So you allow Ferguson 2 years to improve the leagus position and an additional 2 years when they went from 2nd to 11th to 13th, this included a 7 match run without a win.
Fergusons first trophy was the FA Cup not the league so it was 6 seasons before he won the league.
Dalglish has won a trophy in his first year and is being hung out to dry. He has taken the team to the FA Cup semi final and that isnt taken into account.
This is his first full season in the league and it has been hugely disappointing but he has been without Lucas, Suarez, Gerrard and Agger for large parts of the season.
If the new manager doesn't significantly improve our league position in his first season do we get rid of him also?
We are one game better off cup wise than birmingham last season. Cup runs can happen, winning a trophy is great, but it isn't the measure of a manger, it is in fact much less so the measure of a manager than it was when ferguson took over Utd.
In response to your closing question, it depends whether or not he shows enough to make the fans think he can turn it around.
