Said all I wanted to said. Considering the cumulative effect, Ole reign was the most damaging so far. Plus another 110m wasted buying players he can't or won't use (VDB and Sancho). If I recall he has the most/second most spending between any other managers in the league since his tenure. Our players have been too complacent under him because he is a nice guy who wanted to be liked by all players. Also handing all that garbage contract extensions really hurt us. Do people really think Ragnick in his first month will fix all this crap that has been done for 3 years ? We played like bunch of drunk people meeting for the first time in a sunday league match under Ole and it wont be easy to fix that.If it were just 3 years wasted, that would be one thing, but it’s so much more than that.
It’s subpar coaching in a phase of development that certain players desperately needed
It’s wasting 130 million on two players that will never be good enough for the club
It’s lowering standards and expectations around the whole club, giving jobs to underqualified mates and insisting with players that were never going to be good enough.
The damage is far greater than just wasting 3 years unfortunately. He has set us back a lot more than that and it should never have been allowed to happen.
