Grant for next managerial hammering?
Avram Grant is 1/3 favourite with William Hill to be the next Premier League manager to leave his club this season. Hills also offer 11/2 Houllier; 11/2 Ancelotti; 10/1 McCarthy; 16/1 Hughes; 16/1 Martinez; 20/1 Kean; Di Matteo; Mancini; No more managers to go this season. 'Mr Grant has been favourite in this market on five different occasions so far, and managed to survive thus far, so he probably isn't even popular with football punters in general, let alone West Ham fans at the moment' said Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe.
