It's hard to keep a track on things and the incredible statistic is that ten Championship clubs no longer have the manager they started the season with and three more, Birmingham, Hull and Watford, changed manager during the summer.
This week's manoeuvres have all come in the last 48 hours or so starting with the appointment of Michael Appleton at Blackburn in a move that looks very much as though Derek Shaw and Paul Agnew, the Preston pair, have got one over on our friend Shebby Singh whose future at Ewood must now be in some doubt.
Appleton, of course, started the season with Portsmouth and was linked with each and every Championship job that became available. There was strong speculation that he was interviewed for the Burnley job but eventually replaced Ian Holloway at Blackpool.
It didn't take him long to get fed up there and this week, just 67 days after becoming their manager, he jumped ship to Blackburn and that's left former Claret Steve Thompson in temporary charge again.
They lost yesterday at Charlton and Thompson, who has put his name forward for the job, said: "It's not the perfect scenario when yet again these lads (the players) are coming in and there is no manager.
"The manager has worked with them for two months on how he wants them to play, and the next minute he's gone. It's my job to galvanise those players and get their belief back because they have had the stuffing knocked out of them again."
Chairman Karl Oyston, who didn't seem to make much effort to keep Appleton, just said he'd gone because Blackburn were able to offer him more money.
With that all settled it probably didn't come as much of a surprise that Derek McInnes went at Bristol City yesterday after a 4-0 defeat at home to Leicester. When we were there in November it as obvious that their fans weren't happy with him and there has certainly been no improvement since.
Meanwhile at Barnsley every man and his dog has been turning the job down including out of work Sean O'Driscoll and Inverness Caledonian Thistle manager Terry Butcher. So, they've given up looking for a new man now and given it to the one person who always wanted the job, caretaker David Flitcroft.
Bristol City and Barnsley swapped places yesterday but remain the bottom two. That's because Barnsley won the Yorkshire derby against Leeds. Peterborough dropped back into the relegation zone when Sheffield Wednesday won a sensational game at Hull in front of the television cameras.
It was a game that poor Hull's Swiss goalkeeper Eldin Jakupovic won't particularly want to remember. He was at fault with the first two Wednesday goals, was fortunate to see another strangely ruled out, and was then stretchered off after the second goal with a facial injury.
Thankfully the facial injury wasn't serious and he should be able to continue after making his debut three weeks ago, becoming the third of four goalkeepers they've used this season.
Despite the defeat, Hull remain second and that's because the two teams directly below them both lost. Palace were beaten against us and Middlesbrough went down to a 2-1 home defeat against Watford.
Those results mean Leicester, who have scored ten goals in two league games in 2013, go third. two points behind Hull. Cardiff are now eight points clear at the top with Watford the other club in the play off positions.
Despite our win yesterday, we remain four points behind the play offs and eight points behind fifth place.
