I joke about wanting Koeman out, but if we aren't able to appoint somebody of the appropriate caliber what's the point?
The jokes are born from truth though. I don't particularly rate him, despite him being plenty good enough for us to finish 7th.
It might be a bit hotheaded to want him replaced, but as we've seen with the transfer window, sometimes patience just doesn't get you anywhere.
Our issues over these tough three games haven't been a result of players bedding in. They've been tactical and structural.
We are the narrowest (and slowest) team going. It leaves our full backs exposed defensively, particularly when playing with 4 at the back. It makes it much more difficult to retain possession because we don't have options in space. As for our attack? I'll let this season speak for itself. When we move the ball around quickly and catch defences off guard we're okay, we're not doing that too much though.
These are all problems that people on a messageboard have foreseen and that we've had for a while. That Koeman seemingly did nothing to try to address them doesn't particularly bode well for our future progression.
If we want to finish the 7th, he's a good man for the job. His defensive solidity and our general quality will see us most of the way there. If we want to close the gap or compete for trophies? We should probably replace him the second we can bring in a credible alternative.
