Give me these 2 incidents of corruption he's been found guilty of.

Are these incidents the issue? Would you have a problem if it was someone you deemed a better manager

He was sacked as national team manager for matters unrelated to football. Anyone who saw the undercover interview knows it smelt rotten and although he'll say he didn't break any FA rules he gave it the big un and got caught out.
Pretty sure there have been instances over the years about players being put under pressure by him to change agents to the same one as him, presumably for kickbacks, but I'm out at the minute so I can't check for details.

Anyway, yes maybe the corruption may have been overlooked had he been the purveyor of good football and decent character but he doesn't and he isn't. They're all factors which together build the narrative of a man who I dislike and I think as a club we should be aiming a little higher than the gutter, especially if we have ambitions to rise above the mediocrity which we've found ourselves in during recent years.
