    How can we re-ignite the interest?

    Which manager is favourate to get the sack first next season?

    I'll start by saying Rafa is going to spend 40m of his war chest on Eto and he will be a complete failure.

    So Rafe is favourate to get the sack in my 'opinion'

    Mourinho. Before the season has even started if they can convince someone to take the job

    I think Mourinio has so many talented players that his squad will keep him competitive for most of the season.
    At the end of the season he will proably get the boot if he doesn't win the league.

    I think Ambramovich does not want to sack him because (for once) he does not want to waste money and pay off the remaining 3 or 4 years of his contract.
    Probably because Morhinio seemed to mock him on TV and basically said "sack me, I don't care you'll give me millions".

    Being Honest I think the candidates in order are:-

    Lee - Manchester City
    Curbishly - West Ham
    Bruce - Birmingham
    Sanchez - Fulham
    Benitez - Liverpool (Its his 4th year, he has a reputation of provoking club owners in the past and Eto is not the answer).

    Dario Gradi will NOT be sacked, EVER, however badly Crewe do.

    (It helps to own the club, virtually)

    Steve Bruce has been under-performing for years. I'm amazed he's still in his job.

    What are ye talking about?

    Steve Bruce got Birmingham promoted, and Hughes is doing really well at a very limited club. Look at his excellent signings...Bentley, McCarthy, Gamst Pederson.
