A Tale of Two Seasons: Managers

This season is remarkably unlike the last in many ways, one of which is the ability of managers to keep their jobs. Last season, for example, we saw a slew of manager sackings including: Ian Halloway - Crystal Palace Paolo Di Canio - Sunderland Martin Jol - Fulham Malky MacKay - Cardiff Rene Mulensteen - Fulham Chris Hughton - Norwich David Moyes - Manchester United Michael Laudrup - Swansea Steve Clarke - West Brom Just to name a majority of them. This year we're already 11 games into the new Premier League season and we've not had a single one. This time last year Di Canio & Halloway were already gone. Grant it, Sunderland's 1 point in their opening 9 games probably was the big reason Di Canio got sacked, same with Halloway's departure on just 4 in the same amount of time, but QPR and Burnley are none the better to be honest. QPR & Burnely combine for a -24 goal difference and Burnely's scrappy 1-0 win at Hull is just their first of the season. May other teams look set to sack their managers if they were to choose so. Spurs dumped Andre Villas-Boas & Tim Sherwood who combined guided the club 6th and into Europe. They're currently 12th under Mauricio Pochettino. Last year the BBC helped dub football a "sack culture" after all the axings, but this season looks to be ready to set a record low if things are to stay the same. Almost a third of way the through and everyone's still as they came. Things will of course change but one thing is for sure, there will be less sackings this year than last it looks.
