Come on then, who will be the first League One manager to get the chop?

Robertson is already under a lot of pressure, so I wouldn't be overly surprised if it was him. No others, as far as i'm aware, are under pressure this early (and rightly so).

Due to our stupid fans and trigger finger happy chairman, it might be Robins.

That would be incredibly stupid though.

Highly unlikely - Smith, Edinburgh, Adkins, Hill, Mowbray, Saunders, Hasselbaink, Alexander, Page

Possibles - Parkinson, Dickov, Johnson, Kelly, Robins, Cooper, Brown, whoever's in charge of Wigna

Contenders:
Clark/Davis/Humes - teams doing badly, but expected to do badly.
Harris/Robertson - teams doing badly, expected to do at least reasonably.
Flitcroft - probably safe enough while the Churman is still enjoying their mutual in-house bullshitting tournament.

The favourite for me is Micky Mellon at Shrews - had several of his better players sold, and the board there may (unfairly) wanta scapegoat.

Brown won't get sacked. I'd say Humes don't think fans were happy about him staying on this season lose a few more he could go

Phil Parkinson is on the verge of signing a new contract, unfortunately.

Wouldnt surprise me if its kelly. Most fans believe the board royally fucked up appointing him in the first place and he hasnt improved that relationship over the past 4 months either. He seems to be managing from the "dummies guide to managing a football team" textbook. Everything is so predictable from what he says to the subs he makes.

We actually have one of the best squads in a few years but they aint performing for him

Not Adkins,

Wouldn't bet against the guy at Wigan if they stumble for a few games. The young and naive chairman apparently expects them to get over 100poibts this season.

Very early days yet but Shrews bought a hell of a lot of new players and have lost some decent ones. Mediocre start so he is my tip( Mellon ). Davis is untouchable as Dario's boy and Humes deserves bit of leeway after last years miracle escape, though looking at above comment the U's fans think otherwise. Page was given till the end of Sept by our nutty chairman to be in an acceptable position, so outside bet given remaining fixtures.

A few poor results could see Kelly under extreme pressure. A lot of fans seem to be against him already.

Neil McDonald will be sacked if he doesn't get a win within the next four games so Karl can use him as a scapegoat.

Thank goodness, it was like employing a gym teacher as manager. He had 0 clue and i suspect we could have had more players through our academy if he had not done that previously too. Now I would like an experienced manager in who has a clue about this league. No idea who is available though. Was going to sack off going again this season, hopefully a positive appointment will change that.

Evans will unfortunately be the favourite.

I said when Fergie was still here we should go for Edinburgh, but we left that too late and that's not an option now I guess!

Not Fergie and not Evans. That's my only thoughts right now.

Has Evans fallen out with the Rovrum board or something? Why would he drop down to League One?

He lives near here, is a self proclaimed fan of the club, good friends with Fry and MacAnthony and said himself as recently as May how he'd love to manage us one day.

Urgh.
