Thomas Tuchel sacked

The circus continues down the road.

:D
Saturday 9th November 1968: QPR V Burnley in the First Division - I saw the Hoops for the first time and my obsession began!

Apparently it's costing Chelsea £20M to get Graham Potter as their new manager from Brighton....
2022/2023.... Keep Calm, no matter the season, we'll follow our team.....

Potter is undoubtedly a good manager. However, at both Swansea and Brighton he operated at a much lower level.

Smaller transfer budget
Little or no European football and then when he got some it was in the lesser European competitions.
No experience of managing big International players
Not got near an English cup final (did win the Swedish cup in 2017)

I wish him well, but not his team, but I really think it will end in tears. Second place is not good enough for Chelski, and if he doesn't hit the ground running, he will be open to accusations of being out of his depth. At the top of the Premier League you don't get two to three years to settle in. His predecessor has been sacked despite winning the Champions League and getting to two FA Cup Finals.

So good luck, I think you will need it.

His bank manager will be rubbing his hands in glee.

But that’s what it is all about.

Really ? You don't think it's possible that a young English manager who started his career 11 years ago in the fourth division of Swedish football, took that team to the top flight and European football, and has stepped up at every level since might just genuinely want to test himself at one of the PL's biggest clubs ?

And I thought I was cynical.
Are headphones getting bigger, or are idiots getting smaller ?

Indeed, five year deal.
