Moyes is sack race favourite

David Moyes has become a heavy favourite to be the first manager to get the boot in a list which includes two other former Hammers.

Two games and two defeats have seen Moyes become 2/1 for the bullet with a former Hammer Scott Parker second favourite at 5/1.

Slaven Bilic – another with two defeats behind him at West Brom – is a surprising 8/1 to be kicked out of the Hawthorns behind Jose Mourinho at 6/1.

David Moyes is the early favourite to become the first manager to be sacked

West Ham, with zero points, sit above the drop zone on goal difference only, ahead of Fulham, Southampton and the Baggies.

Next up in the league, West Ham will play Wolves, Leicester, Tottenham, Manchester City and Liverpool in a horror run of matches.

With that in mind, Moyes has now been installed as the bookies’ favourite to become the first manager to be sacked in the Premier League at 2/1 with Ladbrokes.

On the Premier League sack race, Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: “West Ham’s fixture list doesn’t exactly favour David Moyes.

“There’s every chance he’ll be out of the door by the end of October if the latest odds are anything to go by.”

  1. I would be very disappointed if this were to happen – and it is a sad reflection on our club that Moyes is favourite for the sack – this is based on two things a) our getting off to a bad start and having a tough fixture list – which is just bad luck and b) unfortunately contrary to what they say and also to the West Ham tradition, GSB have shown a great willingness to fire managers (Zola, Grant, BFS, Bilic, Moyes, Pelle) is quite a list for a 10-year reign

  2. The odds are far too short, think Lampard or Solksjaer might be more attractive bets.

  3. Ridiculous, my money stays in pocket!

  4. Moyes was the ante post favourite for the sack race. All has happened is that his odds like our relegation odds have simply contracted naturally after two games

    This is not based on money from the right accounts. It’s also worth bearing in mind how little cash a) it takes to move these markets b) how little they will allow you to get on unless your running a loosing account

  5. Ridiculous; obviously these people have got nothing better to do, than speculate after 2 league games; Moyes teams have always started slowly, but then gain in strength, as witnessed by the last time he was here and the current standings. It would be a tragedy if he were sacked, and I have faith in him to make us the team the previous two incumbents of his role, failed to manage.
