You've basically swapped managers.
you beat me to it!
I was just about to make the thread.
But you should be making it, you are mr.football after all...
Olley for Megson I think I would cry.
getting rid of Dowie. Its just nonsensical. They'll get relegated now.
And neither should have Dowie.
He's one of those managers who seems to get tagged as one the 'New Breed' of English managers, but apart from one, admittedly incredible season at Palace, hasn't done much. He's spent more money this season at Charlton than Curbishly ever did, yet made the squad considerably worse.
They're going down methinks.
and he also did a very good job at Oldham.
Charlton did the right thing in my mind, things were not improving under Reed. He strikes me as one of those people who are great coaches but not good managers.
I still think Charlton will go down, but if they do then they should hang on to Pardew.
in the footballing sense.
Appointing Reed was very silly, if it's true Dowie had lost the dressing room appointing such an uncharismatic coach from within hardly seems the best way to gee everyone up.
reed was just about the least convincing premiership manager ever. I think Pardew's a good appointment but it's probably come too late to save Charlton.
Steve Wigley takes that honour as Saints boss a couple of years ago.
How good was MOTD yesterday? What with every team playing and stuff. Can't wait until tomorrow.
