I didn't mind when Benitez left, and I still wouldn't if we had gotten a coach better than Roy. But the appointment of Roy symbolises a lot that's crap with the club and little that is good.
Yes you already had a manager who could guarentee that. Shame he was waving his cock to every chairman in Europe because your clubs a mess. Shame no one of equal skill would take the job, because your clubs a mess. Roys the only bugger in the world with a CV past '4 seasons on FM2010' who'll manage you, because your clubs a mess.
It was either spend £8m on a downgrade, or spend nothing, keep a coach who doesnt want to be there, watch the players performances get even worse because of it, and lose even more revenue as you slip down the league.
Now when your shiny new saviours take over the club, come back and talk about Pelligrini, until then, tough.
