The thing about the Sack Race is that as soon as a manager ‘wins' it there's immediately a new favourite in the frame.

After the weekend departures of Daniel Farke and Dean Smith, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer (1/2) is top of the market to be next to be relieved of his duties in the Premier League.

Those odds don't look very favourable for Ole after a weekend defeat to Man City in which a two-goal deficit was kind to the Red Devils. Patience is wearing thin among the United fans but with Ed Woodward's departure from the club imminent, will he be preapred to pull the trigger as one of his final acts at the helm at Old Trafford?

Former Liverpool boss, Brendan Rodgers emerged as favourite for Solksjaer's job at the weekend and is priced at 5/6 currently, ahead of Zinedine Zidane (5/1) and Mauricio Pochettino at 10s.

Aston Villa's need for a new manager is more immediate and Rangers gaffer Steven Gerrard has been installed as 10/11 favourite by Paddy Power. The Liverpool legend delivered the Scottish Premiership title for Rangers last season and his side hold a four point lead at the top the table against a much more competitive Celtic this season, so his stock couldn't be higher. Would he be tempted by the former champions of Europe to move back down south?

The success of the Danish national team hasn't gone unnoticed and boss Kasper Hjulmand (4/1) is said to be on the Villa Board's shortlist and that would be a bold appointment.

Or will former Villa assistant manager John Terry take the leap into management as head coach back at Villa Park? Paddy Power have installed him as second favourite for the gig at 4/1. His former teammate at Chelsea, Frank Lampard, is 12s.

However, the bookies seem to think Lampard os more likely to take over at Carrow Road where he was odds-on initially and can now be backed at 2/1.

Also on the Norwich City shortlist is Bodo/Glimt's boss Kjetil Knutsen who has been cut from 16/1 to 5/2. It's only a matter of time before someone takes a chance on the Norwegian after a record breaking season in Eliteserien last year which delivered Glimt's first title in sensational style. Of course their 6-1 win over Roma a few weeks made him the talk of Europe and now could be a good time to nick him from under the noses of some of the continent's more fashionable clubs.

As we head in to the international break it'll be interesting to see where we're at once club football resumes and which new faces will be in place.

The EFL Trophy is just about all we've got to look forward to this week but Monday night sees the conclusion of this weekend's FA Cup matches with Dagenham & Redbridge v Salford City live on ITV4. Tolu reckons it could be an entertaining game in his match preview. Fingers crossed!

    Antofagasta v La Serena
    Chilean Primera Division

    BTTS 4-5 (shit price so DOUBLE STAKE) 🇨🇱 NAP 🇨🇱…
    BTTS and over 2.5 goals 13-10 🇨🇱 NB 🇨🇱.
    Both at HILLS.

    Antofagasta scored in 13 of 15 homes.
    Antofagasta scored in all 10 head to head here of which 7 were BTTS and overs.

    13 of last 17 head to heads seen btts and over 2.5

    Serena scored in 9 of last 10 games.
    Serena scored in 7 of 8 aways.
    Serena scored in 8 of 10 head to head here.

    Reverse fixture in August ended 1-1
    Fixture here in February 2-2

    Prediction 2-1

  12. elvis parsley 4 weeks ago

    Nicaragua under 20 v Cayman Islands under 20 at 11pm has some different prices for BTTS.
    HILLS 7-4
    SKYBET 10-11
    BETFAIR 17-20.

    It’s a LONGSHOT in my opinion and the 7-4 is probably more realistic than the other 2 mingy prices.
    If my Chile effort wins might have a small investment at 7-4, but it will be a small interest only bet 😁

    Evening gents,

    Rubbish weekend for me – well done anyone with winners!

    Fair to say my form is poor at the moment and it’s difficult to maintain a high level of confidence when the chips are down but I do think the bookies have underestimated a few factors in this Paraguayan fixture:


    Olimpia find themselves in a pretty much unprecedented shocker of a situation at the foot of the table with even their usually excellent home form is going to pot.

    It’s a H2H that has always been a good one for goals and there’s every reason to suspect this will be the case again as both sides fight to climb away from a relegation spot.

    I fancy the following:

    (5/6, bet365) NAP ⭐⭐⭐

    OVER 3.5 GOALS
    (5/4, bet365) NB ⭐⭐

    (10/1, bet365) LONGSHOT ⭐

    Best of luck!

    Don’t know what is going on with the Tenerife v Girona game, one minute Tenerife have a corner and Girona none, 10 minutes later it’s the opposite, 10 minutes later it’s back to the original stat.

    There’s 4 games to go in the Norwegian league and bodo are 5pts clear. There’s absolutely no chance of Knutsen leaving before the end of the season.

      No, Terry was with Vanessa Peroncel, who was Bridge’s girlfriend & a lingerie model.
