I don't believe he was ever in any danger of being sacked last season.
King, and the board at the time, knew it wasn't a 2 season project to turn the squad around. He's done well overall with recruitment, a few duds aside, but you could aim that criticism at any manager. Now, with a strong DOF and a playing philosophy that runs right through all of the football teams from women's to first XI, we'll actually be in a good place if and when Liverpool does come calling for him.
