“Ta-ra you shitters”

Huddersfield Town have announced this morning that the club have parted company with manager Mark Robins after just one game of the new Championship season.

The Terriers lost 4-0 at home to Bournemouth on the opening day of the 2014/15 season, with Robins branding the result a “disgrace” after the game having been jeered by fans throughout.

Robins managed to keep Huddersfield in the Championship after taking over for the latter half of the 2012/13 season and then guided them to a safe 17th-place finish the season after.

However, Huddersfield’s 2013/14 campaign ended with the team picking up just two wins in their final 13 league fixtures, with a heavy defeat at Bournemouth to begin 2014/15 obviously proving to be the breaking point as far as Robins’ tenure was concerned.

A short statement on the club’s official website read: “Mark and the directors all agreed it would be in the interests of all parties to part company.”

Congrats to whoever had “90 minutes” in the managerial sack race sweepstake.
