Which PL bosses will still have their job on New Year’s Eve 2015?
Let’s face it, there is a hire and fire mentality in Premier League football. And this inconvenient truth got Coral’s football experts thinking about which managers would still be holding down their jobs at the end of 2015?
Neil Warnock (Crystal Palace) and Alan Irvine (West Bromwich Albion) couldn’t make it until New Year’s Eve 2014, so we’re asking who, if anyone, can still be in the hotseat when December 31st 2015 comes around?
Having recently been confronted by a fan during the New Year’s Day defeat at Southampton, there are clearly some sections of the Arsenal support that feel long-serving boss Wenger should go. He is odds-on at 2/5, however, to still be Gunners gaffer at the end of 2015, but an intriguing 7/4 chance to have gone by then.
So much money spent by Liverpool manager Rodgers this past summer for so little return. His transfer policy, with the exception of Adam Lallana, has sadly been flop after flop. Rodgers is thus a short 6/4 to not be in charge at Anfield come December 31st, though odds-on at 1/2 to hold on as Reds boss.
As Leicester City prop up the Premier League table, we offer equal odds of 5/6 for Foxes boss Pearson to still be in place at the King Power Stadium on New Year’s Eve, and to have alternatively left the East Midlands outfit.
QPR manager Redknapp is out of contract this coming summer at Loftus Road, and talks over a new deal were shelved earlier in the season when the Hoops’ form was not so good. Although he’s odds-on at 4/7 to still be in charge on December 31st, Redknapp is 5/4 to no longer have the reins in west London.
West Ham’s Big Sam is a survivor, and has brought a refreshing change of style to Upton Park, which explains why he is odds-on at 1/3 to remain Hammers boss at the end of the calendar year. If things take another turn, however, tasty odds of 9/4 say Allardyce will no longer be in charge.
