    60 and best club he coached is Betis. This could turn ugly fast.

    Best available option for 6 months. Of course, we should go for Erik ten Hag in the summer.

    Huge risk but at least we will play better football. So sick of Valverde football.

    Potentially paying circa 20M in signing and release bonuses for a transitional manager.

    What happens if he succeeds I wonder. Wait and wait and wait for the opportune moment to sack and move onto a better manager?
    People are boring.

    True, but EV same from a similar mid table club. And he'd proven his inability to win/close CL KO games. At the worst, we remain at EV's current level - rock bottom.

    Want some tips?

    Don't do it. Lol.

    I do wonder how much money did all these managers sacked in the mid noughties get from us.

    I don't give a shit how risky or bad this appointment can be. That cockroach Valverde made me stop watching Barca wtih the last game I watched being the CdR final against Valencia.

    Atleast I get to watch Barca again. It is what it is.
    Valverde: "I don't think about resigning and I don't feel like players have failed me."

    Valverde: "This is football. It costs us and it costs the whole world."

    Setien has flaws but I wouldn't be surprised if he does a much better job at getting more out of guys like Firpo, FDJ, Arthur etc than Valverde.

    I have no idea how people rate managers, there are no objective metrics. For me its always about how a coach clicks with the team, whcih is impossible to predict beforehand. We will see how things turn out, but I am happy enough with him for 6 months.
