The new Premier League season is only weeks away so how many of the current Premier League managers will still be managing their club by the end of the season? Which team will go through the most managers?

Neil Warnock, Manuel Pellegrini and Javi Garcia are as good as gone imvho etc. Also dark horse for the sack is Nuno Espirito Santo, something I'm sure Abertawe will agree with.

I think Puel will be under a lot of pressure to deliver results with Leicester this season so he's one I reckon won't be there come the end of the season.

Aye Warnock & Nuno Santo are dead men walking. Dunno much about Garcia but his CV is pretty rubs and Watford haven't pulled up trees in the transfer market. Spam have spent dough so not too sure - would be nice if Pellegrini gets the push as it'll mean they're doing badly.

You've missed out one though mate. This season shall be the season that media darling Pochettino gets found out. Levy is obviously hesitant to sanction anymore expensive signings. Janssen, M'bida, Sissoko, Aurier, Moura, Llorente. All six signed since summer '16 and cost in excess of £120,000,000. What's that done for them? They look further away from challenging for the title or doing well in the CL tbh and those players have either been sent on loan or played bit part roles from the bench. If this was Mourinho that'd spent £120m on six failures he'd be getting pelted off the press & fans alike. He'll be gone by December.

I think Puel is a near-certainty. After the boost in form that occurred after his arrival last season, since then their form has been middling at best.
How about Mourinho, who is entering his usually fraught third season?

Puel might be a decent shout, he lacks the personality needed to gloss over poor results which seems to be a factor in sackings.
Saying that, he had no pre season and only Diabate in January is his player, so things might get better for him if he can shape the team. 3 signings made for the first 11 so far.
Gracia would probably be my pick. Depends on the expectation on Cardiff though.

Cuz when you lose a couple of games in a row the board will look at Nuno and be like this Nuno hasn't done shit as a manager so fuck relying on him to sustain revenue streams worth hundreds of millions - let's get Big Sam in till the end of the season.

Nothing dodgy here I'm afraid, been investigated and proved innocent of any false accusations :)
Dodgy because what's being done isn't for the good of the club more so a select few can line their pockets. Wake up - this will kill you as a club and they'll run off into the sunset absolutely wadded.

Some bookmakers now have Jose Mourinho as the favourite to be sacked first.
I never fully bought into the third season meltdown theory but you have to say things are shaping up well for an absolute explosion here.

It depends on Leicester's expectations.
Actually I think the team is strong enough to keep a quiet place between 10th and 13rd, so I don't see Puel so in dangerous.

I bet on Mark Hughes for the first sack of the season.

If the board don't yield to his demands for new players and his attempts at hypnotic suggestion fails then he will 'in all probability' spontaneously combust.

Not a chance.

Not because I think we'll do well next season, but it took our board 30 games to sack an absolute clown in Pellegrino last season, they're stubborn when it comes to admitting they've fucked up.
