Which if the case goes to show that patience in a manager is required.

Yup, like Fergie, Mourinho could have got better results given more time?

I've been saying as much for years. I'm surprised at Man Utd for becoming short sighted like the majority of clubs. However, in Mourinho's case there's a pattern to how he operates, he starts well then falls out with the players and makes his position untenable in interviews. It's easier to stick with someone if they're not being a complete arse all the time.

Bruce takes over Sheff Wed after Luhukay was sacked before Christmas. They've had a real upturn in form over the festive period too.

Lambert doing well with Ipswich...

:lol: Just been reading his post match comments on the BBC, it seems in his world they've been outplaying all-comers since he got there, best team in the division by a mile. Which has translated to one win and seven defeats in 11 games in the real world. What a complete twat. :lol:

Rowett sacked at Stoke, that really is any of the remaining good will towards him as seemingly a promising young manager down the drain. He hasn't been great since the good work he did at Birmingham.

It's pretty hard to judge. As we should know as well as any team, it's not an easy job working with a recently relegated team from the PL.

I like Rowett. I’m surprised at this.

He's been replaced by Nathan Jones from Luton.

I am kind of surprised at this appointment. Yesterday Stoke were rumoured to be after ex Fulham manager Slavisa Jokanovic but he is unavailable which was something to do with this compensation agreement with Fulham. Nathan Jones gained promotion with Luton last season from League two and has carried on the success in league one. You can argue he has earned a chance of managing at a higher level but its a mighty big jump from League One to trying to bring Premier league football back to Stoke City. He wont get much time either as i would expect the expectation to be challenging for a play off place this season. I hate to make comparisons but Paul Hurst did a great job at Shrewsbury last season and moved on to Ipswich last summer. That ended in disaster for him. One wishes Nathan Jones all the best but you cant help thinking Stoke would have been better sticking with Gary Rowett and Nathan Jones seeing out the season at Luton.
