Good God, even the new Leeds board got their heads out of their camels' backsides and saw the light of day in relation to Warnock. They were, of course, at the very least, a few weeks too late to act, but they got around to it eventually and asked Old Big Gob to go politely. And the form of Leeds since Christmas has been close to spectacular in comparison to the lame Foxes and the choking Smoggies.
Another week goes by and Leicester, who at the end of January looked favourites for an automatic promotion place, have slipped further behind the play off pack, whilst Miserableboro's chances are now officially zero. And all this time, the directors at the two clubs have fiddled whilst, well in the case of Mowbray's mob, Rome choked on fumes.
Look at the stats for God's sake! Since the beginning of February, Leicester have snuffled just 8 points from 13 games. That is an average of just .615 points per game, which averaged over a 46 game season would see a team finish with 28 points and relegated by a country mile! Oh, and Leicester also contrived to exit the FA Cup at the hands of Huddersfield!
And Miserableboro's record is even worse! They managed to lose to Leicester - a huge achievement in the circumstances - and have collected just 8 points in the whole of 2013 at an average return of .47 points per game. Average THAT out over a 46 game season and a team finishes with 21 points!
Now those stats do not suggest a blip in form, they suggest a terminal decline. When you consider how much Leicester have spent, Pearson's record is an absolute disgrace and whilst Mowbray may not have a great squad - and has saddled himself with the albatross that is Kieron Dyer - there is no way in a million years that the players are as bad as the results suggest.
With Martin O'Neill available it is a mystery why he has not be installed to get Leicester into and through the playoffs on a million pound bonus if he succeeds. Never mind next season, he was, and is, an obvious short term fix. As for Miserableboro, the season is now dead and the smog over the city has been added to by the cremation of the fans' dreams for yet another season - though incredibly the manager refuses to accept the fact probably because he has seagull shit in his eyes after yesterday's defeat at home to Brighton.
Now sacking managers willy nilly achieves nothing, of course, as the Blackburn and Wolves boards have proved, but sometimes the situation cries out for a change. Quite how Pearson and Mowbray remain in jobs is a complete mystery given results for three months now!
