Would have loved him to stay longer but was always prepared for this. Everything I witnessed in Fergie I have just relived... From reviving a dead team, via galvanising the fans and players, to winning promotion to the top division. The one big difference is Fergie had two bad years before the 18 glorious months that left their mark on me for life. Jack had five months of fan rebellion whilst he worked behind the scenes and then it all clicked. In both cases, patience was needed. Same at Man Utd where Fergie was one game from the sack. I despair at the modern demand for instant success. I think we inadvertently lose out on so much more! We binned Gus because he was merely keeping us in the top league. We binned Danny because he had "taken us as far as he could" and the board wanted someone else to "take us in a new direction"! Success! Goodbye Premier League... Hello Championship! Jack has earned his chance at s bigger club in a bigger league earning a bigger wage... ... but will he be given time and support? Just as importantly, will we, the fans, learn from this and show patience and support for whoever is appointed. After all... Jim Clunie didn't do too badly! Got us into Europe. After we binned him and appointed our physio as manager, radical indeed, Ricky actually did incredibly well for us. Be open minded folks. As the wise old prophetess Doris once said, Que Sera Sera!
