Not convinced that will be the best policy for us.
We're probably unable to attract the same quality of players as the top six and certainly not the top four.
We need a manager who can find a system that produces a team that is greater than the sum of its parts. Imposing players on the manager could make it more difficult.

Football has moved on. No longer do clubs go all in for a manager anymore and buy players that wholly suit a certain managerial style.

Managers are more head coaches, which I suppose is what it should be. You shouldn’t base your financial and strategic decisions of a multi million pound business on the vision of one man. That thinking disappeared with the Fergie/Wenger era.

Looks a bit like a repeat of last season ahead... turn to shit (but even earlier) , drop down the league, the players panic and pull out a few good home results for a mid-table finish.

Silva is another bad appointment but we cant afford another big pay off. We'll have to put up with him for another year and try AGAIN.

Unless that one man is the Director of Football?

I don't know who the Director of Football is at City and Liverpool but I'm guessing either of them wouldn't survive a stand off with either manager.

Such a small time mentality. You can’t risk the immediate future of the club for the cost of one average player.

The cost of one Oumar Niasse or half a Morgan Schneiderlin gets you out of a hole you’re in and a fresh start.

As if Moshiri is going to risk his bigger vision for a few million quid.

Nor should they. They employ two of the elite managers in world football.

We employ a guy who could walk down County Road and hardly anyone would know who he was. He’s an irrelevance who, to be fair, hasn’t done anything in his career so far that warrants the job he has.

How are we risking the immediate future of the club?

The cost of paying off Silva's contact will be of zero concern to Moshiri. If he wants him gone then he'll be gone.

I've always been firmly in the 'Silva in' camp, but his substitutions yesterday lost any faith I had in him... That's a man under pressure with no idea how to change things.  Resorting to such desperate measures at home Vs a newly promoted team is a sure fire sign of the wheels having come off.

I really thought he'd be our Pochettino but he's fast looking more like our AVB.

If we get turned over by City I think he'll be gone... Really think that's do or die for him. We've got rock bottom, the city game will tell us everything we need to know about if the players are with him or he's lost them. Big game for Marco, possibly the biggest of his career.

United, Chelsea and Arsenal are all very average and yet we're still nowhere near them, fucking awful that

Moshiri doesn’t have any kind of vision.

He just throws money around at flavour of the month managers and players.

He says he wants us to be in the champions league, but he hasn’t put down any sort of plan to get there.

Hey there mister can you tell me what happened to the seeds I've sown
Can you give me a reason sir as to why they've never grown

Because another two defeats and we’re destined for another season in neverland. When we have a new stadium on the horizon we can’t afford to be throwing seasons away treading water, at best.

Come on. He does have grand plans. He has a strange way of going about things but you can’t say the bloke doesn’t want success for us. He’s just not very good at the whole strategy piece.

That's not risking the immediate future of the club. It's maintaining our traditions if anything!

That’s what I’ve pretty much said.

No plan or strategy to fullfill his ambition.

His plan is/was/should be , put the club on firm financial ground, hire the best DOF andCoach that you can attract to the club, provide them with the funds to build a squad capable of challenging after which there is not much more he can do. It just seems the plan isn’t coming together but let’s see in December.
