What's wrong with you? He's equally responsible for all the good ones and all the bad ones.
Blah, blah, blah we're shit blah, blah, blah .... is that your only thought?
If you won't define success or failure based on our 100 years of history, what the feck will you define it on?
We built a mega stadium and have yet to see a full seasons income from it, let alone the opportunity to invest that income into the squad, yet here you are saying failing to finish inside the top 6 for the first time since 2010 is a failure by Steve Hitchin .... hmmmm .... remember before he arrived we only finished in the top 6 twice since 1990 .... oh I forgot our history doesn't matter to you.
Not saying that's all on him, but clearly that's hardly failing, is it?
Any of the signings you haven't picked out as "failures" would then be by your own selection be a success. 43 players signed contracts between 2017 and 2021 you selected the 'failures' ergo it's all those that are left that are successes. Or are you saying all 43 were shit?
Who were the good ones? How many times do I have to pose this question to you until you actually give me a genuine answer? Who do you rate out of the Hitchens signings? It's incredible listening to you try and spin this like a terrible politician, his job was recruitment right? Who did he recruit who were good value for money footballers?
You're summing up all the good stuff we've done as a football club in recent years and bizarrely giving Hitchens far too much credit. He wasn't responsible for appointing Poch, or managing the youth academy which saw Kane emerge, or even signing guys like Eriksen or Lloris who were key to these sides. He signed most of the players who saw us slide DOWN the table, not up.
And yes, he failed. He failed at his job to bring in quality footballers to improve our first team. Why you're so passionately arguing against this statement is beyond me. The man's gone to relegation threatened Everton and we're rid of him, would you want him back? Were you happy with his work?
