An absent manager.

September 12, 2017

Rafa Benitez missed Newcastle’s win over Swansea whilst recovering from surgery. A manager missing a game is pretty rare but it does happen. Having said this I do remember Rafa missing a game as Liverpool manager after an operation for gallstones.

It does beg the question, which Premier League manager has missed the most games that their team were taking part in? I must confess I don’t have the answer. You can give your suggestions via the comments button or @viewfromthetrev

In solidarity with Frank.

September 11, 2017

I have a fair amount of sympathy for Frank de Boer, not only has he been sacked by Crystal Palace after 4 games, he’s likely to be replaced by Roy Hodgson. No one wants that on their CV.

I don’t know if Frank is married but if he is I hope his wife didn’t give up her job to join him in London or he might have had an awkward conversation earlier today.

In solidarity with Frank, when have you moved country for a job only for it to rapidly unravel? You can contact me via the comments button or @viewfromthetrev

Remainer

This transfer window was shaped by players that didn’t move as much as it was by those that did. I’m thinking of Coutinho, Van Djik, Costa, Sanchez. These players probably thought their actions (or inactions) would have got them a move away from their clubs.

With this in mind, when have you told people you were leaving your job only for you to remain?
