By this point 4 Premier League Managers had been sacked last season – Common sense setting in?

2 years ago

Has the mood changed in terms of Premier League Managers getting the early chop.

By this point last season, four of those who had started the 2017/18 season in charge had already been fired.

Palace amazingly sacking Frank de Boer after only a month, with then Shakespeare (Leicester), Koeman (Everton) and Slaven Bilic (West Ham – a year ago today exactly) all following.

In total 10 Premier League Managers were sacked during last season, with West Brom getting rid of two during the campaign…

11 Sept 2017 Frank de Boer (Palace)

17 October 2017 Craig Shakespeare (Leicester)

23 October 2017 Ronald Koeman (Everton)

6 November 2017 Slaven Bilic (West Ham)

20 November 2017 Tony Pulis (West Brom)

20 December 2017 Paul Clement (Swansea)

6 January 2018 Mark Hughes (Stoke)

21 January 2018 Marco Silva (Watford)

12 March 2018 Mauricio Pellegrino (Southampton)

2 April 2018 Alan Pardew (West Brom)

We are now in the 13th week of the season and still no changes, has common sense finally set in? Clubs realising that changing bosses mid-season rarely improves results and often does the opposite, as well as big compensation payouts?

This is how the Premier League table now currently looks:

No surprise after last night’s defeat at Huddersfield, that Fulham boss Slavisa Jokanovic is odds on (1/2) favourite to be the next PL manager to go.

Next up is Mark Hughes at 11/4, though a big call for Southampton as it would then mean they’d had four different managers in the past 18 months.

Fulham let Jokanovic choose the players they spent over £100m on this summer, so would it really make sense to get rid of him so early, especially as he won them promotion less than six months ago?

Showing how strange it all is at the moment, the next two in the betting are managers at clubs in the top seven presently, Pochettino and Mourinho on 14/1.

It is also an indication that you have some very secure and popular managers at the bottom of the Premier League table and managers at clubs who were expected to be down there.

Rafa Benitez on 20/1, Warnock 16/1 despite being in the relegation zone, same with David Wagner at 40/1.

Next Premier League Manager to go:

1/2 Slavisa Jokanovic

11/4 Mark Hughes

14/1 Mauricio Pochettino

14/1 Jose Mourinho

16/1 Neil Warnock

20/1 Rafa Benitez
