Watford gonna Watford. They’ve not had a manager last more than 1 full season since Gianfranco Zola was sacked after 75 matches in December 2013. That includes Billy McKinlay, who lasted 8 days in 2014.15th in the tables and he got the sack? From Watford? What the ...?
That's an interesting hire. Forgot that he'd been at Fulham, though, so it's not like he's "slumming it" by taking over at Watford. Wonder what difference he'll bring?Watford brought in a fresh new face to be the new manager.
Kidding, They hired Claudio Ranieri. It will be his 22nd managerial position, 4th in the Prem after Chelsea, Leicester and Fulham. He’s managed in 4 of the Big 5 European leagues, missing only Germany.
I think both he and Khan would like to forget that he was at Fulham. He had 3 wins in his 17 matches in charge.That's an interesting hire. Forgot that he'd been at Fulham, though, so it's not like he's "slumming it" by taking over at Watford. Wonder what difference he'll bring?
Saudi Arabia has ended the 4-1/2 year ban on beIN Sport broadcasts into the country. That will restore Premier League, UEFA and other FIFA matches to be legally broadcast. They were broadcast via a streaming device that pirated beIN Sports’ signal.
This could have implications for Mike Ashley to finally sell Newcastle. The Saudi Arabia Public Investment Fund had submitted a bid but were forced to go through the owners’ and directors’ test, an issue that is still in arbitration . They ultimately dropped the bid when it became clear they wouldn’t be approved, with the Saudi government actively pirating the signal of a broadcast partner. They could revive the bid now that the pirating issue is solved, but still have to resolve the the owners’ and directors’ test.
Geez, and this is just five days removed from my post about Bournemouth MF David Brooks being diagnosed with Stage 2 Hodgkins. Awful to read about this. Hoping for successful treatment and a quick recovery for Barden and Brooks.Norwich keeper Dan Barden has been diagnosed with testicular cancer. He’s only 20 years o.d and is on lo and to Scottish side Livingston. He made his first team debut last year, playing 4 matches and earning him a new contract. He’s returning to Norwich for treatment.
The Carolina Hurricanes have a player who was diagnosed with testicular cancer in summer 2019, right around his 20th birthday. He said he really didn’t feel like himself until this past summer, 2 years after the diagnosis and surgery.
