Yes   he was worse than Lamberk.

The way he dropped Mings was disgraceful days were numbered from that day on

There or thereabouts, we'd be relying on other teams being shitter.

Like others, I'll be surprised if he even bothers attempting to be a manager again, he'll pop up on BT Sport every now and again.

There were those saying that two managers had failed to get these players any higher than lower mid table.  So a lot of blame was aimed their way for a while.

Even now, after all that's gone on since the last chancer left and a real manager finally took over, even now, some insist on looking back. Why? "Fuck Gerrard & UTV!" is surely all that needs to be said.

Eventually, yes. We've seen there are managers for certain jobs. Bruce did a job halting the slide and reconnecting the team with the fans. Smith did the same on steroids. Emery is not just different planet, he orbits a different sun. Gerrard proved to be way, way, way below Premier League standard, with the only annoying thing being we were the ones to take the punt. Increasingly regularly, he'd have been taken to the cleaners by the better managers in this league.

We were terrible, disorganised, not defending properly, not scoring goals.  All a recipe for a relegation scrap.  One that I think we may have lost.

I prefer talking about him now he's gone and it's history than when he was here.

We would potentially have done a Leicester. But if he had not been sacked after Fulham, he would have gone before season end. Maybe we would have had Potter, or Deano, in April.

If we had total absentee landlords and they'd left the big call to Purslow - I think we'd have been in the conversation going into March and April.

But seeing Everton staying up with eight wins and 36 points I still reckon we'd have stopped up despite SG. 

To be even talking that way after the starting base and investment Carpethead had shows how much of a booby he is at this level.

I could easily have seen us having to beat Brighton to stay up on the last day under that twat.
The atmosphere would have been completely different. And the team. And the result.

Like many of these former pros, Gerrard isn't a coach but a figurehead. He has no technical ability, merely a reputation born exclusively of his achievements as a player.

Fortunately, we now have one of the best coaches in the world.

I reckon so. We should remember Unai Emery saved us from relegation.

He was never up to the job - he was a great midfielder - who managed to find an assistant who may, or may not, be a component Championship manager.

Its not his fault he was so shit - he should never have been given one of the hardest jobs in world football.   

Someone else will take a punt on him, and they will regret it too.  But I hold him no ill will, its us that made the mistake in buying into him.

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

This could have been the case but I think he would have started more fight with the players and destroyed morale wish would have sent us down.

So glad he's gone.

Really glad he isn't holding us back any more.

Good riddance!
