The End of the line for Russell Slade

Last update: 5 March 2017 Tags: Coventry City, Russell Slade. Categories: Featured, League One.


Slade having previously managed Cardiff and Leyton Orient was the fourth manager to take charge of the sky blues this season and having little success in Coventry, the sky blues are now looking for a fifth manager with the confirmed sacking of Russell Slade being announced on the official Coventry City website. Russell Slade after only 16 games in charge of Coventry City has been sacked, with 13 points away from safety in league one it was the right decision to let the 56 year old boss go with very little succession in his time in charge of the sky blues.

With only three wins in his sixteen games as first team manager, Slade was appointed manager of the sky blues on the 21st of December 2016 in the hope of producing incredible results. Unfortunately, this season for the sky blues Slade has done the complete opposite with the sky blues being more likely than ever to drop down to the fourth tier for the first time since the 1958-59 season which is honestly heart braking for all of the Coventry fans. The latest disappointment for the sky blues came in the form of a goalless draw away against Shrewsbury town, in which the game was delayed for a 20 minute period of time due to the clashing of heads between the two team mates Andy Rose and Nathan Clarke.

Was it the right decision to let go of Slade with only 16 games as boss? Let us know at @AllOutFootball_
