Mick Mac next to be shown the door?

After suffering a heavy 5-1 defeat in the Black County derby yesterday, Mick McCarthy has woken up this morning to find himself odds-on with most bookmakers to be the next manager to be booted out.

Irish bookmaker Paddy Power make the former Republic of Ireland boss 5/6 favourite to go next.

Wolves were thrashed 5-1 at Molineux by midland rivals West Brom in Sunday’s live 4:00pm kick-off and with boos ringing around the ground following the full-time whistle, McCarthy now finds himself under immense pressure to turn things around.

His side have won only 1 of their last 11 league games, with that coming against a 10-man QPR side, and now find themselves in the relegation zone on goal difference. Despite this McCarthy remained defiant in his post-match interview insisting, “We have played very well in recent weeks and I cannot question the performances.

“I wouldn’t have done anything differently against Chelsea and Tottenham and I couldn’t have done anything to make us any better.”

McCarthy took charge of Wolves in 2006 and this was his 100th defeat in charge of the Midlands side.

Last night Twitter was rife with rumours that McCarthy had been fired, but senior sources at Molineux were quick to rubbish them.

This morning has also seen rumours spread surrounding Andre Villas-Boas‘ future, resulting in the odds on the Chelsea manager to leave being cut from 7/1 to 11/4 following his side’s 2-0 defeat at Goodison Park on Saturday; a defeat that saw Chelsea slip to fifth in the Premier League table and 17 points behind Manchester City.

Harry Redknapp is next in the betting at 6/1. Though unlikely to be sacked his price reflects the fact that the Tottenham boss is odds-on favourite to become the next England manager.

Got something to say?
