We’re underway in 2010/11, and whilst some players are taking their first steps into management, others are wishing they hadn’t bothered.
Middlesbrough’s relegation leads to their star player being released, which is Juventus’ gain
My 10th and final taker plays up front for goodness sake, what a fool. Anyway, it’s a kind Champions League group draw so that should help. Forest lose in the Prelims to Fenerbahce so I’m flying the Champions League flag solo
Another England legend under fire is Alan Shearer, player manager of Notts County
Things to note here, one, he is 40, and still plays himself every game. Secondly, he took over with Notts County near the bottom of division 1 – they now reside in division 3. It’s fair to say it hasn’t gone well.
Radomir Antic is removed from his role, leaving Alex Ferguson & Nigel Spackman as the only managers who are still in the same jobs they were on 16th July 1997.
It’s a good squad, really, but with Marco out injured it exposes the lack of depth in the quality. Wiltord, picked up on a free from Villa after their relegation released him, isn’t all that good. Keane has always been hit and miss whilst Bakayoko is an old man now. Ramasut, or the reincarnation of Ryan Giggs, is used sparingly mainly because he’s not a forward and I don’t play wingers, so it’s tricky. Junior Brookes has just been capped by LVG, which is tremendous.
Bryan Robson’s Coventry look set for an early return to Division 1, likewise for Gerry Wilson (who?) and his Watford team. The aforementioned Spackman completes the bottom 3. McManaman’s clubs new and old are also in deep trouble, but there’s a long way to go.
Can I make it 3 titles on the trot? Will I win the coveted Super Cup? All big questions that will be hopefully be answered in the next update
