6 points off safety wasn't it? He had half a season to turn it around and am not saying he was against it with that side but we recently had a manager who did a similar thing.
As for wat ford they started pretty well last season too (or was it the season before?) and still ended up mid to low table.
He may well do well with us but there's nothing to say he will be a success with us.
In fact I would argue Koeman has been more successful than Silva and look how that turned out.
The choice of manager linked with us right now is very underwhelming.
Are you deliberately ignoring his record before the PL?
