Seems that Carvalhal had them endlessly Stamming lately - ie playing the ball sideways/backwards. These lads were infuriated that they've had players with decent pace who haven't been using it. The caretaker fella has just come in and gone 'RUN AT EM LADS', which clearly worked. Dunno why Swansea have been losing but I'm not sure he's the bloke to fix it.

That echoes the comments I've received from Wednesday fans. They're not happy at the prospect of Schteeve but I reckon they'll warm to him in the early days as he'll probably follow that tact. It'll be fine until they get worked out, start losing and he can't change it.

Carvalhal hired by Swansea, and immediately available at 33/1 to be the next manager to lose his job. :mrgreen:

Warburton's toast at Forest.
You know, I'm sick of following my dreams, man. I'm just going to ask where they're going and hook up with 'em later.

Forest sacked Warburton. Prefer if they had waited until after we play them...

Could go either way - it's not like they have a new man in place yet to impress

They'll be playing to keep their jobs I expect. We need to destroy them.

I can see the monk being in the mix.

How many teams have sacked their manager right before we play them this season? It seems like it’s been a few.

That's because they know with Leeds to play its three points in the bag.

FFS...its always us first up for a newly Managerless team or first game for new Manager.

..and its on Sky too so that's another kick in the nuts...we rarely play well on TV.

My small sample aren't really talking about individuals, just the usual 'isn't football shite these days' stuff.

I wonder if this was why Mark Hughes felt confident enough to say...

"I don't do relegation"

Another Watford manager bites the dust, that club has little patience with its managers.

Interesting that they have cited the fallout from the Everton approach as the reason for sacking him. I think that translated roughly means. We've got rid of the sulky twat.
