He's made several clear mistakes, but I honestly think it was partly from thinking the players were better than they were (now he's seen the light), and partly from trying something, anything to get a tune out of these shithouses.
He's shown an affinity with the fans that that Spanish prick could only dream of, but wouldn't. He's spoken so well of what this club is and should be.
With some of the deadwood off the wage bill this summer, I'm sure there'll be a bit of wiggle room for transfers, especially if one of the crown jewels is sold. I'm optimistic and excited to see who he can attract.
Not just that interview either, he's been classy throughout even when the going got really tough. His managerial career could have quite conceivably hit the rocks had we gone down but he never seemed desperate to deflect the blame as many others undoubtedly would have.
Who knows whether it will work out for either party but his connection to the fans is clear. The humility from such a highly decorated player is nice too.
I remember running down the steps at GP, roaring abuse at him for delaying the restart of play many years ago. Feel kinda bad about that now. Hopefully he won't remember
what a great guy ... beautiful person ... we are lucky to have him. IMO ...
