Blackburn boss leads the sack race by a mile
HAS there ever been a Premier League manager under more pressure than Steve Kean?
Blackburn’s 2- 1 defeat against Bolton on Tuesday sparked more angry protests from Rovers fans, who during and after the game made no secret of their desire for Kean and club owners the Venky’s to leave Ewood Park.
The Lancashire side are rock bottom at Christmas and only West Brom have previously survived from that position in the Premier League era. But they had to get a new manager in first…
Here is our sack-race rankings – otherwise known as the Firing Line. GUIDING Fulham to their heaviest home defeat in 24 years is not how Jol would have liked to go into Christmas. While the Cottagers were not as bad as their 5- 0 loss to Manchester United suggests, their leaky defence is becoming a cause for concern. IT looks set to be one of those seasons for the Toffees. They are capable of pulling off a result that means they won’t be dragged into a relegation fight, but can’t string together a run that makes them competitive at the top. A trip to Sunderland next. PASSED to death by Manchester City who made their 3-0 win against the Potters look effortless. Stoke were never expected to get a result at the Etihad Stadium, but Pulis must be disappointed with the minimum fight his side put up. ARSENAL bounced back from defeat at Manchester City with a fine, if not fortunate, win at Aston Villa. The second-half of the season is poised for a battle with Tottenham, Chelsea and Liverpool for the Champions League spots… and maybe a trophy.
STEVE KEAN No 7: Martin Jol - Fulham No 13: David Moyes - Everton No 14: Tony Pulis - Stoke City
