Pearce pays price for dismal season

Stuart Pearce has been sacked by Manchester City 24 hours after a dismal season ended in defeat at Tottenham.

Despite his continued upbeat statements over his job prospects, Pearce has effectively been a dead man walking for most of 2007, with an increasing majority of supporters vehemently against him continuing in the job.

City chairman John Wardle was thought to be on the brink of dumping Pearce in March, when defeat at Middlesbrough would almost certainly have marked the end of the former England skipper´s two-year reign. Instead, City won, launching a five-game unbeaten run which might have saved Pearce had it continued until the end of the season.
