image for Hodgson Sacking Shock

West Brom manager Roy Hodgson has sensationally been sacked after just 48 hours in charge of the Premiership strugglers.

A spokesman for the club stated that "after much soul searching and many sleepless hours, the directors of West Bromwich Football Club feel that Mr Hodgson's continued presence at the Hawthorns is not in the best interests of all concerned. We have tried to work hand in hand with the manager but, despite everyone on the board's best efforts, we feel there are a considerable number of irreconcilable differences.

Saturday's disappointing 3-3 draw with our relegation candidates West Ham - in which we held a 3-0 lead - was the last straw and we felt we had no alternative but to relieve Mr Hodgson of his duties".

Hodgson was last night unavailable for comment, but a close friend claimed that "he has seen the writing on the wall for some time and was ultimately not surprised by the decision. These things happen in football and I expect Roy to pick himself up and look to get back into the game sooner rather than later.

He'll not hurry into anything as he'll want to look at his time with West Brom to see if there's anything he maybe should have done differently."

Make grimbo's day - give this story five thumbs-up (there's no need to register, the thumbs are just down there!)
