Wednesday night has seen Paul Clement become the sixth Premier League manager to lose their job this season.

Swansea Chairman Huw Jenkins claiming ‘we couldn’t leave it any longer’.

The Swans play their 19th Premier League match of the season, a real relegation six pointer at home to Crystal Palace on Saturday.

No doubt they will be hoping for another ‘bounce’, having brought in Paul Clement 11 months ago and he took them from the relegation zone to 15th by the end of the season.

Interesting to see who they bring in, with Pardew, Allardyce and Moyes having already picked up jobs, no doubt Steve McClaren will be wondering…

The six sackings so far:

11 September – Frank de Boer (Crystal Palace)

17 October – Craig Shakespeare (Leicester City)

23 October – Ronald Koeman (Everton)

6 November – Slaven Bilic (West Ham)

20 November – Tony Pulis (West Brom)

20 December – Paul Clement (Swansea City)

This makes it four of the bottom seven clubs have now changed bossed, with Bournemouth, Stoke and Newcastle the exceptions.

Newcastle host Swansea on Saturday 13 January at St James Park.

Swansea Chairman Huw Jenkins:

“We felt we couldn’t leave it any longer and needed to make a change to give the best chance of an uplift.

“We had three different manager last season and as a result we all wanted to give Paul as much time as possible to turn things around.

“Paul has been at the club for 12 months and what he achieved in the second half of last season to keep us in the top flight was a tremendous feat.

“For that, and his effort and commitment this season, it goes without saying that the club thanks him for his work, together with Nigel and Karl.”

    who`s next, Hughes at Stoke, Bournemouth won`t sack Howe.
    Rafa`s safe as long as the takeover is hanging in the balance, i think by the New Year it`ll be a yes or a no on that. i think it`ll be a no

    • Peaky Magpie

      Stoke have both WBA & us coming up,Hughes future will depend massively on the results of these 2 games.Agree about Howe.

    • Rich Lawson

      Bound to be Hughes just before we play them,new manager and a bounce,ffs !!

  • Leicester Mag

    Yet another F in stupid decision made by greedy incompetent owners. Seems Ashley doesn’t have a monopoly in that respect. Stayed up then sold best players and now bottom of league. The arrogance to expect a different outcome is breathtaking.

    • Kneebotherm8

      They did sell sigurdsson after a protracted effort by Everton,which obviously unsettled the player,but they did spend a fair bit when he left,you can’t keep a player when he’s determined to move.

    • Tomb

      Clement achieved 29 points in the last 19 games of last season. Worked miracles.

  • Mitros gotta start

    Hopefully they knee jerk and take pulis off the market to stop fatty getting any ideas

    • Kneebotherm8

      Totally agree.

    • Peaky Magpie

      Yes,I thought Pulis was in line for the Wales job but Bellamy appears to be front runner for that,he’s now got to be favourite for Swansea.However on that note he has a 100 % record of never been relegated and I would like to think Swansea would finish below us this season.

      You can only hope.

  • TheFatController

    Surely, based on PL precedent, their next manager will be experienced in the PL.

    Experienced in underachievement, but experienced nonetheless….
