I agree but tbf to Emery “slowly” isn’t giving him enough credit really, he managed to get us a tidy 7th place finish in expected points last season, gotta give credit where credit’s due, it’s been a rather streamlined process into Burnleyhood.
Yep. I can’t think of a top club in the world who wouldn’t have fired their manager under the same circumstances. Maybe United but then they are the one top club you absolutely don’t want to be compared to in terms of their sporting directive/club level operations and can throw a fuckload more money and status at the problem than we can besides.
We’re descending incredibly quickly into Spurs Villas Boas/Tim Sherwood/musical chairs of shit managers era level of club. The type that you question a non-football hipster in my country about and they say ahh yeah that’s an english club isn’t it?
And there’s really only one explanation, the one that was likely all along: idiotic and illogical (with apologies to @Forever ) hires don’t just happen by accident: they happen by idiotic and illogical people, people with track records too of doing other idiotic and illogical things, who are hired by people who also do idiotic and illogical things like hire said people.
And idiotic and illogical people don’t like to admit their mistakes until they absolutely have to.
