Next Sheffield United manager Odds

Paul Heckingbottom was sacked as of Sheffield United in December 23'. This came as a surprise to nobody after the dreadful form of the Yorkshire side last season. However, at the end of the season, many expected his replacement Chris Wilder to suffer the same fate. When Wilder is sacked, who will be the next Sheffield United manager?

Betting on the Championship

Chris Wilder is the current Blades manager

Chris Wilder reuniting with the Blades could have been the best thing for both parties, since leaving Sheffield United in March 2021, he won just 21 of the 56 games he has had in charge of Middlesbrough and Watford, which is a win percentage of just 37.5% - before leaving the Blades, the lowest Wilder had anywhere was 38.5% in his 312 games at Halifax Town. In the 2022/23 season, Wilder won just five out of 22 games across two clubs with Premier League aspirations, no where near his usual level of performance.

However, his performance in the Premier League wasn't any better with just an 11% win rate. Will that improve in the Championship? Or will Chris Wilder quickly lose his job.

Who are the outsiders to take on the Sheffield United manager role?

Dean Smith

There was a spell where Dean Smith was being tipped for big things. An exceptional spell laying the groundwork for what Brentford have become was followed by a solid couple of seasons in charge of Aston Villa. However, the Aston Villa board decided that Smith hadn't improved the side following the sale of star player Jack Grealish to Manchester City. Smith has taken the role of manager at Norwich City and Leicester City since then and has ultimately failed with both clubs, leading both to relegation.

Sometimes all a manager needs to get their mojo back is a couple of months R&R, could that be the case for Dean Smith?

Jesse Marsch

Many believe that if Leeds United kept Jesse Marsch at the club, they'd be facing Manchester City and Liverpool this season instead of Rotherham and Huddersfield. The former Leeds United manager was joked at with comparisons to the TV show Ted Lasso. However, after leading Leeds to victory against the likes of Chelsea and Liverpool, Marsch proved a lot of doubters wrong and would likely still do an excellent job in the Premier League if given the job in Yorkshire.

Carlos Corberan

West Bromwich Albion are a side who have quietly gone about their business in the Championship this season and sit in 5th position in the league. Only Leicester City have conceded less goals than the Baggies and as Sheffield United look to solidify their defence - they could well turn to the Baggies manager who has a 49% win rate at the club. There are some manager odds that look a little outrageous but this one, this is a move that makes a lot more sense the deeper you look into it.

Next Premier League Manager to be sacked

There is nothing to say that whoever takes over at Bramall Lane won't be the next manager to be sacked. Erik Ten Hag could be at risk of losing his role at Manchester United and the next manager odds don't look particularly favourable for the likes of Steve Cooper, Vincent Kompany and more. Remember if Sheffield United appoint an interim manager, they won't be included in the next manager to be sacked odds.
