A decent potential thread at risk of getting lost in the Phil Brown/Sunderland thread.

So I can definitely remember Bryan Robson getting sacked shortly after the sheer embarrassment of his West Brom side only drawing at home to us*

Billy McNeill definitely got the tin tack at Man City shortly before we played them in 1986. Certainly too late for there to have been any changes to the programme.

Andy T is sure there are plenty of others.

Fire away!




*relegation the previous year and a poor start to the season may also have been factors

Essex of course!
Any manager that gets a "vote of confidence" might as well start to empty his office!

I know we didn't do for Scolari, but we certainly helped him on his way.

Can we count Lee Clark the other day.

I'm sure when we beat Sunderland under Tilly that Niall Quinn was sacked straight after.

It's not the Tilly season, for the other sackings, just checked, but I am sure there was a season where this happened. My gut feeling it was when we were in the Championship at some point.

Just remember it became a bit of a kiss of death playing us.

The guy from Peterborough who then worked for us for a few weeks.
Wouldn't be surprised if Walsall lose theirs soon
