Micky Adams Odds On In Next Port Vale Manager Betting

Mick Bates by Mick Bates / 12 May 2011, 09:30

Following his surprise sacking from Sheffield United, speculation is rife that Micky Adams is set for a return to Port Vale - the club he left for United back in December. Despite their poor run of form under Adams - just four wins in 24 matches which resulted in relegation to League One - the Blades were widely expected to give Adams a full-season in charge in order to prove his credentials and spear an instant return to the Championship. However, the Sheffield United chairman, Kevin McCabe, obviously thought otherwise and gave Adams the chop on Tuesday.

Adams spent 18 months as Port Vale manager before leaving in December to join his hometown club Sheffield United. The 46-year-old had left Vale flying high in second place in League Two, in a seemingly good position of gaining promotion to League One at the end of the season. However, after his departure the club went on a woeful run under new manager Jim Gannon, who in the end lasted a mere 75 days at Vale Park, making him the shortest reigning manager in the club's history. After Gannon's sacking the club appointed their youth-team coach Mark Grew as caretaker manager, but the club couldn't recover from theur mid-season slump and finished the campaign outside the play-offs in 11th place, a massive 15 points off the top three.

Port Vale's squad is expected to undergo a complete overhaul this summer in order to build a team capable of mounting a real challenge for promotion. They will be looking for a manager who is capable of lifting the club out of the division. Adams not doubt has the credentials but the question is would the fans want him back at the club after leaving them in December? Manysupporters may still resent his move to Sheffield United and may feel that if he did it before he is likely to do it again should a bigger club come in for his services.

Victor Chandler have Micky Adams as the odds-on favourite to become the next Port Vale manager. Other candidates in the running for the Port Vale vacancy include the former Coventry manager Aidy Boothroyd and the Accrington Stanley manager John Coleman.
