But this statement has to be carried far and wide:
the main point of this blogpost is to mane an appeal to the joint-chairmen. Make a decision and stick with it. If you’re going to fire Allardyce, do it now. This evening. But if you are not going to fire him, stick with him. You’re in the best position to judge whether he can make it and turn things around. Use your experience from the Grant era to inform your decision, but it is your decision and you need to be accountable for it. And if you are going to give Allardyce your confidence, you need to buy two central defenders and two strikers in January. Nothing less will be good enough. If you fire Allardyce, you’ll still need to do this, FFP or no FFP.
