So is there anyone out there who still thinks we were wrong to sack Claudio?
I never said it was wrong, just that they could have tried to do it in a way that gave the guy some dignity.
They did it, so it appears, no differently than if they were getting rid of Martin Allen, Megson or Holloway.
Ranieri masterminded an achievement unparalleled in world sport. He may have had to go, but he deserved better.
It was the way it was done that many people didn't like but you're talking in hindsight anyway.
Maybe they should have sacked him at the end of last season and then we'd be champions again.
There were a number of people that said it was the wrong decision and we should have stuck with him even if it meant getting relegated.
In that scenario, we wouldn't have had last night.
Why are you biased? What did J-Rud do to you?
Just what I was thinking. I have no idea whether Jon Rudkin is good at the job or not. Presumably the people we bought in during the summer transfer window were Walsh's targets.
The bias was more to do with Shakey staying in because we were at that point 1-0 up against Sevilla.
Rudkin doesn't seem to be able to get transfers over the line but not a personal bias!
Same here. Plus I don't like his face.
To slightly adjust the balance of that sentence, I'd accepted that relegation could well have been the price of staying with CR. Personally, I felt uncomfortable with the sacking but saw the justification for it. Whether it's a right or wrong decision depends on your perspective; whether you value loyalty over potential failure, or whatever. Today, it's looks and feels like the right decision pretty much from every perspective. If we stay up (which I feel more confident of doing than I did several weeks ago - what does that say?) then it'll look like the right decision from a business perspective. You make choices at a particular time knowing they have consequences and you live with the results. Whether they are right or wrong is often a hindsight thing. This time next year, CR will be fondly remembered, and rightly so, as part of our rich past.
Who knows whether last night would have happened with him. Same result but by different means? We were always in it after the 1st leg.
Great post Yack.
