Update: 14.10.21

 

Former Chelsea boss Frank Lampard is new favourite to take the reins at St James’ Park in the event of Steve Bruce being dismissed by the new club owners in the coming days or weeks.

Pressure is continuing to mount on under-fire manager Frank Lampard and several names are in the frame to replace him on Tyneside, however Frank Lampard has emerged as one of the leading candidates to take charge of the winless Magpies. Priced at 25/1 just a few days ago, the former Derby County and Chelsea boss is now a best price of 11/4 to take the reins, leaving him clear at the top off the market and well ahead of perceived closest rival Lucien Favre.

Punters are increasingly keen on the former Three Lions midfielder and he has been out of work since leaving Chelsea in January. Over the past 24 hours, Lampard has attracted most bets on the market and he replaces former favourite Brendan Rodgers at the top of the betting, the Leicester City boss drifting from 2/1 to as high as 10/1.

Several 8/1 shots remain in contention, including Antonio Conte, Steven Gerrard and Roberto Martinez, while assistant Graeme Jones is next at 14/1. Eddie Howe and Ralf Rangnick are priced at 16/1 apiece.

Things really aren’t looking too good for Steve Bruce right now and with Newcastle United having collected just three points in the Premier League this season, it should come as no surprise to see him priced as short as 1/12 to be the next managerial casualty in the top-flight.

Newcastle United manager Steve Bruce continues to take training, however his days at St James’ Park are almost certainly numbered. The big question is, who will take the reins in the event of Bruce being dismissed?

Following the news last week that Newcastle United were to be taken over by new Saudi owners, there have been big question marks surrounding the future of unpopular manager Steve Bruce and speculation as to who his successor might be.

Over the past couple of days, the odds on Leicester City manager Brendan Rodgers being appointed as Magpies boss have been comprehensively slashed. The former Celtic manager was a general 16/1 shot for the position less than 48 hours ago, however he can now be backed as short as 2/1 to succeed Bruce in the coming days or weeks.

Punters have been backing Rodgers in their droves to trade the King Power Stadium for St James’ Park.

 

Other contenders

Current second-favourite to take charge of the Magpies is Frank Lampard at 5/1 who has been without a managerial position since leaving Chelsea. Lucien Favre is next in the betting market at a general 8/1, the former Borussia Dortmund coach having been sacked by the Bundesliga side in December 2020. He has been taking a break from management but it is believed that he is ready to make a return.

There’s a revolution taking place at Newcastle United right now and Rangers boss Steven Gerrard is one of the names in the mix as the new club owners decide what to do with current manager Steve Bruce.

Mike Ashley’s 14-year reign at St James’ Park has come to an end and the fog on the Tyne appears to have lifted somewhat, however it remains to be seen whether the club’s new Saudi owners decide to send Steve Bruce packing. In reality, it is very likely that they will decide on a change of manager given Bruce’s abject failure to steer the Magpies to anything approaching a league win this season, however the big question is, who will they bring in to replace him?

With Bruce looking like a man condemned, the bookies have been pricing up possible replacements and a new favourite has emerged in the form of Ibrox boss Steven Gerrard. The former Liverpool man took his Rangers side to the Scottish Premiership title last season – thus stopping arch-rivals Celtic from making it ten on the bounce – and he would certainly prove a popular appointment on Tyneside. Newcastle director Amanda Staveley has made it clear that she wishes the Magpies to become a dominant force in Europe and few managers have a track record in continental competition as good as Gerrard.

As a player, Gerrard won a Champions League winner’s medal with Liverpool and he made it into another final in 2007. As part of a treble in 2001, he lifted the UEFA Cup with the Reds and he has excelled on his migration from pitch to touchline with Rangers.

Some bookmakers have now made Gerrard 4/1 to take the reins at St James’ Park in the event that Bruce is given the heave-ho in the coming days or weeks (probably the former). Former AFC Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe and former Chelsea manager Antonio Conte remain genuine contenders at a general 5/1 apiece while Rafael Benitez is an 8/1 punt to leave Goodison Park and move to Tyneside.

 


 

Update: 07.10.21

 

The odds on former Inter Milan manager Antonio Conte taking the reins at St James’ Park have tumbled following the takeover announcement made by the club yesterday.

It seems as though Mike Ashley’s lengthy tenure at Newcastle United could come to an end following the announcement that the club is to be bought by new Saudi owners. This news has come out of the blue for Newcastle fans and it will be a huge relief following years of disappointment. This disappointment has rarely been bigger than this season with Steve Bruce’s men still looking for their first league win of the campaign and sitting second from bottom in the Premier League table.

When (or if) the takeover goes ahead in the coming days or weeks, the likelihood is that the new owners will dispense with the services of Steve Bruce in order to bring in their own man. The bookmakers make Bruce 1/4 favourite to be the next Premier League manager to leave his post and the odds on Antonio Conte replacing him in the St James’ Park hot-seat have shortened considerably.

Former Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe is favourite to be next in charge with many bookmakers, however some firms make Antonio Conte current leader in the market, William Hill going 6/1 that he is appointed as next Newcastle United boss and some going as short as 9/2. The same firm goes 7/1 on Howe getting the gig, while current assistant Graeme Jones is a 9/1 shot as things stand.

Steve Bruce is now 7/2 to become the first managerial casualty in the Premier League this season and as such, attention is turning to who might succeed him in the St James’ Park dug-out.

Having failed to win any of their seven competitive outings this season, Newcastle United may soon be looking for a new manager. The bookies go just 7/2 that Steve Bruce is next in line for the chop in the top-flight and to be fair, such an occurrence couldn’t come soon enough for large sections of the Toon Army supporters. Nevertheless getting rid of one boss is easy, the hard part is finding a suitable successor and with Newcastle struggling in the lower reaches of the Premier League table after six games, the board need to consider their options carefully.

Eddie Howe remains the out-and-out favourite at 5/4 to succeed Steve Bruce should he be sacked in the coming days or weeks, the former AFC Bournemouth manager without a club right now and as such, immediately available should the St James’ Park hot-seat become available. Howe guided Bournemouth up from the bottom of League Two to the top-flight for the first time in their history and he succeeded in keeping the Cherries in the Premier League for several seasons.

Chris Wilder is the only other candidate at single figures in the ‘Next Newcastle Manager’ betting market at just 4/1, the former Sheffield United boss also without a job since leaving Bramall Lane. Assistant Graeme Jones is a 10/1 shot to take the reins in the event of Bruce being sacked while former Chelsea boss Frank Lampard is 12/1 to replace the current boss. Club legend Alan Shearer is 12/1 to be appointed in the role while Roberto Martinez completes the top six in the betting at 14/1.

Newcastle United have collected just two points from their opening five Premier League games and boss Steve Bruce is second-favourite in the Premier League Sack Race betting market, therefore it’s little wonder that speculation is mounting with regard to who his likely successor will be.

Newcastle United doubled their points tally when they held Leeds United to a 1-1 draw last weekend and with the Magpies still sitting firmly in the bottom three in the Premier League table, manager Steve Bruce finds himself a man under immense pressure. Bruce has never really been a hugely popular figure on Tyneside and few there would mourn his departure, however who would replace him in the St James’ Park hot-seat in the event that he does actually vacate it?

Assistant Graeme Jones has long been touted as a likely successor to Bruce and for many weeks he topped the betting market, however from being just over Evens to take charge only a couple of weeks ago, Jones is now out at 4/1. Instead, former AFC Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe is now been seen as the most likely contender should the managerial position at St James’ Park become available in the coming weeks.

Following the weekend draw with Leeds United, activity on the market has been pretty intense and the money has been poured towards Howe taking the reins. Indeed over the past 24 hours his odds have been slashed from a general 6/1 to as low as 6/4 with some bookies.

Jones is currently joint-second favourite to take charge in the event of Bruce being sacked alongside former Sheffield United boss Chris Wilder at 4/1. Frank Lampard and Alan Shearer are each a 12/1 punt for the hot-seat while Roberto Martinez is priced at a general 14/1.

The international break has provided some relief for the handful of under-fire managers in the Premier League but they will return to the firing line once the league action returns in a little over a weeks’ time. The likes of Mikel Arteta, Xisco Munoz and Patrick Vieira will be feeling the pressure right now, however one of the favourites to be next managerial casualty in the top-flight is Magpies boss Steve Bruce.

Bruce managed to haul his Newcastle United clear of the relegation zone towards the end of the 2020/21 campaign but the Magpies have launched their new season in thoroughly dismal fashion. Bruce’s men opened their account with back-to-back Premier League defeats to West Ham United (2-4) and Aston Villa (2-0) before being held to a 2-2 draw by Southampton at St James’ Park last time out. They were also dumped out of the League Cup at the first round stage by Burnley and it’s clear that the board are going to considering their options.

As things stand, Bruce is as low as 6/1 to be next for the chop in the Premier League and should be given the heave-ho, then Graeme Jones is favourite to take his place. Jones aided Gareth Southgate during this summer’s European Championships and helped steer England into their first major international final since 1966, however he will now be returning to his former role as assistant at Newcastle United and the bookies go just 6/5 that he will be given the reins should Bruce leave in the coming weeks.

Elsewhere in the ‘Next Newcastle United Manager’ betting market, former Sheffield United manager Chris Wilder is second favourite at 2/1 to be given the job while ex Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe is next at 6/1.

Now that the European Championships are out of the way, attention is turning to the upcoming 2021/22 season. There are certain to be some managerial casualties in the early stages of the campaign and Steve Bruce remains one of the favourites for the chop, however if the current Magpies boss is shown the door, who will replace him in the St James’ Park dugout?

Steve Bruce gave himself more precious time at Newcastle United thanks to a solid end to the 2020/21 season, however the Magpies struggled throughout the season and their final position of twelfth was no indication of their woes in the earlier stages of the campaign. As such, manager Steve Bruce was under almost constant pressure and while his men avoided relegation by a substantial margin at the end of play, the pressure will be on to get things off to a solid start.

Given that Bruce is deemed to be on the danger list, the bookies have been busy pricing up a likely successor to the under-fire Magpies manager and as things stand, Graeme Jones is being touted as the man most likely to take charge at St James’ Park in the event that the position becomes vacant. Jones was assistant coach at Newcastle United for a brief period from January 2021 to May 2021 when he became part of Gareth Southgate’s coaching staff for the duration of the European Championships. Jones will soon return to Tyneside following his loan spell with the Three Lions and he is a 6/5 punt to take charge of the Magpies.
