Wasn’t a massive fan of the Silva appointment but I quickly changed my tune.
In the first half of the season we saw a handful of performances that showed the seedlings of a way of playing that I genuinely think was the best and most exciting I’ve seen since Moyes. Granted that’s not saying much, but it’s true.
Yes things have dropped off a bit of a cliff since the derby but fuck me, how can fans have such little patience. You’re always going to get bad spells of form, especially this early in a new managers reign.
It may not work out with Silva, but putting pressure on him and the team at this stage - whether that’s from our fans or our well meaning but absolutely fucking clueless owner - serves no purpose but to make failure more likely.
Ease off, this is a nothing season, and barring a catastrophe let’s see where things are in a year.
