Some facts to lay before the court. The termination of Martin Jol as an employee at WHL was pretty awful. A public relations disaster. So much so that even those devoted to the cause tied their colours to the mast of a sinking ship at one stage, just because it was morally/ethically right.
Some parts of Levy's job aren't be so palatable to the general public. Perspective must be retained. What elements were you exposed to that actually eminated from him? Harry humbley suggests that Paul Kemsley the curry house loose lipped lager whore may have coloured your judgement... to an extent.
What I see this evening is a football club that that has evaluated it's weaknesses and appropriately actioned them. Some Levy fans amongst us might even suggest that such is the depth of intelligence from our man at the top that he has sought to nip failure in the bud and buy us a Carling Cup win. And thus Europe, AGAIN. Who could argue that we weren't screwed at the back? Who did anything about it?
The appointment of Ramos, once you shed yourself from emotion was brilliant. Yeah, yeah, I know well the proof of the pudding is in the eating, but so far the facts speak for themselves.
I dislike the term deadwood. It derides those who gave despite their talent. Stalteri was occasionally awful, but he'll be remembered by me as a guy who finished off West Ham that night. Gardner will always be Sir Tony~a dig, but one out of fondness, if that makes sense. Routledge? A good player who sadly got better breaks at Fulham than he should have at WHL. I think he may well be a revelation at Villa Defoe? A fantastic Y0U TUBE file from his early forrays, but naff all worth crowing about of late. Sorry, but true.
Bottom line? Levy has Ramos as his enforcer to move us onwards and theoretically upwards.
Woodgate? Very happy so far.
Gilberto? Get in, now show us!
Hutton/my mate Al? This guy is a fighter and will show us some proper bottle.
Gunter? This is not a drill. Welsh? Think Bale. Think O'Hara.
F*ck me, if you think we were busy boys boxing clever this window, wait till the summer. Here come Tottenham. All the second raters WILL BE REPLACED.
I'm getting emotional. And as I've said before, it's an emotional business...
Unfashionable? Yeah. Levy's cool.
