News that won’t surprise many people (any people?): West Ham have sacked manager Gianfranco Zola (having put him in an almost untenable position by refusing to back him at all – or so it seemed).
A lifeless statement on the Irons’ website read: “The Board of Directors would like to thank him for his contribution and wish him well for the future. The Club will now be focusing its efforts on seeking a replacement.”
A creepy man
I wonder at whom the cold, dead hands of David Sullivan and “that creepy sex man with the beard” (© Pies) will point now? Whoever it is, I feel sorry for him already.
Slaven Bilic, anyone?
