Would We Have Gone Down Under Gerrard?
« on: May 30, 2023, 06:26:23 PM »
Sliding doors moment at Fulham.  One of many dreadful performances under him.  Players clearly stopped trying.  I started his out thread after spurs at home last year.  The Bournemouth loss was as bad as anything I’ve seen in recent years.  So I’m voting yes.

It didn’t happen so we’ll never know. Our current alternate reality is much better to think about.

I only started this as I know someone who is still blaming the owners for not giving him enough money or time.  This isn’t me by the way!

Daft question as they'd never have allowed it to happen. Like they er, didn't.

Probably not because the teams who went down were very bad indeed, but it would have been a close call.

I like daft questions.  You know me well enough by now.

Far, far better managers than him have been in trouble this season. He should've been sacked the second he signed his contract.

Would we have won the title under Guardiola?

No. We would have won the league.

Would we have won the European Cup if Withe had shinned it wide?

I’d like to thank Gerrard for being so utter shit that the owner himself binned him right after the Fulham game and took it upon himself to get Emery. For that I will be eternally grateful. As I am to the cabbage and Whelan’s penalty miss that finally did in Steve Bruce

As disappointing as the end of last season was, I was prepared to let Gerrard have a crack over a whole season and I think that was the case for most of us on here. That start to the season really shocked me. I couldn't believe we were back to another bloody relegation battle. Personally I'd have sacked him after West Ham. It was only four games in but it was already looking bad and I never liked the prick anyway. I can understand why more time was given but those following couple of months were almost unrelentingly awful. Even the mini unbeaten run we went on was dire. I don't think I've ever been as nonplussed after a win than I was after that awful Friday night Southampton game. Fair play to the owners for acting when they did. It wasn't too late and they got the most important bit, the next appointment, absolutely spot on.

I thought he'd spend a couple of seasons doing just enough to avoid the sack while sucking all the positivity out of the club. I got that one wrong.
