It's been another eventful week in the Championship with Sheffield Wednesday parting company with their boss Brian Laws and QPR suspending manager Jim Magilton.
- I look at the reasons why Laws finds himself out of a job and why Magilton finds himself in the situation he is in......

What do you make of the suspension of manager Jim Magilton by QPR? Since the club's takeover in 2007, they have had five permanent bosses and three caretakers - is the post becoming a poisoned chalice?

The numbers speak for themselves at QPR - they are meant to have a five-year plan but, as Mark points out, the speed at which they get through managers shows how badly the board are getting things wrong.

But let's look at the Jim Magilton scenario. Last week, Stoke boss Tony Pulis had the same allegations of clashing with a player [James Beattie] levelled at him. But Tony has got Stoke into the Premier League and they are doing very well so the incident is kept in hand and dealt with by his club without any danger of him losing his job.

The same sort of thing has happened at QPR a couple of days later but with a completely different outcome. And Jim will be out, in my opinion. I cannot see him going back there.

But if QPR had won their last two games and were near the top of the Championship, instead of losing them to leave them in mid-table, then Magilton would have got the same treatment as Pulis.

We don't know exactly what has happened between Magilton and Akos Buzaky but in my time as a player I've seen plenty of confrontations between players and managers - I had one myself with John Beck when I was with Cambridge.

There's nothing wrong with it. If you are passionate and you care about the game and you think somebody has let you down, you tell them. We're all big boys... or maybe we're not! That might be the problem.

But we seem to be seeing a dangerous trend appearing where clubs are finding different reasons to get rid of managers and their contracts, often without paying them. It's something I feel strongly about - these things should be written in stone, as they are with players.

It works both ways of course - why should a manager be able to walk out of his contract to go to another club when a player cannot - but the whole problem is that the contracts that managers sign are not worth the paper they are written on...." BBC
