After the outrage of Sir Alex Ferguson winning the World Cup for Italy on English soil, season 10 is up and running and it’s fair to say reputations have gone out of the window.
As Premier League champions, I’d expect to have a bit more clout by now but still nobody is that keen to join Darlington. I want the Champions League this season, it is the only thing I am missing from my tenure at Feethams. However, the group I’m in is going to mean I’ll likely have to wait another year
That is just awful. Hopefully the board will settle for me winning the Charity Shield instead.
I doubt that will cut it. To be honest, we’re hanging on in the Champions League. A home win over Celtic is matched by draws home and away to Bayern, plus the inevitable loss in the Nou Camp
Owen couldn’t quite get that hat trick in Munich that we all know and loved. The group is pretty tight, but with only top spot a guaranteed qualifier, I need to win the last two to have any chance.
Speaking of hat tricks in Munich, look who has been sacked
Transfers continue to be a little quiet, though I have the re-generation of Luis Enrique
Raul has also gone home, he made very little impact in Manchester
Obviously Sean Devine learnt a lot from me too
It’s still relatively early days as we creep into November but the table is…odd
Watford are top of the pile, which may surprise you. What won’t surprise you is that Brian Little is their boss, so those of you who were around for the first blog game will know what a hero he (apparently) is. Man City, who are also in Champions League, are not far behind me whilst West Ham are a continual threat. John Toshack still has Chelsea in and around the top of the table, whilst Gordon Milne has begun the destruction of Man Utd. Where are Liverpool you might ask…
Roy Evans is somehow still their manager, but he might not be if they are to be relegated. Leeds are also on the slide under Bryan Robson but the table is still very bunched up at this early stage.
Remember when Fergie won the World Cup? It means nothing to Italy
One loss to Finland and you’re on the verge of a sacking. For those wondering how Gerry Francis is getting on in Italy…
Silly Gerry. Milan were once such a great club. Anyway, join us next time to see if Fergie gets the sack and whether Watford are really going to win the Premier League
