Got to play devils advocate here.

The fans who 'wanted' him in weren't idiots. Most people knew very little of him, and what they did know was that he was a part of the set up that kept us up that season. I recall the reaction to his announcement as largely muted and 'Best we can hope for at this point in time' which wasn't an idiotic pov. Don't forget, Harry left us in the lurch a handful of games into the season - pickings would be sparse for even the biggest of clubs in that situation. The club went with what they knew.

Thank God for Monk and an end to that sorry episode.

Most sane people dont need a crystal ball to know that Cotterill is a shit manager and a bellend.

The difference with Monk is astounding. SC is defensive, whiney, gloomy.

But to add balance, his previous record at this level was there in black and white for all to see. In addition to the comments from fans of past clubs, it wasn't a surprise that he was a total failure.

He was part of the setup which somehow transcended into some myth that he was the one that kept us up instead of 'Arry.

When he was appointed it was obvious it was a terrible idea to be fair.
