Lee Clark, Birmingham City, sacked 20th October
Birmingham City sacked Lee Clark less than 48 hours after they lost 1-0 at home to Bolton. The disappointing defeat, which was their third in a row at home, left the struggling Blues just one place above the Championship relegation zone, with just two wins from 12 league games.
Clark took charge of Birmingham back in June 2012 following the departure of Hughton. Since his appointment the Midlands outfit have consistently struggled, finishing 12th in his debut season, while back in May they surviving the dreaded drop on the final day of the campaign. A poor start to the current crusade ultimately forced the board to act, with Clark becoming the ninth Championship casualty so far this term.
Rob Edwards, Tranmere Rovers, sacked 13th October
Rob Edwards became the second League Two boss to lose his job on 13 October after Tranmere Rovers sent him packing. The under-fire gaffer had endured a difficult start to life in the dugout, winning just two of his 14 games (in all competitions) at the helm. The rock-bottom Merseyside outfit had been on a seven match winless run, which included four consecutive defeats.
The former Exeter City coach took charge of the Prenton Park club back in May following their relegation from League One. Nine points from 12 fourth-tier games, along with a first round exit from the League Cup, resulted in those in power wielding the axe after just five months.
Nigel Worthington, York City, resigned 13th October
Nigel Worthington resigned from his post at York City following their 3-1 defeat at Newport County, which left the club 22nd in League Two, with just one win to their name all season. The Minstermen's latest loss was their fourth on the spin, while they had previously been dumped out of the Capital One Cup and Johnstone's Paint Trophy at the first hurdle.
Worthington took charge of York in March and went on the steer them to a 17th place finish. In his first full season at the helm the former Northern Ireland boss led the club through to the play-offs, where they lost narrowly to Fleetwood, who went on to win promotion up to League One.
Russ Wilcox, Scunthorpe United, sacked 8th October
Just over five months after leading Scunthorpe United to promotion up to League One Iron boss Russ Wilcox lost his job. United endured a poor start to life back in the third-tier, losing eight of their opening 11 matches, while the Johnstone's Cup Trophy defeat at home to Notts County proved to be the final straw.
Wilcox stepped up from his caretaker role into the full-time job on Christmas Eve 2013. The former Iron player went on to enjoy a simply stunning 28-game unbeaten run, which shattered a 125-year Football League record, before finally losing his first game in April. However, he still memorably led United to promotion, although their woeful start to the 2014/15 campaign has ultimately cost him his job.
Billy McKinlay, Watford, sacked 7th October
In a remarkable turn of events Watford ruthlessly sacked the unbeaten Billy McKinlay after just two matches in charge (W1 D1). The Hornets harshly booted the former Fulham coach out of the door in order to appoint a more experienced manager with a proven winning record, in Slavisa Jokanovic
McKinlay has only been handed the job eight days earlier after replacing Oscar Garcia, who had been forced to step down due to health concerns. As a result McKinlay's brief tenure is the sixth shortest managerial reigns in English football. The Scot departed Vicarage Road with Watford third in the Championship, but level on points with the top-2 teams.
Colin Cooper, Hartlepool United, resigned 4th October
Colin Cooper resigned from his post at Hartlepool United in the aftermath of the club's shocking 3-0 reverse at home to fellow League Two strugglers Carlisle United. The comprehensive defeat was Pool's seventh league defeat of what has been a difficult season, as they dropped to the bottom of the Football League, with a meagre tally of just eight points from 11 matches.
Cooper took charge at Victoria Park 16 months ago. In his first season in charge of Pool they flirted with the play-offs, before enduring a horrific end to the campaign (eight defeats in their final 12 games) and only just managed to avoid the drop by three points. Cooper was unable to change things around at the start of the current campaign, and leaves his position after taking the club as far as he can.
Dougie Freedman, Bolton Wanderers, mutual consent 3rd October
At the start of October Dougie Freedman became the sixth casualty of the Championship season after leaving Bolton by mutual consent. The 40-year-old had been under immense pressure following the struggling club's dire start to the crusade, which had seen them pick up a miniscule five points (W1 D2 L7), with Wednesday's 4-0 hammering at Fulham proving to be the final straw.
Freedman took charge of the Trotters just under two years ago after surprisingly leaving his post at high-flying Crystal Palace. The Scot went on to impressively change results around at the Reebok Stadium, leading Bolton from 20th up to 7th by the end of the campaign, however they agonisingly missed out on promotion on goal difference on the final day. The Great Manchester club failed to build on their progress the following season, finishing down in 14th, while the current campaign has been an absolute disaster.
Oscar Garcia, Watford, resigned 29th September
Watford manager Oscar Garcia was forced to step down as head coach of the Championship club due to ill health. The 41-year-old Spaniard only took charge of the Hornets 27 days ago but was unfortunately unable to continue in the dugout following health concerns.
Garcia landed the Watford job on 2 September following the surprise departure of Beppe Sannino, who resigned despite enjoying a cracking start to the season. However, after Garcia's first match at the helm - a 1-0 victory over Charlton - the former Brighton boss spent a week in hospital with chest pains, and while he went on to recover, he now requires rest away from the dugout.
Russell Slade, Leyton Orient, resigned 24th September
Russell Slade handed in his resignation two days after Leyton Orient rejected an approach from Cardiff City. Slade was reportedly infuriated with his side's reluctance to speak to the managerless Bluebirds, and subsequently quit after four-and-a-half-years in charge of the Brisbane Road club.
Last season Slade led the London side to the League One play-offs, only to heartbreakingly lose on penalties to Rotherham. However, he had been under pressure at the O's following a sluggish start to the current league campaign, while the club had also been dumped out of the Capital One Cup by Sheffield United, which turned out to be his final game in charge.
Felix Magath, Fulham, sacked 18th September
Felix Magath was eventually sent packing less than 24 hours after his suffered were beaten 5-3 at Nottingham Forest. The defeat was the club's sixth of the season, which left them rooted to the bottom of the table, with just one point to their name.
The German took charge of the club in February, but failed to inspire a turnaround, with the London outfit's 13-year stay in the Premier League coming to an end in May. Magath held onto his job over the summer but Fulham's woeful start to the new season has forced owner Shahid Khan to wield the axe.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, Cardiff City, mutual consent 18th September
After heavy speculation over his future it was finally officially revealed that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer had parted ways with Cardiff City. The Bluebirds had stuttered of late, failing to win any of their last four matches, which left them languishing down in 17th.
The Man Utd legend arrived on the scene in January following the departure of Malky Mackay. The likeable boss was a popular choice at the time, but unfortunately for both himself and the club his lack of experience ultimately cost him, with the Welsh side suffering the dreaded drop back down to the Championship. Despite having a talented squad at his disposal the Norwegian was unable to click them into gear back in the second-tier.
Micky Adams, Port Vale, resigned 18th September
Micky Adams quit Port Vale following six successive defeats in all competitions, including five consecutive League One losses. The rotten run of form had piled the pressure on the under-fire Adams, who decided to hand in his resignation shortly after his side were thrashed 3-0 at home by Bristol City.
Adams' resignation brings to an end his five-year stay at Vale Park. The 52-year-old was appointed manager of for a second time back in the summer of 2011, just four months after leaving the club. In his second season in charge, after returning, Adams led Vale to promotion up to League One, following a 3rd place finish, and then followed this up with an impressive 9th standing in the third-tier. However, the current campaign was a different story, with the club losing their last five league games on the spin.
James Beattie, Accrington Stanley, mutual consent 12th September
James Beattie surprisingly departed Accrington Stanley by mutual consent on the eve before the club's match at home to AFC Wimbledon. The League Two club had endured a poor start to the season, losing six of their seven games in all competitions, however a victory over Tranmere the previous weekend had appeared to boost confidence...
Beattie took charge of the Reds in May 2013, and despite being hampered by financial @, the former Southampton player impressively managed to keep them in the Football League, by steering them to a 15th-place finish. However, four points from six games at the start of the 2014/15 campaign proved costly.
Joe Dunne, Colchester United, mutual consent 1st September
Joe Dunne became the second Football League manager to pack his bags on the opening day of September after he parted ways with Colchester United. The break-up occurred following a woeful start to the new season, which saw the U's take one point from their opening five games, while they were also dumped out of the League Cup.
Five defeats on the spin in all competitions forced the club to react and Dunne subsequently became the first League One boss to lose his job. In total he won 27 of his 95 matches at the helm over the course of two years.
Graham Kavanagh, Carlisle United, sacked 1st September
Graham Kavanagh become the first League Two manager of the season to suffer the sack after Carlisle United sent him packing following a crushing 5-0 defeat to Cambridge. The Blues could only register two points from their opening five games, leaving them 22nd in the table and without a win to their name since early April.
Kavanagh took charge of Carlisle in September 2013, following the sacking of Greg Abbott, but endured a difficult campaign at the helm, which culminated in relegation down to League Two on the final day. The 2014/15 season started off in a similar fashion, resulting in the club wielding the axe on Transfer Deadline Day.
Giuseppe Sannino, Watford, resigned 31st August
Giuseppe Sannino surprisingly resigned from his post at Vicarage Road at the end of August, despite Watford's fine start to the season. The Italian had led the Hornets to four wins from their opening five matches, which put them in second spot heading into September. However, Sannino suddenly decided that he had taken the club as far as he could, and subsequently stepped down from the helm.
Sannino took charge of Watford in December 2013 following the shock departure of Gianfranco Zola. Last season the London club finished down in a disappointing 13th place, but they dusted off the cobwebs and enjoyed a cracking start to the 2014/15 campaign, beating the likes of Bolton, Rotherham, Leeds and Huddersfield up until Sannino's exit.
Dave Hockaday, Leeds United, sacked 28th August
Leeds United sacked Dave Hockaday after only six matches at the helm. The former Forest Green Rovers boss was a shock appointment back in June, but after just half-a-dozen games in charge the club's owner Massimo Cellino decided that he was the wrong man for the job.
The 56-year-old was under considerable pressure from the word go, and his side's poor start to the season - four defeats in six games - resulted in Cellino pulling the trigger before the month of August even come to a close. In total Hockaday won two and lost four of his six games at the helm.
Tony Pulis, Crystal Palace, mutual consent 14th August
With just two days to go before the start of the 2014/15 season Crystal Palace fans were shocked over rumours that boss Tony Pulis was set to leave the club, his odds were slashed from 40/1 to 4/1 and then late on 14th August it was announced that he had left the club via the old classic "mutual consent" making the manager the first managerial casualty of the 2014/15 Premier League.
The reasons for the departure appear to be based around tense discussions between Pulis and Palace chairman Steve Parish and the managers frustration with the lack of summer transfer signings.
Mark Robins, Huddersfield Town, sacked 10th August
Huddersfield Town sacked boss Mark Robins just one game into the new 2014/15 Championship season following a crushing 4-0 defeat at home to Bournemouth on the opening day. At first glance the surprise decision seems both a harsh and ruthless, however if you take into account the club's dreadful form at the end of the previous season (2 wins in 13) then it becomes clearer.
Robins took charge of the Terriers in February 2013 and went on to save the club from relegation. In his first full season in charge he once again kept the Yorkshire outfit in the second-tier after steering them to a 17th place finish. However, their disappointing end to the 2013/14 campaign, followed by their shocking start to the current season, proved to be costly for Robins.
