Surely surely surely he’s had shitter at his disposal and managed results.

Suppose the problem could be we don’t just demand results we demand performances.

I think one of the problems is that he once managed a bit of success with Bolton, but that was many years ago, and football has moved on considerably since then and others have coped on to his tactics and can combat the style of play he brings.
Yes you may get a team in the bowels of despair, no wins in 8 to 10 games, and he'll come in, park a bus, hoof balls up the field, gets a point here and there and drag them out of the bottom three, but that's it. There won't be a cup run, there won't be any improvement on the year before, the best you can hope for is mid table mediocrity. I strongly believe Unsworth could have produced shite equally as good till the end of the season, kept us safe, and saved a few million on wages.
The fume would have been the same though.
