    They will be the same as wont even get in if campaign on making the changes required.

    It is an issue with the board system as nearer end of term there is not the desire to make longer term changes required and prefer to go for more instant impact.

    Again no manager worth their salt will want job. Players are too powerful and team is built to certain players that makes it tactically inflexable.

    Top coaches will bide their time until this generation is done and even then most of them want to be in EPL these days.

    Some boards and managers accept indiscipline because they don't aim for the highest level of glory. And, truth be told, these pampered, overpaid and past it (some more than others) super-players have proved that they can still win titles regardless of their problems (and there are quite a few). And they make money for the club.

    But the really ambitious leaders (be it presidents, or managers) will want to aim for the highest level that is achievable for themselves and the club, and will have the guts to make the nasty calls to get there.

    They're also paying out of their pocket to ensure the regular employees receive 100% of their salary as long as this lasts, in addition to taking a 70% paycut.

    It's probable we will get much of the same thing in the future, new Bartomeus and Valverdes, and in this case, the retirement of the veterans is the only reset button we have. But there's also an outside chance we hire and elect better, smarter leaders that will speed things up.
