Steve Kean Early Favourite In Next Premier League Manager To Leave Betting

Paul Smith by Paul Smith / 24 June 2011, 10:47

It has only been a fraction over four weeks since the curtains closed on yet another highly dramatic Premier League season, but what a chaotic and entertaining month it has been in the manager merry go round. There have been some intriguing managerial changes during this period, from Alex McLeish's controversial switch from Birmingham City to Aston Villa, to Chelsea placing their trust in a 33-year-old relatively inexperienced manager. Now the dust has settled and each and every Premier League club has a manager in place at the helm, we look to the upcoming season and the Premier League managers who may be the first to crumble under the pressure?

Blackburn Rovers boss Steve Kean currently heads the Next Premier League Manager To Leave Betting with odds of 12/4 with Victor Chandler. The 43-year-old found himself increasingly under pressure last season as Blackburn slipped into a relegation dog fight. Despite saving the club from the dreaded drop with a win at Wolverhampton on the last day of the season, his days could be numbered if they do not get off to a good start this time round. Similarly Mick McCarthy, who kept Wolves up last season despite the defeat to Rovers, will also be in the firing line if results do not improve. And at 7/1 to be the next manager to leave McCarthy looks like a good punt.

Neil Warnock gained many plaudits for leading QPR to the Championship title last season and he will be hoping the momentum of winning the league will spur the club to greater things in England's top flight. The fixture list has been relatively kind to QPR as they avoid any of last season's top 6 untill October, which means it is crucial that the London club start firing on all cylinders early on, otherwise Warnock, who is 6/1 to leave, could be in serious trouble.

At 16/1 Alex McLeish represents very good value. The new Aston Villa manager is already under immense pressure from the club's supporters due to his contentious move from fierce local rivals Birmingham City. If the brave Scot fails to get the Midlands club off to a good start and win the fans over then his days could well be numbered. Despite respectable mid-table finishes for Sunderland and Newcastle last season, the fans are both a passionate and demanding bunch and will want to see improvements this season. The onus therefore lies with Steve Bruce (8/1) and Alan Pardew (9/1) to spark their club's respective season's into life early on.

New Chelsea boss Andre Villas-Boas has a lot to prove after Roman Abramovich forked out over £13m in compensation fees to bring him to Stamford Bridge. The Portuguese coach can be found at 33/1 to be the next top flight manager to leave, altough he is, however, unlikely to depart before Christmas unless Chelsea have an absolute shocker. So watch this space.
