Managerial Merrygoround Thread


The backwater that is Scottish football is his level, he was ran out of Bolton


Possibly, but this is the third time in less than two and a half years that the Thai owners have shown that credit for past services rendered at Leicester City doesn’t last too long. Nigel Pearson got fired at the end of the 2014/15 season, notwithstanding a run of 7 wins and 1 draw over the last 9 games which saw Leicester rise from a distant bottom to survival. Claudio Ranieri was fired less than 9 months after winning the league title. The Craig Shakespeare appointment and the run of 5 straight wins in his first 5 league games (for a side who had lost their previous 6 league games without scoring a goal) effectively saved Leicester from relegation. Based on past form though the credit for that wasn’t going to last too long.

Shakespeare would have known what demanding taskmasters he had when he took on the job and ultimately he can have no complaints about his dismissal.


Uneasy lies the head that wears the crown.

Now is the winter of our discontent.


He should have seen the dagger before him long before today.


They can bury Craig under the car park with Richard 3rd


Lennon being tipped. English football certainly has fair share of exits and entrances and one man in his time plays many parts.


Neil would want to have his head examined to take the Leicester job, cushy number up in Scotland winding up the huns, SFA bans who’d want to leave that craic


Very true, he’d want to remember all that glisters is not gold.


huge surprise on the cards for the Leicester job


A real football man ,


When is David O’Leary going to get back into the bloody game?


Koeman has got the bullet.




De Boer is available I guess.


Martin O’Neill might be tempted.


We’d never be that lucky


Ah yea, big fan of Everton and vice versa.


Dyche might be tempted


Wayne Rooney, player manager.


Team bonding sessions would be interesting
