4 Years Ago Today
Today is the 11th May 2020, we are not playing games at the moment, when we eventually do it’ll likely be our 3rd season in League 1 …… 4 years ago today, having put 3 past Chelsea, we hammered Everton, (Lukaku, Stones, Baines, Mirallas, Barkley, Barry et al), 3-0 in front of 46’454 to secure a 10th consecutive season in the Premier League. 2 of our goals came from Kone, who we would turn down a bid of £20 million a few months later. Our gaffer was soon to get the national job, their gaffer is now the manager of Belgium……. fair to say it’s not gone that well the last 4 years?
Just a Great, Great Night
Four days previous, we’d beaten Chelsea and those idiots up the road had failed to beat a hapless Villa. We just needed to beat Everton and it was a job very well done. Having spent 237 days of the season in the bottom 3, Sam had found a way – we just needed to beat Everton.
Thankfully, like WBA 2 years previous, Everton may as well have have pitched up in flip flops, with a big cigar on?
What’s Gone so Wrong?
CAUSE AND EFFECT……
- England lose to Iceland
- Sam gets England job
- Short loses his mojo
- In comes Moyes……
What really hurts is that it was such a waste? The team that beat Everton could have been mid table without any change of personnel? I’m a proud Englishman – I 100% back the decision of any club manager taking the England job – the fact he only lasted one game feels like we gave up everything for pretty much no reason?
The role of the written media in the National Game is a whole other discussion. The FA had to give Sam the job after the failings vs Iceland, like Redknapp and Clough they really won’t have wanted to appoint him – but they were over a barrel? I’m sure they will have given him the hard word? “Look Sam, we know the past, let’s park that. We’ll pay you a few million quid a year – just win some games and for fucks sake keep your powder dry?…”
