Open And Shut Case

As Mother Superior said in The Sound of Music, when one door closes another one opens.

Something along those lines anyway. Just before she sings this if my memory serves me correctly.

Anyway to more important things.

Today's closing door was in the face of Paul Ince.

Not entirely unexpected.

I'm not quite sure how I feel about it though. On the one hand I am not sure he was really cutting it. On the other hand I can't help noting that the Blackburn Board knew he did not have management experience in the Premiership when they appointed him. It might be argued that they should have expected to give him more support and more time before calling time.

The opening door sees the return of Eduardo, who is playing tonight in the reserve team against Portsmouth.

I'm delighted to see him back. How timely that I just happen to have purchased for my son an Arsenal home shirt with Eduardo and the number 9 on it for Christmas.

Merry Christmas son.

I'm sure Mr Ince will be consoled by his (I'm sure HUGE) settlement fee. That'll get the Mrs a Ferrari or three for xmas.

I wish I could get a couple of million quid for being sacked for being crap at my job.
