    Managers' hot seats

    Post by RRC on Mon 20 Oct 2014, 6:44 pm

    Brum have sacked Lee Clark and his assistant Steve Watson, with Blues lying 21st in the Championship.

    "Lee Clark's departure can hardly be viewed as a major surprise. They have won only one
    home game in the Championship since 1 October 2013 - that is 24 games and counting.
    It was their away form that saved them on the final day of last season, and it is also points
    on their travels that holds them a point above the drop-zone now. The only question now is
    who fancies taking on a tough job? Given the delicate ownership situation at St Andrew's it
    is a task that should not be considered lightly." BBC WM

    It was another kind of managerial hot seat when Marseille manager Marcelo Bielsa sat
    on scalding coffee during his side's victory over Toulouse and burned his backside.

    I watched that last night in ESPN and cracked up. Gives a new meaning to the "Hot Seat."

    Who sits down without first eyeballing the place you are about to sit on? It could be wet or dirty or there could be hot coffee in a beaker there.

    You couldn't make it up, could you?

    Apparently the lucky man next in line is Neil Redfearn, who's already had two goes as
    caretaker manager - between Grayson and Warnock and between Warnock and McDermott.
    Any betting on how long he'll last?

    How long can we let monsters like Massimo Cellino ruin great clubs like Leeds United?

    There's an interesting article from an unlikely source (Martin Samuel in the Daily Wail) about
    football club owners in general, and the sacking of managers and Signor Cellini in particular.

    It also discusses how clubs and their traditions could be safe-guarded from the kind owners
    who have no affinity with the clubs they buy and who seem to be more and more common.

    Samuel has an interesting suggestion, which the FA certainly won't adopt -
    ". . . there should be a Cellino rule, stating that no club can fire more than two managers in
    a season, maybe even a calendar year. Limitations are placed on player sales, why not on
    the engagement of coaches? It cannot be right that a fool from on high can conduct a literal
    manager-of-the-month competition."

    I actually have some empathy with their fans. I never thought I would, the reasons have been posted on here in the past and are known. However, as lowly as I think of them, as a club and as fans, they do turn up in quite large numbers everywhere they go.

    This is obviously THE hot topic - BBC Sport has an article now.

    The least safe places to be a manager are the Championship and Nottingham.

    The hottest hot-seats in English football (number of managers since the start of 2009/2010)
    9 Notts County
    7 Nottm Forest
    7 Crystal Palace
    7 Watford
    7 Portsmouth
    6 Bristol City
    6 Hartlepool
    6 Scunthorpe
    6 Sheffield United

    The sack race: are chairmen running out of patience?

    Ten days is a long time in football management


    December 5th Full support
    Reading director of football Nicky Hammond says manager Nigel Adkins continues to have the
    full support of the club's executive board. "We all know managers are judged on results," said Hammond.
    "But he has the support of myself, everyone at the training ground, and I don't sense any lack of support
    for him at executive level of the club."

    December 15th Sacked
    A club statement said, "Following this weekend's 6-1 defeat at Birmingham, the board feel that
    a change in manager is necessary."

    Hyypia resigns - Pulis available but not favourite


    No surprises here.

    TONY Pulis has said he is "open to offers" if Brighton and Hove Albion come calling following the resignation of Sami Hyypia.

    Hyypia has stepped down as manager of Brighton just six months into his tenure at the Amex Stadium.

    The former Liverpool defender took over from Oscar Garcia on a three-year contract in the summer but leaves with the Seagulls in the Sky Bet Championship relegation zone after winning just one of their last 18 league games.

    Hyypia's assistant Nathan Jones will take charge of the team on Boxing Day.

    In a statement club chairman Tony Bloom said: "Sami has worked extremely hard since joining the club last summer. Despite some good performances, including most recently at Wolves, results haven't gone as well as we all had hoped and expected.

    "Sami is an incredibly honourable man. He remains a hugely respected and very popular figure at our club. He has decided to step down for the benefit of the team and the club.

    "We are all very disappointed but we respect Sami's decision and we all wish him well for the future."

    Pulis, who had a successful spell in charge of Stoke City, said: "If anybody rings, then I will talk to anybody, and we will work it out from there."

    It is believed, though, that Brighton have approached MK Dons about talking to boss Karl Robinson.

    Liverpudlian Robinson, now 34, became the youngest manager in the Football League when MK appointed him in May 2010 at the age of 29 and is regarded as a bright young coach with a team that plays an attractive brand of football.

    Derby Telegraph


    Meanwhile at Reading . . .


    Steve Clarke, lately manager of the Baggies, saw his new team lose 0-1 to Watford,
    extending Reading's home run of not scoring to three games.

    West Brom set to appoint former Stoke manager


    Tony Pulis is set to be named West Brom head coach on a two-and-a-half-year deal to succeed the sacked Alan Irvine.

    The 56-year-old former Stoke and Crystal Palace manager is likely to be confirmed in the position on Thursday.

    It is hoped he will be in the stands at Upton Park for West Brom's New Year's Day Premier League visit to West Ham.

    There are still some details to be decided, but the deal to make Pulis the club's fourth head coach in a year is expected to proceed without a problem.

    Brighton appoint Chris Hughton


    The 56-year-old succeeds Sami Hyypia who resigned from the south coast club earlier this month.

    Hughton inherits a team that are currently sat in 21st position in the Sky Bet Championship, after a poor season which has so far seen them accrue 23 points from 24 league games.

    Hughton has an abundance of experience managing in the Football League, having taken charge of Newcastle United, Birmingham City and Norwich City.

    It's him again . . .

    Massimo Cellino weighs up fourth sacking in seven months


    Current manager Neil Redfearn in peril after five defeats in seven league games left the
    Yorkshire club deep in a relegation battle.

    Leeds owner Massimo Cellino is running out of patience with Redfearn after the club’s slide
    towards the relegation zone and could soon be looking for his fifth manager in seven
    months. Cellino has been growing increasingly concerned following five defeats in seven
    Championship games and is weighing up whether to end Redfearn’s brief spell in charge.

    Redfearn was appointed in November after three separate spells as caretaker after
    succeeding Darko Milanic, whose reign lasted just 32 days. But the 49-year-old has
    suffered five defeats in seven Championship games, with the 2-0 loss at Derby County
    leaving Leeds one point clear of the bottom three.

    Cellino has already dispensed with Brian McDermott, Dave Hockaday and Milanic during his
    stormy spell as owner at Elland Road. He will appear before the Football League on
    January 15 after appealing against his disqualification for breaching the “fit and proper
    person” ownership test.

    So all 3 of the teams relegated from tge prem have got rid of their managers. No real surprise I thought all 3 had made bad choices for a championship campaign.
