Chris Hughton a good bet to be made the new manager of West Brom

The former Newcastle United boss Chris Hughton could very soon be making a return to the footballing world as the new manager for struggling West Brom replacing Roberto De Matteo who was relieved of his managerial duties at the weekend. Hughton has not been in the game since he was sacked by Newcastle Chairman Mike Ashley on 6th December 2010.

His sacking at Newcastle United came as a surprise for Toon fans and players as the manager had managed to get his side promoted as winners of the Championship with 5 games remaining in the season and had a fairly successful time in the Premier League and although they had suffered a few draws and losses they were still mid-table. However the board at St James Park felt they had to bring in a manager with more experience and replaced Hughton with Alan Pardew.

The betting odds with bookmakers Victor Chandler for the next manager at West Brom has placed Chris Hughton as one of the favourites to be offered the role with odds of just 6/5, there are however several other unemployed managers on the potential list with Roy Hodgson at odds of 4/1 and also the recently departed manager of Sheffield Wednesday, Alan Irvine at odds of 12/1, his placement is unlikely however with him having no experience of managing a side in the top flight. The current caretaker manager of the side, Michael Appleton finds himself at odds of 4/1 to be offered the role on a permanent basis.

Whichever manager that the board decides to move in to the job at the Hawthorns will have his work cut out so the sooner they move the better. The Baggies are currently sitting dangerously at the bottom end of the league table just one spot away from the relegation zone by goal difference alone.
