If the signs were dire I'd be saying get rid but its nothing like last year. Our defense is new but nothing like the calamitous stuff we got last term. We don't seem unfit, the effort is there and both of those were lacking under Dempster.
OK paper it was a rushed appointment and he does lack genuine experience but does have some good attributes. The alternative is another lost season gambling that a change will bring instant success and history suggests that doesn't work.
Let's just see what happens, give him a fair chance to build and work with the squad he's assembled. If we're in real danger come Jan then sure a rescue appointment might be needed but to change everything again now seems pointless and a huge waste of time and money.
Yes ive been very vocal about letting someone build a team, but I'm far from convinced that is GC at the minute.
In order to be given time, he has to buy himself some of that time now.
Obviously I think a lot of these players will be released and some retained as part of the building process... but if it looks this bad in another 5 games something will have to be done.
