Aren't we getting a bit ahead of ourselves?
We are assuming 7th will get a European place, which it might not and we are assuming we can finish 7th which we might not.

If we get 7th or 8th then Moshiri has a decision to make in the summer.
Any lower than that and it is fair to say the performances will have stayed pretty much the same as the last 7 of 8 and with that, Moshiris decision wouldn't be as difficult.

I like that post mate, but I reckon Mr Moshiri will leave things as they are for now and keep Big Sam for the duration of his 18 mth contract irrespective of where we finish this season, contary to what a lot of posters say on here Big Sam has steadied the ship, others will argue that is not enough but for me he has done what he was brought in for, which ever way it goes it will be an interesting summer ahead of that I have no doubt, in Mr Moshiri we trust.

Personally I think Moshiri is wiser than that. I don't think he is going to waste any more money and that's what he would be doing giving any to Sam if he's there for just 12 months. By that I mean they would be Sams players and a new guy would want his. Especially if the new guy wants to play football on the deck (not a dig at Sam he just has a different way of playing) .

He also doesn't look like he wants to let up in spending money and waiting 12 months either. He looks in a hurry to move this club forward.

I think finally he wants someone who is well known and on a level with the Klopps and Jose as he has stated himself. As much as we know Sam in England, in Europe he's a nobody.

So it all depends. If Moshiri wants to put his ambitions on hold for 12 months then Sam will stay. If he wants to continue raising the profile of the club he will get a continental type manager in.

Let's see what the summer brings.

Sam Allardyce has many contacts and many friends in football at home and (maybe it would surprise you but not me) also many friends and influential contacts abroad. The bloke knows his stuff but has a style of football and reputation (some of it, not all, unwarranted and media hype) that some (including myself) do not always like. I support him at the moment because he is what we needed and still do.

I'm sure he has many contacts DRS. However, you've answered my question. His reputation is what people do not like.

I am not talking about the agents or whoever in football. I am talking about who players will come and play for. They want to play for successful managers. Whether that be playing wise if young or manager wise through winning trophies.

We won't have a world cup to be playing for to get the Walcotts in the summer. Sam is not a big name at all abroad DFS. He's not known by fans and most teams or players and if he is it's as you say because of his character and reputation.

its really mixed bag and can see both sides of the argument.
on one side you can see maybe he wants to just make us stable again with big sam left in charge to see what he can get out of the team in a full season and build on year after after we finally have a solid looking line up and squad
the second is maybe the signings he makes will cost a lot and the next man to come in inevitably in 12 months time won't want them

tough call really is all about wether the right man buys into it aswel, the next manager must be someone who wants this desperately and sees this as a project he can get his teeth sunk into (like klopp at lfc and mourinho when he first got to Chelsea) tell the man that he's the guy and let him run with it.
