Meulensteen - An Act of Fear!

Meulensteen - An Act of Fear!

Rene Meulensteen`s reign as being the person in charge of the first team lasted a mere 75 days.

His record, of 10 points from 13 games is, strangely enough, identical to that of his predecessor, Martin Jol`s spell this season.

In being axed by Fulham, at a critical stage of our season, Meulensteen becomes the third shortest tenure of a Premier League manager, nestling in behind Alan Shearer who spent 59 days in charge of Newcastle and Les Reed who spent 40days in charge of Charlton.

Speaking about his axing, Meulensteen revealed,

"I knew the owners were freaking out a little bit that there was the possibility of the club going down."

"The way forward we have discussed with the club was about longevity and in this case it is clearly an act of fear."

There is speculation in the media today that Meulensteen could beset to join Ole Gunnar Solksjaer, at Cardiff, if so we`d like to wish him well and hope that his time in charge hasn`t dented his enthusiasm to become a top manager.
