Another one bites the dust: Bristol City sack Derek McInnes

After a 4-0 thumping at home to Leicester City on Saturday which left Bristol City bottom of the Championship, the Robins have relieved Derek McInnes of managerial duties.

The 41-year-old has been at the helm of the Reds since 2011 and has been shown unbelievable patience considering his shocking win percentage. From the 63 games he has been in charge of the club, he has seen his team lose 32 times, more than half!

McInnes arrived at Ashton Gate after a successful spell as St Johnstone gaffer where he won the Scottish First Decision and built a reputation of an exciting, up and coming manager, and when he took charge of City, who were at the foot of the Championship when he arrived, an unbeaten run of 8 games ensured that the club would sustain their second division status.

Things looked bright as the 2012/13 season kicked off after they earned vital victories over the likes of Crystal Palace and Cardiff who were both floating around the top, but since then the fans have had almost nothing to shout about.

City went on a club record-breaking 7 consecutive losses during this campaign and now find themselves 8 points adrift at the bottom, and managing director Jon Landsdown has had enough.

He told the Bristol City website: “We want to give ourselves the best possible chance of getting out of the situation we are currently in and we’ve got 20 games to do that.”

League One isn’t that bad, City fans.
