Life comes at you fast. With the 2021/22 season well in the rear-view mirrors, Paddy’s eager-beaver traders have fired the starting pistol on the 2022/23 sack race.
WELCOME TO PADDY POWER NEWS!
Xisco Munoz (remember him?) took the title last season with Watford living up to all the stereotypes and going through three managers in a season on the way to relegation.
But with The Hornets out of the mix, who’s pulling the trigger first this time around? Well, let’s see who Paddy’s traders think could win the sack race at this (very) early stage.
Natural-born winner Frank Lampard just about dragged Everton to safety last season but he’s high in the running to be the first to leave his job in the forthcoming campaign. The club’s still a mess and surely no amount of one-man good cop, bad cop can turn that around.
Yes, Ralph Hasenhuttl is still at Southampton and yes, Southampton are still in the Premier League. The Saints have just been middling along, only popping into the general consciousness when they take an absolute hammering. Will Ralph pay for the mediocrity or is it steady as she goes at St Mary’s?
The jury is still out on Leeds boss Jesse Marsch. It was always going to be tough to succeed Marcelo Bielsa but he did keep the Yorkshire outfit in the top flight, just about, last term. It has been hard to work out what Marsch’s game plan is so if they get off to a slow start he could be a prime candidate.
Leicester boss Brendan Rodgers started to come under real pressure last season as his Foxes underwhelmed domestically and in Europe. He does seem to have a bit of a sell by date so he might need a fast start to keep the doubters quiet.
Fulham manager Marco Silva did guide The Cottagers back into the Premier League at the first time of asking but keeping them there will be even tougher. How long will the west London yo-yo boys stick with Silva before rolling the dice?
South London rhymester Scott Parker is back in the Premier League and that can only mean one thing; he’s in the running for the sack race. Last seen on Match Of The Day sending Fulham down in 2021 he’s back with Bournemouth and preparing for what could be a very challenging season.
