A very fine point you make. I used to cling on to the stability in football management but after Moyes my opinions have changed a lot.Why? It's the way football should work. If a manager is doing shit you sack him, if a manager who did well has stagnated and is now doing shit sack him and go again.
The obsession with managerial stability in this country is weird, I'd say sticking with underperforming managers out of desperation for stability is actually the most unstable way to run a football club. I mean if you can find a Fergie or pre 2006 Wenger then brilliant, but you shouldn't be sticking with the wrong man because of some misguided moral duty.
No one has a problem with being ruthless with players who have declined or ain't good enough but whenever a manager gets the same treatment it's apparently crime of the century.
chelsea few years ago destroyed the myth of stability in England. They kept changing managers and winning stuff while the riots in media talked about how bad it is and how you have to have stability. Nothing worse than sticking with the wrong manager. The likes of Moyes and Emery are perfect exampleA very fine point you make. I used to cling on to the stability in football management but after Moyes my opinions have changed a lot.
I'm always a bit bemused when there's an outcry after a manager has been sacked, people act like someone's passed away, it's very odd. At the end of the day they get paid off and go pick up a job somewhere else.
Dear God! I hope they let Graham Taylor rest in peace!When I saw this bump I read it as.. 'Watford sack Quique Sachez Flores, bring back Javi Gracia'
That's probably what will happen. Be funny if they carry on the backwards trend and reappoint Silva, Materazzi etc.
Is it any surprise? There are two threads on here at the moment dedicated to seriously debating replacing Guardiola at City. I wonder how many people just look at the results and then make up what happened and how many actually bother to do some additional research. Sadly for Watford fans, their club actually seems to be run by people like that.Are managers not allowed anymore to have 1 period of bad form?
they are running Watford to the ground? Their owners is the only reason they Been in the pl for so longI actually quite like Watford as a team. But I honestly want them to get relegated - their board needs a massive fecking wakeup call. They are running Watford into the fecking ground, bizarre decision making over and over again.
This saga wth Flores is definitely the maddest managerial situation I can remember.
Cheeky £30m bid for Doucoure for United please. Would immediately be our best (available) midfielder and an excellent option for the squad.
