[soccer] Managerial casualty #2 in England

Wow, Bobby Robson got the sack.

Or to put it with a euphemism: he was relieved of his duteis by mutual consent today:

Amazing, four games gone, two managers gone

This is of course a complete joke. What are we talking about, 4 games ?!!?

I wouldn't be surprised that this has anything to do with benching Alan Shearer in last weeks match.

Of course it is. Absolutely stupid. Last person to bench Shearer was Gullit, they lost the game and he wasn't in charge for the next Newcastle game. I wonder if Shearer gets the job now.

Well, it was already widely speculated that Shearer would get the job next season if Sir Bobby finally decided to call it a day.

My guess is he could get it as well, maybe as a player/manager this season with a strong assistent to back him up and after that a full time job.

Speculation from Sky Sports in the UK is that Houllier is being lined up for the year with Shearer as an assistant and then taking over next year.

Personally, I thought before the season that Newcastle had made the moves needed to challenge for the title (Butt and Kluivert). The other thing that irks me about this move is the role Bellamy and Dyer have played in this. Bellamy hit out during the week stating he'd seek a move if the club purchased Rooney. Dyer refused to play on the right side of midfield and was dropped. The Newcastle players seem to whine about everything rather than playing football. I can't help feeling that the players have got him sacked.

I heard Shearer refused the job.
Surprising.

Now Souness leaves Blackburn

All these vacancies are making me very nervous.. Palace have already had Steve Bruce taken off us.. we dont need to lose Iain Dowie too.

Houiller should never be a pro manager.
He's a self-centered, ego-maniac, self-satisfied failure.
