I imagine it's a real question of confidence in his own judgement when events suggest it has been flawed, although we outsiders do have the luxury of hindsight, it has to be said.
Does he trust Speed to make the right choices in the transfer window, or does he throw more bath water out of the window if the results don't turn soon ?
