    Dis-appointed Managers 2019-20

    Lee Bowyer has quit Charlton.

    This must be a real gut-punch for Addicks fans. Talk about a buzzkill.

    Charlton unable to reach an agreement with Lee Bowyer on contract extension

    Oooooh, it's Eddie McCreadie all over again.

    Did Charlton refuse him a "company car"?

      Is that really Charlton's official statement? It's hilarious. I particularly like this bit:

      That the average Championship club makes a loss of around £15 million per year is not something players should care about. The owners are crazy.

        He didn't dump us. We dumped him.

          Good riddance. I can go back to not minding Charlton

            I would imagine that the right-thinking Charlton fans would be well fucking happy at this point.

              Bowyer's a turd (or he was when he was a player, and before) but he's done a job with Charlton, who've suffered one of the most dysfunctional front offices in the 92 for several years. If I was a fan (where's Matt when you need him,) I'd be well bummed out. If they weren't already a favourite for relegation they sure are now.

                      Sacked it seems. It's bit of an odd one. Take away the points deduction and he'd have had them close to a playoff place. Given that he was picking up the pieces after a bad dose of Redknapp you wonder what the issue with him was.

                        Supposedly he and the board did not agree on the direction of the club for next season with regard to player recruitment according to this.

                          Yeah. I saw that, but it seems somewhat vague or boilerplate. There are no specifics, but I guess that's the way of the footballing world these days.

                            I have an aversion to Monk based on fuck all really. But his fizzog gives me the same vibe as that chancer Sherwood.

                                You don't get the sideline Freddie Mercury impressions with Monk, which is a huge relief.

                                    Maybe not entirely unexpected given the time off he has had recently.

                                      He learnt that from Laudrup at Swansea.

                                        Sort of on-topic, but Roy Keane has left his position as assistant coach at Forest saying he wants to pursue his own managerial career.

                                        Be afraid, be very afraid.

                                          When the revelations about Keane's rows with Harry Arter and other members of the Ireland squad broke last year, a writer called Paul Howard tweeted "With every year that passes, Mick McCarthy's position on Saipan becomes 5% more understandable." I thought that was very good and it's now the first thing that comes to mind whenever I read about Keano.

                                              Even Ashley wouldn't appoint an ex-Sunderland manager. Would he?
