Gamble hots up on Pardew leaving Palace
Leading bookmaker Coral has seen a big gamble on Alan Pardew being the next Premier League manager to leave their club this morning in which the firm has been forced to slash their odds into 8-11 (from 9-4). Bob Bradley is second in the market at 2-1, while Hull’s Mike Phelan is 8-1 to be the next to depart.
“There is rarely no smoke without fire therefore this gamble may suggest Alan Pardew is under big pressure to keep his job at Crystal Palace as we head into a busy festive programme of football in the Premier League,” said Coral’s John Hill.
