That may be because that that club ethos doesn't yet exist, or simply that we haven't seen it yet.My mileage doesn't necessarily vary, I don't yet know what to think. I am though far more excited about the idea of young, attack minded players from the ranks of the largest European clubs than I am by cloggers and retreads from the English leagues. I'd rather have the hope of what might be than the dread of what is inevitable, and for that reason I'm in on this approach right now. My point would be that whatever way the manager sets out to play, the sort of players we have recruited will take time to adapt to the league, and the manager will be sacked (probably) before they do.Rinse and repeat.
