    Palotta better hire some security. Well more security. Roma ultras are nuts period, and with all that’s going on, ownership might have to sell. They’ve been suspicious of him to begin with, and with Totti going? He can’t show up anywhere near Rome now.

    Apparently Sarri wants to play Ronaldo centrally.

    I mean, more time in the box, using his headers and less worries about his speed would be a positive usage

    If he's smart he will, that's where CR can provide the most.

    Still don't see where Dybala fits unless playing a 4-2-3-1

    If he doesn’t intend on playing Dybala as a 9 then he should sell him ASAP.

    That also explains why he got fired before finishing eighth.

    Well, at the end of this season he did say -

    “maybe now people will understand why I said finishing 2nd with this United squad was my greatest achievement”.

    The Mirror (I know) is reporting that Lampard will be announced as Chelsea manager within the next 48 hrs.

    I loved living in China, but moving to Dalian for Benitez seems so random.

    All the Chelsea sources are confirming what we've known for awhile. He had a say in Kovacic being made official too.

    Ljubisa Tumbakovic is the new Serbia manager after recently being sacked with Montenegro for refusing to coach against Kosovo.

    Derby close to appointing Phillip Cocu to replace Lampard.

    So Mourinho reportedly rejected an offer from China worth ~30 m euro a year plus bonuses to manage Guangzhou Evergrande in China.

    Yeah. I just don't see how his ego could handle going to China.

    I hope Mourinho takes over a good European team again. I don't like him (I used to) and I don't think he has it in him to create a proper side on the highest level again, but I am still curious to see what he could do at the right club (whichever club that is). He was always arrogant even when he was at the top of the world, but I always felt it was partly just him being playful. He was often angry and he complained a lot even back then, but he was also quite entertaining when his mood was right. And then somewhere along the way he just went full grumpy old man. He has kept his arrogance and he still complains etc., but his wit and his playfulness isn't there. Could it return? I'm thinking maybe at the right club with the right people surrounding him.

    Xabi Alonso hired to be the manager of the Real Sociedad B team. If there was ever a player that I saw fitting into management Alonso would be the one.
