Steve Bruce is currently favourite on the Premier League Sack Race betting market and it could be that Newcastle United soon make the decision to part company with a manager who is now struggling to keep the Magpies afloat in the top flight this season.
Although Bruce did manage to keep Newcastle’s heads above water last term, it was hardly inspiring stuff and it’s clear that the former Birmingham and Aston Villa manager was nowhere near first-choice when it came to appointing a successor to the popular Rafael Benitez who had previously guided United back into the big time.
A number of bookmakers are now speculating over the future of Steve Bruce at Newcastle and they have re-opened their Next Newcastle United Manager betting market, with Chris Wilder among the favourites after recently parting company with Sheffield United.
It seems glaringly obvious that Bruce will exit St James’ Park whether that’s before the 2020/21 season ends or shortly afterwards, with owner Mike Ashley considering his next moves when it comes to appointing someone who is going to steer the team further up the table providing that they remain in the top flight.

Chris Wilder Heads the Newcastle United Manager Market
Chris Wilder made a silk purse out of a sow’s ear when it came to the 2019/20 season in charge of Sheffield United, even if he was unable to repeat the same trick this time around, with the 53-year-old recently parting company with the Yorkshire club after completely transforming the fortunes of an outfit who were sitting in League One when he originally took charge.
Wilder will surely not be short of offers when it comes to his next managerial role and many betting apps have the former Northampton and Oxford manager as their betting favourite to replace Bruce at St James’ Park, with this potentially being a role which would interest a manager who would be given a better squad than the one he had at Bramall Lane.
It would be interesting to see whether Wilder would be prepared to work with owner Mike Ashley considering that the latter has reluctantly invested in players over the past few years, with the Sports Direct owner having had the club up for sale which means that there is seemingly no long-term plan in place at the Tyneside club.
Bookmakers' Next Permanent Manager Markets
Howe on the Drift for Newcastle Job
Eddie Howe has been out of work since leaving Bournemouth at the end of the 2019/20 season, with the 43-year-old having been unable to keep the Cherries afloat in the Premier League and he was quick to fall on his sword at the Vitality Stadium and take a break from football management following his successful stint at the Dorset club.
It has now been nearly a year since Howe held this coaching position and perhaps Newcastle will offer him an opportunity to get back into Premier League management, although his odds have been drifting on this betting market in recent weeks and perhaps this wouldn’t be the right fit from a geographical or ambition point-of-view.
There’s something of a Bournemouth connection already at St James’ Park when you consider that Matt Ritchie, Callum Wilson and Ryan Fraser are all on the books at Newcastle and it might be that Howe is attracted to the possibility of resurrecting this massive English football club and steering them further up the table.
Howe has a modern and progressive football philosophy although he will be aware that the Premier League is far more competitive now than when Bournemouth arrived in the top flight a few seasons ago, with clubs like Wolves, Leeds and Leicester among those who are considerably stronger although Howe is a best price 8/1 to replace Bruce.

Could Graeme Jones Be Promoted From Within?
Graeme Jones joined the Newcastle United coaching staff at the end of January, with the Gateshead-born coach having already worked with a number of other high-profile clubs including Wigan Athletic and Swansea City. His installation was apparently not done at the behest of Steve Bruce, although the pair have been working together since that point.
It’s hard to see the actual impact that Jones is making considering that the Magpies continue to struggle in the lower reaches of the Premier League, although Jones is as short as 6/5 to replace Bruce and become the next Newcastle manager and it might see logical for him to make the step up considering that he was recently added to the club’s payroll.
It will be interesting to see how the situation develops at St James’ Park and it could be that a swift departure by Bruce opens up the opportunity for Jones to demonstrate to Mike Ashley that he can rebuild the current squad and have them firing ahead of the new season, irrespective of the division in which they find themselves.
Benitez as Short as 9/2 for Newcastle Return
The supporters would love to hear the news that Rafael Benitez is coming back to the Toon and some bookies have the Spaniard as short as 9/2 to take charge of the Magpies for a second occasion. However, it’s tough to see how the former Liverpool boss would take charge unless the club underwent a change of ownership at the top.
After all, it appeared that Benitez and Mike Ashley regularly failed to see eye-to-eye when it came to investing in new players and the direction of the club, with the former only prepared to take on a new role providing that there’s a vision for what the team can potentially achieve and ideally that would be winning silverware.

Frank Lampard Among Favourites for Newcastle Gig
It remains to be seen whether Frank Lampard will ever return to football management after his recent stints with Derby County and Chelsea, with the former England international unable to match the expectation level of Roman Abramovich at Stamford Bridge and he was recently replaced by Thomas Tuchel at the west London club, with Lampard now taking stock of the situation.
It’s hard to describe Lampard as a bad manager considering that he did pretty well with Derby during his only season at Pride Park and steered them into the play-offs. This was partly due to the loan acquisitions of Fikayo Tomori, Harry Wilson and Mason Mount, the latter of whom is now a Chelsea and England regular.
However, Lampard is among the betting favourites to become the next manager of Newcastle United and he’s previously demonstrated that he’s not short of ambition, while expectation levels will be a good deal lower at the Tyneside club compared to his short time at Chelsea, with the manager still young and looking for the next step of his career.

Could Roberto Martinez Be a Surprise Appointment?
One notable name on the Next Newcastle United Manager betting market is Roberto Martinez who continues to fare well as the manager of Belgium and will lead the Red Devils into the forthcoming Euro 2020 tournament with plenty of confidence that the team can conquer Europe considering that the squad is dripping with talent.
However, Martinez has always been a young international manager and it will be interesting to see whether he fancies returning to domestic management instead, with the Spaniard having plenty of experience when it comes to managing British football clubs considering that he’s taking charge of Wigan, Swansea and Everton.
Indeed, he has a strong connection to Graeme Jones who is the assistant manager to Steve Bruce right now and it doesn’t take a flight of fancy to join the dots and come up with the possibility that we’ll see Martinez return to the Premier League and take on the massive task of trying to restore the fortunes of Newcastle United.
