I know "Ainsworth to QPR" is on the Wycombe thread, but I thought it worthy of comment that 4 clubs in the championship have now had 3 managers this season.  Cardiff, Wigan and Huddersfield the other 3.  

Critchley's stock has fallen since he walked out on Blackpool to join Gerrard at Villa 7 months ago.  He'll struggle to get another championship job as a No 1 any time soon, probably informing Stevie G of his availability as we speak.

In the world of football management I wouldn't rule that out 

Only business that seems to reward failure

It might also be the only business that gives a new boss less than 3 months to turn it around

Its mad

The championship has become a graveyard for managers over recent times 

17 clubs changed manager in that league at least once since last season ended.

No wonder premiership clubs increasingly recruit from overseas - no one is given the chance any longer to prove themselves

Assuming Ainsworth joins QPR Evatt becomes the 8th longest serving EFL manager

If you're QPR though surely you'd go for Nathan Jones over Ainsworth?

He's available, proven at this level, reputation to repair. Of course wage demands and terms of leaving Southampton could play a part

I'd like them to go for Ainsworth as it obviously weakens a play off rival, but I think he's happy there, and sometimes a move upwards doesn't work out

As Nathan Jones has found out

I think Wilder would be their best bet, obvs want Ainsworth to go there mind.

Weird one that, done nowt at Charlton of note.

That would be another one where he'd get till the end of the season, and if he's not stamped his mark on it with some standout results, you just know they'd bow to fan pressure and appoint a "name" in the summer.  Even though Ainsworth is "lower league" I think he'd get longer and anybody can see he's done a great long term job at Wycombe, but inexperienced managers like Holden, and Critchley etc, just don't have that to fall back on.

Holden? Yeah, but I don't think he has done much at note at the clubs he's been at

Assistant at Oldham, and boss temporarily. A basket case of a club.

Assistant at Bristol City and then temp/full time boss, before getting the boot.

Hardly had a run as proper number one, but seems to be rated. 

Only been at Charlton a few weeks, but if the stats I've seen are correct, then he has a 50% win rate in the league.

Ainsworth appointed.

Wycombe have replaced him with the Colchester boss, who was Ainsworth’s assistant last year.

He was there for 19 years as a player, including 10 under Ainsworth.

So a Sammy Lee-type appointment but also it would be like us appointing Nolan or Jussi after Big Sam left.
