Like I said earlier, impossible to judge yet on his current tenure. 1st game of the season - home to Arse, 2nd away to City. Throw in away to Brum, and us (only handy was home to WBA) and you really could not ask for a worse set of fixtures.
If this was our 1st 5 games there would be uproar, stating we have been hard done by, and everyone else gets an easier set to begin.
And as for Brwned comments that he is not a good manager. That is bullshit. He has proved himself around the World that he is (with the exception of his 2nd season with Blackburn).
As Dumpster mentioned above, for a big club with no cash, you would be hard pushed to find anyone better to get them through this current situation.
