Episode Twenty-One – Is there any benefit to having a long-term manager?

In a week where Leicester City remembered they were Leicester City, the Team are back to narrate the fairytale ending that is the world of football.

This season’s Premier League is being touted as the war of the managers. Over the summer, there has been such an influx of managerial talent that even Alan Curbishley couldn’t find employment. As a result, 8 of the managers in the Premier League have been at their clubs for less than 100 days. Gone, then, are the days of the long term manager and our question reflects this. We ask the question “Is there any benefit to having a long-term manager?”

Before that though, in line with the International Olympic Committee’s rulings on drug testing, we discuss a number of Talking Points from the previous week in football.

The thinking person’s football pundit is at the top of twitter poll this week. He’ll be asking whether or not this is the season in the Bundesliga where the one-horse race becomes a two-horse race?

After a few weeks of terrible content, Calum is back. He’s interested in Pep Guardiola. Perhaps too interested. He wants to know if the Team think that the quality of football punditry will improve now that there is a manager who uses… you know… tactics.

We don’t really know what Robin wants to talk about. Nothing new there. Probably Arsenal.

All this and much more beside in this week’s episode of A Team of John O’Sheas.


If you have a question that you would like the team to answer or if you have any feedback about the podcasts, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
