He's played for them before so maybe some sentimental attachment.

Employment, money and a challenge are some reasons, champions league for 1 match or maybe more?


Really hope Bobby Manc doesn't take/get this job; with his talents and attributes he deserves better than Leicester.

However, if he does go there, he could be looking to get the kudos for keeping them up. Moreover, back in the Premier League his profile would be raised and once he's back it might position him more advantageously for something like the Arsenal position, when that becomes vacant.

At the end of the day I dread him coming back to haunt us.

Mancini, Mourinho, and Ranieri. All sacked the season after winning the title. 3 of the last 5 title winning managers.

That's quite a sobering thought, when all is considered, but perhaps the saddest one of the three is Mancini.

Mourinho had it coming anyway and so there's no point in crying over spilled milk there, whilst Ranieri had massively overachieved the previous season and this success was completely unsustainable, although his sacking could be considered somewhat harsh, all things considered.

Bobby Manc was a different situation altogether with different circumstances and not entirely related to the League position City were in, although the FA Cup defeat by Wigan didn't help matters.


Mind you the same thing nearly happened to Brendan Bodgers, after the 2013/14 season when Loserpool won the League.....oh, sorry; almost won the League.......but he somehow managed to cling on until the opening months of the 2015/16 season, before finally being put out of his misery.

On that basis, Pep will have to watch his step when we win the title, either this season or next. :o :o :o :o

I feel so sorry for a guy that will have just been given millions in a payout for getting sacked for poor performance. Just like the real world....

Claudio is 65 .

He has achieved with a bunch of coconuts something beyond his dreams. I am sure he has a big ego to do something at the top like others, but i bet he doesn't give a toss if the youngsters that have gone on strike lose it all.

a few mill pay off , fcuk em i say .

I stand corrected and admonished JL, with mouth suitably washed out. T shirts obviously can't lie.

"Livelypoo" is a brilliant term for that lot; well done to you :D :D

That's absolutely brilliant. Love it.

Well done to you as well JC, for 'digging' that one out. :)

Who goes first from the current top teams - the Portugese, the Frenchman, the German, the Italian, the Argentinian, the Dutchman?

- it won't be the Spaniard - I hope

So the highest placed British manager is Pulis? Disgraceful

and he's Welsh and so is the next one - currently, you're well into the bottom half before the first English manager appears - the ultra progressive Sean Dyche - after that us inselaffes are represented by the ultra ultra progressive Eddie Howe, two caretakers and BFS :D

i dont believe Arsenal will sack Wenger but I do think he could step down.

going by Kroenke's utterly baffling handling of one of his other franchise's awful coaches (Jeff Fisher), he doesnt like to sack people very often as long as the team isn't AWFUL (consistent top 4 finishes would hardly qualify). although that could've been because Fisher's agent's father was on the board but still, Kroenke himself had no ties but he still showed loyalty/stubbornness.
I'm not really a City fan. I'm just here for attention.

Zola has left Birmingham. Two wins in twenty four games. The best case of a clueless foreign owner having sacked Gary Rowett almost straight away. You reap what you sow as they say and there will be precious little for Brum to harvest this summer
