Yep - fair point. I think there are several on here who are purely backing him based entirely on the fact he hasn't been in the job that long - and tbf, to an extent that's reasonable, don't get me wrong. I just want to see some kind of proof, very soon, that he's capable of doing a decent job here. At the moment, the only two things I can say are:
1) He hasn't been here very long (but that ultimately has absolutely no direct correlation on whether or not he's up to the task)
2) He talks well... but then I'd rather have someone who can walk the walk (which perhaps it will prove to be that he can)
As it stands, I see nothing from Garner to fill me with any confidence and so all I can say is "he needs more time". The point I'm therefore trying to make is that giving him the benefit of the doubt is based largely on blind faith. He has no management record to compare back to; it's not like we can even say "well he made it work with [insert club here] so you never know".
So FWIW, I'm not trying to insult people, I'm just saying that - logically IMO - given results have been poor, and he has no track record to look back on, all we can really presumably be pinning our hopes on is that he appears to talk a good game and that he hasn't had that many games to prove himself (but again, that doesn't guarantee he'll actually turn it round) - therefore there definitely appears to be a requirement to have at least some blind faith (as it stands).
Keep the faith chap. We're still in the mix for playoffs, we're done with the crap Cup which everyone hates anyway, the 2 players he's brought in need more than one game to settle in, he'll be fine.
