And what stellar name would you have got in to turn around a potential relegation scrap to a fight for the top 4?
Hmm. A team that was in joint 12th, 2 points away from 9th, beat West Ham 4-0 and had played 4 of the top 6 already? Anyone that's not a hoofball merchant would be a start. Nor would I have given said hoofball merchant a £6m a year deal, with a £1m avoid relegation bonus.
I mean, when you lay the situation out like that, it really couldn't be much more shambolic could it? That's not even Sam's fault. It's Moshiri/the board. Disastrous decision making.
