    I see Danny Cowley’s reward for keeping the Terriers up is his P45.

    And now it’s rumoured that Nigel Pearson may become the third Watford boss to get fired this season.

    Are all managers on a hiding to nothing these days or does it all make perfect sense?

    Cowleys? I suspect they were sacked for wanting more transfer cash

    Does anything shock us anymore regarding sackings in football these days?, two barmy decisions IMO. No chance of EP sacking Wilcox though, I could live with that decision.

    Hopefully one of these managers will take a chance on the Iron, with a contracts that doesn’t include a payoff of they are useless.

    On the face of it, it looks like we will be stuck with Wilcox 👎

    I would say if you sack a manager within the first one-two years, that’s generally the fault of the person hiring that manager.

    Both managers did what they were appointed to do, namely get the clubs out of the relegation places. So why get shot before the season ends?

    Just don’t see the logic in it. I can’t imagine Crowley was on the same money as Wagner, or Pearson on as much as Gracia/Flores so I doubt if it is cost-cutting.

    Over zealous owners?

    As I have said before it is irrelevant who we have as Manager, it will always be the same defensive, negative, boring football under the current regime, it cannot be a coincidence what has happened under EVERY Manager we have had in recent memory.

    All managerial appointments are gambles.

    Especially if appointed by a casino owner!

    I don’t think that’s fair, if you recruit properly, by advertising the position, interviewing a broad range of candidates and having a clear idea of what you want from them and what you’re going to do to help them achieve that.

    Delighted to see Watford drop into the bottom three. Hope they stay there!
