Seven brutal managerial sackings - like Tony Adams at his son's fifth birthday party
Scott Parker not getting a chance to recover from Bournemouth's 9-0 defeat against Liverpool - Daily Star Sport has taken a look at eight of the most brutal sackings in history. READ MORE: Scott Parker sacked by Bournemouth after record 9-0 thumping by Liverpool In terms of their most recent result - Parker is one manager who can't have any complaints about his dismissal until looking at the bigger picture.The former England midfielder left Fulham to take over at a relegated side in the form of the Cherries and guided them back to the Premier League with automatic promotion in his first season.Were Bournemouth right to sack Scott Parker? Give us your thoughts in the comments section below.Having beaten Aston Villa, Bournemouth have only lost to Manchester City, Arsenal and Liverpool, two of which were away from home.Although it might well have been his comments about the ambition at the club that got him the sack, Ralph Hasenhuttl has proved that 9-0 defeats are not always terminal.Tony Adams was dismissed from his role as Portsmouth manager back in 2009 - and informed via phone call while at his son's fifth birthday party.Adams left the club 16th in the table having won just four of his 22 matches in charge and falling out with executive chairman Peter Storrie.Adams told The News of getting the call at his Cotswold home: "I said to Peter: 'I’m not going to drive all the way there for you to tell me directly I haven’t got a job any more'."It’s kind of what I wanted anyway, it was only a matter of time." Gus Poyet found out about his sacking by Brighton and Hove Albion while covering Spain's Confederations Cup match with Nigeria live on BBC Sport.
