Two old-school giant of Europe crashed out of the Champions League last night: ponderous Milan were thrashed at Old Trafford, whilst Real Madrid, aka Galacticos 2, were shocked by Lyon.

Dead men walking?

This will not stand. I’d bet good money on both team’s managers, Leonardo (Milan) and Manuel Pellegrini (Real), being sacked in the next week or so. But who will get the boot first? Time for a straight-up sack race…

    pellegrini probably. kinda ridiculous if either get the sack before the end of the season IMO. real are top of la liga, sacking the manager would be madness

  2. Common Sense says:

    Leonardo is not at fault he got a deadbeat team to handle . . no pace no physicality no chemistry shite goalkeepers a club disatoriously mismanaged by Carlo Ancelotti and the Presidents .

    Leonardo is not stupid. its his first season. he has a team that is chosen by the Italian PM and they do not invest in players anymore. He was brought in as a porn of the PM. I remember Man utd beten heavy in europe and Fergie didn’t get sacked. Also Milan are in a much better league position this year than under Ancelotti last year. In fact Ancelotti would have been fired from Chelsea with the performnces he had over the past 3 years at Milan. Leanardo is a great coach with great people skills and its a shame that people don’t give coaches time anymore and you are only as good as your last match. Just wait until Rooney has a dry spell and the talk of him being the best in the world will soon pass.
