Why are there a lot of people out there who have got a hang up about sacking a manager of a football club? Yes, clubs going down the Tottenham Hotspur route probably isn’t the way to go, but that might be more to do with the owner and the CEO’s characters of that club as they already had a very good manager in Harry Redknapp.
I wouldn’t like to sack the manager of a football club without giving him a fair crack of the whip, but once he’s had that chance, or if it’s obvious that he’s not up to the job, whether he’s been there 5 minutes or 5 years, then his ass has to go! Only in extreme cases should you go down the Spurs route, and that’s only if you stupidly pick the wrong guy to manage your club all the time.
I think the way Dave Whelan has wielded the axe at Wigan since Roberto Martinez went to Everton, is a good example on how you keep sacking until you get the right man at your club. But if you have an owner and CEO like Randy Lerner and Tom Fox making these decisions at your club, then you’re going to be in a spot of bother. They must be the only people in the whole wide world who can’t see that Lambert and Keane need to go.
But isn’t it funny how some people out there, who seem to have a campaign to get the likes of Arsen Wenger (Adrian Dhuram) sacked, then overlook the shortcomings of an incompetent manager like Lambert. I guess a man who’s won League titles, FA Cups, League Cups and constantly gives their fans Champions League football is more worthy of the sack than a man who’s taking a once mighty club on a one way ticket to palookaville.
So don’t let anyone tell us that sacking someone can’t actually be a positive thing. Our club needs an enema, as it is rotten on the inside!!! ‘So please bend over Aston Villa, this won’t hurt’. UTV
