Delima Posted May 3, 2007 Share Posted May 3, 2007 Assuming Sam Allardyce is indeed appointed as our new manager ... 1. How much time are you willing to give him before you demand success? 2 years at least. Allardyce has got ample track record for me to judge and believe that he is one of the managers who could steer our club towards the right direction. Even if in these 2 years we are just struggling about midtable like SBR's first 2 years. 2. What's the target you set for him? Establishing the club as a firm top 6 club. 3. If we play ugly, but get results, are you happy? If we play ugly, yet results are not good, will you still be happy? I don't care whether we are aesthetically pleasing, as long as we get results. I won't slate Allardyce just because his team play ugly. As long as the team is forward minded (even long ball forward), like Bolton. 4. If Sam Allardyce decides to pick a fight (verbal or whatever) with someone (FA, Arsene Wenger, Roy Keane, Freddy Shepherd), will you support him? No, never like anyone picking a fight with someone else. But enjoy such entertainments as always. 5. Will you applaud the board if the appointment of Sam Allardyce turns out to be a good one, eventually? No. The board have messed up too often too frequent. If Sam is good, it is the Law of Average. If Sam is bad, it is the Law of Stupid Shepherd. 6. Will you slag the board, if the appointment of Sam Allardyce turns out to be a sad tradegy? Yes. Throughout the years we have had 7. If Sam Allardyce turns out to be a success, will you gloat that you have always wanted him to be our manager? No, I have always prefered someone else (Le Guen, Hughes, Keane, Boothroyd, Lippi, Sachi) to Allardyce. Allardyce would be a decent choice I am more than happy with with but I still won't take the credit for "recommending" him. 8. If Sam Allardyce does not turn out to be a success, will you gloat that you have always NOT wanted him to be our manager? No, as I said, I am happy with the appointment of Sam Allardyce. Not my favourite but I don't dislike him. 9. Does it matter if Allardyce's recruitments are mainly foreigners, regardless if he delivers results? As long as his recruitment doesn't come at the expense of our academy, it doesn't matter. I am neither racist, nor nationalist. 10. Will you be happy to trust the club's sizable (assumption) on Allardyce's hand? Yes. Link to post Share on other sites More sharing options...
