Sousa Close to the Edge

Although the rumour-mill proved to be wrong over the weekend Paulo Sousa’s position as manager of Leicester City is under threat according to the Daily Mirror… 

The Mirror story claims: “Sousa is on the brink of the sack at the Walkers Stadium, with rumours growing last night that he had been fired by Milan Mandaric. It is understood that Sousa will remain in charge for tomorrow night’s trip to Norwich. But Foxes chairman Mandaric is ready to take action after the club’s dreadful start to the season, with Alan Pardew’s name already in the frame.”

Sousa is just 82 days into his reign, but a solitary win from eight league games sees City rock-bottom of the Championship with a goal difference of -11.
Chairman Milan Mandaric’s notorious trigger-finger will be itching, and the new Thai Owners can’t be terribly impressed, especially as Friday night’s 6-1 humping at Portsmouth was televised in Thailand.
Sousa needs results, and quick, starting with tomorrow’s trip to Norwich.

    It’s probably the fruit of someone’s feverish imagination, but according to Tribal Football, Martin O’Neill is in the frame – http://www.tribalfootball.com/leicester-city-set-make-sensational-play-ex-villa-boss-o%E2%80%99neill-1144161

    Now wouldn’t that be interesting?

    I’m not a great believer in dumping managers after a few defeats (it didn’t save us after Peter Failure or the Allen/Megson/Holloway fiasco) but last Friday was just awful. For everyone’s sake, I hope that we get results at Norwich tonight and against Scunny on Satdy.

    And please, not Pardew, not at any price…
