Danny Wilson 13/2 In Next League One Manager To Be Sacked Odds

Paul Smith by Paul Smith / 29 June 2011, 09:46

With the 2011/12 League One season kicking off in just over five weeks we take a look at the managers who are likely to feel the heat early on. With seven new teams entering the league (three relegated from the Championship and four promoted from League Two) and four managerial changes, there is likely to be a flurry of summer transfers as each team begins their preparations for the new season. Similarly to the Premier League and Championship, in League One there is little room for complacency and any manager showing signs of cracking under the pressure will be given the chop.

At the moment it is the Tranmere Rovers boss Les Parry who is the 10/3 favourite with Victor Chandler in the Next League One Manager To Be Sacked Odds<. Since finishing just outside the play-offs in 2008/09, Tranmere have been embroiled in consecutive relegation battles and have finished the last two seasons hovering dangerously above the drop zone in 18th and 19th. Their prospects don't look particularly great for the upcoming season as the bookmakers have made them one of the favourites for the drop. Fans of the club demand a clear improvement and if the club get off to a rocky start it is the manager that will have to shoulder the blame and if their fortunes fail to improve then the board will be out searching for his replacement.

Sheffield United (Danny Wilson), Rochdale (Steve Eyre), Brentford (Uwe Rosler) and newly promoted Bury (Richie Barker) will all start the 2011/12 season with a new manager at the helm. Sheffield United suffered the heartache of relegation last season after a miserable campaign where they lost 26 league games. As a result they axed Micky Adams and brought in Danny Wilson in order to breathe a fresh lease of life into the club as they bid to make an instant return to the Championship. The Blades are a big club with a huge fan base who will expect results in this division. It is therefore important that Wilson impresses early on otherwise the pressure could mount and he could be an early casualty. His first major test will be on Sunday 16th October when United face their fierce rivals Sheffield Wednesday at Bramall Lane. The 51-year-old is currently the second favourite manager to depart early with odds of 13/2, and poor early results coupled with a defeat at home to Wednesday could spell trouble for the former Barnsley boss.

At 7/1 Charlton Athletic manager Chris Powell will also start the new season among the favourites for the sack. Powell joined Charlton at the start of 2011 and got off to a flying start, picking up maximum points from his first four games in charge. However, things took a turn for the worse and the club ended the season in an unacceptable 13th place. The former Premier League club have now been stuck in League One for two years and they will be desperate to gain promotion this time round in what will be their third attempt. The Addicks are one of the favourites to win the league at 10/1 and are 3/1 to get promoted.
