Same. Never saw the fuss. Got some decent results with Hull but I don't think they did it playing particularly good football. He got that Hull side pretty well drilled in the dark arts. They became masters of diving and time wasting all of a sudden. They were awful to watch.They got him in the end, but it will be interesting to see if it was all worth it. Very skeptical about this guy myself.
Didn't he make Hull somewhat defensively solid? I didn't see a lot of his Watford tenure but I know how it was to an extent.This will not end well. He'll have them scoring more but he has a lot of ponderous cloggers there, they won't be playing dashing football without serious investment. Poor defenders + New manager who can't defend = disaster.
Pickford's gonna be making 10 saves a game. Silva will be sacked by around Feb with them in the bottom half of the table, around 12th-14th.
If LvG got us fourth in 15/16, would you have wanted to keep him?I hope he gets Everton relegated. It would be what they deserve after their treatment of Allardyce after rescuing them this season.
LVG also single handedly dismantled a title winning squad and replaced them with sh!te we're still to this day struggling to give away for free.If LvG got us fourth in 15/16, would you have wanted to keep him?
There are ways to achieve goals, and Allardyce's style of play and brash arrogance did not set well with them, as LvG's similar qualities did not set well with us.
Yep I agree with you. His face fits. Young, stylish foreign manager who had a decent spell in the PL about a year ago. He probably deserves a pop at a bigger club like Everton but this next 12 months will make or break his PL career.
