In any job ever, if you completely smash all of your targets in your first year and do an amazing job but then the next year when you have been given new targets you are performing worse then the minimum expectations of the first year your not gona keep your job.
I dont really agree with all these people saying because of last year he should have more time etc. More time wont change anything if - as the papers say - he has lost the dressing room, they will only slide further down. Thanks for showing us that this game isnt all about the money you have to pay but the effort and belief you can put in. Its a shame that it turns out players can loose belief in you pretty quickly even after achieving the impossible
Yup agree that money is not everything but, certainly in Leicester's case, team-working is everything. Last season that team worked so well as a unit that they seemed to always have 12 players on the pitch, and other teams had real problems beating them. This season, with essentially the same squad they are better understood (so easier to play against) but also not playing as well as a unit. Is Ranieri to blame or is it the squad or a bit of both? Not sure how a manager can be totally to blame, although I now expect the usual points fillip from a sacking...
