Not sure why you feel sorry for him tbh, mate. He's the biggest beneficiary of every party involved in the situation. I also don't agree that the criticism is remotely unfair - just boring because we've been over it ad infinitum.
Every managerial appointment at every club is a roll of the dice to some extent, so I don't really buy into the 'next manager is a gamble' narrative either. They're all gambles. It's a question of minimising the gamble with sufficient due diligence.
Well because itís not like heís tricked anyone, is it? Heís a big lump it up and
it in dinosaur and has been for his whole career, moshiri knew what he was getting when he hired him and for whatever reason thought that we would be able to stomach it.
The criticism isnít unfair particularly, itís just a bit misguided. The issue isnít allardyce, there are more deep rooted and serious issues than allardyce and being frank his tough-to-swallow pragmatic medicine has probably prevented the worst case scenario for this year.
I know we can say unsworth, Koeman or silva or whoever would have done minimum the same but they arenít facts, facts are most of us would have bitten your hand off for safety in the top ten a few months ago when things were looking darkest.
The criticism is fair in that we did not want him or his football and we still donít, and if nothing else it just serves to show moshiri how much we disapprove then fine, but heís still just a fella with pride and his own ideas about the game. Heís not doing particularly worse then koeman or unsworth or Martinez, but big fat gravy swigging brexit Sam is a meme and our fans are revelling in playing up to it.
Heís not the issue, heís a symptom of the issue.
The next manager is of course a roll of the dice, unless something happens with brands / Walsh / our other recruitment and overall strategy that shows it to be anything other than it has been so far which is expensive roll after expensive roll.
