Guardiola has pedigree though. We all knew he was a great manager. That buys you time. Silva might not be. He might be the wrong choice. There’s only so much time you can give when you’re not sure you’re on the right track
Also people (don’t think it was you) talking of clear progress are for me delusional. The sides we’ve beaten this season are all rubbish apart from Leicester who had 10 men. We’ve had a handful of good performances and so far worse results.
We'll find out when we've had adequate time to get the personnel in that is needed for the way he wants to play. For me, the way Silva has us playing is drastically different to any of our recent managers, even our one 'ball-playing' manager Martinez didn't have his team press anything like Silva. So for me, until he can get a group of players in that he wants which is probably another two windows, we shouldn't be going overboard on criticism.
