Brian Laws' time as Wednesday boss has come to an unfortunate end, but Owls fans can have plenty of good memories to keep following his three-year stint at Hillsborough.
Some good league finishes, fine football, and the Steel City double - which brought years of bragging rights in the red and white side of Sheffield to an end - were amongst his best achievements in the Wednesday hot seat.
His shelf life at S6 came to a slow end, with a large percentage of Wednesdayites calling for him to leave following the current bad run of results, but the majority seem to be thankful to Laws for his time at the club - and rightly so.
He arrived looking to take the club that next step forward, after Paul Sturrock had achieved promotion from League 1, and consolidated, before coming up against problems of his own and getting the sack.
And Laws did just that in his first season in charge - helping turn round the fortunes of the club, with a little help from Sean McAuley, and bringing us within just a few points from a play-off appearance.
The Owls' form stumbled somewhat the season after, especially with expectations on Laws' shoulders, but he recovered last season to help Wednesday to a sound mid-table finish in 12th, and raise expectations once again this term.
He had to deal with the sale of key men, forced, such as Chris Brunt, Madjid Bougherra and Glenn Whelan,but still built a team that could challenge with the best in the Championship in 2008-09, and completed a famous double of the Blades in the process.
That famous double will live long in the memory for Wednesdayites, indeed, Laws had a good record in Steel City derby matches, and always had the Owls up for that big occasison.
The wheels fell off this season - inconsistency was one of Laws' problems while at the club - and who knows whether he'd have turned it around or not?
Vital wants to thank Brian for his time as Wednesday boss though, and wish him all the best at his future clubs, apart from against the Owls, of course.
