After joining the likes of Serie A and La Liga, putting our feet up in front of the telly and enjoying the mid-winter break, Footy Factor is back and looking forward to another scintillating year of footy. Up next, who will be the first Premiership manager in the New Year to get the chop? There’s a lot to chose from…
Carlo Ancelotti – Dead Man Walking. Prior to squeezing out a win against Bolton last week, Chelsea had won 6 points out of a possible 24. The worst run in the Abramovich Era saw Chelsea humiliated at home to Sunderland, and away to Birmingham and Arsenal. Sitting pretty five points clear at the top of the Premiership in early November, Chelsea head into 2011 four points off the pace. It’s worth noting Ancelotti is the only manager on the list who has spent a full season in England. That’s made all the more interesting as only one other manager during the Abramovich Era has lasted a full season at Stamford Bridge, the Special One. And look what happened to him. Odds: 4:1. Florent Malouda‘s goal saved Ancelotti for another week but it won’t last forever.
