managerial merry-go-round

Latest news reports say that Marco van Basten the Neths national team manager, who was a guest in the Chelsea Directors’ area of seats on Sunday, is being lined up to be the next manager of Chelski FC. That would not only result in Avram Grant enduring one of the shortest reigns in Premiership managerial history (why didn’t they just give Steve Clark the caretaker manager’s role?) but will also be the catalyst for a series of further moves I reckon. Jol will depart from Spurs, no doubt with that £4m leaving settlement, that definitely hasn’t been agreed nor even discussed, in his back pocket and he will in short order be announced as the next manager of the Dutch team. The vacancy at Spurs will be filled by Jurgen Klinsmann who has recently let it be known that the time may be right for a return to the Premiership in a managerial capacity. And so the football carousel turns.

I’m considering letting it be known that I’m prepared to listen to offers from generous clients eager to put me on a retainer to advise them on their marketing/sponsorship/hospitality programmes. What’s that you say, £6k per month with a 3 year deal? Oh let’s not be so crass as to talk £sd. But something around that mark may be interesting enough to get me to come along for a chat. Dya’ think it’ll work like in football?
