Ronald Koeman sacked as Everton manager.

Kind of surprising but also not. David Moyes one of the top names to take over...

Very lucky penalty: http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/41728826

Don't get it with Moyes. He keeps taking on very difficult jobs and the getting sacked when he doesn't turn it around. He's a good manager but his CV makes him look like he isn't. Also can't imagine West Ham fans being over enthused, and just like with Allardyce, they'll have him out even if he turns it around. The problem with his new job is that he not only has to bring success on a budget, but also do it the 'West Ham way', something Allardyce failed to do.

I cannot stand West Ham so I do hope that Moyes takes them down.

Alan Pardew is new West Brom manager. He has taken the best manager in the Premier League John Carver with him...

Big Sam to be new Everton manager.

British manager merry-go-round. None of them have won anything of note yet still end up with multi million pound contracts.

Paul Clement sacked as Swansea manager.

Bit harsh I think as they sold their best two players in the summer and didn't really sign any quality to replace them.

Ross Barkley has signed for Chelsea from Everton for £15M.

I like how he described the move as "unbelievable" and "a fresh start".

So unbeliveable after turning down Chelsea in the Summer...
