There’s no certainty with any manager.
Issue with Martinez was that we hung on too long.
Koeman wasn’t a flash in the pan appointment and he did good job in the full season (following on from his own previous two seasons) but didn’t do well in particular circumstance this.
Most managers last 3/4 years and that’s if they’ve done really well.
If we’re prepared to buy good (theoretically) players then that should lessen the risk on managers working out.
Koemans reputation at Southampton seemed to be based on the various rebuilds he'd had to do. Only thing was he wasn't responsible for transfers. Then we let him be responsible for transfers and he was really shit at it. Think he got credit for work that wasn't his at Southampton
Obviously no manager is a certainty but we do seem to just want whoever is doing well at that moment. Doesn't seem to be a great deal of thought goes into it
For example we were convinced of silva a couple of months ago so surely we should still be? Doubt we are though
Not sure what the point in sacking allardyce if he's done quite well to take another punt. People seem to be saying they want rid regardless of how he does and regardless of who we can attract. That seems daft
