THE DAILY SPORTS DEBATE: Do managers get enough time

Lancashire Telegraph: Andre Villas Boas Andre Villas Boas

Another day comes and yet more managers leave their football clubs.

It seems like the entrance to most clubs is a rapidly revolving door with name signs written in chalk.

And while it is hard to feel sorry for any manager who will walk away with a handsome pay off for doing a less than adequate job, the proof is there that the best bosses generally get time to build their club.

Do you think the game is going madder quicker with demands for instant success?

After his debacle at Chelsea I am surprised he got a second chance in the premiership. Some clubs never learn.

And the hundreds of millions he wasted in the transfer window. I wondered what Jerome Anderson and Shebby Singh had been doing lately.

Steve Clarke took West Brom to their highest ever finish. They beat Man U at home and were robbed of the win at Chelsea. Sacking him will simply cause even more turmoil and I hope they are relegated for their stupidity.

Because they had such a good season, I think expectations from fans, and maybe the board, rose to unrealistic levels. It's a bit like when we were mid table PL, and people expected top six, and were questioning the WT's ambition and lack of major transfer activity.

Fans of most clubs need a reality check, and need to accept they can't compete with the City's and Chelsea's of the world.

Do managers get enough time? Some do, some don't. That c*** Kean got over a season too long. I think the next one for the 'sack race', will be BFS.

Any club / owner who thinks you can buy instant success is a fool. Kean got far too much time and anyone who knew the first thing about football could see that he should never have been given the job in the first place.
Generally though managers don't get enough time from greedy impatient owners.
If Fergie had been sacked in the early days United might not have had the success they have enjoyed over the last 20 yrs.

Agent Kean was given 60 matches. That was a good crack at it! Wonder why?
