Sound of Football Podcast 290 - Winning's for losers

If any babies were conceived on the night Leicester lifted the title, they might not have been born by the time Claudio Ranieri was sacked, such is the speed in which fortunes can be reversed in the Premier League.

The previous title winning coach, Jose Mourinho, didn't even manage to see the year out. Pellegrini before him lasted a season and a half before being told his contract wasn't to be extended. He, of course, took over from Mancini — a role he was linked with just eight months after the Italian won City's first title for over 40 years. To paraphrase one of Ranieri's former players — win stuff, get hanged.

With the casualty list of winning head coaches growing, why would anyone want to win the Premier League? Is there some wisdom in Arsene Wenger's approach after all? Join Graham, Terry and Jan as they decide whether winning stuff is actually all it's cracked up to be.
