Like the vast majority, I was enthused and excited at the prospect of OGS but this quickly turned from elation to deflation! My own take in this is despite what many are saying and who they are blaming is, I think he bottled it, he was told we would be talking to others first which he was happy with until it all blew up.
Then the offer doesn’t arrive as quick as he’d like so he starts to worry if it’s coming at all? Does he take a chance and hang on in hope and risk a real back lash if it doesn’t come, or does he back track before things get too bad? The latter I believe and he prob got a better deal out of it too. I don’t blame him or us, just one if those things.
Next we look at who else is out there and you really have to question where our next manager will come from??? It’s not looking rosey, however it amazes me how our 80 odd % of positive fans have largely turned against the RL and PF all of a sudden. I’m sure this time we will get the right man, maybe not the best man but none the less the right one!
I’m not a great advocate of RL or PF and especially after the last appointment, however they know they need to get it right and I truly believe they will. Not because they are great but because they can’t afford not too.
As a fan base we need to get behind the club and remember it can not be as bad as last season, the only way is up now I think.
Lots of people are talking about who they do and don’t want and to be honest there was a little Italian guy who I hoped we would go for last time and I’d like us to look at him this time but he’s only been mentioned as a tag along with Gus Poyet. To be fair a team of Poyet and Zola would suit me down to the ground, considering what the remit is and what’s available.
Zola was harshly treated by West Ham and i feel his footballing philosophy and connections could serve us well. But its not me hiring so what i think doesnt matter. Whatever and who ever arrives though it will be better than before and I will support them fully, it would just be nice if more of us showed that support also.
What is it people say about a positive mental attitude? And at the minute I’d like to be glass half full. That’s my random thoughts and rant so let me finish with a rallying cry for next season UTV
