    I don't see one for the Premier League so who's next? Got to be Rodgers right if Leicester lose today? I've already shared my concerns about our owner's notorious impatience, I can only hope given the backing he's given Coops he will give him time to get it right, but realistically in my heart I know he's in big trouble if we don't pull a win out of the next two :(

    So discuss away etc

    Rodgers. Seems to be angling for it.

    Nah, I reckon barring an absolute disaster that he'll get the season at least, to be judged.

    If they pull off a win today, they'll be 3 points off the top. Not exactly a bad start.

    Rodgers the standout candidate at the moment but Gerrard and Cooper will be in trouble if they don't pick up wins soon.

    Technically Gary O'Neil could be the next to be removed but he doesn't really count.

    Cooper would be extremely harsh, weren't they bottom half/relegation zone and struggling when he took over last season?

    Actually just checked? Says they were stone cold bottom of the Championship when he took over 12 months ago? would be a total travesty if he were to be sacked without being given a fair go of this season.

    Villa showed huge improvement yesterday against City, maybe they've turned the corner and saved his (Gerrard's) job.

    Rodgers on the otherhand seems to have lost the plot, taken a real decent Leicester side that were top 6/8 material and has them in free fall.

    I think Liverpool fans are scared that Ten might actually get United back to new heights.

    They're scared.

    SCARED!!

    Naturally, he's won every game against them and they don't like it. ;)

    Everyone's right if Coops gets the can it would be a disgrace from where he found us. I'd be joining on pile on in condemning our owner if he makes that call

    Your owner shouldn't be surprised if Forest don't stay up you can't fix matches over here like he does back home.

    He's still got all 4 though. Tuchels already got one off and others are rattling.

    Yeah probably will be Tuchel that new owner seems a bit impulsive. Might settle down now the window is shut though.

    Would be incredibly harsh but their owner is a nutjob who's going to expect results from his £160m outlay.

    Forest fans are already talking about him being under pressure, which is mental, but welcome to the modern game.

    100%. Literally.

    Lies!!

    Would be a shady move.

    I think he will be. He's another Jose, starts causing issues after the 2nd season or performance just goes.

    early doors, of course, but if brighton finish the season strong, then surely potter is due a step up.
