Couldn't agree more. I'm pretty sure we didn't ask the entire playing staff to film that anti P-word video just so we could hire a guy who occasionally shouts the same stuff to be their boss.
In the half moment between reading your question and your answer in the next sentence I thought 2 weeks. Reading your answer I agree end of the month (aka 3 weeks) is fine, but I'm not sure they should need more than 2 weeks unless their preferred candidate takes a long time to decide. But I'm fine with EOM.What does everyone think is a reasonable time for the team to hire a new coach and not have ill effects from this during the offseason? I'm thinking December 1 is a good deadline. Gives the new coach most of the offseason to get his visa and find his assistants, probably is 5-6 weeks away from the start of training camp, and right in the middle of the signing period for new players.
I can see no reason why Matarrita should be given a new contract. LB is definitely a position where the club should be strengthening.Big name is van Bronckhorst or Arteta with my money on v. B. He was a full back so I'm excited to see how Scally can develop with him and if Mata can improve or he decides to cut bait.
