Oh Dear.  Fuck off Ron, even I can't see a glimmer of hope.  Please take Big Dunc as well.  He already made a career of collecting a paycheck from the bench.

Big Dunc what?

looks like he wasn't first choice with a number of people back then.

He is a Moyes dressed up in Ancelotti clothes.

I appreciate his ability to make fucktons of money from a minimal managerial skillset. Can't say I wouldn't do the same if I were him.

'In a sense Koemanís failure at Everton says little about how he would fare at Barcelona, but scar tissue tends to accumulate and it will, understandably, count against him. Itís not a coincidence that he has never looked better as a manager than he did at Ajax when they won the league in 2004. In that regard, his career has never fully recovered from a tackle by Zlatan Ibrahimovic on his Ajax team-mate Rafael van der Vaart in a friendly between Sweden and Holland in August 2004. Van der Vaart was injured and blamed Ibrahimovic, exposing fault-lines in the dressing room and placing pressure on the already fraught relationship between Koeman and his sporting director, Van Gaal. Ibrahimovic was sold to Juventus in the ensuing mess and, without a striker, Ajax collapsed.

Koeman resigned the following February and, although he won the league with PSV two years later, it feels as though he has been seeking another Ajax ever since.' Guardian

Actually felt this was about as classy as he has been. Although he always seems to chose photos where he looks like he's breaking wind.

I get the impression he had certain contractual targets he would have been struggling to satisfy, but he would hold on until then what ever the cost. So he was fighting his corner and now it's like 'but ok, I got my money, no hard feelings'.

I thought I might be embarrassed. But glad to see I'm not.

Ye I'm pretty much in the same boat now as I was then, I didn't really have a clear favourite for any available established manager at the time either. I Didn't want Koeman back then as I thought he was boring and underwhelming, I actually called him 'Moyesesque', which I can now see is harsh on Moyes.

One thing I definitely didn't consider back then was Unsworth taking charge, so that's definitely changed as he's now my favourite for the job.

He's gone up in his estimations for the way he's dealt with this.

I do wonder if he'd have been given a little more slack from the fans if he'd articulated clearly his thoughts on Giroud/Rooney/Vlasic before today.
