We'd have destroyed him at that stage, or at least set his career back significantly. Smart move.

Glad we're well past it.

Interesting some of the names mentioned there.

Moyes actually got sacked by Real Sociedad two weeks later in November 2015 so we'd have probably gone for him if he'd left earlier. Would've been seen as very underwhelming appointment but he's done very well at West Ham in two seperate spells so shown he's far from finished.

Always admired Lucien Favre. Didn't quite work out for him at Dortmund but did excellent jobs at similar sized clubs to us at Nice and 'Gladbach.

One thing I can't quite get, where the hell was this managerial ambition from Lerner in summer 2010 and 2011? I mean we were still finishing 6th and 9th in those times yet look at who we went after, british based or past it.

We finally started going after decent managers when we were rock bottom and all but relegated.

Everything was wrong at that point in time and I doubt any manager would've made much difference.  But, Garde was utterly shite.

Looks like he's dumping the whole blame on Garde. No mention of how crap the previous managers were or the standard of players he inherited.

Garde never had a chance.....but it's not like in last 5 years he's proved everyone wrong like many of the players in that team did like Gana, Veretout etc.

He went to what MLS and lasted a few months and don't think he's even managing now.
