I still believe he overachieved and had one bad summer. He saved us from relegation, we had two cup finals, and he had us as high as third in the league, all while trying to rebuild every season. He brought in millions in transfer fees and the club dept was paid off. I’m really struggling to see how much more he could have done. Many games could have gone either way and I believe that given the transfer window he would have turned it around. However he had clearly had enough and that’s fine by me, a few on here wanted him out for years so are clearly happy. There is a different atmosphere but that’s not unusual with a new manager, let’s hope that continues. I obviously liked him, I thought he gave everything for the club, had that passion and clearly worked well with many players given they were often keen to return. Maybe he genuinely felt he had done as much as he could, and you’re correct that there is a lifespan for any manager at a club but I also wonder at times just what would make some of the fanbase happy under any manager, it seems to me at times that nothing is good enough, if we get to a final it’s a failure to lose to a club that has an individual player that cost more than our entire squad. If we finish third it’s a false position and we should not celebrate it because we were lucky the season ended early and we would obviously have lost every remaining game. I’ve always a glass half full guy, loved finishing third, loved the two cup runs, and loved taking many bigger clubs to the cleaners at times. I’ve nothing but admiration for the guy even though ( and this may come as a shock to some) he’s not my mate, I don’t worship him as a god, and never even met him in person.
