Hodgson And Hughton joint favourites to be next premiership manager sacked

Mick Bates by Mick Bates / 29 October 2010, 09:20

As we approach the tenth game of the season we will have just finished the first quarter of the 2010/11 Barclays Premier League. Some teams so far have had a great start to the season and are exactly or very near to where they want to be (Chelsea, Arsenal) others may be punching above their weight and are in line for a big slide at some stage (West Brom, Newcastle) and others are in dire need of a string of wins (Liverpool, West Ham).

At the moment there are two managers that are feeling the heat as both Roy Hodgson and Chris Hughton have seen both of their odds of being the next premiership manager to be sacked set to just 6/4 with bookmakers William Hill. Hughton has seen his odds slashed from 7/2 to be joining the Liverpool boss in the manager sackrace. Earlier this week several bookmakers actually suspended betting on Hughton prior to his sides match against Arsenal in the Carling Cup.

Although he has guided Newcastle to the Premiership in what turned out to be a triumphant season for the Magpies as they emerged as Champions from the Coca Cola Championship, there are rumours circulating around the footballing gossip columns that there could be movement in the managerial role at Newcastle. The news would come as a surprise to the Toon Army as currently the Magpies find themselves in 9th place in the Premiership. However as they face Sunderland at St James Park this weekend in their local derby game a loss here could instantly change fans opinions. Newcastle are being quoted odds of 23/20 to win, 23/10 for the draw and a Sunderland win is at odds of 12/5.

Over at Anfield things are starting to look up for Liverpool, they managed to beat Blackburn 2-1 at home last Sunday which has helped keep Blackburn at 17th place and this weeks fixture sees Roy Hodgson's team travel to Bolton where Liverpool are being quoted odds of 5/4 for an away win. A win here would certainly help out with Liverpool’s poor league form and also relieve pressure from under fire manager Roy Hodgson.
