The Daily Dirt: New York City FC already needs a new manager

Hopefully Atlanta United won't have the same problem after one season of play.

It appears New York City FC is living up to the temperamental reputation earned by sports teams in the Big Apple and its sister club across the pond in Manchester. Jason Kreis is out as manager after only one year of existence for NYCFC. Ownership claims "there was not enough evidence of the dynamics required to improve the performance of the team for the next season and beyond," but fans at Hudson River Blue aren't too happy with the move.

Moving forward, potential candidates to replace Kreis might include big names such as Carlo Ancelotti, Fabio Capello, and Sigi Schmid. Although, former Arsenal and Manchester City standout Patrick Vieira, who now runs Man City's Elite Development Squad, may be the favorite.

Meanwhile in London, the situation is getting pretty bleak for Chelsea and insufferable manager Jose Mourinho. The Special One has received another fine and stadium ban for verbal abuse of match officials, and it looks like he's lost his team. Cesc Fabregas and John Terry, however, claim that isn't the case, despite the dire performances on the field.

And with its new manager looking on from the stands, Villa rolled over against Spurs. The win moved Tottenham up to fifth place in the Premier League with 20 points from 11 games. Aston Villa, on the other hand, is dead last, sitting on just four points after losing nine of 11.
