    As a comparison for American football, when Bill Belichick got the job with the Pats, he didn't have many expectations. He was just Parcells' buddy but he had failed as a HC before. Same with Pete Carroll in Seattle. Huge success at USC in college football but he was a bust in the NFL the first time and many people expected him to flop again.

    Thought you guys might have some favorite stories…
    John Barnes taking over at Celtic still makes me think the decision was made by a load of hun bastards

    Allardyce gone. Wonder who will take over at Palace, maybe Marcus Silva?

    Come back Sam, please come back. None of this would've ever happened if Roy Hodgson hadn't been so fucking shit and you'd left for the England job.

    If not I'm definitely up for going to a few games. Beautiful stadium, big club, great players, wonderful football to watch, win most of their matches, score lots of goals and have an incredibly loyal manager. It'll be a nice change from following Sunderland week in week out.

    If Chelsea win the FA Cup, who do they face in the Community Shield? Spurs or Arsenal?

    You have argued Runescape's exact point about watching more games in the past.
