I don't think people despise him because he's not a good football manager....(nt)
Until Brands/Covid/The FA/Moshiri pulled the rug from under him.
Bought a seriously competitive midfield for less than the price of Sigurdsson.
Got a point-amassing creative master for free.
Saved Pickford from imminent Joe Hartery and turned him (back) into a primo goalkeeper.
Bought Godfrey - or if you think, accurately by all accounts, that was Brands - got him playing well.
Turned DCL from a willing runner into an international class goal machine.
That's over half your team right there - for an outlay of c£60m.
Admittedly he never bought the nonpareil Andros Townsend.
