Auf Wiedersehen Ket

You've got to feel for Temuri Ketsbaia. After quitting Anorthosis Famagusta in April as the first manager ever to lead a Cypriot side into the Champions League, the Georgian loon took up the reins at Olympiakos in May. But only a handful of games into the new season, and on the eve of the club's Champions League fixture against AZ Alkmaar, he's gone.

The phrase "left by mutual agreement" is usually a footballing euphemism for "sacked" - but if the decision was at least partially Ketsbaia's, perhaps he had an aversion to coaching a team wearing red and white...

And if five wins and a draw aren't enough to placate the Olympiakos hierarchy, heaven help them if they seriously think that Captain Lager might be the answer...
