I personally think it will be LVG or Rodgers considering the amount of money both of them have spent.

Before I vote, I'm going to guess that Rodgers is in the lead. I'm going to check now.

Edit: I was wrong, and I subconsciously voted Rodgers without thinking. Right now, I'm the only one.

Pochettino for me, no particular reason other than the fact he's with Tottenham.

Martinez....i don't think everton will do well, the team hasn't improved and if they lose stones to chelsea they will ship goals. Very hard season ahead.

More obvious shot would be the watford manager, if he last to start of the season

We actually only sacked one manager last season TBF.

2 quit - one for health reasons and Jokanavic left because a new contract couldn't be agreed..

I cannot see anyone being sacked that soon unless they start really badly..

Maybe Mclaren or Bilic though as they will be under pressure from the start.

Martinez as an outside bet. They haven't really done anything in the transfer market and they have a horrible first 10 games where they're away to Southampton, Spurs, Swansea, West Brom and Arsenal. They're also home to Watford, City, Chelsea, Liverpool and United.

You'd say the easiest games there are away to a Pulis West Brom and then Watford on the opening day. I can't see many other easy opportunities for points so I reckon they'll be bottom 7 after the first 10, then if signs don't get better, Kenwright may just decide to push the panic button.

Likelihood is others will go before him but could be worth a fiver when his odds are out at 16s and 20s in places.

Ofcourse Martinez will have the added pressure of not having the excuse that Europa league football gives mangers for poor form.

However Everton did back Moyes during his bad spells.

While Ranieri seems an obvious choice and leads the way, let's not forget just how long a bad spell Leicester went on and Pearson wasn't booted even when it looked like we were doomed. Bottom in November and didn't get the boot until, erm, he kept us up. So if Ranieri does absolutely fucking abysmally, it might be in his best interests if he wants to keep his job.

Pearson seems like the sort of bloke that would follow you for weeks before putting a bag over your head, burying it in the sand like an ostrich and having his way with you. I wouldn't have the bottle to sack him either.

Stones cost us goals last season, Mccarthy leaving would be the one that would cost us.

Just saying like.
