Trouble at Ashton Gate
Today’s 3-0 defeat to Norwich confirms Bristol as the division’s whipping boys.
They spent over the summer but they didn’t spend wisely – their squad lacks quality. Up front, they are badly missing the injured Nicky Maynard. Most importantly, the decision to appoint novice manager Keith Millen has backfired. After the shock of Steve Coppell’s sudden departure, they needed an experienced hand at the tiller. Millen won’t last long.
No division for old men
I was at Selhurst Park today to witness the tragic sight of a former Champions League winner being humiliated in the South London rain. Davids was desperately off the pace and was responsible for gifting the opening goal to Rangers with a terrible backpass. This gamble has failed.
Sven arrives at Leicester
Eriksson likes to spend on players; at Leicester, he will have limited resources. In addition, its very easy to see him walking out if the going gets tough. Whichever way I look at it, I see this appointment ending in tears.
