I’m sure a lot of us can sympathise with Chris Haigh’s reaction to the events of the last 24 hours.
Tim Sherwood, Steve Bruce, Alan Pardew, Eddie Howe, Gareth Southgate. What a shortlist for the FA

The lack of good English managers is correctly noted by football writer Babak Golriz, with an unproven Eddie Howe seemingly the best of a poor selection.
If the FA are wondering what to do next, Blackburn replaced Sam Allardyce with Steve Kean.

On the plus side, Allardyce leaves as with a 100% win record, as this graphic from the Telegraph notes.
