Fair point and I said that some were a success and some weren't and that the successful ones had a pedigree.At the time it felt unfathomable that we could attract someone of Robbo’s ilk and stature. It felt ambitious and exciting. We even beat Wolves for his signature.
McClaren, number 2 for Sir Alex at Man United. Huge regard within the game as a top coach.
Karanka, number 2 to Jose at Real Madrid. Managed Spain youth teams. Again, well respected.
You’re seriously comparing those to Southgate and more importantly to Jonathon PowerPoint Village Woodgate? At least Southgate has intelligence and is articulate. Nobody in their right mind would hire Mr PowerPoint.
However I do admire Gibson for having the guts to back people who he must have faith in, after all it is his money that he gambles with.
It would be great for it to come off, but for the fans disappointing when it doesnt. We dont have the finances to employ the best or even second best so we have to take some gambles. However delighted that we now have Warnock.
