Quick, jump back on again Big Sam for your return to the North East.
Room for you as well Neil Redfearn but donít forget to get off at Rotherham rather than Leeds!
Since I wrote my blog, the managerial merry-go-round shows no signs of slowing down any time soon. JŁrgen Klopp has been appointed Liverpool's new manager, if you believe the papers, his three-year deal is worth a staggering £15m. The 48-year-old German replaces Brendan Rodgers who was relieved of his duties at the weekend.
Another Manager to step into a hot seat this week was David Dunn at Oldham Athletic, although Iím sure his deal wonít be quite so lucrative.
The League One side have appointed caretaker boss Dunn as their new manager on a permanent basis. The 35-year-old joined Oldham as a player in July and takes the reigns following Darren Kelly's departure last month.
Heís at it again, two more goals for the prolific striker to ruin Scotlandís evening at Hampden Park. Strikes within minutes of the kick-off and right on the final whistle proved what a top striker Robert Lewandowski is. What would Premier League teams give to have him leading their attack? Arsenal must be worried about the upcoming Champions League games against Bayern Munich!
I notice that Fleetwood Town sacked their manager Graham Alexander after a 5-1 defeat at Gillingham this week. In comparison to the results quoted, Alexander's last game in charge sounds like a tense tight affair !!
We're glad to see we have some readers over in the UK!
We're also very glad when our work has inspired further study from others. We should be positing more soccer material in the next term, so please keep an eye on the site!
Keep up the good work
I'm glad my travel theory didn't pan out in the case of Hull City's long trip to Cardiff City this week!
But in the Championship on the same night it did it did do for Rotherham, Brentford and MK Dons - although that could simply be because they were the weaker of the two teams in their respective games?
