THE bookies are already taking bets on the next Blackpool manager, with Owen Coyle the current favourite.

The Seasiders are without a manager following the departure of Ian Holloway to Crystal Palace on Saturday.

Skybet opened betting with Steve Thompson as their 5/2 favourite but the Seasiders’ assistant manager, who has been placed in charge of first-team affairs, soon drifted out to 5/1.

A flurry of bets then saw Paul Ince come in from 33/1 to 9/4 amid suggestions of a link-up with his son and the Seasiders’ star man, Tom, but Coyle has since been backed heavily and by Saturday evening was the even-money favourite.
