Owls Part With Boss Alan Irvine

Owls Part With Boss Alan Irvine

Alan Irvine is understood to have left Wednesday following a meeting with chairman Milan Mandaric last night, according to reports this morning.

Irvine's job has been hanging by a thread in recent weeks following a number of poor performances which have left the Owls adrift of the npower League One play-off places.

And Mandaric, who bought the club in December, is understood to have called time on his reign as Wednesday boss.

The 5-3 loss at Peterborough United in midweek seems to be the straw that broke the camel's back.

The club have yet to confirm Irvine's departure but official confirmation is expected this morning.

More to follow.

At the end of the day football is about results and we are just not getting them - end of! I was never an 'Irvine hater' but agreed that change needed to be made to bring fresh impetus and a possible push for the play-offs!

Thank christ for that. Nice fella and hard worker but just a job too big. It's king kev for me all the way. He plays all out attacking football, players will want to come and play for him and will put plenty of bums back on seats. I know he has a reputation as a quitter but even if he only stays a couple of years, he will leave us a top half championship team at minimum.

Why is the club so slow at getting confirmations out? Hope it's not a repeat of Monday and the Cook deal!

Hopefully MM will have someone in by early next week, I think Chris Hughton is realistic and a good option

Megson is early 3-1 favourite, i would be mortified if this happened. no,no,no,no,no. tactics would be no different to irvines, i just hope gary neville's sudden retirement has nothing to do with this, he always said he wanted to go into coaching and managment.
