It has reached a breaking point where I'm guessing 90% or more of the fan base is scanning the news every day in the hope of reading that Koeman has gone. We are in a mess of Koeman's own making and I really don't think he knows how to get us out of it.

Nothing interesting here, it's all known already, and it's just a matter of time before Koeman is sacked.
He could of course do the right thing, and resign before being sacked, but he won't. He has never accepted accountability for his tactical and man-management shortcomings, instead blaming other factors. The classic signs of a bad manager in any profession, diverting blame onto others.

We don't and we do.

Before we start flying banners, consider the following.
In 1995 Joe Royle managed our last trophy winning side, beating Man Utd in the FA cup.
No manager since has come anywhere near repeating that.
My point is, what stops us from reaching the dizzy heights again? It can't be all down to the managers. There's a missing element that stops us going forward.
If it's money, Leicester disproved that theory.
Howard Kendall got it right (eventually). What was his secret?
The current silence from the board is deafening!
I don't know the answer, but whatever it is, it's one hell of a coincidence that we have gone this long without success.

He joined our party in a London ale house one time after recognising one of the lads. He is a former Scottie Roader who knew lots of the families and friends of people in the group. He was sports editor of The Times, knew his stuff. had contacts and inside knowledge, We were impressed. He seemed to be one of that very rare breed, a decent Kopite (Be fair, most of us have met one)
Within an hour everyone was sick to death of him. A smug, One night in Istanbul, Badge wearing , Sweep it under the carpet, Count the stars, Anthem singing, fucker. How he got out of there with the arse of his kecks and the back of his collar in tact remains a mystery.
Don't buy this smug fuckers sympathy to our plight, don't be fooled by his sincerity. He is like the rest of them. He knows they're shite, so he is turning his attention to us and is taking great delight in watching us struggle.

They are a horrible breed. The patronising ones are the worse of the lot.
