-17 last night and -9 at lunch time. I am not sure i remember the last time it was that cold here in Kalmar by the sea! Still however a lot of last minute xmas shoppers in town and everyone had their own car guessing by the amount of traffic. Lansdowne.se wolly hats have been very popular the last few days!
Mark Hughes sacked by Man City. It was just a matter of time. Mancini takes over today and will have very little time to improve things. He will however be a very wealthy man regardless of how it goes. It takes years to build a successful team not months. Benitez next?
Mike McCarthy´s Wolves beat Burnley 2-0. All of a sudden the 10 changes he made against Man Utd has become a shrewd piece of management. However he will need more than just shrewd management if Wolves are to avoid the drop.
Man Utd were crap, Liverpool even worse, Chelsea lucky to get a point and even Arsenal needed a penalty miss from their opponents Hull to take 3 points. The xmas period usually sorts out the boys from the men. I have a feeling this year might be a bit different. Aston Villa and Tottenham can definately get amongst them.
Newcastle are flying in the Championship. 10 points clear and unbeaten in 9 games. No new stars or big named managers. Just Chris Hughton my own mate from East London who was assistant at Spurs for years and even at Newcastle. They put him in charge on a caretaker basis whilst searching for a new manager. He got the players working as a unit, the fans backed him and voila he got the job. Good luck Chris! 42,000 fans is there average home gate this season. Amazing!!
Must watch Paddy´s uppesittarkväll tonight TV 4 Sport 21.30. Should be a classic. Luckily for Paddy its not on at 20.00 the same time as Anna Ankas jul!
