The more I think about it, the more I am quietly pleased with this appointment. Granted it is not the big name that we all wanted e.g. AVB, Rangnick, Ranieri but I'd much rather have a coach who perhaps is a little under the radar with something to prove to himself and the rest of the footballing world, someone who is comitted to wanting to be our head coach over someone like Ranieri or Rangnick who was clearly holding out for a better deal.
Its the same with players, we got rid of the likes of Koumas and Davies who didn't want to play and replaced them with players who did. Can any of you say you were excited when we announced signings like Billy Jones and Gareth McCauley whilst them lot down the road were splashing the cash on defenders? We have produced suprises time and time again and there is more reason to be be optimistic about this appointment than there is to be negative about it.
