The next West Brom Manager betting has thrown up some usual suspects.
Tony Pulis getting the push after only two wins in their last 21 Premier League games.
The Baggies currently standing fourth bottom of the top tier without a league win for three months.
There is a very heavy Newcastle United influence in the early betting, with four of the most fancied top six having been employed by NUFC.
Right at the top is former Newcastle striker Michael O’Neill at 6/4, having done a brilliant job with Northern Ireland he deserves a crack at a decent club job.
Sure enough, just behind him in joint second place in the betting is Sam Allardyce, sharing that spot with Aberdeen’s Derek McInnes who turned the Mackems down this summer.
Then we have recently sacked Ronald Koeman and our old friend Alan Pardew, who is only a few weeks short of being out of work for a full year after his Palace sacking.
Sharing 12/1 with Pardew is one-time Newcastle midfielder Gary Megson, he is currently caretaker after the departure of Pulis and managed the Baggies for four years back in 2000-2004.
