It was rumored even before Bologna's match against Udinese at the weekend that coach Pierpaolo Bisoli was on his way out, and sure enough, after a 2-0 home loss, the club announced on Tuesday that Stefano Pioli would be taking his place. The rossoblu are sitting in dead last, having earned just one point in a draw against Juventus. After five matches, he squad has scored just two goals in Serie A.
In case you're having trouble keeping track of the Serie A manager-merry-go-round, Pioli was fired by Palermo just before the season was set to start, replaced by Devis Mangia. He'd started with the rosanero in the summer, after leaving Chievo Verona, who brought back Domenico Di Carlo after a disappointing season at Sampdoria. It was Alberto Malesani who kept Bologna clear of relegation last season, but he was replaced by Bisoli after the season ended and is now at Genoa.
So who thinks Pioli will make it through the season?
