Just sacked at Huddersfield after keeping them up...unbelievable.
There will be a queue for their services.
Football never ceases to amaze me.

Was always going to reach a level where their style doesn't work.

Have always thought they were one trick ponies (but probably most managers are to be fair) and whilst it was very effective at National League and L2 level things did rather level out for them in L1 and I was surprised a Championship club took a gamble on them.

Looks like they have survived the drop but not the chop ??!!

Probably see them at Mansfield next ............. :lol:

Football never fails to amaze me. Brought in September 2019 . Through sheer determination, have guided Huddersfield to safety, including a win recently against WBA, who more than likely will be promoted to the Premiership. Thanks for your efforts but have the sack. Utterly bizarre. Wonder whether Hull will employ them after there relegation to League 1.

similarly agree with you and bill shankly .

I wish i had the time to go onto their forum and see if the reasons are a bit clearer .

seems very odd -you know what you are getting with them-so can't be the style - (and it works ,and i like the 'style' myself ).

as you say-kept them up in first season and with have 'learned their trade' in a division which they would not have been familiar with in readiness for next season .

as you say-seems bizarre -there must be more to it surely ?

has one of them run over the chairpersons cat or similar -intriguing-wish i had time to find out ?

will reece brown get a 'fresh start/opportunity 'under a new manager ?

I thought sacking the Cowleys was bizarre at best but Nigel Pearson's termination with 2 games to go was beyond all reason when they still need a point .....knowing football they will get a win at City.

If MC does not get anew contract in 20/21 there will be some seriously good track record managers out there ...Cowleys, Johnson,Pullis Allardyce etc

Maybe Guardiola is on the brink after failure in the league and FA Cup.....lol ,
He can still save his job with a champions League win......
Mind you his pass pass football might get a bit tedious......

They will all be queuing up for a stress free life in rural Gloucestershire...should DV make a change after this year.

Agreed. It’s crazy. Pearson were brought in to avoid relegation and, having almost done that, they are sacked. I don’t get it.

I never liked the Cowley’s and maybe club have realised that their style and attitude is too ugly for their fans to stomach next season. Still they have been treated too harshly it seems to me

Both the Cowleys could go back to teaching PE.

About FGR

We’re a club that looks to the future, but our identity is forged from a rich 128-year history. Founded in 1889, we’re one of the oldest football clubs in the world.

In 2017, we were promoted to the Football League for the first time in our history – which means we can spread our sustainability message to an even bigger audience. FIFA recently described us as the greenest football club in the world. That’s quite an accolade, and it shows how we’ve been able to bring together football and environmental consciousness at the highest levels of the game.
