Charlton part company with Dowie
Charlton have announced that manager Iain Dowie has left the club.Stuart Pearce, Gareth Southgate, and Glenn Roeder's days were just made that much brighter. There's still ages of time left though.
Dowie took over from long-standing boss Alan Curbishley at the start of the season and has only been in charge for 12 Premiership games.
But the Addicks have only won two league matches and are currently bottom of the table with eight points.
The former Crystal Palace boss did lead Charlton to the Carling Cup quarter-final last week but it was not enough to save his job.
The club said on their website that they would make a full statement on Tuesday morning.
Dowie is the first Premiership manager to lose his job this season.
Simon Jordan's also having a laugh, I'm sure.
