I don't think he ever got over having to run for a good seat on the EasyJest flight when he signed.

Everyone goes on about how many managers Levy has gone through, yet 13 in 24 years is actually pretty standard in the modern era.

Of the current PL teams, 8/20 have had more managers than us since the ENIC takeover (Aston Villa, Brentford, Chelsea, Crystal Palace, Everton, Luton, Newcastle, Nottingham Forest).
Three others have had the exact same number of managers as us, so that makes us bang average in terms of manager churn.

Looking at other clubs who've been in the PL in the last 5 years, most of them have had more manager than us since the ENIC takeover too (Cardiff, Huddersfield, Leicester, Southampton, Watford).

Remarkable really! 😜
The point wasn’t how many managers we’ve had but Levy’d winning mentality compared to all those names who are clearly all losers!

Has Levy issued his thank you for your loyal support this season bollox yet?

Should be an easy one to write. New leadership team, return to Europe, finishing above several high spending rivals

Despite ripping Kane out from the team without replacing him just before the KO, doing fck all in the cups, and failing to win any of the derbies that matter. The downsides must have been the fans' fault

This is the kind of purile nonsense I come on here for. We want him to communicate with fans more, but when he does we slam him. Brilliant!

When all's said and done, has it really been such a terrible season? I don't know about you, but a few more signings this summer and I'm bang up for it again next season. The chairman's note doesn't usually tell us much, but would you seriously expect it to?

I'm fairly anti levy but that's just childish to be honest.
He brought in Ange, Munn to run the football side of club which most of us have been calling him to give up the footballing side for years, has restructured the footballing operations, spent decent amount of cash including permanent signing in Jan which we were only one of 2 clubs to do that!?
We have so much ammo to rip into levy but this season is one of the rare ones where he has done more good than bad even after the senior concessions decision.
Rein it in lad because stuff like that detracts from the real reasons we can call Levy out.

And if we look at Europe since 2000, Seville have had 18 managers and I think it's 7 times Europa League winners.

We'll see what happens in the summer. History tells me to be very skeptical because we all know how Levy operates. I'll be shocked if we do what we need to do to improve.

I guess it depends on how you interpret the season. Have we anything ? Are we waiting for another transfer window to sort stuff out?
I think we should not have to accept settling for 5th, especially when we were so strong at the start of the season.
I think we can always placate ourselves with its not been a terrible season.
Sure Kane left though not really replaced him or had any contingency for years. Maybe if we had we would have had an amazing season this year!

I suppose it depends on what you were expecting at the start of the season really.
For me, 6th, good football and an idea of where we were headed was a good season.

Yeah, it could have been better, as it could have been worse but I think it's been pretty decent overall.
Next season was always going to be the important one, in all sorts of different ways.

We're you, honestly, expecting to win something this season?

At the start of the season, I think every single one of us would've been happy with 5th. It's not paradise, but it's realistic.

Things are on the right track now though. All we need is another big window and if we get it right the following windows will only require a couple signings. No doubt things were messed up and left us with a lot to do. We're just in the process of fixing it.

Always cheap to label someone else's post as childish. Or cheap! But good for you, good for me...

I listed the ups and downs of the season, care to address the point on Kane? Ange has worked wonders if you fully understand the negative impact of the decision to sell and not replace... not just superficially on overall goals scored...

"not just superficially on overall goals scored"

Goals scored isn't a superficial aspect of football. It's the most important stat.

And replacing Kane isn't exactly easy. Given he left the day before the season started, not replacing him isn't a failure.

This season we:

-Gained more points than last season
-Scored more goals than last season
-Conceded fewer goals than last season
-Finished higher in the league table than we did last season
-Qualified for European football, unlike last season.

We didn't have the season of our lives, but I really don't understand what you've got to whinge about.

The poster was right: your reply was childish because it was completely devoid of nuance or understanding of the situation. It was typical of some of the replies in this thread. That's not cheap, that's calling you out for a simplistic response.

If you listened to Ange the contingency to Kane leaving was spreading his goals across the team, which has been done to a good extent.

If you really thought we would win something in Ange's first year when HE said there would be bumps in the road is setting yourself up for disappointment. I swear some just refuse to listen to what the manager says even though he says it multiple times.

5th in his first season with a whole new young squad learning a new way of playing is a terrific season in the grand scheme of things. Yes the last month or so has been disappointing but overall we've set ourselves up for a good second season with him.

Just in case some have never seen it , here is the Chairman's Suite at The Lane where he has his pre match lemonade and corned beef sandwich , does anybody seriously believe he is going to give this up.
