‘Should never have been appointed in the first place’ – These Cambridge fans react to Joe Dunne sacking

Less than seven months into his job as Head Coach of Cambridge United, Joe Dunne has been relieved of his duties.

The former Colchester boss has endured a tough time this season with injuries, but the board have decided in the wake of recent results it was time to get rid.

The U’s are 21st in the table, just one win above the drop zone and were recently dumped out of the FA Cup by Guiseley, going 4-0 down before fighting back to 4-3.

They have lost three of their last nine matches, winning three in a row at the end of October, but the board have still decided enough is enough.

It isn’t a move the appears to be universally popular with the U’s fans. They’re suspicious of the backing Dunne had, pointing to the need for a complete clear out once former boss Shaun Derry left. Instead, Dunne made do with a vast amount of the squad, adding only a few faces in the summer.

They’re now on the search for yet another manager after 12 damaging months both for the club, and for Dunne himself.

He’s a selection of responses the Cambridge fans have been giving on Twitter this morning.
