More like Souness! Or getting dangerously close to it. They say he was the one who truly ruined Liverpool.Well we were developing for the long term this time last year and we were 6th. We were developing for the long term 2 years ago and we were 2nd. I sense a trend here...
Nobody wants him to fail, people just see the writing on the wall. There's no evidence he will ever be up to the level of what a United manager should be. I'm all for backing the project when there is a clear plan in place, but with Ole it's nothing more than blind faith.
Keegan got Newcastle promoted and nearly won the Premier League title. Dalglish won Liverpool 3 league titles and won one for Blackburn too. They both actually had managerial credentials. Ole isn't comparable. It's the same as the Fergie comparisons, "well he started poorly" yeah, but he'd still won league and European trophies for Aberdeen (still the last time someone stopped Celtic/Rangers) Klopp is often compared to Ole, "he finished 8th in his first season" again, he'd taken Dortmund to successive Bundesliga titles (still the last time someone stopped Bayern) and a CL final. They both had credentials.
Anyone who is backing Ole at this point is showing blind faith. His record is unacceptable. Worse than Moyes, worse than LVG, worse than Mourinho. He is to us what Hodgson was to Liverpool.
