Laws Leaves Wednesday

Laws Leaves Wednesday

Sheffield Wednesday have this morning announced that Brian Laws has departed the club by mutual consent.

The announcement comes following a winless run of eight games, and yesterday's pitiful performance at Leicester was the final nail in Laws' coffin.

Assistant Russ Wilcox and coach John Dungworth also leave the club.

Wednesday chairman Lee Strafford made the announcement on the Official Website this morning.

Sean McAuley will take charge of first-team affairs, as Wednesday begin their search for a new manager immediately.

There are already a few contenders for the job. Nigel Worthington is stalling on contract talks with Northern Ireland, could the former Owl return home?

Darren Ferguson and George Burley are both out of work.

Chris Waddle always states his interest in the job too.

This decision will have a huge bearing on the future of our club, and the right man needs to be appointed to halt the Owls' slide, and to take us forward.

Who would you like to see as the new manager?

No surprise. I feel sorry for the bloke as he is a nice fella but he had run out of ideas and had to go.

Let's give MacAuley a chance as the caretaker and not rush into a contract that will tie the clubs hands. Merry Christmas Olly and Wednesdayites everywhere. Time to change that poll Vital.
