The turnover of Premier League Managers is never ending.

Seemingly all but the select few put on the media ‘at risk’ list if they lose a few matches in a row.

For Arsenal fans that is often one bad result that gets them calling for Arsene Wenger’s head yet again.

Wenger is by far the longest serving of the 20 current Premier League Managers, appointed over 21 years ago.

Next best are Eddie Howe and Sean Dyche, both appointed five years ago in October 2012, for Bournemouth and Burnley respectively.

Rafa Benitez was appointed only 19 months ago and yet he is the 11th longest currently serving.

In fact, in the time that Rafa has been at St James Park, Crystal Palace have had four different managers – Alan Pardew in charge in March 2016 and then Sam Allardyce, Frank de Boer and now Roy Hodgson taking it on.

With Palace still not having a point or goal to their name, Hodgson actually finds himself the bookies’ four favourite as the next to be sacked/leave, Koeman (Everton), Bilic (West Ham), and Shakespeare (Leicester) the three rated most likely.

      Only if the Fat Man leaves, he won’t put up with anymore schitt

      • Mark Spark

        Ive got a feeling a whole pile of schitt is on its way to newcastle just in time for the January transfer window.I havent liked Ashley for a long time but I am now convinced hes a very nasty vindictive person who doesnt forget anybody he thinks has crossed him

        • Peaky Magpie

          Hopefully somewhere down the line Fatman has a pile of schitt heading his way when he gets done for tax evasion.

            Quite possible,but rich people dont often go to prison,i can see a massive fine for NUFC though,hopefully not a points deduction

            ”I have very little involvement in the day to day running of the club” It’s those pesky employees again !

          Mark, You may be right because it has been too quiet from him lately.

          • Peaky Magpie

            Yes,plotting like a Bond villain sitting stroking Penfold’s baldy heed !!!

    Well done Clarko

    I don’t think Ashley has been particularly trigger happy in sacking during his tenure.

    He probably doesn’t like to pay compensation and prefers to try his luck on with running down contracts or getting away with constructive dismissal.

  • X,WHY,Y MAN.

    A whole 19 months wow !, It seems like a lifetime ago.
    Seriously though is this even worth the bother to write an article about ?
    When someone has been in charge of a club for as long as Arsene Wenger has then it might be worth something, Until then…

    I think it is disgusting the way managers are treated in general. They are sacked without regard to long contracts either because they didn’t get on with their club’s hierarchy or their club did not research their managerial style properly before recruitment. Then throw in lazy and vindictive players, undue fan pressure and sheer panic and you wonder why anyone in their right mind would want the job. Fortunately none of this applies to Rafa as the present ownership is soon to change!
