Won't be remembered with any fondness. An abrasive, cold manner is fine when you get results. The last three months have been some of the worst I've ever seen us play, and I've been a fan through Walker, Kendall mk3 and Smith. Tactically inept, glaring weaknesses all over the pitch, and an inability to fire up or build confidence in the players. Whatever he thinks of himself, he is not a top level manager by any stretch.

you mean refusing to sign a contract to play under a manager who was singling him out virtually every week even when he wasn't playing anywhere near as bad as other players?  who left it till march to get the contract offer to him 4 months after telling the media that barkley needed to "earn" it.

downing tools?  that would be a player who after looking that he had secured golden boot with Harry Kane injured scored played 4 games in a row in his flip flops.... then in the realisation that Kane plundered 4 goals against Leicester to go 2 goals ahead of him turned up to the dead rubber last game against Arsenal and put in a shift?  That's downing tools.

 

 

Lets see if he signs the contract now then.

I agree but Smith was torture ha ha

Had to happen didn't It? No choice really. I was clinging onto something happening, as in being turned around, but it was getting harder and harder to see game by game.

I was concerned by his post match interview yesterday. And then today, after getting mauled at home, I see he was out having a nice dinner with Pep in Manchester last night. I know there is still life to live, but come on.

Adding it all up, he seemed over confident in such circumstances to the point of coming across as not arsed.

The club went for someone who had a more strict approach than the previous guy but it seemed to have got to his head and he may be went too far.

I'm glad it's over now. Move onto the next guy. And the club has sent a strong message...no more settling for mediocre performances. We want to be challenging the best and whoever comes in next knows this isn't a holiday. No more 2 or 3 chances.

My guess is Unsy will take charge for the Chelsea game (queue a change in the players spirits and performance). Then if he wins or draws and wins the Leicester game id imagine he will stay on until at least January.

Dreading who we appoint next if I'm honest.

I just had an awful thought... Walsh may want to reunite Shakespeare and Pearson. I suppose they were the foundations that set up Leicester’s title winners but it wouldn’t be a popular suggestion with most.

But he didn't do so well the first year if you ask me. Never wanted him, never liked him, never saw him as big-club potential.

I'm very pleased that the club has reacted to his poor performance.

Now let's get some confidence into the team.

Koeman had too much arrogance. He thought he was bigger than the club. Seem more like a dictator.... Banning Niasse without giving him a chance to prove is a No No for me.Ironically, Niasse saved his ass few weeks back i guess..Maybe there was a silent revolt by the players over many weeks, if not, no way, the players turn bad over night and play without drive,determination or fire.... Yes,Koeman left, now let's look ahead...

It will be Unsworth for now and I think he’ll do well. Temporarily.  Still need a permanent appointment New Year or Summer. 

If he does well why would we want to change him:huh:?

My Koeman Haiku:

 

Head like a bread loaf

Loved ten so much he bought three

Only got nine matches

 

Sorry it didn't work out Ronnie, but you were badly caught out. Looks like you were out stepping stone and not vice versa.

Niasse is nowhere good enough and Barkley has hardly progressed after year 2 of Martinez's reign to now. I guess I can't blame Niasse for not being good enough but Barkley has himself as much to blame as any manager for his situation. All the players need to be held accountable. Now that the manager has changed, that excuse has gone for the players.

Barkley had a decent season for us.  Koeman was constantly getting on his back.

I don't blame Barkley .. koeman clearly has a way of operating which is very divisive.

I don't see how having a manager who coddles Ross and tells him how great he is is going to improve his decision-making or his defensive contributions. Ross isn't immune from the manager riding him, same goes for any other player.

Ross is no longer a wonderkid, he's a well-capped Premier League player, he can take criticism. If one thing is clear, he's now just another PL player, no longer a future world beater.

I believe Koeman worked with the signings that came in. Whether they were all sanctioned by him no one will ever know.

He tried to make us more expansive by playing three at the back and changed players accordingly throughout each game to give us more of an edge.

All in all he was a good reactive manager to situations but I think his biggest downfall was... Not being able to deal with attitudes. This day in age you have to use Martinez's arm to put round them and keep the cane locked away.

I think he lost them and couldn't get them back in the end.

You are missing the point.

Barkley was getting ridden when no other player was.... he was highest chance creating/assisting player. Koeman was picking on him.

Something is wrong with a fanbase that shows such contempt and disrespect for those who chose to manage our club. 

I'll never celebrate us being relegation fodder and the manager getting the sack. Right move, still a sad day for the club.

Can imagine a pint with you guys.... a laugh a minute!

Tell ya what pal. When you walk into work tomorrow and they tell you you haven't got a job on Wednesday then come back on here and tell me. I'll be waiting to laugh my arse off at you.

Difference is we normal blokes don't get a pay off for getting the sack for doing a shit job.

Koeman will get his contract paid up and be back in a job within 6 months earning more millions.

Stop trying to be the sensitive, sensible, heart warming type...we know you too well and it doesn't suit you.

Fair enough, have your laughs everyone!

We never lost our humour while at war, we won't lose our humour when someone loses their job and gains £6 - £10 million.

It's not laughing at the situation. Or directly at the man. It's a picture. It's humour.

Fair enough. I guess we all handle shocking disappointment differently.
