3. Cardiff City

For a newly promoted side, Cardiff have been impressive so far this season.

They currently sit in 14th position in the table, having taken two wins and eight points. However, manager Malky Mackay's right hand man Ian Moody has just been sacked by the club's owner, Vincent Tan.

The more bizarre thing is that Moody's position as head of recruitment has been filled by Alisher Apsalyamov, a 23-year old former intern with no football experience.

It seems as though Mackay will be the next to go, he will become another manager who never deserved to lose his job and Cardiff will become a laughing stock.

If the Scot does leave, it seems very unlikely that Cardiff will remain in the Premier League.

You only need to look at Blackburn Rovers to know what happens when erratic foreign owners take over a formerly proud football club.
