Rightly or wrongly Ancelotti talked about getting into Europe and then the top 4.
He failed on Europe this season and landed 10th, albeit with 59points.
This would be saying, top half is fine, Europe a bonus.
It would be an uninspired appointment signalling a drop in ambition in the immediate term.
I wouldn't have wanted Moyes back but I think he'd have been a better appointment.
It's not a disaster, but it's not exactly saying ok we can take on Spurs and Arsenal and have a real crack at getting up there.
If it happens I hope I'm wrong, just feels like settling.
