He was a major panic buy so had us by the short and curlies. I think that's why he kept saying things like "planning for next season" as a way of winding the fans up and letting Moshiri know that was the deal and to break it he wants paying out. Utter twat and a stain on this club for sure. Better times ahead is all I can focus on now.
Not a great idea sacking somebody without having a replacement lined up nevermind alternatives. There’s a World of difference between Silva and Allardyce and plenty of other options in between.
What would have happened if Watford hadn’t have sacked Silva?
We offered him a 6 month contract as soon as we couldn't get Marco. He refused and said he wanted 18 months. We shopped around for a but then went back for him and offered him the 18 months. It definitely wasn't a long term plan, he knew it and wanted the extra pay off in the summer. Hard to blame him to be fair.
Are you really suggesting there was nobody else between Allardyce and Silva?
If he was such a short term strategy and given the money he’s been paid and paid off with Moshiri made him the highest paid football manager in the world for 6 months work.
It’s mind blowing madness especially considering we were and are still paying Koeman.
