    The reality is, he'll have time (from the fans). Sarri, despite winning Serie A, was a bit...crap. Particularly at the end of the season.

    I don't think the "start at smaller clubs" has ever worked for club legend players. Lesser known former players, sure. But a brief sojourn in the Championship seems to have done Frank fuck all good. Pep and Zidane are probably the template (yes I know they both had brief - but longer - tenures managing the reserves).

    I always remember Glenn Hoddle (anecdotally) turning up at Swindon and taking training, wondering why his players couldn't ping 70 yard passes to feet

    Ha, heard similar about Hoddle. Even at 40-odd, head and shoulders above everyone else technically.

    I don't think there's a one size fits all with ex-players and management. Legends probably get an earlier shot but I don't think it always works out as planned.

    Cadiz are beating Real 1-0. Could go joint top.

    Why do the Juve players have a red mark under their eye?

    Actually, all the players do.

    If that happens it's bound to be followed by a complete and utter shit Christmas for United with Ole ending up being sacked and Steve Bruce coming in to manage as caretaker.

    Bruce would be better in every measure other than photogenically (elf beats troll, just)

    I've made 40 quid off his beautiful sausage meat face this month. As well as various cups and T-Shirts, there's also been 2 throw pillows bought. Which I can only assume are going to be used as a female masturbatory aid.

    Plus they were all real, rather than Pele who would include goals in training, dreams etc

    Apparently Poch is about to take over at PSG.

    As Iíve said before I think itís the perfect job for him. Learn to get over the finish line in a one horse race, get some cash to play with and some sexy players, and a guaranteed crack at the CL. And he played for them and is a club legend. Good luck to him.

    I was going to say that's pretty weird timing for a sacking. Navigated out of a tricky CL group.

    But then again, having had a look they are a staggering 1 point off top spot in the league.

    Definitely a good job for him though. Coming to United would have been lunacy on his part.

    Will do his CV wonders to have trophies on it. Even if almost any manager could win them.

    No. Close a few times to scoring again, but not to be today.

    So long as juve keep slipping up every so often, it'll hopefully keep things interesting.

    Insigne is amazing when he turns it on.

    Cracking mazy run through Fiorentina there.

    Oh dear, a lacklustre Juve have lost the Derby d'Italia

    What a shame.

    Barca highlights worth watching today for the Messi pass leading to their 2nd goal alone. Still frighteningly good when he turns it on.

    Zlatan with another double this weekend is great to see too!

    Lukaku going beast mode in this Milan derby. Caught the keeper out so well with the finish at the near post for his goal, and had a brilliant assist to start the scoring today.

    Zlatan subbed off after a pretty disappointing game though he did well drawing a couple of very good saves from Handanovic.

    Thought Milan should have got a goal or two, but the Inter keeper pulled out all the stops a few times.

    Lovely goal there from Benzema. Not watched much La Liga this season but good to see Barca are still a pack of whiny bitches.
