I'm not sure I understand it, we've just beaten his settled Watford side that was playing so well. If were saying Unsworth isn't good enough to take the job, then hows he taken a deflated, unbalanced team that can't score and come back from 2-0 down to beat Silva. Played 4, lost 3, beat Silva. The thing that might make sense of it, is if we enquired prior to the match. We were interested, but it also potentially unsettles an opponent before a game, double win.
But there has been an obvious option since Koeman went, it's the same obvious option now that has got his first win and 3 goals in a game and has just got some momentum that the board seems happy to let drain away. We lost the first 3 games because we were probably a bit too ambitious, but when a manager has only 13 days to get results, he'll play high risk, he needs the goals and the wins. Until we get something settled, the players aren't going to be able to focus or plan and your expecting miracles of a interim manager to manage the panic and get results, while speculation runs wild.
It's becoming a cowardly shitshow of desperation, lets just keep everything in flux and confusion while we scramble about chasing, that always works well. The stability at the club is coming from a young manager given an unenviable task, Moshiri appears to be running around chasing lesser options and undermines his authority. I know Unsworth may not be worrying about it or showing signs of it, but I'm getting angry on his behalf. He's got some time in interantional break to work and build with squad and he presumably doesn't know if he'll be taking charge of the next game or more, or what is happening, you can't be saying he needs to win next time to get a contract, you're tying him in knots.
If we appoint Unsworth I'll be delighted, but it's still been handled in an absolutely terrible way. If we get someone else in that is a really good manager, then why haven't we already got them. If we are going with some 3rd rate option because it's what was on available and fan opinion wants a big foreign name.
Maybe Unsworth wants a longer contract than until the end of the season. Because otherwise in the summer, he'll probably get replaced regardless how well he does. But I've seen nothing to suggest that Unsworth is behaving as anything other than a loyal dedicated servant of the club, and that's probably why he's been treated like shit.
