Should They Stay Or Should They Go? Mark Hughes, Nigel Adkins and Brian McDermott [POLL]
Today’s your lucky day. You’re the chairman of Queens Park Rangers, Reading and Southampton. You face the decision of whether to stick with your current manager, or replace him. What do you do?
Firing someone is always a difficult decision. There are so many variables involved. Is it really the manager that is failing, or is it the players who are unable to carry through with the manager’s instructions on the pitch? Is Mark Hughes inherently a bad manager, or is that his players are just making stupid mistakes? Do you give your managers time, and things will get better? Or do you pull the plug now.
You, as the imaginary chairperson of QPR, Reading and Southampton, face your toughest decision you’ll make all season. Do you sack your manager now, so you have time to find a replacement and to turn your team around, or do you keep faith in him knowing that progress will happen shortly.
