Ben Garner has left the club it has been announced on the Official Site.
“Charlton Athletic can confirm the departure of Ben Garner as the club’s men’s first-team Manager” (more)
I have to say that has surprised me. I was half way through writing a post looking into Ben Garner’s prospects and I was thinking that this job was getting more and more away from him. In 40 League One games he has won just 10 at Bristol Rovers and Charlton combined.
Simply he didn’t look like he was going to turn it around, and many will say he made his own bed on Friday by picking the team he did, and probably also by his constant reference to what Sandgaard needs to do on the transfer window.
Ironically Garner also said that he had hardly spoken to Thomas all last week. I wonder at least if Sandgaard had the decency this time to do it face to face?
It’s a shame, Garner came over as an honest and good man, but he wasn’t up to the job and Thomas Sandgaard has once again hired naively and badly.
Who will be next then?
