Hertha 0-5 Koln: Match stats, Player stats, FC Player and Team Ratings

Alexander Nouri only replaced Jurgen Klinsmann at basket-case club Hertha Berlin two weeks ago, but after the weekend's thumping 5-0 home loss to not-so-handy Koln, it's already looking bleak.

Considering the amount of money being spent in the summer, they are just six points above the relegation play-off in the Bundesliga, and relegation simply isn't an option.

Hertha have released a statement today backing Nouri, who must feel like a rabbit in the headlights, but a run of bad results may push the club into more action as they look to ensure they have top-flight football next season.


Real Sociedad 3-0 Valencia: Match stats, Player stats, FC Player and Team Ratings

Valencia set themselves up to have a dysfunctional season in September when they dismissed Marcelino against the judgement of the players, with Albert Celades jettisoned in to steady the ship.

Celades has actually performed a decent job under difficult circumstances, defeating Barcelona in January, but in the last two weeks the wheels have threatened to fall off their season. A 4-1 humbling away to Atalanta leaves them with a mountain to climb to reach the quarter-finals, and domestically an equally-damaging 3-0 loss to Real Soceidad could prove pivotal in the race for Champions League football.

Los Che are now five points from the top four and a poor result against Betis could be bad news for Celades.


FC have devised an algorithm which tracks news stories and sentiment regarding coaches for the top five leagues in Europe, plus the English Championship.

Once a week, we cross-reference our data with our group of league-specific experts to reorder the list and change manager status based on the data available.

We then outlay the data based on the format used in Championship Manager to highlight who is safe, and who is moving closer to the exit door.

You can bookmark the link below where the Job Security section will be updated each week.

We'll also focus on one coach a week who may well be heading towards trouble, as well as adjusting the positions of other coaches who have good/bad results.
