7 is a low amount of changes at this stage.At start of this thread in, I think, 2016 the creator posted a list of clubs with their managers at start of season.
Can't see it this season. So the list below is of current managers. Most were in situ at start of season but it seems Carlisle, Colchester, Hartlepool, Newport, Oldham, Scunthorpe & Stevenage did all have a change.
I'll leave it to others to remind us of previous manager's names at start of season (because I cannot remember them).

Apart from his 10 month scouting mission in Scotland Micky Mellon has been at Tranmere since October 2016.Looks like with the exception of Adams on that list pretty much everyone else is relatively secure. In Adams case it just looks a bad fit. Maybe Taylor at Walsall but I doubt that any time soon.
Simon Weaver at Harrogate has probably got the most secure job in football. Helps when your dad is the owner
Are you maybe being harsh though on Jackett? Like us you had virtually a month plus wiped out due to covid and postponed games (you could see the gulf in quality between our first meeting and the one last month) and as with Carlisle in similar circumstances last season it can massively disrupt form and knock you back.Been told that our board in the short term will be giving Jackett every chance of turning our form around. This is likely to be another 4-6 weeks at least IMO, after tomorrow we do have 6 winnable fixtures after that.
Injuries and Covid have hit us hard, no doubt about that, but poor squad planning from our board as well as inexperienced midfield signings are now really hurting us.
Kenny is gonna need to get a lot more out of what he has though, because on Saturday the players especially in the first half, gave up.
Possibly yes, it’s not a total disaster yet and not all his fault, Covid certainly did and continues to give us issues.Are you maybe being harsh though on Jackett?

We’ve took weeks to start looking back to normal again (and as yet that’s arguably only one game so may have been a flash in the pan).
Harrogate could fall back into the regionals and Dad wouldn't sack ickle Simon.
I remember people calling for Weaver's head when we were in the NLN together about 8 years ago.
He's probably on a very good wage with them for this level of football I'd imagine, it'd have to a very decent league 1 side to tempt him away from such a cushty jobI wonder if Weaver has had interest from other league clubs since they were promoted. He is doing a very good job in my opinion.
If he had interest, you wonder whether he would be able to breakaway from his dad and take on a new challenge with a bigger club?
