I wonder what team he would pick and how he'd deal with our none passing centre halfs
I know it's repeating what's been said before but he is judged on his record of taking over struggling teams and not turning them into CL winners.
If you like stats they prove he's never failed when taking over a team.with money to spend.
More seriously, I'm just moaning about the lack of objectivity. His reputation precedes him and there seems a complete lack of realism about the whole situation. A big name coming in and we'd all be saying 'he needs 12 months' Sam come into a complete shithole and fails in 56 days?
My prediction, for what it's worth, is that by the end of the season we will be organised and stable and there will be something to build on ( as we thought we had at the end of last season!) whether that is Sam or the 'Big Name' remains to be seen.
