Caster Semenya, I believe, is intersex. So, not made up, and not confusing.

What the fuck is interphobia?

Just something else made up to confuse people

I suffer from it, I don't want to be buried anytime soon.

Any Villa players in the u17 squad that are handing the French the whole two fingered salute?

No, none. 7 from Manchester City though.

Just as it looked like he’d turned it round.

De Zerbi and Poch both walking with seemingly no jobs lined up.  Seems odd, unless the attraction of Man U is that big.

My guess is that he's been told there's no money to spend, and that the club will be selling a couple of first teamers from under him to balance the books after missing out on the champions league again - and he's thought "that's not what I was promised, no thanks".

Haven't they just dropped 30m on some Brazilian? Literally yesterday.

He likely had very little say in transfers. Certainly had zero say in overall policy.

More likely that he was unable to manage the expectations of the Board, he was dealing with people that have very little idea about how to run a football club.
They have embarked on a massive experiment and don’t want to hear that maybe they haven’t got the recruitment strategy right.

I've seen it said several times that the manager had no say in transfers. Absolutely ridiculous policy.

I think they'll continue to spend but from the outside looking in, it sounds like he wasn't allowed to have any say on ins and outs of the squad.

With all that being said, some are saying that Chelsea are looking for a young manager to fill the role, but seeing as they have no patience for ANYONE.. how is that a sustainable model?!
