Imagine a world where you could sign a contract worth £6m a year and then force your way out of it after a few months and still get paid

Bang on.

He could blame the players, the fans and whoever he wanted, he wouldnít care. Pint of Cristal to celebrate.

The players DO have to take a big cthunk of the blame.

Some of these professionals are letting us down time after time whoever the manager is.

Martinez is now Belgium manager... Koeman will be Holland's.

Things worked well under both here at first. Did they become bad managers or did the players ?

They are doing the same to Allardyce.

That might have been a valid argument had it been the same players throwing games now to when we used to capitulate under Martinez but it isn't. We've spent hundreds of millions and used over 30 players just this season. There wasn't a single player (barring Niasse who barely played) who featured against Arsenal that was here when Martinez got the bullet so let's stop saying there is something endemic throughout the squad.

This time last year we were still in with a shout of the top 4 and with a good summer of recruitment Koeman would still be here and we wouldn't be where we are now. In my mind the buck stops with one man and that is Walsh, a man appointed way above his ability and has been instrumental in everything bad about the club in the past 18 months.

Writing 'unwinnable' games against the top 6 off is what teams at the bottom of the league, like Swansea, do........

Go on Sam, keep talking, keep digging a hole, keep saying completely inappropriate things to the media. The press love a story so they'll keep pushing, keep pricking his ego, keep looking for him to open that big mouth of his to defend his misguided notion that he's blameless. You just have to hope he runs his mouth off too much and gives us an excuse to relieve him of his duties without paying him off. Unlikely but we can dream.

As an aside he's not aged well at all has he Rooney. Looks at least 10 years older than his age.
