Tony Pulis, Crystal Palace, mutual consent 14th August

Mark Robins

With just two days to go before the start of the 2014/15 season Crystal Palace fans were shocked over rumours that boss Tony Pulis was set to leave the club, his odds were slashed from 40/1 to 4/1 and then late on 14th August it was announced that he had left the club via the old classic "mutual consent" making the manager the first managerial casualty of the 2014/15 Premier League.

The reasons for the departure appear to be based around tense discussions between Pulis and Palace chairman Steve Parish and the managers frustration with the lack of summer transfer signings.

Mark Robins, Huddersfield Town, sacked 10th August

Tony Pulis

Huddersfield Town sacked boss Mark Robins just one game into the new 2014/15 Championship season following a crushing 4-0 defeat at home to Bournemouth on the opening day. At first glance the surprise decision seems both a harsh and ruthless, however if you take into account the club's dreadful form at the end of the previous season (2 wins in 13) then it becomes clearer.

Robins took charge of the Terriers in February 2013 and went on to save the club from relegation. In his first full season in charge he once again kept the Yorkshire outfit in the second-tier after steering them to a 17th place finish. However, their disappointing end to the 2013/14 campaign, followed by their shocking start to the current season, proved to be costly for Robins.
