Bookies got Pelle’s odds SO WRONG

They love to tell you the bookies are never wrong and that money talks!

WRONG!

Do you recall the odds against Manuel Pellegrini being the first manager to leave the Premier League a couple of weeks back. He was 3/1.

It was never a bet and made no sense whatsoever as is now being demonstrated by Unibet who have him priced at 20/1 to suffer such a fate.

So no axing for Pelle but the guy into whose team the Hammers put the boot is in serious trouble with the firm.

They have slashed their prices on Mourinho being the first to leave  again, following the 3-1 loss to West Ham.

The Portuguese not so special one is priced at 11/10 to lose his job.

The odds have shortened probably as a result of United’s poor results continuing  coupled with an upturn in form at other sides.

  1. On point C&H. This Hammers team is the first in several seasons to play with an understanding of their own structure, and organisation. Sack Pellegrini? Jog on… Pellegrini seems to have this squad playing to its potential and actual strengths in order to minimise its limitations. That is leadership. I was a Slaven fan, still am, yet the Pellegrini regime is shaping a team that is producing quality football (win, lose or draw). The Pellegrini regime seems to be demonstrating the leadership that has been missing for several seasons. Sack him? Bookies were way off point. The Pellegrini regime is providing an approach the players are responding to. And off pitch Pellegrini has deflected negative, even if appropriate attention away from Sullivan and Brady. Lets hope this is the turn round moment for the Irons. The Club and Fans deserve a change in fortune.

  2. Makes the usual knee-jerk suspects on here, who wanted Moyes back after only 4 games, look a bit foolish. I’ve not seen any comments from them lately. COYI.

  3. The bookies still won out of any one that put a bet on it.
