Have to say, I know I set up the poll, but fuck me this is a difficult choice.

Surely we can all rule Martinez out on account of him being both inept and perhaps a lunatic. Moyes looks shot.
In the ideal world it would be unsworth but there's been some really dreadful performances under him as caretaker and it looks too soon
Koeman or allardyce. Personally I'd go allardyce on account of him might be able to not piss everyone off

Just want Sam to do it now. Everyone else is irrelevant.

Pre-2009 Moyes, but not after that.

Otherwise Allardyce. He's unquestionably best suited to our current structure with Walsh and, though I may not like it, I think he has more of a defined style/game plan than Koeman.

Sadly, Unsworth's slight naivety and lack of consistent plan ruled him out for me in the end.

Koeman before he turned into a bellend.

I think that was kinda day 1. I know people loved the whole beating up on players in the press (ala Barkley) after the pandering era of Martinez but personally I think that's a no-no and one of the reasons a lot didn't warm to him. By all means say something isn't good enough when it isn't, or acknowledge a mistake but you don't need to single out players in the press when they really have to ability to reply, keep that stuff for behind closed doors. Plus if you want to sell them it doesn't do anything good to their value.

I don't recall support for a manager evaporating so quickly as it did under Koeman. I think his attitude with certain players and fans from the get go didn't help as there was little tolerance once the results went the wrong way.

The one who’s most likely to win something.
There are only two things I can't stand in this world. People who are intolerant of other people's cultures... and the Dutch.

In fairness, we'll have to wait and see with Allardyce.

Would have.made.more sense to have put an option of a manager we could get who has not managed us.
