UF Quick Throw: Bin Man...Binned

Apparently winning the local Derby over your bitter rivals doesn't get you praise in the backwards bolt-holes of Ipswich. It gets you the sack.

'Gentleman Jim' Magilton was canned this morningm, one day after laughing at the Norwich fans who sang "Youre getting sacked in the morning" after Mooney put Norwich one up in the derby last Sunday. Magilton has been elbowed for failing to reach the play-offs, but I think there was more to it than finishing a possible 7th.

Magilton caused his own downfall when he held a much publicized closed-door meeting a few months back and only invited some of the players, alienating the rest of the squad. His sacking comes one day after Ipswich appointed former Olympic committe guru Simon Clegg as Chief Executive. Maybe he can form an Ipswich badminton team for 2012, because they are clearly shite at football.

I know... people in glass houses and all that!
