So Avram is for the chop at the end of the season, irrespective of whether or not we survive. In fact, his best chance of holding on to his job would probably be for us to go down. Like that, the club might not be able to afford to pay him off!
How else can you interpret Sullivan's explanation of why Grant wasn't sacked? Bruiser told the Press, “Changing managers mid-season doesn’t usually work". What a ringing endorsement that is! He might as well have said, "The guy's a useless cnut but when you're in mid shag, you stay with the cnut you've got!"
Mind you, changing managers at the end of the season has a proven track record of success. Look how we have progressed since replacing Zola!
I love the way he distances himself from Avram in 'subtle' ways. How about, “Avram is very optimistic we’ll stay up and we hope things will improve in the league here." Look at the contrast between "very optimistic" and "hope"! You can bet your life that the "we" does not include Grant!
As votes of confidences go, this one is up right there with Leon Trotsky's ice pick tribute from old mucker Stalin! Well, Sulli has the hat so what should Avram expect? And Trotsky was Jewish too remember!
Come to think of it, if I was Gold, I would have 24 hour police protection at my hospital bed side just in case! Remember that scene in the Godfather?
