IN MANY ways the Kenna is a carbon copy of the Champions League. Football’s most talented managers locked in a high stakes tactical battle, scrutiny from fans and media across the globe, the thought of premium lager never far away.
The two competitive arenas share one other inescapable comparison – no manager has ever won twice on the bounce.
So it’s with great interest that everyone is watching the indomitable progress of Sporting Lesbian.
The defending champions, who won the Kenna so convincingly in May, are right back on top of the table after three competitive weeks of the season.
Podolski, Giaccherini, Wilson, Coloccini, Coleman and de Gea are all, like Mick Philpott in hero mode, setting the place on fire. Goals, assists and clean sheets are flooding in. And Stevan Jovetic hasn’t even played yet.
The omens bode well for the Sporting boss, in the last three seasons the winner of August’s MOTM award has gone on the take the title.
Things don’t look so rosy for Still Don’t Know Yet. In four of the eight Kenna seasons, the last-placed team at this stage of the campaign has gone on to be relegated.
