I think he’s a smart manager who will adapt his tactics and formation based on the personnel available, the strength of the opposition and where we’re playing.

Couldn’t play his usual 4-3-3 with that midfield or two slow centre backs so he played what was best for the team away from home and it should have got us three points if the ref hadn’t shit his pants.

So we just gave him the extra year of his contract as a bonus then?

Or should that be an added bonus on top of his £2m bonus for recusing us from 11th that is.

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.

Doesn’t have the players to play how he wants.

I reckon only Digne, Gomes, Bernard and Richarlison can implement his game plan.

Possibly Lookman too? Think (and hope) we'll start to see more of him second half of the season.
