This is more predictable than an Iraqi election when Saddam was running the show.

Not really, that's now 3 unforgivable away defeats in a row (including last year) and 1 win in 9 after a previous run of 10 without a win.  That's unacceptable for a team that wants to survive, for a team that has openly stated they have a goal of automatic promotion it is negligence to keep the useless fucker.

46-2 at the moment.  That's like a Reading midfielder's passing stats compared to Bjanason tonight.

I'm guessing Ab5soluteNob is one of the two.

44 out of 44 is what I saw it peak at, which I can't remember before. 

As for the timing, we're 3 games in and look worse than ever and have won 1 of the last 9. When you do a poll because you're shit and can't win then there isn't a good time to do it. If anyone wakes up tomorrow and feels they voted emotionally the option is there for them to remove their vote and vote again.

if we sack him, we only have 2 more weeks left for the new manager to buy a player in this transfer window.
