WTF, how the hell could Southampton sack a good manager in Adkins and replace him with a guy who doesn't speak english, horrible move IMO, the chairman doesn't know what he's doing!
Indeed. Disgusting decision.
Prem title race is boring anyway and will remain boring regardless of whether manc blue or manc red wins it.
Exactly. And besides, finishing top 4 is all that matters these days. Fergie's the only one who actually cares about winning it.
Good to see Guardiola choosing Bayern over Chelsea and Man City. I don't like Bayern at all, but they are an absolutely massive club, possibly one of the 5 biggest football clubs on the planet, along with RM, Barça, Man Utd and Milan.
They are clearly the best run out of Europe's big clubs as well, based on everything from their financial health, the fact that they never really need to sell their star players to generate funds, and their attention to detail with matchday arrangements. Plus over the last 3 years or so, they have averaged the 2nd highest possession stats in Europe after Barça, and they have a good youth academy.
The Bundesliga is going places and an exciting place to be. The best run league in Europe by far, although English still has the best football league pyramid in the world by far as their lower leagues blow those in other countries out of the water.
To be fair many people wrongly lump Man City into the same category as Chelsea, but Sheikh Mansour is far more patient and supportive than Abramovich, and he would definitely give a manager more time to achieve success. Mancini probably would have been sacked at least 3 times during his reign at Man City had Abramovich been the owner.
