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!

You are going to have to do better than that utb, that was weak. )
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.

Not bad

Shocking decision.
Hope LCFC go down after this.
The biggest Cinderella story of all time and 9 weeks later he is gone.

The bottom line here is that the players always win a power struggle .

How much will he get paid off for I wonder?
Martinez pocketed £10M when Everton sacked him and within months he had a new job as manager of Belgium.

“Yesterday, my dream died” – full text of Claudio Ranieri statement
Claudio Ranieri
 
Yesterday, my dream died. After the euphoria of last season and being crowned Premier League Champions all I dreamt of was staying with Leicester City, the club I love, for always. Sadly this was not to be.

I wish to thank my wife Rosanna and all my family for their never ending support during my time at Leicester. My thanks go to Paolo and Andrea who accompanied me on this wonderful journey. To Steve Kutner and Franco Granello for bringing me the opportunity to become a champion.
Mostly I have to thank Leicester City football club. The adventure was amazing and will live with me forever. Thank you to all the journalists and the media who came with us and enjoyed reporting on the greatest story in football. My heartfelt thanks to everybody at the club, all the players, the staff, everybody who was there and was part of what we achieved.
But mostly to the supporters. You took me into your hearts from day one and loved me. I love you too. No one can ever take away what we together have achieved, and I hope you think about it and smile every day the way I always will. It was a time of wonderfulness and happiness that I will never forget. It’s been a pleasure and an honour to be a champion with all of you.

I think the club has saved Ranieri's legacy, whether they meant to or not is another thing. In time he will be remembered for winning the PL solely, not relegation if it happens or CL failure if it happens. If they survive or do well in the CL, he will be seen as being hard done by and his legacy will be untarnished.

He'll be remembered at Leicester like Clough is at Forest and Derby . This season doesn't matter.

As long as the fans keep buying the tickets & merchandise. As long as the fans keep supporting the club sponsors and as long as the fans keep paying for Sky Sports. Then the clubs will treat managers as a business risk. No manager is safe on the money spinning gravy train that is the Premier League even if they did win it last season.
