Why are the same old managers still getting jobs?

First, Roy Hodgson got the Crystal Palace job. Then David Moyes replaced Slaven Bilic at West ham. Now, it appears that Alan Pardew is destined to take over at West Brom, with Sam Allardyce strongly linked with the current vacancy at Everton.

The Premier League continually looks to the same old names to fill the same old jobs. But why? Is there a reason for this? Is this the result of a safety first culture in the English top flight? Why are clubs so reluctant to look outside the box when looking for managers? After all, we're all obsessed with managers. It's a little peculiar that so little imagination is applied to hiring them.

Niall Murray was joined by Stefan Bienkowski and Graham Ruthven to talk it all over. And disagree over Moyes.
