I heard a great comment about Silva this morning....

"He's a bit like Hitler really. The Germans didn't like him either...... but they came around in the end"

Looking forward to the next five years in that case. However, things may turn a little sour after that.

Would be ironic if we got into Europe and first away tie was in Poland !

I'll state here and now that I dont think Silva is going to be the man for us and the huge rebuilding job required.

Hearing a lot of good things about him but something about his history tells me he's not going to be the long-term solution.

My money is definitely on 1-2 years max and then we'll be back to square one again. I just hope I'm totally wrong.

He's 40 years old. Going over his long career as a manager so far you've managed to convince yourself he's not the man for the job. Unbelievable.

Pretty sure heís only looking at the pattern of his career to date.

Heís been a manager for 7 years and weíre his 6th club, heís had a new club every season for the past 5.

Itís not the sort of record that indicates a long term stay is it?

As ever the devil is in the detail.

There's only been one job that he's left under any sign of a cloud, which was Olympiakos citing 'personal reasons.' The rest all have valid explanations attached to them which stand up to scrutiny.

Surely Watford?

And Iím pretty sure he was sacked at Sporting for falling out with the board.

Whichever way you look at it heís not a fella to stick around so saying heís unlikely to be here past 2 years is a fair estimate.

Which is why we have Brands. The manager is not as critical as it once used to be. Brands overseas the long term objectives, while the manager merely acts them out.

Moyes used to do both jobs. Now Brands does a big part and Silva another part.

Apparently, between the two of them, their wages are not as much as we were paying the fat one last season. Brands on 2 mill a year, Silva on 3 mill.

If he does 2 or 3 years and leaves us in a decent position then itís been a successful. Short term is fine as long as they do well

Sporting sacked him because they wanted to hire Jorge Jesus and needed an excuse to get rid.

They decided to use the 'breaking club policy' related to a game back in December where he didnt wear the club suit

Damn. We should have used the 'breaking club policy' to sack Sam when he spilt gravy on his tie.

Heís well aware of the Ďcriticismsí regarding longevity. Pleasing to hear him refer to 3 years and beyond (if it goes well) and the ambition that we sold to him.
