Recommended Posts

So, who do you all think the first manager will be to be sacked this ( up and coming ) season?

I'm going for Kevin Keegan - just got a feeling.

ALEX FERGUSON :lol: (fingers crossed)

Seriously tho, i agree, he'd be my favourite.

Curbs at West Ham, he has just given Freddie Lyundberg a £6M pay off according to the papers and the board are not amused.

I bet Freddie is though!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :lol:

Old Thaksin has the air of a man who gets bored easily, old Hughesy had better get off to a good start or he will be toast. Either that or the owner could just abandon the club and get back on a plane home.

I'll go for Ince.

Ince will be given plenty of time to prove himself.

We don't tend to sack managers!

Looks like Boro Sera may get this as KK is on the edge, will he jump or will it be a push?! :blink:

It was funny, when the story broke about Keegan having seemingly left Newcastle I was speaking to my dad about it & said I was unhappy because he's a crap manager who would never achieve anything at Newcastle but I was also happy because I was going to put money on Curbishley on being the 1st premiership manager to leave & this meant I'd have lost my money. Turns out I'd have won afterall

This is a sack race.......What happens when someone jumps first, before getting the sack? Do the bookies pay out?

Just interested

It's very rare a manager gets "sacked" nowadays, especially at the top level. They usually leave "by mutual consent", even if an under pressure manager has said he wouldn't be resigning under any circumstances just a couple of days earlier. With that in mind I'd imagine they just pay out on the 1st person to leave the job

Yes, the bookies pay out regardless of the manner of departure.

Spent last week in Spain and missed all the fun. I'm pretty sure there's a big red self destruct button at Newcastle that people just can't resist pressing - Top entertainment :P

It makes me smile when a manager has the "Full backing of the board" Full backing that is until the next game when points are dropped :lol: then the manager is dropped too!

Looks ilke you were wrong, poor old Ince has been :blowup: out.

I wonder who they will appoint to guide you into the Championship? Allardyce/Curbs/Shearer?

Yup it was pressure from the Trust on the Board :(

Championship? I think not!! (Crosses fingers & starts praying)

Good to see old Malteser head getting the boot

The chairman has got to look at himself though, if you appoint somebody into 1 of the biggest jobs at your organisation & then have to sack them 6 months later, you've made a big mistake in appointing them in the 1st place, there's no doubt about it

The Board were prepared to give him more time but the jack Walker Trust are focused on the value of the club as they are trying to sell.

Because of the club's position they wanted drastic changes to try and improve the club's league standing as they would get a better price in the Premiership than the Championship.

I personally hope a new buyer is found because with owners like that nobody is safe at the club :angry:

They used to give the club £3million a year. In June they stopped this and instructed some advisors to find a buyer for the club.

jack Walker is probably turning in his grave at how they are handling his home town club :(
