Seriously Silly

Tuesday, May 15, 2007

Sam Allardyce's appointment as Newcastle's new manager has filled the Magpies with ideas too far above their station. This club haven't won a domestic trophy since 1955, which for a "big club" is truly awful everyway you look at it.

Allardyce is now expected to do wonders, buy players and instill a winning mentality in the dressing room -- it's all well within his limits as a manager, and although he's moved to a club who haven't performed at the heights of Bolton in recent years it seems like he's taking a step in the right direction.

Bolton fans have confessed themselves to be disappointed in Fat Sam, but he's taken Bolton as far as he can and it's time for someone else to take up the challenge. Conversely, no manager has taken Newcastle as far as they can go for many years, and it can only be seen as a step up for Allardyce, moving him ever closer to the England job he covets.

Pearce has been moved along by his employers, and cites poor funding as a major reason for his poor performance as City manager -- regardless of poor funding, silly money was spent on Corradi and Samaras, and seriously-silly money was paid for SWP. Is Pearce just a rubbish manager? We don't think so, however he still has a lot to prove and perhaps taking some time out with the under-21s could be the tonic.

With Pearce being sacked, Jewell moving on from Wigan and acts such as Louis "I talk about myself in the 3rd person" Van Gaal and Ronald Koeman, Heavens11 can confirm that silly season has started.

Chelsea are expected to confirm the signing of Sidwell later this week, who could either become best buddies with bench-mate SWP, or turn out to be an inspired (and more importantly English) purchase. Time will tell.

Finally, FIFA are investigating the Tevezgate scandal. We no longer care, and expect very little to come of it, especially with FIFA's involvment.
