Roy Hodgson 5/2 To See Contract Out Until 2016: Curbishley Favourite For West Brom Role!

Roy Hodgson is widely expected to become England manager in the next 24 hours but William Hill are already betting on when he will leave the position. Should England have a shocker at the European Championships, he could be on his way and he is 14/1 to go this year. His contract is expected to last until after the 2016 Championships and that is the favourite to be his year of departure at 5/2.

“Despite not being everyone’s first choice, the odds suggest that England will stick with Hodgson until 2016,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

Hodgson favourites who could make the squad under their former boss include Bobby Zamora (2/1), Joe Cole (7/1) and Andy Johnson (4/1). Those who could miss out are his former Liverpool cohorts and Hills offer 6/1 that no Reds player starts England’s first Euros match.

West Brom will need to find a successor for Roy Hodgson and Alan Curbishley is the 3/1 early favourite to get the job, with Chris Hughton 4/1 and Michael Appleton a 6/1 shot.

William Hill Odds:

Year Hodgson goes: 14/1 2012, 11/2 2013, 11/4 2014, 5/1 2015, 5/2 2016, 7/2 2017 or later

To make the euro 2012 squad: 2/1 Bobby Zamora, 4/1 Andy Johnson, 7/1 Joe Cole, 33/1 Paul Konchesk

6/1 No Liverpool player in the starting line up v France

Next West Brom Manager: 3/1 Alan Curbishley, 4/1 Chris Hughton, 6/1 Michael Appleton, 8/1 Roberto Martinez, 10/1 Lee Clark, 10/1 Steve Bruce, 12/1 Dean Kiely, 14/1 Tony Mowbray, 14/1 Derek McInnes, 14/1 Gus Poyet, 16/1 Gianfranco Zola, 16/1 Mick McCarthy, 16/1 Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, 16/1 Rafael Benitez, 20/1 Paul Lambert, 20/1 Brendan Rodgers, 20/1 Darren Ferguson, 20/1 Dave Jones, 20/1 Glenn Hoddle, 20/1 Sam Allardyce, 20/1 Walter Smith, 25/1 Gordon Strachan, 25/1 Ray Wilkins, 25/1 Dougie Freedman, 25/1 Roy Keane, 33/1 Alan Shearer, 33/1 Gary Megson, 33/1 Paul Ince, 50/1 Bryan Robson.
