    With Chelsea thumped again you would have to think the pressure is intensifying on Sarri.
    Should he lose his job will the Chelsea Board be considering Frank as his replacement? Surely too soon for Frank but then again look how well Solksjaer is doing at Utd, admitting he is less of a rookie.
    I hope Uncle Mel has negotiated a decent release fee for Frank....

    Poynton ram reacted to David in Lampard and the Chelsea job   
    I have spoken with Mel tonight and wanted to clear a couple of things up and issue a gentle reminder of an interview when was aired on TalkSport on Wednesday.
    There has been a lot of talk about Lampard’s announcement being delayed until the 1st July for FFP, this is not true. The situation is the same as it was on Wednesday when Mel spoke on TalkSport, the club are waiting to hear the outcome of the negotiations between Frank and Chelsea. 
    If Frank does leave, please go back and listen to Mel’s interview on TalkSport where he discusses the type of manager the club will be looking at bringing in.
    The club wish to continue the style of play we saw under Frank, be open to using the academy players and a manager that we, the fans, will have a connection with and won’t be booing after the first goal of the season is conceded!
    This clearly rules out a number of managers on the bookies shortlists so don’t get yourself worked up when a manager goes evens.
    We’re all frustrated, the club are aware, but stay calm, try and be patient. Monday morning and the start of pre season is more about fitness, seeing which players have indulged over the summer a little too much and need to run an extra lap around Moor Farm, no real coaching takes place. Whilst not ideal, it shouldn’t impact our preparations for the season too much.

    What about Sol Campbell? Did a great job at Macclesfield, well connected in the game, clearly doesn't need the money and must be wanting a more high profile job now.

    Anybody spotted any of the players away on holiday?
    I know a few have international commitments but the vast majority must be away now.
    Whilst I am guessing the younger lads will be in Ibiza or somewhere similar I am assuming Carson is either away fishing in Scotland or caravanning in North Wales.
    Marriott no doubt golfing in Portugal?
    Not sure about Waghorn, camping in Robin Hoods Bay maybe?

    Poynton ram reacted to Hanny in Lampard and the Chelsea job   
    Being someone who has managed/mentored quite a few folk through the trials/values/risks of professional development/startups/etc (not that this comes close to qualifying me to understand the state of play in top tier football management...but I digress), I would find it hard to believe Lampard could feel an appointment to Chelsea would be genuine. 
    Let's say Lampard gets offered the job. 
    1. He will only be getting it because the state Chelsea are currently finding themselves (Transfer Embargo for example). Meaning, all top qualified options will have had a look, and said no thank you. Making Lampard top choice only by a major red flag for the club.
    2. He would be walking into a club that is still in need of someone who can navigate the Champions League/Premier league/FA Cup pressures. Won't know if he is able until he tries I suppose...just so much risk here. 
    3. No real track record of Chelsea sticking with a Manager (even when successes have been achieved). The job opens so frequently, I don't see a rush to take it now.
    4. What's the value for him? He is currently a legend at Stamford Bridge, anything short of becoming a legend as a manager...and he will have failed to live up to expectation (that's a ton of pressure for any manager, let alone one at the beginning of his career). As a developing manager, anything short of crushing it at Chelsea, could very well harm his career...again, that's a risky position. 
     
    In sum: Would Lampard be OK with getting the Chelsea job, knowing all the factors against him? Perhaps. The romance is there, although I think it would grow the longer he stays away from Chelsea. I see a position (Chelsea Manager) that does not hold too much current value, and is loaded with risk. Especially knowing the job will likely come available multiple times in the next few years. I would advise a hard pass this time around, if he were my client.

    Now all of your spies, have been blown away,
    We're all off to Wembley, for one special day.
    Take all of your scarves, and throw them away.
    Keep crying, United.
     
    You beat us at home, you beat us away,
    But just when it mattered, Frank had the last say.
    It's us that are marching, along Wembley Way.

    Nice article in today's Daily Mail about the emotional support MW has given to Nino Severino, husband of the late tennis player Elena Baltacha.

    Poynton ram reacted to ossieram in Bryson   
    Anybody that abuses Bryson really needs to give their head a shake.
    The bloke has given his all for our club but has been played out of position for the majority of the season.
    He is not a defensive midfielder and shows time and time again that when he does get up front, he is dangerous and could still do a job for us.
    Let the manager and coaching staff decide if he isn't good enough anymore or if somebody else could do a better job and get behind the players.
    It would be a crying shame if Bryson were to leave at the end of the season feeling that he is glad to get away from the place after all he has done.
    We all know that players have a shelf life, but that doesn't mean we have to be abusive or spiteful when their time comes.
