One man's mitigation is another mans damning of the piss poor summer recruitment.

I want to give Power the benefit of the doubt, that this season hasn't been a sinister plot, like a Producer's style scam to have guaranteed relegation, but wouldn't be surprised to see Springtime For Hitler introduced as the walk on theme.

*an argument which I just don't get because league football is going to provide far better returns
And so are cup runs. Building a side that can be competitive in cups can reap huge rewards. I know it is a bit of an extreme example, but on the radio at the weekend, the Lincoln boss stated that their FA Cup run this season has earned them around five times his budget for 2016/17.

A decent cup side should also be better placed to deal with the play-offs or 'must win' relegation matches.

Bit of a shame we're every bit as bad in the Cups as we are in the League then really.

Unfortunately this shows the pie in the sky dreams of many of our fans now, we would never in a million years be able to approach a manager of this calibre....which is why he is about to take over at Derby today.

If Williams walked we'd get another yes man who would let Power and/or Sherwood pick the team. Highest priority will be that he has an excellent reputation coaching youth players again no doubt so we can get them in on loan and/or cheap.

Little would change.

the seemingly unwillingness to learn from past errors, scares me!

For any Matthew Syed readers, it's known as Cognitive Dissonance. The presence of compelling evidence to show that somebody's view or approach is plainly wrong, only serves to harden their view that they are right.  

I suspect that next season Power will be even more determined to show that kids and misfits can win, rather than accept that a different approach could be more effective.

That's a cognitive bias. A cognitive dissonance is the mental stress felt by having two conflicting views at the same time.

No it isn't.

Cooper was a real manager, although it's debatable whether or not he was a good real manager.

Looking back, Paul Hart was a real manager, as was Maurice Malpas.

Macari, Ardiles, Hoddle, diCanio. All of these weren't real managers when appointed.

Experience doesn't guarantee results.

Do you really think he was 100% in control of playing matters?
