Odds on New West Ham Manager
Ladbrokes don't hold out much hope of Curbishley remaining as West Ham manager and claim that Graeme Souness is the odds on favourite to take over the job.
Souness is 3-1
Sven-Goran Eriksson is available at 7-1
Paul Ince is 33-1
Teddy Sheringham is 33-1
and Alan Pardew is 25-1 for a shock return.
There doesn't seem much to please West Ham fans in these choices. Sheringham might be the most popular with fans but his lack of managerial experience is a worry and I'm not sure the players will be able to afford the losses at the poker table.
Paul Ince looks an interesting bet at 33-1, especially if he teams up with Glenn Roeder as deputy manager and Fat Frank Lampard as a player-coach.
