I think a top manager has to show these signs relatively early on. Or else I don’t think they’ll make it in the longer term.

But what are these signs? Is getting to a cup final a sign of being able to deliver? Because Ole got to a final and came second in the league. Di Matteo won the CL very early. Where is he now? Even Tuchel has question marks over him now despite a CL win. Are we saying then that Ten Hag simply has to get to a final early on (or is a semi-final ok?), irrespective of what he does in the league, as it’s a sign of having “what it takes”? The fact is, it took Klopp 3 years to win something at Liverpool. Many managers have got to finals very early in their careers only to massively fail afterwards.

There’s no way he’s getting 2 years, or even 1, if he doesn’t show signs of progress but to judge that on cups or nearly winning cups is not going to be the deciding factor IMO.
