Only 2 games into the season and Alan Curbishley, the manager of English Premiership soccer club West Ham United, is directing the pack as much as who bookies believe is going to be the 1st to get fired.
Online bookmakers BlueSq.com have the previous manager of Charlton Athletic as its 2/1 favorite to acquire the sack whilst VictorChandler.com has cut down its odds lately from 7/4 to 6/4. Enthusiasts of the London-based club hissed Curbishley on Wednesday following his team required additional time to defeat League Two strugglers Macclesfield Town in the Carling Cup tournament at home whilst the sale of protector Anton Ferdinand to Sunderland this week and unrelenting rumors that striker Craig Bellamy is off to Manchester City have not assisted the job forecast of the 50-year-old London native.
Filing the number 2 position is new Manchester City boss Mark Hughes, who is 11/2 with VictorChandler.com and 8/1 with 888Sport.com. The previous Manchester United and Chelsea player only moved to Eastland in the summer from Blackburn Rovers but is now chose to leave as the club is overwhelmed by monetary troubles and insecurity over the future of owner Thaksin Shinawatra.
Everton boss David Moyes could as well leave instead of being fired as the Liverpool-based club struggles to supply him with the cash he requires to toughen the group that finished in 5th position last season. The Scot is 7/1 with Ladbrokes.com while 888Sport has him at 10/1.
