The Managerial Merry-Go-Round

The Managerial Merry-Go-Round

    Description

    Hi, I started this blog on the 3/6/2011 mainly because I thought that the 140 tweet limit was not enough and decided to start my own blog to blog about opinions and debates football related. This blog is not specific to any specific competition or team however I will be mainly blogging about issues relating to the premier league however I may discuss other topics if they interest me.

    I chose the name “The Managerial Merry-Go-Round%quot; as when I started the blog I couldn‘t think of a name for it and while I was thinking I was watching sky sports news and they were discussing the vacant Chelsea, Fulham, Aston Villa and Cardiff City job and it made me think about how managers don’t stay at their clubs for as long as they used to do and thought I could use that for my blog name and then The Managerial Merry-Go-Round was created.

    I‘ve enjoyed football for a long time and over the years I have been privileged to watch some great matches and some great players and due to my vast experience I thought I would blog about Football.

  • The Opening Weekend Fixtures

    Posted on 17 June, 2011

    Blackburn Rovers Vs Wolverhampton Wanderers
    This game could potentially be interesting with the reverse fixture of the last game of the season which finished 3-2. Since both of these teams were involved in a last day relegation battle both teams will want to start off strong and avoid a similar scenario. My Verdict 1-1
    Fulham Vs Aston Villa
    This interestingly first game for both Martin Jol and Alex Mcleish. Aston Villa must get off to a good start or the fans may turn even more on the newly appointed manager and so will Fulham. My verdict 1-2
    Liverpool Vs Sunderland
    As a Newcastle fan i would love nothing more than Sunderland starting off the season terribly and i think they will Liverpool away is always a difficult game and Henderson could make his Liverpool debut on this occasion. My verdict 3-1
    Manchester City Vs Swansea
    It will be a tough start for a long season for Swansea which i think will end in relegation and i think man city will be wanting to start the season off strongly if they want to win the title. My verdict 3-0
    Newcastle United Vs Arsenal
    Unfortunately this game wont be as exciting as last season 4-4 but hopefully it will be. Arsenal will want to start the season off strongly due to title aspirations but could be hard if Fabregas and Nasri leave before this game and Newcastle will want to start off well in front of their own fans and will want to provethat the Nolan sale was a good deal. My verdict 1-2
    Queens Park Rangers Vs Bolton
    Q.P.R will start off the season at home to Bolton which they could class as winnable and if they are to survive they will have to have good home form and start off well. Bolton will also be wanting to start off well if they want to qualify for Europe or a top ten finish. My verdict 2-1
    Stoke City Vs Chelsea
    Chelsea have a difficult first game as Stoke is a hard place to go everyone always seems to mention and whoever there new manager is will want to start off well to mount a serious title challenge. My verdict 1-1
    Tottenham Hotspurs Vs Everton
    Everton always seem to start off the season slowly and Tottenham may be a difficult challenge for them. My verdict 0-1
    West Brom Vs Manchester United
    The reigning champions start off the season at the Hawthorns who had a very strong finish last season and may prove to be a hard team to beat under Roy Hodgson. However i think man utd will be too strong for them and win the game comfortably. My verdict 0-2
    Wigan Athletic Vs Norwich City
    Both of these teams will be wanting to avoid relegation and will want to start the season off strongly. My verdict 0-1
