Pretty harsh comments IMO. Couldn’t it be he simply expects people around him to keep their word and if they don’t and do things behind his back he resigns - as opposed to whinging and whining but still picking up a big salary and waiting to be paid off or jump into another job? Yes he walked from City in the past but who knows what went on there - not exactly renowned for their scruples are they? He stayed at Palace for a long time thru’ thick and thin and similarly stayed with Reading through promotion, a successful spell in the Premiership and a relegation then made it fairly clear he’d do all he could to get them back but if he failed (which he narrowly did) then he’d leave. I’m happy with Reid but would have been delighted to have had Coppell here.
Smarter people than I have been total idiots - and I've met them all.
