As the new Premier League season gets ready for the big kick-off there are a number of excellent special bets on offer for punters this weekend, one of the most interesting is the First Manager To Be Sent Off this season and Paddy Powerhave opened up the market for punters. The market is looking for the first Manager to be sent from the touchline and into the stands this season with the opening weekend fixtures in particular focus, there are a number of Managers being well backed in this market with the pressure of a new season set to weigh heavily on the shoulders of the Managers.

Punters are well advised to have a look at those Managers who have form in this area and at the moment we are seeing the likes of Alex McLeish, Steve Bruce and David Moyes all heading up the market, McLeish in particular is known for his fiery temper and few would be surprised to see the Scot sat in the stands at some point this weekend as Birmingham play Sunderland. Referees will be under the microscope as always this season and they will only be one poor decision away from receiving an earful from an under pressure Premier League Manager, McLeish will know that Birmingham will need a good start to the season so he could be the ideal candidate here if things don't go his way.

One man that is known for his straight talking his Ian Holloway who will be leading Blackpool in the Premier League this season, his acid tongue has got him into trouble on a number of occasions and the added pressure of Premier League football is sure to test his patience to the limit. With that in mind Holloway looks good value in this market as they start their campaign with a tricky tie away at Wigan, he has struggled to bring any new signings to Bloomfield Road and no doubt he can already feel the pressure building ahead of a long season.

This is a market that of course is a sign of the pressure that Premier League Managers are under at the moment and it is sure that it will not take long for one of theses men to be sent to the stands, there is some good value across the board here but the Sack Racelikes the odds about Ian Holloway here with Blackpool sure to endure a tough start to their first season in the Premier League.
