He was handsome back then. Definitely looks like Jan.
Do you think Stoke will stick with Hughes? Would they bring Pulis back?
No and no IMO. The way Stoke discarded Pulis, simply saying well done but we don't want to play your style any more, probably wound him right up. Don't think he would want to go back.
But Hughes won't last the season.
Nor should he. He really is a nothing manager, kinda just coasts along. Long run of bad form, followed by a few encouraging results, then revert back to type. Another manager who has been given far too many opportunities.
Clement out at Swansea. Pulis in?
Where have you heard that?
Has to be Pulis if they want a prayer at staying up
Pulis in at Swansea I reckon.
Swansea have confirmed it. https://twitter.com/SwansOfficial/status/943571386769006598
It's on the BBC sport site too.
He never had a chance once they sold Siggy and Llorente.
Mentioned this before, but Clement seems to completely change the moment he gets a top job. As a #2 he comes across as calm, charismatic & grown-up. But put him in as #1 and he turns into a red-faced panic merchant who's kinda childish and not terribly authoritative.
Pulis has taken over at Middlesborough...I didn't know Monk had quit!
uh oh. New manager bounce...
Swansea closing in on former Sheffield Wednesday boss Carlos Carvalhal
Carvalhal left Sheffield Wednesday by mutual consent on Christmas Eve after two and a half years managing at Hillsborough, in which he twice took them into the Championship play-offs.
Confirmed 12 mins later: https://twitter.com/SwansOfficial/status/946350075277692928
Well Watford away is their next game, hopefully they wreck his confidence early on.
I didn’t even realise Monk was manager
The Monk/Carvalhal situation is ridiculous. There was a big Boro-Wednesday game last week, billed as a play-off 6-pointer, with both managers under pressure to move in the right direction. Wednesday were leading on the half hour, but two late goals nicked it for Boro.
Net result: Both managers got the sack. Nuts.
And one got the one of the others former jobs which was a promotion
The Swansea appointment could be good planning. He might just keep them up this season, but if he doesn't he's already got experience of the championship and did well getting Wednesday to the playoffs twice.
