He did the job he was asked to do. The plan was always to keep him until the summer. He was able to force Moshiri's hand due to our desperation in November, and managed to wrangle another 12 months pay out of us – basically a 6 million pound bonus for keeping us up. A fairly insignificant price to pay when Moshiri & co (and a substantial part of the fan base) obviously had genuine fears of relegation.
Did what was asked of him, but never a solution beyond this season.
Fair play to him for guiding us to safety, but that doesn't change the fact that he's a loathful character and one of the last people in football we should allow our great (once) name to be associated with.
