    One of the more interesting relationships in football is the dynamic between a manager and the fans of a club. Some managers become almost universally popular with the fanbase, which is usually due to winning on a consistent basis. Some are made to feel unwelcome from the beginning, such as Roy Hodgson at Liverpool, Steve Kean at Blackburn and Rafa Benitez at Chelsea; which makes the job of winning the fans around extremely difficult. Most managers exist somewhere in between these two states, generally enjoying that the affections of the fans, but at the same time knowing those affections are a bit like the Sword of Damocles, hanging by a single thread that could snap at any second.

    Chelsea spent copiously during the summer transfer window with the likes of Hazard, Oscar and Moses adding to the Chelsea ranks. With such eye-catching signings coupled with the continued saga surrounding Torres, and the revelation that Mata has been since his arrival, one player signed last year in January has somewhat slipped beneath the radar.

  6. Why Arsene Wenger is one of the best managers in the world

    Previously, I wrote an article ‘The trouble with Arsenal’, which analyses whether or not Arsenal have become a selling club; the conclusion being an emphatic yes. Since their invincible season, the club have made a staggering £40 million net profit from transfers and have developed a habit of signing young talent, nurturing these players and then selling them on to slightly bigger clubs.

    I’d like to expand on this further, because a week ago on Saturday, Arsenal lost 2-0 at home to Swansea which caused for some fans to call for Arsene Wenger’s departure. In my personal opinion, I think it’s ludicrous to want to sack Wenger and Arsenal fans would be making a big mistake if they began to push any ‘Wenger out’ campaigns forward.
