      Apparently the Americans who bought them out have languished more debt on them than they had before.

      Knee jerk reaction, Burnley sacking Dyc#e, Everton may well survive, at Burnley's expense, a real pity !

      Scott Parker sacked by Bournemouth. Harsh IMO.

      Yep.  Beat Villa and then lost to 3 of the big guns . Spent 24m not sure what owners expectations where. Smells of they never trusted him but couldn't sack him after winning league and had this in mind all along

      Very harsh that.

      Tough fixtures and they’ve barely strengthened since last season.

      I don't think he will be next but I don't think he finishes the season with Villa to be honest. Villa have done well at times since he took over but on the whole I think they've been very underwhelming, especially when you consider that he's been backed in the transfer market. Whoever sanctioned the deal for Digne needs sacking, he's been a disaster.

      I don't think Courtinho was a great addition to the squad, he's extremely lightweight these days in terms of contribution. They'll have to drop a few more points before thinking of dismissing SG...I suspect he's got a cast iron contract with plenty £

      Parker should have been sacked for his fashion sense alone but he spoke out of turn and it back fired on him.

      I’m really surprised as well, all though I don’t rate Scottish football at a high standard he came across well at Rangers and didn’t do to bad there. Rangers would probably argue that still wasn’t enough for a big Scottish club.

      Like you’ve said he’s been very well backed in transfer market and when you loot at the squad it’s actually not bad at all. Not saying for a second they could reach top 6 but on paper possibly mid table.

      With Arsenal and City up next and looking doubtful to get anything from thiese two games I can see it happening. Once Villa fans turn the there’s really no turning back and it’s getting close.

      Yeah a lot of people said early on Coutinho wasn't going to be any different to how he's been since he left us, he started well for the first few games there but other than that he's been average at best.


      Parker should have been sacked for his fashion sense alone but he spoke out of turn and it back fired on him.

      I've seen some of his interviews, his players must've been dead on morale because he was effectively saying on mulitple occassions that his team isn't good enough. For some reason he holds himself and his managerial ability in a much higher esteem than what is actually the reality.

      I don't think it's especially hubristic...just an honest assessment of the squad he had...It's a big step up to the Premier league, and as we witnessed first hand they are garbage.

      Some things just don't need saying and to be repeating it everytime he does an interview is the wrong way to go about it.

      I don't think it is harsh. His comments were out of turn and disrespectful to the squad and he deserved to go on that basis.

      You don't all of a sudden, even after losing heavily to three of the best teams in England, turn on your squad in that fashion, especially when that team got promoted last season.

      A better route for him would have been to say "We've played three of the best teams in the league and while Liverpool are clearly the cream of the crop and beat the living sh*t out of us, it will take us some time to find our feet and we'll do that against some of the weaker teams. And also, I'm going to stop wearing this sweater that looks like it's inside out, that should help as well".

       He obviously felt quite different to you and decided to go public...I could't in all honesty give a flying F about him or the situation he finds himself in.

      Losing 9-0 would put a lot of managers under pressure but his comments after the game did him no favours. Basically accepting you're going to have a sh*t season. I remember when Leicester meted out the same punishment to Southampton. Hassenhutl took the heat, sucked it up and they went on a bit of a run.

      It’s not how I feel, I couldn’t care less, he’s not our manager. All I’m saying is he probably took the wrong approach and the Bournemouth fans I know have all said the same.

      Yup, it seems more and more likely it'll be the final season (games?) at Leicester for BR.
