LVG slips closer to trapdoor and is now 1/3 favourite for the sack!

After the 'Special One' decided enough was enough, the odds on the sack race shifted again, to bring two Dutchmen closer to the unemployment line

It’s everyone’s nightmare, to be unemployed at Christmas, but for these managers, it could very well be the case, as gaffers at both top and bottom come under scrutiny

Louis Van Gaal 

Louis-Van-Gaal-II-840An exit from the Champions League, only nine goals at home all season, and NINE points off the top has pressure on Louis Van Gaal. Another shocking performance against Norwich led to more dropped points. The Red Devils have only won once in the last month With the United owners apparently monitoring Pep Guardiola, Ryan Giggs in the wings, and Mourinho now available, could one more bad result see LVG run out of time?

Remi Garde

You have to feel bad for the Frenchman. Installed in October after the disastrous start to the season by Tim Sherwood, Garde is already second favourite to be sacked, despite being less than two months into the job. Villa haven’t improved under him, picking up just two points from his six games, and they’re already eight points from safety. It could be too late for someone new to turn it around

Steve McClaren 

SteveMcClarenSteve McClaren should be off having Dutch lessons right now. A heavy 5-1 defeat to Crystal Palace appeared to be the end, and with matches against Liverpool and Spurs following, most fans would’ve expected a dismissal. Instead, back to back wins have fired Newcastle out of the bottom three (above Sunderland and Chelsea). But another loss could see the pressure heaped back onto his umbrella


That amazing victory for Norwich means that Alex Neil () has a slight stay of execution, and a little bit of breathing room at the bottom. Southampton are slowly being dragged towards the scrap, so Ronald Koeman ( )could be one to keep an eye on
