Steve Clarke Looking To Prove Critics Wrong

Jack Kitson by Jack Kitson / 17 August 2012, 09:59

West Brom boss Steve Clarke is currently preparing to embark in his first season as a Premier League manager. With many experts predicting relegation for the Baggies at the end of the season, the experienced coach will be desperate to prove the critics wrong. The Midlands club have been handed odds of 7/2 with Stan James to go down, while Clarke is currently the second favourite in the Next Premier League Manager To Leave market with odds of 11/2.

Despite negativity from certain quarters, there is a refreshing air of confidence around the club, with this their third successive season in the top flight. After a number of yo-yo seasons the Baggies have exceeded many people’s expectations in the last two campaigns, finishing 11th in 2011 and a very respectable 10th last season. They will once again be looking to break the 50 point mark and claim another top 10 finish this time around, and have been handed odds of 7/2 with SkyBet to do so. It’s a long shot but Clarke can be backed at 50/1 to really shine in his maiden managerial season and scoop the LMA Manager of the year award.

The Baggies have been dealt a tricky opening fixture against Liverpool, with whom Clarke worked at under Kenny Dalglish last season. Stan James have handed the Midlands club odds of 14/5 to get off to winning start, while Liverpool are available at evens, with a draw priced at 12/5.
