Under Jimmy we were 17th with 20 points from 16 games. Under Ollie we have 50 points, so 30 from 18 games.
Anyone who reckons we aren;t 100% safe, must also equally acknowledge we have an equal chance of making the play offs, by that thought process.
Like his choice of Fleming too. The guy really marshals side from the sidelines and seems to have more of an input then birch
Got to say I've always been pro Ollie as he has similar management qualities to Warnock.
He's installed pride and passion In the team with a British core of players. We also mix our style of play up and in general if he had been here 10 games earlier I think we'd be sitting 8/9th in the table now and would have a decent shout of the playoffs.
What I like currently is when I see the pre match threads we are all struggling to name the first 11 and there's often a case for 2 or 3 on the bench to be in the first 11 which is always a good sign.
We also don't need to go mad in the summer with a major rebuild which imo means if Ollie is given some budget to spend we can actually focus on quality instead of quantity!
hands up, I was one not impressed with his appointment. Sitting in the SA stand it's painful seeing all the r's fans that have not bothered renewing in the last couple of years. Early signs Olly's brand of football will hopefully get them back
I must away now, I can no longer tarry
This morning's tempest I have to cross
I must be guided without a stumble
Into the arms I love the most
I was incredibly against bringing Olly back when we were looking at options as I didn't see the point in going back to something before, especially something that ended the way it did. But as soon as I saw that first interview of his, that was it, I was hooked on giving the guy a chance and thank god he's improved the confidence immeasurably and more importantly, he's shown tactical versatility throughout a single match that I did not think he had in him. Well done to Olly, long may he silence doubters.
