Was that actually Shakespeare's fault? If not then his bosses basically ripped the heart out of his midfield and then failed to replace it...which makes it incredibly harsh to then sack him. As others have said though he probably deserves it after knifing poor old Claudio in the back. Dyche would be a great appointment for them, but if he's sensible he'll wait for the Everton job. Coleman? He was an awful club manager and has survived on Bales' coat-tails quite a bit with Wales. I think that would be a poor appointment. Allardyce? I thought he 'retired'? Why is he now hawking himself about for other jobs? The one I'd love to see is Ancelotti. Milan aside (where he did very well) he's one of the managers who I think is a good manager of brilliant players, but I'd love to see what he could do with a more limited squad.
