Next Millwall Manager Odds
It goes without saying that Millwall Football club have a reputation country wide of being a difficult fanbase for both managers and oppositions to handle. However, when a manager gets the team playing well, their fanbase can be one of the best in the country for getting behind their team, after narrowly missing out on play-off positions in the last two seasons, former manager Gary Rowett experienced a successful time at Millwall. In 2023/24; unfortunately, Millwall have drifted closer to the Championship relegation places than the playoffs and Rowett has subsequently lost his job.
As per Rowett's sacking, the Den had turned from one of the hardest places to go in the Championship to the easiest, only six teams took three points from the Den in 2022/23, this season 4/7 teams have gone away with all three points. Including Bristol City, who also sacked their manager just a week later than Millwall.
Who is the favourite to replace Gary Rowett?
When looking at potential candidates to replace Gary Rowett, there are a number of factors that need to be taken into consideration for any club. For Millwall, some of those factors can be found below.
In regards to names that have been mentioned Nathan Jones, Michael Beale and Joe Edwards sit as the favourites with Jones leading the betting odds. The welshman is best known for his time at Luton Town but his most recent spell at Southampton is a significant blemish on his resume. If he was to be the new manager, he would have to have a good start to push that poor spell out of fans memories. However, Jones has had a seven year managerial career and is over 45 years old, so doesn't match the profile of their recent managers, could a change of mentality be in place for their next boss?
Could Michael Beale or Joe Edwards be the next Millwall Manager?
The unknown commodity here, is Joe Edwards, who is the current caretaker manager of the England U20's team and could be selected as the next Millwall manager in what would be regarded as a huge risk.
A name that ticks all the boxes is former Rangers manager Michael Beale who began his managerial career with a successful spell in the Championship with Queens Park Rangers. When you take into consideration how QPR have performed in Beale's absence, it wouldn't be a surprise if the former Rangers boss was the next manager in the door at Millwall.
Another name who could be considered by the Millwall board is former Birmingham City manager John Eustace, who was sacked with Birmingham City 6th in the Championship and subsequently replaced by Wayne Rooney.
