Sam was no one's first choice, but neither was Koeman. We have gone backwards since Martinez second season, only Lukaku hid the problem, our recruitment since moyes left apart from Lukaku, has not been brilliant, apart from Pickford and possibly Bolassie, none have looked worth the money.
We have to give Sam a chance in fairness, but if a quality manager , and imo, a quality DoF, we should move quickly. I have little faith in what we have.
But I have always said, our problems start at the top, we have a reputation as a "nice" club. That's ok, but I would prefer a reputation as a successful, ambitious club more.
