Ipwich manager Jim Magilton has bitten the dust, a victim of the club`s failure to make the play off places again. He may get some sympathy (especially as he was informed over the phone when looking after his sick mother) but it`s unlikely to come from the Bolton area.

Magilton was part of the Ipswich side that beat the Wanderers in a notorious 2000 play off semi-final. The Irishman scored a hat-trick that night, but later received a three-match ban for offences that were missed by the astonishingly inept Barry Knight (now also out of the game). Once more, The Curse of Those Who Spurn Bolton strikes.

Roy Keane has been appointed new manager of the Tractor Boys and Irish football website, has an interesting headline to commemorate the event:

Can the Cult of Keane Lift Ipswich? it asks.

Describing Roy Keane as a cult, is just one letter away from being accurate.
