Three At The Back / Ep 43: Rookie managers, the cult of Wes & the top four race

Listen on

Episode notes

The lads are joined by Chris Winterburn (@cmwinterburn) to debate the rise of rookie managers at high profile jobs - why teams are willing to hire them, the risk of becoming damaged goods, the pressure on them to take big jobs now rather than later, what the future holds for the likes of Frank Lampard and Mikel Arteta, the 'elite' coaching bracket and where the likes of Pochettino and Tuchel lie in it, and if it's unfair to lump Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in with the rookies. (from 29m) Before all that - we take a look at the top four race and Leicester's potential second bottling, Liverpool's chances of bridging the gap and if West Ham can hold on. Also, some Wes Hoolahan love, plus a look at the title races in France and Spain.
