Playing Musical Chairs!

Playing Musical Chairs!

Sat in the pub, yesterday afternoon, watching the trio of broadcast FA Cup games, a few thoughts were exchanged with my fellow drinkers.

Apart from some rather loud laughter at the demise of Liverpool, at the hands of Paul Scholes favoured Oldham, much of the talk related to the managerial situation at the top of the Premier League.

Firstly, you couldn`t help but hear the disdain in which the Chelsea supporters hold for Rafa Benitez, clearly a marriage not made in heaven and a marriage we can`t see lasting considering the Russian`s record over the last few years.

Secondly, although Manchester City scraped through, in the Saturday televised game, the mutterings about Mancini`s future continue to entertain us. Will those who pay his huge salary be content with yet more total European failure?

Down the Anfield Road, Brendan Rodgers may be finding that his honeymoon period at Anfield may be coming to an end, following their cup demise, plus, in our opinion, he`s not going to be in the same class as those who came from the Anfield boot-room is he?

Which brings us back to Sir Alex and how blessed we are to have the wily Scot in charge. We can only hope he goes on for a few more years otherwise, without a tangible, available, candidate, we may find ourselves playing the same merry game of musical chairs the others get continually involved in - not a nice thought!

Not a nice thought but I'm sure the club has been planning for this for a while now with Fergie having a lot of input as to who his successor should be. Obviously things don't always go to plan but even then there's a number of great coaches out there who could take the mantel and do well. Mourinho is a solid call but only to steady the ship. Guardiola isn't a bad shout but there's still massive question marks as to whether he's a great coach or just an average coach who inherited the best team in the world, will be interesting to see how he does at Bayern and is another whos not for the long term. Klopp and Loew seem to have similar footballing philosophies as that of our club and like fergie value hard work and determination as much as they appreciate technical ability. Laurent Blanc is a good coach and worthy of a shout also.
