According to a mate who supports Sarfend, the chairman released a video blaming the players and the management team for the clubs relegation last season. He absolved himself of all responsibility and considering they were handed a points deduction for going into administration. Pretty much a complete **** if you ask me.

It's said a strong chairman never takes the easy option and panders to the whims of the fans. At least you can't accuse Ashley of being weak.
Hughton was never going to get them anywhere above mid table. He was going to go when his contract was up anyway so there was no point having him hanging around - Calderwood knew that.

Just another reason why I'm totally disillusioned with the Premiership. It was only last week he was being strongly linked with the England managers job, with a number of Bolton players giving him their backing. A total joke but the writing was on the wall as soon as the chicken farmers took over. What's the bets he'll be the next West Ham manager?
yea it never happens in the Football league does it i think you will find Burnley & Charlton are just as guilty of the above

Kilmarnock have confirmed Kenny Shiels' appointment as manager on a permanent basis.

The Russian national football championship unexpectedly drew attention of the world mass media after the defeat of the Chechen football club Terek coached by a world famous Dutch football player Ruud Gullit.  Before the match against Perm’s Akmar club the Chechen president Ramzan Kadyrov had given the two-time World Player of the Year an ultimatum: win against Ankar Perm or get the sack. On Tuesday, the team from Grozny lost to Perm’s Amkar 0:1 and Kadyrov announced that Gullit won’t coach Terek anymore.

Title: Re: Football Managers
Post by: BackOfTheNet on March 04, 2012, 14:45:31 pm
I feel a bit sorry for AVB (not that sorry, given how much he'll get paid off, but you know...). He inherited an ageing but highly influential core set of players there that previous managers have also stated hold too much sway behind the scenes. AVB's problem was that he inherited them at a time when they don't necessarily warrant a place in the team every week so they were against him almost from the off when they were left out. It's difficult in any walk of life to manage a team containing a petulant barrack-room-lawyer type who keeps stirring everyone up. Having two or three of them must make things next to impossible.

It strikes me as a very unhealthy situation and I have a feeling they might struggle under any manager until there is a proper changing of the guard in the playing staff.

Probably knows that he has taken Crawley as far as he can, size of club etc.. and would probably struggle in the third notwithstanding their possible points deduction.
Rotherham one of the bigger clubs in the fourth division for next season unless they achieve play-off success.  New stadium and the upturn in results from the inpetus and increased attendances should set him off with some success, I would say a good move.

I think Rodgers could be a good appointment for Liverpool. Young, talented, has an eye for a good player and sets his teams out to play good football.

However.... If they don't get off to a good start next season I fear he may get some of "The Hodgson Treatment" from the fans since he isn't a "big enough" name for them. Given some of the dross he will have to work with (by Premiership standards) I don't think he'll find it very easy to begin with.

He's better off out of it. I felt some of the abuse he got from supporters last year was beyond the pail and the Venkys and their "global football advisor" have **** him over and undermined him at every turn. Ultimately, he took them down so had they forced him out then there would have been a certain amount of understanding to the decision.

However they didn't, so you can really only judge the guy on how he does this year. He goes on a six match unbeaten run in the league but the moment they lose a game the "Kean out" chants start up again and within a week he's gone. **** them, I hope he gets a decent payoff, goes on to better things elsewhere and the wheels completely fall off at Blackburn in his wake. It couldn't happen to a nicer bunch.

Feet comfortably under the table at Donny now the dole queue, too greedy, too quick.  His CV would've been so much better by staying at Doncaster. Silly boy.

I agree. Both are clubs which are seriously punching above their weights.

Wigan are doing very well to maintain a high-end Championship position given their Europa League commitments. Plus they're a small club for that league.

Crawley are a non-league club which has established itself in mid-table L1. What do the fans/board expect?

Interesting, they're not keen on failure the Italians. Whereas the FA pat each other on the back, say carry on Roy you are doing a fine job. Meanwhile they pay a cockney spiv from the entertainment and television industry (who openly stated he supports Brentford and Man Utd at the same time)a nice little QUANGO to come up with a joke solution to all England's problems that involves crushing everything from Premier League downwards. Face facts here we are sh!t but do you know what? We don't care, it's only a circus to break up the summer.
Cobblers back to training tomorrow a bright(er) season to look forward to as well so who honestly will care about England's plight come the beginning of August?
No-one
Well no-one but those FA bigwigs who will be scared stiff of having their next freeloading jolly to foreign shores cut short by the team getting knocked out!

4. Takes them to the bottom of league1 and sacked.

GJ is like most managers...he cannot halt a slide which he managed. Wilder has ticked that box....first Cobblers manager I've known too...

If you are in need of a laugh have a read of this When Saturday Comes article (WSC 173 July 2001) about Johnson being sacked from the Latvia manager's job. It includes the classic

"..John­son left Latvia a for­lorn, tragi-comic figure after the dis­grace of drawing with San Marino on April 25 (on a comparative scale, we are talking Real Madrid drawing with an injury dec­imated Corby Town) and losing even a math­em­atical possibility of qualifying for the 2002 World Cup."
and
"At the end of the game(against San Marino), the stadium echoed to the chant of “Dzonsons go home”, to a rhythm set by the drums he himself had bought. Johnson managed to make things worse by physically attacking a foot­ball rep­orter after the game and then blaming press negativity for the result. The next day, headlines talked of The Blackest Day in Latvian Football and resignation was finally wres­tled out of him. Since that eventful evening, abuse from Latvian coaches as well as the press has been heaped on John­son’s head."

I did find this just after Johnson became Cobblers manager and I prayed that something similar won't happen here ...... er... it did ! >:(

Post by: pattcobb on March 30, 2015, 20:05:24 pm
I was at Wembley yesterday. Wilkin is trying to do a Wilder and get rid of big earners (relatively) however he took Wrexham's skipper off with 20 minutes to go and 2-0 up, replaced him with a twenty year old local lad. The fickle crowd cheered the lad on as "one of their own" As a neutral I witnessed Wrexham loose all shape and composure, to eventually loose on pens. So thats what got him the sack ultimately.

PS Although North Ferriby had a decent left winger ( St Juste) Louis Moult was the best player on the pitch by a good margin.

Obviously as a Blade he will want a tilt at the Championship but do you think a Prem club could spin his head?

Depends how the severance was worked out.....we could have given him a lump sum, we could still be paying him full whack as per his contract.

If he was on 2k a week with us contracted until July 18, and then he took a job on at Vale for 1k a week then we'd probably have to pay him the remaining 1k a week until his contract with us was due to end.

I guess we'd have to be careful with him and make sure we were still paying him properly otherwise he'd be suing for breach of contract...... ;)

He would have to be available for work to be able to claim his wage under the contract.
I believe managers usually negotiate for around half the remaining total due in a lump sum to cancel the contract and allow them to work elsewhere. There's a rumour that Johnson negotiated hard with Cardoza for a hefty pay off knowing full well he was about to walk back into the Yeovil job, which he did about three days later.

Totally different choice from anything that you will have ever considered.....

Darren Sarll - recently sacked by Stevenage.

Why him?

For some reason, since he took over at Stevenage, they had 1 call-up for England U-19, 4 for N.Ireland U-21, and 1 for N.Ireland U-19 (who is actually an U-16).  Seems like he had a way with developing youth players.........  (no comparison with Crewe under Dario Gradi, please).

Could be a way of getting money from the club for any owner looking to get some return........  ??????

Safer to be a manager in L2

Safer in League 2 because 2 teams go down and 4 teams go up.

Also, missing Birmingham from that list.

Am I right in thinking only Rochdale and Burton are the only clubs who haven't sacked managers but still occupy a relegation zone?

Called him not lasting the rest of the season. Dont know why they ever thought he would be a good appointment, certainly in the position they were in.

Jack Lester gone at Chesterfield too after a shocking season.

Paul Hurst and Chris Doig take over at Ipswich, didn't Doig play along side Luke Chambers for us ? I also think that Shrewsbury could struggle without them.

Yes, Doig did play alongside Chambers. You have to feel a little sorry for Shrewsbury, like us, a little success and off goes your manager.

With him, Askey and Hurst and our own Austin picking up jobs, it's good to see fresh faces being given the chance rather than the same old failures from the past or some non English speaking manager from abroad

That's three managers already sacked this season after four league games. It's a cut throat business.

Throwing cabbages is banned at Old Trafford after Andy Cole was struck on the head by one. I think it's know as Coles law.
