Trouble is if we get Europe, ( incredible to even think that after this season ) does that mean Allardyce stays, can we sack him, seriously ?
We get to 7th, Allardyce and Walsh are bombed off. A new clued up DoF is appointed and a modern manager
Honestly, thereís a massive disconnect between expectations on here around the chances of SA being fired and the reality.He was already talking yesterday about making plans for next season. There is no appetite at the top of the club to fire SA if meets or exceeds their expectations. Which he will.
We should be 'aiming' for 12 points from those. We won't get 12, but theres not a game there we shouldnt be going out to win.
Thats the difference between 'should' and 'will' though. We should be setting out to win the games. Allardyce won't do that because;A)It's not in his interest not to drag out getting to 40 pointsB)He's a shithouse still thinking he's managing SunderlandIf he doesnt think we'll get 7th right now then he'll carry on with going for the home games and trying to kill the aways. If he says we're going for 7th and doesnt get it then he's failed. If he drags it out making it look hard then he can keep up with his 'Well Everton have been shite away from home long before i got here...' spiel as an excuse.
But again you don't see the woods for the trees....Sam doesn't believe in youth any kid worth his salt would want out....you could say contrary judging by this season here but ... if BFS had any choice none of the kids would've got a look in.
We're not going to get any higher than seventh for the foreseeable future so if Sam delivers it he should at least get another season.
I just think its an albatross round your neck and we have enough of a mess to sort out and players coming off the back of the World Cup . We need to get a decent start in the league without the distraction of qualifying for the Europe Group stages .
We appeared to have done that this season but ended up coming on our own face . It is one thing sounding like a big club and another one acting like one . We are a long way off in so many ways .
