Not keen on them making such a long term strategical decision based on the results of our next four games.

Literally anything could happen in these 4 games, for better or worse, that has repercussions on the way the club progress over the next couple of years. Itís a bit random and to much of a gamble. If youíve got faith in Unsworth back him like youíd back any new manager. If not, and itís understandable to have reservations, search out the best person for the job and get them here as soon as possible.

Just out of interest whatís this heavy investment being made in the under 23ís?

Off the top of my head all I can recall is DCL being bought for the development squad for a large sum. The likes of Lookman and Vlasic were bought for the first team squad.

Do a little more research.

Point me in the right direction?

I dont follow the u23s that much but I know there was kid from Newcastle (Gibson I think) who cost a bit and that Donkor, but dont think its been vast amounts, could be wrong though?

Isnít that Donkor just a loan like Dier was?

Lewis Gibson cost £6m didn't he? The lad from QPR, Josh Bowler, cost £4.25m.

Canít remember about Gibson but Bowler was heavily incentivised wasnít it, pretty minimal outlay initially. Even them fees are pretty standard at that level though now arenít they? Sterling cost £5m when he moved to the shite 10 years ago, Arsenal payed about that for Pennant amongst others back in the late 90ís and 00ís and god knows what City or Chelsea pay for kids.

Convenient that you 'can't remember' a 6 million outlay on an U17s player. Use google, jog your memory.

As you well know there's been plenty of seasons we couldn't spend £10m on the first team, let alone two players for the youth teams. So yeah, there has been clear and indisputable investment.

But you crack on with your agenda and don't let annoying things like facts and information get in the way.

 Moshiri out!

What are you going on about?

I couldnít remember so asked. Further investigating reveals its £6m for a lad if he manages to fulfil all kinds of incentives. Thatís not what we paid for him.

If thatís the case we paid £2m to Leeds for Luke Garbutt in 2009. Given the inflation in football transfer fees heíd be going for £20m now.

Heís clearly a very talented coach. Possibly the audition period caused stage freight? Maybe the job was to soon for him?

But Iíd rather have stuck with him than turn to the new manager myself.
