Not worried about trusting Wikipedia (or at least that page), but looks like the BBC have let me down on this one:

It was probably a full time job for someone to keep updating it!!

Bloody ridiculous. They're still in the Champions League! Hope Vardy and Mahrez walk out and they get relegated.

Don't agree - Premiership survival worth £100m and their recent form is appalling. Harsh, yes but that's the game in the Premiershit. Business decision and yes football is a business at that level more so often than it is a sport.

A little lull, then it all kicked off

12 May - 'Arry REdknapp takes on a 1yr deal at Birmingham
19 May - Rossi Eames appointed at Barnet
21 May - Mazzarri departs Watford
22 May - Moyes quits Sunderland
23 May - Big Sam quits Palace (and football in general?)
23 May - Former Watford U23 coach Harry Kewell appointed at Crawley
25 May - Garry Monk quits Leeds after not getting the assurances he was looking for
25 May - Daniel Farke (former coach of Dortmund Reserves) appointed at Norwich
25 May - Marco Silva resigns from Hull.....
26 May - Craig Harrison leaves Welsh League side The New Saints to take over at Hartlepool
28 May - .... Marco Silva takes over at Watford

So still a number of big roles to be filled -
- rumours include Karanka joining Leeds (he has ties with some of new owners people) and Monk swapping to Boro in return.
- Hull would be an interesting challenge, but Sunderland would appear to be an even worse prospect than Villa were last year.

Also, for the record - Hartlepool and Orient, both with very recent appointments now leave the list to be replaced by Lincoln and Forest Green.
Interestingly their respective managers joined within 4 days of each other on the 13th & 9th May 2016 (either side of Chrissie Wilder's arrival at BRammall Lane) which puts them at 43rd (Mark Cooper - FGR) and 45th (DAnny Cowley - Lincoln) on the list.
Mike Appleton remains in 15th place and will celebrate three years in charge on 4th July

Couple more happening:

30/31 May - Wolves sack Paul Lambert to bring in Nuno Espirito Santo
31 May - Paul Cook quits Portsmouth to take over at Wigan
2 June - Pompey appoint Kenny Jackett to replace Cook

Also on the horizon, Teddy SHerringham appears all set to join Slumdon as boss

Cook leaves from 23rd on the list.
Interestingly, this is the third consecutive occasion that he has quit one position for another (2012 Accrington for Chesterfield, 2015 Chesterfield for Portsmouth and now 2017 Portsmouth for Wigan).

We hoped it would not happen but Michael Appleton
leaves Oxford after almost three years at the helm.

So, first update for quite a while but here goes:
In five months since start June - 18 appointments, 15 departures including two who fit into both categories, such was the brevity of their tenure:

2nd June - Kenny Jackett appointed at Portsmouth , then 5th June - David Flitcroft (rather than Sherringham) appointed at Slumdon

Then came four key appointments in the North East over just three weeks:
9th June - Leonid Slutsky at Hull AND Garry Monk at the Boro
14th June - Tomas Christianssen at Leeds
and 29th June - Simon Grayson left Preseton to join Sunderland

In the mean time:
14th June - back on the South coast Claude Puel was sacked by Soton who appointed Mauriccio Pellegrino on 23rd June
20th June - MAPP left Oxford to be replaced by Pep Clotet on 1st July
26th June - Frank De Boer arrived at Palace
4th July - Alex Neil filled Grayson's position at Preston
10th July - Steve Davis took over the reigns from Omer Riza at Orient
For the record - Puel was 51st on the list when he left Soton, MAPP 14th when he left Oxford, while Grayson left from 10th on the list.

A brief period of hush and full employment followed but no sooner had the new season kicked off, then people were being kicked out:
Kevin Nicholson at National League Torquay was actually first casualty of the season, but in league terms:
31st August - Justin Edinburgh (1) was sacked by Noton, and replaced by Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink on 4th Sept
11th Sept - De Boer (2, P1) was first to go in the Prem, replaced on the 12th by Roy Hodgson
16th Sept - the cullilng properly took hold with Gary Caldwell (Chesterfield) (3), HArry Redknapp (B'ham) (4) and Michael Brown (P Vale) (5) all being sacked
25th Sept - a brief lull then both Ady Pennock (Gillingham) (6) and john Sheridan (Oldham) (7) both went

Replacements came in the form of:
29th Sept - Steve Cotterill (B'ham) and Jack Lester (Chesterfield)
4th Oct - Neil Aspin (P Vale)
18th Oct - Richie Wellens (Oldham)

Then came the next wave
17th Oct - Shakespere went from Leicester (8, P2) to be replaced by Puel (25th Oct)
23rd Oct - Koeman went from Everton (9, P3)
30th Oct - Lee Clark went from Bury (10)
31st Oct - Simon Grayson from Sunderland (11)

So, the merry-go-round continues

Another woefully kept secret - Moyes replaces Bilic at the Hammers.
Bilic lasted 2 years 5 months and reached 20th on the list.....

Big Sam edging ahead of Dyche and Unsworth at Everton -
