''including a period of "new manager syndrome" which undoubtedly bagged you a few extra points.''
What a fucking ridiculous thing to say
What about the 'shit manager syndrome' just before that though, which cost us a fair few points?
Love it how the season they sacked Hughton/hired Pardew, this lot were banging on saying we only finished above them because they changed their manager mid-season. Now when we changed our manager mid-season, we gained extra points and finished higher because of 'new manager syndrome'.
