Appleton - Sacked By Letter

According to reports, Appleton was sacked by letter yesterday, and he found out on TV before he found out himself. This is an utter disgrace. They don't even have the decency to tell him face to face. They are cowardly. Venky's are spending so much money on paying off managers, that they will have nothing left soon. It seems as if Paul Agnew and Derek Shaw don't have anything to do witht the termination of Appleton's contract, but it is Shebby Singh, who has never met Appleton, or chose him to be the manager. Now Venky's need to look seriously at the boardroom, and either axe Shebby, or Paul and Derek. This is disgraceful what they are doing. Shebby doesn't seem to get along with Paul and Derek and it was his decision to hire Berg. He then looked at Tim Sherwood, captain of the side that won us the Premiership. Now it looks like Shebby was trying to bring in a manager who used to play for the club. This sounds good, but I would rather have an experienced manager than just someone who played for the club. We need someone who gets involved with the players and who will talk to the players individually. It has been said by a few players that Berg didn't talk to any of them. This is clearly not good enough, we need someone like Billy Davies, who was available when we had sacked Berg, he goes deep into detail about his players. Here is a video of what he does on a day to day basis at Forest. We need someone like this to come to the club. A few managers off the top of my head who should be considered (however they probably wouldn't want to come to a club in this state):
  • Nigel Adkins
  • Owen Coyle
  • Paolo Di Canio
  • Phil Brown
  • Brian Mcdermott
  • Alex McLeish
  • Mark Hughes 
These men would probably do good jos, or at least try, they should be considered by whoever chooses the manager. Thank you for reading, see you next time.

  1. Followed your link from the BBC.

    I think what you have to say is interesting but I can't be sure, because walls of text in white-on-black does not make it comfortable to read for longer than a few seconds.

    It might be worthwhile looking at the font and background colours again.

    1. Thanks for the comment pal, I have customised it a bit now but I may change the colour that the text is on and keep the text black. Thanks for the good feedback.
