Premier League Managerial changes this season... how have they worked?



Tuesday saw the appointment of Dick Advocaat as Sunderland’s interim head coach, with £1m potentially on the table if he can save the ailing club… but the question on everyone’s lips is will Sunderland’s managerial change alter their recent failures? As the Dutchman prepares for his first game in charge, we thought we’d take a look at how the other Premier League managerial changes have worked this season…


The managerial changes that worked…

Tony Pulis, who was offered a two-and-a-half-year deal with West Brom at the start of the year has enjoyed great form, averaging 1.84 points a game. Alan Pardew and Tim Sherwood have achieved very similar success, with the latter now sitting on a not-unhealthy ratio of 3 wins to 2 losses. 



The managerial changes that haven’t worked…

Newcastle’s  appointment John Carver after Pardew’s departures and Queens Park Rangers’ Harry Redknapp replacement Chris Ramsey – have been considerably less successful: Carver has managed just 9 points in 11 games in charge, with Ramsey only found 1 win in 5.
