Absolute effing disgrace!
I haven't posted for a while, but this has caused to come on and vent my anger.
And, to then apparently appoint
is the effing last straw.
TF needs HIS HEAD examining, and quickly.
Welcome back AR
I have read everything on this thread.
I think my problem is slightly less about sacking Holloway, (although I am unhappy about it) and more to do with
I see people have listed the end result of his last several appointments, sack , resigned, sack etc etc. That tells us nothing of the story. The fact is that as a no1 (manager) it has been a very long time since he has been successful.
In fact in real terms you have to go back 10yrs since
won the Dutch title with a very unfashionable team in Twente.
Since then he has at best limped along, mainly failing in the Championship. I am struggling to think of a manager that may even appear on a long list, let alone a short, who I would consider less for the job.
As I said on the other thread about him, his status as a boss has fallen off a cliff. We have no money, yet he takes the job because that is now where his apparent market is. For me his market should be as a 1st team coach, and if that was the case and there was someone above him as manager who knew what he was doing, I'd be ok.
As for Ollie, if we shrunk the league down to those teams who have spent nothing in transfer fees, then as far as I'm concerned not many managers have done better.
It takes some investment to get out the Championship these days and if you repeatedly invest nothing, then just below mid-table is acceptable.
Plus there were moments where a team was beginning to emerge and he was making progress. Unfortunately you need a 20+ goal striker to go up, and the fact is we can't afford one, under the circumstances Ollie did a good job.
