Nigel Pearson looked to have a good project on at Bristol City, but in some way recent results have not been favourable and after losing away to Cardiff and being 15th in table, it was not what was suspected, so NP had to walk the plank. Former Leicester physio David Rennie also left at the sime time, together with first team coach Jason Euell.
Gareth Ainsworth (50) had to leave the manager post at QPR, just hours after being defeated 2-1 by Leicester, in a game The Hoops had a possession rate of 29%, and of course being stuck in the relegation zone it was not a shock to see that happen.
In the other end of the scale, Claudio Ranieri made the news with his Cagliari, making a turn of a miracle being 3-0 down until the 72nd minute of the game vs. Frosisone, but out of thin air goals were scored four times, with two late goals in the 4th and 6th minute of stoppage time.
Claudio is known for miracles, not only bringing glory to Leicester City, with the 5000/1 taking place eight years ago. During his days at Watford he had a number fantastic results as well, seeing a certain Ole Gunnar Solskjaer being sacked as Man Utd manager after a game at Vicarage Road. Watford won the game 4-1 and it was with Claudio in charge.
He also made a special switch when walking into the Leicester job, just recent before that appointment lost his position as national coach of Greece, being defeated at home by Faroe Islands. So he is a man of massive up’s and down’s.
Since leaving Leicester he has been around at different locations being at Nantes, Fulham, Roma, Sampdoria, Watford and Cagliari, taking over a club he also was in charge for from 1988 to 1991. So far he has taken Cagliari up from Serie B and despite a struggle so far in Serie A, this win at Frosisone will give hope of a better form to arrive and hopefully escape relegation.
