I am all for giving new blood a chance, otherwise you dont know what potential they have. You have to look at it objectively weighing up his actions and words over time. If he is consistent and you see them sticking to their philosophy, seeing some development over time you give him more time. We seem to have gone backwards on and off thenpitch unfortunately so the price must be paid by him. The next long term guy might get similar results but I might see a system and development on and off the pitch that would make me accept poor results. I suppose we are all different.
No, he didn't plan to fail, his plan failed. The result of his failed plan is Woodgate being in charge of our football club and a new plan with him at the helm, a plan which many here seem to agree was destined to fail.
Woodgate isn't the 'project manager' at all. He picks the team, he decides the tactics, he does not decide how to run this football club.
A project evolves from a business plan, not beliefs. A business plan involves milestones to gage progress against expectation and forecasting. What you are stating is SG planned to fail which I don’t believe. Woody is the project Manager, no one else, he MUST be held accountable.
