This man takes teams like Villarreal and Malaga, bottom of the table when taking over, then very quickly turns them into top 4 teams who dominate possession against the likes of Barcelona, Real Madrid, playing very attacking, exciting football.... Sounds too good to be true for us and yes its harder to do now with how good our league is in terms of number of good teams but all the above is mostly all we ever wanted. Attacking, entertaining football.
This is maybe then best signing we've ever made. Potential wise.
As for people worrying about the transfer budget, obviously Pellegrini would of agreed to how much they have to spend and who is in charge of scouting, choosing targets. I know its hard to be optimistic but Pellegrini has agreed to it all so lets let him and his staff do their thing.
Fingers crossed we become a steady, 7-10th prem team soon and we get to enjoy exciting football more often.
I think you may well be correct in that assessment. Particularly so in our case because our stock after such a fractious period and high comedy (if of the black variety) owners must be towards rock bottom and players are aware of this as much as anyone else both inside and outside the club.
For the first time we have a Manager of the status and experience to at least potentially overshadow the Sullivan effect, because if the latter tries to outdo this Manager then a whole new level of self imposed disaster will befall him in the outside world than the mess he is already experiencing from fans and press alike. If even he doesn't see that then we truly are lost as a club under this lot.
Next the players we have will surely start to feel more positive about the way the club is headed and thus less likely to want out and if they do stay do more than just enough to earn their money. Equally the attraction to players outside the club will be immense and will bring in players (as long as he is backed) that we could never get otherwise or we would have to overpay substantially to have a chance so in that regard he may well pay for himself over 3 years. It will certainly help tip the balance for many with multiple choices.
Lastly the positivity amongst the fans will mirror the above, again if sufficient backing is provided and he is allowed to do his job unhindered. Of course there will be a grace period, so both Owners and Manager will have to be on top form to carry this effect through and beyond that initial period but at least there is hope which had been all but lost (no lost) for most. lets just hope Sullivan (or the brats) don't want to boast too heavily of their involvement in any success the Manager brings. That prospect scares me actually.
As a footnote this is a Sullivan decision as most will know. The other two wanted Moyes to stay though Brady it seems was keen to try to get Dyche beyond that, which says how much of a loose cannon she is in the present environment. Or maybe she just wants to take winding up the fans up a notch or 5.
