Next Bristol City Manager Odds

At the present time there are no odds on offer for the Next Bristol City Manager with the recent appointment of Liam Manning.

There are instances when these odds might not be readily available for certain clubs. This could be because the position has only recently been filled, the club is currently performing exceptionally well, or the club has a strong history of standing by its manager through thick and thin.

Who Could Be The Next Bristol City Manager

Taking into consideration managers with the right profile to be appointed at Ashton Gate and contenders in previous betting markets when the Bristol City manager's job has been available, we showcase the following managers to take over at Bristol City. 

Steve Cotterill

Image: skysports

Steve Cotterill built his managerial reputation at Cheltenham Town, guiding the club from the Southern League into the Conference and then the Football League proper. His best period was at cash-strapped Notts County, where he took over in February 2010 and saw the club crowned Champions in April 2010. In total, Cotterill has now managed eleven clubs, including Bristol City!

Frank Lampard

Some may regard the appointment of Frank Lampard as unlikely, but at Derby County, he did an excellent job. His reputation is tarnished because of his time at Everton and Chelsea, two clubs that needed more than just a good manager; they needed a radical overhaul. Ambitious Bristol City and Frank Lampard looking to reboot his career, we have seen a lot worse ideas. 

Nathan Jones

Nathan Jones is a Welsh football manager admired for his dynamic management style. He has managed Charlton Athletic, Luton Town, Southampton, and Stoke City. Jones, previously a professional player, has a reputation for nurturing young talent and implementing an attractive, attacking style of play, earning respect within the football community.

John Eustace


Having been sacked by Birmingham City, some say unfairly, Eustace was appointed Blackburn Rovers manager in February 2024. 

He did an okay job with the Blues, but the ambitious new owners wanted a higher-profile man in charge when they appointed Wayne Rooney.

John Terry

The former Chelsea and England centre-half is looking, we suspect, for his permanent managerial role, having been assistant manager at Aston Villa and Leicester City. On both occasions, he worked under Dean Smith, who naturally will have influenced his chosen style of play. 

Danny Cowley

Danny Cowley had a meteoric rise up the managerial ranks when guiding National League side Lincoln City back to the Football League in 2017 and winning League Two as Champions in 2019. His star was on the rise, and he moved to Championship side Huddersfield Town and then League One outfit Portsmouth, followed by dropping down as division to Colchester United. 

Paul Cook

Paul Cook being appointed at Ashton Gate was mooted previously when Dean Holden (2020-2021) was relieved of his duties. However, since then, he has managed both Ipswich Town and Chesterfield, and now managing a Championship club that wants to play in the EPL does not seem a perfect fit or perfect timing.
