Out of order. Yes, they got spanked but that has more to do with gross financial imbalance between clubs in the EPL than his coaching skills. That score tells you everything you need to know about that rotten league.

True, although I won’t be shedding a tear over him losing his job following their antics against us last season.

Couldn’t happen to a more deserving person.

He showed at Fulham he is not good enough to manage at that level. So, a fully understandable decision. There is something about him that is 'off', he doesn't have the personality to make him particularly likable. It probably comes down to passion or lack of it.

In other news Stevie G is being slowly found out at Villa. He's not the same without Mick B.

The Villa fans have been saying the same too...

If he could kindly let us borrow Archer for a season on is way out that would be great! :lol:

Bournemouth have spent £24M on incoming players, compared with Fulham's £50M or so, and Forest's £125M. You can hardly blame Parker for hinting to the club's owners that they might struggle without further investment. His sacking seems to be more about his post-match comments after the Liverpool game than the defeat itself.

Exactly, having taken three points from 4 games

2 of the games against 2 of the best teams in Europe and a loss to an improving arsenal, it seems more than footy related

It's his smug face, dappy hair, and over-sized head, well this and the fact he's a plum.

He’s probably regretting spending 1300 quid on that cardigan now.

He'd still be in a job if he'd invested in a good quality sheepskin coat, like a proper football manager. Game's gone.
