waiting for the dawn of light



Apparently trigger-happy chairmen do get results, implying that managers must do better or they are going to face the sack faster these days.

At the end of the article, there's even odds on who's the next manager to go.

This is one hell of a stressful job.

More on Juande Ramos' work at Spurs.

I don't think it will work out, but speculation is speculation: Jose is linked to the Valencia job.

Sacking coaches seem to be the in thing now

Valencia sacked coach Sanchez Flores. The club have named reserve team boss Oscar Fernandez as a caretaker coach.

I wonder who will be the next coach to get sacked!

It happens

Martin Jol has left Tottenham Hotspur. Their new coach would be Sevilla coach Juande Ramos.



In other news, meet the new Bolton manager, Gary Megson.

In Liverpool-related news, Liverpool's co-owner Tom Hicks insists Rafa is the man for Liverpool still, despite the recent run of results.

New manager for Spurs soon?

Klinsmann in talks with Spurs.

Interesting, but I guess it does make some sense that he would want to go back to his old club and manage.

The article also contains some stuff about Avram Grant towards the end, kind of funny if it was really true.

From The Guardian

Dr Wenger's Diagnosis on Football - A most interesting read into Arsene Wenger's beliefs and thoughts on the game.

The Chelsea situation - Not a pleasant topic. :/

Sir Alex pays tribute to Jose

Both Sir Alex and Roy Keane have come out to pay tribute to Jose.

Sir Alex's words especially move and sadden me :/

No surprise, then, that the United manager will miss the Special One. "Jose leaving Chelsea is a disappointment for the game," said Ferguson, who had bought a bottle of wine especially for Chelsea's visit to Old Trafford on Sunday.

"He was terrific for football and terrific for Chelsea. He brought something fresh and new to our game and I enjoyed the competition with him. I wish him well but I just don't know what I am going to do with my wine now."

Am sure you guys have heard the news by now. I think it's a great loss as Jose's brought a lot of glamour and attention to the EPL.

Here's a compilation of Jose's quotes, one of many things we'll miss about him.

There is a really interesting extract from the Arsenal Opus about Wenger and his temper, and a lot of it is in his own words, rather than journalistic guess work!

Elite Coach Forum

nutty_elf brought my attention to Jose's attendance at this Elite Coach Forum at the UEFA Headquarters and it sounds really interesting! However, why did they not invite Rafa omg.


The Chelsea manager is attending the UEFA Elite Coaches Forum, intended to allow those at the top of their profession to debate matters of mutual interest and to stimulate thoughts on the development of the game, away from the pressure of competition.

I wonder how many fancy Powerpoint templates would be used at the event. HAHAHA.

More can be found here!
