What do we think the reasoning is behind appointing someone on a 4 month contract?

 

  • Waiting on someone in work to become available in the summer?
  • Not wanting to commit to a big contract in case we are relegated?
  • Potential investment on the horizon?
  • Been burnt too many times so wants to trial the next person?

There has got to be a reason behind it. I know that some of the decisions made by the chairman seem to lack logic but this seems to be a considered approach. He only appointed Pulis on a short contract also. It indicates that there is something bigger at play here. 


Apart from rumours has it been confirmed anywhere that it's only a 4 month contract?

 

I was under the impression DC tends to appoint all managers on 1 year rolling contacts so it wouldn't be unusual for him to appoint to the end of this season & roll the contract on for another year in the summer if both parties are agreeable.

Terrible appointment if true. The polar opposite of what we need and meets none of the criteria set out by Chansiri when he sacked Pulis.

 

Expect he'll get to the end of the season now then we start this all over again, with another Paxo stooge.

Not terrible at all. But very defensive. Won the league with Maccabi conceding just 9 goals. Just not what we needed.  Over complicating simple games when we have really good attacking capability. Like playing with handbrake on all the time. The wrong fit I think.

Be disappointing if true. Really don’t feel he is the type of manager we need. More dull defensive football. Seems to come  across as dull as dishwater, not someone the fans will buy in to imo.  Paxo will be happy.

The fanbase needs lifting massively. If true this bloke goes completely against that. 
 

He looks miserable as sin, his football is negative and Watford fans complained he sucked the enjoyment out of it for them.

 

At this point I think DC and Paixao are just taking the ******** out of us.

They scored 2 goals per game on average during his spell as manager. Just looks like he did a good job.

Is this more or less accurate than the source which told you he would be appointed 2 or 3 weeks ago?
