Grant Out as Managers Become an Endangered Species

At STT, we like to think that we played a part in his departure, offering cries of 'boo' and 'Grant out' on Monday night. Now the rubber faced chap is back on civvy street.

Claiming that 'the balls didn't bounce the right way for him', Canaries fans would question whether he had any balls to bounce in the first place.

The list of Managers recently binned is growing, with big clubs such as Palace, Chelsea and er.... Millwall giving their gaffers the heave-ho. STT predicts that the next big manager to get the chop will be everyone's pre-season favourite - the wholly inoffensive Chris Hutchings of Wigan semi-fame. He's a nice chap with a fair amount of experience, but they face a tough run of 6 games including trips to both North London teams, while they entertain Pompey and Chelsea at home. He also inspires very little confidence in front of the cameras or on the sideline and may have lost control of his players, as they went mental over Kevin Kilbane's second yellow at Newcastle last month. The upshot of this was a £20,000 fine. Ouchies.
