    It's gonna be Mark Hughes.

    Already under pressure from his fans, lost one of his best creative players and his summer signings consist of Darren Fletcher and Zouma (who will do well eventually)

    They face City, United and Arsenal early on as well as trips to Everton and West Brom (Pulis loves playing stoke)

    You can get 4/1 on him ATM. Anyone else got a prediction?

    Ronald Koeman. Rooney will fail, Klaassen will fail, he will be blamed and will get the sack after boxing day.

    Bilic, another terrible start in that stadium with better players and he'll be kicked out within a few weeks.

    Wait and see. Newly promoted clubs don't have any loyalty in recent years. Staying up is more important to them than showing faith in the managers who brought them up. If they're doing bad around November (as you'd expect), he could easily be gone by Christmas.

    Bilic is a good shout. But I say Gerrard gets the sack as academy manager...Im sure this is how it works.

    Chances of conte to leave is more if things don't go well. However, I will go with bilic.

    Bilic - West Ham will start terribly
    Hughes - seemed to be under pressure last season


    Rafa will most likely resign

    Swansea manager, Clement. They're notorious for sacking managers despite our media always telling us how "well the club is run" which I suppose has some truth in it considering since Swansea were promoted to the PL, they've never been relegated.

    Conte doing a Mourinho. It's bound to happen.

    It would also be hilarious.

    Hopefully Dyche. But Bilic and Hughes are more likely. Conte also, if things go the way I expect them to.

    I think Bilic is actually a really good manager, but he just looked broken last season. I would go for him as the first sacking though I wouldnt be surprised to see one of 3 or 4 managers quit beforehand.

    Klopp I think, can already smell the meltdown after they lose Coutinho.

    Ronald Koeman.

    I reckon, given Everton's early fixtures, they're gonna have a shambolic start to the season. That Spanish striker they signed would be good, but I can see Rooney playing up front more than him and we all know how that's gonna turn out.

    Others have made good suggestions too, I could definitely see Bilic, Hughes being under pressure from the first whistle.

    He might be the first departure but surely that will come in the form of a resignation rather than a firing.

    Probably De Boer. Don't rate him that highly.
