Let’s be clear, we didn’t learn a huge amount about Jonathan Woodgate’s ability to manage in the few months he was here other than we know he wasn’t hopeless- he was capable of stringing together wins with a squad that some people kept saying was the best in the division while others were saying had been decimated by those we lost following relegation. He wasn’t even given the luxury of a single transfer window.
The results at the end of the season will have been from a number of factors so it’s impossible to assess his ability to put together a promotion-winning side or to compare him with someone like Eddie Howe. I still feel the same way about Jason Tindall as well.
But that’s the nature of this crazy game. We’ve got no choice other than to move on, and hope the next guy is given a fair crack at the whip. Is the board patient enough to understand that he will need time to implement his ideas though? Or will this become another “must get promoted” season where we see a knee-jerk reaction come January if we’re not in a promotion spot?
