So Sheff Ud are 5th and Chris Wilder is perceived as a brilliant manager.
Everton are 15th and their manager (sorry, don't know name) is under huge pressure and the sack is imminent.
But bizarrely, Sheff Utd have 17 points and Everton have 14 points.
In Sept, Sheff Utd beat Everton, now if just in that one game the result was reversed and Everton won, then Everton would be joint 5th and Sheff Utd joint 15th. Positions totally reversed.

The same could be said about us and Doncaster. Had they beat us, they'd be 4th with 2 games in hand of Wycombe, and we'd be 12th having played more games than Portsmouth and Burton below us.

Because the relative budgets and expectations of Everton and Sheffield United are miles apart, surely? And Marco Silva is close to the sack because they've stagnated under him despite him being given more money for transfers than any Everton manager in history.
