    I have to say it feels pretty great to contemplate which one of the underperforming managers of Everton, United or Spurs will be gone first – while sitting in first place ourselves. Steve Bruce, Nuno Espirito Santo, Watford's Flores, Hasenhuttl and maybe even Emery could also be in the conversation, depending on the next few results.

    Silva has spent most and is failing miserably. I don’t even know why they tried so hard to get him in the first place.

    Back in the day, when they were good and we struggled to be good consistently, we used to always get results.
    I hope we do thrash them, but it wouldn't surprise me if it's 0-0!

    Be typical. I just hope he’s still in charge for the game

    Exactly this.

    I think the roles have very much reversed, whilst they're much bigger & have more cash to spend, the parallels with us in decline are clear.

    In the same way I'd expect the players & fans to throw everything at this to prove a point, you can almost guarantee it'll be way harder for us than any other side they play.

    I don’t think they can sack Bruce.

    They struggled for candidates in the summer. Who would go there now?

    Be funny if the first two sackings were at Watford

    Steve Bruce will stir his barcodes into a sound victory against United, dragging Everton into the relegation zone and leaving United in that group of mid-table strugglers who are at risk of being drawn into a relegation fight. At this stage it will be like the WWI mobilisation situation, with the machinery of managerial sacking beginning to turn at United and Everton. However, Everton are exceptionally well practiced at this and will complete the task well before United finally, and inevitably appoint the Giggsy/ Phil Neville dream team.

    I want us to get Ole & Poch sacked.

    I remember reading we have gotten more managers sacked than any other team in England, I'd love to add those two to the list in the next few weeks.

    Poch would have gotten the sack first if he hadnt signed a new contract.

    Silva will go first

    It would be very in-character if they brought Gracia back

    In fairness he did well at Watford and at Hull before that.  What surprised me was how determined Moshiri was to continue pursuing the guy.

    Just invested a tenner on Utd to get relegated at 150/1.  Would  be a shame to miss out financially if they hang on to Ole until it's too late.

    I vote for Silva. To spend so poorly and be in relegation zone after 8 games is just awful. OGS is probably safe, for now, because Woodward is clueless, will probably blame it on the injuries, and may not want to look like a fool by firing him so quickly after giving him that 3-year contract. As for Pochettino, he's been there so long that it may be more of a mutual agreement at the end of the season than a flat out firing. With no big club openings at the moment i don't see him walking out too soon in the season.
