A unwritten yet indisputable rule within professional football: When the manager of a professional football team wears a puffy coat to the game his team will lose.

In an instance where the manager of both teams wears a puffy coat those teams shall draw but with notably bad defending from both sides to prevent supporters being satisfied with the point.

Only Arsene Wenger is able to defy the puffy coat rule. His Arsenal side defeating the widely accepted 'best team in the world' Barcelona 2-1 despite their manager sporting the oversized coat.
Roy Hodgson and his puffy coat were relieved of the role of manager today after they lead Liverpool to their worst start for over 50 years. Hodgson another victim of the puffy coat rule having only been at the reigns for 31 games (the shortest in the club's history.)

Arsenal completed their comeback against Barcelona to win 2-1 courtesy of a strike by Andrei Arshavin. This result came despite their manager Arsene Wenger sporting a puffy coat on the touchline. Contrary to the puffy coat rule.
