Snowflake Royal That's an assertion you really can't back up Vision.
Gomes had us in the relegation zone iirc and Clement wasn't far off. With a change of the nature made having virtually no chance of obtaining the promotion.
Lol. Well since you issued the challenge I'll give it a go
The point isn't that the person coming in will deliver playoffs that season more that the incumbent manager definitely won't. Or that's the M.O Dai has operated under.
Even Bowen's harshest critics wouldn't think we'd be in a relegation fight this season. He was given a contract extention at the point where his stock was highest and we'd moved to within a few points of the playoffs at New Year. Clearly post extention then Dai has decided that isn't the case. Bowen gets binned.
Likewise neither Gomes nor Clement were expected to deliver promotion the season they were appointed. Both fulfilled the remit of taking teams that a lot of the fanbase thought were relegation doomed and saved them. In fact the one thing both men did manage to achieve was to show they could turnaround teams and scramble to safety.
The following season Clement got sacked less than halfway through the season (after a big summer outlay ) despite us not being in the relegation zone. And Gomes had only 11 games of the following season (2 of which were before the big summer outlay ) before he was gone.
Who knows maybe this new guy is the one who finally gets a full season to build a team without the added pressure of the Owner's Promotion expectations but I said those very same would just a few weeks ago in relation to Bowen and we all know whats just happened.
I'd say that's the assertion that at this moment in time has nothing to back it up.
