Burnley Set To Sack Brian Laws With Relegation Imminent

Richard Smith by Richard Smith / 08 April 2010, 08:39

Brian Laws looks set to be put out of his misery before the end of the season after less than three months in charge of Burnley, Laws has won just one game since taking over at Turf Moor and relegation back to the Championship is now looking inevitable. It is understood that the board are deliberating over whether to get rid of Laws now or wait until the end of season before giving the former Sheffield Wednesday Manager the boot. Either way time is up for the Manager who looked a broken man after he watched his Burnley team ship 6 goals at home against Man City last weekend, the defending at times was embarrassing for the team and Brian Laws has been around long enough to know that the buck stops with the Manager.

In truth Laws has been fighting a losing battle ever since taking over from Owen Coyle in January with the squad lacking in the quality needed to stay in the top flight. The appointment of Laws did raise a few eyebrows when it was announced after he had a poor spell at Sheffield Wednesday, it has been the first time he has taken charge of a Premier League team and on this evidence it may well be the last time. Owen Coyle did a fantastic job by taking the team into the Premier League but clearly felt relegation was inevitable when he jumped ship to Bolton at the start of the year, at the time he was criticised for making a sidewards move but he has now been fully vindicated in his decision.

Laws may have hoped for the chance to rebuild the team in the Championship but he will not be at the helm for the start of next season leaving the board with a tough decision over the next couple of weeks. Do they act now and give a new man a small chance of keeping them in the Premier League or do they accept relegation and wait until the Summer before looking for a new man who can lead them in the Championship?sackometer-04-on-the-brink
