Yep just sden on the BBC Dave -

Very odd, Final to come. Player power again.
Not player power, he has become a poor manager. Too negative in many games and far from having a reliable defence to facilitate that approach he has endlessly tinkered with his backline. And he has publicly called out his players, like at United, blaming them when he has often not put them in position to succeed.

Social media is divided on him and his tactics / behaviour to players as will be opinion on here.
I don't like the man but it's a very odd timing to get shut.
More to come , 48 hour news mayhem.

He is working his way around the "big 6" Super League clubs. 3 down, 3 to go. Arsenal have yet to qualify for Europe by a conventional route this season but might win the Europa League and Liverpool have been very poor compared with the last couple of seasons ?

He was a breath of fresh air when he landed on these shores back in 2004 and put a stop to the constant sniping between Wenger and Ferguson by winning the EPL at the first attempt. There is however something seriously wrong when one of the most successful managers in Europe in modern times ends up getting sacked wherever he turns up. He must have made tens of millions in pay offs!

Lots of fuss made when he was appointed but TBH I don't know any spurs fans who were initially thrilled with his appointment.

I've seen rumoured elsewhere (with absolutely no corroboration) that he refused to take training because of the Super League shenanigans and lost the resulting brinkmanship.

The story about Mourinho objecting to the super league stuff seems to have originated with a parody account on Twitter. However there's some legitimate interest in how Klopp intends to square his on-the-record criticism of the idea a couple of years ago with Liverpool getting involved.

Whatever the story behind his sacking, if Spurs were to fire Mourinho they could have hardly picked a better day. Creating another big story other than the Super League stuff.

As expected, John Sheridan has left Wigan to take over at Swindon.

A move greeted warmly in Lancashire, maybe less so in Wilts!
Wigan Athletic have appointed caretaker boss Leam Richardson as manager on a three-year deal.

The 41-year-old took over after John Sheridan left for Swindon in November and has guided the club out of the League One relegation zone.

Keith Hill sacked by Tranmere.
I had to go and double check the league table, as felt sure Tranmere had made the play offs. Yes they have. Sacked before the semi-final.

Well, Forest Green tried that by sacking Adrian Pennock in 2016, just before the play-offs.
Grimsby won the play offs

...this season, Forest Green sacked Cooper with a few matches to go and the team in a play-off position - they scraped into the play-off position on the final day.
