    Brendan may still have been at the club if he had shown some bottle with the TC

    Allowing himself to be underminded was the start of his swift demise. Everyone knew he had real say with the TC.

    Players and fans quickly lost faith in his inane bullshit.

    It ought to be next manager to leave (neutral term to cover sacking and resignations). Wenger won't be sacked but he might resign. However, if he does he won't go before the end of the season.

    My money on next person to leave (probably sacked) remains Moyes.

    While I suspect the winning choice here is Moyes, I've gone for a slightly more left-field option of Karanka, on the basis I think they had genuine ambitions of staying up and I get the impression he's not terribly popular there.

    Moyes is likely to make it to the summer - then depending on whether they've survived (again!!!), he will stay or go. Can't polish a turd - Sunderland could do with supporting someone like Moyes to try and actually stabilise the club. I'm sure most Sunderland fans would be happy with continuous mid table seasons as Moyes got out of Everton a few years a go - although there is a question of whether he can manage to do that again.

    I think Arsene will be allowed to see the season out - it would be a massive middle finger to Wenger if they sack him after all the success he did manage to bring Arsenal over the years. Lets hope they keep any news of his future under wraps. Announce that he's retiring before the end of the season, and every match could turn into hurrah for Wenger and they could go on a run.

    Bilic is the only other one on the list that I think really has to fight to keep his job.

    After Leicester's treatment of Ranieri and Chelsea's treatment of di Matteo I'd believe anything because there are no depths to which EPL owners won't plumb any more.

    True, but a thread titled "Left the club either by dismissal, resignation, or terminating his contract via mutual consent race" doesn't exactly roll off the tongue.

    I read a blog last week that suggested he had all the charm of the angry Mourinho without any of the cleverness.

    I always thought he would be the one to decide when to walk away from Arsenal, but seeing how they are crumbling from the inside in the last few weeks I would be suprised if he is able to see out the season

    I always thought that, but they are risking imploding in spectacular fashion. If they were to get knocked out of the FA Cup by Lincoln and were to fall behind Utd I think the board would panic. Especially with how antsy the fans are at the moment.

    If as I suspect Sunderland go down, Moyes will be next. I can't see anyone else going between now and the end of the season. If there is to be someone, it'll be Moyes.

    Middlesborough may get itchy feet though I reckon we won't see any before the end of the season now.

    You're right about itchy feet. Karanka has "Gone!"

    That is a shame - Boro really look to me like a well-drilled side with Championship-level talent, even more so than Burnley. Karanka will do well somewhere I expect.

    Just remembered who their next opponents are. Fingers crossed for new/caretaker manager bounce!

    Karanka gets the boot and according to Sky Sports the bust up with Downing before the FA cup game at Man City is the reason he is gone.
    Middlesbrough could've at least made up a decent story instead of an argument with Downing of all people to get rid of him.

    Fairly sure a fight between Downing and Karanka would go about as well for Stewie as it did for Loki against the Hulk lol

    Personally think Karanka sacking is harsh as hes done well there,some clubs see themselves above their station,hope theyre doomed now.

    To be fair, he sounds like a bit of a nightmare. Had a go at the fans, at his players, and apparently he stormed off the training ground one day and didn't return for a week, in which time his assistant had to run things. You might be able to get away with stuff like that when you're doing well, but when results take a turn for the worse...

    They've also only scored two league goals in 2017 - and we thought our form was bad this year - and over the season so far have scored less than Harry Kane, who's spent seven or eight weeks injured.
