Nor sure about him having a much more promising record than either Koeman or Martinez tbh, not that we should use them as a yardstick.
Koeman has had more success, in the Prem and abroad.
Martinez has also had much more success in the Prem, he also got his team relegated, but did manage to win a trophy I suppose.
I suppose as a younger man, maybe he's more highly regarded than either Martinez or Koeman were at that age.
I'm warming to the idea of Silva, but Im still leaning more towards keeping Unsworth in place until the end of the season, weigh up our options then.
