City Boss Remains Bookies Favourite

Manchester City's under pressure manager, Mark Hughes has become the bookmakers favourite as the next Premier League manager to lose his job.

Some parts of the world, including Asia are refusing to take any more bets, especially as rumours circulating around the industry suggest Sparky will be out of a job as early as next week. Meanwhile, bookies in the UK are pricing his departure as low as 4/7 favourite.



New manager

Should the ex-Blackburn boss receive his P45 the following names are high up on the bookmakers list of possible candidates.

Mancini R - 4/5
Hiddink G - 9/2
Mourinho J - 15/2
Scolari P - 12/1
Jol M - 20/1
Rijkaard F - 20/1
A Wenger - 25/1
Bilic S - 25/1
Moyes D - 33/1
Eriksson S - 33/1
Houllier G - 33/1
Keegan K - 50/1

I have no doubt Mark's future will be look an awful lot better if City beat Sunderland on Saturday. Should the wheel however come off and the Black Cats get something from the game...well, I wonder?

Maybe hughes needs another 200 million to waste... i mean spend. Even if city finish 17th, ADUG wont sack him till the end of the season. I hope they sack him now and get a decent manager. Villa, spurs and BIRMINGHAM havent got better players than city. They have proven, experienced managers that have won throphies.

I'm concerned that if we make a wholesale backroom change mid season we could be in aright mess, much as I am deeply worried about the direction things are taking.

What happened to the chump of a fat waiter Rafa being favourite.

The above odds were a select few. Yes, Rafa was on the short list but so was a certain ex-England manager who's now applying his trade in Holland.
Tudor
Usual suspects for me, I am surprised they didn't throw in Phil Brown and Stuart Pearce aswell at Brian Horton. I also note they didn't quote Wenger especially as he did not rule it out.

What about Peter Reid, Billy Davies, Cook, must be looking at what the bookies think and then working his way down the list.I hope he finds someone before he gets to Houllier. Sorry just spotted wenger at 25/1
