    really?

    i can't see anyone getting the sack until the end of the season tbh.

    rafa should but probably won't go. wigan, bolton and west ham all good candidates to be looking for a new manager come june.

    Yeah it won't be long before Megson's looking for a new role to fail in...

    I hope it is not Benitez.

    He is the answer to my prayers of the Poo falling to the Coca-Cola League.

    I agree, all teams seem to have at least a half decent and credible manager at the moment, and no sight of a Tony Adams, Paul Ince or Alan Shearer. It's hard to see an obvious contender. A team really has to hit a poor run of form from here for a chairman to panic. I can't see Zola, Grant or Brown going. At a bit of a guess I'll go for Stoke htting a poor run and Pulis being shown the door...

    You and trev are probably right about Rafa, but Adams and Ince as decent managers?

    he's calling them crap managers... hence alan sheep shearer being in the same sentence.

    i'd say that's a good shout. maybe megson as well, i can see bolton going down. can't see burnley or wolves having enough to stay up but you wouldn't think either manager would get the sack.

    Pfft. Contradicting yourself to cover the maximum amount of possibilities is not something to be proud of, in my book.

    It might get you a job as a sports commentator, though.

    meh, i forgot how much the fans at bolton hated megson, i'm sure that was a factor in his sacking.
