    Rumour has it that the owners were feeling the team was getting distracted by his getting linked with every managerial vacancy going and had to act (and that he himself was floating his name around!). That plus he's prone to some real dressing room rages.... Still massively harsh - played 55, lost 3!!!

    Arsenal were comically bad.

    But he'd already gone out of his way distance himself from some jobs, ie Leicester. I dunno, I thought Leeds sacking Grayson was going to be daftest sacking of the season (talking of which, Bates and Warnock? Let the sparks fly) but this does take the biscuit. Be interesting to see where clark goes now.

    Leeds - Bates - Warnock

    The axis of evil is complete.

    ^^ T'would have worked either way! :lol:

    Billy was never getting that job though, too much history between him and Leeds from his Preston days.

    I thought that was Forest winning at home.....

    I thought Warnock hated Leeds. Obviously not.

    Can't see Grayson getting Huddersfield up either. His solution to drawing too many games will be to lose more of them.

    And Chelsea turn into Newcastle from a few years ago. Hilarious! Should have stuck with Jose, Roman!

    AVB is a dead man walking.

    Chelski have been playing catch-up every since the Special One got the boot and have never fully recovered. What are they on now? Six managers since Mourinho?

    I'd put money on Mourinho being back there next season.

    Long since patched up his spat with Worzel, and Jose I imagine will win La Liga this year and then stick two fingers up at it.

    Either way, even if that doesn't happen, the chances of AVB still being there next year, are practically non-existant!

    I see Jose returning but he will have less money to spend than he did back in 2004.

    I can't see him going back to be honest. Even if he did it would only end in tears.

    I would guess Mourinho is more likely to go to Liverpool or Manchester United (in fact I would be willing to bet the latter is the job he really wants) than back to Chelsea. He's not the type to walk a path he's already gone before.

    I've been saying for a long time that Mourinho is the only man I could imagine taking over at Old Trafford when Fergie is eventually carried out of there in a box.

    Redknapp could easily replace Fergie too.

    Hardly. He's only a couple years younger than Ferguson for a start and has won almost no trophies in his entire career as a manager.
