The Premier League’s a lot poorer this afternoon following the dismissal of Phil Brown as Hull manager, but there’s no room for sentiment in betting, so we’ve already moved on to looking at who’ll be next through the door.

The joint-favourites at 5/2 with Paddy Power to succeed the Humber Bridge Hero are Gary Megson and Alan Curbishley, who both have recent experience of coming into a club in the bottom three of the Premier League and keeping them up.

Our hunch is that Curbs will hold out in hope of an approach from a mid-table club, whereas Megson would surely jump at any Premier League job offer after the criticism he received before parting ways with Bolton to clear the path for the man who calls himself Moses.

Uninspiring appointment, you cry? Well, Adam Pearson’s last managerial alteration as a Premier League chairman saw him sack Billy Davies, the man who got Derby promoted against all odds, and replace him with Paul Jewell, the consequence being that they didn’t win another match all season.

Who do you fancy to succeed Phil Brown at the KC? Tell us your tips below…

    Curbs would do a far better job. The mans no chump and he would take non of the shenanigans that Phil Brown put up with or instigated for that matter.
