    got to admit, nice last piece of fuck you all by Ashley
  2. simpler to get someone in who's available right away rather than having to agree compensation with a club to get someone

    regardless of whether sacking Bruce is the right decision to brief to the media basically: "lol he sacked before Spurs" without having everything ready to go was a stupid idea rather than some non committal line like going to make a full assessment of the club etc etc then sack him when your ready

    officially I don't think they can but most do anyway via agents or whatever, see how quickly clubs generally have a replacement on hand when they sack someone mid season. Different post season as you aren't under pressure to get someone in so can do a more extensive search

  9. the only mention of ashley i've seen was a brief thank you to him for his commitment to the sale process
  10. to distract from tonights celebrations France have come from 2-0 down at half time to make it 2-2 with 20 minutes left vs Belgium
