Marco Silva was the chosen one last summer, but now for some he seems to be a manager that Blues fans would like to leave the club.
The Portuguese boss has got a decent reputation for the work he has done at the likes of Hull and Watford – albeit on short-term bases.
He does, however, deserve the chance to really prove himself at our club and stabilise – so calls for him to be sacked are ludicrous.
A manager many of us desperately wanted, it’s the typical nature of the football fan to change quickly but, from him, where do we go next?
He changed the squad around greatly in the summer and things were always going to take time to gel – the fact that we still have a chance of coming seventh seems to be overlooked.
Eventually, we want to be back in the top four and challenging at the sharp end but, in reality, seventh this season was the best we could probably realistically hope for.
We’ve got a chance of that, and the squad is only going to increase in coherence so let’s give the guy a break.
