Psycho wants Manager Transfer Window
Perhaps due to the pressure he's feeling at the moment, Stuart Pearce has somewhat surprisingly and probably with tongue in cheek, suggested that in future changes of managers should happen within a transfer window, just like the players.
He does have a slight point I think, as football, just a life in general these days is all about instant success and gratification. Pearce went on to say:
'Maybe somewhere in the future, if you are going to move managers on, you will have to do it during the transfer window, then at least people would have the chance to get on with their job a little bit.'
At the moment, the game is quite farcical. I have seen a lot of ups and downs but it seems to be accelerating out of all control.
This week it is Alan Pardew, next week it could be Iain Dowie, it was Stuart Pearce the week before, Gareth Southgate the week before that.
'Who will be next? Rafael Benitez? He had designs on the championship at the start of the season, he spent a lot of money - and he is two points in front of us.
At the moment, we have a situation where one result can dictate whether you are doing well, average or badly. That is not healthy for the game or any individual club.'
I do agree to an extent with the general thrust of the remarks, but Psycho is kidding himself if he thinks City's and his position rests on just one result. The reality is 3 wins from the last twenty games tells its own depressing story.
Perhaps someone should tell Psycho that there is already a managers transfer window - it starts every year on the January 1st and ends on 31st December ;-)
