Andre Villas-Boas: Heavily backed to be sacked

Andre Villas-Boas has gone odds-on to be the next Premier League manager to leave in the wake of Tottenham's 6-0 drubbing at Manchester City.

Fulham boss Martin Jol had been the clear front-runner for a number of weeks with, but he's now out to 7/4 with Sky Bet and Villas-Boas has taken his place as the 10/11 favourite.

The Portuguese had already been under pressure after criticising the club's home support earlier in the season, while their lack of fire-power up front has only added pressure.

Spurs had been relying on a solid defence up until Sunday, when title favourites City doubled their goals conceded tally with a ruthless display.

Former Porto and Chelsea manager Villas-Boas suggested he was "ashamed" of the loss, prompting punters to pile money on an swift departure.

Sky Bet's Chris Spicer said: "Villas-Boas was a 33/1 chance prior to Sunday's defeat at the Etihad Stadium, but we cut him to 10/1 after the final whistle.

"Interest in the Spurs boss didn't pick up until Monday night, though, and by Tuesday morning he'd been backed into 10/11 favourite, though plenty will be eyeing up Martin Jol's renewed value."

ow is the time for Allardyce to finally get a chance at a big club please. He is likely to have a number of great offers for his services this summer, but who will he choose? Will it be Liverpool, Real Madrid, Dortmund or Man City?

thought exactly this when the Match of the Day pundits were peddling this line. Is it really not okay for fans of a club to have some ambition these days then?
