Only one I could see is West Ham.

If he gets another gig as a pundit of MOTD will it then be Frank Lampard's Match of the Day?

Obviously it's funny to see Frank relieved of his duties today but I think it was a reasonably clever appointment by Abramovich. Lampard provided a useful and relatively popular distraction during the time when they were serving a transfer ban. He's probably added some value to some of their young players by actually fielding them from time to time and they've not really suffered too much in the end. It's not impossible Tuchel will yet get them a European qualification.


Yep this. They needed someone to tread water whilst the ban was served that the fans wouldn't get on his back straight away.

Apparently the assistant coach is the legendary Jody Morris and technical director is Petr Cech. Wonder whether Tuchel will be strapped in by Wednesday or one of them gets the gig?

I reckon Newcastle and Crystal Palace are the next jobs to become available. Roy's contract expires in the summer and there doesn't seem to be any appetite to offer him a new one.

Jody Morris swaying on the treatment table, hosing down Pulisic after a wayward pass and telling him to stick his 9/11...


Nailed on.

To be fair HKTC
Because a thing seems difficult for you, do not think it impossible for anyone to accomplish.

I mean, I get that it's Talksport (which we get here in drips and drabs), which means check your brain at the door, but what the fuck kind of logic suggests that a Big Six failure is the right call to lead a national team of England's ilk? No wonder England hasn't won a World Cup in 55 years.

Not like their rivals were signing much either at the time. They’re only a few points off top 4 with half a season left, Tuchel can definitely get them a spot, good appointment, massive upside in tactical nous. A shame really

It’s justifying the text centrally that gets me, like he wrote it to be a fucking plaque cast in bronze on a wall somewhere.

Interesting scenes in France where Marseille manager André Villas-Boas announced that he has offered his resignation this morning after the club signed Olivier Ntcham when he didn't want him.
For every step,the footprint was already there.
