Hm, fair re: koeman.
Moyes - I dunno how much the financial argument matters here. I felt he was at the club too long and it had gone long stale before he went - however it’s not the clearest in my mind and this might just be opinion I’ve built up since then.
Think I’m looking through my fume-o-goggles this morning tbh.
No I agree there was a “stale” air for many re Moyes (as hinted at before, I think this was on the last two fa cup losses). Objectively we were playing decent stuff in his last year and we seemed to have a bit of direction (ie most positions were covered bar striker).
Just meant with the finances that we couldn’t afford to get things wrong, as in if we sacked him, paying out £8m or whatever, that was the next 3 years’ transfer budget gone too
Anyway, back to the present...
At least with a DoF there is an increased chance of a proper assessment of manager/ coach performance.
Previously it’s been down to finances, sentimentality and listening to fans base grumbles.
