Tony Pulis: Backed to be the next Middlesbrough manager

The former Stoke boss heads the betting at 7/4 followed by Martin O'Neill (6/1), Nigel Clough (10/1) and Roberto Di Matteo (16/1), having also previously been the early favourite for the Derby job.

Mowbray was relieved of his position following Saturday's 3-2 defeat at Barnsley, which left Boro with a solitary win in their last 10 games and saw their Sky Bet Championship relegation odds cut to 6/1.

Sky Bet Football Trader Chris Spicer said: "Tony Pulis is the natural favourite for any Championship vacancy given his record of transforming Stoke into a solid Premier League outfit, but it remains to be seen whether he would be a popular choice among the fans given his brand of football.

"We installed him as the 5/2 favourite initially and have cut his price slightly to 7/4 as he attracts more money than any of the other candidates on our list."

Odds subject to change.

still can't see the Phil Jones thing that some people go on about. Whenever I watch him play it's a repeat of headless chicken meets a gurning Bambi on ice for 90 minutes.

robably the first list I've come across in a long time where I agree with a large majority of what was written. Can't agree with everything though, Zaba has had an awful season by his standards, I'd put Monreal (a player who I've never rated) up there, gotta give credit where it's due, he's really stepped up his game.
