Craig Shakespeare on his way out. Good. Seemed to take the credit for the League triumph and dismiss Ranieri early, like many of the players. But where were they before him and where are they without him?

To be fair to Shakespeare - it seems it was the players that forced Ranieri out and wanted Shakespeare in charge. You reap what you sow!

Odd....thought they played OK last night to be fair, lacked a bit up front and Mahrez missed a sitter but i thought they looked OK. Wonder who they've got their eye on.....

Got to feel sorry for the people who bought the Shakespeare/Pulis half-and-half scarves last night. In less than 24 hours that scarf is now as outdated as it is awful.

Shakespear's a snidey potato headed ****. Couldn't wait to jump in Ranieri's grave, which he probably helped dig in what is referred to in football as the "Sherwood manoeuvre".

I wonder if they Thai owners thought to themselves...

"To sack or not to sack"

:D

Glad to see him gone.

Seems like Allardyce is the favourite to replace him. Don't see them promotion the assistant to take over.

Really hope they don't get Sam thou.... He did save Sunderland and Palace recently. I don't mind seeing them reglagated this season. Heehee!

Missing the transfer season by fourteen seconds has probably cost him his job. Not only are they a player short, but the owners are paying wages to a player they can't use. It's easy to see why they've lost confidence in him with the team sliding down the League.

Seems the no.1 target now is Dyche.

A decent pay day for him if he chooses to move. Burnley are doing well so far this season... But £2M a year is kinda hard to turn down. That would atleast triple what he is getting now.

Hes also been mentioned for the Everton and Arsenal job though so he may wait it out.

Which also makes me think Everton might now make a move on the manager front if they think Leicester might get in first.

Dyche is one of the favourites for the Everton job if Koeman leaves so it will be interesting to see if he holds on for that, or if he takes the Leicester job.

He’d be daft to go to Leicester. The club is poisonous, and he’s not going to do any better with them than Burnley (who are also a bigger club imo)

Sure they’d pay him well, but it would be career suicide.
