Shrewsbury, a League One struggler, terminates Premier League cult hero for overseeing worst attack in entire EFL

Introduction to this article:
Former Premier League star Matt Taylor has been sacked as Shrewsbury boss after a disappointing run of results for the League One side. The decision comes after a 2-1 defeat to Peterborough, leaving Shrewsbury in 19th place in the table.

Shrewsbury’s Struggles

Shrewsbury’s poor performance on the pitch has been evident, with the team having the worst attack in the EFL, scoring only 18 goals in 28 games. This lack of offensive firepower has contributed to the team’s recent run of seven losses in its last eight matches.

Club Statement

The club issued a statement announcing Taylor’s dismissal, acknowledging his professionalism and integrity during his tenure at the club, but explaining that the decision for a change was made to improve results and performances. Assistant head coach Marcus Bignot also left the club alongside Taylor.

Taylor’s Career

Taylor, who previously managed Walsall and served as a caretaker gaffer for Swindon, has also had experience managing Tottenham’s Under-18s. As a player, he featured for several Premier League clubs, including Luton, Portsmouth, Bolton, West Ham, Burnley, and Northampton, winning promotion to the top-flight with both West Ham and Burnley.
