QUIZ: Can you name the first manager to leave in every Premier League season? (1992 - 2020)

by The Sack Race / 13 January 2021, 08:54

We are mid-way through the 29th edition of the Premier League; a topsy-turvy season which has seen the high-profile trio of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, Frank Lampard and Mikel Arteta come under immense pressure at various points.

Each boss has stubbornly refused to buckle - yet - and while the spotlight remains firmly honed in on Lampard, Arteta has overseen an encouraging sequence of wins, while Solskjaer has sent his critics for six after he propelled Man Utd to the summit of the table.

It’s perhaps a surprise that only one top-flight boss has exited so far - although he’s already back in work - an event which now means that each and every single one of the aforementioned 29 Premier League seasons has contained a managerial departure: from 1992/93 through to the current 2020/21.

Plenty of you out there may be able to recall many of the more minor and perhaps forgotten exits over the years; ranging from Felix Magath’s bizarre stint at Fulham, to Graeme Souness rocking up at Southampton, and Jacques Santini at Spurs; let’s not forget Les Reed’s blink-and-you’ll-miss-it pit-stop at Charlton.

But, are you able to name the first managerial departure that took place in each Premier League season? 

We’re not going to lie, this is a tricky one, however if you think you’ve got what it takes then scroll down and get typing.

We’ve given you a helping hand in the form of which club each manager left, while you can also have a head start with Slaven Bilic - you’ll still need to type him in - who last month became the first managerial casualty of the current campaign after West Brom relieved the Croatian of his duties.

Note: In each season the ‘first Premier League manager to leave’ occurs after the first kick of the very first game of the season - departures in pre-season do not count e.g. Michael O’Neill (Aston Villa, 2010).
