Scott Parker sacked then in the words of Jim Spence “Jack Ross has left the building…what a mess”

Both managers who lost 9-0 at the weekend have this morning lost their jobs. First to go was Scott Barker who got Bournemouth promoted from the Championship last season but was given just four games in the top flight, which included away matches against both Manchester City and Liverpool, before discovering how far loyalty takes you in the money-bags English Premier League.

His side’s 9-0 hammering at Anfield was the catalyst for his sacking this morning and shortly afterwards at the other end of Britain, Jack Ross was being relieved of his duties at Tannadice after suffering his own 9-0 thrashing as Dundee United where blown away by a rampant Celtic side on Sunday afternoon.

    What a mess right enough. Jack Ross.and the other 2managers get the boot ,there is very little help from the boardroom today .all it takes is a bad result ,to get the sack.
    Or maybe the so called pundits that still follow the one team all the way to the grave,having played for them
    They think that the football team they played for hold them in great esteem for what they did while playing for team mentioned.
    It’s cutthroat, and not very well manage the only people who make money are the boards and they can hire or sack whenever they like
