Vote: Who should be the next Chelsea manager?

Unemployment epidemic strikes another top flight club

Gene HackmanHilariously-named Secretary for Children, Schools and Families Ed Balls has today claimed we are in “the most serious global recession in over 100 years,” and those in the secondary sector can now count themselves lucky if they remain in gainful employment.

Yesterday, the effects of all that crunchy credit finally spilled into the Premier League, as two high profile jobs were dramatically culled. Tony Adams earned barely a day’s worth of headlines for his inevitable dismissal, as Chelsea decided to pull the plug on Luiz Felipe Scolari (pictured promoting his role as Lex Luther in the Superman franchise).

Despite reports that Sven may be soon be improving the sex lives of the south coast’s finest middle-aged women, Spoiler readers yesterday decided that Avram Grant is the right man for the Pompey job. But who will be willing to put up with Roman Abramovich’s Draconian man management skills? Our street team has spotted Roberto Mancini lurking around southwest London, while the bookies currently believe unemployed Dutchman Frank Rijkaard is the man for the job.
