At least he showed us yesterday why he hasn't come for a cross in two years.

We've definitely gone more direct in the last 6 weeks or so. Maybe that's because we've been playing top 4/6 opposition but the more direct style has been noticeable.

Can't ignore his big success rate with his signings. Only Mina still has something to prove and injuries have been mitigating in his case.

Can you train players not to flap when things go wrong? I dont think you can, too many of ours completely lose their heads

Of course you can. You have players in the side that recognise the signs early and for 10/15 minutes they circle the wagons. Let's walk before we can run, or before we know it our season will be over.

The lack of surprise at the result and performance is probably the biggest indictment of Silva and Brands.

Can't be doing with another mid season sacking.
Got to give Silva the full season at least.

I’m not sure it even matters anymore. We seem to have little ability to pick a good manager anyway. Give him this season and next then move onto the next disappointment without having to pay this 1 off

It's got to be more than coincidence that apart from a two year spell with basically the same team thirty odd years ago we haven't found one top manager.

Moyes was a top manager

Yes fair enough, maybe I meant we can't find a manager that can win significantly more games than he loses.

Yes, I fear that too, but you just have to hope that this philosophy of buying exciting young players excites and inspires Kean, Richarlison, Bernard, Pickford, and Digne to want to stick around and become our accomplished senior players as we enter our new era in our new stadium.
It's naive to think players will even consider the possibility of playing in a new stadium when committing the prime years of their careers.

We employed a manager when we were unable to decipher his track record.
Therefore he can't be accused of not living up to expectations after 14 months.

We've taken a punt and we should see it through for the rest of this season at the very least.
