Some people are either unable to see the bigger picture or just see it as excuses. I don't think people WANT him to fail.
Evans was given a top budget and we were 4th when he left. It doesn't really matter where you are in a season it's where you are at the end. The squad Evans assembled was 8th at the end of the season. This is fact. The squad DF has assembled will finish 3rd or 4th. Again, this is fact.
As far as I'm aware Evans had no trouble offloading players he didn't want and had no long term injuries. DF has had trouble offloading expensive players (Anderson and Butcher) and had players who were injured at the start of the season (Diamond and Mirfin) and has had a couple of long term injuries to key players during the season (olejnik was in training and White was a broken leg in game) yet despite that we still have promotion in our hands with one game to go.
It sometimes does seem like we aren't allowed to have a collective "off day" or even come out 2nd best in a certain game.
Next season will be very interesting, if we don't go up then we may need a whole squad rebuild. If we go up I can see us retaining whoever we want. Then sign higher quality players and it should be a good season.
