Jose Mourinho was not the only football manager in England to lose his job on a busy Thursday for English football.
John Still was sacked by Luton Town today after two and a half years in charge at Kenilworth Road. He leaves Luton languishing in 17th place in League Two following a run of four straight defeats, having led them to promotion from the Conference in 2014.
Still will be better known to Irish fans as the doomsday prophet of the League of Ireland. The now former Luton boss descended from on high to accompany Roddy Collins at the 2014 FAI Cup Final, with a view to scout players for Luton. He was disappointed, however, with Collins acting evangelist on RTE Radio:
But it’s not until you bring someone in – this is what I see ever week, League of Ireland football – it’s not until you bring someone in from another jurisdiction and sit with them and discuss, beforehand and during; and they go, ‘Rod, they’re not going to get into our team’. And this is a man from the fourth division in England. That’s disappointing. People have this perception that we have players in our leagues that could walk into Championship clubs.
As Richie Towell prepares to begin life at Championship club Brighton in January, John Still has sadly been cast out of Luton. He has been replaced by Academy coach Andy Awford.
