Steve Coppell Odds On Favourite for Hull Cityby Steve Claridge / 09 November 2009, 14:42Tweet
Steve Coppell is the strong odds-on favourite to be the Next Hull city Manager as Phil Brown continues to come under pressure, despite The Tigers grabbing a win at home to Stoke on Sunday which may keep him in a job for the time being at least. Brown has endured a torrid start to the season so far and with a new owner on board it is thought that Brown could go at anytime if results do not start to pick up. Coppell has not been in a job since leaving Reading at the end of last season and his experienced head is thought to give him the edge in the race for the hot seat, SkyBetcertainly believe that Coppell is the man for the job having installed him as the odds-on favourite.
Hull cannot afford to be relegated and like most clubs these days will react sooner rather than later if the club appears to be slipping towards the trap door which is why The Tigers win against Stoke was so vital for Phil Brown and his future. City were 1-0 down at one stage and things were looking grim with the axe lingering above his head but a spirited comeback will have pleased the board and fans before the Premier League takes a couple of weeks off for the International break. Our Sack-O-Meter is showing that Phil Brown is very much in last chance saloon and will need to follow up that win against Stoke with a positive result against West Ham on the 21st November if he wants to keep his job.
Other names in the frame for the Next Hull City Manager Odds with SkyBetinclude former Premier League Managers such as Paul Jewell, Alan Curbishley Peter Taylor who all look like possible candidates for the top job at Hull. However, contacts close to the Sack Race inform us that Coppell is the front runner for the job should Brown get the boot which does seem imminent if things do not continue to pick up following the Stoke victory.
