Our form is forcing NESV's hand but, as much as is possible, they should be left to make THEIR decisions THEIR way. I trust that they know (or are learning) their stuff - their approach with the Red Sox is exactly the kind of strategic approach we need.
We had a world class manager in Rafa and fucked him utterly by forcing him to make ridiculous compromises at every turn. I hope and think that we now have world class owners, and I don't want us to make that same mistake again. No more compromise, and if that means being patient (and, sadly, numb) for a while longer, if that means swallowing it and getting in a couple of 'Roy' type players to keep us safe from relegation while NESV get things right off the pitch then I can definitely live with it.
The more time they have to make this decision, the more they are able to do it the way they want to, the more chance there is they'll get it right, the better it is for us long term. Because that's what this is all about - we finally have owners capable of thinking long term, I even think we have owners who are (from what I can tell) a lot cleverer in terms of strategy than anyone else in what is a pretty luddite league.
The absolute LAST thing we need at this stage is another fuck up. Once again though, I'd like to thank Purslow for his magnificent footballing legacy to the club. Look on your works, ye mighty, and despair.
One thing I do know for sure though - sacking Hodgson on the basis of 'well anyone could do better' is exactly the wrong thing to do. We already tried that, and it turned out that anyone was a total disaster.
