I think late November is the best time to consider a change…. Allows for the upcoming transfer window and gives enough time in the season to ensure safety.

It’s never the players is it?

What is going to be certain is some teams will do better than others. It could be the manager is doing their absolute best but no board will sack all the players.

Sir Alex was allegedly on the brink once upon a time, who knows what would have happened if he had been sacked?

Timing, for me depends on a couple factors. The dressing room and fans. If a manager loses both it's basically curtains.

I would always go back to the inital interview. What are the plans? Are they short term/long term?

If it's long term unless you're having an horrendous amount of results, managers deserve time.

Sadly, patience isn't installed in modern society
