Managerial Merry-Go-Round 2020


Recommended Posts

The continued season is only one game in and it already has its first managerial casualty.

Out goes Jonathon Woodgate to be replaced at the Riverside by everyone’s friend Neil Warnock. Warnock, who has the best ever anagram of Colin W*nker, just refuses to retire !

Keith Hill will leave Bolton at the end of the season and be replaced by Barrow’s Ian Evatt.

Elsewhere, Sol Campbell leaves Roots Hall by “mutual consent”. Shock, horror !

With the situations at both clubs in August, what was either manager expected to do ? I’m no particular fan of Campbell’s, but for him to cop the flack for a disastrous season at one of this years basket case clubs is ridiculous. 

Last summer Bolton didn’t know if they would exist come the opening day. Plus calling off matches for lack of players and then playing the youth team as the firs XI, it’s a wonder Hill managed to get any draws let alone wins during his short tenure.

Hill will be in work come the start of the season (maybe Barrow ?) but Campbell’s future I would suggest is less clear.

However, good luck to both of them.

Danny Cowley sacked by Huddersfield despite leading them to safety. Seems an odd one - perhaps financial?

The statement sounds like a personality clash with the phrase “we have a different vision for the way we operate”

Wasn’t there a few rumours of them being considered for another championship just a few weeks back?

Maybe they left it until they were safe as to not rock the boat but want them gone as they are not focused on the club?

Cowley and Pearson succeed in their aims and get the sack, meanwhile De Gea is throwing them in every week at Man United and he remains undroppable.

It's a funny old game.

That's a shock to me. Has he got another job lined up or is it a cost cutting exercise?

I doubt he'd resign if he got another job in the pipeline.
