How you feeling about Moyes now?
I’m sure Pulis is ready to put his cap back on as I expect Swansea or Stoke to panic and get him, so we’d get another new manager bounce. Everybody up to Watford and Everton are still in it. Watford should be worried as they leak goals for fun especially at home.
Find it strange that Benitez is getting no stick. Yeah the Newcastle squad is abysmal. But Brighton and Huddersfield squad is hardly better. Carragher called him a champions league level manager, so surely he can more out of his players. Brighton and Huddersfield manager seem to do so.
I feel like a bit of a banana split for despairing at his appointment, but then again, few thought it would be a good idea. More than that, it makes me feel a lot more down on Bilic considering how much I liked him despite his appalling management of the team over the last 18 months he was there. We now look fit, organised and like we actually have a clue. So, yeah. Moyes in!
I find UK and Americans tend to look at this with different eyes to many other countries where this type of thing is still relatively common, even in Australian sporting crowds. Watch the darts when they go to Europe for example or when they come here to Alexandra Palace - you'll see stuff like Mr T. I've also seen it sporadically in cricket and tennis crowds.
Less culturally advanced on the matter than the UK and America (in the sense we'd do it and know it's innaproproate, whereas I'm not sure many Europeans do).
