Who Is Odds On To Become Manager?

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?

Shearer would be a mistake he will do as bad as Ince...good players do not always make good managers. You need an experienced head to get you out, your best bet is Allardice.

I second Allardyce, but the link with Dave Jones is good - he is a quality manager, despite his "tarnished" reputation.

It has to be Sam Allardyce, surely. And the sooner the better.

That is a point Wellsy, would you guys take Hughes back after he walked out on you all?

Personally, I would have him back in a shot. He did wonders for us, how many managers would refuse the lure of managing a club with endless money? I just think he felt he had taken us as far as he could - how true that looks now!!

If Sparky came back (which he won't) then the same thing would happen again, he'd take us as far as he felt he could then move on to a more attractive option.

Video - Burton 1-1 Blackburn

All three points would have been claimed for Blackburn but for a Burton equaliser in a 1-1 draw that means Rovers are three points from safety.
