Sack or Save Europe's Under-Fire Managers | B/R Football Ranks Podcast
- Published: 30 October 2019
- There’s a lot of pressure on the managers at some of Europe’s top clubs right now - some justified, and some less so. Sam Tighe (@brsamtighe) and Dean Jones (@deanjonesbr) join host Jack Collins (@jjwc) to take a look at the coaches in the firing line and whether their clubs should stick or twist with Unai Emery (24:10), Mauricio Pochettino (33:28), Ole Gunnar Solskjaer (38:45), Ernesto Valverde (44:30), and Zinedine Zidane (51:06).
Hot Takes this week involve a discussion of whether Arsenal fans or Granit Xhaka find themselves more in the wrong after Sunday’s bust up at the Emirates (03:24); thoughts on Sergino Dest’s decision to pick the USMNT over the Netherlands national team (08:33); and a look at Leicester City after their demolition job on Southampton last week (13:25). Talking of Southampton, Dean hands out this week’s Melon of the Week award… (20:25)
Roulette asks if football was more entertaining ten years ago (57:12); whether we’d keep all or no technology in the game if it was a black and white decision (59:15) and who the best player we’ve ever played with was (01:01:14); before Sam rounds things off by ranking players who remind him of kitchen appliances, in honour of Jurgen Klopp nicknaming Fabinho as ‘Dyson’ (01:05:30).
