I totally get the club was / is in a very bad place right now, low point indeed, but I also am a believer in what is meant to be will be.
Things have gone horribly wrong, but somebody said above that some of us have too longer memories and I think there is some mileage in that. It is what happens going forward that really matters - Sam and his team will of where ever they go not be the fans choice, but we don't get to choose. At least it's an 18 month deal, kind of suck it and see.
Although we spent silly amounts for not allot, there are still some very established players, important players in the twilight of their careers to be replaced soon - Baines - Jags - Williams ..... Mirarillas is not for us, and although Coleman and Bolasie will be back, there is no knowing what effect their injuries will have long term on their ability to perform as before, factor into that the player that was James McCarthy and we have a lot of new faces to bring in / re-motivate - just maybe an experienced EPL manager like Sam is well placed to help here, may be not, I'd just like folk to have an open mind,and not beat themselves up over it.
For me Rooney is pivotal, and there is in my mind no doubt that performance last night was on the back of him and Mrs Rooney seemingly all lovey dovey again.
This time last night blues we were buzzing, lets look forward to more of the same.
