Brian McDermott was sacked this week, which instigated a period of fawning from various media outlets about how badly the Reading manager had been treated. Not as if his side were close to relegation or anything. Instead, lets put this in perspective by looking at the managerial record of Palermo in Serie A, whose President [.
Gian Piero Gasperini: A man well-acquaintedwith the exit door at theStadio La Favorita, and the entrance...
Did you follow that? Here it is one more time for those struggling to keep up: Roughly a fortnight after rehiring coach Gian Piero Gasperini to replace Alberto Malesani (who lasted three games at the helm) despite originally sacking Gasperini to hire Malesani,Palermo chairman Maurizio Zamparini has seen fit to sack Gasperini again after just two more games in charge at Serie A's bottom club.
Ben Lyttleton of Sports Illustrated wrote a great piece this past week on how professional clubs go
about searching for new coaches.
When clubs do search for new coaches, there's often contradictory philosophies . Clubs often don't
have a direct succession plan in place to replace coaches, and also often take the wrong advice or
make decisions based on reputations.
Real Madrid coach Jose Mourinho has advised his former employees Inter Milan against hiring
sacked Chelsea coach Andre Villa-Boas. Mourinho who still maintains a strong relationship with
Inter President Massimo Moratti is reported to have warned the Inter chief against signing his
Claudio Ranieri's gone, gone to the outside, looking in
Inter's body count now includes four coaches in the last 15 months as their struggles continue.
Claudio Ranieri was the latest to be shown the door. Since Jose Mourinho left, Inter have gone
through Rafa Benitez, Leonardo, Gian Piero Gasperini, and now Ranieri.
La Roma, sconfitta a Bergamo, resta ferma in classifica a 38 punti e viene scavalcata dal Napoli

Inter's inconsistency could end up costing them big time unless they get ship back on course
immediately. A 1-0 home loss to Novara on Sunday sees the Nerrazzuri remain 5th on the Serie A
table 10 points behind leaders Milan.
Inter's latest loss has led to a number of rumours linking Fabio Capello with Ranieri's job and
despite the fans voicing their concerns over Capello taking the reigns at Inter.
This season's Serie A campaign has saw a number of different teams fighting for dominance, as
perennial challengers Inter and Milan have started slowly. Juventus sit on top of the pile after
seven games, but their newfound confidence will be tested with tricky away fixtures in Milan and
A memorable round for the Italian clubs who took seven points from a possible nine to place
themselves in good positions for progression into the knock-out stages. Inter Milan have had a
torrid start to their domestic season. Following a shock loss to Turkish minnows Trabzonspor in
Champions League and the dismissal of Provincial manager Gian Piero Gasperini, the European
Champions of 2010 earned.
Recently sacked Inter Milan manager Gian Piero Gasperini has provided some insight into why former
Liverpool manager Rafa Benitez struggled at Milan.Gasperini, who was sacked after just 5 games in
charge at Inter, was recently asked if the problems he experienced at the club were similar to
those experienced by Benitez.
Group A Bayern Munich vs Manchester City from the Allianz Arena, Munich
No question, this is the match of the day with the Bavarian giants, who have had a fantastic start
to this season both domestically and on the continent, against the blue half of Manchester.
What a rollercoaster week it has been for the Nerazzurri faithful...yet again. As expected, last
Wednesday brought about the official end to Gian Piero Gasperini's reign as Inter head coach, with
the damning 3-1 loss to Novara solidifying his fate. After zero wins in the first five competitive
matches, a stop plug was needed to halt any more of Inter's season running down the drain.
There has been some cracking action in Serie A in midweek and there was a couple of upsets
including Novara beating Inter Milan and then end of Gian Piero Gasperini reign at Inter Milan.
Cesena 1-2 Lazio Lazio came back from a goal down with two goals in the 2nd half to end a dramatic
few days for everyone aligned with Lazio.
Inter Milan have signed another former Chelsea manager in Claudio Ranieri who
will be unveiled as their new coach tomorrow following the sacking of Gian Piero Gasperini
yesterday after just 5 games in charge at the club. Ranieri will become Inter's fifth manager in 15
months following Jose Mourinho, Rafa Benitez, Leonardo and Gasperini in the hot-seat.

Claudio Ranieri Ã¨ il nuovo allenatore dell'Inter. L'allenatore romano Ã¨ approdato a Milano, per
una nuova avventura professionale ed umana. Ranieri fa venire in mente pensieri: il popolo
interista si augura che siano ora finalmente buoni e sereni, dopo gli incubi degli ottanta giorni
gasperiniani. Claudio sembra un imperatore romano che, arriva a Milano per [.
Claudio Ranieri has been given the reigns at Inter Milan following the dismissal of much-maligned
coach Gian Piero Gasperini, but is the very likeable Italian the man to steer Inter away from their
crisis and create a new chapter for the club? Saddled with the most unfortunate moniker of â€˜the
Tinkerman', Claudio Ranieri represents somewhat [.
Inter Milan today confirmed the appointment of Claudio Ranieri as coach on a deal until June
2013 and will take charge of the side for this Saturday's match at Bologna. Former Valencia,
Chelsea and Roma boss Ranieri succeeds Gian Piero Gasperini, who was sacked yesterday after a
short, unsuccessful spell in charge.
You don't need an Italian football expert to tell you Gian Piero Gasperini was off to a bad
start at Inter. Even though he has lead the Nerazzurri in fewer than a half-dozen competitive
matches, his team looked nothing short of horrendous in that time. It can be argued he did, in
fact, deserve the pink slip handed to him this morning.

Inter Milan have sacked manager Gian Piero Gasperini after just three months. The Internazionale
manager got his side off to a very poor start to the 2011-12 Serie A season after losing to
Palermo, drawing Roma at home but then losing 3-1 away against Novara.
While the 0-0 result against Roma on Saturday may not have looked so bad on paper, it was a game
that Roma dictated for large portions of the match.
One point.Â Zero wins.Â Three matches. Welcome to the start of Inter's 2011-12 Serie A season.
What should have been an easy win in celebration of Captain Javier Zanetti's record breaking night
in the Nerazzurri shirt, turned into an embarrassing night at the hands of Serie A newcomers,
Novara.Â Instead of commemorating the astounding 757 times â€˜Pupi' has worn the black and blue to
place him as.
Novara, at the very bottom of the Serie won yet again in a clean sweep of Inter with Andre
Caracciolo scoring a flamboyant winner. Massimo Moratti dismissed Gian Piero Gasperini after
Inter's 1-3 flame out against Novara in their first encounter.

Much to the relief of Inter fans everyone, the club has fired Gian Piero Gasperini, who failed
to win a game while in charge of Inter. Gasperini's downfall was due to his insistence that Inter
play with three defenders and five midfield players, a formation that is not suited to the Inter
Inter Milan has fired head coach Gian Piero Gasperini after just 5 games in charge. 1 loss in the
Italian Super Cup. 1 loss in the UEFA Champions League. 1 tie and 2 losses in Serie A. And no signs
that the team was going anywhere but down in each of those games. Its not Gasperini's fault at all.
Proprio ora che Ranieri lo aveva recuperato dal forzato esilio della panchina impostogli da mister
Gasperini, ora che era pronto a dire all'Italia ed al mondo che, a comprarci con anticipo il
biglietto per portarci a giugno in Polonia ed Ucraina per l'europeo con quel gol contro la
Slovenia, era stato lui, il Pazzo si [.
Inter anni di problemi ed ennesima vittima: Gasperini Di Stefano Lazzarato A poche ore dall'esordio
di Ranieri, troppa gente apre la bocca "per dare aria ai denti", ritenendo Gasperini la principale
fonte dei tanti mali della squadra e Ranieri il medico miracoloso. Altri se la prendono con le

On the day the Arsenal board came out swinging at Arsene Wenger's critics virtually promising a
lifetime guarantee of employment, Inter's president Massimo Moratti was showing the door to Gian
Paolo Gasperini after just five matches.
Today, Inter named his successor and it is Claudio Rainieri who in a twist was Jose Mourinho's
predecessor at Chelsea before getting fired.
It took just five matches but Massimo Moratti decided he had had seen enough. Its Rolodex time
once again at the San Siro as Gian Piero Gasperini was given his marching orders after Inter lost
1-3 against newly promoted Novara.

"In the end, the results are the ones that determine everything.
