Now it's Blackpool's turn - Riga's sacking had been pretty much coming since the summer. It would take an absolute miracle to reverse their decline.

Think we'll see a lot of these stories over the coming months and years.
In years gone by that would have been seen as a big opportunity - these days though Everton are a better club in a better league.

It's cool having our manager linked to inter though.

Their league ain't trash though. So many good teams in that league these days

I see Miroslav Klose (aged 63) is on a hat-trick after 60 odd minutes of the Serie A game between Lazio and Cagliari.

Rosler sacked at Wigan. After relative stability and patience with managers Whelan's fast becoming like many other chairmen. He was probably needing an excuse to get on SSN again, he's not been on for a while.

A little bit surprised at the Rosler sacking, but it goes to show that chairmen nowadays are not prepared to give managers time to turn things around.  Even Whelan admitted himself (back in the media spotlight I see) that the decision appeared very harsh.

One team you expect to be in and around the top four or five of the Championship and they fail massively every year now.

The fact that Zingarevich turned out to be a complete fraud didn't help them over the last two seasons. They have new owners now who will no doubt want to bring their own candidate in.
I didn't even remember I had a signature.

Absolutely no idea. All's I know is that they've been shite on the pitch, dropping something like 26 points out of 39/40?

IIRC what happened was that Zingarevich was announced with great fanfare, got given a controlling stake and was expected to take over, only to disappear without trace at the end of last season. They've got some new owners (I looked them up, they're from Thailand) who only took charge in September, the uncertainty about the club and the fact that they couldn't really sign players for money affected them really badly.

Maybe a more experienced manager could've turned it around quicker and maybe Adkins could've done it too given some transfer funds in January but we'll never know.
