Middlesbrough have announced that manager Gareth Southgate has been 'relieved of his duties'.

Surprised by the timing of this. Middlesbrough won tonight are in 4th spot only a point out of first. Thought he would have gone after being relegated and when he didn't, thought Middlesbrough would have kept him for the rest of the year.

Heard he was one of the favourites. But would he go down to the Championship?

You think the SPL is comparable to the Championship? Not just me then!!

Apart from the big two, I would say that is just about accurate. I wonder if finacially, the rewards are the same as well. The possibility of qualifying by default to the CL in Scotland must be countered by the financial carrot that is the Premier League.

As for Southgates dismissal, when I heard it on SSNews this morning before work, I was surprised. Not that I particularly study the Championship, but Boro arent doing bad are they? And its not as if Southgate had the best resources?

Oh yes I am in full agreement with you on the SPL - I am tired of Old firm fans tell all what they would do in the premiership - there players wouldnt know what hit them - every team in the premiership would be a handful for them - I am not saying with time they might succeed - but the spl is no better than the top teams in the championship and I think you can count Middlesbro in that number.

Just look at Rangers in the CL.

By the way, your school must be on half term this week judging by the number of posting you have made during the week abcdef? lol

Laughing I agree 100% with that, Tick. The Sunday Pub League is no better than the championship.. only the top compares. It must be so god damn boring supporting a team in that league. Laughing

I think that as an ex Celtic manager and not an ex SPL manager, it would be a step down for Strachan. At least that's the way it would be played in the media.

There is no doubt that if Celtic and Rangers came into the Premier next season, they would have a lot of trouble and would in all likelihood be in a relegation fight.

But if they managed to avoid relegation, with their fan base, their stadiums and their name recognition world wide, both Rangers and Celtic could become a force in the Premier in a number of years with the increase to their revenues that membership in the Premier would bring.

Rangers and Celtic have to get out of the SPL or in a few years they won't be much bigger than Aberdeen or Hearts. 15 years ago Rangers made the semi final of the Champions League and could have won the game. Battle of Britain games were close encounters, not like now days. Celtic and Rangers have declined so rapidly the last 5-10 years that they have no choice but to get out of the SPL. If they can't get into the Premier then they have to hope that this Atlantic League idea takes float.

Although some of the morning papers over there are saying that it is a done deal and Strachan will be announced as manager before the week end.

Half term is next week, but I have finally been given a laptop and I do get one free period a day...plus a lunch break. My free period is spent doing work, but I must admit I abuse 1% of my time and use Talk Footy!
