Agreed on this. I'm pleased that Benitez has started well, but...
...if Ancelotti had stayed then I still think we would have continued to improve under him and maybe would have spent more on reinforcements as well (recruitment and appointment of a new manager and his team costs a fair amount I'm sure) plus of course, the James situation would be very different.
Ancelotti's departure was clearly unexpected and it seems that the whole direction of the club has changed to "stick rather than twist" as a result of that.
It might turn out OK for us, but that doesn't mean it will automatically be an improvement on what we might have achieved if Ancelotti had stayed - we'll never know that.
I'd rather die with our history than live with theirs...
