Bet on Moyes to be next Premier League boss to leave

| 18.02.2011

David Moyes may represent the best value at 7/1 in the Premier League betting to be the next manager to leave their post as there is every chance that his patience may finally run out at Everton.

Moyes has been in the Goodison Park hotseat since 2002 and has consistently achieved good results, despite working on a shoestring budget in comparison to many of the other bosses finishing in the top-half of the Premier League standings.

However, this season has proved far more of a struggle as they are currently just three points above the relegation places with 12 games of the campaign remaining.

It is largely believed that a lack of a proven prolific goalscorer is one of the big problems at Everton, particularly as Louis Saha continues to have his injury troubles.

Moyes will know that one big-spending summer could be a major catalyst to Everton potentially breaking into the top four as they are realistically only a winger and a striker short of vying for Champions League football, alongside some consistency.

But Moyes has already been told that spending funds will also be minimal in the coming summer, as despite his wheeling and dealing in the transfer market, the club recently announced growing debts.

Although Moyes is unlikely to leave Everton in the lurch in the middle of the season, it is highly plausible that he will decide at the end of the campaign that he has done all he can for the club and leave for pastures new.

If any more managers are to leave before the end of the season, then West Ham’s Avram Grant is considered the favourite at 5/4, while Chelsea’s Carlo Ancelotti is priced at 5/1.

A £25 stake on Alex McLeish being the next Premier League boss out of a job would return £150. New customers can sign up here for a free £25 bet.
