Difficult to answer with any certainty. MB’s CV isn’t exactly bursting with trophies but how many managers have that? MB is Myopic in the extreme. People say he’s a great coach and a rubbish man manager. IMO he’s a great coach at one style of football which can pay dividends in the short term but it’s not sustainable medium to long term. The reliance on a small squad is just not sustainable either at this level and MB‘s insistence on just using those first team members started costing us dear. If Gelhardt, Creswell, Summerville, Bate etc had been given as much attention as Roberts for example, I don’t think we’d been in our current predicament. As a club we had a perfect opportunity to blood some of the youngsters in the final half dozen games of last season but MB ploughed on with a tiring first team. Loved what he had done with the squad to get us promoted, some of the best football ever witnessed at ER, but as this season unfolded, I only thought it would go one way leading to the inevitable sacking. Is JM the answer? We could have done a lot worse. Getting an old dinosaur like Alladyce would have been a disaster. The style difference alone would have doomed us to certain relegation. It’s such a shame that MB couldn’t tweak things a bit, because that’s what is happening now. We we’re going down with MB at the helm. If JM keeps us up it will have obviously been a correct decision. He’ll have at least until Christmas to prove he’s the right fit.
