Who Is Odds On To Become Manager?
So, Ince out but who in?
A decent indication is often the bookies and where better to judge what is on offer than Oddschecker who independently compares odds from more than 20 online bookmakers to help its users obtain the best price for their chosen bet.
So who have the bookies lined up as the early favourite for the Ewood Park hot seat? www.oddschecker.com
Most seem to fancy an old boy to return as the odds are basically evens or as near to evens as you can get for former manager Graeme Souness to return to Ewood Park and back to football after a lengthy absence following his dismal stint at Newcastle (2004-2006).
Talking about ex Newcastle managers, the next in line according could apparently be Sam Allardyce who is around 3/1. HOOFBALL here we come!
Owen Coyle odds differ widely, you can get up to 20/1 or as low as 10/1.
Another available manager, this time ex West Ham and more famously Charlton, Alan Curbishley comes in at around 7/1 with former Liverpool manager Gerrard Houllier available at between 12/1 with Sky Bet and 18/1 with Paddy Power.
Former SAS specialist Alan Shearer is in the running - very unlikely though I would say - at 25/1 as is former England and Middlesbrough boss Steve McClaren.
A manager linked before we took Ince, Michael Laudrup you can get at 25/1 with Skybet and for the rest, I'll leave you to browse yourselves! Click Here
Must admit, I always like to keep an eye on the odds, as quite often you all of a sudden see an outsiders odds slashed as the bookies hear something on the grapevine. One thing is for sure, we need a new manager in as soon as possible, lets just hope this time they get the right one.
So, who do you fancy?
