Next Premier League Manager to be sacked.
Mark Hughes 6/5,
Chris Hughton 10/1,
Brendan Rodgers 25/1,
Paul Lambert 40/1.
It’s reached that time, when chairmen start to experience a hair-trigger reaction to the teams start to a season. They often rush to judgement and issue a Sir Alan Sugar style “YOUR FIRED” to their manager.
You may notice we have omitted the odd manager of clubs wallowing at the bottom of the table. But as these are clubs with no realistice expectation of survival due to their recent promotion, we can’t see their managers taking the walk of shame just yet.
Mark Hughes has this week received the dreaded vote of confidence and is rightly the favourite to go. But he managed to save them from relegation last season and that could be the only thread that is attaching him to the manager’s seat.
Second season syndrome appears to have well and truly set in at Norwich and a change in manager has done nothing to help. Whilst it may be a bit harsh to part ways with Chris Hughton at this stage, if results and points do not improve then the board may have no other option but to look elsewhere.
Brendan Rodgers may be at the beginning of a whole new building project and the American owners may be prepared to afford him all the time he needs. But fan power can speak volumes and if he doesn’t start to improve on their points tally, it could be time for another change at Anfield.
Another new manager under pressure is Paul Lambert, having had a good season with Norwich last year. Lambert was seen as the man to clean up the mess left by Alex McLeish, but after a poor start to the season it appears he may be on thin ice, as Randy Lerner may not be as willing to tolerate the poor results he endured last season.
Our Verdict: Mark Hughes
But Lambert might be worth a punt as well with a very tempting 40/1.
