The word is Kean was informed of the owners' decision he was sacked but he refused to accept it and took training as normal, then called the chairwoman who wouldn't know a football if it her in the face. She then changed her mind about sacking him, and since she calls the shots he stays, but now surely it seems like a matter of time. There's always been speculation that Kean has something on Venky's, but I don't buy it. It would although make some sense as to why he's not been sacked when he should've been on at least three occasions.
It's an absolute fucking joke. There's already talk of big protests for the Wolves game in two weeks if he's still in charge. Instead of the ones like last year, fans will stay outside the ground to make a point when the game starts.
Shebby Singh said today that the attendances & lack of revenue with no sponsors are a major worry and that Kean is the reason for the attendances, and part of the reason we can't get a sponsor. That & the owners have shown they clearly can't run a football club.
As a Neutral this Kean stuff is great but i do hope he goes soon for the sake of the club.
Realistically who would you want Nige?
I was talking to a couple of my mates about this last night, one of a which is a Spurs fan who managed to turn me round on Alan Curbishley. My concern is he's been out of the game four years in terms of management but he did well getting teams in the league and keeping them there, all but once the first time with Charlton. I wouldn't mind him.
Tim Sherwood is a risk but he's mentioned as the favourite. He's got a great rep at Spurs according to my mate, and when I've seen him speaking he does seem very knowledgeable unlike Shearer who can fuck off. He was a disaster at Newcastle and shouldn't be touched.
Billy Davies is a great manager at this level but I have serious doubts about him keeping us up. Mick McCarthy wouldn't be a bad choice and I'd prefer him over Alex McLeish. I can't think of who else this, but it probably goes like this:
