Today Austria Wien has out done Leicester City.
In October the Foxes sacked their manager with the team in 13th place in the league but only 3 points off a play-off spot. Some, myself included, thought this was an overreaction and despite appointing a very good replacement the team have continued to struggle for the form needed to get Leicester back to the ‘promised land’ of the English Premiership. Now comes the news, at the beginning of the winter break, that with Austria just 2 points off first position but in 4th place, we have sacked the manager.
Both clubs began the season with high expectations but have not been able to show the consistency that their respective fans and boards had anticipated. Leicester appointed Nigel Pearson as their new manager, a good choice, but the teams problems have yet to be resolved. Austria have appointed Ivica Vastić who will need to use the winter break to make an immediate impact upon the players as we face two potentially title determining games when the league resumes on the 11th February 2012.
