    Rumours are Freedman's gone and Willow's taking over until the end of the season. Was an agent of a few big name Prem players a few years ago.

    He'll be a massive character in the championship..........if his appearance in a previous legends match is anything to go by :o

    Bit of an odd decision really. Never got why a club would sack a manager and then appoint someone from their backroom on a permanent or semi permanent basis. 6 managers sacked in about 3 years. Think we should add Al Hasawi to the list of unsatisfactory owners to the other thread. The fans have been getting more and more tired of him in the last year or so. I'd bet my bottom dollar things would be a lot different there if Doughty hadn't sadly passed away. Now he was a good owner and one of football's true gents.

    Rarely works. Eric Black was certainly the exception to the rule. Not many others.

    We never sacked McAllister, of course.

    Worked when we sacked Gould too. Mackay kept us up when we were gone.

    Appointing managers in football is a lottery and supports how poorly clubs are run.

    Yup, although I missed that out as we didn't sack him then.

    Not sure Nilsson would count as 'backroom' but sacking Strachan and appointing the backroom of him with Money worked well. It was bringing the outsider Smith in that did for us!

    Freedman, great example of someone thinking the grass is greener, leaves Palace for Bolton and its gone south since. Another one of these managers wins some games and suddenly is being given offers all over the place, so much talent in the lower leagues, give them a chance ffs.
