    Who’s on deck for the next sack?
    My money’s on “Super” Frankie Lampard at Everton. They escaped with their lives last season, barely escaping relegation. With a brand new state of the art 53,000 seat stadium rising at the Bramall-Moore Dock on the Mersey, they can ill afford (literally) to end up in the second tier. How many of those new seats be occupied for matches in the Champuonship?
    Brendan Rodgers still might beat Lampard to the exit. Leicester are not improving enough to be a fair bet to escape the drop, and Rodgers appears to have overstayed his welcome.
    David Moyes is not too far behind these two. West Ham is trending downward again after a couple of recent encouraging campaigns, and the Scot is in an up and down cycle, wash, rinse, repeat, that could portend his departure.

    Wait, Lampard's still at Everton? I thought he got fired weeks ago. Their board is incredibly patient or has few options.

    David Moyes may be moving up after today’s 2-nil home defeat to Brentford. They were impotent.

    There are a couple of names that have begun to warrant consideration for inclusion in the sacking pool discussion, and they’re both at big London clubs. First is Antonio Conte at Tottenham. Spurs have been, at best, pedestrian under the Italian, at worst, drawing or losing to teams they should not be at home. And at their new palace of a home, that’s definitely not going to fly. Conte’s had what most would consider adequate time to make Spurs more consistent: still, they are fifth in the table. But the performances have soured, and the Kane-Son magic has hit the skids. Losing at home 2-nil to an improved but average Villa side shouldn’t be happening.
    Graham Potter has not lit a fire under scum off of the usual shot from a manager change. They look worse than Spurs. Scum’s new owners aren’t quick triggers like Abramovich was, but they screwed up tossing Thomas Tuchel so prematurely. They’re worse under Potter.

    Unfortunately Jesse Marsch is moving up the list. Leeds are 0-3-4 in their last seven and are hurtling toward the relegation zone. In fact, they’re tied with Everton on points (18) and are above the Toffees on goal difference (-8 to -12).
    Wouldn’t be all bad though. U.S. Soccer could put the Berhalter mess to bed and hire Marsch to get us ready for the big show here in just over three years. But…Leeds, although only down a goal to nil, showed no ability to muster a last ditch assault on the Forest goal today down the stretch. In fact, they could barely keep adequate possession to even begin to try to salvage a much needed point. I don’t recall Keylor Navas having to make any saves in the last 20 minutes or so. Leeds had 71% possession and 4 shots on goal to Forest’s two…yeah. Not good.

    Leeds supporters can be vicious and folks in northern England aren't all that thrilled about Yanks in their neighborhood, so there might be pressure from them to de-yankify.

    Having said that, they're playing good football and getting more solid by the match. If they fire Jesse, they'll be relegated for certain. We'll see.

    I will be honest and say even though it is awesome that our talented Americans in Adams, BA,and McKennie are getting a shot in the Prem, I wish with every fiber in my being that they played for another club than Leeds; from my experience they are a bunch of arrogant losers who yes might love their team, but also are despised by basically everyone else.

    And yes to your point, I am quite sure a fair majority of their fans do not like the American takeover if you will at all and some I am sure still sleep every night with ther Bielsa dolls.

    I want the American trio and even Marsch to do alright so as to to stop any Yank bashing from their fans, but hope Leeds themselves collapse.

    I think Jesse will get a bit more time, but again with their fans, won't take long before the pitch forks come out either.

    My thoughts too. I'm still bitter about how they treated Lucas Piazon when he broke his foot there back in 2017. I want to root against them but all those US players on the roster make it harder!
