Pot calls kettle black

Pot calls kettle black

A number of Championship managers have lost their jobs in recent weeks and that has been the topic of discussion amoung football league chairman this week. Sir John Madejksi has had his say and told the Official Site,


'I really think this merry-go-round of managers in ridiculous, people need time. If a manager is not getting it right, why not talk about it and find out why?'


Now I am not disagreeing with what he is saying, it is spot on, however just over a year ago he sacked Brendan Rodgers after giving him less than 6 months in the hot seat. I would be interested to see what Rodgers thinks of these comments.


On the same topic it amazed me to read that Brian McDermott is currently the 10th longest serving manager of the 24 in the Championship. Quite something considering this time last season he was still our caretaker manager!
