Steve Bruces days appear numbered at Sunderland and the William Hill sack race betting remains suspended for the foreseeable future. Hills are betting on who will be next through the doors at the Stadium of Light. Martin ONeill is the 5/4 favourite while former Liverpool boss, Rafa Benitez, is 6/1. Former Sunderland player and current Huddersfield boss, Lee Clark is third favourite at 9/1.
Martin ONeill is linked to almost every high profile job in English football but appears to have been biding his time until the right offer comes along, said Hills spokesman Joe Crilly. The odds would suggest that were Sunderland to come calling, he might make his much anticipated return to Premier League management.
William Hill make the game between Manchester United and Crystal Palace the 11/8 favourite to be the highest scoring Carling Cup Quarter Final game with the tie between Arsenal and Manchester City the 9/4 second favourite. United are 13/8 favourites to be the top scorers during the week and 11/4 to score the fastest goal.
Next Sunderland Manager: 5/4 Martin ONeill; 6/1 Rafa Benitez; 9/1 Lee Clark; 10/1 Mark Hughes; 14/1 Bob Bradley; 16/1 Dave Jones; 16/1 Steve McLaren; 16/1 Carlo Ancelotti; 16/1 Ole Gunnar Solksjaer; 16/1 Stuart Pearce; 20/1 Alan Curbishley; 20/1 Sean ODriscoll; 20/1 Gareth Southgate; 25/1 David Moyes; 25/1 Glenn Hoddle; 25/1 Sven Goran-Eriksson; 33/1 Gianfranco Zola; 33/1 Peter Reid; 33/1 Roy Keane…others on request
