Not convinced that will be the best policy for us.
We're probably unable to attract the same quality of players as the top six and certainly not the top four.
We need a manager who can find a system that produces a team that is greater than the sum of its parts. Imposing players on the manager could make it more difficult.

Football has moved on. No longer do clubs go all in for a manager anymore and buy players that wholly suit a certain managerial style.

Managers are more head coaches, which I suppose is what it should be. You shouldn’t base your financial and strategic decisions of a multi million pound business on the vision of one man. That thinking disappeared with the Fergie/Wenger era.

Looks a bit like a repeat of last season ahead... turn to shit (but even earlier) , drop down the league, the players panic and pull out a few good home results for a mid-table finish.

Silva is another bad appointment but we cant afford another big pay off. We'll have to put up with him for another year and try AGAIN.

Such a small time mentality. You can’t risk the immediate future of the club for the cost of one average player.

The cost of one Oumar Niasse or half a Morgan Schneiderlin gets you out of a hole you’re in and a fresh start.

As if Moshiri is going to risk his bigger vision for a few million quid.

Unless that one man is the Director of Football?

I don't know who the Director of Football is at City and Liverpool but I'm guessing either of them wouldn't survive a stand off with either manager.

Nor should they. They employ two of the elite managers in world football.

We employ a guy who could walk down County Road and hardly anyone would know who he was. He’s an irrelevance who, to be fair, hasn’t done anything in his career so far that warrants the job he has.

How are we risking the immediate future of the club?

Because another two defeats and we’re destined for another season in neverland. When we have a new stadium on the horizon we can’t afford to be throwing seasons away treading water, at best.

Moshiri doesn’t have any kind of vision.

He just throws money around at flavour of the month managers and players.

He says he wants us to be in the champions league, but he hasn’t put down any sort of plan to get there.

Come on. He does have grand plans. He has a strange way of going about things but you can’t say the bloke doesn’t want success for us. He’s just not very good at the whole strategy piece.

That's not risking the immediate future of the club. It's maintaining our traditions if anything!

FFS of course we’re not talking about the financial future!

We’re talking about another season in the wilderness, at best. Which impacts on the immediate plans we have for developing a brand to complement the commercial push to help with the new stadium.

We were getting seventh at the very best. We can still make the top ten, nothing is compromised.

You think players like Digne are going to see ‘making the top ten’ as a reason for sticking around?
