After 18 months of steadying the ship - which is all anyone should expect from Allardyce rather than getting carried away - then with good purchases from Walsh and co then we should be in a position to attack the top four within a couple of years
Should we? It will take unbelievable work in the transfer market or a lot more investment than looks likely
Also even if we are what if we are in part because of allardyces work with Walsh and allardyces man management and tactics.
If we are on the verge in 18 months then it's highly likely that it's to allardyces credit. We then just get rid and have a punt on someone else?? If that's a simeone or a guardiola I can see the logic. If it's the next koeman or silva we'll be giving up what will then be a proven team for just a hopeful punt .
