Is Martin Off On His Jol-ies To The North West Or Will Alan Curb His Enthusiasm?

Despite the Venky’s Group maintaining that they want to appoint an English manager to replace Sam Allardyce at Blackburn, it is Dutchman Martin Jol who heads the betting at William Hill at 4/1. He is then followed by a veritable army of British and Irish managers, with Dave Jones and Chris Hughton both 5/1 and Alan Curbishley at 6/1.

“Martin Jol performed well during his time at Tottenham and he is currently out of a job, however, should the fact that he is not British count against him, Dave Jones, Chris Hughton and Alan Curbishley are all waiting in the wings,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

William Hill Next Blackburn Manager:

4/1 Martin Jol; 5/1 Dave Jones; 5/1 Chris Hughton; 6/1 Alan Curbishley; 7/1 Martin O’Neill; 7/1 Roy Keane; 15/2 Chris Coleman; 9/1 Steve McClaren; 10/1 Phil Brown; 10/1 Sven –Goran Eriksson; 12/1 Diego Maradona; 12/1 Alan Shearer; 14/1 Stuart Pearce; 16/1 David O’Leary; 16/1 Gordon Strachan; 20/1 Paul Jewell; 25/1 Iain Dowie; 25/1 Paul Lambert; 25/1 Ray Wilkins; 25/1 Simon Grayson; 25/1 Steve Clarke; 33/1 Frank Rijkaard; 40/1 Jurgen Klinsmann

ALAN PARDEW is Even money favourite with William Hill to become the next permanent Newcastle manager with Martin Jol 2/1 second favourite ahead of Martin O’Neill at 8/1; Curbishley and Wilkins both 12/1 and Hoddle 14/1. ‘Two thirds of the bets we have taken today have been for the original favourite, Pardew, who was briefly supplanted by Jol when news of his departure from Ajax broke. We have also seen a few bets here and there for Ray Wilkins’ said Hill’s spokesman Graham Sharpe.

33/1 HUGHTON IS THE LAST PREM BOSS TO GO THIS SEASON

William Hill believe that Chris Hughton will not be the last Premier League manager to depart his club this season – quoting 33/1 that he will be. But Avram Grant is their 7/4 favourite to be the next departure this season and Hills also offer 5/1 McCarthy; Mancini; 6/1 Ancelotti; 10/1 Martinez; 11/1 Hodgson. ‘It would be a major surprise if there were to be no further managerial casualties this season in the Premier League – in fact, we reckon there are likely to be another four at least’ said Hill’s spokesman Graham Sharpe.
