League One: Preston Part Ways With Grayson!.
Simon Grayson: Unstable reign at Preston

Preston North End are supposedly on the search for a new manager after a fallout behind closed doors causes PNE’s owner Trevor Hemmings to step in and take action.

Sky sports have been let to believe that Simon Grayson has permanently left PNE after a breakdown in talks & different opinions during a meeting at Deepdale stadium.

The club confirmed on Sunday evening that they had "parted company" with Grayson but it is understood that consecutive losses during a short pre-season tour, which saw the fierce scot hurdle abuse at match officials & fuel arguments with senior players, which lead to the subsequent meeting which lead to forcing Hemmings to act.

PNE released a statement on the club's official website: "Preston North End FC can finally confirm that they have cancelled head coach, Simon Grayson’s contract with immediate effect.

When Peter Ridsdale was question on the matter he responsed with:
"We will be now looking for our 5th Manager in as many years, John Dryer will once again take charge of the squads pre-season ahead of the season opener and an announcement will be made in due course regarding a permanent successor."

The former Huddersfield boss succeeded footballs worst enemy Graham Westley after he was sacked for an atrocious run of form at the back end of last season Preston scraped to unsatisfactory 15th last season, however with the appointment of Grayson the Preston faithful where filled with hope for what was a short lived time plunging them back into their downward spiral of uncertainty.

A number of names are being batted around Deepdale, Club heroes like – Paul, Mckenna, David Beckham, Sean Gregan & Fleetwood Boss Graham Alexander.

@AaronHJFT96 - I'm a bit torn... I really want to start now haha! but at the same time FM14 does come out this month... might do this one on FM13...
hmm, i suggest you start it on fm14, it wont have enough time to get off the ground i dont think depending on when youre getting it though! so if youre getting it in about a month then start it on fm13 but if you get it when it comes out then wait a little longer:P
Gonna move it across now I think.. Add a few more updates as well I think.. :p
