He’s done a very good job.
His remit was to lower the age of the squad, lower the wage bill, whilst adding quality and he’s done that.
In the short term though, he hasn’t given silva the squad needed to achieve our goals. He hasn’t given the manager the left footed wide man or centre half that he wanted, so he has to take part of the blame for that.
Make no mistake though, it’s players form previous regimes that are the problem.
Keane, Sigurdsson, Morgan and Coleman shouldn’t be starting games on the regular for us, and I suppose you can’t completely overhaul the team in a twelve month period.
He’s all long term thinking and it’s what we need after the Koeman/Walsh era. But the short term has been neglected somewhat.
