Sacked after taking Tranmere to a 7th place finish and a play-off place.

Apparently it might be to do with a post match interview he gave on Saturday.

Didn't Forest Green do the same the year we won promotion?

Even though they have got into the play-offs some are glad to see the back of him.

I wonder what they would have been saying if he had got them relegated?

It did make me smile seeing Salford City just missing out on the play-offs  


I wouldn't say I was the best manager in the business. But I was in the top one.

I thought i'd look up strange managerial sackings after reading this...

https://www.fourfourtwo.com/features/26-maddest-managerial-sackings-ever-football

If you are anything like FourFourTwo, you stopped celebrating growing another year closer to death some time ago. But not even we’ve ever received a P45, instead of a card from Aunt Mildred, on our birthday.

Spare a thought, then, for Trevor Francis, who was sacked as Crystal Palace boss on the day he turned 49 in April 2003. “He just sat there quietly and said, ‘But it’s my birthday,’” recounted former Eagles chairman Simon Jordan in his autobiography. “I said, ‘Many happy returns, Trev’, and handed him his P45.”

The birthday boy swiftly headed for the training pitch to disseminate the information. “Well, lads, I’ve been sacked,” huffed Francis. “Have a good summer holiday.”

And to think Palace had beaten Grimsby 4-1 away the week before.

I remember that game well - a young Wayne Routledge inspired spanking. It was the game where the penny began to drop that we weren't long for this world as far as second tier status was concerned. Never mind, I thought, a season tearing up Division Two and come back stronger again the following season - it wouldn't be so bad after all.

Yeah, not quite how things panned out...

Routledge was absolutely unplayable that day.  Only 17 too wasn't he?  

For all the jokes and what not, Tony Gallimore was rarely skinned.  He got absolutely roasted that day by Routledge.  It got to the point where Gally was just trying to kick him but wasn't even getting close.  I'll always remember Routledge going past him, waiting for Gally to recover and giving him a hushed finger to the lips before going past him again.

Shithousery at its finest.

I remember the last game of that season against Brighton (Michael Keane etc), there was a hastily made small banner on display in the main stand, saying something like 'on loan to div 2 for 1 year'.

Which I suppose was spot on.

Yes, good that Salford City did not make the play-offs despite spending a lot of money.  

Another team who missed out again is Exeter. Before Cambridge beat us Exeter had scored the most goals (70) and had the joint-best goal difference (21).  They made £6 Million from the sale and sell-on share for Ollie Watkins.  This money still did not enable them to even get in play-offs.
