Knee jerk reaction and a bad move imo
The lack of consistency has probably been the final nail, but I put that down to the players/captain etc more than the coach.
1st Mistake was taking the captaincy off Lynch and giving it to Ellis (probably an integral part of the Ellis deal).
Ellis was missing at the start of the season and took long enough to get into the swing when he did return, without worrying about the responsibility of captaincy.
The abject failure of Westerman (or Revolving Door as I liked to call him) for 90% of the season (although I believe played out of position to make best use of his talents).
Holdsworth's headaches and injury to O'Meeley at a crucial time also didn't help.
O'Meeley was having his best season for us since he arrived and certainly put the oomph into Hull's attack.
So Gentle can feel hard done by and the new proposed coaching set up doesn't inspire me with any confidence at all
