Reports Link Irvine With Sack

Reports Link Irvine With Sack

Reports are emerging that Wednesday boss Alan Irvine is set for the sack today.

The Mirror is reporting that Irvine has said his goodbyes to his playing squad and staff and the Scot is expected to be sacked by chairman Milan Mandaric today.

Irvine could only watch on as Wednesday failed to beat nine-man Yeovil Town at Hillsborough last night in a match which finished 2-2.

The pressure has been on the 52-year-old former Preston boss since Mandaric took over the club in December.

And he's so far failed to deliver, with the Owls dropping down the league table at an alarming rate, despite Irvine being backed in the transfer window.

As ever, we'll keep you up-to-date with this story right here on Vital Wednesday.

I agree I think its time to go now. We have a strong squad on paper but it just isnt working and we need a change. Not sure I agree with keegan as a replacement though. I hear that Andy Grey is looking for a new job now ;-) lol.

A mate of mine whos dad is a camera man for wednesday spoke to rob kelly after the match yesterday who apparently said he doesnt expect himself and AI to be in charge come the weekend

If it happens then I'd like to say thanks Alan (genuine nice guy) but it needs to be done because I think he's starting to feel the pressure and his brand of football is not entertaining in the slightest. I'd rather lose matches playing great football than the way we are doing! These are changing times at Hillsborough and unfortunately I think Alan is the next link in the chain that needs strengthening!

cant believe anything until its made offical by the club

I hope Irvine doesn't go, shame people can't just find something else to talk and moan about instead and get on with supporting the guy, get behind him and his new players for the next month or so and see what happens, as normal Wednesday fans never give a Manager chacne and think changing things is the answer, has the past 13 years not proven that way to be the wrong to act!!!

Hills Owl - Do you seriously believe Irvine is the man????

He is no Mourinho, but i dont think change everytime some thing doesnt quiet go our way is the answer all the time, to many times teams sack managers far to early, its proven the best managers have been given time at a club through good times and bad times!!

Hills-Owl, i do understand what you are saying pal, but he's had a year now and we seem to be going backwards. Im not one for sacking managers but i just cant see him working. he only had a couple of years experience as a number 1 and think it shows. He just looks too stressed out, probably be best for his health as well if he leaves.
