Steve Bruce

Next West Brom Manager Odds

West Bromwich Albion are on the lookout for a new manager following the sacking of Steve Bruce following the Baggies' 0-0 draw at home to Luton Town on the weekend.

This result came after a disappointing 1-0 defeat to Preston North End in midweek, seeing the Baggies slide down to 22nd in the table despite having arguably one of the best squads in the division.

Bruce was initially appointed as West Brom manager following Valierien Ismael's sacking back in February. Since then, Bruce has overseen 32 matches, winning eight times and drawing on 12 occasions - equating to a 25% win rate.

Chris Wilder Odds: 7/2

Former Sheffield United manager Chris Wilder comes in as the bookmakers’ favourite for the vacancy at West Brom.

Wilder, was recently sacked as manager of fellow Championship outfit Middlesbrough, however, this will certainly not have dented the 55-year-old’s reputation.

Prior to his failed spell at the Riverside, where he won 18 and drew 11 of 45 matches in charge, Wilder had overseen two promotions at Sheffield United from both League One and the Championship, before impressing in his first season as a Premier League manager (2019/20), as the Blades finished in ninth place, their best finish since the 1991/92 season.

On top of this, Wilder had won League Two with Northampton Town back in 2015/16 and even managed to get Oxford United promoted from the National League in 2010 via the play-offs. Due to his availability, on top of his reputation, Wilder could be a good fit for West Brom.

Wilder is priced at 7/2 to be named as West Brom’s next manager.

Roy Keane Odds: 4/1

Roy Keane comes in as the second favourite for the job at the Hawthorns, with it being no secret that the Irishman would be desperate to get back into club management.

According to several reports, Keane was spotted at Deepdale when West Brom lost 1-0 to Preston North End last week, sparking rumours that the 51-year-old could be in the frame for the role.

The Manchester United legend managed to earn Sunderland promotion from the Championship back in his first season as a manager in 2006/07, before leaving the Black Cats in 2008. Since then, Keane has also had a spell as Ipswich Town boss between April 2009 and January 2011, where he won 28 and drew 25 of his 81 matches in charge.

However, he may have developed his managerial style since then having been assistant manager of Aston Villa, the Republic of Ireland and Nottingham Forest since then.

Keane is priced at 4/1 to succeed Bruce at the Hawthorns.

Sean Dyche Odds: 6/1

Sean Dyche’s name is one that regularly floats around vacant jobs in the Premier League and Championship, however, this one could be a perfect fit.

The former Burnley manager has relocated back to the Midlands, whilst West Brom’s squad is a capable one that could tempt the 51-year-old back into management.

Dyche was a huge success during his time at Burnley, as he earned the Clarets' promotion from the Championship on two separate occasions whilst providing them with a stable platform. Notably, during the 2017/18 season, Burnley qualified for the Europa League play-offs under his guidance.

The appointment of Dyche would be a huge coup for any side in the Championship, as he is a proven Premier League standard manager, having worked wonders on a tight budget at Burnley.

West Brom are priced at 6/1 to appoint Dyche.

Scott Parker Odds: 8/1

Scott Parker is a manager that will be keen to step back into management after his fall-out with Bournemouth earlier on this season after their 9-0 loss to Liverpool.

The 41-year-old has shown that he is a capable Championship manager, having earned promotion with both Fulham and Bournemouth at the first time of asking, having won the play-off with the Whites back in 2020, whilst finishing as Championship runner-up last season with Bournemouth, who accumulated 88 points.

With Parker being available due to not being contracted at a club, perhaps he will be high on the list of priorities for the Baggies.

Parker is priced at 8/1 to join West Brom.
