Here are the best of the Mike Phelan sacked jokes as he is dismissed from his role as Hull City manager after just 85 days in charge.
The club’s controversial owners moved to dismiss the caretaker turned head coach on Wednesday night with rumours that former Birmingham City man Gary Rowett is set to to take over at the KCOM.
With the club lying bottom of the league and seemingly deprived of resources and playing staff, some were disappointed to see him given the boot.
