pearce.jpgDoes the Monday craziness never end? First Paul Jewell keeps WIgan up but then he resigns. Now Man City, who finished four points above the relegation zone, have sacked Stuart Pearce! Pyscho hasn’t proved he can cut it as a manager at the highest level and I think it would do him good to get some experience at League One or Championship level.
So what does this mean for out-of-work managers like Chris Coleman and the mighty Sven? It means their agents will be straight on the phone to Man City, that’s what.
In other news, assistant boss Chris Hutchings has been appointed as Jewell’s successor. Not exactly a high-profile name to excite Wigan’s fans, but probably a prudent choice, as Gordon Brown would say.

    Iain Dowie isn’t out of work, he’s Coventry’s manager. Keep up Pies!

    Oops, of course. Bad Pies.

    You’ll probably be able to insert Neil Warnock’s name instead if you wait a few days

    Seems to me like you need a resident Coventry City fan on board to cut out such errors. ;)

    That photo of Stuart Pearce in this article is a candidate for one of your Horror Hairs.

    You know who should be the new city manager? That Chinese guy from ‘South Park’… ‘I Do Rearry Good-a Job at Manchester Shitty’-Racist? A bit. Funny? It would be.
