Remi Garde One Of Five Managers To Keep An Eye On This Weekend

Mick Bates by Mick Bates / 05 February 2016, 16:52

As we now enter the last few months of the season, the pressure is starting to crank up on those in the hot seat as teams decide whether to stick or twist in the final push for a successful run in. Those under the spotlight this week include struggling Villa manager Remi Garde, Newcastle boss Steve McClaren, Blackburn chief Paul Lambert, Colchester's Kevin Keen and Manchester United's meticulous Louis Van Gaal.

Louis Van Gaal

After a greatly improved performance against Stoke midweek, Louis Van Gaal has done much to ease the pressure surrounding his future, but with a tricky game at Stamford Bridge against an improved Chelsea, it might not be to long before the Old Trafford faithful once more turn on the Dutchman. United were free flowing against Stoke, with their counter attacking style invoking memories of Sir Alex's sides, but a defeat to Gus Hiddink's men would leave United's hopes of Champions League qualification in severe doubt. This, coupled with recent rumours of an approach for Jose Mourinho, would leave Van Gaal in an extremely precarious situation, and just as with David Moyes before him, could see the Dutchman given the boot by the Old Trafford board.

Remi Garde

A 1-0 victory over Palace in January gave Villa renewed optimism that they could still pull of a great escape, however, failure to win in their last three games has seen this quickly diminish as they now look resigned to relegation. Despite Remi Garde taking over at an already tumultuous period for the club, it was hoped that with a January transfer window behind them the teams form could improve, this, however, has not materialised. The club's failure to strengthen in January coupled with the bleak realties of relegation have seen the pressure creep up on Garde. This week when questioned about his future, Garde was unable to confirm if he would still be at the helm next season, a defeat at home to Norwich may take the decision out of his hands entirely.

Garde is the current favourite to be the next Premier League managerial departure at 7/10

Steve McClaren

After spending a reported 28 and a half million on three recruits this January, Newcastle fans will certainly be expecting the club's investment to steer them clear of relegation, however after the dire 3-0 defeat to Everton, it remains a distinct possibility. McClaren has failed to convince all season, and after defeats in their last two outings, a loss to West Brom at home could be enough to force the boards hand.

You can back McClaren to be the next man to depart the Premier League at 6/1

Paul Lambert

After a promising start to his Blackburn career, Paul Lamberts side are currently in the midst of an appalling run of form which has seen them fail to register a win in their last seven games. The departure of former hero Jordan Rhodes will have hurt fans and with pre season hopes of promotion now all but extinguished, failure at title hopefuls Middlesbrough could see dissent amongst the supporters reach toxic levels. Lambert will have to address the slide soon if he is to see the season out.

Kevin Keen

No one in the English League would envy Kevin Keen right now. Keen's side are bottom of the table, seven points adrift of safety, and have failed to win in 14 league matches, a run which stretches back to the 20th of October. They have conceded on average just over two goals a game, and any hope of survival is fading fast. Having been appointed in late December, Keen has only taken charge of 6 league matches, but he has failed to register a win in any of them. While it is harsh, if things don't start to improve quickly, supporters may start to call for a more experienced replacement, and with his next fixture at promotion chasing Southend United, things do not look like getting any easier for Keen and his players.
