He did seem to lose his way but let's not forget that his hands were tied to an extent by what he inherited, what he was forced to get rid of and the money (or lack of) that he was given to work with. I'd like to see any other manager make a team out of the likes of Gladwin and Emmanuel Thomas. IN fairness he got Polter, Luongo, Karl Henry, Shodipo and Hall playing very well.
He had a full pre-season, results & performances were not improving.

But let's not kid ourselves we all know full well the undercover report was the end of him!
Certainly seemed to produce what i still consider an unreasonable and over the top response from yourself, not sure everyone that matters would have had the same opinion, but I guess the vocal fans got their wish, however the sacking still hasn't actually achieved anything notable yet.

I spoke to him for quite a long time when he was over in Holland for the pre-season. He really does have a good knowledge of the game and his ideas of how he wanted to play were completely different from what we saw on the pitch. So either he couldn't get it across to the players or the players couldn't execute what was asked of them. I tend to think that a bit of both were true.

We stayed up I see that as an achievement, Ollie took over a right shambles of a team devoid of any self confidence & direction.

I'm not so certain JFH would have kept us up, but I guess we'll never know.

Like you say it must have been a majority decision both vocally from fans & in the boardroom.

So I guess I wasn't alone in wanting a change.

I liked Hasselbaink as a pick and thought he should have stayed. But ultimately it's his job to communicate the tactics and to pick tactics that suit the players. Of course, with more time he might have got them there.

I really don't think Holloway deserves any credit for keeping us up, those were disastrous runs of form, the latter noteworthy for the utterly bizarre tactics and team selections. We were not that bad a squad of players. Hopefully, this season is completely different, it's started with some promise that we might again find ourselves snuggled into mid table mediocrity.

I certainly missed him when Holloway was going on long runs of losses.

Some people will always find it easier to see the world as black or white. Same as it ever was.
