There are also all those stories that Pardew owed Ashley a load of money due to gambling debts.

Pardew will be gone soon too, or whoever it is that pulls the strings on player recruitments because im sure Pardew is not pushing for all his new players to come from france..... hes been dealt a bit of a bum hand to be fair...

Confirmed as gone. They're not doing a very good job of running the club at the moment. They even approached Paul Hartley and Dundee before they'd confirmed Solskjaer was sacked and he turned them down which isn't a good sign when Dundee is a more attractive job than Cardiff.

Was surprised to see him (Dundee fella) as the favourite for the job. If I was Tan i'd be hunting down Tony Pulis with a huge bag of money

OGS looked so much out of his depth it was scary, I imagine he went home every night and hugged his teddys (SAF and Ryan) and asked them for advice

I'm not convinced yet about Bruce. He's only had hold of average teams and can't stay in one place. His teams are usually a bit soft and he moans a hell of a lot. He would be perfect for Newcastle but it would only be then that we would have idea how good he really is because he's never going to get a job with us or spurs.

That's the thing with Steve Bruce, he's found his level with the likes of Hull. If, in the unlikely event, a club like Manchester United came in for him then I'd fear it would only end up like Moyes' reign there or Hogdson at the Shite.

While United fans may think VanGaal is the answer to all their problems and Moyes was a disaster, they should compare this seasons fixtures to the corresponding games last year.

In the PL this season they have played 9, won 3, drew 4, lost 2, points 13, goal diff, +3.
In the PL last season they had played 9, won 6, drew 2, lost 1, points 20, goal diff, +10.

A little bit surprised at the Rosler sacking, but it goes to show that chairmen nowadays are not prepared to give managers time to turn things around.  Even Whelan admitted himself (back in the media spotlight I see) that the decision appeared very harsh.

One team you expect to be in and around the top four or five of the Championship and they fail massively every year now.

The fact that Zingarevich turned out to be a complete fraud didn't help them over the last two seasons. They have new owners now who will no doubt want to bring their own candidate in.

Absolutely no idea. All's I know is that they've been shite on the pitch, dropping something like 26 points out of 39/40?

IIRC what happened was that Zingarevich was announced with great fanfare, got given a controlling stake and was expected to take over, only to disappear without trace at the end of last season. They've got some new owners (I looked them up, they're from Thailand) who only took charge in September, the uncertainty about the club and the fact that they couldn't really sign players for money affected them really badly.

Maybe a more experienced manager could've turned it around quicker and maybe Adkins could've done it too given some transfer funds in January but we'll never know.

The chairman again needs to take a long hard look at himself for making the appointment on first place. Interesting on Sky tonight, ever time the he's sacked the manager they've stayed up, on the occasions that he hasn't they've been relegated so he'll feel justified if they stay up. If he made a decent decision or stuck by a manager in the first place he maybe wouldn't keep fucking up though.

Hughton is shit. Spent a fortune on goalscorers at Norwich and forgot to buy any footballers to supply them with. Took them down as a result. Plus, he basically gave Liverpool 6 points and a further +12 in the GD column by rolling over whenever they faced them.

Tony to WBA is a great appointment for a club like them with no ambition other to finish between 15th and 10th every season. Got to say my hatred of Pulis completely disappeared after he masterminded the destruction of Liverpool's title challenge. Now I quite like him.

So it sounds like Pardew to Palace and Pulis to West Brom.

So who is going to be the new Newcastle manager I wonder? It always turns out to be a bit of a laugh, the return of King Kev for a very short time, Alan Shearer getting them relegated, Joe Kinnear and his Charles Insomnia & Yohann Kebab foul mouthed rants...

I'm going to name one: Ally McCoist! - Currently on gardening leave at Rangers, Ashley has his ties to that club. There is a bit of a farce over McCoist's contract as Rangers can't afford a compensation deal for him so Ashley can use Newcastle to pay for the compensation and give him an 18 month contract or something like that for the Toon while allowing Rangers to find a long term replacement for McCoist while also waiting to find another long term appointment for Newcastle. Plus McCoist used to play for Sunderland back in the 80's so that will piss off the Newcastle fans which Ashley seems to be very good at doing.

The list of potential candidates to replace him is absolute drivel. They probably have a combined IQ of about 100. From the BBC:

"Former Tottenham boss Tim Sherwood is the early odds-on favourite with bookmakers to replace Redknapp.
However, Wilkins noted there were potential candidates among the Loftus Road club's backroom staff, including Glenn Hoddle.
"They have an abundance of quality there in Glenn, Kevin Bond, Joe Jordan, Les Ferdinand," said Wilkins."

Randy Lerner was always given as the example of an ideal takeover. Not really worked out has it?

To be fair in his first 4 years he pumped in 100m net spend on transfers ignoring the signing on fees and massive wages they were paying the players.

The 2 problems were, firstly he gave the money to oneill he wasted a lot of it on dross like 10m on Davies, 8m on reo Coker, 8m on cuellar, 5m on harewood, 5m on Sidwell, 5m on shorey etc etc.

The second was that he came over thinking if you spend a lot of money you will have success whereas even 25m on transfers each season doesn't mean you will win trophies or get in the champions league you still have to spend that money very well because of the other clubs competing.

Had he come here like he looked into it might have been a very different outcome. With moyes better record of transfers than MON, and more cautiousness in his approach to spending it wouldn't have been wasted as badly and as a better manager was more likely to have got into the top 4.

As it happened in those few years villa were close but not quite there competing for 4th, lost a cup final and Lerner thought don't want to keep putting the money in for achieving being close so has been not spending and looking to sell since. Lerners biggest issue was not understanding football or the English game rather than being a bad owner in that spell in my opinion.

He came in allowed them to spend a load of money without crippling them, which was spent badly. Ill judgement and some bad mistakes shouldn't put him in the awful owners category. A different club and a different manager it could have been a lot different for him (basically us and moyes :-) )

I know what you mean but as a leader of a company, corporation or club, you can't have a situation where someone in charge makes actions (releases funds to a manager) then the manager is blamed when it goes wrong. It doesn't work like that. He presided over that management team (O'Neil and chums) and over that rate of release of funds. Those were his mistakes so his ownership was, is, and has been a failure. What you appear to be saying is that the only judgement of good ownership is whether you have loads of money to throw away, and whether you have the balls to speculate to accumulate.

I'm not defending that allowing oneill to spend how he did as it was clearly a load of money wasted. But at times he gets lumped in with some of the other joke owners that have come over here when I think he was good in that his intentions for villa were really good and he probably thought along the lines of if we spend cash we will get success when in reality it doesn't work always unless you are talking mega money and even then it took city 4 years of about 200m a season to win the league.

He made mistakes in letting oneill run free no doubt and someone who knew football well might have gone no way are you paying 5m for maroon harewood for instance!

If they had been more cautious and perhaps planned their spending better over a longer period it could have worked for them but I guess his expectations of quick success clouded what in reality they needed.

As you say, he seems a bit of a hardman, he had a run in with fans earlier on in the season and you wonder what he's like with the players some of the time.

I remember once, think it was last season when they where in the championship.

Apparently the ref came into the dressing room simply to tell him the half time was up and that the players where due to come back out.

He did this while Pearson was still addressing his players and apparently he took it as a sign of disrespect, went completely off the hook and followed the ref out and began throwing digs at him.

He seems a right weird bastard like.

It's not like he did it over 100 odd games though, it was based on 17 Premier League games and a win rate of about 58%. In total he managed 28 games, won 14 and lost ten. I'm pretty sure a lot of those losses came towards the end as well after the "new manager" effect wore off?

That's the main reason why I hate him banging on about it, it was only a short space of time he did this in.

And he felt he had a divine right to be given the job based on that, even though he had no managerial experience prior to that.

Love him to flop at villa.

How can any football club owner think that Tim Sherwood is a good choice? What exactly has he done? He had a win percentage of 50% (won 14 of 28 games) and didnt actually win anything. I just dont get how he has been linked with several jobs and now has a three year contract after doing nothing

9th May so not for a while.

They've wasted a pretty large amount of money since they came back up in 2007 I think it was and apart from one season under Bruce, where it seemed like half of their first XI were on loan and they finished 10th or something, and a brief spell with O'Neill they've been woeful both in terms of results and performances.

I'm not sure how much the last two managers had to say on the spending of players. After the Martin O'Neill debacle where he spent £32m on Steven Fletcher, Adam Johnson and Danny Graham, they brought in a director of football called Roberto De Fanti following the appointment of Di Canio and signed something like 16 players, most of which Di Canio publicly stated in didn't want. De Fanti was sacked after one season and they replaced him with Lee Congerton but I've no idea how much influence he's had over transfers. I imagine the likes of Rodwell and Defoe were down to him whereas the low cost signings like Buckley and Bridcutt were the manager's players.

They'll never have any sort of stability with the current group of players they have. According to an article I read from the secret footballer recently as well as various rumours, Sunderland have a large contingent of players who are extremely unprofessional (led by Fletcher) and player power rules the roost at the stadium of light. Di Canio had the right ideas in this sense with his strong stance on discipline but unfortunately he was possibly the worst man manager in  football but the Sunderland board made their bed when they give in to the players and sacked him (He should have been sacked, but not at the request of the players). Unsurprisingly, nothings changed under Poyet.

They're just going to keep repeating the pattern until they change the culture of the club.

Post by: Ridge on March 17, 2015, 01:31:56 AM
As an aside, my initial thought when I read Larsson had come out late and injured was that Poyet had waited for Larsson out of bitterness. As in Poyet had held him responsible and Larsson had taken his time in hoping he would sub him off. But when I watched it, it seemed a lot more mundane.

Larsson has a bit of the Swedish David Bentley about him, so wouldn't be entirely surprised if he wanted to limp around like a bender trying to be a hero. Poyet also didn't really have many options other than Jordi Gomez on bench, but couldn't switch formations to accomodate? If you rate him highly enough as a player to wait for him, it would be understandable in an important game, but why risk further injury to make him hobble around for 45 mins in a 4-0 defeat.

I can just imagine the conversation now:

"So Steve, do you fancy coming to Newcastle - you know, the team whose fans hated the club you used to manage when you were at Middlesbrough?  Oh, and don't let me forget - our club is in complete meltdown: the fans hate the owner, like punching horses and have massively inflated delusions of where they should be, the current manager is a compete brainless Neanderthal who has no working relationship with the players whatsoever (but you will have to retain him as coach), the players couldn't give a shit if they go down or stay up, there is no morale at all, and the owner would rather go to Rangers and won't give you any money to spend. And by the way, you've got 3 games to salvage our season after 8 consecutive defeats, starting next Saturday".

Mourinho apparently waiting in the wings if Van Gaal slips up.

It might be paper talk but if it's true then it confirms Man Utd as a directionless mess. They seem to lack any foresight and vision off the pitch: marginalising the academy, haphazard, frivolous player recruitment, ill-thought-out short-term managerial appointments and an amateur given free reign in the board room. Their strategy seems to be no more than throwing money at problems.

Mourinho would no doubt have them competing at the top in no time but he never builds anything or leaves a legacy.

They missed the boat with Ancelotti in my view.

It's weird in the uk media how all newcastle's woes are put at the blame of Ashley. Fair enough up until last summer but he has spent and trusted McClaren (who we all knew was a shit manager though).

Now they can't pin the funds argument on Ashley, it's now how the overall structure is the problem or its Graham Carr's fault. McClaren worked in the exactly the same system at FC Twente being given players and told to manage so it was 'reasonable' to appoint him with that role at Newcastle. There are many things wrong there but they were all there before Ashley.

Eh? Shearer took over from Kinnear, who wasn't sacked. He had heart problems. Ashley's sackings are Allardyce at New Year, who he didn't appoint, Hughton (early in the season), and now McClaren. You can include Keegan technically, given it was contructive dismissal. So McClaren is only one you could say was a late sacking.

Should be playing the wide role instead of Sissoko. McClaren was making some truly bizarre team selections towards the end, like putting Gouffran in when Townsend got injured whilst Perez and Aarons sat on the bench. His decision to play him up front alone at Goodison was fairly brutal too. He played that role last season when we were short of options and he's clearly not suited to it. McClaren asked him to do it and left Mitrovic on the bench  :eh:

Maybe the Scottish League could get a little more exciting, and I use that term loosely, with the return of Rangers, plus Aberdeen and Hearts giving it more of a go.

Paints Giggs in a very good light.

Refers to recent signings as "van Gaal's signings."

No way United commissioned that article to justify van Gaal's soon-to-happen sacking...

Edit: Looks like he's already been sacked. Either way, the point stands. As if they needed any other ammunition besides "5th place."

He needs to fuck off from Man Utd and see if he can make a career for himself anyway. It's all very well being respected at Man Utd but he was never going to get handed the job as his first full time management job. Bolton would certainly be a test given their financial position but they will be looking to come straight back up from League 1.

Talking of Bolton and their managers, Lennon is favourite for the Hibs job.

I'm not sure Moyes would necessarily want the Hull job. I could see him going to Sunderland and doing a very good job of completing the job that Sam Allardyce started in making them more solid and hard to beat. I could see Moyes doing a similar job at Sunderland as he did at Everton, which I'm sure most Sunderland fans would be more than happy with right now, a solid mid-table premier league side with the foundations for the next manager to take them to the next level.
I just don't see Moyes viewing the Hull job in the same light as Sunderland. I think he would see Hull as too big a step down. Sunderland are still quite a big club, Hull just aren't.

He came in and saved their arses when they were nailed on to go down to League One, then new owners came on and try to "implement their vision" (=want to pursue their delusions of grandeur). Rowett would've definitely got them promoted, given a half-decent transfer budget.

I wonder if Giggs will be interested again or maybe this is what he saw happening so avoided it. They need a firefighter type manager to come in but there aren't many out there at the moment that aren't already in jobs.

Now they're this season's Aston Villa.

Gary Rowett would be a solid choice as he knows the championship, which is where they'll end up next season.

As an aside, Rowett got sacked because he had applied for the Fulham and QPR jobs and so the Bham owners thought fuck it, let's replace him before he leaves.

If they were relegated I could understand it but he's led them to a title with a team that was touted for relegation last year. Even finishing top 10 this year would be excellent work with the players they have.

I'm only surprised at the timing of it, I thought they'd wait until they were out of the Champions League although I can understand that Premier League survival is the priority. You'd think they'd have done it after the Millwall game or even the Swansea one rather than wait until now though.

There's no loyalty when comes to Premier League survival, that's been the case for years and for all they won the league last year he's not the first title winning manager to get the boot the season after. The fact it wasn't a 'top team' that won it means the Lineker's of the world can be outraged but if it was any 'top' title winning team the manager would have been sacked months ago after spending £80m in the summer.

Everything fell in to place last year for an average squad and an average manager and now it's come back to bite them in the arse. He can walk away with his head held high for what he achieved which is probably more than the players can.

Think the Leicester owner must have lost his head up his own arse. The Champions League is surely the priority and they're still well in that quarter final. League form has suffered, but he won Leicester the league, that's the most ridiculous thing I've seen in sport. Surely that credit is worth far more than the current issues.

I think it must be Mancini waiting in the wings.

On a side issue, if, and I know it is a big if, Leicester won the Champions league would it only be the top three teams in the League who qualify with them for next season, or would it still be top 4 plus Leicester?

Post by: toffee_scot on February 24, 2017, 03:08:23 PM
I am not too surprised about the sacking but I am slightly surprised at the general outrage from the media. The reality is that Leicester are in a genuine relegation battle in the Premier League and that competition always takes priority. There seems to be something not right at all at the club, there is talk that the players had lost confidence in the manager, if that is the case and the damage seems irreparable then something drastic has to change.

Ranieri did brilliantly to win the title and will forever be remembered in Leicester history for that. But his primary mandate has always been to keep Leicester in the Premier League, this season he has struggled badly.

Lineker is annoying. Done absolutely nothing for the game since retiring except sit on a couch and think of shit jokes. His football knowledge is stuck in the 80's where he belongs.  His comments make him sound a bit stupid. It's only because he speaks properly that there's an illusion he's intelligent.

That Shakespeare bloke doesn't come across very well in his press conference today, sounds like he's definitely one of the staff that turned on Ranieri.

Apparently there's some of Pearson's 'old guard' wanting him back, what does that show for the lack of ambition from some of them.

from what i've read it seems in Italy he would regularly fall out with players after 2-3 years. with leicester it looks worse because they've just won the title.

Just have a listen to the Soccer Saturday panel.


The thing I find extremely ironic is that Sky Sports employees are complaining that football is losing its soul and that the owners of teams like Leicester are more interested in staying in the Premier League and making money than risk relegation.

I don't suppose the pundits issued a similar outcry when Chelsea sacked Mourinho last season when they were in a similar, but much less precarious position after having won the title the season before.

Getting a bit bored it all now, all this 'false outrage' you'd think he'd died the way people are outpouring about him, mainly by the same media and pundits who would be calling for most other title winning managers heads if they were in the same position.

They've been getting worse as the season goes on and he hasn't looked like turning things around. They were realistic enough to know that it was unlikely they'd get close to defending their title but they at least expected to stay in the league which is looking more and more unlikely as the weeks go on.

This is the same leading argument as "why do people protest against Trump but not Saudi Arabia?".

And the answer is the same too: because nobody expects any better from Chelsea. They're a gang of classless cunts. But Leicester, well, people thought maybe they're not.

Basically the owners dropped a massive bollock by handing out massive contracts like cookies, and now they've panicked and pulled the trigger. As if it was Ranieri who offered the new contracts, or allowed people like Walsh to go.

Of course, having allowed the situation to deteriorate to this point they had no other option, but at least a hint of an acknowledgement of the massive fuck-up they made would've made the move far more palatable.

Dortmund supposedly looking at Favre.

I'm not sure what Tuchel's done to lose favour there (some say transfer disagreements, some say Tuchel is difficult/detached on a personal level) but I'm still a fan. There's no way Moshiri/Kenwright would entertain the idea but I'd ditch Koeman for Tuchel in a heartbeat. I'd do the same for Favre, mind you (that ship has sailed unfortunately).

It would be a perfect time for Arsenal to let Wenger go. Even if rumours of Tuchel being difficult are true, he's an outstanding tactician and he'd breathe new life into an already excellent squad.

I feel sorry for Moyes in a way, that Man United job has tarnished him.

I felt sorry for him after the United job, where he was clearly brought in with the expectation of failure. Everyone knew that Ferguson neglected the team for the last few years of his tenure and it was all gonna fall apart without him, so they needed a gullible idiot who would parade up and down being dead proud of himself, acting all billy big bollocks, not knowing that it's all a ruse.

But after that he had a genuine chance to become a better manager at Real Sociedad and he chose to be a dick instead, then he was given another chance to restore his reputation with Sunderland and he fucked that up just as badly.

He can only blame himself for how his career has turned out after United.

Giggs is apparently in the running. Pulis has been mentioned, but I'm not sure that's credible.

The last three managers have been young, ex players, rather than those at the latter ends of their managerial careers.

The form book would say Giggs, when you look at Hughes, Speed, Coleman.

Thing is, he finished 9th three times in a row with Stoke. I'm not sure they're going to do any better than that. Maybe 7th or 8th is achievable in an outstanding season, but it's very difficult to go anywhere but backwards from 9th with Stoke. And then when that inevitable happens, the manager loses his job. Not a fan of his, but have some sympathy with him losing his job on this occasion, and wondering exactly what Stoke fans expect.

No manager experience? Never an issue for Hughes or Speed. International football is far from the pinnacle it used to be. I'd argue it's the perfect place for an up and coming manner to prove himself.

4 games as caretaker isn't exactly much to judge someone on, and it was two years ago. I think that's a harsh judgement, based on his lack of charisma. Much was made of his lack of commitment to friendlies, but in reality it mattered little. And certainly won't impact his managerial ability. He's massively respected within the game, that will count for far more.

Aside from a lot of Evertonians not wanting Aldardyce as their manager, a good few West Ham supporters did not want Moyes.
A fair number of West Brom fans did not want Pardew, who's job apparently is in danger at present.
Lambert at Stoke and Pellegrini at Southampton weren't exactly first choices either.
Even Mourhino has annoyed a few Man Utd assholes who are not happy with the style of football, and there is always the annual Arsenal/ Wenger shouts.

So much for the fans have a voice, some chairmen just don't listen.

Reports in Germany are claiming that Thomas Tuchel has signed a two-year contract with French giants Paris Saint Germain. Now, though, it seems like his future lies in France, and that means current manager Unai Emery will have to - whether he likes it or not - depart the club at the end of the season.

Would anyone be happy if we got Conte?

He's certainly a step up from what we've had, but I don't think he's the right man for us.

I think Derby are tightening things up after a few years of spending big (by Championship standards) and not actually getting in to the PL. Stoke at least have parachute money and a couple of assets to sell.

He made some cringeworthy comments about his loyalty to Derby so it looks really bad from that perspective but I get it from an "ambition" point-of-view.

Think thereís a general trend of fans wanting more than just points.

The cost of going to the match is starting to catch up in terms of expectations and the longer clubs get massive money from Sky the chances of going down are reduced.

With that increased safety net, clubs will be more open to getting more attacking managers.

Heard yesterday that if he gets the job, Lampard, would take Jody Morris with him as part of his backroom staff, so possible that Terry would follow also as his captain.

Suddenly leaving Barnsley to go to Leeds doesn't seem such a clever career move.

I read somewhere last week when the rumours started about a new manager that they would talk to our former gravy slugger.

The media have changed the name of Derby County to Lampard's Derby . Similar to Gerrard's Rangers north of the border . :Sick:

So Chelsea have a manager yet?

Players must be due back soon - be weird without an appointment made.

Given Napoli have already replaced Sarri to let him join Chelsea its all getting a bit awkward.  Can only assume Chelsea thought someone would come in for Conte to avoid them having to pay him off?

Sarri hasn't officially been released by Napoli though, he's still under contract apparently. As mad as that sounds!

But they've replaced him?  You can't replace someone who's still there, thats an industrial tribunal minefield!

Maybe he's on gardening leave? I know they've replaced him but his contract has not been terminated. Probably see it as a way of getting compo out of Chelsea. And the reason they haven't got rid of Conte is they don't want to pay his severance, and they thought he would be the one asking to leave, rather than them pushing him out the door. I think they thought he was going to go back to the Italy job, from what I've read/heard.

Total mess of a situation, further muddled by Abramovic's visa issues.

Sucha a convoluted, drawn out process. Can easily see them having a shit season off the back of all this uncertainty.

I really hope this fucks their season up again. You'd think the amount of managers they've sacked in recent years they'd have a better procedure in place for this.

I must say, I'm rather impressed with this. Almost exactly 18 months.  :)

Chelsea 13 wins on the bounce. Hard to think that at some point, quiet probably in the next 18 months, Conte will be sacked.  :snigger:

4 games in is a bit soon. Brought in a lot of players in the close season which rarely works but you need to give them a bit more than 4 games to try and gel.

Nah, he's had a bit of beginner's luck. He'll be out by Christmas and replaced by a proper manager.

My apologies Darren Moore.
