Hot Seat Narratives: Looking Beyond the Manager

thetwounfortunates at related • 0 views
[T]he stats relating to the duration of managerial spells are, as you might expect, damning. This season, the average length of employment across the Premier and Football League's 92 clubs is 1.64 seasons. In the Championship the mean is even worse, standing at 0.82 seasons. Between the Premier League and League Two, 47 of the 92 managers currently in position are yet to complete a full season with their club (which will rise to 48 when Mansfield appoint a replacement for Paul Cox).

Troy Deeney and Matej Vydra, contributors of so many of Watford's many goals this term, were mentioned by TTU staff, as was David Marshall, whose prowess at the other end of the pitch for Cardiff didn't go unnoticed.

So Football is officially dead then – beside images of sideburns, NHS celebrations, Kenneth Branagh in a top hat, a Somali-born hero, David Rudisha, the lightning bolt and the tranquil surrounds of 'Eton Dorney', the game has lost its sheen – embattled as it was when Freddie Flintoff inspired an Embrace song in 2005 and Jonny drop kicked that ball two years before.

Jake turned down loan deal to stay at Spurs

TottenhamBlog.com at related • 0 views

Most Spurs fans will be grateful for an early weekend kick off as a chance to get back to the football after a mixed week at the club. Watford will host us in our fourth round FA Cup tie and one player almost certain to feature is the versatile Jake Livermore.

Jake has appeared regularly in the cup competitions, even filling in at right back against Cheltenham and has therefore underlined his potential to the club in more than one area of the pitch.

The frustrating Tottenham career of Giovani do Santos could finally be coming to an end in this transfer window with reports of interest from Spain and from Bolton Wanderers boss Owen Coyle. Gio hinted at his potential again this month, albeit against Cheltenham, and after the game manager Harry Redknapp hailed his talent while giving an insight into why the player has barely featured at the Lane.

Jake earns Harry’s praise but can he step up?

As widely predicted, Jake Livermore settled in to Scott Parker's slot in the centre of midfield last night and coped admirably with the physical presence of Everton's Tim Cahill and Marouane Fellaini. After filling in at right back against Cheltenham at the weekend, Jake moved into a more comfortable position and his all round performance drew praise from manager Harry Redknapp.
