Soccer Quantified at related • 0 views
Amidst all the hoopla and hilarity of the season's first managerial sacking in the Premiership - Steve Bruce by Sunderland FC - it's easy to lose sight of the fact that it typically doesn't help to sack the manager. To be sure: there often seems to be a bounce-back in results for teams that appoint a new manager; but statistically speaking, the bounce-back is likely to occur in any case, with or without sacking the gaffer.

I view billionaires from kind of the same curious perspective I view species of mysterious origin and function, like tapir or rare slime molds. I have lots of questions: How did they get there? And what do they do? If I see one, will I know it? Generally, these questions don't have easy answers.

When I heard that Steve Bruce was being lined up as the replacement for Ricky Sbragia, a few alarm bells rang in my head. Bruce, being a Newcastle United fan surely couldn't be Ellis Short and Niall Quinn's choice as the new Sunderland manager could he? Would Bruce seriously consider near enough ruling himself out of becoming Newcastle manager in the near future by taking the job?

The only thing that surprised me about Ricky Sbragia's resignation was the timing of it, coming just 20 or 30 minutes after the final whistle.

While I find David Conn's alarmist piece in today's Guardian excessively xenophobic and reactionary, the continued buying of English football clubs by American owners does pose larger questions long term.
