What are the different levels of Performance rating and what do they mean?
Please note that these are now only visible on the ‘Job Security’ screen for all managers, and not on the Board section. However, the grading system maps somewhat similarly, so an A+ would be considered Untouchable, for example.
In terms of the 1-20 attribute range as seen on player profiles, imagine this to register at around the 16 or above mark. This is the strongest level of confidence you can have and it means your job is as safe as can be.
We lose a couple of marks dropping to Very Secure but you’re still highly impressive and have the Board’s full backing.
Another couple of marks drop off as we’re ‘only’ Secure now; you’re doing a good job, and the Board have no concerns with your management.
Consider this to be just above 50%; you’re trending slightly upwards, but things are finely poised and the next few results could swing things up or down.
We’re now dropping below the mid-point threshold and your job could be in peril if you don’t start to pick up points. It’s at this point that the Board might start to consider calling a meeting for you to explain yourself.
One step down is Very Insecure; your job is now in great peril, and a win in your next fixture is of paramount importance.
Anything at 6/20 or below on the comparative attribute scale means you’re almost certainly on the verge of being sacked; the Board may take action at any time, and another defeat before then will almost certainly result in the termination of your contract.
This is used immediately following a Board takeover while the new Chairman evaluates the managerial situation at the club.
