Inspired by this thread on SkySports, I thought I'd start my own Annual 'Who's For The Sack' post.
The SkySports punters are throwing out predictable names like Lawrie Sanchez (doubtful - I think he's bought fairly well this summer), Billy Davies (unlikely - Derby aren't expecting to stay up) and Roy Keane (more likely to resign than be sacked).
However, two names do stand out as likely candidates for the boot.
As we are so frequently reminded, the Premiership is about quality. And, if you don't have that, you are doomed.
So, step forth Chris Hutchings of Wigan Athletic and 'Little' Sammy Lee of Bolton Wanderers and explain yourselves.
Your signings this summer are scarily poor. Here are Bolton's (stop me when you recognise any of these names) :
If I was Bolton chairman Phil Gartside, I would be worried. These are not the players to get Bolton back into Europe.
I can see Sammy Lee being shown the door just after Christmas.
As for Chris Hutchings, well, I've blogged about his signings fairly recently, so I'm going to have a go at Wigan's Chairman Dave Whelan instead.
Maybe if you had taken more than about 12 minutes to choose your new manager, you wouldn't end up with a squad that includes Titus Bramble. Then you wouldn't need to sack the manager 8 games into the new season.
