Jamie Carragher has recently said that mid-season manager sackings should be banned in the football league. But do mid-season manager sackings even work?
West Ham's decision to keep Sam Allardyce at the helm has paid dividends; the East London club have climbed out of the relegation zone and up into 10th in the Premier League.

Let's look at the last 10 full-time Premier League managers to lose their job during the season and see if their successors were able to improve the club's fortunes.
Note: This article will just focus on league results. Also only the season that the manager was sacked will be counted, previous seasons are not included!
