Quantum physics has some basis to believe that there are a number of parallel universes which exist in which different actions and decisions are taken than those in our universe. Its hard to wrap your head around but I can guarantee one thing, AVB has lost his job in all those where Fulham beat us 1-0.
Following the twitter feed and talking to people during the match, you could generally feel that he was already a foregone conclusion. There are numerous reports in the media, both print and digital, about how fans, management even owners at the Lane are unhappy with AVB. They remind you how the 110 million spent should be giving you instant returns or the style of play that is un-spur like. One paper even carried report of how the board were going to lean on AVB to accomodate two strikers in the playing eleven. That is pretty daft!
Let the man manage! The fact that his job was on the line after the City bashing was common knowledge but till when must he manage under the threat of being booted out? I honestly do not know the answer to that one. Maybe till the next unexpected bad result. Will that thought allow him to lay the foundations of a strong team which may challenge for the title next year? We are still within three points of a champions league berth. Is that not a good position to be in when we supposedly have not even started to find our feet? The fact that all the players have come out and stood strongly in support of AVB should stand for something.
This week our team travels to the Stadium of Light to take on Sunderland where I again expect our team to win. But this season so far has been greatly inconsistent and to take anything for granted is foolish. Sensing the mood at the present, anything less than a win may mean a new manager at our club.
