My general (although scientifically-inexact) rule of thumb to supporting a manager is that in his first year, he gets my full unequivocal trust (unless he goes totally insane and sells the entire squad and replaces them with a collection of small woodland mammals). The second season is when I expect to see consistent signs of improvement, and the third season is when I expect the club to be at its strongest.

I think thats a pretty reasonable timeline in this day and age.   i suppose my only addition is that you would also have to allow for a 'dip' season around year six. but  apart from that its trophies trophies trophies.....

Next one will, I think. But hard to write like that and keep it so it makes sense. Not my style, I guess. Still, won't hurt to give it a go. Short words for small minds  ;D

Try giving your work a readability index rating... if you're that concerned about the (minority of) more monosyllabic denizens of this site, that is...  ;)

What a perfectly cromulent suggestion :)
"All the lads have been talking about is walking out in front of the Kop, with 40,000 singing 'You'll Never Walk Alone'," Collins told BBC Radio Solent. "All the money in the world couldn't buy that feeling," he added.

By laughing!  ;D

Ultimately if people can't be bothered to read what I write - then don't! No real need for them to say so, but if they do, so be it. I can't be responsible for people having A.D.D.!

lovely read Paul

My only gripe is that Rafa set himself up to be shot down this week with his comments post Burnley.

Saying that 4th place was more important
( and it is for him, to have the money to fund his team next year), but only to lose in that fashion reflected badly on a couple of choices for me. Namely Warnock and Riise that way round. Having Didi/Sami/Pelle, all slow men defending the box when we've been caught on the break by them last season....

Otherwise once again I agree with your excellent thread - but like you I am a long termer...

And he failed to deliver 4th place that year  :no

Aye well.  Nobody's entirely perfect.  Tho' in the case of Rafa and Kenny they come pretty damn close.

But immerse yourself in this. Oh shite.  I can't call it up.  Wait one......

I tried being reasonable.  I didn't like it.  Old enough to know better.  Young enough not to give a fuck.

Ah yes.   Oh for the intellectual and well considered comment of happy days long gone by.  Thank Christ.   ::)
