We have a general Premier League discussion thread so let's have a thread for the other divisions. It can be used for talking points that don't necessarily require a new thread. A couple of examples might be Fleetwood, Nobbers and even Daib0's Reading. 

It will probably die a death....

Good to see Nobbers lose again. Can't see them being sucked back into the relegation battle again though. 

Bad day for Daib0's Reading. 4-0 home defeat to Swansea.

Steve Bruce has been named as the new manager of Championship club Sheffield Wednesday.

Bruce will take charge from 1 February, with assistants Steve Agnew and Stephen Clemence taking control until then.

Dutchman Jos Luhukay was dismissed by Wednesday on 21 December after less than a year in charge.

In any other profession a manager that keeps getting sacked would never get another job. Not just Bruce, there are loads of them with CV's that just say 'failed'.

To be fair to Bruce, I think he holds the record for the most ever promotions so it's not all bad. Villa was a tough job and he did better there than most managers would.

I think it could be a shrewd appointment by Wednesday. I think their fans are generally happy with appointing a 'proper' manager to quote one fan.

John Sheridan has resigned as manager of Carlisle. They have just won 5 on the bounce and in the League Two play offs. He is expected to be announced as the new Chesterfield manager who are a club in turmoil at the bottom of the Conference. 

It's a funny old game....

‍its also the only profession that’s deems failure as success..... if you get my drift.

Gary Rowett sacked at Stoke.

David Moyes and Allardyce linked.

‏It looks like Stoke have got their man to replace Gary Rowett in Luton's Nathan Jones. #scfc #LTFC

Luton are doing brilliant. Second from the top of League One. Going to Stoke is a gamble. Car crash of a club.

Didn't see this one coming

Nottingham Forest have parted company with manager Aitor Karanka after just a year in the job.

The 45-year-old Spaniard was appointed in January 2018 and has left the City Ground with Forest seventh in the Championship table.

His final game in charge was Saturday's FA Cup defeat by Chelsea, having beaten Leeds the previous week to move within four points of the top six.

A club statement said Karanka "asked to be released from his contract".

A win is a win especially when you're down there! 

I think you will be ok and it will be Bolton, Rotherham and Ipswich that go down.
