I think FSG on the matter of manager have got it right. I know that will not sit well with most on here but the blinkers are off.
hey have not been rash, they have allowed Kenny a season in which he has not moved us forward one bit and the players bought have failed. People on here claimed from when we won the League Cup that the games meant nothing, how wrong could one be. If Kenny had shown any sort of improvement in that time he may still have a job. Instead we were ran over by bottom of the league teams, showing no fight or desire. That was Kenny’s main selling point he was a good man manger.
I think the players need to look at themselves also. I know on here people do not like to be critical but a significant number of our regular starters have been very poor. Pepe and Stevie to name two.
I know it’s said a lot but there would be no discussion required about this sacking if it was any other manager. FSG have took that stance, and like me have seen nothing to suggest Kenny can progress us. People may live in hope and dream that Kenny can but when you look at the way we have been since Christmas there is not one bit of evidence that he can.
I am defending FSG on this matter alone, and do not want to discuss other issues relating to them as we can all agree that they have alot to prove.
So lets hope they make another right decision in who they employ next.
I can't believe you were so patient. I hope you don't give the next fella 18 months, if he balls things up as badly as that last duffer did.
Get hold of yerselves. FSG have shown their hand. It has just proved 2 things... They don't know what they're doing. They don't give a fuck. This club is nothing but an investment to them.
They acquired it an even worse manner than H&G. It was nothing but a leveraged buy out, that we caused. Yep. They got the club for buttons because we forced 2 American asset strippers out. They are no better. In fact, we at least knew what we were dealing with when H&G were here. We had the moral and legal right to fight back. We haven't even got that now, because we welcomed these people with open arms. What have they done since?
Well, firstly they met with Shanklyboy, VDM and Andy. Them lads arranged a meeting between Henry and SOS. Henry promised to keep dialogue open. They've said fuck all ever since. I don't think fans should run clubs, but these people are only the asset holders. They have done nothing to gain our trust.
They have invested next to nothing. They've just let the club reinvest assets the club has made. I'm not completely sure of the numbers, but I think they have a net spend of something like 23 million.
I can hear the replies coming now... Kenny wasted it. I actually seen one beaut on here saying, he hoped they didn't invest any money. What the fuck. I can't even comprehend that sort of thinking. The fact is, the signings never lived up to expectations this season. That happens. We bought a great centre forward from the North East once before. He took 18 months to settle, but when he did, he became one of the greatest left sided midfielders I've ever seen in my life, Ray Kennedy. That's how football is. It takes time. It took Ray time to settle into a great side. Our club has been in turmoil. It wasn't going to become a world beater over night.
All dominant football teams take time to build. That's proven fact. Even the ultra rich Chelsea and City had to build towards winning titles. It didn't just happen by spending a few bob.
I can hear them now.... but we might have feel further behind City and Chelsea. Fucking spare me, eh. If Dalglish had been given another year and failed, we wouldn't have been any further behind them than we are now. But as it is, they have now set us back yet again. How long will the next fella get to implement his five year plan... 18 fucking months won't hack it, that's for sure.
No fuck FSG. They've shown their hand and just proved they haven't got a clue nor do they give a fuck. Never mind the emotional issues of sacking Kenny. They have shown they do not understand the game. But more worringly, who's to say what their future intentions are... the ground issues gone awfully quiet. And I could go on, but what's the point. Most people on here are only interested in trophies. They want their demands met because they are tired of their Man United supporting workmates crowing. The club means nothing more to them than that. Henry is no different, except he gets to count our money. Well, he can go fuck himself. He's getting none of mine.
Before somebody states their opinion in response, I'm giving you fair warning... I lost family and friends at Hillsborough. I was in America at the time. I couldn't get home. Kenny went to their funerals on my behalf. John Henry didn't even have the respect to go the memorial service. Don't dare defend this decision to me. They are only here for the money. They didn't even give Kenny the respect of a position inside the club. They just announced they were tossing him aside like a pair of aul socks. Fuck them. They will not be seeing one penny or any respect from me.
