first phil brown now tony mowbray who else will go before the end of the season??

Tony Mowbray parts company with Celtic

• Manager leaves after 4-0 thumping against St Mirren
• Celtic 10 points behind Rangers in SPL title race

Tony Mowbray's tenure as the Celtic manager has ended, just nine months after his appointment at Parkhead.

Last night's shock 4-0 defeat to St Mirren proved too much for the Celtic board, who have watched their team fall 10 points behind Rangers in the Scottish Premier League; the Ibrox outfit also have two games in hand over their city rivals. Celtic have lost 13 competitive games this season and have hope of winning only one trophy, the Scottish Cup, despite such transfer additions as the £68,000-a-week Robbie Keane.

Mowbray's fate was sealed during a lunchtime meeting with Peter Lawwell, the Celtic chief executive, with lawyers also on hand to negotiate a settlement payment over his contract.

It is expected Celtic will explain the parting of the ways between them and the 46-year-old Mowbray as being "by mutual consent".

Neil Lennon, Celtic's first-team coach and former captain, is expected to take control of team affairs at least until the end of the season.

Norwich City's manager Paul Lambert and the out-of-work Mark Hughes have already been linked with the vacancy in Glasgow. Yet Lambert stated within the last month that he wants to remain within English football and Hughes may prove beyond the SPL side's budget.


I knew he wouldn't last tbh when he left West Brom.

Why am I making only Totti related posts?

 "Francesco Totti? He would make a great actor. Especially if the movie is going to be filmed next saturday."

ROMA, 25 marzo - Words from big Inter fan and movie director Gabriele Salvatores (Io non ho paura, Come Dio comanda, Quo vadis baby? *great movies*), who talked about the saturday Inter-Roma match. He reveals someone is seriously going to script the Roma captain in a movie. "He is also a great actor. If instead of playing saturday he wanted to do a movie, I'd script him. I will be more than happy. He has something necessary: self-irony, I'd see him in a movie, I think someone is thinking about it. Who? I can't say who. But I heard that someone would propose him this, I think they're valuting and he could be able to do it. Balotelli? No, actors need self-control, like Totti and I like him for this: Mario needs to find self-confidence and stability. There are other Inter players I'd script. Like Milito, a humble champion, the main character, a protagonist, but he doesn't forget this role." 

He also confessed to admire the coach José Mourinho:

"I admire him because he's good at working on his men in the locker room. Something that a good director has to do too."

And about saturday match:

"It's good how these two teams gave birth to a sort of derby lately. I like Roma, but I'll stand for my Inter. Roma has good players. I liked Roma back in Spalletti times, it played a nice football."


Come with me now on a journey through time and space... the last day of the premier league season.

According to the BBC's league predictor thingy, who's going to be making celebratory picspams galore, and who's going to be cliffing themselves on sunday 9th May 2010?

Who will win the league?

Manchester United

Who will come 4th?

Aston Villa
Manchester City

I got United winning the league (unfortunately) and Liverpool coming 4th on goal difference after we win all our remaining games (yes I am biased and ridiculously optimistic, shut up).

Burnley, Hull and Pompey all got relegated, but Pompey at least had something to smile about after their miraculous 9-0 win over Everton on the last day of the season haha.
