Cheerio Leslie, watch the door doesn't hit you on the arse on the way out.

I believe Gainsborough Trinity are after a new physio if you find yourself stuck for something to do on a Saturday...

In an interview on Late Kick Off last season, Parry was asked if he would ever think of reverting to a physio role. "No, I regard myself as a manager now. I wouldn't go back to being a physio", was his response.

Well, you're neither now, Sponge Bob, so maybe you need a rethink. Never nice to see a manager get the boot, but I think he'll really struggle to get another manager's job. Although possibly slightly more chance than Dave Penney.

Loved the remark the other night re "Sponge Bob" suits him well. Personally I think he should have stayed in post as hes doing a great job ;-)

It's a shame that a guy who has been at the club for 20 years has been sacked, from a human point of view he won't have much savings and will be struggling to find work. From a football point of view, screw him he was naff.

Be interesting to see who they get in to replace him, as it might be a good benchmark to see who we could get if Dickov moves on.

Credit to the man - started out his working life as a shipbuilder at Cammell Laird and then studied and became a physio. Then steps up to be a manager and makes a pretty good fist of it for a while. Fair play.

Our physio must be snowed under at the minute - can we not offer him a bit of part time work?

Nothing on the TRFC website at the moment. Just checked their fans forum now and there's a post saying they've heard from a player today he took charge of training, though how reliable that is I'm sure nobody knows.

I for one think he should stay, he was doing superbly.

I dunno, I thought he was one of the better personalities in the parade of the bland that is footballers and managers. He always came across quite humourous and decent on Late Kick Off or other such programmes. Like Yard Dock mentioned, his journey to becoming one is quite nice and not dissimilar to the way Eyresy cut his teeth. At the end of the day it's an honest pro who's out of a job now and possibly still a bit of a mortgage to pay.

He always struck me like a non-league or pub team manager though. I think he'd do a good job at Marine FC or similar.

"The ball was drilled low across the face of the area by Zola to a rampaging riddler, about 20 yards out near the corner of the penalty area. One touch from Cooksey and thwaboom! The ball seared the turf as it cracked into the bottom left corner. It was a truly brilliant goal, with fluid teamwork and a marvellous finish giving Davison no chance at all."

Sarah Mulkerrins (BBC) now reporting this on Twitter.

The bloke who used to drive the bus I get to work is a Tranmere fan. I say a Tranmere fan, he's one of these gobshites who doesn't go to the game, doesn't watch football much, doesn't really follow the game, doesn't even check 'his' team's results most weeks, but knows more than me about football cos he possesses the Testicles of Footballing Knowledge. Haven't seen him for months, he's probably been sacked for being a creepy little shit. Anyway.....he gave me loads of grief when we appointed Dickov. He's nothing but a thug, he's thick, he'll pick up that many touchline bans he won't be able to do the job, Parry's gonna be a far better manager, he's done a brilliant job so far, once the board give him some money he'll be superb, I bet you wish you had Parry instead of Dickov, etc etc blah blah blah.

There were many thoughts going through my head when Dickov came over to the away end to celebrate with us at the end of the game yesterday, most of them unrepeatable. "I wish we had Les Parry in charge" wasn't one of them.

Not nice to see him out of work after so many years at Trannies.

Not much sympathy on a footballing level though after he told his staff not to return the ball to our players for throw-ins when they were last at BP. To his physio who was about to throw the ball to Kieran Lee after it had gone out:

"What are you doing? Don't f*cking give them the ball back."

It is all a ploy and he will be taking over at Chelsea later today replacing the axed Villa Boas but doing Tramps out of compo. Barstewards... ;-)

I'm going to say this one more time, as calmly as possible: Tranmere fans are not scousers. A large expanse of water and a few thousand years of evolution separate us. :angry:
