Alan Pardew new favourite for Ipswich Town job

Former West Brom boss Alan Pardew has only been out of work for 24 hours but already he finds himself as the new frontunner in a Football League next manager market.

Pardew “mutually agreed” to part ways with the rock-bottom Baggies on Monday following a shocking four month spell in charge.

However, the Silver Fox has tonight (Tuesday) been catapulted to the top of the Next Ipswich Town Manager Market, with Bet Victor pricing him at just 6/4 to be the man who replaces Mick McCarthy.

Last Thursday Ipswich revealed that McCarthy would be stepping down from his post in the summer, although rumours are rife that he could even leave before the season comes to an end.

McCarthy was asked if he was still enjoying the job following Easter Monday’s 2-2 draw with Millwill. To which he responded:

"No, I'm not, I've got to be brutally honest.

"There's a little bit of me that's died, I'm not going to tell a lie.

"I'm doing this for my own personal pride and for the lads.

"I've never been in a driverless car and I never want to go in one - but I would imagine it feels like how I'm feeling at the moment.

(Quote: BBC Sport)

In the aftermath of Pardew’s sacking many thought there would be no way back for him in the Premier League, but while that's likely to be the case, he may soon be cropping back up in the Championship with Ipswich.
