ALEX McLEISH was sacked today after only 44 days in charge of Notts. Forest. Seems a bit short, doesn’t seem enough time to gel, get his back room staff settled, seems a bit harsh, sounds like it might be a record – well no it isn’t.
Officially the record is coverted by our LEROY ROSENIOR – who was in charge of Torquay Utd. for precisely 600 seconds (or 10 minutes in old money) Story goes that after managing Torquay between 2002 & 2006, he was brought in to replace Keith Curle who had been sacked – or so he thought.
Transpires that he had been brought in exactly at the same time a local consortium was trying to buy the club, & when their new chief executive Colin Lee was brought in, his first job was to sack Leroy & bring in Exeter Citys assistant manager Paul Buckle as manager. It’s a funny old game….
