A couple of months into the football season, and the sack race is well and truly under way. In fact, for some it's all over.
Swansea City's Francesco Guidolin was the first manager to go in the Premier League this season, and with league tables starting to take shape, question marks hang over the heads of managers all over the country.
But rarely is a manager's sacking as imminent as at York City, where Jackie McNamara is hanging onto his position by the skin of his teeth.
The club released a statement after York City's latest loss, a 6-1 hammering at Guiseley, which reads: "It has been decided that, if the team fails to gain a positive result at Braintree Town on Saturday, the York City manager will tender his resignation."
That's quite a statement, but in fairness, it has been coming.
I'm gonna go out on a limb here guys. I'm not 100% sure Jackie McNamara is the right man for the job #ycfc

This isn't a statistic you want showing up on your CV.
Fair play to Jackie McNamara. Has held on to the York City job for 10 months despite relegation and a win percentage of 17.4%.

The 6-1 defeat at Guiseley was seen by many as the final straw.
York City will surely part with manager Jackie McNamara within the next 24 hours.6-1 loss to previously winless Guiseley must signal the end

But still, McNamara remains. We'd maybe put the office refurbishment on hold, Jackie.
Jackie McNamara still hasn't been sacked by York. Can't be long off, surely? Hours? Minutes?

Just interviewed York's Jackie McNamara for tonight's @5livesport . Can't recall interviewing a manager who has sounded as low.

Still, it seems pretty pointless to make a decision based on one game.
York City say "if the club don't get a positive result on Saturday the manager (Jackie McNamara) will tender his resignation." Unreal.

There's little to suggest this weekend's fixture away at Braintree Town will be any different either.
Jackie McNamara away #ycfc record: LLLLLDLDLLLLLLLLDDLLLLLL - GF19 GA61 - 4 points won from a possible 72.

The club statement continued: "The manager will be looking for a passionate and committed reaction from the players".
You don't say.
