Jaguars owner treating his soccer club like the Browns

khan_khanketterman-e1339872621392

Jaguars owner Shad Khan has not revealed himself to be a patient man.

But the way he’s handling his English soccer team is positively Browns-ian.

Fulham has fired its second manager of the Premier League season, with Rene Meulensteen getting sacked (a positively charming English word for fired) after just 74 days in charge.

Fulham fired veteran coach Martin Jol (think of kind of a Dutch Wade Phillips) in early December, after Khan purchased the team in July.

For the record, Felix Magath was named manager today, but he might want to rent in London rather than buy.

And if Gus Bradley and Dave Caldwell thought they had a long time to turn things around in Jacksonville, they better think twice.

    “And if Gus Bradley and Dave Caldwell thought they had a long time to turn things around in Jacksonville, they better think twice.”

    look at the Jaguars roster and tell me they can “turn things around” quickly… I’ll wait.

    Who cares about soccer?

    “You’re sacked!”.

    Fortunately for Khan, the Jaguars cannot be relegated.

    Shad eats a heaping bowl of moguls for breakfast every morning.

    Well… there is less movement on his soccer team than on the pittsburgh steelers offensive line.

    Ummm if he fires Gus, we will take him in Bmore. That dude is awesome defined.

    For Fulham, this is a panic move. But hey, if an NFL team was going to get relegated to AFL, you wouldn’t be shocked to see a lot of turmoil as well.

    He won’t pull moves like that with the jags

    Fulham will probably be relegated and so should the Jags lmao…

    Fulham is a mess. They’re really bad. Kinda surprised the manager got sacked after a draw with United and taking Liverpool to the last minute though.

    Fulham will be relegated and then that is a huge income problem for Khan. This years Fulham team resembles the talent level of Jacksonville with the age issues of Pittsburgh – a disastrous combination when the bottom 3 teams are relegated each year

    It’s soccer. You think US fans are impatient, try living in the UK.

    They demand coaches to be fired after they lose a couple of games, revel in their teams taking gigantic financial risks in order to move slightly higher in the rankings, and heap ridiculous praise on average players who are paid far too much.

    This guy has to be one of the most awesomely photogenic people alive.

    Florida is becoming a hotbed of soccer, actually. Beckham is starting an MLS franchise in Miami, the WPSL is starting up there, and Jacksonville is in line for another franchise.

    “Pro Football Talk” appears to be loosely defined.

    I think it would have been more “Brownsian” if Haslam had seen what Lombardi and Banner did with a year in charge and then *left* them in charge for next year.

    Fortunately, he was smarter than that- much to PFT’s dismay.
