Football Management in the modern game.

I think this is a disgrace and speaks volumes of the lack of character in todays game, I would vote option number 1.

Soccer is so unlike the GAA and its manager loyalty.  Take Armagh for instance.  They are a comedy show for years under McGeeny and Armagh fans are happy to be the laughing stock of the country and stick with their man as he guides them to Div 4!

I'm surprised he wasn't sacked earlier.

The difference between staying up and going down, in financial terms, always means that these sort of decisions are quite easy to make. At the start of January I wouldn't have given Hull or Swansea a chance of staying up with their current managers. I'm not saying it's necessarily the manager's fault but it seems, for whatever reason, that a change of manger gives such teams a lift and it was inevitable that these clubs would act. It hasn't happened at Palace yet and it'll be interesting to see how that goes.

I'd expect Moyes to go at Sunderland soon too, although it might cost them a fortune to pay him off.

Earlier this month, Leicester released a statement offering their ‘unwavering support’ for Ranieri.

RECENT STATEMENT

It read, via the Mail: “In light of recent speculation Leicester City Football Club would like to make absolutely clear its unwavering support for its first team manager Claudio Ranieri.

“While there is a collective appreciation from everyone at the club that recent form needs to improve, the unprecedented success achieved in recent seasons has been based firmly on stability, togetherness and determination to overcome even the greatest of challenges.

I hope they go down, karma and all that the b**tards, the mans name will be sung from the stands a hundred years from now, long after the owners are gone!
Armagh, the one true love of a mans life.

Craig Shakespeare is the caretaker boss for Liverpool match.
It's certainly a comedy of errors at Leicester, as they like it.

Correct me if I'm wrong but the last 5 winning managers haven't been there 12 months later
Mancini 2012
Ferguson 2013
Pellegrini 2014
Jose 2015
Ranieiri 2016

I think Alex was right - win it then go

Incredible behaviour by Leicester. They should have been loyal to their man for at least the whole season, regardless if it meant relegation or not. Reflects terribly on them.

Lost the dressing room apparently. Poor man must be doting. It's a kindness really.

Football is a business, first and foremost. There were no signs whatsoever that Leicester under Ranieri were capable of turning it around. Even last night, while they got a decent enough result, Sevilla should have hammered them given the respective performances. I don't think Ranieri will or should have any complaints. He's around long enough to know the score.

And yet you defend Klopp's gross incompetence. Staggering hypocrisy.

Arsenal fans on here would give anything to be in Leicester's position.
