Sturrock Sacked

Sturrock Sacked

Owls chairman Dave Allen has revealed boss Paul Sturrock has parted company with the club after Wednesday fell to new lows in last night's 4-0 drubbing by Colchester United which left Wednesday fourth from bottom in the Championship.

Chairman Dave Allen told the official site: 'Our league position says it all. However, the chairman and directors would like to place on record our thanks to Paul for his efforts.

'No one will forget that wonderful day we had at Cardiff when we won the play-offs and subsequently got promoted to the Championship.

'Unfortunately, in spite of strengthening the squad this year, we have not made the desired progress and, to that end, we need a change in coaching staff.'

Wednesday will announce who is to take charge of the Owls' clash with QPR on Friday while the search for a new manager has already started.

Absolute disgrace, why give him a new three year deal only to sack him a few games later? Absolutely pathetic I thought the official site was having a laugh when I looked.

Had to happen. What choice did we have, he has his players back, and we look worse than ever. We don't have time to wait for him to turn it round, or we would go down. Nigel Pearson had a great record in his few games in charge at West Brom. Look at Croatia now, their management team is Billic, Boban, Prozensky & assanovic, we should get a management team like that of our great players, it would inspire our team to victory

How about Big Ron coming back for 12 months to mentor someone like Nigel Pearson. Worthington is not the sort of manager we need this time, he is another tinkerer. that was the idea when he came back second time, if you read his autobiography, he was sacked by Dave Richards on a Sunday night, and Nigel Pearson was due to join him on the Monday Morning.

Sturrock had to pay the penalty. They are his players, the team is supposedly back to full strength and we still get thrashed by a side who should be battling relegation themselves. I like Mr Sturrock but his perfomance just wasn't good enough. The side actually looks worse than last year not better.

I would go for Denis Wise personally. We need someone who is prepared to kick some ass in the dressing room. The players should be sued for earning money under false pretences.

Big Ron & Big Nige would be great team. If you read Paolo Di Canio's autobiography, it says that when Big Ron walked into the dressing room, everyone stopped and listened, when Danny Wilson came, nobody gave a toss what he had to say. If the dressing room has been lost by Sturrock, then maybe we need a big Ron to win it back. Another suggestion is to Have Big Ron with Lee Bullen. Bully knows the players, and is a leader, he would be a good chice, look at Liverpool in the 70's and 80's, they promoted from within,a nd it did them no hard did it ?
