It has been announced the Sheffield United will delay appointing a new Manager until after Christmas but all the indications are that Sean O'Driscoll could be ready to jump ship from Doncaster to take control at Bramall Lane over the next few days. The Blades have been looking for a new Manager ever since Gary Speed left the club to take over at Wales and O'Driscoll has been pin pointed as the main contender to take over the job, he has done a cracking job at Doncaster but few would argue that Sheffield United are a bigger club and have the potential to head back to the Premier League. O'Driscoll will be aware of that and he is likely to jump at the chance of moving to Sheffield given the chance over the next few days, that is despite the fact that Rovers currently sit comfortably ahead of United in the Championship table at the moment.

The bookmakers have been watching the managerial search with great interest over the past few days and O'Driscoll has been all the rage with punters, the former Bournemouth Manager has been a shade of odds on in the market but has drifted slightly to even money with Victor Chandler. O'Driscoll developed an excellent reputation in the game at Bournemouth and currently at Doncaster, he led Rovers from League One and into the Championship and more impressively he has kept them in the Championship with something in hand over the past couple of years. It is also well worth noting that should O'Driscoll leave Doncaster for The Blades he is likely to recommend current Bournemouth Manager Eddie Howe to the board at Keepmoat Stadium as his replacement, Howe has done a great job at Dean Court and is well known to O'Driscoll from his time down on the south coast.

John Carver is currently in charge at Sheffield United on a temporary basis and he looks the next most likely candidate outside of Sean O'Driscoll, Carver is an experienced Coach and a couple of good results over the Christmas period will certainly help out his cause and that is reflected in the latest betting. He would certainly be a live contender as is Mickey Adams who ahs been doing a good job down in League Two with Port Vale, he has long been admired as a Manager and maybe ready for another crack further up the League ladder after spells with Leicester. Fulham and Coventry among many others during his career. At the moment though it is hard to look past Sean O'Driscoll as the leading contender and the betting shows us that he is the one to watch over the next few days, the festive period may delay the appointment but he is likely to be approached to head to Bramall Lane before the end of the year.
