Prepare The Axe! Odds Plummet For Next Premier League Manager To Go

There's only been one managerial casualty so far this season
There's only been one managerial casualty so far this season

You could almost smell the delight emanating out of Neil Warnock as his Cardiff City side wreaked revenge on Nuno Espirito Santo’s Wolverhampton Wanderers in the Friday Night Football match in South Wales, even more delightfully coming from one goal behind to snatch a 2-1 win.

Before the match, memories had already been evoked of the scenes last year when the prickly Warnock remonstrated furiously to his Wolves counterpart running onto the pitch following a 1-0 win in their Championship meeting last season.

But this week at the Cardiff City Stadium Neil Warnock’s side confined Wolves to their six straight Premier League defeat and allow the odds to tumble for Santo to be the next manager to go.

The price on Santo’s head has gradually been moving further in since the start of October when the disastrous run started.

Wolves are now in the midst of their worst period since the Portuguese took over at the club last summer, with just a single point picked up in their last 18 available.

A 66/1 reckoning for Santo to depart - when there was even audacious talk of European qualification - has now drifted in to just 8/1 (betvictor) as Wolves have slipped into the bottom half of the table.

That is now the second shortest price for a manager to leave his post, behind only the beleaguered Mark Hughes of Southampton ahead of him in the running (odds on at 1/4).

In 2017/18 Wolves won the Championship with 99 points last term. Cardiff followed nine points behind in second place to secure automatic promotion up to the English top tier.

An ominous meeting with Chelsea is next on the agenda for the Black Country club. Yet another successive loss could mean time is actually up on Santo’s tenure.
