    Football Manager Sacking Bingo 2

    Heyrettin out at Maidstone, Elokobi caretaker. 4 months after the game ended still got 2 in post. Ironically my last 3 standing are/were all non-league, wasn't expecting that given the amount of money around at that level. Maybe they can't afford to sack people.

    Part of my aversion to it stems from knowing how capable he had been up to then. All those award-winning albums of the 70s and only 2-3 years previously he had produced Hotter than July, which had 4 pretty decent top 10 singles. I know he did have some (mostly very minor ) hits afterwards but I can't remember any of them - my recollection is he pretty much killed his career/musical credibility with one (IMHO) awful song. There are several better 'last 10 minutes at the disco quick grope' songs on this list - notably Move Closer and the FGTH Power of Love.

    Just spotted I failed to subtract the -3 I gave the Crowd from its total so it should now have 12. Can the next person incorporate, thanks.
