To be a manager, any manager, anywhere you need to be able to ‘man’-age. That means communicate effectively and obtain buy-in or at least respect from your staff of your philosophies.
If you can’t do the above you can still buy good players, bring through youth, implement a new footballing style, etc etc... all commendable attributes. But let’s be honest here, if you ignore your players, disrespect them and can’t make them buy into a philosophy after months of them trying, you’re not really managing.
Right now we’ve got a manager that the players at the moment are backing and the team spirit is a different world from where it was 15 games ago.
If the helicopter hadn’t gone down I genuinely believe he’d have been sacked after the West Ham game.
