MR to manage both clubs?
Garry Monk: Birmingham City sack manager after 15 months at club
If Robins was poached, he would be a good choice imho, given SISU's abysmal record in choosing managers (1 1/2 good ones - Robins plus a bit of Mowbray)
Another bizarre decision from Blues unless Monk pushed for it.
There had been talk earlier this month that ex-Middlesbrough, Swansea and Leeds boss Monk, 40, would resign over the exit of Jota to rivals Aston Villa.
Feel sorry for their support.
Twice they've binned a decent manager in recent times.
Just when it looks like they're getting somewhere. At least they can look at heir new tennents and think it could be worse.
My Blues supporting friend at work loved Gary Monk. He felt he might leave, not be sacked. He was saying that if Monk did leave he hoped they would take Hughton back again.
All the Blues fans at work also saying Hughton is the man, also said Monk will probably go to Derby if Lampard leaves.
Awful decision and must be something more to this than performance as he kept them up despite the deductions. Some ST holders demanding a refund!
This sounds likely
Apparently Monk went mental when Jotta was sold to Villa.
Do they still make that ?
I may be a cynic but could Monk's sacking have anything to do with the story today that Lee Bowyer is on the verge of leaving Charlton who he guided back to the Championship last month
Charlton's owner accuses Bowyer of greed because he's asked for a big increase on his contract
Bowyer used to play for Birmingham late in his career
Think he signed an extension in the end
You're right Nick
This morning's Times said the club had exposed his contract demands and that he was on the verge of leaving
I hadn't seen the updates online today saying they've done a bizarre u turn and he's signed for another year
Charlton are a crazy club
Two basket case clubs sharing a ground , that's got to be a first !
Didn’t we share with wasps for a while?
Depends on your definition of “share”
Stockdale will be over the moon that Monk has gone.
Stockdale turned up for pre season today resembling Tyson Fury's body shape at his lowest point
I think it's a thyroid disorder. Shame as he is a top keeper
Monk one of the favourites for the Newcastle job.
Steve Bruce heavily linked now.
With Ashleys lack of spending not sure his agent mate will appreciate that move ! Decent manager but never appears to be kept around for long
Is Monk not currently under investigation by 2 former clubs, Blues being 1 of them?
What's that supposed to be over?
Edit: Just googled it, looks a bit suspect.
Some financial skullduggery.
I havent seen it in the media, but a Villa fan at work told me, something to do with some dodgy transfers.
Could be bollocks.
Thats what’s being investigated (hence my comment about his mate !). One of the transfers (Ashley fletcher) is an interesting one
Links to an agent, inflated transfer fees where it is alleged that the agent got a decent slice. Monk might have been on it.
I've never earned the sort of money football managers do so maybe I don't know what I'm on about but when you're earning a minimum of 10-15 grand a week and have had a couple of big pay offs why would you jeopardise your place on the managerial merry go round if indeed Monk has.
Could be totally unsubstantiated.
tbf I always wonder that with all manner of jobs, no matter how well or badly you're paid.
People tend to be found out in the end!
Candidate to become King of the Jungle one day then.
