    Crewe - FM07 after underperforming in prem when I was a title challenger. Went to Leeds and pipped Crewe to 4th Champs League spot that season. Serves them right ;)

    Liverpool.

    I don't think the board liked my innovative 2-2-2-2-2 formation.

    At Staines I was doing Dafuge's challenge, Bromley and Cesena were casual challenges, weird that I went from BSP (took Bromley there) to Serie B, then from Serie A to League 2, then took Aldershot to prem league, and ended up at Liverpool and England. Storied career, lasting 13 years, of Daniel Griffin FM 08

    Speaking of which, I haven't done a career game in FM 09, and it was fine in FM 08 without any patches, so perhaps a career will start in the summer holidays (Unless I get a summer job)

    especially when i finished a point off safety and the team above me - luton - was the team i left to go to oldham. they had to lose and i had to get a win to stay safe but they scored in the dying minutes to win 4-3 against the league winners

    never been so gutted before and i was stunned when i was sacked and gutted

    EDIT: i was relegated to league 2 after getting luton to league 1 and then taking charge off oldham

    The one that stands out for me was when i got sacked from liverpool (in fm2005 i think) for fining my players too often, this despite winning the league 3 years in a row a couple of european cups. Went to Leicester City who were in the relegation zone at that time in divison 1 but somehow managed to get them promoted in the same season.

    Next season first league game who do i play? of course liverpool at Anfield! and I won 4-1. I enjoyed that victory very much

    went on to dominate with Leicester City so it worked out in the end

    Only been sacked once since CM 01/02 I believe and that was in FM09 with Fortuna Sittard :mad:

    Was gutted as I had helped them into the playoffs that season when there expectations were only mid-table, and got beaten by a Premier Division side.

    A few days later they sacked me. Wasnt impressed

    Just been sacked by Brazil. Despite leading Cambridge United to a second successive treble I couldn't get Brazil past the first knockout round in the world cup, they were already 53rd in the world so I dread to think how they're doing now. Lost to Serbia, a lucky draw with China then beat Morocco. Went out to Croatia (3-0). Now England manager, doing much better :-)

    Yesterday!!! I decided i was bored at my current club (Originally Blue Square North), needed new challenge it was getting boring.....

    So i asked the board for more money then Ultimatumed! Didnt think they would sack me as i had got them promoted 3 leagues in 3 season but still, made me laugh, got offered job at HSV, three seasons, two titles (from mid table) and two german cups later Barca approached. ;)

    Sometimes good can come of sacking.

    EDIT: Before that i dont think i have been sacked since around Championship Manager 2002?

    I can only remember of 2 instances where I've been sacked. There will have been more occasions, but these days I tend not to get sacked very often.

    On my first ever game on CM97/98, Manchester United sacked me, so I went to Altrincham, newly promoted to the 3rd Division .

    And on FM08, I was managing Serra in the Brazilian Third Division. I think I won them their State C'ship at the first attempt, and was doing okay in the Third Division. Then they sacked me after less than a season for eyeing up another job :mad: So I went to Barras, another team in the division, and got them promoted the next season. To make it even sweeter, Serra got relegated without me!

    Luton Town sacked me in FM 09 after keeping them up first season. Promoted next season, and they were not content with mid table in the next so sacked me!! I was very unimpressed and shocked.

    The only way I ever get sacked is by issuing ultimatums and i've learnt never to do that again.

    I got sacked by PSV in 08 after trying to engineer a move to Portsmouth. Pompey appointed someone else, I refused to leave so they sacked me. Two months later I took over Real Madrid who we're in 11th at the time and won the league on the last day of the season. Four years later I got my dream job at Chelsea and lived happily ever after.

    Ultimatums aside, I never get sacked; I just jump ship if I think I'm doing bad and the board/ fans are being muppets about me. However, my first ever sacking due to results came a couple of weeks ago. The club was Preston North End and it was just after the 2nd round of the FA Cup in which I was hammerd 4-0 by Leyton Orient at Brisbane Road. Annoyingly I was 6th in League One at this point, though Preston finished 17th in the end so there was some justice and I really enjoyed there demise! Annoyingly enough, the 3 times I've played PNE in the league after, I've lost each time, (Once with Peterborough, twice with Crewe) but I did beat them in the JPT!

    Hyde United sacked me after about 5 seasons or so. I got them promoted from the BSN in the first season but after that I got stuck mid table when the board wanted us to win the league. I was duely sacked but luckily got the Mansfield job a few weeks later who were in the same division. It just so happened the next season we got into the FA trophy final and who do we draw, Hyde United. Of course I beat them as well as beating them in the playoff final in the same season.

    I've never been sacked. Ever. Then again, I've never issued an ultimatum or expressed interest in managing another club. I did quit my job once to go after a new challenge, after winning Ligue 1, the French Cup, and the Champion's League, each three years running in FM06, to take Rotherham.

    In FM06 i got sacked from Forest when we were 3rd in League 1, 1 point off second, with 1 game left in the season, after taking them from 7th (where they were when i took over) with 13 games to go!:mad: Couldn't believe it because i was really confident we were going to go up. I think we might have had the 2nd placed team on the last day at home and i won all the home games i was in charge for. Not sure if i even lost a game while i was there!

    Monopoli - Bravely fought against relegation but failed in the end. My first sacking...it was rough.
    Cassino - Our squad was good enough to finish in the top four but we ended up in the lower half. Sacked again.
    Isola Liri - Our squad was predicted to do well but it was the exact opposite.
    Swindon Town - Managed to get my beloved Swindon up to the Premiership but after finishing in last place they ignored my previous achievements and sacked me. I was heart broken...
    Tunisia - Bah
    Egypt - Bah again
    Gambia - Isn't surprising since they are sh**

    I can list probably another four or five but I won't.

    Many different CM/FMs, many different sackings

    Including: Leeds, Newcastle, Hayes & Yeading (well they were relegated from BSS anyway when I took over to get some more experience), Werder Bremen, Hednesford.

    I have more resignations than sackings usually. I resigned from my first job in my current game after over 2 years, and after I took over at H & Y, I joined newly promoted Buxton, who had no players or staff (!). I've built a half decent side though and I'm mid-table at Christmas. Got to the FA Cup 2nd Round too where we lost

    Athletico Madtid on CM01/02 - won my first 6 games, then drew one and lost one and was sacked after only 8 matches in charge.

    I thought that was a tad harsh to be honest.

    In FM09 so far I've been sacked by Man Utd, Spurs and Everton. They were all on 9.0.1 aswell. Been managing Aston Villa ever since 9.0.2. I can't remember about previous versions of FM though

    like the OP i have never actually been sacked in this game yet, since oooh god prob around 2005 FM i think which is the same as you. I have been very very close after this new patch though where managing newcastle i found myself in 17th position half way through the 2nd season after promising euro cup. Had fans on my back, board very dissapointed but my next 3 games were against man utd, arsenal and liverpool and i won them all 2-0. Saved my job.

    edit: Actually i got sacked by blunderland as well but on purpose. I was testing out the difference in media responses when taking on a new job.

    Question. 'So is this a dream job for you?'

    me to along the lines of:

    'meh, its a job that pays but its not like its a dream or anything'

    sacked!

    Tranmere:mad:
    Got them to the Championship at the first attempt and then kept them up easily in the first season. Second-season syndrome struck and they sacked me after losing 4-0 to Wigan (could hardly help it - 4 players sent off :@) and being 3rd bottom at Christmas.

    I got sacked for sleeping with the chairman's wife and being caught in an uncomfortable position (the back of a Volkswagen) with the wives and girlfriends of my entire first team squad.

    If only this were possible...

    I was sacked at Coventry (CM03/04). After taking them to the PL and finishing 5th-8th for two or three seasons, I found myself in the middle of a relegation fight in the third or fourth season and therefore got sacked. I remember having Essien and Marinelli, and a nice young striker, Mark Goodman. Lee Camp was a great goalkeeper !

    milan sacked me after i finished 3rd on 9.1 if I remember correctly.. But that's before I read the TTF

    Got sacked on an FM07 career game. Came from Bristol Rovers to Hull with two games to get them the 5 points they needed to stay up. Did so. Got given 6m to mount a promotion bid. Spent it. Comes the eve of the first game...Sacked. Felt they needed a new manager to freshen things up. With a record of 100% wins in competitive matches, I feel this was perhaps harsh..

    All of them

    nah, Liverpool about 100 times, a few championship teams, ANY lower-league team I've ever attempted, Bayern Munich, Ajax, Marseilles, Valencia and a few others.

    So, it really was all of them then.

    Not been sacked yet however after just a year in charge of Bognor Regis I applied for a vancancy that took my fancy.
    The board were understandably not happy and gave me the oppurtunity to resign in order to save face. As I didn't get the other job I refused to resign and now in season 2 I am still at Bognor and currently top of the league.

    The media describe my relationship with the board as strained however my job status is stable.

    I have been saked a few times over the years. Funniest was with UTD. They had had a crappy season outside the top 6, I took over with about 7 games to go and got them into Champions League, Got sacked because the final league position. That was playing FM 08. Chelsea sacked me because I didnt win the league and had a poor start to the next season.

    1. H&W Welders after I spat my dummy out, demanding a new stadium, training facilities and youth academy. My biggest regret to date.
    2. Dunfermline. My all-Scottish local squad wasn't quite reaching their lofty standards of the top half of the Scottish Premier League.
    3. Swansea. All Welsh squad failed harder than my Dunfermline one. So much so, I looked like a Cardiff secret agent.
    4. Carmarthen Town - All Welsh squad far too crappy to compete with anyone. You'd think I'd learn my lesson.
    5. Cork City - All Irish squad devoid of any confidence, losing most league games and almost certainly going to cost me my job. Still in the job as I type this, however.

    Nottingham Forest, the boogers sacked me after a bad start to my second season, eventhough i guided them to 7th in the table in my first season with them. Went to York City, consolidated for a year, then went up through the playoffs at the expense of accrington stanley, managed to secure a playoff spot in league 2 at first time of asking, however, days before the playoff final i received the job offer from already relegated Wolves. Delayed for a week, lost the playoff final to Crewe, and jumped ship:-)

    It's been a while since I was sacked, but I remember it happening a few times when I first started playing FM (mostly on 05). First time was Chelsea, but I kind of expected it seeing as a lot of my transfers backfired. Happens more with international teams, I've been sacked by France and Sweden (that one hurt).

    I've never actually gotten sacked as far as I remember. But it depends... Does it count if they let your contract expire without offering a renewal? :P
