Speaking to fans of other clubs and snippets from the media we're starting to be seen as a "careful what you wish for" fan base. From the outside we're seen as turning on Martinez despite what he did in the first season, turning on Koeman despite us getting 7th the season before and not so much turning on Allardyce but never wanting him in the first place. Now there's some rumblings already about Silva so we're starting to be seen as a very impatient fanbase who don't give anyone a chance and after the last few days it's understandable to see. I have my reservations about some aspects of Silva but the moans were there in pre season and have carried on into the season, it's almost like some people revel in it and are just relentlessly negative about every aspect of the club both on and off the pitch and it's certainly disappointing to see how quickly things have turned this season already, although I'm not convinced there was every a big air of positivity about this season anyway. As someone said earlier, it's almost like we're waiting for something to go wrong so that we can have a go rather than be encouraged by something decent happening.
It's easy straight after a poor result or two to look at everything negatively but we need to give Silva and Brands more than just a few months to sort things out. The whole of last season was a mess, right from the start of the transfer window until the final kick of the season and that's not going to be sorted over night. The summer transfer window turned out not too bad in the end but we've two players who haven't featured, one's had half a game and one's been suspended for three games so we've not been anywhere near getting out best team out on the park. There are issues and I'm sure they're working to address them, moaning about the same things week in week or booing the players off (and sometimes on!) isn't going to change it though, sometimes we need to look at the bigger picture rather than everything in isolation.
