Yeah, I'm still toying with how to make that one work. 45 is clearly too many but I do want to get some recognition of glorious failure in there.

I had JD somewhat in mind with 7 and 10. 7 might be a struggle for even JD, managers are rarely sacked the day before matches are they? And 10 he's just got no chance, surely?

Depends, I've been sacked for being a cock in the media before and there's sometimes an interview regarding such and such on a Friday.

How about get sacked twice in one season? JD should be able to pull that one off.

The Black Friday one made me chuckle! Mrgreen

Three times in one season would be a better one, I'm sure the title could then relate to something along the lines of 3 strikes and you're out, a baseball type thing?

Oh yeah, it's definitely possible.  I don't want any of them to be impossible.

Sounds good.  Will probably have to be a calendar year rather than a season due to different nation's seasons running at different times.

...in that case we should probably start the awards going from this day forward. Mrgreen

Great work so far JP, may I put forward another suggestion:

The Chosen One - get headhunted by a bigger team to be their manager based on your current successful and comfortable tenure, accept the new job, only to fail miserably, get sacked and be forced to find a job in another country, where you get sacked as well and end up a club that is worse off than the club that you started at.

Erm, I think the screenshot trail for that one may be a little complicated, kin. Besides that's 90% of JD's career threads...

I like these suggestions JP Thup

Remember some leagues play their matches on Fridays, so getting sacked immediately after the game isn't out of the question (or even the day after a Europa League defeat)!

I think that one would make more sense if you were returning to them from abroad
