Well we've got actually good sides coming up soon so he's going to find himself in a position where he has to do the impossible again.
He managed to save his job last year through some miracle wins against a flagging Chelsea, Arsenal and United. He'd sorted the defence out and was getting enough from quick breaks that we were a functional side who if you slipped against would punish you.
In thst period we still got turned over by an already relegated Fulham like but that's silva.
In my opinion you shouldn't need miracle home wins to snatch 8th or save your job but there we are. Can he do it without Zouma and Gueye, our best defender and midfielder from last year? Increasingly looking like the answer is no.
