Loads of appropriate lack of respect on this forum
He has a big injury list, taken over a team with zero confidence that was conceding many goals under the clown Unsworth and fraud Koeman and hasnít had a transfer window to buy any players.
But haters gonna hate, sad.
Not having a bad word against someone and constantly exaggerating his achievements both in the past and so far here is a bigger appropriate lack of respect than anything else.
I doubt there's anyone that isn't happy that he's steadied the ship and made us harder to beat, what people are wanting now is to see if he can move on to the next level and put his money where his mouth is so to speak, he says he doesn't like the firefighter tag so now's his chance to prove that. All he's done so far is what is Sam Allardyce known for (the very reputation he doesn't like) go in and make a team hard to beat and not concede goals, now people want to see if we can start being a bit more attacking and play actual football rather than just play backs to the wall, hoof it up the park and try and knick a goal.
To be fair, he's making the right noises about wanting to be more attacking and getting a quality striker in but lets not start making out that he's suddenly reinvented the fucking wheel, he's not done anything over and above what he's known for, dull hard to beat football but we had over a game and a half against Chelsea and West Brom without a shot on target, that's nothing to praise him for regardless of the players at his disposal and something he needs to change.
