Who would want to be a Premier League manager, as we hear today that Chelsea have sacked Luiz Felipe Scolari, and Portsmouth have sacked Tony Adams.
Luiz Felipe Scolari – lasted half a season at Chelsea – give us a break!
That’s what comes of not winning on Saturday.
Both managers have not even been in charge for a full season at either of their clubs, but it looks like Chelsea’s inability to win at home, they could only draw again with Hull City at Stamford Bridge on Saturday 0-0, has cost the former Portugal manager his job.
Well they didn’t give the Brazilian much of a chance did they?
While Scolari’s dismissal is somewhat surprising, Tony Adams departure is less so, since he has won but 2 of 16 games in charge at Fratton Park, since he replaced Harry Redknapp earlier in the season.
And Portsmouth were beaten 3-2 by Liverpool on Saturday, after leading in that home game, 2-1, after 85 minutes.
There are rumors that Portsmouth, who are now 16th in the league with 24 points, 3 points behind Newcastle, but with a game in hand, are ready to sign former Chelsea Manager, Avram Grant.
Grant used to be at Portsmouth, when Redknapp was there. That’s unless Chelsea beat them to it.
It looks like any manager these days, who happens to go on a bad run, gets the sack, with big money from the world-wide TV revenues, making clubs desperate to stay in the top flight.
Of course, with Chelsea, they want to win the league, but they should have kept the special one. Their next manager will be their 4th one, under Russian owner Roman Abramovich.
Oh well, it looks like Chelsea and Portsmouth may be trying to challenge Newcastle’s record of 4 managers within the last two years.
It’s good the Newcastle club is stable right now. 😀
