Great news. Even though we have very limited facts and itís hard to apportion blame, itís clear Walsh isnít working out. Fresh start and hopefully a new manager and some good signings coming through the door soon.

Knowing us, we'll end up with fucking Russell Brand.

Iím freelancing at a Dutch company at present and there is a super knowledgeable guy who talks a lot about football. I mentioned the rumor and he said that it has been in the Dutch press too, he says that Brands has a good scouting network in Central and South America and finds good players from Mexico and Columbia.

I don't know how true this is, but it doesn't sound promising with regards to a 'summer of sweeping changes'.
Yes, we're being condescending. Yes, that means we're talking down to you.

I was in favour of keeping one (Walsh) for a year and sacking the other (Allardyce) to allow for a bit of continuity. Giving Walsh the benefit of the doubt as most of his signings were probably the right call at the time.

That article makes it sound like we are keeping one & sacking one in the summer, but arse about tit and Allardyce is the one staying.

Not many Mexican or Columbian players have made it in the Prem, have they? Doesn't seem to suit their style. Not that I'm playing Brands down or anything.

Isn't the DoF's objectives to decide the fate of the manager?

I hope the club have decided to give the job to Brands now and give him the rest of the season to evaluate the health of the club, the squad, understand its strengths and weaknesses and then decide that Sam is a calamity and then fire him as soon as the whistle blows on this clusterfuck of a season.

That removes Moshiri from the process and he can say it was the new guy implementing his regime.

Just to play devils advocate, and I hope Iím wrong as I donít know anything about Brands, but As heís familiar with the Dutch league and the Dutch players would that not make him more likely to sign players such as Klaassen and others heís been working with. Just a thought like.

Regardless of how Klaassen has (or hasn't) done this season, it wouldn't put me off looking to bring over players from Holland. Hirving Lozano, Hakim Zayech, De Ligt, Dolberg; there is quality there.

I honestly donít think that we will ever find out how good/bad Klaasen is untill he is given the opportunity to play in position within a system that works, personally hope he is kept on and given a chance with a new manager in a structured pre season.

By all accounts he favours South American players

Hmm... would most of us rather Heitinga and Klaassen or Oviedo and Funes Mori?

Jose Baxter is already preparing his CV for a new scouting job
