Paul Merson delivers damning Lampard to Chelsea

Published

on

This might not be the best for manager Frank Lampard as Paul Merson delivers a damning judgement, saying that Chelsea need to bring an older and experienced manager to stop struggling.

The West London outfit have been battling with negative results since and are currently 11 points behind league leaders Man United. The Blues have only won two of their last eight Premier League fixtures to keep them in eighth place, having been briefly top of the table earlier on in the season.

For reasons unknown, the Blues team are reluctant to fire Frank Lampard but Paul Merson thinks that is the right thing to do for a club that is as ambitious as the West London outfit

“You can’t tell me Solskjaer doesn’t ring Alex Ferguson” Paul Merson stated.

The former Arsenal man said the likes of Harry Redknapp as a mentor of sorts for Lampard could help turn Chelsea’s season around.

“Frank Lampard needs an experienced coach like Harry Redknapp to come in and help him at Chelsea. Someone he can use as a sounding board who isn’t a threat to his job but has plenty of knowledge and can give him good advice.

“I don’t know how Frank hasn’t already reached out to someone like that and offered them a role at the club. You can’t tell me Ole Gunnar Solskjaer doesn’t ring Sir Alex Ferguson for advice at Manchester United. Come on.

“Lampard has got to get through the next few matches or he’s in big trouble. Luton in the FA Cup and then Wolves and Burnley at home are massive matches.

“I still think Chelsea should give him time but he needs someone alongside him with more experience than Jody Morris in my opinion.

Transfer News: Lindelof, Andriy Lunin, Miguel Gutierrez and Manchester United

Lindelof Out Miguel Gutierrez in for Man United

As reports suggest, Manchester United is eyeing a summer move for Girona defender Miguel Gutierrez. The 22-year-old Spaniard has attracted interest from the Premier League following an impressive season, contributing with one goal and six assists from left-back. 

With United looking to bolster their defensive line, Gutierrez emerges as a potential target, especially with the backing of Sir Jim Ratcliffe’s investment in the club. However, competition from Arsenal and West Ham could complicate matters.

Meanwhile, Turkish publication A Spor reports that Galatasaray targets Victor Lindelof for a summer transfer. The 29-year-old Swedish centre-back only has a year left on his contract with United and is seen as a prime defensive option for the Turkish club.

With United expected to strengthen their defence, Lindelof could be surplus to requirements, potentially fetching a fee of £15-20 million.

Liverpool shows interest in Chelsea’s Levi Colwill.

Liverpool is seriously considering a move for Levi Colwill from Chelsea, with talks ongoing between the two clubs. Colwill, valued at around £40 million, has caught Liverpool’s eye due to his potential and talent. 

Despite Chelsea’s reluctance to part ways with him, the club’s need to balance finances may push them to consider offers for Colwill and other homegrown players.

Chelsea’s disappointing season, marked by a lack of European qualification and missed cup opportunities, has pressured the club to restructure. 

With Colwill’s contract expiring soon and interest from other clubs, including Tottenham, Chelsea may be forced to make tough decisions about their roster.

Liverpool, in need of defensive reinforcements following Joel Matip’s departure, sees Colwill as a viable option. The 21-year-old’s loan spell at Brighton showcased his abilities, leading to interest from multiple clubs. 

While Chelsea has resisted previous offers for Colwill, Liverpool’s persistence and the player’s openness to a move could sway the decision.

Reports suggest that Chelsea is considering offloading Colwill and other homegrown talents like Conor Gallagher and Armando Broja to fund new signings. 

Despite Colwill’s potential and Chelsea’s reluctance to sell, financial considerations may ultimately dictate the club’s decision.

Manchester United set their sight on Andriy Lunin.

Manchester United is in the mix to snatch Real Madrid’s goalkeeper Andriy Lunin, alongside Paris Saint Germain and Bayern Munich.

It seems United isn’t entirely satisfied with their current goalie situation despite signing Andre Onana last summer for a hefty £47 million from Inter Milan.

Onana’s had his fair share of ups and downs, especially with some noticeable blunders in the Champions League. But even though he’s been stepping up in the Premier League lately, the rumour mill keeps churning about United eyeing another shot-stopper.

Lunin’s the latest name in the mix. The 25-year-old’s been warming Real Madrid‘s bench for a while but got his chance due to some goalie shuffles with Thibaut Courtois and Kepa Arrizabalaga. Now, with interest from United, PSG, and Bayern, he’s contemplating a switch.

Advertisement

His agent, Jorge Mendes, is probably juggling offers from these big clubs, making it a crucial moment for Lunin’s career. Even though Real Madrid wants to keep him, and his contract runs until 2025, the allure of playing for clubs like United might sway him.

Conclusion

Today’s football transfer updates showcased the strategic tango between clubs, players, and agents. 

From Manchester United’s potential move for Andriy Lunin to the buzz around the signing of Miguel Gutierrez. 

Chelsea’s discussions over Colwill and Victor Lindelof’s potential departure from United add to the drama.

Bournemouth thought they deserved a penalty later on, but VAR said otherwise. Solanke’s excellent performance highlighted Bournemouth’s push for a good finish this season.

However, United’s defense still looked shaky, worrying their manager, Ten Hag. Fernandes’ two goals saved United from a loss, but they need to improve to qualify for Europe next season.

Premier League: Managers who Could Lose their Job

Published

on

ELP Manager who could lose their jobs

Mauricio Pochettino and Erik ten Hag shared more than the touchline during a match. With their recent loss against Liverpool and Manchester City respectively,  their job is now on the line more than ever.

These are the top four managers who could lose their jobs by or before the end of the season.

  • Vincent Kompany (Burnley)

Vincent Kompany‘s role as Burnley’s manager is in jeopardy as the team faces multiple challenges. They’re at the bottom of the Premier League table with just four points from 13 games, which doesn’t reflect well on Kompany’s leadership. 

Despite his reputation as a defensive genius, the team’s defense is struggling, conceding 27 goals and ranking second worst in the league. 

On top of that, Burnley’s attack could be better, with only eight goals scored so far this season. These issues raise significant doubts about Kompany’s ability to lead the team effectively. 

Advertisement

It’s a challenging situation, and many fans are questioning whether a change in management might be needed to turn things around and avoid the looming threat of relegation.

Premier League: Managers

POCHETTINO

  • Mauricio Pochettino (Chelsea)

Pochettino is feeling the heat at Chelsea, especially after disappointing results. While there have been some moments of hope, like the comeback against Crystal Palace, the recent Carabao Cup final loss has cast doubt on Pochettino’s ability to lead the team to success. 

Despite glimpses of potential via occasional victories, the pressure is on, especially given Chelsea’s history of changing managers quickly. 

It’s a tough spot for Pochettino, especially considering the team’s current league position – 12th in the Premier League after a tough defeat at Everton.

This contrast is stark, especially considering the hefty investment of over £1bn made by Todd Boehly and Behdad Eghbali. Pochettino’s acknowledgement of the team’s need to improve adds to the pressure cooker atmosphere, as fans and management expect better returns on their significant investment.

Advertisement
  • Erik ten Hag (Manchester United)

The club’s significant investment has yielded no significant impact, and football is not just a game but a business for the sea of investors and owners involved. Since his arrival, Erik Ten Hag has spent approximately 500 million USD.

Erik ten Hag’s tenure at Manchester United appears precarious as the team’s poor performance raises concerns. With 11 league losses and dismal Champions League displays, questions about his ability to deliver results loom large. 

Additionally, their early Carabao Cup exit fuels the existing bomb. The last straw that broke the camel’s back came last weekend during the Manchester derby when Manchester City showed down his side. 

Premier League: Managers

ERIC TEN HAG

  • Eddie Howe (Newcastle)

Eddie Howe’s position at Newcastle is hanging by a thread as the team’s performance nosedives, with a string of defeats and a leaky defense conceding a staggering 31 goals in just 13 games. 

Despite a promising start, doubts loom over Howe’s ability to steer Newcastle towards their Champions League dreams, especially as they currently languish in 9th place, trailing behind Chelsea. 

While a recent FA Cup victory provided a brief respite, heavy defeats against top-tier teams like Spurs, Liverpool, and Arsenal haunt Howe’s tenure, raising concerns about his future at the club.

Advertisement

Conclusion

In football, success is measured in results, and the current struggles of premier league managers like Erik Ten Hag, Mauricio Pochettino, and Eddie Howe signal a need for change. 

Football is a business driven by cash and passion, and there’s no passion in losing. While some of these managers have seen a better past, their teams’ current situation emphasises the need for fresh leadership to reignite competitiveness and ambition. 

Whether through tactical adjustments or new managerial appointments, clubs must prioritise their long-term success.
