Newcastle boss Alan Pardew early favourite in the Touchline Tantrum betting

Alan PardewBookmakers are always opening up an array of unique manager markets, and on this occasion Paddy Power have done themselves proud by putting together odds on who will be the first Premier League manager to be sent off during the 2014/15 campaign. Touchline tantrums are part and parcel of the modern game, with even the coolest, calmest and most composed gaffer prone to "losing his rag" if a decision goes against him.

Last season Newcastle boss Alan Pardew took touchline tantrum to a whole new level. In a moment of utter madness the then 52-year-old dramatically head-butted Hull City player David Meyler, for which he was fined £100,000 by the Toon and £60,000 by the FA, and let's not forget the three-game stadium ban and further four match touchline absence.

Pardew is never too far away from controversy and it comes as absolutely no surprise to see him installed as the early 7/1 favourite to be the first top-flight gaffer to be sent off. However, he faces stiff competition from fellow hot heads Jose Mourinho (8/1) and Mark Hughes (9/1). Mourinho, who seems to crave aggrevating the officials and the FA, has been sent to the stands on numerous occasions, as has Hughes, with both bosses given their marching orders last season.

Louis van Gaal

Elsewhere Harry Redknapp, Louis van Gaal and Tony Pulis all look tempting at 12/1. New Man Utd boss Van Gaal will experience his first taste of Premier League action in just over a week’s time when the Red Devils take on Swansea in the season-opener. Given his history the outspoken Dutchman will explode at some point this crusafe. The question is when. The former Barcelona boss is prone to outbursts and will not shy away from giving the referee a piece of his mind if he feels that United have been wronged in some way or another.

Meanwhile the Premier League Sack Race favourite Sam Allardyce catches the eye at 14/1 to be the first boss to be ordered to the stands, whereas Arsene Wenger could prove to be a successful punt at 22/1.
