There have been ten managerial changes since the start of the current Premier League season.
9 out of 10 of the people appointed had zero management experience in the Premier League. One had managed in the Championship, and three had managed elsewhere in Europe - but of them, only Felix Magath had real experience in a top league.
So which of them have been successful?
Tony Pulis, obviously, the one of the ten who had previously managed in the Premier League (he has a 48% win rate at Palace). It’s too early to make a fair judgement on Felix Magath, but he seems to be doing a decent job.
The rest of them have done no better than their predecessors.
