Fabio Capello Resigns

Recommended Posts

The spineless FA wil appoint him because being the peoples choice anyway no one can grumble if he screws up.

I'm not so sure he is the people's choice though. Seems to be more the media that is driving his appointment.

Good afternoon Rix,

You are certainly right that the media are driving it. It will ofcourse take them time to destroy Pearce's credibility but destroy it the will. Harry will be offered the job, he'll take it, he'll soon start to realise what a mistake he's made when the media turn on him as they surely will and England will continue to be total crap.

I suppose it is concievable that Mourinho, if he does leave Madrid in the summer, would coach us until whiskey nose retires but i just can't see it. What i can see is Daniel Levy sitting down for a chat with Benitez in the very near future. Before anyone says 'Oh but Benitez will want big transfer funds, disagree immediately. I think he'd look at our squad,loaned out players and think to himself that apart from a couple of additions he's already got what he needs.

The appointment of the manager is hugely important in keeping a certain pair of players too.

. He also has a good youth record Rodwell, Barkley, Rooney etc....

Re Moyes,

What do you mean he has a good youth record23.gif , a player is born and coached through his younger years neither of what Moyes would have had a great imput in.

We could also be in the frame as his stepping stone to Fergusons sucession.

That might just put off your owners two as it would create a huge stink if he left City for Utd, wouldn't it?

Not sure where you are getting this Mourinho to United speculation from carmine. I don't see that in the stars whatsoever. United will be looking for someone long term, not short, and the great one is only likely to give any job he does three years before he either gets bored, or people get bored of him.

If he does come to the Premiership i can only see him going to a low table club that has serious money - a QPR type situation. A place where he can make a big impact, and where he has power of the purse.

I think Benitez to Madrid is a likely one although his last year at Anfield and his time at Inter won't help his cause. However its not too difficult to rationalise both of those downward spirals.

I don't think Levy really reqiures any autonomy bar that of transfer dealings. Would you give someone control of your bank account?

I think Benitez would be fairly welcome too at WHL by the fans. He wouldn't get the sort of manlove he did at Anfield but he'd be given a fair crack of the whip. I'd rather look back at his earlier record at Liverpool and his tenure at Valencia.

Am i alone in thinking AVB will be booted and there will be the return of Morinho to Chelsea? That is if they qualify for the CL. I doubt Mourinho's ego would allow him to miss out on that.

Actually I think that it is very difficult to decide who Levy would choose. I doubt he would be driven by the 'fans favorite' for instance.

However, if you take a Mourinho, and things dont go his way, his natural approach will be something along the lines that I wasnt given the power over all the decisions in the first place.

One of the advantages of Moyes is that he has run the club for 10 years, had all his transfer fees taken away from him to pay off debts and hasnt blamed his owner for the fact that he had fuc_k all to make the club work. He would also have the decency to stay around if the club was successful while a Mourinho would simply use it as an excuse to take Spurs to a stepping stone to the ManU - the latest form of bling.

Personally I am not a great believer in the Hughes school of manager which is that if I stay at Fulham I wont win anything, so everybody will think I am crap.

There have been a couple of theoretical attempts to assign performance to the the quality of the team you have to manage.... This one is very good....(a little old I will admit)

https://docs.google.com/viewer?a=v&q=cache:dUeK6SrFICYJ:www.icmacentre.ac.uk/files/discussion-papers/DP_2011_24.pdf+he+Performance+of+Football+Club+Managers:+Skill+or+Luck%3F&hl=en&gl=th&pid=bl&srcid=ADGEESjto06ypn_usnuNRk2DfrtIrbsWDT8FJ5yJHxeRlmu1_TaVZ5v2qkIVlBjbJZh9C53A6D-b5PgGAvSDtZkDFGjs7OW1MCfLSIMyNCNOU-xhL6rzgIRXLK_vpSX4OIm82XhfU2B9&sig=AHIEtbQyflrqoZIomnchJ78EgioEy2i7eQ

And this one that uses a slightly different approach is specifically related to Moyes....

http://transferpriceindex.com/2011/07/the-declining-fortunes-of-david-moyes-an-mxir-analysis/

which points out that he was the least expensive CL qualifier in the history of the Premier League

And on a slightly different note here is the statistical analysis why if Liverpool wished to give themselves a 50:50 chance of qualifying for a CL spot this year they needed to spend an additional 27m quid. So why you would think their spending would indicate a 'title challenge' as you stated in a previous post, I have little idea.

Re Moyes,

What do you mean he has a good youth record23.gif , a player is born and coached through his younger years neither of what Moyes would have had a great imput in.

Is that a serious question?

Or is it more along the lines that as Redknapp claims to be financially incompetent, totally disorganized, totally illiterate, tactically unaware and close to retirement, (we will forget about the offshore bank account and the bungs) he might not actually be the best manager that England could come up with?

It's possible. Accumulator bet could make a lot of money.

You write very long posts Abrak.

Try this.

Posh English TV presenter: "There was a touch of Kantian Positivism about your second goal John"

Footballer John: "Well Brian....er ....er...er...I just stuck me left peg out and it went in the back of the net"

If a pretty girl says: "Dont think too much baby" probably best to listen.

Get the drift Abrak?

Look I do get your drift?

How come someone like you has managed to evolve without extinction?

It is not a miracle - the cockroach has been around for pretty much ever.
