Last night, we slashed the odds on Alan Pardew succeeding Tony Pulis at West Brom, after a string of chunky bets on the appointment.
We now make the appointment heavily odds-on (1/4), with the closest contenders – Sam Allardyce and Martin O’Neill – both some way back at 6/1.
Spokesman Paddy Power said: “The West Brom fans have been calling out for entertainment. Having seen the impact Pep Guardiola is having at Man City, you can understand why they’d want to go for the next best thing – the Pardiola.
“And, while the play of style probably won’t reach those dizzying heights, Pardew will at least inject life into the dugout – swapping baseball caps for dance moves.”
