Your selections must come from the top 4 divisions in England and Scotland.

You can only nominate a new Joker when your current Joker leaves their post.

You must have selected a manager at least a week before they leave to gain points, and short term/caretaker appointments are not valid for selection.

Club websites will be used to confirm that a manager has left.



1 bonus point if one of your picks is replaced by Sam Allardyce, David Moyes, Malky Mackay, or a French or Spanish manager that has never managed in England or Scotland.

5 bonus points if one of your picks is replaced by Sol Campbell, any Neville or Robbie Savage.

Picks must be submitted by 19:00 on Friday 3rd August.

Anyone entering after then but before midnight on 31st August will start on -5 points, after that new entrants will either start on 0 points or 10 points behind the leader, whichever is lower.

Do you get points if your pick leaves their post for another job?

Lettersandnumbersonly - 29 Jul 2018 16:19:05 (#4 of 50)

Yes departure via poaching counts.

I see you've resisted the temptation to award DeadPool points for any terminal departures

Not many lower leagues or Scottish yet....

Hmmmm

Zugunruhe1 - 30 Jul 2018 18:24:26 (#14 of 50)

EPL is where it's at if you're seeking managerial changes. There were 14 last season. 15 if you count Wenger's end of season departure.

6to24characters - 02 Aug 2018 22:49:25 (#15 of 50)

Actually, I think L1, L2 and Scotland might be more fruitful. The turnover at that level is positively brutal in the first part of the season.

Anyway, my picks are as follows:

1) Joey Barton (Fleetwood)

2) Frankie Bunn (Oldham) - Joker

3) John Askey (Shrewsbury)

4) Rafa Benitez (Newcastle)

5) Steve McClaren (QPR)

6) Neil Aspin (Port Vale)

7) Dean Keates (Walsall)
