Give over, football managers do not get "sacked" in the normal sense of the word. They get their fixed term contracts paid up and told to leave.

Anyway, judging by the comments of their chairman he has something else on the go:



He must have about 20 years of paid up contracts for 3 years work to retire on then

Indeed, one might describe it as stealing a living.

I’m sure you knew him well.... he lived in Grainthorpe


Grainthorpe and Marshchapel are hardly a million miles away from each other!

He was no mug as far as football was concerned and like other managers, if he could get some decent players, he could get results.


That was as big a factor as any as to why Slade Mk II didn't work.

In his first spell we had been in the second tier the season before last, and had been there for year. We were a big club for the level and a much easier sell to players.

Second time round we were in our first season back as a league club after 7 seasons, and on our 3rd manager of our first season back. Bignot had blown a load of cash and every player we were legitimately linked to, we weren’t able to entice..(Tyler Walker on loan, Nicky Maynard, Eoin Doyle).

Gave some truly terrifying post match interviews towards the end, like a deer caught in the headlights, it was clear to see he had no idea what was happening or how to fix it. Yeovil away sticks out

There's a difference between knowing what's wrong and what needs doing and talking about bad games and results to the media. It is fair to say Slade was absolutely terrible with the media at times but that does not mean he didn't know what was happening or how to fix it, simply that for whatever reason, he couldn't.

A bloke who has been a professional manager all those years can work out what's wrong but that's only half the problem. Buckley Mk3 could work out what was wrong when he was there and he'd been out of the game altogether ......  he didn't have the resources and contacts to fix it but that doesn't make him a bad manager to be vilified because his last spell ended in a failure. Neither should Slade.

Slades' approach to fixing things appeared to be signing more loan players than he could actually play!

Buckley MkIII doesn't seem so bad considering some of the stuff that's gone on since Raf!
