Mummy, mummy, diamonds, I want them too

Quick google tells me Solari got 4+ months at RM. In a league with a money doped Pep City, a Klopp Liverpool and a money doped Chelsea he had an above expected turnaround first half season, 3rd and 2nd place two full seasons. Results wise he did alright up to this last few weeks/months. In the day to day it's hard to say, but he kept the job for a long time under high pressure. I'm sure some will think this guy might know somethingNot saying that he would never be able to (he needs only one offer of almost 100 clubs after all), but there is a difference between Ole and most managers with unsuccessful spells at big clubs. Most got those gigs on the back of success elsewhere - so a smaller club can look beyond the failure at big club and say "ok he is not good enough for United/Barca etc but he showed that he is good at around our level so he could recreate it". Ole got United job after actually failing at lower level. So he would be perceived as a lot higher risk than the likes of Moyes and even Lampard. He is more comparable to someone like Solari, who managed to get a job only in Mexico after RM.
