If only the makers of Spitting Image were still about, they would have an absolute field day with Roland Duchatelet and his crazy network of
puppets characters…. actually I think I was right first time….
Is this really for real? Someone please wake me from this very strange dream I am having.
Standard, who won yesterday in an eventful game at bottom place Lierse, have already fired Guy Luzon and Duchatelet appointed his number two Ivan Vukomanovic in November.
Vukomanovic had improved Les Rouches league position a lot since the dark riot infested days of Luzon. The Serbian had won 7 of Standard’s 11 games since being in charge, but they are still struggling to make the Jupiler League’s crazy play-off system.
Riga has been sacked twice by Duchatelet previously and oversaw the debacle at Blackpool and was publicly upset at the way he was treated by the Belgian matriarch after he rescued the Addicks from relegation, only to be shown the revolving door.
It does make you wonder if Duchatelet finds Riga suitable for one of his ‘children,’ why and earth did he not bring him back to The Valley?
Anyway I’m off to put a fiver on Ivan Vukomanovic being The Valley boss before the season is out!
