Having a season worse than the last would mean you would get rid of the manager.? So he would be instantly under pressure knowing if he finishes further down the table he would be gone. Are people not allowed to learn by their mistakes then and improve from them? Are you just gona jump from manager to manager hoping we finish 18th, 16th, 14th, 12th, 10th 8th, 6th?? Any decent manager will have long term ambitions and a 12 month contract isn't enough time for them to implement them thoroughly
Ok. You give a manager a three year contract. No pressure on him then. By December we are bottom but, no worries he's got a three year contract so even if he takes them down he's still in the job. No pressure second year in with still a year left so will he care if he takes us back up or not? Probable scenario would be sacking him in the December of his first year and paying off the remainder of his three year contract. That's really helped us in the past hasn't it?
