The End Of The Romance
I'd like to claim to have been astonished at the sacking of Ranieri, but that's simply not the case. It was easy to see it coming. In fact, it's consistent with the events of recent seasons. The second coach in succession - it seems that's what they call managers these days - to get the boot in the season immediately following his team winning the Premier League. And then there was last year's sacking of a coach whose team had just won the FA Cup. Unthinkable in the bad old days when loyalty meant something. Now not just thinkable but highly likely.
