..we were managed by a truly top class manager?

Been a supporter for over 20yrs and I'm not sure any of those in control in that time period fit the bill precisely.

How long has it been?

Big Joe was up there.  Wrong board, though.  Imagine us with the 1995 equivalent of Moshiri's money.

Imagine if Joe had been able to sign Tore Andre Flo like he wanted - and the other Norwegian player we were linked with the same time.

I can still remember the day Royle left like it was yesterday

Kendal and before him Catterick. Catterick would be hated on here because of his "lack of Charisma" (Koeman) and he was so aloof.

Barmby, Speed, Kanchelskis, Short, Ferguson (on a perm). We'll forget about Barrett, Phelan, Thomson and Gerard though

Strange because our top class managers of yesteryear were only really top class with us, and all had strong links with the club and fans. Kendall, Royle and Caterick.
 I really do think that we need a special manager that has some link to the club going forward. Whether it be Arteta, Unsworth, Ferguson or even Howe. Someone that knows what its all about.

Seen someone on twitter asking the question is Koeman the worst manager we've had since Walker.

I'm inclined to agree

Tbf it was a much more toxic atmosphere the last few games that Martinez had us.

Kendall's third stint followed by Smith's was also pretty dull.

he wasn't always flavour of the month back then either though, was he

was it him that was roughed up outside an away game or was that someone else?

it was him that faced fans' wrath when he dropped Alex Young and then sold Alan Ball though.

but if it helps you to re-write history to suit your agenda against today's football fans, as if we're somehow different to any generation of football fan, then crack on
