Are you saying comparing one seasons spending with four is fair comparison? Are you saying 6th place and European football is comparable with 15th? Are you ignoring the approx £9m difference in finishing position money when making that comparison? Do you know the wage bills of Aston Villa then and now?
All you seem intent on doing is saying "MON spent this MON spent this". All I am trying to point out is that Villa achieved more, in terms of where they finished in the league, with continuity in their management set up. Since then they have struggled in both seasons since MON left and been in relegation fights both seasons. As pointed out above, MON did resign from Villa over transfer fund issues. He wanted more money to spend to try and make that leap from continual 6th place finishes to breaking into the top 4. When he didn't get that he felt he had taken them as far as he probably could with the current set up. They have struggled since. I also think Stoke will struggle next season after Pulis left. I also pointed out that Bolton and Charlton also, for one reason or another, thought a change of manager and removing that stability of set up was a good idea and it backfired on them. Everton and Moyes is a good example of stability and what can be achieved if you, and at a higher level obviously Arsenal and Wenger continually gettign them in the CL as well as Ferguson and Man Utd. In summary continuity can be good long term and sometimes the grass isn't greener on the other side.
i will now leave you to go back to talking about how much MON spent over 4 seasons and completely missing the actual point. Dod on.....
Of course he "achieved" more, he spent more. And I'll guarentee the wage bill is significantly lower.
I'll gladly dod on. No point arguing with a Celtic fan about the messiah. incidentally whats he doing now
