Sacking season in full swing

Press Releasein Football

A very interesting article on the merits of the recent sacking of football club managers, it would be interesting to find out if ever these changes influence the role of the groundstaff at these clubs in respect of resources and expectations?

Phil Brown walked through the doors at Preston North End on Thursday afternoon delivering the time-honoured line about the honour of taking over at a great club with a long history.

We could be hearing quite a lot of that sort of talk over the next few weeks given the current number of managerial vacancies in the Football League.

North End appointed Brown after dispensing with the services of Darren Ferguson on 29 December. Burnley parted company with Brian Laws on the same day.

Since then Barnet have sacked Mark Stimson, Crystal Palace fired George Burley, Stockport dismissed Paul Simpson, Charlton waved goodbye to Phil Parkinson and Walsall ditched Chris Hutchings. Then on Friday morning it emerged that Roy Keane had lost his job at Ipswich.
