect and like, seems the best option. If we could get Guardiola or something then maybe not, but the only interest was from the usual suspects and while others may become more interested and things improve, fuck them, Unsworth was happy to take the world on his back and thanked us for the opportunity, he's a servant to the club, not himself.
