- Jason Koumas / John Morrissey
Forest Green sacked Adrian Pennock just prior to the National League play offs five years ago and replaced him with Mark Cooper. That is the only other example I can think of.It's been the season for it; Mourinho sacked before the EFL Cup Final and Hill gone after securing (stumbling into) a play off place. I'm sure that somebody more in the know than me can confirm if the Hill situation is unique.
For what it's worth I'm amazed but delighted with the decision; it probably appears a brave one from outside looking in but just feels logical to me. Hats off to MP for his decisiveness, though. If we lose in the play offs there will be little backlash since the majority of fans have got what they wanted.
