Missing the transfer season by fourteen seconds has probably cost him his job. Not only are they a player short, but the owners are paying wages to a player they can't use. It's easy to see why they've lost confidence in him with the team sliding down the League.
Was that actually Shakespeare's fault? If not then his bosses basically ripped the heart out of his midfield and then failed to replace it...which makes it incredibly harsh to then sack him. As others have said though he probably deserves it after knifing poor old Claudio in the back.

Dyche would be a great appointment for them, but if he's sensible he'll wait for the Everton job.

Coleman? He was an awful club manager and has survived on Bales' coat-tails quite a bit with Wales. I think that would be a poor appointment.

Allardyce? I thought he 'retired'? Why is he now hawking himself about for other jobs?

The one I'd love to see is Ancelotti. Milan aside (where he did very well) he's one of the managers who I think is a good manager of brilliant players, but I'd love to see what he could do with a more limited squad.

Perfect opportunity for them to offer it to a young English coach but I bet they won't.

Seen them linked with ancelotti and Mancini. Bit of a joke. They need to aim their sights much lower or go down the route above.

and a good possibility Barkley will stay there pending on manager of course
If they get a decent manager in who rates him it will increase his chances of staying a bit, but we will still be a far more attractive proposition.

This one is down to Levy basically. If we are serious in Jan and don't play games I see no reason we won't sign him.

Ryan Giggs on the vacant Leicester and Everton jobs:

"For me these are clubs I would be interested in. I think you look at those two teams, Leicester being champions two seasons ago, Everton being a fantastic club with a fantastic history."

In other words: Uh, yeah, Leicester, Everton, whatever. Just 'gis a job. Not fussed.

What a fucking plank. Wouldn't touch him with a barge pole. Flake, oddball, seems dull as drizzle.

There is actually talk of Everton looking to bring Rafa in...

RAWK would have a meltdown on top of their current meltdown. Please let it be true.
Rafa actually makes a lot of sense. Say what you like about him but he's been a far far better manager than Koeman ever has.

Also makes sense from a personal perspective as he's clearly fed up with Mike Ashley and let's not forget, his wife and kids still live on Merseyside ever since he was with Liverpool so it would be a chance for him to finally live with his family again. In his situation I'd definitely be looking to bag the Everton job.

Is "could care less" an Americanism? I hear loads of people over here say it.
Definitely an Americanism. Some people say it in England but basically everyone says it in America. I assume English people have just picked it up from the TV/fiilms like everything else.

Agreed. Like the Phil Neville link as well - they've done absolutely nothing to warrant a top level job. Nothing. Why aren't these idiots looking at lower league jobs/coaching roles in top teams to further their managerial education? No sensible club at PL level would offer them the reigns anyway.

Gary Neville - as good a pundit as he is proved precisely the same thing in Spain. Being a good manager takes time, development and experience.
