Sure, but if we're not making top four isn't it worth to give Giggs an opportunity to see what he can do longer than four games he had in 13/14? Politically, it works out well for Woodward, who is keen on his public perception, to sack LVG, put Giggs in until the end of the season, still not make top four, be then be able to say Giggs had a chance but couldn't cut it, bring whoever in next. But more than likely, LVG will be here only until top four is mathematically impossible.
He needs to take over a team that isn't low on confidence and in crisis.
But you're still in the FA Cup and Europa League. You're good in the big games, so if you on the off chance won the Europa League, it would be roles reversed and the correct call made in keeping him. It's certainly a risk but you can only give proper analysis on when the season is all over and mathematically you're out of everything.
You wanted him out halfway through last season too which would have been a mistake. So I'll play the waiting game for now (again). I'm struggling though.
