  • "Lot of negative comments about Sami Hyypia but he was sacked when Bayer Leverkusen were 3rd in the Bundesliga, which is a lot stronger than the Championship and better technically than the PL. He will also still have good contacts with Liverpool (where he was well liked and respected) and should be able to get some decent players on loan.

    Regarding Championship experience, Poyet had no experience until promoted and Oscar had none. Both achieved top six finishes."
