You can't even compare the way Premier League clubs are run to AFL clubs. It's something like 6-8 out of 20 managers in the Premier League have been sacked and replaced already, the season is only 11 games old. There isn't the longevity being a manager in the Premier League outside of Guardiola, Klopp and not many else that we see in the AFL. If Koch was in charge of a English football club they'd be languishing in League Two after consecutive relegations with him saying we're on a path etc while the fans protest.Aston Villa sacked their manager after 5 straight losses. A manager who was a boyhood Villa fan, took over midseason when they were 15th in the Championship, got them promoted that year, improved every season and is genuinely one of the most likable people in football. I think if he'd had more time he'd have gotten things back on track, but the owners are ambitious and want results.
As much as I think it's a bit harsh, erring on the side of ruthless is much, much better than Koching up deluxe and never holding anyone accountable for anything.
I agree with getting Hinkley out, his almost decade at our club has proven what he is. It's just laughable we're all still here saying what the club needs but the ones who make the call don't make it.
