Very arguably, given that Watford don't keep managers for a whole season very often, and they sacked him anyway, not long after. I think it's fair to say that there's a marked difference between how Silva has conducted himself at the club (with young players, involvement in EITC, the opinions of the players) from Koeman and Allardyce's arrogant arseholery, and I think deep down you know that's the case. Don't be afraid to admit your wrong about that, even at this late stage. We all are sometimes.
Of course, results on the pitch matter more than how amenable someone is, but it stills makes a difference how you conduct yourself.
You've thrown in 'I like the guy' and then you go on to be vaguely critical of him. It reminds me of Marcus Aurelius' speech in Julius Caesar where he keeps referring to the killers/conspirators as 'honourable men' before going on to eviscerate them. A little disingenuous
In fairness you said you haven't watched/tuned out of a lot of games this season, and also said it's been dire football for 6 months, so perhaps it's difficult to take your opinion particularly serious, when you've not even watched many games.
I like Silva because as you said he’s saying the right things in interviews and getting involved at the club, not because of how we perform on match day. I can separate the liking of the man from the questioning of his teams performances without being disingenuous, although top points for the Marcus Aurelius reference, I’m flattered.
I said I’ve tuned out of more games this season than I have before, although that’s probably still less than a handful of games I’ve not been able to sit through.
As for your condescending ‘it’s not too late to admit you’re wrong’ line, we’re not talking about right or wrong here as there’s no ‘correct’ answer. Do you honestly think that Silva should be immune to all criticism just because he’s only been here half a year?
