9/24 keep their managers for a season - how ridiculous.

It really is a managerial merry go-round nowadays.

Fair play to Blackburn and Sheffield Wednesday for sticking and persisting with their manager, be it an average season or not.

Yes - after a slow start under him we've really hit form with the odd blip since January.

Remember when Sannino was here we were 2nd though - the players didn't like him though because the bloke didn't speak the lingo and as you probably saw during games was totally crazy at times in terms of antics!

Garcia was ill of course and McKinlay was a strange situation I agree.

Dave Hockaday - Not wanted at Forest Green Rovers, lands the Leeds gig. Not enough words.

Darko Milanic - Happy to play for a draw at home. Enough said.

Don't blame either, only Massimo Cellino.

Lee Clark's exit and Uwe Rosler's appointment added.

And McClaren and Warburton's exits from Derby and Brentford...

They will get added to the thread I do in August, yes. The season only officially finished today...
The aim was to do August to August.

Gray has done a good job with us, progressed us from last season and has worked on a shoestring this year. However that changes now and I doubt 13th place will be considered acceptable next season.

Nit to only win 5 home games in twelve months, not to be bored rigid with shit formations, he was bang average at best, fuck him off.
The away form was exceptional though, I think he deserves the chance to get it sorted at the top end of the pitch now. If he can get the attack as good as the defence we'll piss the league.

Fuck off, we won't piss any league never mind with negative Stu in charge, the boring c*** wants culling, and was the away form exceptional? I attended 21 always and was bored rigid.

Nowhere near thirteen, it was 9 in the league, many of which were backs to walk shit, I pay good money to be entertained not bored. Did you listen to most?
No I have a season ticket and go to pretty much every away game, fair enough it wasn't great to watch at times but we made progress and with the budget we had it's hard to bring in the quality at the top end of the pitch to play entertaining football. I hope it changes next season.

I'm have season tickets for home and away games, I hated last season, not really progress, we finished below Brum which after their start says how bad it was.

Robins should never have been given last Summer to prepare as we were dog shit last season.

Bournemouth spanking us is kind of thankful in hindsight.

Powell winning me round towards the end of season when we started trying to attack teams.

Think your lot will be the dark horses next season. Considering how good your defence/goalkeeper are, if you can get a 20 goal a season striker I think you'll be up there. Maybe even Stevie May..

With the right signings and a new manager maybe.....

I suppose it is obvious if you think about it, but I was surprised to read this morning that just six Championship clubs had the same manager as they had at the start of the season, and outside the top 9, it's just two .... bitter South Yorkshire rivals Wednesday and Rotherham.
I don't know about previous years but that seems an unusually harsh season for managerial casualties.
