Well would you believe it , we just checked on the odds for the Newcastle head coach position and we were expecting to see Remi Garde as the odds on favorite – as talks have reportedly began between him and Newcastle, but he’s not even the favorite at the moment.
Tim Sherwood – the new favorite
There must have been an awful lot of money come in for Tim Sherwood because he’s listed at evens on SkyBet, and his odds have shortened on all the betting sites.
Here is the latest betting on SkyBet for the Newcastle head coach position:
Tim Sherwood 1/1
Remi Garde 5/2
John Carver 13/2
Frank de Boer 10/1
One thing Tim has in his favor is that he’s available and if offered the job, he would probably take it.
It would be interesting to know if he’s on the short list for Newcastle, and we suppose if he is, there’s no harm in talking to Tim, although he doesn’t tend to take any BS.
And he may not accept all the restrictions placed on the head coach at Newcastle by Mike Ashley.
Tim did very well when he took over at Tottenham last season from mid December of 2013, through the end of the season, when his win rate was exactly 50%.
His record at Spurs was played 28, won 14, drew 4 and lost 10 for a win rate of 50% and a loss rate of 36%.
Tim plays attacking football and has worked with the youngsters at Spurs, and he is currently waiting in the wings for a suitable coaching appointment to come along.
He was appointed Spurs head coach just before Xmas in 2013, when he got an 18-month contract until the end of this season, but the 45 year-old was sacked by Chairman Daniel Levy on 13th May 2014 – unlucky for some.
