    if you think yack's post was overcomplicated, then I struggle to see how you became a proghead.

    I don't think really get this shit with the players.

    If Vardy wasn't doing his job, we'd be cheering for any of the players rounding on him and telling him so.

    Do we really believe that the players didn't tell Claudio they didn't agree with his substitutions?

    Leo did.

    Leo did publicly. What's to say they didn't each have the conversation with him?

    They probably had conversations with Claudio about pizza sauce, anal sex and aliens too. Who knows? Aliens, that's who.

    Vardy can sack who he wants.

    I do not think Claudio is much bothered at the moment. Match thread?

    George Graham with his view on the sacking.


    For me, there was no surprise when Claudio left the club,” he said (via the Mirror). “It was a business decision, pure and simple. It is all very well saying it was unfair. But Ranieri was the manager when they won the league last season and yet they went into Monday night’s game against Liverpool in the bottom three.

    “How was that allowed to happen with the same man in charge? If he was a CEO in charge of a company that made £5 billion one year but just about broke even the next, he would be sacked. There isn’t too much difference.

    “Yes, he did a great job but I think he would admit that a lot of excellent groundwork had been done before he arrived — really good players had been recruited at really low prices. What Leicester should have been prepared for is the reaction to winning the league and they clearly weren’t.

    By and large, they are the same players who won it. How come they are so far down the table? It has to be the job of the manager to make sure that doesn’t happen.”

    Can anyone think of any experienced Assistant Manager or coach that have stepped up and become a top Manager. I can't. Micky Adams may have been an example for a little while.

    Tony Barton. At least for a long enough time to win the European Cup for Villa

    Di Matteo did the same whilst a caretaker manager for Chelsea.

    But Barton and Matteo did not last long. Haven't made a real success of it.
