McClaren sacking is worst thing possible before Saturday.

They will have Rowett as manager by then.

The McClaren sacking has come back to haunt us, this is sending us to Division 1. They will have a top class Manager in this week, they are not giving the Assistant Chris Powell the job, all his backroom staff have gone.

Rowet getting the job will have no bearing on Saturday result he will not have had time to get his way of playing accross by then he's a manager not a magician
They'vehad ex England Manager twice ex real Madrid assistant, a manager who can get promotion and now they banking on a man whoes got very average players at brum to play above their station. good luck with that one sheep
All I'm concerned about is Cohen being fit and he picks right team and not playing out of position.

I feel like a jobsworth saying it but it needs to be said as the gravity of the situation is dire. we are not going to be relegated to Division 1 (the Premier League), we are going to be relegated to Division 3 (League One) - obviously there is still time for us to avoid relegation.
We are however (already) the only European club competition champions ever to be relegated to their domestic third tier already. so nothing new.

Huge game v the sheep on Sat. They are on as bad a run as we are with no manager now and must be low on confidence so let's hope we get right in among them. Why was Britt not on bench at least v Burton if fully fit, still our most natural finisher. He gets played up front on his own v Brentford, then gets dropped and Beret on, McCormack and Clough then start. If Britt had any of those players supporting him in previous games it may well have been a different story. We are in last chance saloon now so let's hope Gary gets team and tactics spot on.

Despite the solitary win in the last seven and the team playing like strangers I really hope Reds fans don't turn on Gary Brazil to a point were he won't want to go back to the NDA and carry on the great work there, that would be awful. He started with three wins out of four and many of us thought this might just work, I did.

Unfortunately it as gone pear shaped and now many of us wise after the event are saying we should have got an experienced manager in. In fairness to GB there was not a huge queue fighting to take over because of our current image and sack em on sight reputation with managers.

So unless Fawaz as got some great manager hidden away in the boot room who he intends to bring in this week to shaft the sheep there is no alternative but to get behind Brazil and Lester and the players and turn up the volume and get a massive win. It should not have got to this for sure but a big dose of positive realism might be the way forward, as the alternatives now are few and far between. COYR.

Sounds like Zola will be on the market, he's someone Fawaz admires!

Let's hope he doesn't admire Steve McLaren now Sheep have just sacked him.

It will be very interesting who the sheep go in for also norwich looking for new manager while the trickies don't appear to have any one lined up at the end of the season warburton rumours have gone quite and me thinks zola will join the dole queue any thoughts.
