yeah, I like him.  Especially his belief in the youth.  It's how we will thrive, if we ever really do again.

But I'm with Jimmy, don't want to get burned by leaning with the heart.  And 4 matches is absurd as a sample size to base anything upon.

I would think/hope there are "check in" timelines - after X games, assess whether you can judge "this just ain't working."  But the Z mark to decide that it IS working should be much, much longer.

Also our thing should be we are number 1 for top prospects. We can't be number 1 for worldclass players but we can be the best place for young players who maybe wouldn't get in a Chelsea or city team yet
Unsworth would be perfect for that.

Honestly I think he's absolutely what we need. Someone to build fantastic team spirit, someone who appreciates the value of our youth teams, someone with genuine passion for the club
It appears he wants us to play aggressive pressing football. We aren't going to get relegated. I'd love to see him given this season to prove his value. Who on the list isn't a risk. We get to try before we buy with unsworth. Think he could be a great manager if we give him a go instead of being snobby about it

And no more Quixotic runs like the Rooney vanity project, which was so very West Ham of us.

New contract doesn't mean he can't be sold, mind.

The American reports say Everton think/want Beni to become our version of Kante, and eventually replace Gana in the engine room.  But it's nice for there to be assured an orderly transition.

@kramer0 for DoF.  Who wants to manage?  I know Brownie is more of a rugby fella, but he also seems like he'd command respect (or crack skulls).

I volunteer for substitutions specialist assistant, and magnet for the peoples' (deserved) abuse!  :D

The transition to a permanent manager always made sense over the next international break.

For all his obvious flaws as a candidate, winning 1 in 4...Unsy has STILL managed to pull us from the relegation zone.

Without being a corrupt, self-promoting, anti-footballer asshole.

I wouldn't make him permanent manager, but there is absolutely no reason to sell our soul and fall off the floor FFS.

Beni Baningime has looked head and shoulders above every other defensive mid this season. He deserves a start ahead of all of them imo. He looks the real deal.

abso-fucking-lutely.  The middle of the pitch was a shambles without him last weekend.

The public undermining is poor by any standard, though.
