    Moyes will keep West Ham out of trouble again and will then leave as they want a top manager and a change of direction....you know it's coming.

    Barcelona have fired Ernesto Valverde. Clearly needed, because they are languishing down in 1st place in La Liga and already out of the Champions League... emotionally.

    Barcelona is an increasingly horribly run club.

    Valverde has been treated poorly by Barca IMO. They have had some poor results under him and they're not the force they have been in the past under Rijkaard, Guardiola, Villanova and Enrique, but the squads that those managers worked with were so formidable and loaded with talent, it was a freak generation of players.
    I don't know much about Quique Setien but I'm very surprised that he's got the job when Pochettino was available. I thought he was a shoe in for the job.

    Disgraceful from Barca really. Poch is an Espanyol guy so would realistically never manage Barca so always took that rumour with a pinch of salt.

    Just wait until Messi retires. It's going to be a shit show.

    Re: Managerial Comings & Goings

    Its funny that Barcelona look so poorly run in footballing terms, but they are tops on the football rich list that was just released by Deloitte. Above United and Madrid.

    But yeah, everything about this club is just keeping Messi happy. On the pitch, they rely on him MASSIVELY.

    Valverde probably deserved to get fired for some things that happened, but those were last season. Pulling the shit with offering the job to Xavi and then lying about it.... Just pure bullshit from a club that claims to be above such things.

    Henry, Koeman, Xavi and the guy they've just appointed. That's 4 managers being talked to about the role, crazy.

    I will say this for, Barcelona - Setien is actually a really interesting appointment. Plus, I love his name. I use Setien (its pronounced like St. Etienne) and I often use it as a my manager avatar in Football Manager. Weird fact!

    Setien is pretty relentlessly attacking. Not the most defensively stable, but its not like Betis had world class defenders. He did really good things at Betis, but he also fell out with the board. I think he likes tactical structure, which will be intriguing to see what he wants to do with Messi.
