Martin O’Neill is the 7/2 2nd fav with Stan James to take over at Newcastle following the departure of Chris Hughton, Alan Pardew is 11/4 fav.
Head of PR Charlie McCann; ” From first thing this morning all punters wanted to know was Hughton to be next manager to leave his job and there was no smoke without fire. We have had a number of enquiries about Pardew being the next Geordie boss and whilst he has the necessary managerial experience we aren’t convinced he would be first choice for the Toon army. Indeed we would be surprised if he was still favourite in a couple of hours time such is the volatility of these markets. ”
Meanwhile, Martin O’Neill is the 2/1 fav with Coral bookmakers to take over the managers role at Newcastle, following the sacking of Chris Hughton.
The former Villa boss heads the list of potential of replacements, with three Alan’s, Curbishley, Pardew and Shearer next in the betting, while former Toon star, Peter Beardsley, would be a popular choice with the fans at 16/1.
