Sherwood Favourite For Vacant Palace Job!

It is Tim Sherwood who is the early favourite to become the next Crystal Palace manager although Tony Pulis is the 6/1 second favourite according to William Hill.

“You would have thought that Tim Sherwood would have been snapped up by now after a not too disasterous stint at Spurs and he leads the race but Pulis making himself available would be a late Christmas present for Palace and their fans,” said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly.

Next Crystal Palace manager: 7/2 Tim Sherwood; 6/1 Tony Pulis; 7/1 Chris Hughton; 7/1 Tony Popovic; 8/1 Dougie Freedman; 12/1 Karl Robinson; 12/1 Paul Clement; 14/1 Keith Millen; 16/1 Martin Jol; 20/1 Eddie Howe; 2/1 Gareth Southgate; 20/1 Nigel Adkins; 20/1 Uwe Rosler; 25/1 BAR
