Before trawling the record books I had assumed there had been many more Premier League managers who had been sacked in their first season after promotion.
By my reckoning, there have been only nine; though five of those have been in the past three seasons as the increased riches of the league leads to greater pressure on Chairmen to maintain their slice of the action.
It seems to work too. Newcastle (who were hardly in danger anyway), West Brom and QPR have all recently survived in the Premier League after brutally sacking the man who got them there.
The odds are against that pattern continuing this season though with one of Southampton or, more likely, Reading falling straight back into the Championship.
