The Magpies were cut from 9/2 to 3/1 for the drop after Reading boosted their own survival chances with a comeback 2-1 win at St James' Park on Saturday, while fellow strugglers Aston Villa and QPR all picked up points.

With just four points from their last eight games, Pardew's men currently sit just two points clear of the drop zone.

Saturday's defeat prompted Sky Bet to slash Pardew from 12/1 to 5/1 to be the next top-flight boss to depart, but subsequent backing saw his price cut to 1/2 on Sunday evening.

Fulham manager Martin Jol had been the favourite after a series of bets last week, but has since drifted out to 7/2, while Aston Villa boss Paul Lambert is out to 9/2.

Sky Bet football trader Chris Spicer said: "We cut Pardew's price fairly significantly after the Reading defeat but money has come in ever since, forcing us to continually move his price.

"Suggestions that the club would only have to pay out 12 months of his eight-year contract seems to have fuelled interest, while their upcoming trip to Villa Park now looks an incredibly important fixture for both bosses."

nd we always will love Ozil. I don't really mind if no other team can see just how brilliant he is, or if people think he is rubbish, because we know he is far from it. He is a fantastic player, and if people cannot see that it can only be a good thing, in that he will be at Arsenal for years to come, pulling the strings from behind a glass veil.

like the list and Ozil in particular does seem under appreciated when you look at his stats (an odd thing considering his fee or maybe because of it). Palace have a few and I've always thought Dwight Gayle at Palace was under rated, certainly when you look at his goals per game ratio. You can probably also add Ryan Bertrand at Saints who should be in the England team in my view.

ew Shaun Wright Phillips, there I've said it. If any club offers stupid money we'd be stupid to say no, he's not a potential worldie by any stretch and I feel that after a few years warming the bench at city or Chelsea he'll be back at QPR smoking sheesha pipes under Harry Redknapp.
