Kilmarnock Fans Shocked, Angry and Confused by Angelo Alessio’s Surprise Sacking

The appointment of the former Inter Milan, Juventus and Italy assistant manager raised a few eyebrows in the summer, following Steve Clarke’s decision to leave Rugby Park for the Scotland job.

And Alessio has endured a few difficult moments in his early time in Scotland, most notably the humiliating Europa League qualifying exit to Welsh semi-pro side Connah’s Quay Nomads.

But it looked like Alessio had steadied the ship, and was finally implementing his own style of play – until this afternoon’s shock news that he’d no longer be in charge of the Ayrshire club.

Needless to say, the news has generated a pretty strong reaction from Killie supporters:

“It wasn’t great with the manager. I’ll be honest, it was a shitshow at times. That’s the truth. But the players weren’t the ones who got him sacked. It wasn’t as if the players weren’t having him because he’s foreign or anything to do with the language. You looked at his CV with Conte and it’s top class. Brilliant. But maybe that doesn’t tell the full story.

“Gus Poyet was one of the best managers, coaches, I have worked with. Him and Steve Clarke,” Dicker continues. “Their worth ethic, their organisation of training and the team, their understanding of the game. You wouldn’t believe how many fucking managers haven’t got a clue what they’re doing and what they want to do.

“There’s a difference between having an idea of how you want to play but actually explaining it to the players and getting it across in training.”

The Board of Directors wishes to thank our supporters for their fantastic backing throughout the year.

Over 1,500 fans turned out in Paisley yesterday to provide great support for the team and as we head into the winter break, it is important to provide an update over our managerial situation and the January transfer window.

The club is pleased to announce Alex Dyer has been appointed manager until the end of the 2019/20 season.

Alex has been an integral part of the success the club has achieved in the past two seasons and he has been working closely with Head of Football Operations James Fowler to identify January transfer targets to strengthen the current playing squad.

Alex said: “I care deeply about this fantastic football club and it is a privilege to be named Manager until the end of the season.

“I believe we have a good group of players at the club and with a few additions during the transfer window then I’m convinced we can rejuvenate our season and re-establish the identity the club has built over the past few years.”

Billy Bowie said: “Alex is hugely respected by everyone at the club and we believe he is capable of ensuring the club moves forward in the right direction again.

“In Alex and James Fowler, we have two men who know the club well and our full focus is to support them during the transfer window and all the crucial work that will follow.

“I’m sure our fans will join us in giving their full support to Alex for the remainder of the season.”

Seems a complete panic move from the club after he's forced their hand. Work to be done in January to reinforce the squad, as a few of their better players could be on the move.

Can see them being mediocre enough for the rest of the season, but the energy the club had about six months ago has completely gone.
