I’d like to say I’m glad.
But the truth is I’m not.
We now have to pretty much start from scratch, with a new manager having to get to know the players and all that involves.
That said, Roberto Di Matteo had to go, because it simply wasn’t working.
And I have to doff my cap at how quickly Dr Xia and the board have reacted.
Which tells me that they’d already done the background work in implementing a plan B.
And I’d expect the announcement of a new manager very shortly, which tells me it’s going to be Steve Bruce.
Unless we’re going to use the international break to negotiate with another club as we pinch their manager.
All interesting, but sadly, still turbulent times.
