Good luck to him indeed. Unfairly maligned in my view. It will be interesting to see how he gets on there.

Ironically Justin Edinburgh, who he is replacing at Northampton, was being touted as a desirable up and coming young manager by some of our own supporters just a couple of years ago. Management is a fickle business.

Sales of sleeping pills in Northampton have slumped.

Hope he does well. In no way ranks alongside two other former managers who took us backwards and he made improvements to our defence and brought on the likes of Hall, Luongo, Shodipo and Smithies before he lost his way. Will be interesting to see if his measured slow build-up approach will reap rewards in the cut and thrust of League One.

He'll need to rebuild his reputation with this appointment so it'll be interesting to see whether he does.

I'm not sure he will. I don't think many outsiders would perceive his time with us particularly negatively. Good luck to the bloke.

His must have been one of the most unusual sackings in modern football. Normally it is 'results' that get the manager the push. With JFH, it was more a matter of 'style of football'.
It's simple. Score more goals than they do.

If felt like a populist move, fans are unhappy (and i won't argue it was great to watch) sack him and get in a fan favourite. We might never find out if it was the right choice. It's certainly not clear to me right now, but hopefully, we won't find out with us passing each other in the divisons.

He won 13 out of 47 games - 27%.

Granted not long into the season but the undercover reporter, 6-0 home defeat to Newcastle, 1 point from his last 3 games incharge, 17th in the table with no real signs of improvement.

I would say results had a large part to do with it.

There are many factors that bide you extra time with owners and fans, unfortunately for Jimmy on a likeable human level he ticked none of the boxes!

He did seem to lose his way but let's not forget that his hands were tied to an extent by what he inherited, what he was forced to get rid of and the money (or lack of) that he was given to work with. I'd like to see any other manager make a team out of the likes of Gladwin and Emmanuel Thomas. IN fairness he got Polter, Luongo, Karl Henry, Shodipo and Hall playing very well.

He had a full pre-season, results & performances were not improving.

But let's not kid ourselves we all know full well the undercover report was the end of him!
