Palace or The Hammers?

Does it only include sackings, or can we count resignations? If we are then the fat Spanish one might walk, seems pretty miffed with transfers and has form for acting the dick with owners, if he quickly concludes that just staying up will be a real problem he might jump to avoid being left with the blame.

Other than that I think Bilic too, he should get a little leeway with them playing all away games to start, but if he doesn't start getting results the fickle owners won't be too patient given the money spent and the quality of players now in their squad. On paper they should be a top half team now I think? Palace are trying to evolve from relegation scrappers to mid table runners, so I'd expect them to allow more time for FdB to change the style of play, etc. Plus I don't think Steve Parish is particularly knee jerk - often seems to keep faith with his chosen manager (bit like our Bill in that respect?) and seems to lose them by pissing them off as often as sacking them?

If I was going to bet, Bilic before mid November would get my money.

Jeff: That's not the way to win.
Kathie: Is there a way to win?
Jeff: There's a way to lose more slowly.

Sides that have sacked Allardyce have all regretted it I would suggest.

Yep, must be extremely irritating to spend millions buying off your manager, only to end up with even worse results. But it's also arguable that the ones who have sacked him have universally been judged to be club-fucking rich idiots.

Blackpool - sacked by Owen Oyston (while he was in prison!) who has since raped the club for their PL windfall
Newcastle - sacked by Mike Ashley (lovely chap isn't he) the footballing genius beloved by the Toon
Blackburn - sacked by chicken choppers who have since plunged the club into lower league hell
England - ok, they don't have 'owners', but the FA are pretty much the definition rich idiots who are happy to fuck over any club and all fans everywhere?

West Ham is borderline, since he wasn't sacked, his contract just wasn't renewed. He may have refused to stay if offered a new one, but even if you count that as a sacking then the 'rich idiot owners' clause still applies. For technical definitions of 'sacking' please refer to the "Jeremy Clarkson Wasn't Sacked" interpretation of business practice  :cheers:

@SANA_DR0 - great thread, but I have to ask how you win a race without automatically also coming first?  :tongue:

De Boer

Caught the last few minutes of the Sunday Suppliment and they reckon he might even be away before the international break is over.

Huge admission of failure by the board if they do that three games into the season.

You only needed to say either of:

"Who is going to win the sack race?" (because by default winning the sack race means you were the first sacked)
or
"Who will be sacked first?"

What you said just doesn't need the last word, I'm not always pedantic but in a thread title you see the oddity over and over again ;D

Looks like @Bluedylan and @SANA_DR0  called it right as it is being reported that De Boer has been sacked and will be replced by Roy Hodgson.

It's official, he's gone.

Should have put a bet on but my bookie of choice didn't have a market.

I remember I wanted him when we were looking for Roberto's successor. He looks fairly shite tbf.

Not necessarily the wrong decision in the longer term, yet it's pathetic to be deciding to sack the manager 4 games in shakeyheadman
