Don't think anybody really expected us to break top four, top six maybe ... but either way a small improvement on last year Would ve been the target ... but to fuck about sacking a manager with no idea who to bring in ,then hiring shite Walsh(last year),Sam this...players not being scouted properly others left to go but no being replaced ...and the whole left back debacle .....is just piss poor management at every level, to go as far backwards off the field as we have is utter shit, money or no money .

And the fans have every right to expect better .no?.
I'm not arguing that everything is rosy, it isn't.  And once again, Sam would not be my first choice of manager. The fact is we could be 7th after the next game and that is fact, not opinion.
I just keep asking for more balanced objective debate and 'shite ' is not objective or balanced, it's an insult,  yes, but life, including football life, is more complex than assessments like that.
The Himalayas has the Yeti, Norway has Trolls, America has Hillbillies. You, good people, are blessed with Shropshire.

Iíve said it before and thereís still nothing coming out to change my mind I reckon heíll get next season as well. In my opinion itíd take something drastic now to see him released this summer.

Donít think thereís any appetite from within to go searching for our 4th manager in less than two years at present. I just canít see what makes people so confident itíll happen giving all the backing heís had since he came in, his contract length, his bonuses, the free hand to redesign the squad, the gushing praise from Moshiri at the AGM....none of it looks like a short 6 month fire fighting appointment.
There are only two things I can't stand in this world. People who are intolerant of other people's cultures... and the Dutch.

If a more attractive option comes along he'll be gone. If we can't get our first few targets then he'll stay.

I still think there is a chance Moshiri will keep him on into next season. Moshiri has already spend tens of millions more than he anticipated on hiring/firing managers and I wouldn’t be surprised if he’s questioning his own judgment after the way Koeman and Silva panned out. If Walsh can convince Moshiri to hire Allardyce, he can probably convince him to give Sam another season.

NOTHING WILL BE THE SAME

We’re going to be worse than ever.

‘We only have a short window to establish ourselves..’

As a truly shite side.

Just can’t marry the messages out the club and the big Sam reign. Fonseca in imo.

His latest comments about having to rotate the squad over Christmas shows he's a bluff merchant. Team fails, not his fault because he was forced to change the team.  Team wins, he claims the credit. Look at the teams above us Sam.. they played the same amount of games, if not more and kept the same sides barring injury etc... Billy bullshitter just like Martinez and Koeman. At least Unsy acknowledged his weakness and failures. Get safe and get shut

Your point is?

Shame we will get nowhere near the 61 points that saw us finish 7th last season . Shame the massive outlay , despite what could be our finishing position of 7th , has seen us go backwards . It just highlights how poor the league outside the now top 6 has become . That is not Allardyces fault but the bloke deserves zero credit for anything other than keeping us standing still in terms of finishing position .

Sounds impressive until you realise we've only played them 5 times at home over that period and the only two defeats were classic Martinez 3-2 games.

5-1 defeat at Arsenal is our biggest there since 2005, thus making Sam our worst manager in 13 years

Do love using some random stat as a basis for an argument
