Yep, surprised it has passed without more comment really (or maybe I just missed it).
It feels good to break the managerial merry-go-round we've been on, even if results have been up and down (to say the least)
There was also the dodgy sponsorship deal. But I basically agree with you.
Imagine if Gao gave Alan Pardew an eight-year contract!
Or tried to rename the stadium. Or got us relegated twice. Or hired Joe Kinnear. Etc etc
