Makes you wonder how some of these clowns are getting what amounts to an 80%+ approval rating in the protected list vote. Of course, after that moment of wondering, you realize that the reason they're getting so many votes is that the few bits of relative quality shine so much brighter considering the utter void of talent surrounding them. Anybody want to crank that softball over the left field fence and play blame game with the FO?
Speaking of those particular devils, Goff says...
The buzz in soccer circles is also that United plans to initially focus on experienced foreign candidates.
Hmmm. EFCOG (Enigmatic Foreign Coaching Genius) got bounced in the quarterfinals of last year's Next Coach Cup. Looks like he's the favorite this time around. And yes, you can read that as "FBF will be running the Next Coach Cup again in 2010." That said, why is the name Kevin Keegan "floating around"? Isn't the idea to bring some tactical structure to the team? Seems to me that hiring a manager known for giving players their head wouldn't be the brightest approach for a team that makes as many boneheaded blunders as this one. Bah! Sounds like more half-assed name chasing to me.
The good news? Only four games left of this misery (at least for this season). The question becomes, which is in more danger of being surpassed, 20 goals or 20 points? We're currently on 18 for both. 18! After 26 freakin' games.
What an abomination.
