The tiny 15th Century hamlet of A Barca in north-western Spain is seeking a new owner. The right person could take possession of the 12 crumbling houses, and the picturesque land surrounding them, without paying a single euro.

A huge dam project in the late 1950s forced villagers to leave, and the abandoned houses fell into disrepair.

But now the mayor of Cortegada, the municipality that oversees A Barca, is offering the hamlet for free - provided the new owner can come up with a development plan to preserve the original buildings and provide employment for people in Cortegada.

Coaches’ survival rate lowest in Greece says UEFA

Top-flight coaches in Greece keep their jobs for a mere four months on average, according to UEFA’s club licensing report, while the average across the continent is 17 months.

Of the big five European leagues, France and England offer the most stable environments for coaches at 24 months, followed by Germany (22), Italy (19) and Spain (11).

Northern Ireland provides the greatest hope for survival in Europe with coaches remaining an average of 86 months in the same post, according to the report released on Thursday.

It's probably true of the four-wheeled variety as well!  Think the new competition law is trying to do something about it....?  :blink:
