Who Has Underperformed The Most This Season?


 Share

Recommended Posts

I think almost a 1/3 of the way into the season is a fair time to start asking these questions, especially given what appears to be a trend in which the 1st manager sacked in a season takes longer than previously to get the boot.....

 

First off, it is NOT us.....the very fact that we were last season's OVERperformers and were tipped to go down, means that realistically we would be expected to finish 8-12th...

 

It's not arsenal or man utd, cos there fall from grace is largely a function of chelsea's dominance...

 

looking at the bottom half the RS have 2 games in hand and given their good european form have done ok so far.....

 

middlesborough have just been VERY inconsistent but again, the european schedule allows them some excuses....

 

most of the other sides in the bottom 3rd are pretty much where they would be expected to be....

 

so.......

 

the winners (losers) are.........

 

ASTON VILLA and that whiney prick o'leary should be packing his bags pretty soon!!!

 

(and to the fans of Wigan enjoy what it feels like to outperform and have so much to shout about.......we had a chance last season, and I hope their form continues throughout this campaign.....)

I think old "bulldog chewin a wasp face" Bruce will be under the most pressure

 

I said when we played them that the loosers would be relegated and I think the pressure will be very much on him now

he's a good looking bloke that :D:D

What surprised me is that all the clubs that went down last season, all stuck with their managers,

 

Ian Dowie (Palace), Mick McCarthy (Sunderland), and Nigel Worthington, (Norwich), but i think the latter is greatly at risk this season, unless he gets them going with a late run.

 

 

But if we are talking Premiership only TAKE YOUR PICK OF 3 OR 4................

 

Coleman, Perrin, Bruce, and if we give the baggies a good spankin next week, it could be Robson.

Er..sunderland haven't gone down yet!

 

I think that you meant Redknapp (southampton)

 

Anyway - underachievers award for me goes to.....David O'Leary at Villa....

 

They always tip themselves to be top of the table - but this year - they will be scrapping for points.

 

I would have liked to give the award to Mr Souness and the Skunks - but they seem to be picking off results at the moment.

 

First Managerial casualty of the season goes to...

 

Alain Perrin (Portsmouth)

 

closely followed by:

 

Steve Bruce (Brum)

 

 

That will be it I think...no more managers will get the boot - although Rafa benetieeeeez will move (by mutual consent) to Real Madrid.

You can see why they stuck with them, their respective chairmen/women know how difficult it was to get in the prem and stay in it with very limited funds available.

 

I can see why licker got mixed up as Sunderland stuck with McCarthy when they went down a couple of seasons ago

 

I think it would be a different story for Bruce, who has had pot loads of cash to spend, and hes spent it.

 

Dont like Birmingham, considering they keep banging on how big they are and how fantastic their supporters are, did you see how many empty seats where in the crowd when we played them. I suppose rowlo can give a bit more insight as he went. What is it like to go there?

 

Anyway, things can change all to quickly and WE are not out of the woods ourselves, although I am extremely confident we will keep moving in the right direction

villa,for as long as i've followed football have always seen themselves as a big club..now granted they won the euro cup back in the days when the english only had to enter it to win it,but there NOT a big team,so i dont see that they've underachieved tbh

I think Villa do see themselves as a big club and traditionally, they would but them selves in that bracket, but like us, the MONEY rollercoster never caught them on the up
