Les Reed & Sanchez take over from sacked Coleman
I was out drinking last night and was on the end of something very strange texts. Something about Chris Coleman getting the sack - yeh, go on pour me another, and Man Utd winning 7-1 and that wasn't the arrest count even (that was 14-7
Now I know our boardroom has witnessed some moments of madness this season but honestly sacking Chris Coleman with 5 games left leaves me shocked. Coleman has proven himself as a quality motivator, clever tactician and good operator in the transfer market (£5m for Boa Morte anyone?), all without any of the cash that his predecessor Jean Tigana had to spunk away. Football is a cruel game and Addicks are left wondering which way this change will effect Fulham's players and their fans, although patently Coleman may go down as another one of those managers treasured by supporters of other clubs but not his own.
Northern Ireland maanger Lawrie Sanchez has quickly been appointed with, wait for it Les Reed as his assistant
. Reed has worked previously in the Northern Irish set-up with Sanchez. All this adds further to the thrills, spills and nerves of the relegation battle. There was never this much excitement when we used to lose our last 10 games and finish 12th was there?
