first_imgBrett Ormerod claims even Champions League winner Jose Mourinho would find managing Blackpool an impossible task.The Seasiders sacked Jose Riga on Monday, following a dreadful start to the Championship season, which has left the club sitting bottom of the table after 14 matches.But Riga’s departure is unlikely to change their fortunes, according to Ormerod, with the ex-Seasiders striker claiming the problems lie at the very top.“It’s been nothing short of a shambles,” he told Hawksbee and Jacobs. “It doesn’t matter who they bring in, even if they get Jose Mourinho, if they carry on down the same road, with the same level of investment, it’s going to be a hard job.“The chairman [Kary Oyston] at Blackpool has a level of investment which he thinks is suitable. Over the last couple of years though, with Blackpool getting relegated from the Premier League, the fans then expect more.“The club, instead of kicking on from there and becoming a club which could challenge to get back into the Premier League, the way they’re going they could end up back in League One.“Any manager coming in now could find it impossible to stop that.”last_img read more

The England defender’s heroics at the back caused Tottenham a great deal of pain on Saturday.CB: James Tomkins (Crystal Palace).I always give credit where it is due and on Saturday, Tomkins produced one of his best displays as Palace defeated Leicester City 4-1.MF: Ashley Young (Man United).No Man Unitedplayer had more touches (63) or made more passes (44) than Ashley Young in their 0-0 draw at home to table leaders Liverpool.MF: Sead Kolasinac (Arsenal) Sead Kolasinac gained possession on 10 occasions and made two blocks as he helped Arsenal to a 2-0 victory over Southampton.MF: Luka Milivojevic (Crystal Palace).Milivojevic continues to provide cool leadership on the field for Palace, which perfectly reflects that provided by Roy Hodgson in the dugout. Excellent in the win over Leicester and scoring one of the four goals.MF: Miguel Almiron (Newcastle United).No Newcastle player had more shots on target (3) or created more chances (6) than Miguel Almiron against Huddersfield.FW: Gerard Deulofeu (Watford).Gerard Deulofeu became the first Watford player to score a top-flight hat-trick since Mark Falco in October 1986. He did so on Friday as his side defeated Cardiff City 5-1 in Wales.FW: Troy Deeney (Watford).Denney was at his absolute best again this past week. The Englishman scored twice and made one assist in the 5-1 win over Cardiff.FW: Wilfred Zaha (Crystal Palace).The two goals against Leicester just had to put Zaha in my team of the week.Comments Tags: premier league team of the weektoplast_img read more
