Yet again Tim Sherwood finds himself at the centre of what looks to be a sustained gamble on him being the ‘Next Manager To Leave His Post.’
Leading up to the weekend’s football, ‘No Manager to leave’ was heading the betting with the season at this late stage , but the weekend’s results and Sherwood’s alleged antics have seen the Tottenham boss cut to a heavy odds on favourite.
Rumours are doing the rounds that Sherwood, shall we say, may have been involved in an altercation with one of his players, all alleged – and as a result of this and the 4-0 defeat Sherwood now finds himself as 4/6 favourite with Paddy Power to be the next manager to leave (this season).
SkyBet and Stan James go as short as 1/3 on Sherwood, BetVictor and Ladbrokes are 4/6, and William Hill make him 1/2.
No Manager To Leave is now second favourite at 9/4 with William Hill, while Pepe Mel now finds himself out a lofty 10/1 to be next out the door.
The pressure seems to have eased on David Moyes – up until Bayern Munich – as he now finds himself getting a nose bleed with Pepe Mel, now out at 20/1 with SkyBet. What might he be after a Bayern mauling though?
