Couldn't agree more with this.
At the start of all this, I was gutted. Really didn't want Lampard to do. Not because of the football we played. Cos at times it wasn't brilliant at all. We had some awful performances and some shocking results. I wanted him to stay because of the connection he had with the fans and the general feel of how it was at the club. I wanted stability and for him to build done and take us up. I'm resigned to the fact now that he's going and to be honest I'm at a point now where I think I'd rather him go so that this is all sorted.
I said to my mates the other day that we could potentially end up with a better manager out of this.
I know there's a few people on here mentioned Wilder. I know he was linked with WBA but at the time I just thought that was probably to get him a new contract. However there has been boardroom unrest there for a while. Infact he was the favourite for the Sunderland job before Jack Ross got it. I've just dug out some quotes from him from that time:-
Wilder wants to remain at the club he supported as a boy but said: "Like anybody else, you’ve always got a decision if you don’t agree with what’s going on above you.
“Nobody has got a gun to my head to manage this football club. I’ve had it before when I’ve been at a football club and didn’t enjoy it. Where I thought ‘what am I doing here?’ I won’t make that mistake again.
If there's a even a small chance he's considering leaving Sheffield United. I'd go and pick him up myself now. Cannot see it though.
Realistically Hughton would be a good appointment and a better manager than Lampard. I'd fancy us to have a good season under him.
People suggesting Steve McClaren, Darren Wassall. Need to give their head a wobble. Why on earth would we do that?
