The Managerial Circus Of The Premier League Clubs



Premier League - Managerial Circus

Premier League – Managerial Circus

With the season done and dusted, all Premier League teams have turned their attention to next season. Some of the clubs have identified the players they would like in their team while others have already made new signings. However, the manager is quite often the one to take the blame and hence some clubs have swiftly moved to name new managers.

There has been no change at the top with Carlo Ancelotti the only casualty. He was sacked after a trophy less season even though he won the double, last time around. Newly promoted sides will almost certainly continue with the men that secured them a place among England’s elite. It will be very interesting to see if the new Indian owners of Blackburn Rovers, continue with Steve Kean, after he assured them top flight football this season. Sam Allardyce, the former Bolton, Newcastle and Blackburn manager will now take over at relegated West Ham. His only target this season is to achieve promotion and the Olympic Stadium which would be handed over to the Hammers in 2013 will want to host Premier League fixtures by then. How he would fare is anyone’s guess, but a mid table manager in the Premier League, Big Sam should find it a touch easier to manage in the Championship. Mark Hughes left his job at Fulham, although he guided them to Europa League spot via the Fair Play table. It is speculated that he might be given the vacant seat at Aston Villa. So, in all likelihood, Hughes will add Villa to his resume after Blackburn and Fulham. Another contender for the Villa hot seat is former Newcastle manager Chris Hughton whose side won the Championship a couple of seasons ago.

Martin Jol has now been appointed manager of Fulham. The former Tottenham and Hamburg manager has taken over the Cottagers and his summer break will be shortened by the Europa League qualifiers which starts end of this month. During last season we saw a number of managers sacked, namely Chris Hughton, Sam Allardyce, Roy Hodgson and Avram Grant. Roy was appointed by West Bromwich Albion and he guided them to a top half finish.

The summer has only just started and the managerial circus is all set to continue. It would hardly be surprising if any of the Premier League clubs bring in new managers before the start of next season. It, however, seems that who is deemed not good enough for one club is considered the right man for another.
